Author Name: James Ernest Brown
A huge power house for creating electrified water, the Great Pyramid will never be looked at the same. James Brown first visited Egypt in 1978 with a team of seven researchers. He was compelled to gain first-hand evidence of the purpose of the pyramids. As a national award-winning general contractor for more than fifty years, Brown realized that Egyptian pyramids could not be tombs. Following the familiar principle in architecture that form follows function, he saw that it was impossible to enter the so-called burial chamber due to the angle and size of the passages.
These huge structures did not align with their supposed purpose, or with ancient Egyptian burial practices. After nearly four decades of research, James Brown has concluded that the Great Pyramid of Giza fits the profile of a type of closed cycle chemical laser and the Giza Plateau functioned as a massive industrial complex. This book will change how you think about ancient Egypt.
James Brown has worked as a commercial contractor and builder for five decades. His family-owned construction company has built 2,300 homes, commercial buildings, and multi-family dwellings, winning five national awards for energy efficiency in cold weather climates. He describes himself as a practical thinker, and believes that the logic and results of his research need to make practical sense. His perspectives on design and construction led him to question the simplistic assertion that pyramids were built as tombs. A well-known axiom in building is “form follows function.”
Brown’s journey began in 1977 with an epiphany regarding the nature of pyramids and a resulting relentless desire to comprehend the true purpose of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Being a professional builder and designer, he further developed a passion to decode the purposefully designed monuments of ancient Egypt. James Brown has traveled to Egypt multiple times since the 1970s, gathering evidence and data to support his alternative theories and ongoing research. He plans to build a scale model replica using pyramid geometry, modern materials, and updated methods, to demonstrate that the Great Pyramid’s main purpose was to electrify water.
