Driving on Air and a prophetic 'Stone Age' Technology against Global Warming

Record high temperatures, increasing numbers, duration, and intensities of storms, floodings, wildfires, droughts... How will climate change proceed? And how fast?
After decades of public and scientific debates concerning the causes and parameters, the recent trend is clearly speaking for a severe change of the climate within an alarmingly short time. The atmosphere and oceans are showing signs of a potential escalation towards rapidly deteriorating life conditions on earth. Nobody can stop the accumulating methane gas that is escaping faster and faster out of the permafrost regions and seabeds, triggered by the heat-trapping global greenhouse made
of CO2. The greenhouse effect of methane surpasses CO2 by 25 times or more. We can't see accurate computer scenarios when no one is able to feed them with complete and correct data. When the amount of the released methane, plus the additional 'natural' CO2, is fairly unknown, no - however smart - computer can tell us the truth. The reliability of the climate models is, mainly, questioned by the climate sceptics. But what is when global warming is progressing much faster as predicted? It has become difficult to communicate the steeply rising degree of urgency to the public. The complex blend of variables makes it hard, to predict the pace of change.

More and more warning voices are leaving the conservative establishment and their classic economic priorities. The logical concept of basic international contracts and rules, to enforce the reduction of greenhouse emissions, seems not enough to tackle the scary development. It is like scratching on the surface of the (melting) "iceberg"...
The question is not anymore, only, how to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. We will also have to find a way to reduce the temperatures directly. Planet Earth has become a kind of vast industrial stress experiment that is damaging our natural habitat in the universe, the fauna and flora, the soil, the oceans, and the atmosphere. We are studying and documenting that depressing process in plain detail so that we can learn about it, daily, in the news and science forums. Reports of disintegrating life zones pull a lot of media interest. New revolutionary green technologies, on the other hand, or keen ideas of geoengineering (however weird they may appear), are rarely introduced in the mainstream media. Some have been attacked or ridiculed. Many useful inventions or findings for a better, greener, easier way of life can hardly make it to a major market, or it happens very, very slow... If there is a 'stop button' for the doom, where is it?
 
Organic photovoltaics could become a smart technology to generate electric power because certain versions could become cheap and lightweight. OPV can be produced even in transparent layers. Screens and windows can contain it. Hopefully, we will see skyscrapers coated with organic or silicon-based photovoltaics. OPV could partly recharge electric cars. Usually, we are throwing away up to 30 clean free kilometers per day. (Panasonic, Toyota, and Tesla, and others are allegedly doing something about it, currently. Steps in the right direction at an interesting point of time considering the introduction of the first Solar Cell in 1954(!) by researchers at the Bell Laboratories).
And what did we achieve in terms of electric recuperation? While certain commuter trains were featuring that technology, already a century ago, most cars were using sheer friction to slow the ride, thereby producing millions of tons of unhealthy sorts of dust. 

Thousands of billions of dollars went in the development of the modern automobiles (and their infrastructures), running with
mostly one or two persons on board, emitting loads of greenhouse gases, killing forests, animals, and plants. The industrial automobile is selling ores, oil, and rubber. The cars are heavy, thirsty, dirty, and they still can't fly (unseen certain spectacular developments by companies of admirable courageous private inventors and investors). Cars were tailored to reach the workplace, daily, or a mid-distance weekend destination. The easier to build and to maintain electric car is said to have a heavy battery and it takes a bit long for charging, not mentioning the economic hurdles. And, yet, it's not just solar-, hydro-, and wind energy, enabling electric mobility - a situation that is rather 'fueling' the opponents of the electric car.

Obviously, forgotten, or nearly unknown: the old and simple compressed air car. When we would combine that super lightweight technology with a small electric compressor and photovoltaic layer all over the bodywork, the air compression tank could refill in daylight. Speed and range are mainly limited by the possible air pressure and volume of the
thermo insulated compression tank, and by the design of the motor. Creating these air pressure engines could perhaps 'save' parts of the, yet, existing combustion engine industry (maybe, along with a next generation of hydrogen-based combustion drives where the main tank contains water).
A lightweight compression tank made of composite materials could be integrated in the bodywork, nearby, supporting the stiffness. That might become a powerful, spacious, and lightweight vehicle. It could also become a very safe car because the compressed air tank could be connected with an outside&inside airbag system. Millions of people could have been saved from the consequences of accidents when retrorockets would be an integral part of the safety architecture of every automobile. In a compressed air car, an ejected jet stream could assist emergency braking when the tire traction is not enough. It could work like simple 'water rockets'. Emergency jet assist braking by ejecting air and water could stop a car fast, clean, effective!

