THE PORTCULLIS OF CHEOPS


THE AUTOMATIC PORTCULLIS SYSTEM OF CHEOPS

The Portcullis system in the heart of Cheops is an enigma. It sits between the King’s Chamber and the Grand Gallery. The Antechamber and the portcullis stones are shown in the center of the reconstruction below.

The three stones provide no more security for the pharaoh’s unfound treasure than one. As a result, there have been all manner of ideas associated with these stones. Some have suggested their weight provides some resonant properties. They have been included in ultra advanced systems to produce microwaves. There are many more proposals. Most of the ideas are subjective or impossible to test or prove.

The following short summary is part of the full mechanic of Cheops detailed in the upcoming book ‘Sailing to Atlantis’. The automated mechanism relies on one of the oldest and simplest known principles – buoyancy. It simply shows how the stones in the antechamber will open and close automatically if water is added.

The actual mechanic can have several variants. Without knowing the exact arrangement of the ropes between the portcullis stones it is not easy to decide which was used. The following is just one possible working example. This version integrates into the full mechanic of Cheops

When the first two stones are roped to the third over the pulleys like the diagram below, the first two stones lift the third one up.

The balance can be changed by simply adding water. When the water level rises to the top of the lower two stones, the buoyancy of the water effectively reduces the weight of the first two stones. At this point the third stone has enough force to pull the two stones up slightly. This opens up a gap beneath the stones (See diagram below).

If the water level keeps on rising, the third stone becomes submerged in water too. This reduces its downward force and the balance of the system shifts again. The first and second stone fall back down to the original levels though now the chamber is flooded with water.

By simply raising and lowering the water in the antechamber, the stones open and close the entrance to the King’s Chamber automatically. The change in water level is linked to the function of the Great Pyramid, which is described in the upcoming book.

‘Sailing to Atlantis’ is an extension of the Ancient Solar Premise (ASP). The Grand ASP deals with the ancient need for water and its uses. Once water is added to ancient structures the functions become clear. Mostly it is as simple as the Portcullis system above. Once the evidence of great water systems is revealed the nature of the prehistory is changed dramatically. For copies see The Great Pyramid Rainmaker.

    Nice pitch Professor Pete; I want to buy a copy

    The idea that water was an integral part of the operation of the anti-chamber is not new. A number of authors have proposed similar ideas to explain the features of the anti-chamber. Probably the first researcher and author to provide a water related explanation for the anti-chamber was Edward Kunkel. He originally published his book titled Pharaoh’s Pump in 1962 and the illustrations in his book are remarkably similar to the images in this article. Certainly the operation of the anti-chamber and how this water related function fits into the function of the rest of the passages and chambers of the Great Pyramid is important to analyze.

      Steven I think Kunkel is one of the best researchers on the subject, but ttbomk he never automated the Portcullis chamber, without adding an extra pipe between the QC and the first stone. Why introduce things that are not there?
      The analysis of the rest of the pipe work is ready to go, just wondering if anyone came up with this very simple mechanism to automatically open and close the portcullis doors. Obviously without adding extra bits and pieces. Kunkel failed in the working mechanic because he missed a vital part of the geology of the plateau imo. He also never grasped the full function by all accounts. Will share soon.

        What page of Kunkel’s book, Pharaoh’s Pump are you refreing to? I don’t think that he added a pipe from the Queen’s chamber. His explanation of the anti-chamber was that it operated automatically.

        I have never seen any mechanic like that from Kunkel, are you saying its there Steven??

    very interesting.i personally believe the pyramid was neither a tomb nor treasure store but a machine..probably a power generator..and portal.

      Hi John

      I will be showing the working mechanic soon along with the phases of the build, it did work at one point, sure Egypt could use one of two of its functions now.
      Cenotaph only in the end. Gigawatts of power available based on very basic science.
      Tag for follow and all will be revealed or just pick up a copy of the upcoming book Sailing to Atlantis

    “When the water level rises to the top of the lower two stones, the buoyancy of the water effectively reduces the weight of the first two stones. At this point the third stone has enough force to pull the two stones up slightly.”

    Did you make an actual calculation on this theory? Or tried that with granite stones? Because I don’t buy that the weight reduction is significant enough that one stone will lift 2 others.
    Also, the stones where never intended to seal off anything, let alone water. So water would float freely around them. So what would be the purpose of that mechanism, if it would work as you describe?

      Hello

      it depends on how the ropes between the pulleys are arranged. I think of it like a lever with unequal arms that is slightly heavier on the two block arms when there is no water. when the water is added it simply changes the balance. I have a simple graphic that shows the principle, it is the same with pulleys and unequal levers. The water reduces the weight of the stones by just under half. It is a significant force.
      The purpose and its integration into the function will be explained shortly. Just trying to find out if this mechanic for the Port Cullis has ever been proposed before at the moment. The ultimate functions are simply an extension of some of the ideas in the Ancient solar Premise.
