152 The Pyramid

Pyramids were considered the largest structures on earth for many years. It is shaped like a polygon with a wide base which narrows towards the top. The majority of the weight is located around the base. Among the first pyramids on earth is the Great Pyramid of Khufu, of Egypt, which is considered an architectural masterpiece, built entirely with limestone. It’s height from origin was 146.5m (488ft), which is now short by 9m (33ft) as a result of theft of the fine quality limestone covering.

The Great Pyramid is an epitome of knowledge and experience of other Pyramids. Khufu, son of Snefru second ruler of the fourth dynasty enslaved people to build his pyramid. However, this is a dispute in regards to who built the pyramid. Some people believe employees of Pharaoh were the actual builders. Surrounding the great pyramid were several small pyramids, a mortuary temple, a valley temple, five boat pits and many flat tombs for officials and members of the royal family. The pyramid has three chambers for burial. The first is underground, carved into bedrock. Above that was the queen’s chamber which is the second. Upper next was the third which was the king’s chamber, place at the center of the pyramid.

In the Ragtime, the pyramid was a reflection w

hat happens from top to bottom. It is a progressive increase from the base at the bottom to the heights at the top. In a society, some make it to the very top and others at the middle and some stay at the bottom. The Pyramid was a two man secret society, whose secrets were shared between Pierpont Morgan and Henry Ford. The pyramid was a clear structure that reflects how the power and very successful were at the top of affairs, putting others not as successful to work at the middle and bottom of the pyramid. Those at the top were responsible for decision making, acquisition of profit and assets management. Morgan and Ford were very powerful men with business insight and strategies. When Morgan had a meeting with Ford in his library, he invited Ford to join him make visit to the Great Pyramid an offer Ford turned down. Morgan had to make the visit without him.
