Many have pondered the true purpose of the pyramids. Pharaoh’s tomb is the accepted belief, but not for all. Theories range from dimensional gate to prehistoric alien spaceport to immortality device. Proving these beliefs is near impossible.
Archaeology has brought to light that ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Mayans, Assyrians and Sumerians had an understanding of many of the technologies that we take for granted today.
One small piece of proof, the Baghdad battery, a clay pot with internal components much like today’s basic battery design.
If the ancient Egyptians had an understanding of electricity a reinterpretation of some of the Egyptian relief carvings may be in order. Some of these carvings and reliefs show servants carrying bulbs on handles. If these bulbs were lighting sources, they could very well have been electric in nature. Most of these reliefs show a slave or servant holding these items for an elite Egyptian. It can be speculated that electrical lighting and other electrical apparatus was only for the elite.
Some facts to consider
Ramses II’s rein coincided with the time of Moses. Bible history informs us that Moses left Egypt with the Ark of the Covenant. Less than a decade after the reign of Ramses II, Egyptian civilization collapsed. Was it because they lost a key component (the Ark of the Covenant) in the manufacture of their electric power.
Based on the measurements that the Hebrew bible gives us for the Ark of the Covenant, the arc’s outside dimensions are a perfect fit if placed inside the stone chest found in the Kings' chamber in the great pyramid. It is suggested that the Ark of the Covenant was or held a superconducting material.
The stone chest is located in the pyramids central alignment. The pyramids conductive configuration and design suggest the stone chest’s location is a likely site to focus or enhance negative ions.
Archaeologists and historians maintain that the Kings' chamber was the final resting place of the pharaoh, but evidence was removed by tomb raiders. Some believe there was never any artifact of that nature in the pyramid to begin with. Others suggest that that it was used as a tomb, but only after the pyramid became useless as a power generator.
The outer shell of the great pyramids was covered with white tufa limestone, a good electrical insulator. This limestone was installed so tightly that a razorblade can not be inserted between the blocks that still remain. Another mystery of ancient engineering.
The blocks inside the pyramid were cut from a different limestone quarry. These blocks contain crystal and small amounts of metal, and have electrically conductive properties. These blocks are impossibly heavy, also adding to the mystery of the pyramids; how were they moved? Research on the "Coral Castle" in Florida may shed some light on how these massive stones were transported and positioned.
The shafts inside the pyramid were lined with granite. This type of granite is a good electrical conductor, lightly radioactive, and is theorized to cause ionization of the air inside the shafts. This may have helped move negative ions to the top of the pyramid or was another key component in the mechanism.
The pyramids are built over limestone aquifers. The large volume of water that flows through these limestone aquifers causes an electrical charge of negative ions. The word coined for this is Physio-electricity. The lowest underground chambers of the pyramids were constructed directly above these aquifers.
A known scientific fact, when aquifers recede during the summer, the ground over the edges of the aquifers becomes electrically charged. Just for giggles, here is another one of earth's mysteries; this is where most of the crop circles appear.
No inscriptions have been found in the corridors of the pyramids. This may suggest a functional building. Seeing the corridors as conduits and how they connect to each other makes it seem more like a piece of machinery than hallways in a tomb.
It is suggested that a type of gold capstone in the shape of a pyramid was located at the pinnacle of the pyramids. Gold is known to be an excellent electrical conductor. This could have been the focal point of negative ions and possibly a channel for the ions to charge the ionosphere.
The pyramids today, in their dilapidated state, show a high level of electromagnetic properties. A thunderstorm shows the same level in electromagnetic readings as the pyramids. Rebuilding the pyramids to their original state would most likely increase the electromagnetic levels to an unsafe condition.
Nikolai Tesla was an unconventional inventor of his time. Some of his inventions included alternating current, the electric engine, radio and radar, which are common tools we use today. He is also known for experimenting with the ionization of the earth's ionosphere. His Wardenclyffe Tower facility was the tool he created for his ionization experiments. This facility was built over an aquifer on purpose, to utilize the aquifer as a power source.
Nikolai Tesla stated that his Wardenclyffe tower facility could provide wireless electrical power transmission. In 1917 the facility lost funding and his statement could not be proven. Did Tesla unwittingly reinvent what the pyramids builders already knew or was he copying this ancient technology?
How did the ancient Egyptians use electricity
If the great pyramids of Giza were functional buildings instead of Tombs then the possibility that these were power generators is the most probable theory. Creating such huge structures to transmit electricity into the ionosphere for the sole purpose of lighting seems illogical. But carbon dating and other resources reveal how old the pyramids really are. This suggests the pyramids were built long before the height of the ancient Egyptian civilization.
The theory that the pyramids are much older than originally thought may suggest that the Egyptians were not able to fully utilize and understand the potential power of the pyramids. The ancient Egyptians were in essence squatters. It may be that at one time the pyramids provided more power than needed. If the ancient Egyptians were only able to produce a limited amount of power from the pyramids, this may have caused this resource to be rationed.
Some more possibilities.
Here are some more reliefs to show that wireless electricity may have been used for multiple yet limited purposes.
An Egyptian relief carving may show some type of wireless antenna. It is theorized that this was used for wireless communication or power focusing equipment.
Another Egyptian relief carving shows some sort of textile facility. It is possible that these facilities were powered by electric equipment of some type. The Egyptian textiles of that time were almost as fine as what some of the high tech textile factories can produce today. This requires complex machinery.
Many gold artifacts from ancient Egypt were not solid gold but thinly gold plated. Based on our gold plating methods and processes used today, this could only have been accomplished through the use of electrical current.
Some relief carvings show a person inside (what could be interpreted as) some type of flying vehicle. Possibly powered by wireless energy. Nikolai Tesla also spoke of aircraft powered by his tower. This theory about ancient Egyptians having flying vehicles borders absurdity. No tangible proof has come to light.
If all these theories were true, it could be concluded that ancient Egypt was technically advanced in the use of electricity for that time and their culture. But this technology was not originally their creation. The pyramids were already there when their civilization developed. They figured out how to use the great pyramid of Giza as a power source with the help of the Ark of the Covenant. Because of its scarcity, this resource was rationed and only used for what was deemed important. Just like today’s elite are the few that have access to or can afford complex and expensive technology, for instance private jets, the ancient Egyptian elites were the few that had access to electric lighting, gold plating, fine textiles and possibly even flying machines.
Learning these tidbits of information only creates more questions than they may have answered. This begs the question who built these pyramids and how advanced were the builders of these pyramids? What was their civilization like? How did they cut and move those immense blocks with such precision? Did they have flying machines?
Documentaries and other information sources seem to leave out key information, mainly the aquifers. The connecting element between Nicolai Tesla’s Wardenclyffe tower facility and the pyramids of Giza is they were both built above aquifers. Tesla built his facility specifically at that location to use the aquifers as a power source. It is highly probably the pyramids location was for the same purpose. Until proven, this could be a mere coincidence.
We will continue to ask questions about the many worldwide mysteries, and most likely get an unsatisfying answer. But until we do, we will have plenty of fun pondering the possibilities.

