Pyramids and Slopes (Giza, Nubian)

Pyramids and Slopes (Giza, Nubian)

Pyramids and Slopes


Draw a square, then draw equally shaped triangles facing outward from each side. Cut it out, then fold the triangles upward to have them meet at the top.

This is how you build a pyramid out of cardboard. In the first example (above, left), each triangular side is an equilateral triangle (with all three sides of each of the four triangles having the same length). If you were to fold the tabs upward to meet at the top, you would have an equilateral pyramid. In the second example (above, right) with the four triangles elongated, the slope changes. Slope is the angle at which the sides ascend toward the apex top of a pyramid.

Special Slopes, Giza and Nubian

Special Slopes, Giza, and Nubian

Special Slopes

Once we understand the basics of pyramids and slopes, we can explore the special slopes present in the Giza and Nubian pyramids. Every pyramid has two slopes; a face slope, and an edge slope. When we speak of special pyramid slopes, we are speaking of the face slope. It is the slope of the face that is all-important, as the ratio of the face slope is connected to the Golden Ratio.

The Golden Ratio or Phi (Φ)


The Golden Ratio is a special relationship found throughout nature. It is special because it allows nature to multiply and expand while remaining true to itself. Both Giza and Nubian pyramids celebrate and embody this ratio, expressing an energetic reminder towards those same patterns of integrity and balance inherent in our own nature. When we build copper pyramids, we take care that they are reflective of this special ratio. When they are set up with wire at the base made taught, the slope should be correct to within 1/8 inch.

The Golden Ratio

Although the math of the Golden Ratio may be difficult for us to wrap our heads around, it is clearly observable in the image above that each subsequent square (moving outward in the spiral) is proportionately related to those previous. Hence, as Lundy puts it (below)... "the ratio of the lesser part to the greater part is the same as the ratio of the greater part to the whole."


"1:Φ, where Φ, or phi, can be either 0.618 or 1.618 (more exactly .61803399.. .). Importantly, Φ divides a line so that the ratio of the lesser part to the greater part is the same as the ratio of the greater part to the whole. No other proportion behaves so elegantly around unity. Φ appears predominantly in organic life."

—Miranda Lundy, Sacred Geometry 1998

The Golden Ratio and the Great Giza Pyramid

Golden Ratio and Great Giza Pyramid

Golden Ratio and Giza

Expressed in the Great Pyramid of Giza and resulting in the 51.83 face slope is this same ratio (below left). While a line drawn from the center of the square to the center of the left-most base line, equals 1, a line drawn from that same point to the apex equals 1.618. This proportion is Phi (the symbol is Φ).

The Golden Ratio and the Nubian Pyramids

Golden Ratio and Nubian Pyramids

Golden Ratio, Nubians

What represented 1 in the Giza slope (half the base) now represents the full length of the base, with Phi (Φ) again representing the slope of each face. One easy way to appreciate the Nubian shape is inside an image of a pentagram (image,above right). Phi (Φ) naturally occurs within this five-sided form. The shape below criss-crosses a Nubian's center point.

How the Golden Ratio Impacts Us

Impact of the Golden Ratio

Golden Ratio Effect

Pyramids modeled after the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Nubian Pyramids of Meroe have been recognized as having a positive impact on organic life. They have been used to extend the life of fruit, sharpen raxor blades, and so on. Active throughout organic life, this proportional value 1:1.618 (Φ) is likely what causes the pyramids built from this ratio to be so compelling. This offers some insight into why our experiences inside these copper pyramids tend to be so encouraging and uplifting– by both enhancing meditation (contact with source, nature) and encouraging self-healing (rebalancing, bodily integration, etc.).
