pyramids
there's already one huge pyramid and needle not far off from here that creepy as shit as it is.

check out - 'belantis'

However, this one takes the fucking piss as the english are want to sometimes say.

check it out:

"a monument to us all" - i have seen the idea about for years but it just got backing from the govt. and it's all systems go. you think the germany might have a bit more humility perhaps than to site the world's largest pyramid all made from cement and human ashes. i dont think the people had a say, as it goes.

if anything this makes me not believe in 2012- anyhow, it is fucked up and i wonder how much the domain cost too.

it's just what they say it is. nothing wierder to it obviously. It's just a monument to us all.

i also point out this is in EAst germany - please compare the flag of the DDR/GDR to that of classical freemasonic emblematic geometry.

let me put it this way - when there is a pandemic burial space is limited and I bet that thing would get built oh so much quicker - it would make sense.

another ritual slaughter on it's way.
Quote:The World Pyramids
Even in a increasingly globalized world, it is hardly reasonable to assume, a significant number of e.g. Japanese, Americans, Russians etc. would desire burial in a far remote country, be it in Germany or anywhere else. To erect a massive structure with no actual graves in it, but just consisting of symbolic memorial stones, would be a reckless waste of resources in turn. That structure would rather become a monument for collective megalomania than a peaceful symbol for humankind.

Therefore, we will enable cities, religious bodies, cemetery operators, other organizations, and even individuals to set up their own local or regional Pyramid. All these Pyramids – or even a single tombstone in a private garden – will be closely integrated in the Great Pyramid network however: For any stone set anywhere a matching mirror stone will be set in the core Great Pyramid. Thus everybody to whom a stone had been dedicated, becomes part of this growing pixelwall of humanity which shall outlast millennia.

this part for instance - waffling on about the great pyramid and how it would be "wasteful" and just evince our "collective megalomania" to have "symbolic stones" so instead.... they'll have just symbolic stones. it's just pure nonsense.
Quote:this growing pixelwall of humanity which shall outlast millennia<sic>.

to me that sounds more akin megalomania.

RE: pyramids
Wrestlemania 26 had a pyramid theme going on in their latest presentation to the herd.

   

This one is directly over the ring front and centre. There was another made out of jumbotrons where the wrestlers came out.

There are no others, there is only us.

RE: pyramids
There's the Pyramid Arena in Memphis, TN:

[Image: 2141510-Pyramid-Memphis.jpg]

Quote:The Pyramid Arena is a 20,142-seat arena located in downtown Memphis at the banks of the Mississippi River. The facility was built in 1991 and was originally owned and operated jointly by the city of Memphis and Shelby County. Its unique structure plays on the city's namesake in Egypt, known for its ancient pyramids. It is 321 feet (98m, about 32 stories) tall and has base sides of 591 ft; it is the sixth largest pyramid in the world behind the Great Pyramid of Giza (456 ft), Khafre's Pyramid (448 ft), Luxor Hotel (348 ft), the Red Pyramid (341 ft) and the Bent Pyramid (332 ft), both in Dahshur. It is also slightly (about 16 feet) taller than the Statue of Liberty. A statue of Ramesses the Great stands in front of the pyramid.

The Pyramid Arena has not been regularly used as a sports venue since 2004. In April 2009, the Shelby County Commission voted to sell the county's 50 percent share of the building to the city of Memphis.

As far as the size is concerned, thy don't mention the Bosnian Pyramid, which is 2300 feet high.

This 3000ft hill in Tibet has got to be one of the worst offenders in still trying to keep up a pretense of being a natural landform. Truly disgusting Yuck
[Image: pyrcholula.jpg]

Located on the central plateau of Mexico, hidden to the naked eye, sits the world's largest ancient pyramid. The town where this wonder is located is Cholula, a small village just outside Puebla. Upon first glance, one sees only the charming colonial church of La Iglesia de los Remedios, built in the 16th century. Amazingly, however, this church sits atop the Great Pyramid of Tepanapa, oftentimes referred to as the Cholula Pyramid. Hidden by vegetation, the hill upon which the church was built, actually houses the great pyramid.