I am blueprinting a smaller version of the pyramids and will be constructing very soon i have some materials and fully understand the physical and chemical properties taking place in the pyramids there is no reason that this shouldn't work and could benefit mankind itself. I also believe that if you are able to beam negative ions into the air that you can create radiant energy in the ionosphere which is the chemical bond between positive and negative ions that create energy from chasing around in the air so im working on a blueprint for a receiver as well hopefully this will work.

Knowledge has to come from somewhere. It cannot pop in from the aether. A knowledge of exactly how to work materials to gain working electricity takes a knowledge of science and materials that was highly unlikely for any primitive civilization to have. People, without help, cannot go from living in tents and huts to perfectly built massive structures with workmanship as advanced as we see here. Egyptians did have help, as did many others around the globe. A fossil/artifact record from a species that did not have some assistance would have been FAR slower in its progress from what we see in ours. The reason we do not notice more is that we have nothing to compare it to. Long story short: Egypt had help. That help was meant to be beneficial to the entire human race, NOT only the few rulers in Egypt. They did not share and disseminate their knowledge (and rulers did not become less brutal) and so help was cut off. Those helping were trying to jump start humanity to get going to develop better/quicker than they would have normally. People were not ready for this, so they reformulated their plan and did other things instead.

History proves we are capable of abusing any technology no matter how good the intentions of the inventor was. War is nuts spurred on by nuts. These nuts may believe the pyramids may be the key to having the upper hand, or maybe they are just insane.

Could they have used the power as a weapon? Maybe that's how they wiped themselves out.
Also if a weapon of such power was available now might that explain why NWO are creating wars in the middle east. They don't just want the oil and gold, they want the pyramids

Very interesting. This seems like it could be not only likely but the best answer to what the pyramids really are. No doubt this idea is debunked with archeological science, but only because they started with a different assumption. For me, this makes a lot of sense because of the correlation between the size of the tomb and the ark, the unusual shape of the buildings which in my mind do not match Egyptian artistry as is represented in the pictures above and the technological superiority needed to construct the pyramids. The fact that Tesla built his tower over an aquifer and that the pyramids are also built over one, seals the deal for me - this is a legitimate theory and it would be great if we could build a replica over an aquifer here.
