Magic Temples and Shrines:
In the construction of pyramids it has been determined that they contain mathematical wisdom, highly accurate maps and tables. Within them are found treasure houses, secret chambers, inner sanctums of granite, hidden death traps, secret passages and locks for doors via leverage. Graves with priceless artifacts of culture, wealth, religious beliefs and icons have been uncovered. Red granite sarcophagus are covered with runes of lore, prophecy, warning and curses.

Occult and mystical lights appear when rituals are conducted there (Mystic illuminations). Upon entering one might encounter a blizzard of bats and foul air, granite plugs, and narrow wells designed as escape routes. They have ventilation systems and the bases of the pyramids are related to geographical as well as measurement of the Earth's circumference mathematically equated via advanced geometry.

It is said the voice of Sphinx speaks to certain people in dreams and if they do as bid they are told of a reward that is prophecy for them and comes true.

Secret chambers remain hidden, roughhewn stones amid polished limestone. Vertically stacked stones vs staggered stones of other areas. Precision construction. Near perfect alignment to compass points. Designed with mathematical and astronomical facets. Harbor mystical powers. Symbol of universal measurement of length and time. Gigantic sundial and astronomical observatory. Shape has physical effects on living and inanimate objects (helps plants grow and keeps food longer). Sun worship. Stones highly polished limestone fitted with painstaking precision. Stairway to stars.

As a ritual temple they are designed to let elect people mystically transform into Gods. One would lay for 3 days and nights while the soul entered the spiritual realm and immortality. Others are for grain storehouses. Repositories of ancient knowledge, prophecy and guide to the stars. Proof of the Divine Hand's presence in the world. Shows mathematical distance from center of earth to the poles.

It is said the architects were guided by God to build them via extra-ordinary knowledge beyond the level at that time.

To drive away the evil spirits, ghosts and witches that also roamed about, they guilt huge bonfires on mountaintops and hillsides. Special powers radiated forth from the spirits on Halloween and the people called upon them that holiday.
