Acoustic Engineer shares his experiment performed in the Great Pyramid and finds the prime frequency of the chamber and the sarcophagus are almost identical! Almost every person who has experienced the acoustics of the Great Pyramid’s King’s Chamber has walked away with a feeling of awe, in some cases coupled with an impression that the chamber was intentional designed to be reverberate. For a relatively small chamber the reverberation is indeed extraordinary; one can literally hear one’s own breathing and this experience often accompanies feelings of deep reverence. This notion of design implies a prior knowledge of acoustics.
John Stuart Reid is an English acoustics engineer with 40 years experience. Between 1996 and 1997 he carried out a series of acoustics experiments in the Great Pyramid, including a hugely successful cymatics experiment in which ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs formed on a membrane stretched over the sarcophagus and sprinkled with sand.
