A text from 440 BC. mentions advanced machines used to build the pyramids of Egypt


For decades, humanity has wondered how the pyramids of Egypt were built? There are, however, many theories on this subject, a text from 440 BC. C., you might have the answer: an advanced old machine.

 The Greek philosopher and historian Herodotus composed "The Histories" in 440 BC. This is considered by many to be his most important work. He mentions ancient archives and traditions, stemming from the politics, geography and customs known in West Asia, North Africa and Greece.

"The Stories" was so transcendent that it laid the groundwork for historical study in our society.

However, and beyond all that he has contributed to civilization, it is possible that among his words he is hiding the truth about a riddle that humanity has been trying to solve for years.

The pyramids of Egypt and their enigma

The pyramids built in ancient Egypt left more questions than answers.

The first pyramid monument built in Egypt dates back to the Third Dynasty, during the reign of Pharaoh Djoser.

This stone building which rose in steps was the beginning of a unique architecture.

Thus, the Saqqara complex, built around 2630 to 2611 BC. C. would open the doors to a new type of supermassive monument. The pyramid was 60 meters high and is believed to have been built in stages; the first, the square part of its base, to a sixth which terminated at its top.

 But it wasn't until Sneferu took the throne that the pyramid was redesigned. This pharaoh erected three pyramids which totally changed the design.

In fact, experts say that the Red Pyramid which was built in the Royal Necropolis of Dahshur was the model used for the Great Pyramid of Giza.

All these monuments have changed the history of architecture, but where are the traces of their construction?

There is not a single ancient text in Egypt that mentions how they were built. Something totally strange when records of other constructions were found.

It has become one of the biggest headaches, not only in archeology, but in society in general.

Cheops and perfection

We only know that with Khufu a new era began in terms of the construction of pyramids. It was thanks to him that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built.

Cheops, along with architect Hemiunu, erected this building in, supposedly, 20 years. Obviously, this is nothing more than a theory that has been accepted by archeology because there is no document supporting it.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has a total volume of 2,583,283 cubic meters. It is the third tallest in the world in terms of volume, but its 146.7 meters high makes it the tallest.

But there is something even more surprising and beyond comprehension to experts: its precision.

Those responsible for building the pyramids erected them with such sophisticated precision that it is not even possible to reproduce them today. It is one of the most advanced works in earthly history ... And no one has documented them?

Well, it is possible that there is a document that speaks of the work done to build them, although it appeared 2,000 years later.

Herodotus and advanced machines

In "The Stories", Herodotus mentions any advanced devices or machines that were used in the construction of at least the Great Pyramid of Giza.

The text says that after placing the stones for the base, "machines" were used to place the ones that went on it.

However, even the same philosopher does not know if it was a single machine that could be moved, or if several machines did the job.

The text excerpt from "The Stories" reads as follows:

"The pyramid was built on steps, in the form of battlements, as it is called, or, according to others, in the form of a large one."

After placing the stones for the base, they put the remaining stones in place by means of machines ...

… The first machine lifted them off the ground to the top of the first step. In addition to this, there was another machine, which received the stone on its arrival and carried it to the second step, from where a third machine made it advance even higher.

Either they had as many machines as there were steps in the pyramid, or maybe they only had one machine, which, being easily moved, moved from one layer to another as we went along. that the stone rose; both reports are provided and I therefore mention both… ”

Historians assume that Herodotus obtained this data from priests during his visit to Egypt.

What did the historian mean by "machines which lifted stones and put them back in their place"?

 While these lines sound more like a conspiracy theory, they are official words written by one of mankind's most important historians.

Is it possible that the ancient Egyptians had completely unknown advanced technology? We do not know, because archaeologists have found no trace of its existence.

It even leads to think that all the pyramids on the planet were built with these possible machines.

There are many possibilities; maybe those responsible for implementing this technology removed them after the job was done. This would explain why no trace was found. The perfect construction of the pyramids has led many to believe that mere humans were unable to erect them on their own and that words of such an important character in history only strengthen these theories.