Besides the electric car, the compressed air car could be the most affordable and elegant way to go. But the number of
involved industries would be rather small. Such a car would be dirt cheap. It could make the customer fairly independent. The engine would not produce much heat. That means the engine parts can be made of lightweight materials. Compressed air cars could have every thinkable design, whatsoever. They can be made for delivery of Pizza, or they could transport your family. They could, as well, work in form of a school bus or as a tractor. When a small tank for biogas or hydrogen is connected, additionally, besides the compressed air tank, the power of the engine can be further reinforced. An inverse method could be useful too: Air compression to generate electric power for driving. The air pressure tank will weigh far less than any known battery. Further advantages could be a higher longtime efficiency and a least possible complexity to build it. And the toxicity and recycling issues of the batteries? ...Not a problem with a tank that is containing dry compressed air; made of composites to stand a very long time!

It will depend on how good, how light, how cheap, and how 'green' the coming generation of batteries for electric driving and flying can show. The efforts and costs to get them is, already, insane (though, necessary). However, the simplicity and the low weight speaks for parallel research on the air compression drive technology, offering a rather simple way of efficient civil mobility. The scalable energy density
profile (per mass and volume) could make it interesting for aviation, too. To build an air pressure tank stronger, very safe, and lightweight is, today, possible and likely easier than making batteries of same energy capacity and weight. Older scientific studies do not mention the use of modern materials and their dramatic weight reduction that can be achieved, today. Also heating and cooling, thermal recuperation, and the compressor technology has improved since and could improve further. So the claim that an air compression system is technically less appropriate than a typical electric system is, perhaps, not (anymore) entirely true when we consider all the economic and environtal aspects. Certain combinations, e.g. in the form of a hybrid, could throughout complete the list of technical advantages and options for a smart, clean, economic, or even independent driving experience. The air compression car is yet running far behind in the shadow of the electric car while the materials and components could be, in the meantime, better, lighter, and cheaper than they were decades ago, while the batteries are desperately struggling to loose weight. The cost for more research is, likely, a bargain, compared to the planetary scale of devastation, and the economic chain of dependencies, caused by any(!) sort of environmentally problematic traffic system that is used by a billion of people all over the globe!

Here is one example for the compressed air drive technology (The very city-specific design is certainly not showing the limits...)

In the near future, the cars could get airborne. Retractable wings could make them flying tight over
green speedways. The 'Ground Effect Vehicle' could become a clean solution to close the gap between driving and flying because a GEV could have retractable wings and wheels, so that it can drive downtown, right after a foot-level flight over a green intercity expressway (yes, why not with lawn on them). Controlling the traffic safety of GEVs, by modern computers, should be easier than running a classic car, driverless, through the city rush hour. A GEV could be propelled by electric impeller jet drives. The retractable wings can be designed smaller as of a conventional plane, but they would increase the active photovoltaic surface by far (bigger exposed surface as of a conventional SUV, or so). Interesting is also that they can travel over water, and over snow, and ice, or over sands, or over marshland... Certain versions will even lift off and land vertically (VTOL). 

Time is needed to make tools and toys different or better, but time is running out due to the runaway development of the average atmospheric and oceanic parameters. We need a radical reforestation policy asap, photovoltaics virtually everywhere, Biopolymers and Biocomposites, wooden materials wherever making sense, and less burning, mining, and smelting. Hopefully, wooden log homes will become more popular but in connection with significant reforestation campaigns. We could use more Carbon in our building materials (e.g. timber) but we need to get it out of the atmosphere (more forests would do that). Storms, and earthquakes, and even fire can not so easily destroy a properly built log home. Lightweight eco-friendly drives may allow to surpassing the traditional paradigm of 'making & moving by burning'. Many sorts of plants, besides cotton, can be used to make superb fibers and textiles with very specific properties, e.g. hemp etc... Some can be used in the form of composites, to create all sorts of durable and lightweight products. Why not eco-friendly wearables made of Natural Fibers instead of petroleum-based chemical textiles... How about silent wind turbines, designed to use the funnel effect, embedded into the common architecture for charging the batteries inbuilt in the walls, nearby improving the thermal insulation of your house, just like the photovoltaic roof tiles...

