Pyramid power – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The idea that small models of pyramids can preserve food was developed in the 1930s by French hardware store owner[6] and pendulum dowsing author Antoine Bovis. Unverifiable[7][8] stories persist that Bovis stumbled across a paranormal force while standing inside the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. According to this legend, he saw a garbage can inside the chamber which had been piled with dead animals that had wandered into the structure. Bovis noticed that these small carcasses were not decaying, and inferred that the structure was somehow preserving them.[9]

This popular version is contradicted by an account discovered by Junior Skeptic magazine[10] in which Bovis denies visiting Egypt.[1] In this self-published French-language booklet[11] Bovis off-handedly ascribes the discovery of pyramid power to armchair reasoning and mystical experiments in Europe using a dowsing pendulum:

I have supposed that Egyptians were already very good dowsers and had oriented their pyramid by means of rod and pendulum. Being unable to go there to experiment and verify the radiations of the Keops Pyramid, I have built with cardboard some pyramids that you can see now, and I was astonished when, having built a regular pyramid and oriented it, I found the positive at the East, the negative at the West, and at the North and the South, dual-positive and dual-negative.[1]

Despite the legend, the idea that pyramids could preserve food was not a result of a chance discovery made while standing inside the Great Pyramid, but followed from Bovis’s previous convictions regarding dowsing:

A new supposition: since with the help of our positive 2000° magnetic plates we can mummify small animals, could the pyramid have the same property? I tried, and as you can observe with the small fish and the little piece of meat still hanging, I succeeded totally.[1]

Inspired by Bovis,[12] in 1949 a Czechoslovakian named Karel Drbal applied for a patent[2] on a “Pharaoh’s shaving device”: a model pyramid alleged to maintain the sharpness of razor blades. According to the patent, “The method of maintaining the razor blades and straight razor blades sharp by placing them in the magnetic field in such a way that the sharp edge lies in the direction of the magnetic lines.”[13] Drbal alleged that his device would focus “the earth’s magnetic field,” although he was unclear how this would work or whether it was the device’s shape or materials that exerted the effect.[14]

Drbal’s contention that razors could be sharpened (or have their sharpness maintained) by alignment with the points of the compass or the Earth’s magnetic field was probably not original to him. Junior Skeptic magazine discovered[15] exactly similar claims published decades earlier. In 1933, The Times of London carried letters claiming, “if I oriented my razor blades…N. and S. by the compass…they tend to last considerably longer”[16] and “The idea of keeping razor blades in a magnetic field is not quite new. About the year 1900 I found this out….”[17]

In 1968, paranormal authors Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder visited Czechoslovakia, where they happened across a cardboard pyramid manufactured commercially by Drbal.[18] They met with Drbal,[19] then dedicated a chapter of their popular 1970 book Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain to pyramid power. This book introduced to the English-speaking world both the concept of pyramid power and the apocryphal origin story about Antoine Bovis.

How the Pyramid Razor Sharpener Works.

Firstly, let’s determine that the Pyramid Razor Sharpener actually works at all.

Really I can write until I am blue in the face. If you don’t want to find out, I am not going to convince you. If you want to just get started, then get your pyramid razor sharpener kit by clicking here.

All I can say is that I have tried it and it W-O-R-K-S. Period.

Don’t ask me how because I don’t think anyone knows. The closest I can get is a rather lengthy description on this page. It describes what the effect really is, but it doesn’t say what does it.

This is a mystery that has been around since whoever built the great pyramids of Egypt died.

Not that the Egyptians built the pyramids as a razor sharpener, but it does that none the less.

They took the answer with them.

It seems like its a force akin to magnetism and must have something to do with this because the pyramid has to be lined up with the Earth’s magnetic field to work. More than that we don’t really know.

If you look on the net there are all sorts of weird things associated with the pyramids, but I don’t really go along with it at all.

This is a simple device, much like you would say a prism is a simple device and in fact, my reasoning behind it would be to sat it is a sort of prism in reverse.

What ever this energy is (and that’s the big question) the pyramid sides seem to focus it, a bit like a prism in reverse. The prism bends whit light according to the frequency of each color and we see a rainbow effect.

I think the pyramid takes a “Rainbow” of some other sort of energy and focuses it into a beam.

That beam, or whatever it is, has an effect. My razor blade is sharper than it was.

I have tried larger pyramids and preserved food in them. I put some fish under one for a week.

There was no smell and it was quire dry. It would have been edible, but for the fact that I hate fish. The cat didn’t mind.

I was more interested in using a pyramid as a razor sharpener. Get it here.

Really, it was not the savings I could make on blades, but the fact that the darn thing did this.

Its just made of cardboard, but by having the precise shape and dimensions of the Cheops Pyramid and being aligned with the magnetic field, my razor blade is sharpened!

Seems too crazy to be true, but I have done it.

I made a small pyramid razor sharpener and put it in my bathroom. I put an old twin blade cartridge that I had used until it was uncomfortable in the pyramid and left it for a week.

When I used it I found it shaved well again. Not the same as a new one, but very useable.

I replaced it each day and just kept using it.

You know what?  It lasted for over a year.

I’m not exactly sure how long it was because I had no idea it would last so long, so I didn’t record the date. I thought it might last a month tops, so I wasn’t worried about remembering when I started putting it in the pyramid razor sharpener.

I’m not kidding. It actually works. There’s only one way for you to be sure of it, isn’t there.

So I have made a downloadable file that you can print out on some card and cut out with scissors.

Its a pyramid razor sharpener kit, if you like. You just fold it up and put the razor in it.

The pyramid razor sharpener kit has instructions, not that you need them really. Its pretty simple.

The hardest part is lining up the pyramid razor sharpener  to North and South. You need a compass for that. You can make one, there’s instructions on the net.

So get your Pyramid Razor Sharpener  and see for yourself.

This video is good for making a compass too.
