The Pyramids and the Pentagon by Nick Redfern discusses the government’s intensive interest in mystical relics, ancient monuments, and lost civilizations. The Mount Ararat controversy, principles of levitation, anti-gravity, water on Mars, and the famous Martian embedded faces are presented at length with real
photographic images.

The author suggests that Noah’s Ark is a carved out UFO crash site. Others hypothesize that advanced aliens created a gigantic craft to survive huge floods. Genesis 8:4 does not say that the ark rested on “Mount Ararat,” but rather the “mountains of Ararat.” Various expeditions continue to examine both anecdotal and real evidence claimed to have been extracted from sites proximate to Mount Ararat.

Next, Nick Redfern discusses the potential origins of the Great Pyramid in excess of 450 feet high. The prevailing view is that the great stones were cut from quarries and hauled by a complex combination of ropes and levers before being put into place. The author presents alternative views; whereby, the ancient stones were moved from the quarries to their present position through a process of levitation and anti-gravity.

A basic acoustic levitator is comprised of a transducer, which is a vibrating surface which makes sound and a reflector. The transducer and reflector have concave surfaces to focus the sound. A sound wave travels away from the transducer and bounces off the reflector. The fundamental properties of this traveling, reflecting wave aid it in suspending objects in midair. The imponderable involves how Egyptian engineers could construct a rudimentary levitator with the power to lift a multi-ton rock from a quarry to the pyramid site five hundred miles away!

The more believable scenario involves the building of the pyramid near the current site. Huge stone panels will have been constructed and the principles of water flow were employed except that the water was replaced by sand. Tubules of sand held up great stone panels while still under construction. When the engineers were ready to complete the project, the tubules of sand were broken at the base and the sand flowed outward until the huge stones were set into place. This vision of building the great pyramids comports with more practical modes of moving great stone tonnage.

The book depicts “The Face of Mars,” which is a photograph showing a distinct outline of a human face on the planet surface with eyes, a nose, mouth, chin and headline. Might the Face on Mars actually be one of the few remaining remnants of an ancient Martian culture that vanished in a planet-wide asteroid
catastrophe? The author’s belief that an ancient Martian culture existed at one time is best resolved by excavations on the face of the planet Mars. The future expeditions would be looking for evidence of human life, such as, skulls, skeletons, pottery and utensils. In addition, there would be a continuing search for water and the existence of elemental plant life.

The author discusses the existence of root-like formations on Mars.  These ‘black spiders’ or root-like formations suggest rigorous macroscopic life according to the author. Water has been found underground and frozen. If all the water on Mars melted, there would be an ankle-deep ocean encompassing the entire planet! Nick Redfern explains this statement at length in the book.

The principles of Fluid Mechanics apply wherever water is on Mars.  In the case of liquids, molecules are close in proximity, though not as much as in solid molecules. The molecular arrangement is random. A liquid will disperse in response to impact. Within the realm of hydrostatics, Pascal’s principle explains hydrostatics; wherein, the external pressure applied on a fluid is transmitted uniformly throughout its entire body.

The Pyramids and the Pentagon discusses some very relevant facts with regard to topics like the Face of Mars. Only time and future expeditions can confirm the rationale provided by the author and the researchers cited in the book.

Based upon the statements made in this book about Martian water, future expeditions to Mars will be able to test whether or not elementary plant species exist on Mars with traces of prokaryotic cells.

About Dr Joseph S Maresca

I've taught approx. 34 sections of collegiate courses including computer applications, college algebra, collegiate statistics, law, accounting, finance and economics. The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria.
