Isaac Newton was very interested in Egypt! He seems to have believed in the lost Super-civilization. He believed in a pre-Diluvian advanced world, much more so than his own. He believed that the previous people had already worked out all the physical laws, and sought the dimensions of the Egyptian cubit in the circumference of the Great Pyramid. This would give him the circumference of the Earth which would give him the gravitational constant if he plugged the Egyptian cubit into his formulae.
Unfortunately, working with the cubit as determined by Greaves, who was unable to measure the pyramid, the base being strewn with debris, Newton was unable to come to a satisfactory conclusion regarding the exact size of the cubit. The assumption also went that the base was an exact number of cubits, which is problematic.
Khufu, according to legend had a dream. He saw the stars spinning and wished to help the world out by building the great pyramid. He thought his dream might refer to the end of the world. I believe the great pyramid enshrined old sciences (this is what the legend says!),
In fact Newton was AWARE of this, having read books on the pyramids. He thought it was a clue from the past. Newton had an enormous library of thousands of books and in fact books have been written cataloguing exactly what was in his library.
He actually read John Greaves' Pyramidographia as well as other books on Egypt as well the temple of Solomon. He quickly grasped the import, antiquity and implications of the Great Pyramid. He used Greaves' as well as Burattini's measures on the Great Pyramid, though these were inaccurate, and as a result was unable to put the final stamp on his theory of gravitation until 1671, when Jean Picard was able to finally measure a degree of latitude which came to 69.1 English miles.
Newton himself wrote the work: "A Dissertation upon the Sacred Cubit of the Jews and the Cubits of several Nations: in which, from the Dimensions of the Greatest Pyramid, as taken by Mr. John Greaves, the ancient Cubit of Memphis is determined".
High-tech purpose of the pyramids!
The video below claims to be about Newton but begins with the topic of the ancient vimana. This is because of what the pyramid actually was inpired by... pre-diluvian texts extinct in Egypt but actually present to this day in India!
What is a vimana? It means Craft. 'Pushpaka Vimana' means Aerial Flying Craft. These were artificial craft of tens of thousands of years ago... high technology. Some were said to have been pyramid-shaped and three stories. I believe the spaceship-precision of, in particular, the descending corridor of the Great Pyramid actually enshrines vimana-like technology.
All artificial hills, pyramids, stupas, across the world were originally conceived as craft for the fallen angel (Loki is trapped under a huge rock, a pyramid), to return to heaven. Loki/Budh was the monotheistic god. The Khufu version was Khnumm, creator of man. Another monotheistic lord was the sun god. So, why not help this helper of mankind, get back to heaven! Build him a vimana! In fact many plateaus may have been flattened out for this `purpose.' How much did Newton know?
