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

VI. The fifth celestial sphere and its figures

In considering the coordinates from the Chamber's 5th course, their locations on the celestial sphere when projected downwards onto a flat surface, create the following:

Figure 7

The symbols created by this plot are pregnant with meaning, depicting as they do images that are almost universally understood to represent the earth and creation. In ancient Egypt, the half circle picture is the hieroglyphic letter t which symbolizes the earth[3], and it may be of further significance in this context that the letter t was used as a suffix to denote the feminine in hieroglyphic writing.

VII. Further words derived from the hieroglyphic letters and symbols of the King's Chamber

The rectangle picture and half circle picture from the third and fifth sphere figures, respectively, are the hieroglyphic letters p and t, which when combined is picture, pt, the ancient Egyptian word for sky. (The sky determinative picture is added for purposes of conformity with convention.)

If the circle within a circle from picture the first sphere figures, which is a glyph symbolizing the eye of re orpicture,ir, is combined with the letters p and t the word picture, ptr, an ancient Egyptian word meaning to observe or view is formed.

If the twist picture or letter picture from the first sphere figures is added to the letters p and t from the third and fifth spheres, respectively, the ancient Egyptian word picture, ptpicture is formed, which is the name of Ptah, the ancient Egyptian god who was believed to be the divine architect of the universe. It is interesting that the name, Ptah, incorporates the symbols for heaven and earth, and arguably the symbol for eternity as well, in its orthography. If this was done by design, and it appears that it was, then the name of Ptah has far broader ramifications than have previously been recognized. Furthermore, finding his name in the Great Pyramid has stunning ramifications that are far beyond the scope of this paper to address.

VIII. Other symbols and hieroglyphs present in the structure of the Great Pyramid

From the following figure, which represents the terrestrial globe―another aspect of the medieval Arab legends―several additional hieroglyphs can be derived from the Great Pyramid.

These include picture ,pictured, the djed column that is the symbol for, Osiris, the Egyptian god of resurrection, although the use of the name of the god in this context may be an anachronism. This symbol is widely understood to mean resurrection. And the hieroglyph

picture the ancient Egyptian letter picture, which is derived from the two lines shown in the figure's depiction of the northern hemisphere and their two implied counterparts from the southern hemisphere If the letter picture is combined with the letters p and t from the third and fifth spheres, the word picturept is produced, which in ancient Egyptian was the word for death.