Sand dams are a clever and well proven rural irrigation strategy, creating oases in desert conditions, working almost like a miracle. At the moment we have quite a lot of arid land on earth! We could perhaps learn to survive on a slightly warmer rainforest planet, but certainly not on an overheated planet with raging superstorms and flooding. 'Terra Forming' is a term that was meant for the future exploration of other planets. But besides settling on Mars, or so, we might be well advised to launch a Terra Reforming project on earth. And when it comes to farming, why do we use so much pesticides and fertilizers? It is a huge technical and economic effort to pull a few percent more fruit out of the soil, but how are the true costs looking at the end of the day? We have to rethink what economy should do and what it should not do to man and nature. Since we have learned of the urgent need to protect our environment and climate, it should become, politically and financially, easier to invent or propose smarter things and visions for happy people and a happy planet.


Once, we were told that a significant rise in the sea level could happen in 500 years or so, then in 100 years... It is getting obvious that the global warming process will be threatening presently living generations (not only in the likely case of an 'Abrupt Global Warming' scenario). Meanwhile, all sorts of severe weather are haunting us in many places on earth, daily. We have expected it, we have seen it coming, though, yet, we're burning oil and coal as usual. So many ingenious people have presented great ideas over the past decades, but the breakthrough is hindered by an, obviously, distorted understanding of how our blue planet works. The concern of earning less, seems outweighing the fear of sitting at an empty table in a storm-damaged home, with a car in the garage that cannot even swim, attacked by flooding and lightning. Still, some people claim that it's not all coming from mankind's carbon emissions, or that it is, mainly, the solar factor changing the climate etc... Looking at the graphs, however, it could be too late for that discussion.


We need an Air Conditioner for Planet Earth!  


The utopia A TIME OF GOLDEN SKIES describes a fairly crazy sounding fictional concept. The protagonists/adventurers learn that the Great Pyramid of Giza has been secretly identified as a gigantic shooting device, a thermodynamic system of gas ex
plosion chambers, created to eject liquefied gold through the upper two diagonal 'airshafts', so fast and so high into the sky that it can reach or surpass the top layers of the atmosphere, high enough to cover great parts of the earth with gold particles, just like a global molecular confetti rain, or so. The process shall enhance the infrared reflectivity of the planet, to reduce the average temperatures of the otherwise rapidly heating up surface, atmosphere, and oceans. The Great Pyramid - a divine/alien/human installation to prevent extinction on Earth?! Yes, that was a part of my initial idea for a Christian faith-oriented science fiction adventure story, partly inspired by certain mysterious prophecies in the Bible. However, the longer I was pulled into that topic, the more I had to wonder: "Could it even be true?"

In the meantime, a leading Professor, of a renown German Institute of
Thermodynamics, has roughly calculated (scalable) the necessary pressure to around 3500 bar to occur in the 'King's Chamber' for escalating a 10kg liquid mass of gold to fly into near earth space, pushed through the northern and southern s.c. 'Air Shafts'. That is a similar pressure occurring as in certain Common Rail Diesel motors. Generating that energy could be achieved by a reacting sled-piston-compressed gas mix from the so-called 'Grand Gallery'. Hydrogen, methane, and other light rising gases can be generated by e.g. pyrolysis and decomposition, in the deepest chamber, the 'Subterranean Chamber'. A first initial gas explosion in the s.c. 'Queen's Chamber', and the adjacent access corridor, shall produce enough sudden pressure to push a gigantic piston sled upwards, running on roller bearings inside the aslant 'Grand Gallery'. That will compress all the air and gas mix from the GG into the KC... But while trying to understand the 'pyramid bang', we may first have to look at a few fundamental thoughts...

The 'King's Chamber', located centrally inside of an artificial mountain of rock, is certainly solid enough to withstand a far higher pressure as in a Diesel motor. Thus, it could, normally, push significant masses of a precious metal very high, toward the northern and the southern skies and countries, in the gaseous form, to get spread by jet streams or by the Coriolis force etc... The diagonal angles of these remarkable shafts, and their specific design, could throughout indicate the intended function as acceleration- or gun-runs, with their over 60m
(!) effective lengths allowing unprecedented long ballistic trajectories of a liquid dense metal material (becoming a gas during its hypersonic flight). Because the air friction, at such multiple supersonic velocities, will be, furtherly, heating up the liquid metal. It will transform into the gaseous state while trapped in the slipstream behind an (e.g.) shock-burned ceramic lump of clay... The liquefied charges are being pushed by the gluing/sealing clay (or plaster) inside the shaft, or, maybe, through special embedded tubes. Certainly, the inner walls of the shafts/tubes will get a thick gilding, thus reducing the friction. Specs and details may become subject to research, but I hope, the physical principles hinted, here, appear basically plausible enough to consider that roughly presented, seemingly 'absurd' suggestion (after the initial laugh has calmed down). Someone attempted or rather planned ahead for the eons to come, enabling rescue of human life and nature on earth. Someone who ruled or influenced the deep ancient past (at least) and, who, obviously, could see sharply into the future.

