Pyramids

Triangle? Why?

The pyramids were built in the shape of a triangle to represent a mound. In the article, it states,” The mound is said to represent what the ancient Egyptians believed the Earth came from.” Also, the text states,” Others say the pyramids were built symbolizing the rays of the sun.” The ancient Egyptians thought the Earth was a mound, so they created the pyramids like mounds. The rays of the sun hit the pyramid at the point reflecting the rays over the pyramid. The Egyptians made the pyramids triangles for many reasons. http://www.egyptiandiamond.com/ancient-egyptian-pyramids.php

How was was it made?

The Egyptian pyramids we built with a square base and four smooth sided triangular sides, rising to a point. In the text it states,” Egyptians set the standards for what most people recognize as classic pyramid design : massive mountains with four smooth sides that are shaped like a triangle ending in a point.” The pyramids were built ending on a point which is a way of how they were formed. Also, the pyramids had smooth sides in the shape of a triangle, in which they were built like that. Pyramids were built very odd. http://news.psu.edu/story/141300/2008/03/24/research/probing-question-how-were-egyptian-pyramids-built

Why seven wonders of the ancient world?

They pyramids were one of the seven wonders in the ancient world because a theory said that they were a machiene of resurrection. in the text it states," It is agreed that the ancient Egyptians built them as burial monuments." Burial monuments are a massive sign of resurrection.Resurrection has a lot to do with burial monuments because they both deal with death. which makes this a perfect example. In conclusion, pyramids are one of the best seven wonders of the world. http://www.egyptiandiamond.com/ancient-egyptian-pyramids.php
