On the east side of the Great Pyramid is a large floor of black basalt stone. This is a perfectly smooth black pavement that would have represented immense prestige and incalculable wealth. The stone quarry is in Thebes, so it was very important to Upper Egyptian royalty. This floor was as smooth as polished ice and studded with small silica inclusions that resembled stars in the night sky. What was going on here? Why was there a black smooth basalt floor next to the Great Pyramid? No one can give me an answer. I figured it out, so it’s time to illuminate the world once again.
