  • See a pyramid at the entrance of the via Ostiense in Rome is totally unexpected. Exiting the metro B, Piramide, we are faced, very white, recently restored! It is not a monument you would expect to see outside Egypt, to this, in my opinion, it's worth going and admire her silhouetted against the sky.

  • An important example of a pyramid as a burial place is in Rome. Caius Cestius, praetor, Tribune of the Plebs and septemviro man (one of the four most important religious colleges in Rome) in his will arranged that the heirs the build up like a pyramid Tomb, which was to be completed by 333 days, or risk losing the inheritance. The work was completed a few days before the deadline, as attested by the inscription on the East side of the pyramid. Caius cestius chose for his eternal rest a point not far from the banks of the Tiber, just like the Egyptians who had built the pyramids on the banks of the Nile in Egypt had become a 31 BC the Roman province and the Romans had begun to absorb the culture, as evidenced by the countless obelisks brought to Rome, the building of temples dedicated to ISIS and four pyramids in the capital. One of these was the tomb of Caius cestius, built between 18 and 12 BC, the only arrived today. Pope Alexander VII in 1663 ordered the opening of the Tomb-early walled according to the custom of Egypt-but found it empty, looted by thieves who had stolen the treasures. The measures of the Tomb are notable, 37 metres high, each side of the base measures 30 and is entirely covered with marble slabs. Inside there is only a single burial chamber. Sabina's body was laid here, it is unknown whether Egyptian mummified in the manner or within a crematory. The walls are white, but the vaulted ceiling is decorated with frescoes depicting the four nymphs and winged victories at the sides. The paintings had the task to reflect the meaning of the imposing structure: both inside and out is felt in fact trying to win time, handing the memory of man to eternity, celebrating the victory over death. But in what way? Perhaps using energy? In this case it was a tool that can collect and accumulate the energy naturally present in nature, and this "device" could be just the pyramid. The pyramids interact with energy thanks to their sharp tip, which behaves roughly like a lightning rod. When the water clouds you polarize, the increase of electric potential between two areas generates an electric discharge (lightning) that can be formed not only between the cloud and the ground, but also within the clouds. The charge becomes denser near areas where there are antennas, edges and ends. The lightning follows a path not random in the air, why is easily captured by the lightning rods, which are tasked with ground electricity. In 1750, Benjamin Franklin, thanks to numerous experiments, he realized that the tip gold laminated on top of an auction attracted more lightning. Also on the top of a pyramid works almost the same way: it tends to channel the energy in one place, even in good weather conditions. And it is no coincidence that the tips of the pyramids and the Egyptian obelisks were covered in gold. The electrical properties of these objects in fact were known empirical level in ancient times, which is why were the sacred buildings par excellence. An example attesting to knowledge of electricity by the ancients is the "Baghdad battery", a Persian artifact dating back to the Parthian dynasty, and similar for operation at our modern batteries. It is constructed from a clay container, in which is housed a copper foil rolled into which is inserted a bar of iron. Their surfaces are kept separated by an insulating cap of asphalt. Simply fill the container with an acidic solution of vinegar or lemon juice to trigger a chemical process that generates a potential difference between the two metals, measured in volts. There is another testimony that supports the argument that the electricity was known since ancient times: the "lamp of Dendera". This is a bas-relief, in an Egyptian Temple, which depicts a glass bulb containing a metallic filament capable of emitting light because it is linked to a power source via an electric cable. If its function was confirmed they could explain how the Egyptians were able to carve and paint hieroglyphics in completely dark places with great precision and without leaving traces of soot blackened walls or ash derived from torches or fires. Unfortunately, over the years this knowledge has been lost and the natural electrical phenomena, is no longer included, were attributed to sources now divine, supernatural magic now but always. In Egypt Pharaohs and Rome Caius Cestius had chosen the pyramid as a form of burial monuments, not only to celebrate their power, but also for something deeper. Science is not yet able to explain what happens after you die, though there are numerous testimonies of the separation of the soul from the body. Without going into specifics of near death experiences and enter into a complex field and still little explored, it is interesting to note that the testimonies of near death experiences, are extremely similar and consistent across all world cultures. This is at least a sign that there are levels higher than those registered today by science through brain activity, levels of consciousness that the ancient, and possibly even the modern could ascribe to the soul. I invite my curious readers to read texts about the experiments of professor Konstantin Korotkov who managed to photograph a body at the moment of death with a special machine, noting a strong energy movement in an apparently lifeless body. Ancient peoples believed that the spirit does not abandon immediately the body and remain there waiting to find its own way forward after the transition. The tombs and pyramids in particular, were then conceived as sepulchres, reserved for notable members, so that the energy of these environments could help them spirit to break away definitively from the body to reach eternal life and the fact that they were in punta indicated the direction to take. A soul disoriented that remains tied to the subject needs help to elevate themselves, like our ancestors knew well proving to know something that only now are we starting to consider. The real mystery is how they were aware. Once there is enough material to make work the grey cells.
