Why Did The Egyptians Stop Building Pyramids? | Immortal Egypt | Timeline

The professor explores one of Saqqara's last pyramid complexes to illustrate how Ancient Egypt's `Pyramid Age' came to an end. A worsening climate combined with political upheaval, famine and economic difficulties to plunge the state into a dark era of civil war, with the land dividing into smaller city-states headed by ambitious small-town leaders. In an obscure tomb in Thebes, she uncovers the stories of warriors who fought in the bloody battle that would eventually lead to Egypt's reunification, and reveals how settlers known as the `Hyksos' tried to infiltrate the fledgling nation's government to seize the throne.

    Her story is very entertaining but the real reason no more pyramids were built is very simple, The pyramids were all built before the Zep Tepi, before the ice age and flood. The technology and capability to build the super structures was lost. Egypt went from light into darkness. You see it everywhere from construction to pottery. Better was older. Higher technology before Zep Tepi.

    42:07 Don't know why people like depicting Eqyptians as white people in the movies (Too many examples to choose from). From these sculptures/clay-works the hues used are depicting a brown to dark-skinned people. The sculptures of their gods were almost always black in color. This is not a race issue but a fact that is so far ignored. I think the only person who actually ever appreciated this fact in film was Michael Jackson in his music video "Do You Remember". Just as with the Israelites, semitic people (The Amoh people) in the bible were copper skinned, middle-eastern thus not lily white skinned nor were they African either. Due to the climatic conditions in the area, the adaptations that humans had developed over thousands of years there was so they could survive with the arid conditions of their location. I love history from all over the world and I hate when it is misrepresented or watered down to appeal to a specific audience.

    They were not the builders of the great pyramids, they just copied after them! They found the big ones already being built, probably tens of thousands of years ago. They were just their restorers! And they gave them a purpose, a use and who could be worthy of such a construction than the most powerful man-god in the state, the pharaoh; that's it. I suspect they were being built by other humanoid species, maybe still homosapines, but long time ago, when humanity was probabily again on a very high tehnological level, similar to ours today, but yet different and maybe, even looking a little "magic" compared to our perception and how we perceive things in 2021

    This woman is one of the well paid gatekeepers for the worldwide accepted historical narrative. It's rather telling for the money behind her, that each time another historical video on YT ends, one of her presentations is the most likely to follow. I have watched her stand besides one of the impressive granite boxes of Serepeum and talk about a mummified bull without any physical evidence of such a thing ever found. At the same time she totally ignores the blatant more primitive carvings on the outside of the box. Such blindness makes her a professional manipulator.

    Did anybody ever ask himself why those pyramids at Giza were built? Not to host the body of an unimportant pharaoh but to save knowledge. They were built by a high educated and skilled Previous Civilization that knew that they would vanish because of a recurring, thus predictable natural disaster. They made the Great Pyramid as a message from them to us. In the pyramid their history must have been recorded. And they may have left interesting knowledge for us. But everything is stolen thousands of years ago. Later pharaos, leading a less skilled civilization, tried to copy this concept because it would make a great burrial site for them. But soon they realized that they were no longer capable to make such a construction. That recurring disaster is caused by the ninth planet of our solar system, also known as Nibiru. That planet is known for thousands of years. We find abundant and convincing evidence for the crossing of this planet 9 and the cycle of civilizations that is the effect of the disasters. To learn more about the cycle of civilizations and its timeline, recurring floods and ancient high tech, read the e-book: Planet 9 = Nibiru. You can read it nicely on any computer, tablet or smartphone. Just search for: invisible nibiru 9
