Is granite natural or man-made?
Granite is the most common building material at the pyramids of Bulgaria. Its consistency, quartz content, density and colour varies from site to site. The yellow granular granite of Rozovets is different from the Black granite of Pesnopoy, only 20 km away. And the blue-grey granite of Ostrets on the North side of the central Balkan mountain range is different again.
And there are different types of granite at the same site. In Sopot and Ostrets there is both blue-grey granite and red sandstone granite. The latter red sandstone is used to bulk the shape of the construction whilst the blue-grey granite is used for the outer layer such as the plateaus and corner stones.
At some sites like the Black Peak pyramid complex we find white river stone that probably covered the granite structure. It has no quartz content and emits a different sound. It seems to have encased the energy of the pyramid.
So, the type of granite depends on the location of the pyramid and the position of the stone.
The shape of the granite megaliths varies between at least 2 distinct epochs: the Lemurian and early-Atlantean.
We have a specific video on WHO built the pyramids. The link is below and in the top right hand corner.
The megaliths have a rounded shape that reminds us of hanging fruit or plants growing upwards towards the Sun. It tells us that the granite stones were moulded as opposed to chiselled into shape like the rectilinear blocks of the Great Pyramid of Giza. At the pyramids of Bulgaria the granite material was first soft and malleable before it hardened.
We provide a detailed analysis in the video on WHEN the pyramids were built.
The construction of the pyramids is planned. It emanates from an impulse, it adopts a technique and has an end purpose. And so, by listening to the location and position of the pyramids we understand that they are specific.
So too is the shape of the stones which is the result of an intentional creative process.
Therefore, how could we say that the granite that makes up the pyramids is the result of a natural occurrence? As if it had popped out of the ground, ready to use?
It would be akin to thinking that nowadays a skyscraper is built with iron and glass panels that are naturally produced. The specialised steel and aluminium structure just emanated out of the ground. The material used for the construction of a skyscraper is crucial to its reliability and longevity.
In the same way pyramids are still standing after millions of years because the materials were chosen and developed specifically for their properties to reliably fulfil the project. The longevity of the pyramids can only be explained by the quality of the materials used to build them.
Rudolf Steiner’s account of the Akasha Chronicle related in the series of lectures: Cosmic Memory, Prehistory of Earth and Man, helps us understand how the pyramid builders fashioned granite.
First, the conditions on Earth were very different from today. Air and water density were different.
For in the Lemurian and even in the Atlantean period, stones and metals were much softer than later. p.81
Second, the Lemurians and early-Atlanteans understood the properties of stones and minerals.
The Lemurian […] understood plants and animals in their inner action and life. He even understood the physical and chemical forces of lifeless objects in the same way. p.70
And third, they had the capacity to transform materials such as stone.
[…] in man the forces of nature changed into forces of the will. He himself could thereby execute what nature accomplishes. p.73
Rudolf Steiner gives us an insight into how the pyramid builders could fashion granite to suit their building needs.
Granite contains quartz. And quartz conducts energy. Granite was sandwiched with blocks of quartz to energise the pyramids so they could act as nodes to form a horizontal grid that energizes the surface of Earth and creates a vertical connection between Earth and the cosmos.
Quartz is the blood and granite is the muscle tissue. The human body, like Earth, is a microcosm of the greater Universe, the macrocosm, both materially and spiritually.
The location and position of the pyramids as well as the shape and especially the composition of the stones creates that cosmic connection with the macrocosm. Granite is the material that realises the link.
The pyramids are a metaphor for us, Mankind. We have our feet on the ground and our head in the sky with our hearts in the middle connecting both worlds. The connection is made possible by the blood and tissue that we are made from. These are the materials required to give Spirit a material form. Granite, quartz, tissue and blood all emanate from the same divine impulse.
