The pyramids that we are most familiar with are more specifically called square pyramids. The base is square and the 4 remaining sides are triangles. A perfect pyramid or golden pyramid has a slope equal to phi (golden ratio) or 51° 50' on each side. The Egyptian pyramids have a slope that is very close to the golden ratio.

Ancient pyramids were the tombs of pharaohs. Some say that the ancient Egyptian received help from aliens or time travelers to help construct the pyramids. Who knows? However, modern science has proved that they are build to exact specifications. The north-south axis of the Great Pyramid of Giza is aligned to true North; it is off by about 2 1/2 minutes. Pretty accurate to be working with primitive tools, eh?

I plan on getting my pyramid corners from Precision Pyramids. There is a handy guide at this site to align your pyramid to true North to harness the magical powers. Once aligned properly each side not corner will face a cardinal direction. Hubs will be able to get the wooden dowels to complete it. I want to put it in my backyard. Won't that freak my neighbors out!

  1. Mind if I ask why you want one? I am curious as to what kind of experiences or things you may have noticed with pyramids. I am assuming you have used them before somehow to want to build one- correct me if I am wrong.

    1. I have not used them before but I'm excited to do so. I just feel an affinity towards pyramids.