Pre-installed vertical grooves are to find in the 'Antechamber', an access room made of granite, leading to the KC. It is apparently designed for a huge 'high load' valve system consisting of three massive bulkheads, or portcullis. Presumably, they are as best to be built from steel, obviously pulley-connected to the giant sled-piston system in the Grand Gallery (also a rust-resistant steel construction to stand the dynamic forces, the big range of temperatures, and the humidity). The vertical rails, for closing the three bulkheads/portcullis (thereby to ignite the reaction in the KC), will have to be anchored in these said granite grooves that are carved in by the ancient masons (the grooves are partly damaged but likely repairable). That triple portcullis valve system will be defining how much pressure the red granite block lined King's Chamber can take, thus, how far the gold gas can fly in the slipstream behind a leading nose of ceramics which is keeping the golden liquid and gas jet on track. 54 little niches, meant to contain the roller bearings for the piston sled in the GG, had been carved into the ledges (again, by the ancient masons!). Normally, the necessary interior installations and repair works could be completed by mortal humans of today with stuff that is to find in a building materials & hardware store.

The mysterious five 'Relief Chambers', stacked on top of the King's Chamber, will as well contain inflammable gases. Their reaction shall dampen AND increase the pressure in the KC, at the same time! Their counteracting
cascade-like reaction will happen in a prompt succession, within a fraction of a second, ignited by the piezo effect occurring between the stone beams on top and below each chamber. Between the ceiling beams, the gas can flow in and out as they had not been made airtight, intentionally! The countless quartz particles will produce sparking, due to the sudden change of static pressure in all the contact points. That firing cascade will stretch the duration and the maximum gas pressure in the KC. Splashing water, in the 'Stone Sarcophagus', has now enough time to steam up thereby increasing the insane gas pressure inside the KC, even more! The highest attainable pressure will finally release the clay-sealed gold charges, pushing them through the upper two shafts, then whizzing high into the northern and into the southern sky (there is still an important mechanism to ensure the synchronicity but it would take too much space to tell, here).

It is, of course, a good question, how high the gold charges need to climb. When you look at the map, you will find a lot of mainland in the north (east of Europe and west of Russia) and a bit more in the south of Giza (the entire African land mass down to the Cape). Interestingly, the  unequal  angles of the two upper shafts could match the two different ballistic requirements to reach as much as possible of these landmasses, after the reentry. Some of the precious metal gas will be leaving the charges while ascending, just like a
kind of global sprinkler system. The extreme density of the ballistic flight mass will be penetrating the air, highly efficiently, spreading out an invisible veil of gold on that same globe that our species had sprinkled with blood and deprivation, over thousands of years.

Gold is extremely effective covering large surfaces with surprisingly small masses so that a very thinly gilded surface can be reflecting highest levels of infrared radiation. A gold coin is enough to gild a full-size sculpture of a rider and his horse! We need, of course, not a visibly closed gold coating of the earth's surface. Just a transparent, invisible veil of gold particles is enough. That cloud of gold could be partly orbiting the planet and partly falling back down to cover the dry land. It will remain as an active reflector, as long as it occurs in the sky or in the upper layer of the dry surface of the earth. Every single gold atom, in the low orbit, in the atmosphere, or on the ground, will be fighting Global Warming whilst increasing the infrared reflectivity (Albedo) of our planet!

Yes, that 'Stone Age' mega machine is meant to gild our planet, to pause or halt Global Warming for a certain time, long enough, so that we can have the opportunity (mercy would be the better term) to 'clean' our motherland in space, rethink our technical haste, and greedy habits, our questionable ways of transport and food production, and our bizarre social-economic concepts of wealth distribution. Perhaps, we can finally end political or racial unfriendliness and cruel traditions, replacing them with a deeply engraved desire for love and peace, in our hearts and minds... hopefully, humanity can opt for life before running out of time and options.  