The history of the pyramid, coupled with the momentous events which followed, is full of drama and mystery. Approximately one hundred years before Christ, the pyramid's construction begun. Cholula, by this time, was already one of Mexico's largest cities, having been settled circa 1700 B.C. The pyramid's construction along with affiliated temples, was carried out by various groups over hundreds of years. Its early period coincided with the great city of Teotihuacan's development and power.


Inside Cholula Pyramid
An important ceremonial and political center of the pre-Columbian world, Cholula mirrored Teotihuacan's glory days of power. As well, its first subsequent demise coincided with that of Teotihuacan. But unlike the great city to the northwest, whose people mysteriously disappeared, some residual peoples remained in Cholula, not abandoning the city entirely. Expansion of the pyramid continued with the arrival of the Olmec-Xicallancas, who further added to the pyramid's scale.

The Toltec-Chichimecas occupied Cholula next, circa 1100 A.D. By that time the great pyramid was already largely submerged underneath tree and dirt. The Toltecs chose to focus their activity on building new temples which would surround the area of the great pyramid. The Toltecs also brought with them their intense devotion of Quetzalcoatl. Cholula subsequently became a mecca for pilgrims from all over Mexico, who flocked to the city to pay homage to the feathered serpent God.

Quetzalcoatl, already a long established deity of the Mesoamerican world, undoubtedly helped to inspire the pyramid's initial construction. However, with the arrival of the Toltecs, the cult of Quetzalcoatl truly flourished. Additionally, under the rule of the Toltecs, Cholula became a major center for trade and commerce. Having established strong ties with all other cities in the region, Cholula maintained its independence for a time from the ever expanding Aztec Empire.

However, the Aztecs eventually took control of Cholula. When Cortes arrived in 1519, the pyramid, stood silent, hidden under grass and stone. The city's population at this time equaled 100,000 inhabitants. Legend advises an ambush was planned by the Cholulans against the Spanish invaders under the direction of Montezuma. No longer swayed by Cortes whom he initially believed to be the reincarnation of Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec ruler made one last attempt to save his empire. Unfortunately, Cortes learned of the plan and what followed next was horrific: the slaughter of 6,000 Cholulan residents took place under the brutal command of Cortes.


Restored Stairway Cholula Pyramid
Temples were torn down and the ancient city of Cholula was destroyed. Cortes proclaimed that he would build a church in the area for each day of the year to match the number of temples destroyed. Drunk with power and with gold on his mind, Cortes failed to see the great pyramid.

Centuries elapsed before the pyramid was again discovered. In 1910, construction began on an insane asylum located at the base of the pyramid. Archaeologists once aware of the site began to survey and excavate. In the 1930's, tunnels were made in order to better study the pyramid. These tunnels, which amount to an amazing five miles worth of passageways, zigzag in subterranean fashion, creating a labyrinth, not for the timid. These tunnels afford the visitor the opportunity of observing first-hand the various levels of construction. Delineated layers of shell and stone are visible. A total of four stages of construction occurred, over hundreds of years. Although lit with lamps, the atmosphere is definitely haunting and you most assuredly want to exit before nightfall.

In addition to the tunnels, outside there are altars, stairways and platforms to explore. One can also see a portion of the pyramid which was reconstructed by archaeologists. Not only does the pyramid of Cholula represent the largest single structure in Mexico, it also bears the distinction of having the largest base of any pyramid in the world, exceeding the bases of the great pyramids in Egypt. The total acreage the pyramid occupies is 25 acres with a height reaching an impressive 181 feet. Each side of the structure's base is over 1300 feet in length.

When visiting the great pyramid of Cholula one is also afforded a magnificent view of the majestic snow-capped El Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes. The pyramid of Cholula is truly a wondrous pre-Columbian gem. The site holds the potential of even greater discoveries and with only a small portion yet excavated, who knows what marvelous secrets the great pyramid has yet to reveal.
