The Great Pyramid Secret: Egypt's Amazing Lost Mystery Science Returns

Overview

The Great Pyramid Secret delves deep into unsolved mysteries of ancient Egyptian engineering marvels, and presents many new and intriguing surprises. Its strength of evidence inspired years of on-going research at Drexel University. Scientists at Drexel study Egyptian pyramid samples down to the nano level. In 2008, MIT responded by using the recovered lost pyramid technology described in these pages to build a model pyramid. Research at MIT continues.

Overview

The Great Pyramid Secret delves deep into unsolved mysteries of ancient Egyptian engineering marvels, and presents many new and intriguing surprises. Its strength of evidence inspired years of on-going research at Drexel University. Scientists at Drexel study Egyptian pyramid samples down to the nano level. In 2008, MIT responded by using the recovered lost pyramid technology described in these pages to build a model pyramid. Research at MIT continues. This book overturns long-held ideas about how the Great Pyramids were built. The recovered technology used to build the Great Pyramids holds exciting potential for future architecture -- on the scale of the pyramids and much larger. The book concludes with a means of using the technology to transform and revolutionize the construction of a functional, highly sophisticated, permanent Moon Base many years in advance of what has been thought possible.

Distinguished Professor Dr. Michel Barsoum, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Drexel University, and his team write in their first peer-reviewed paper on the topic that the sophistication of the recovered pyramid technology is "...simply astounding....We are also very grateful to Ms. M. Morris, who has been invaluable and unstintingly generous with her time and knowledge, and without which this work would not have been possible."

MIT Professor of Materials Dr. Linn W. Hobbs co-taught a class, with other MIT professors, on the special technology in 2008, and writes: "It's good that the students can see a real scientific controversy being addressed in productive ways."

Geophysicist Dr. Edward J. Zeller, a former long-term Director of the Radiation Physics Laboratory of the Space Technology Center, a focal point of Federal Agencies funding, including NASA-sponsored research, at the University of Kansas, reviewed an early draft of this book: "I read every page with great interest. It is at once tremendously compelling, entertaining, well written and also structured to hold one's attention...the research that your work captures in such a fascinating manner combines good science, a unique and revolutionary point of view, and academic material that you have simplified beautifully for the broad public."

Nature, the prestigious science journal, featured this body of research in the December 2006 issue.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
The Great Pyramid Secret is a choice read for those curious about the origins of the pryamids.
Allbooks Reviews
Amazing new theory....which is so simple and elegant that it is sure to become the common knowledge within a generation.
ForeWord Clarion Review
Methodical and organized, Morris presents her ideas to the academic community as well as to casual readers interested in pursuing Egyptian archaeological science for entertainment alone. She does not gloss over any aspect of her hypothesis that might be difficult to back with facts; instead, she supports her statements with even greater evidence. She does not come across as a scientist looking for shock value recognition. She believes the pyramids were built using a simple, but sophisticated, Late Stone Age technology. Then essential natural resources eventually ran out, and the process went into decline.
