4. Fissures Under the Great Pyramid

One is often hearing about the existence of underground labyrinths and passageways as part of the lore of the Plateau. Edgar Cayce prophesized the discovery of a magnificent Hall of Records accessed through a mysterious door in the paw of the Sphinx. There is all kinds of evidence to suggest that the Ancient Egyptians, or the very advanced beings who preceded them (referred to by the Egyptians as the Neters, the Companions of Horus or the Venerable Ones),  had the ability to cut deep passages into the bedrock with tremendous precision.

Yet aside from this I was astonish to note the existence of fissures in the plateau which run directly under the Great Pyramid. These apparently natural fissures, possibly in one instance a single fissure which crosses beneath the pyramid, can be seen running underneath at the N. W. corner, at the West side, and at the N. E. area of the East side of the pyramid. The fissures have been fitted with stones which at the N. W. corner demonstrate very clearly their being cut to receive the original terrace stones which were fitted over them.

Fissures running under the Great Pyramid West Side are highlighted by white lines.

Above I have tried to show where the fissure very near the N. W. corner has been fitted with stone carefully cut to receive the terrace stones which originally were placed over it. Note the width of this particular fissure. This is not a fine crack in the plateau but a significant and therefore plausibly deep crevice. Being at least a couple of meters wide it could be tens of meters deep.

Thus, it must be recognized:

  1.  That these fissures existed at the time of the building of the pyramid.
  2.  That they were fitted with stones before the pyramid structure was laid on top of them.
  3.  That the fissures were subsequently covered from view by the original terraces.

My questions:

  1. How deep are these fissures?
  2. If very deep were they filled with stone right to their depths?
  3. If only covered to a partial depth by stones fitted into them, was the space left below used for some purpose?