Many Ancient Alien theorists are expecting a powerful alliance, or a delegation of alien astronauts, coming back to earth in an unknown future. Certain ancient cultures, traditions, and religions stressed the return of their gods as an inevitable core element of their belief concept. That wish, hope, faith, or fear remained immanent in ancient traditions, rites, texts, and buildings, reaching back to the stone age. Pyramids and temples have mainly to do, somehow, with the expected God-given eternal life, or the belief in it, like the expectation in something that will happen
, indubitably, in the future. Interestingly, after centuries of enlightenment when it became - scientifically seen - pure 'nonsense' or 'supersticion', the ancient dream of immortality made it on the discussion board of modern science ethics. In an age of supercomputers, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing of lung tissue, liver, kidneys, veins, or bones, you will scratch your head and think again... Perhaps you may ask your local Pastor concerning the future of mankind. What will he say when you allow him one single sentence? When he is leading a Biblically oriented congregation, he might say something like: "The Son of Man and His Kingdom of Heaven will return to bring eternal life, removing fear and terror forever, but it will make a difference if He will find us looking up, or running away."

Could the Great Pyramid made of 6.25 million tons (estimated total mass) of seamlessly set 2.5 tons heavy stone blocks (average), take such a high pressure in her red granite block armored King's Chamber, for propelling the instantly liquifying Gold so high into the sky? Perhaps daily, during the coming decades, or centuries even? Could she distribute the gaseous gold towards the northern and the southern hemisphere, reaching far out, thus covering the globe with a super thin golden layer that shall be reflecting more and more of the infrared radiation of the sun? Could that ancient enigmatic monument be meant to halt the terrible dynamics of Global Warming caused by our (obviously expected by the ancient builder/s) industrial societies of the modern age? Can it give us enough extra time to overcome mankind's economic think barriers, destructive habits, and harmful technologies? Could it make us sometimes 'giving' to each other instead of selling, 'receiving' instead of buying? Could we sometimes learn to become a human family of love and peace? Could we eventually connect to potentially existing interstellar, or intergalactic networks out there? Can we even become a new building block of the Kingdom of Heaven? Or will we choose to live on as economic conquerors and warriors, ruining our blue house in space?  

Obviously, the Great Pyramid of Giza is (in addition to her other functions) a planetary life rescue apparatus, to say it in a nutshell. Her many mathematical, numerological, and geometrical references reflect
the character of a divine memorial. It's a preeminent monument that proves the serious intention and power to fix the fundamental life conditions on earth! Certain incorporated sacred numbers and features are - without a doubt - indicating Biblical connections, as several researchers had noticed, already, centuries ago. The Giza Pyramids were built to perform things surpassing everything a Hollywood filmmaker could dare to dream.

Isaiah, a prophet of the Old Testament, had announced an 'altar of stone', important enough to become a 'sign and a witness to the LORD of hosts'. A written prophecy, obviously, expected to be met in a remote future. That 'altar of stone' shall be located in the 'midst of the land of Egypt' and 'at its border'. 'Border' translates into "Giza", the elevated frontier point between Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. It is not believed that Isaiah had seen or known the Giza Pyramids, or if he even knew more about their specific technical functions. I guess that God had let him use prophetic words, hinting Giza, but concurrently protecting it as long as necessary because, otherwise, the monument site would have become a focus of worse destruction and seizure, like countless other significant places of conflicts in the human history. The specified location, however, and the term 'altar' is fitting perfectly because it could hint an elevated place to sacrifice something of value.

A second object of stone that is mentioned in Isaiah 19:19, the 'stone column' or 'pillar of stone', is still standing in a place that is, biblically, named 'Ir-Ha-Heres', the 'city of destruction'. Once, it was known as 'Heliopolis' (Sun City) in ancient Greek, or 'IUNU' in Egyptian language. Huge temples had been destroyed and then removed from there. Today it is a district of Cairo. One single obelisk survived, miraculously, still pointing skyward, in a little park, illuminated at night...


Will A TIME OF GOLDEN SKIES remain science fiction or could it even be?
Could the Great Pyramid of Giza become the last way out to halt Global Warming, nearby mitigating those notorious warmongering attitudes of certain nations and individuals, finally helping the leaders to see and feel how precious the gift of nature and human life, actually, is before everything fades? Has the 7th World Wonder been defying time for so long, to bail out mankind? ...Inviting us to invest (or sacrifice) into a future of life, and can we fix that ancient prophetic monument to let it embrace our (yet) blue planet with its miraculous arms of gold?

As it appears, we can still do something against Global Warming. It will require getting humble, forgiving, wondering, learning, and looking up to the skies & heavens...

>...Elijah remembered, “I have read about an interpretation of a prehistoric power plant. There was an author assuming generators, inside, for free energy or so...”

