How the Great Pyramid At Giza was built, and Why!
  The Grand Gallery 


One of the most interesting aspects of this pump is that the column of water is raised using two forces.  The partial vacuum created above, raises the column of water. Also, the compressed air in the subterranean chamber lifts (like a water ram type of pump) the column of water from below.  These two forces acting together make this a very efficient pump.  Plus, the fire does not "go out" or become extinguished after each cycle.  The fire "smolders" after it creates the partial vacuum, then "flares up" when the vacuum seal is released.

Below are excerpts from the Book Pharaoh's Pump.

The upper diagonal, which is called the Grand Gallery, is also strangely made.  It is less than seven feet wide at the bottom, and about two feet wide at the top.  The ceiling is 28 feet high, and it is 156 feet long.  The blocks that form the walls lean inward, and are not laid in a horizontal plane, but are pitched in, 5 degrees.  This long sloping narrow diagonal, which its high ceiling, and pitched in walls is designed to withstand pressure from without, that is, atmospheric pressure.  In other words a vacuum.  When a vacuum is created in it, the pitched in walls tighten up.  This long narrow diagonal is the abode of the prime mover, FIRE, . . . fire burning in an airtight chamber at its highest tip.
For some unknown reason, no author, in all the literature that has been printed, has ever mentioned this soot pattern on the ceiling of the upper diagonal.
Here is the firing hole.  The ceiling adjacent to it is smoke-stained.  Beyond this hole is found a box-like, rectangular enclosure.  Here were found ashes, and charred bits of wood, mute evidence that, at one time a fire burned within it.  I’ll call it the remains of a fire-box.  Davison was the first to discover this firing hole.  “He crawled into a lower chamber about 20 feet long.  It was quite empty.”
I would like to digress for a moment, and insert a personal observation regarding the smoke stained ceiling.  First of all, it has a definite pattern.  The pattern resembles the tail of a comet, which rushed in from the north and suddenly turned east.  The body is jet black where it enters the firing hole, and becomes grayer and grayer toward the tail.  The tail ends in a point.  The whole smoke or soot pattern, looks as if it might have been fashioned with a huge French curve.  The tail is about 12 feet in length.  It is definitely of aerodynamic design, caused by the violent movement of air rushing in.
Close to the firing hole is a discoloration of a ceiling slab; about the color of light toast,.  This light toast area indicates that here is the spot of nearly perfect combustion.  I’ll guess that this soot black residue is the result of oil soaked wood, ignited in the fire box.  Soaking the wood in oil would cause almost instantaneous ignition.

To find this soot pattern on the ceiling, together with the evidence of burned stone was a great relief to me.  Of all the books, and books, I had read not a single author had mentioned this pattern.  A few mentioned smoke stained stones, in the most cursory way, but none described it.  Where I expected irregular smudges of soot, I found this aerodynamic pattern.  These smudges of soot are as fresh and distinct, as though they were made yesterday, instead of 4,000 years ago.
This long narrow diagonal is the abode of the prime mover, . . . FIRE . . . fire burning in an airtight chamber at its highest tip.
 For some unknown reason, no author, in all the literature that has been printed, has ever mentioned this soot pattern on the ceiling of the upper diagonal.
The walls are made of gray granite blocks cut with marvelous precision.  The vertical joints are so precise and accurate that some defy visual detection.  Even with the sense of touch, it is difficult to detect some of the joints.
Even the protruding edges are as clean and sharp as a straight edge.  There is not a chisel mark on them anywhere.  Such visual evidence indicates that were cut with a diamond saw, either on the job or up the river at the Aswan Quarries.
Man with all his modern machinery, would be hard put to it to duplicate this lost skill of the Pyramid Builders.
This extreme accuracy is a MUST. —It must be absolutely vacuum tight.  One tiny air leak would spell disaster. — No vacuum, no pump.
To the east beyond this fire-box are nooks and crannies.  Through them, explorers pass to examine the outer side of the pump, and in the working area of the fireman.
Here Perring erred. His drawings show the firing hole on the west side.  The firing hole is on the east side.
Right now, I’ll guess out load, that a narrow passage, an exit, will be found leading from this working area, to the northern face; a portal to portal passage for the fireman to get to work.
 Perring’s drawings do not show this oval opening, nor the dome-like ceiling, nor does he indicate that the enclosed bowl is cut in solid rock; but he does show a trapezoidal hole in the area marked ‘stone removed here.’
 The flat mantle-like area may have had a mechanical function. — A seat for a swing valve? — Trapezoidal hole an axis for a swing valve?
 A vacuum removes normal air pressure from this bowl. — Aerated water from below filling the bowl will form a cushion of compressed gas, because gas bubbles are released above the oval opening.
A downflow through the oval opening will compress the gas, and cause a violent whirl-pool action in the bowl, P.D.Q.

 I’ll hazard another guess; that for the most part, this passage is filled with bat dung, and comes out near the 120 foot level.
Details of this fire-box are elusive.  Details may be recorded somewhere, but as yet, I have not found them.
I’ll guess again; that this fire-box was covered with a single slab with a hole in it, and that the hole was covered with a flat stone lid — that the lid and slab were ‘ground in’ with a fine abrasive, in the same manner we ‘grind in’ valves to seats, to make them compression-tight, and vacuum-tight.
Add a thin layer of oil to these ‘ground in’ members, and we have a very effective vacuum seal.  Its modern counterpart is the bell-jar, the rim of which is ground upon a flat glass surface.
There is no part of the interior that is ordinary, or conventional.  All parts are oddly made, and from an ordinary viewpoint, the whole layout of the interior defies a reasonable explanation.  But, when the interior is regarded as a pump, this odd construction, makes sound engineering sense, indeed!
