In his first book:
"CHEOPS-PYRAMIDE - gebaut mit den eigenen BARKEN
Lösung des Jahrtausendrätsels:
MASCHINEN des HERODOT + KRAFT des WASSERS"
H. Neubacher presents the thesis that the pyramids were built with the help of vessels. As spectacular as this statement seems at first, it is as easy to implement. The ancient architects actually supply the confirmation themselves:
The shipbuilders of the past have even left us the appropriate "liftingship". In a museum built especially for this purpose on the south side of the pyramid, it can still be admired today - the barge of Khufu, commonly known as the "Solar Barge".
Specific evidence from that time might be the 7 boat pits of Khufu, which still lie at the base of his pyramid. The pits No. 1 and No. 3 are so enormous, with a length of about 53 m, that they have been a mystery since their discovery in the 1920's to the Egyptologists. As is so often the case with us humans, if we can find no explanation for something, belief comes into the picture - so here: In 3 pits the ancient Egyptians used ships, however, the two 53-m-pits were vessels itself, because of their shape! With them, the Pharaoh had gone to the sun god Re to heaven after his death - So it is written by the wellknown Egyptologist G. Goyon.
Did Khufu require an armada of ships, so that his soul could ascend to the gods, according to the belief of those days?
"No", says H. Neubacher, "this theory is highly questionable. Rather, it was so likely that in 7 pits 7 matching vessels had floated." The author uses the example of the barge of Khufu in detail that these ships were built so solid and sturdy that they had well withstood the specific requirements as "lifting ships". But up to 14 cm(!) thick planks are proof of that. On the other hand, to travel as ships at sea because of their unusual design and the immense weight of construction materials (cedar, density greater than 1) they would have been completely inappropriate.
But why should the royal ship not have floated in the calm waters of the pit No. 3?
In a pit for a ship there belongs, of course, the suitable ship!
If one intends to transporte heavy blocks of stone vertically upwards, the only thing missing would be corresponding beams for levers.
SHIPS PIT, BARGE OF KHUFU, LEVER BEAMS, and WATER OF THE NILE make a very effective STONE-LIFTING MACHINE (look Image 3)!
A ship of 43.5 meter length, floating on the water surface of pit No. 3, which is 53 m long, struck into the rock, is now able to lift the famous 100 Monoliths - up to 60 tons weight.
Was it a mariner who had to arrive, to establish a link between ships pits and ships?
