The Great Pyramid;
Symbols and Hieroglyphs in the King's Chamber (cont.)
By Richard E. Ford

III. The coordinates of the celestial spheres in the King's Chamber

The celestial spheres of the Great Pyramid and their messages are encoded in the orientation, number and arrangement of the stones that form the ceiling and walls of the King's Chamber. All of these stones are of granite, most weighing several tons, cut and set with astonishing precision. The King's Chamber is rectangular in shape, with its longer axis running east-west and the shorter north-south. The ceiling has nine stones that span the east-west axis of the chamber. The walls have exactly 100 stones, set in five even courses or rows from floor to ceiling. The north face of the chamber has 27 stones, the south 36, the east 18, and the west 19. A closer examination of these numbers reveals that each wall, with the exception of the west wall, is a multiple of the number 9, indicating that it was intended to be a factor in the Chamber's design. However, even the number of blocks in the west wall could be considered to be a multiple of the number 9, if a unique stone set in the lowest course is omitted from the sum. This stone, located adjacent to the south wall, is fitted with a noticeably less-exacting standard than that of any of the others in the chamber, a feature that can only have been intended by the builders in order to draw attention to it for the purpose of omitting or including the stone in the count.
