Why Are the Largest Pyramids Across the Globe Kept in Secrecy?

Great Pyramids of Giza Egypt

While the splendor of the Great Pyramids of Giza never fails to captivate the human imagination, it may come as a revelation that even grander pyramidal structures exist on Earth. Contrary to popular belief, the world’s largest pyramid isn’t nestled in the arid lands of Egypt, but rather, it lies hidden in a different part of the world.

The account presented by James Gaussman remains just one of numerous narratives chronicling the existence of concealed pyramids spanning the global landscape. In various locations, enigmatic structures emerge with a sense of incongruity, boasting colossal subterranean chambers exhibiting anomalous properties and unexplained phenomena. The veil of secrecy surrounding these pyramid constructions beckons us to ponder: What compels the shrouding of these structures in mystery, and what enigmatic treasures might they safeguard within?

It was in 1945 that American aviator James Gaussman made a momentous discovery while airborne over the expanse of Central China. Amidst the sprawling terrain, he beheld a mammoth pyramid constructed from a luminous, white material. Gaussman even managed to capture a photograph of this extraordinary edifice, only for it to subsequently vanish into obscurity. Astonishingly, no official statements ever emerged concerning this captivating enigma.

Fast forward to 1960, when New Zealand aviator Bruce Cathy also directed his attention to the immense pyramids dispersed throughout the world. Further intrigue was stirred by the contents of notes left by his compatriot Fred Schroeder dating back to 1912. Schroeder, a merchant who traversed the expanses of China, bore witness to an exchange with a guru in Mongolia, who recounted the presence of China’s pyramids. Intrigued by esoteric matters, Schroeder set forth on a personal expedition to unveil these enigmatic structures.

Schroeder chronicled his journey thus: “We approached them from the East and saw that there were three giants in the northern group, and the rest of the pyramids successively decreased in size to the smallest in the south. They extended six or eight miles across the plain, towering over cultivated land and villages. They were under the noses of people and remained completely unknown to the Western world.”

This revelation unfolded near the ancient capital of Xian in Central China. The pinnacle of these pyramids reached a soaring height of 300 meters, eclipsing even the grandeur of Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, long celebrated as the world’s largest.

An intriguing aspect that set these pyramids apart was their meticulous alignment with the cardinal points, with each corner adorning a distinct hue: black, blue, red, and white. This chromatic symbolism intriguingly resonates with the Mayan tradition, which associates colors with cardinal directions. Bruce Cathy’s investigations unveiled a staggering total of 16 pyramids situated in proximity to Xi’an.

It wasn’t until 1966 that archaeologists were granted access to the pyramids. Regrettably, their findings remained concealed, a consequence of the tumultuous political landscape and shifts in power. This transitional phase led to the obliteration of ancient scrolls that could have shed light on the enigmatic constructors of these pyramids.

A seminal breakthrough came to light in 1974, with the unveiling of Emperor Qin Shi Huang’s famed terracotta army within one of these enigmatic structures. This revelation paved the way for the theory that the pyramids functioned as mausoleums for rulers from diverse dynasties.

Among these monumental constructions, the Pyramid of Qin Shi Huang stands as the sole accessible site, though exploration within remains forbidden. The surrounding areas yield an array of artifacts, including precious metal figurines, yet the pyramid’s interior remains a puzzle, a treasure trove yet to be unveiled. Furthermore, this is but a fraction of the thirty known pyramids scattered across the region.

Interestingly, skepticism persists regarding whether the pyramid of Qin Shi Huang truly serves as his tomb. In 2007, Chinese archaeologists unveiled the outcomes of a scan conducted within the ruler’s mausoleum, revealing a subterranean nine-tier pyramid hidden beneath layers of soil. Curiously, the composition of this subterranean structure’s material remained unspecified.

The majority of these pyramids evade the human gaze, with only satellite imagery divulging their existence. Researchers have attested to the proliferation of these enigmatic structures, adorning not only the vicinity of Xi’an but even infiltrating the cityscape itself. Evidently, valleys adorned with pyramids are scattered across the landscape, bearing witness to ancient constructions whose origins remain shrouded in obscurity.

Legends alone serve as testament to the architects of these pyramids, attributing their construction to the earliest descendants of celestial beings who traversed the skies astride metallic dragons. Such narratives parallel the accounts of pyramid builders across diverse corners of the globe.

The enigma surrounding the civilizations of antiquity continues to kindle the curiosity of contemporary scholars. It’s no coincidence that China takes center stage in these investigations, hosting some of the most significant historical exposés of our time. The People’s Republic of China, among other nations, remains fervently committed to sponsoring and conducting clandestine research endeavors delving into the enigma of bygone eras.

China, with its vastness and age, holds the keys to a trove of untold narratives, with each corner of this ancient land concealing a unique tale—a hidden chronicle of China’s rich history. The records remain, awaiting the discerning gaze capable of deciphering their enigmatic messages.
