The Pyramid

The pyramid has fascinated man for thousands of years. We see this fascination in the number and variety of pyramids around the world.
On the Gizeh Plateau of Egypt, stands the pyramid that most interests the mind of man today. That is the pyramid Cheops. This interest is plainly seen in the vast amount of literature and study applied to this structure.

The pyramid is based in geometry, and geometry is one of the basic sciences. At this point a question arises, If we can study geometry in the quiet of our gardens, then why the vast expenditure in building the Pyramid of Cheops? At present it doesn’t do anything but just sit there.

We can look into this question by considering the four classes of people who built the pyramid as shown in T&D these are the Labor Class, the Trader Class, the Thinker Class, and the Knower Class. We can see Pharaoh as the intelligence behind this.

We must be mindful that each person has in him some aspect of all four types. For example the Labor Class has some aspects of the Trader, the Thinker, and the Knower.

Being involved in building the pyramid was of great advantage to the class of Laborers. Instead of working on creating the useless and changing hasary of the human world, he labored on a project which gave him the pride and honor of lasting workmanship within the peace and moral code of Pharaoh. All without the destructive influences that cause the immoralities of our day. To disregard the moral code of Pharaoh, and disrupt the work engendered gruesome punishments.

What is said of the advantages of the Labor Class can also be said of the Trader Class. He can engage in trade with the other classes in a moral and upright manor under the same moral injunctions of Pharaoh.

The Trader Class and the Labor Class work hand in hand, the same as the feeling and desire minds of the doer work for nature through the body mind.

The advantage for the Thinker Class is obvious. All enlighten rules of history have championed the Arts and Sciences just as Pharaoh did in the building of his pyramid. Engineering this pyramid would have been a great pleasure for the class of Thinkers, especially during this peaceful period.

This brings us to the class of Knowers. What advantage is there for this type of being in the building of the pyramid. The surface answer is, that he would live in a peaceful world whereby he can pursue the interests of his inner life. However, Pharoh could have enforced a peaceful land without the building of this structure. There should be something more for the class of Knowers.

Some years ago I read a piece [not by HWP] stating that behind the building of this pyramid was a group that wanted it built as a physical reminder for them in their future lives of the work that they were engaged in.

This squares perfectly with T&D. It includes the knowledge of reincarnation, doer learning and doer memory.

With our knowledge of T&D it is easy to understand this advantage to the Knower class of Thinker. The question that arises is, what advantage would there be to the Labor, Trader and Thinker Classes of the future? Seeing the pyramid now would not engender any doer memories similar to those of the class of Knowers, because these other three classes would not have had them to any degree. These three classes need more than just the pyramids presence.

At present day, what is needed is a pyramid builder of the mind, and we have this very builder in HWP. Percival’s writings when applied to the pyramid explains it all for those who choose to study. Percival’s mental pyramid as T&D explains the nature of being and its manifestations. T&D is the key that brings the knowledge of the pyramid as the four triads to us. In the following pages you can see the work of Percival applied to the numbers, names and words, geometry and symbols of the pyramid.

Even the missing Capstone has important implications. We can see that the pyramid is unfinished just as man’s world is unfinished. It tells us that man must complete the rebuilding of his physical world and himself. That he must complete the pyramid and regain perfection.

In the following pages, I have tried to show the application of Percival’s work to the Pyramid of Cheops. I hope you enjoy.
