As discussed in Chapters 8 and 9, pyramids can be used to maintain the sharpness of both single- and double-edged razor blades, household knives and scissors. There are even reports of the usage of pyramids to prolong the amount of time an electric razor head will remain sharp.
Extremely dull razor blades and other cutting implements can actually be sharpened by housing them in pyramids, but this process is a fairly lengthy one the Instrument in question must remain unmoved inside a pyramid for at least four months.
To conduct your own experiment to determine whether or not the pyramid actually does prolong the sharpness of a razor blade you will need only a pyramid, a blade and a considerable amount of patience.
Place a brand new razor blade inside your pyramid. For optimum results, place it flat on the Vs level and with its cutting edges aligned facing east- west. Allow the blade to remain in the pyramid for at least one full week. It may then be used for periodic or daily shaving. As long as the blade is returned to the pyramid after each shave, and positioned exactly as it was during the seven-day conditioning period, it should retain its sharpness. For the first forty to sixty days of use, the subjective quality of the shaves will probably fluctuate a great deal. However, after this initial period, the quality will stabilize and will normally remain constant for at least two hundred shaves more (see Fig. 29).
Since 1970, a number of new ways to utilize the powers of the pyramid have developed in such diverse fields as horticulture, electronics and biochemistry. Some of the ideas which have evolved are simple, practical and easily effected for daily use.
Horticulturists have found that seeds which were placed inside a pyramid before planting germinated more quickly and produced a stronger, healthier plant in a shorter period of time than did seeds which had not been processed in a pyramid.
It is also interesting to note that any horticulturist whose field of experience is in the growing of grapevines will inform you that to insure a good, tasty crop of grapes, it is necessary to have the vines growing or climbing in a north-south direction.
Large pyramids are increasingly being used as hot houses and sanitariums to maintain the life of plants during their dormant cycles and to rehabilitate plants which no longer seem to be thriving.
To perform your own horticultural experiment, simply buy a package of seeds. Place half of the seeds inside your pyramid in rows along the north- south axis and leave them there for at least two weeks. Then remove the seeds and plant them. As a control, plant the rest of the seeds under identical conditions; carefully identify each group of seeds. By observing the growth rate of each batch of seeds, you will be able to draw your own conclusions as to the efficacy of the pyramid in aiding seed germination.
Two particularly practical uses for pyramids concern ordinary house plants. One way in which your plants can be benefited by the pyramid is to use it as a storage container for the water you use in watering your window-sill garden. Place ordinary tap water inside a pyramid for at least a week before you use it to water your plants. You will probably find that it will stimulate plant growth, acting much like a fertilizer. Many reports of rapid increase in floral propagation, and our own experimentation, suggest that water housed within a pyramid actually undergoes a change, as yet undetectable in chemical analysis, which not only aids plant growth, but in fact helps seeds to germinate more quickly than they would when watered naturally, and actually produces a healthier seedling.
The other way in which your pyramid can help your plants is by using it to root cuttings. It appears that cuttings placed in pyramids to root do so much more quickly than under ordinary conditions. Also, the rate of loss of pyramid-rooted cuttings is less than that of cuttings rooted in water or soil outside the pyramid. To test the effectiveness of this method of rooting, simply place a cutting in a container of water. Then place the container inside the pyramid. Within a shorter period of time than it would normally take, the cutting will have a substantial root system. You can then remove it from the pyramid and pot it immediately. Watering it with pyramid- stored water should further insure the healthy growth of your cutting.
In the field of electronics, technologists have discovered that when they tuned an AM radio in between stations and fed the antenna wire an inch or two through the apex of a model pyramid from the outside, and then suspended the pyramid over another pyramid, unusual static issued from the radio’s speaker. Moving the suspended pyramid away from the base pyramid resulted in reduction of the volume of the static to the point where it could no longer be heard.
Discovery of the fact that electronic signals issue from pyramids has led some enterprising persons to conduct experiments which have produced surprisingly practical results. Using an aluminum pyramid, they have created an antenna for TV and FM radio reception. This is accomplished by attaching each wire from the TV or radio antenna to an aluminum pyramid with a screw and hanging this complex above the television or radio.
In order to test for energy given off through the apex of a pyramid, you can use a pendulum or a dowsing rod.
You can construct a pendulum from a small but heavy object, such as a ring or a coin, suspended from a thread or thin string about ten inches in length. The object you choose must be fairly heavy and as small as possible. A metal ball bearing is best; a door key is too large to be acceptable. Holding the pendulum in your hand, suspend it about one inch above the apex and about a foot to the left or right of the pyramid. Begin to move the pendulum slowly towards the pyramid. As it approaches the side or corner of the pyramid, and is about six inches from the apex, the pendulum will begin to be inexplicably prevented from reaching the apex, even though your hand is directly above or slightly past the apex. As a further test, suspend the weight about V4 of an inch directly above the apex of the pyramid. Try to keep it motionless. You will probably find that this is practically impossible; in all likelihood the pendulum will swing away or move in a circular path around the apex.
To construct a dowsing rod, we suggest that you use a pair of metal coat hangers and straighten them out. Or use two metal rods, at least % 0 of an inch in diameter and about 3 feet long. About 7 inches from one end of each rod, make a 90 degree bend. Each rod should now have a new length of about 29 inches and a 7-inch handle (see Fig. 30). To operate these rods, grasp the handles gently in your hands do not squeeze them, since this would prevent the rods from swinging. Place your hands so that the rods are parallel to each other and pointing away from you.
With your arms extended at a comfortable level, walk towards the pyramid so that the rods will bracket the pyramid above the apex. As the tip of each rod approaches the apex, the rods will either begin to cross over each other, forming an “X,” or they will swing away from each other, one pointing to the right and the other pointing to the left.
The extent to which energy is radiated above the model pyramid can be determined by simply suspending the pendulum or the rods at increasingly greater heights above the apex until no effect is noticed.
The diameter of the energy vortex, or cone, can be determined by suspending either the pendulum or the rods above and slightly to the side of the apex of the pyramid. Note at what height and distance away from the apex your pendulum, or rods, first begin to react to the energy vortex. Now raise the instrument an inch and move it back from the pyramid to your original starting point. You should find that the higher above the apex the instrument is suspended, the greater the diameter of the area over which the effect of the energy vortex extends.
Although biochemical researchers have only recently begun to experiment with pyramids, some tentative findings have been reported (as discussed in the beginning of this chapter). Cultures, enzymes and bacteria seem to behave differently, based on their specific characteristics, inside pyramids than they do outside them. Researchers have also found, as have hundreds of lay experimenters, that mold and mildew does not seem to flourish very well inside a pyramidal environment.
It seems abvious that pyramids do contain some as yet unexplainable powers. Why then have many researchers, both amateur and professional, gotten negative results from their pyramid experiments? One reason is that many of these experiments have been conducted haphazardly, with improper materials, without proper controls and under less than optimum conditions. The effects of the pyramid may not be earthshaking, but they do seem to be of benefit to humankind in many small but useful ways. In order to best cull from the pyramid all of its benefices, the researcher must approach pyramid experiments with all the respect for scientific methods he or she would accord any conventional area of research.
