Digging for the truth

Egyptologists and archaeologists have been studying the Pyramids for centuries, yet
much of their history is still unkown.
What do we know for sure?

HISTORY

We know that construction began on the first Pyramid around 2600 BC, during the Fourth Dynasty, one of the 31 dynasties of Egyptian history. Part of Egypt's Old Kingdom, the Fourth Dynasty ruled Egypt from 2613 to 2494 BC, more than 2,500 years before Queen Cleopatra.

LOCATION

We know the Pyramids were built just outside the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis, capital of the Fourth Dynasty and home to the Pharaohs who built them. The city's close proximity to the Nile River was useful in the transport of building materials to the site of the Giza Necropolis.

PURPOSE

We know the Pyramids were built as tombs for the pharaohs (or kings) of ancient Egypt to facilitate their journey to the heavens. After death, a pharaoh was mummified and enclosed in a wood coffin and stone sarcophagus. He was buried with important items for the afterlife, ranging from household goods to precious valuables. Pharaohs built pyramids not only to house their bodies, but to leave a legacy of their power.

MATERIALS

We know the Pyramids were primarily built with limestone, but granite, mortar, basalt and mud were also used in their construction. The average block weighed 2.5 tons, and many came from up to 800 km (500 miles) away by barge. How the stones were lifted into place is still being debated. Approximately 5.5 million tons of limestone were used for the Great Pyramid, which is more than ten times the weight of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

LABOR

We know tens of thousands of people built on the Pyramids, although there is no way to know exactly how many. Until recently it was believed they were constructed with slave labor, but we now know that seasonal laborers worked, lived and were buried on site. One work gang inscribed their nickname on the inside of the Pyramid they built: 'The Drunkards of Menkaure.'

Get up close

Walk right up to the Pyramid of Khafre and imagine it covered with smooth, white stone. Over the years, the original casing stone has been pillaged, along with many artifacts from inside the tomb itself. Turn around 180-degrees to get a view of the Pyramid of Menkaure.

Spotting the Sphinx

With the body of a lion and the head of a man, the Great Sphinx sits at the eastern end of the complex. Measuring 73 meters long by 20 meters high (241 x 66 ft), it is one of the largest sculptures in the world. Take a closer look: his nose is missing (though historians can't confirm how he lost it).

Trong ba người đệ tử của mình, Thạch Thiên Sơn là người muốn truy cầu danh lợi quyền thế, luôn dòm ngó vị trí đại đệ tử trong nội môn. Đàm Đàm thì vẫn còn trẻ con, ngây thơ vô tri, chỉ có Sở Dương là ý thức được lần này mình phải đi chính là vì chuyện trọng đại, hơn nữa sẽ có nguy hiểm. Lời hắn vừa nói có hàm ý thật sâu xa.

Nhưng quan trọng nhất chính là một câu:" Thiên địa không dời, đá vẫn nằm trơ dòng nước chảy ", đã mơ hồ giúp hắn đột phá được bình cảnh tu luyện đã làm khó hắn bao năm qua...

Trong lòng Sở Dương cười thầm, sư phụ, xin đừng trách ta ngăn cản người, đây là vì ta muốn tốt cho người thôi. Kiếp trước, sau khi người đi ra ngoài lần này đã bị trọng thương gần chết mới miễn cưỡng đào thoát về được, điều này đã chỉ rõ là thực lực của người không đủ để làm cái chuyện kia đâu. Tốt nhất là người nên tiềm tu thêm một thời gian nữa thì tốt hơn a...

Một câu " Thiên địa không dời, đá vẫn nằm trơ dòng nước chảy " này chính là khẩu quyết cho cảnh giới Vũ Tông đột phá bình cảnh. Chỉ cần thực lực đạt tới Vũ Tông đỉnh cao thì sẽ phải đối diện với bình cảnh này. Chỉ cần tỉnh ngộ ra, vậy thì liền có thể đột phá.

Mà một câu " Thiên địa không dời, đá vẫn nằm trơ dòng nước chảy " này, bản thân nó cũng chính là một loại cảnh giới. Chỉ có đạt tới trình độ Vũ Tông thâm ảo thì mới có khả năng cảm nhận được sự kỳ diệu của nó!
