THE WELL-SHAFT

summary

MY AMBITION

I want to suggest that the hill inside the pyramid could be higher than it seems.
If I am right, it could be very important.

INTRODUCTION

The Great pyramid is built on a hill (grey).
Between the summit of the hill (A) and the botton of the Grand Gallery (B), a deep and thin round well crosses the masonry (about 80 cm x 15 m). It is called "the well shaft".
It seems that it has been dug through the layers of the pyramid to allow guards to leave the pyramid after the pharao's burial.
A hollow, to the summit of the hill, has been plugged with mortar. It seems that a robber dug the mortar. The hole in the mortar is called "The grotto".

It is the official explanation. It seems to be obvious, but I would like to suggest you that a part of this masonry is not the one of the layers of the pyramid.

DEMONSTRATION

Let's suppose:
Pharaoh wants to dig a narrow and deep shaft through a hill (15 cm x 15 cm x 10 m), between the summit of the hill and an underground cave.

It is very difficult to do that because Egyptians didn't have a trepan (a tool like the one used to find petroleum).

The solution:
First, they must dig a large and deep well (about 2 m x 2 m x 10 m).
Then, they will stack stones in the well, with a hole inside each stone (15 cm x 15 cm). (The alignment of holes forms a shaft.)
In the underground cave, they build a squared wall to uphold the breakthroughs stones.

Put your mouse over / out the picture to compare these two hypothesis.
Imagine that you are inside the well shaft.
In the two examples you must admit that you would see the same things, that my hypothesis is believable..

THE ROBBER

Put your mouse over / out the picture
(When you are over, wait and see)

A robber (a Very Important Person, perhaps a pharao, a prince or a high priest) finds the underground cave.
He sees a hole to the ceiling, the opening of a shaft.
He decides to find where this shaft leads.
He enlarges the shaft and finds the GG.
He decides to use the underground cave as his tomb.
After the burial, a part of the underground cave is plugged with mortar to protect his tomb. Later, a robber dig a hole in the mortar.

VERIFICATION

Official explanation

My hypothesis

If the well is dug through the layers of the pyramid, the stones of the well should be as high as the layers of the pyramid.

According to the plan of GOIDIN & DORMION, it seems to be true over about 14 meters and false below.

But, according to the plan of MARAGIOLO & RINALDI, it seems to be false under 21,7 meters (under the Keen passageway).

Stones of the well should be relatively small to be inserted more easily in the well.

According to the plan of GOIDIN & DORMION, it seems to be true under about 14 meters.
But, according to the plan of MARAGIOLO & RINALDI, it seems to be true under 21,7 meters (under the Keen passageway).

Stones of the well should be made with limestone of relatively bad quality, because they are the one of the internal masonry.

Stones of the well should be made with limestone of relatively good quality.

Joints between stones of the well should be bad, because blocks of the internal masonry are carved badly.

Joints between stones of the well should be good.

The vertical joints between stones of the well should be unfrequent.

The vertical joints between stones of the well could be more frequent because, to fill the well, it should be easier to insert half blocks.
The vertical joints should be oriented E/O and N/S alternately.

The well is dug from top to bottom.

The well is dug from bottom to top.

.

My hypothesis explains how someone found the way between the grotto and the gallery so easily,.

.

My hypothesis explains why the digging of this part of the well is so bad.

I think that egyptologists know the well shaft very well.
So, they will be able to arbitrate.

HERODOTUS

When HERODOTUS went to Egypt, a high priest explain him:

This pyramid is the one of CHEOPS (say KEOPS)
Before RHAMPSINITES there was only good kings and good laws, but CHEOPS which reigned after him [....]
(In another text of HERODOTUS, RHAMPSINITES seems to designate the RAMSSES period, more than 1000 years later)
He forbids sacrifices [....]
He is not buried in his own tomb [....]

Maybe, HERODOTUS made a confusion, the high priest wanted to talk him about the intruder.

The hieroglyph CHEPS (or CHOPS) designate a person which have very important function, something like a V.I.P, a Very Important Person). He is maybe a king, a prince or a high priest.

It is possible that this hieroglyph appears in the intruder's name as in HATCHEPSOUT.

It is also possible that the priest who met HERODOTUS, wanted to say " this V.I.P ". In this case the hieroglyph "CHEPS" can be absent in his name.

Who is he? Maybe ARISOU

ARISOU

Indeed, ARISOU (well known as JARSU) was a Syrian soldier which exercised the power during two or three years after the death of SETHI 2. (20 th Dynasty)

He is known to have robbed possessions of Egyptians, to have considered gods as men and to have not offered sacrifices in temples, a reputation that seems correspond to the Cheops's one

It seems that this man didn't respect the Egyptian's customs. It could explain why he didn't hesitate to rob and to invest a predecessor's tomb, the one of KHUFU.

I think that, after his death, he was buried in the underground cave. The underground cave was partially plugged with mortar. A link was dug between the ascending passageway and the tunnel that CHEPS (ARISOU?) had dug. The tunnel was plugged near this link to simulate that the tunnel turns and communicate with the internal distribution. The last 9 meters, near the entry, where also plugged. Later, in 815 AC AL MAMUN unplugged these 9 meters, discovered a tunnel which turn, visited the pyramid but didn't discover the intruder's tomb (probably, he also dug a hole between the ascending passageway and the descending one).

It is very simple to verify that.You must look at the WEST wall of the tunnel (on your right when you go inside), just where the tunnel turns. If you see an anomaly, for example the inside layers of the pyramid that are broken, it will prove that my idea is true.

I have colored some stones to show you:
- The green stone: I see nothing, but it is at the good place.
- The purple stone. A very big bloc with two or three traces of levers (?). A square hole seems to be dug inside.
- The yellow stone: It seems to be embedded in the purple stone. That could explain traces of levers.

Everybody can do that. If you are currently in Egypt,
do that for me please and describe me what you see..
