With its shimmering white limestone mantle in place no edifice on Earth more deserved this title in the past.  With the knowledge of its absolute orientation, unparalleled structural integrity, and amazing precision of engineering it more than deserves that title today.  Unfortunately the original beauty of the Great Pyramid has been stripped from its surface and what remains testifies only to its structural grandeur. In its full glory it was truly 'The Jewel of the Nile'.  It was originally encased in a thick mantle of white highly polished limestone blocks.  Standing at the head of the Nile Delta it shined resplendently.  The surface blocks were so finely cut and naturally polished that this structure could be clearly seen as far as two hundred miles away.  Even in moonlight the surface gleamed with such brilliance that mariners could use this huge monument as a nocturnal navigational point.  One important aspect of its unusual mirror-like mantle was that it has concave sides. This unusual feature wasn't discovered until the advent of human flight.   This enhanced the reflective appearance of the 22 acres of highly polished surface. But these concave sides mirrored more than light.  The precise curvature built into the Great Pyramid replicates the exact curvature of the planet it sits on.  

     Even with a the very rough surface the Great Pyramid can easily be seen from space.  Traveler and popular author Abdul Latif recorded in the 12th century that the casing stones were inscribed with strange hieroglyphs that were unknown even in that age. He stated that the multitude of these inscriptions would require thousands of pages of space just to record.  William of Baldensal, a European visitor of the early fourteenth century, tells how the stones were covered with strange symbols arranged in careful rows.  Heroditus also wrote of these symbols.  The casing stones were dislodged for the first time in untold thousands of years by a major earthquake in the middle of the14th century. They were removed and used to rebuild the city of Cairo also leveled by the earthquake plus Cairo's mosques and palaces, including the mosque of Sultan Hasan. These stones were highly prized for their beauty, size and ages of durability and over time were almost completely stripped away leaving not only the beauty of this monument only to the imagination, but the valuable wealth of secrets contained in the inscriptions.

        None of the text was ever found. And it is those very markings that present one of the most baffling questions about the builder. Why would a pharaoh build a very big tomb for his royal journey into the after world, cover it with inscriptions in a language that know no one could interpret and not even bother to put one single symbol on the inside? One can hardly imagine the ancient efforts made to decipher those symbols. It's a given that there was no lack of curiosity about what was written on the largest building on Earth. And it makes no sense that its meaning was ever known. This is hardly something that could easily be forgotten and it is simply too big to just fade away. Something important was recorded here and it is hard to believe that it was Khufu's last will or final words to the world and why not in hieroglyphics.  These came into fashion about 800 years before it is alleged the Great Pyramid was built and were used well after that time.  There has been an on going search for a royal library supposedly in or somewhere around the Giza complex that has man's origin, the true history of the world and revelations about the pyramid's builder.  There seems to be no interest in the many thousands of symbols known to have been there or speculation that it may have been that 'royal library'.

        What does remain gives evidence as to why this giant has held the amazement of mankind for as long as time has been recorded.  One Greek historian named Diodorus Siculus who lived during the 1st century BC said, "the pyramids the immensity of the work and the skill of their construction strike those who see them with wonder and awe".  The casing stones stand alone as marvel of craftsmanship and unrivaled precision on an inconceivable scale.  The estimated number of these stones is between 110,000 and 150,000 though the exact number of 144,000 most often appears.  White limestone blocks similar to marble but superior in hardness and in durability against the elements were used.  They averaged 40 tons each before they were cut and polished.  They were about 8 feet thick and weighing about 15 tons after nearly perfect right angles were cut on six sides to a jeweler's accuracy of 1/100th of an inch.  The fact that they were cut this carefully on the unexposed sides shows clearly that this was no ordinary stone mason with primitive tools.  As a matter of fact this was no master mason with the most sophisticated equipment and technology available today.  It cannot be duplicated.  They didn't stop there.  They cut these huge blocks with such detail that they left an intentional gap of 2/100ths of an inch for a very unique adhesive. It is unique for many reasons such as it's water sealing ability and the highly unusual fact that it is still holding after thousands of years. The extreme thinness of application , 1/50 of an inch to hold multi-ton blocks placed at precarious angles, is also unusual.  But the adhesive itself is more than unusual, it is unworldly. Of the 65,000 substances known on Earth this composition of this 'super glue` is unidentifiable.  It defies scientific description or duplication.  This coupled with the fact that cementing the joints multiplies the difficulty of placement adds to the mountain of evidence against the conventional ideology.  Simple gypsum mortar is the standard adhesive present in Giza and elsewhere in the region as a masonry binder.  The fine white limestone casing blocks were cut in quarries at Tura, about 8 miles away on the other side of the Nile and from Masara with not even slightly chipped corners and no tool marks on any remaining blocks.