“The most popular one, of those alternative theories considers the Grand Gallery as a resonance chamber for Helmholtz-generators that can reinforce sound waves and recovering energy from the sound. Others believed it had been prepared for building a nuclear power plant or a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. But they were never used because particularly high levels of radiation would've been measured in there, of course. I would normally regard all those interpretations as interesting hypothesis, since a nuclear power plant requires enormous shielding. The thicker the walls are, the safer it becomes. Possible, that such functions would also be conceivable, but the list of specific prerequisites for this is just too long. You would have to add a lot of extra parts, in there, to get a functioning nuclear power plant. But these narrow shafts could lead support lines to charge a spaceship that is perched on the pyramid, like on a land base. It could be parked and fueled by a power source in the chambers, somehow. If it were not for this Dixon's ball and the bronze double-hook, that would - admittedly - become my favorite theory. The German filmmaker Roland Emmerich had used similar scenes in his famous “Stargate” movie. A huge pyramidal spaceship, hollow underneath, sits down on a pyramid serving as a solid maintenance basement. Such a land base would be extremely stable and could provide an energy source inside, in theory. You may wonder, though, how economically effective such an energy power plant could ever be when you keep in mind the highly complex and massive construction effort.“

“Sure, I see. But you're talking about a hypothetical alien technology that should be normally highly sophisticated, compared to our achievements of today. Are square based mountains of stone blocks really what we would have to expect from such an advanced civilization who can travel in space, John?”

“To expect eternal life in the reality, I think, is the most important clue for an adequate understanding of the ancients and their belief. The planned time of operation plays an important role. What if it was not built for just a century as we would do it, but for many millenniums to operate? This titanic structure could then perhaps turn out as ecologically and economically efficient during vast spaces of time. We know little about the tools. It looks partly just too perfect when you overlook the damages and weathering. The buildings on and around Giza look somehow not as if it could've fallen very hard to the builders. Each one of the millions of stone blocks is unique! No building company could produce something like this, today, and in such a way of construction. It means to manufacture each stone, individually, but so that it connects perfectly with its surrounding neighbors!

“How about modern CNC technology. It could perform such individual building elements, or not?” Elijah gave as food for thought.

“A modern computer graphic program could indeed design these stones in that way. As best with a random number generator. Then you need to cut them using modern CNC technology, based on finite element methods FEM, to achieve precise fit.”

“Yes, Molds for liquid concrete would, therefore, be out of the game, as well as any conventional form of serial cutting. It's, actually, completely impossible to finish so gradually different stones by hand and to fit them in so exactly as we can find there...” John showed them pictures from the site... 

“...There's only one option left that could offer a way to achieve such results by using archaic stonework techniques, making that grade of perfection comprehensible. A combination of two complementary methods... So far, the ideas focused on either hewing and grinding masonry, or concrete cast using a method of molding. They had namely once discovered hairs, sticking in a built-in stone, looking out of the surface...”

“...What? hairs?! You mean... real hairs of humans ...or animals, sticking out of stones?! How crazy is that?!”

“As a matter of fact! Hairs, air bubbles, and straws as well! If you take a stone from limestone, grind it smooth, and a second one, and then a third block, leaving a free gap in between, it can be filled with liquid concrete of the same chemical composition. You just need a front fairing or a fourth stone... That may lead eventually to this seamless result. It requires precise mixing and homogeneity of the liquid material. The final result, however, would look just like the carved stones, and yes, in this case, each stone will show unique dimensions. No matter if it was molded or carved. Without any default marks in the joints because the concrete runs smoothly into every crevice! Since a super hard mortar has been found in several places in the pyramid, we know at least that they worked with liquid or malleable materials. Liquid limestone gets perfectly aligned with the carved neighbor blocks. That could be an explanation how they did it. Carved stones were forming a gap that was then filled up with limestone plaster. It could address certain essential questions concerning the building and transport methods. After molding and curing, the visible surfaces would be finely shaped by grinding with sanding slats and wet sand.”

“Sounds pretty logical, John. That's a plausible explanation for that perfection, right?”

“Possible! It could explain the very accurate set of limestone blocks against each other. It solves certain fundamental problems of the construction and the logistics. Transport of loose materials and water is, of course, much easier to accomplish without any machines or railways. The practical building difficulties would be significantly reduced. But this explains, by no means, the distinctive structural design of the Great Pyramid. The huge granite blocks, inside, had been definitely cut, not cast.”...<
