I consider it a great gift of life that Dwight and I have been awarded two hours of solitude inside the Great Pyramid. And not only solitude but complete darkness also, because of an unexpected power outage. We were practically locked alone inside the pitch-black pyramid!
That experience has changed me profoundly, just as it did one of the bravest men in the world—Napoleon—who appeared ashen pale and shaken after spending a night there alone. We don’t know what happened to Napoleon since he refused to talk about it for the rest of his life. But I know what happened to me: it helped me to overcome my fear of darkness and claustrophobia.
Some fears have to be faced straight on … and walked into. Which is what I did when I faced the chamber engulfed in darkness, walked to the sarcophagus, lay inside, and turned off my flashlight...
In the remote past, the King’s Chamber was used to facilitate the expansion of consciousness or as it is also called—initiation. It was designed for that purpose. Built to the proportions of Golden Section, it is also made entirely of monoliths of granite, which has a high content of quartz. Because of this, the King’s Chamber exudes a natural radioactivity, enhances sound, and gives off electrostatic charge, all of which has an effect on our consciousness.
When you walk into the chamber, you also walk down the rabbit hole. Anything can happen on the inner planes—but not if the room is crammed with people. For that reason, I’m deeply grateful for those two hours of solitude.
