On The Power Of Three

great-pyramid-of-giza-khufu-cheops-egypt-01Although the power of numbers has long been held for centuries as real, today we think of numbers more in terms of numerology which is akin to astrology and things that are considered part of mysticism. However, the significance of the number three has been consistently overlooked. In the physical world the pyramid is the spacial or volume representation of the number three. It has long been held for a special significance as in Christianity where it stands for the Holy Trinity – The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost. In Eastern philosophies, it’s the Guru, The Guide, and The Master.

The triangle is a particularly interesting geometric figure. There are different kinds of triangles: the isosceles, the equilaterals and the Pythagorean triangle. If we take the equilateral triangle and extend it into space, we have the three-sided pyramid. But if we look at the pyramids that were constructed in Egypt and elsewhere, they are four sided.

The base of the four-sided pyramid is actually a square and each side of the pyramid is a three-pointed equilateral triangle. Four – the square – is the foundation, the most stable of structures, built with four corners. At the top of the pyramid is the capstone which we can see on the US dollar bill as levitating above the pyramid with an all-seeing eye in the center. Perhaps this eye suggests some kind of knowledge inherent in the pyramid that even those who designed the dollar recognized.

Some have suggested that the pyramid had more purposes. Some mystics held that the pyramids were points on the planet that attracted cosmic energy from space , that in some way created an energy that would enable the dead Pharaoh to pass over into the afterlife, or even that they served the purpose of stabilizing the planets’ magnetic energy by being focal points. Others contend that the Pyramids were the place that certain ancient orders performed ceremonies and tested novices into the order or perhaps a place of sacrifice.

It is possible that these are all a bit far-fetched for most, but they do present interesting approaches to view a mysterious object that has eluded definition for so many centuries and has defied clear and precise explanation by scientists and mathematicians.

Others have suggested that the pyramid represents the physical plane, while the inverted (invisible) pyramid, extending out from the capstone, represents the unseen realm. The capstone is the point at which the physical and invisible plane intersect and the point where cosmic energy enters the corporeal plane and is in some way transmuted to create a stable energy.

Although science would argue: “where is the proof?”, what is the basis of all this conjecture about pyramids? I would say, how about using your imagination? The eye on the capstone of the pyramid does suggest some additional knowledge about the pyramids. The fact that the capstone is not mounted on the rest of the pyramid also suggests that that knowledge is still not revealed or known at this time. Perhaps, a fresh look at the pyramid, would show more of its purpose and we need not enter THE TWILIGHT ZONE to do it.
