«Коридоры испытаний» – дополнительные технические сооружения комплекса Великой пирамиды.

«…А на расстоянии около 100 м на восток от Великой пирамиды находятся так называемые «Коридоры испытаний».pTr6
Под этим условным названием подразумевается модель существенных частей Великой пирамиды длиной 22 м, а именно: области pTp9Нисходящего коридора, Восходящего коридора, Горизонтального коридора , Большой галереи и вертикальной шахты, которой нет в Великой пирамиде и, соответственно, находящейся не на своем месте.

Максимальная глубина шахт достигает 10 м; они выровнены точно по оси север-юг.
Нисходящий коридор шириной 1,05 м и высотой 1,20 м проходит более 21 м под углом 260 32′ вниз.
Точно под таким же углом поднимается Восходящий коридор, который переходит через 5,80 м в Большую галерею. Как «настоящая» Большая галерея она остается коридором с шириной в середине 1,05 м и имеет с двух сторон выступы шириной 47 см (с восточной стороны) и 50 см (с западной стороны).
Средняя высота этих выступов составляет 60 см.

В месте, в котором Восходящий коридор соединяется с Нисходящим, находится вертикальная шахта, квадратные стороны которой равны 72,7 сантиметрам.
Этой шахта не существует в Великой пирамиде, во всяком случае насколько ныне известна ее внутренняя структура (почти на этом месте все еще находятся камниpTp7 или камень «гранитной пробки»). Восходящий коридор испытаний имеет — как и Великой пирамиде — сужение в нижней части прохода, в котором зажаты камни блокировки.
Здесь есть небольшое отличие: нижняя часть Восходящего коридора сжата по высоте и ширине (чтобы удержать гранитную пробку) в то время, как в пирамиде уменьшена лишь ширина прохода.

По наблюдениям Петри, Коридоры испытаний прорезаны в скалах с большой тщательностью и внутри отполированы.
Среднее отклонение от абсолютно точных направлений только немного больше, чем в самой пирамиде.

Эти Коридоры испытаний по размерам проходов и углам наклона к горизонту почти идентичны коридорам в Великой пирамиде.
Существенное различие зависит в том, что Коридоры испытаний сокращены.
Даже вертикальная шахта идентична по своим размерам верхней части обслуживающей шахты в Великой пирамиде — только находится в другом месте.
Вокруг области северного входа скала обработана ступенями
, которые имеют вид, будто они были предназначены для кладки,pTp2 которой никогда не было найдено. Вся прилегающая область плато вокруг Коридоров испытаний тщательно выровнена.

Данные «коридоры испытаний», пожалуй, делают загадку Великой пирамиды еще более интригующей.
Связаны ли они были с ней?..
И если связаны, то как?..
Что это – проверка работоспособности технической схемы или дублирующая установка?..
Вопросов больше чем ответов.
Нужно между этими «коридорами испытаний» поискать подземные галереи с кабельными стволами – они обязательно должны быть, и подходить к подземным шахтам пирамиды.
Иначе просто нельзя – наземные и воздушные линии систем управления комплекса резко снижают его защищенность и помехоустойчивость.

The Trial Passages from ancient-wisdom.co.uk

The trial passages are an almost identical replica of the junction between the ascending and descending corridors.
Petrie said this of them:
30. ‘The trial passages (P1. iii b.) are a wholly different class of works to the preceding, being a model of the Great Pyramid passages, shortened in length, but of full size in width and height’… …’The vertical shaft here is only analogous in size, and not in position, to the well in the Pyramid gallery;Tr13 and it is the only feature which is not an exact copy of the Great Pyramid passages, as far as we know them. The resemblance in all other respects is striking, even around the beginning of the Queen’s Chamber passage, and at the contraction to hold the plug-blocks in the ascending passage of the Pyramid (see section 38). The upper part of the vertical shaft is filled with hardened stone chips; but on clearing the ground over it, I p 51 found the square mouth on the surface. The whole of these passages are very smoothly and truly cut, the mean differences in the dimensions being but little more than in the finely finished Pyramid masonry. The part similar to the gallery is the worst executed part ; and in no place are the corners worked quite sharp, generally being left with radius about .15. The N. end is cut in steps for fitting masonry on to it; and I was told that it was as recently as 1877 that the built part of it was broken away by Arabs, and it appeared to have been recently disturbed ; in Vyse’s section, however, the roof is of the present length, so the removal must have been from the floor. By theodolite observations the plane of the passage is straight and vertical within 5′ or less.

(The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh by W. M. Flinders Petrie)

And Zahi Hawass had this to say:

‘To the east of the Great Pyramid, Petrie found passages cut into the rock floor that are very similar to the passages inside the Great Pyramid. These he called «trial passages», thinking they were a trial run for making the actual pyramid passage. The trial passages are just north of the cause-way of Khufu beside the tomb of Hetepheres.

They lie 87.50 m. from the eastern base of Khufu’s pyramid and 43.50 m. north of the east-west axis. The passages are oriented north to south, the rock was cut carefully and well squared, and some parts were encased with mortar. The passages have a total length of 22 m. and a total vertical depth of 10 m. At the north end there is an opening in the bedrock when is cut in steps. This becomes a sloping passage 1.05 m. wide and 1.20 m. high, which continues at an angle of 260°3». From the north entrance of this passage, a second passage, of almost identical cross-sectional dimensions, begins. This second passage ascends southward at approximately the same angle as that by which the first passage descends. At 5.8 m. from its beginning, this second passage reaches the surface of the bedrock and widens into a corridor which is open to the sky. A square shaft, about 0.72 m. m width, was cut vertically from the surface of the bedrock to the point where the two passages meet.

About 6 m. west of the trial passages and parallel to them is a long and narrow trench considered the third trial passage. This runs parallel to the other passages, and is almost exactly equal in width to the vertical shaft in the trial passages. Its southern end is well-cut but its northern end was left rough. It measures 0.15 m. deep at the north end and 0.43 m, deep at the south end. This narrow trench is 0.71 m. wide and 7.35 m. long. Lehner believes that it has some connection with the trial passages.

The function of these trial passages has been debated by scholars since their discovery by Perring and Vyse, who believed that they were part of the substructure of the fourth queen’s pyramid which was left without a superstructure. They offer as evidence for this view the fact that these passages lie on the same north-south axis as Khufu’s queens’ pyramids designated by Reisner as GI-a, b, and c. They also note that the rock around the north entrance to the passages was levelled, indicating that there was a superstructure planned. Petrie, who examined and mapped these passages, noted the similarity of these passages to the passages inside the Great Pyramid.

He suggested that the trial passages functioned as a model for the Great Pyramid’s interior structure. Petrie found that «the trial passages» had the same height and width as the passages in the pyramids but were shorter in length. The only feature that differs in the two primary sets of passages is the vertical shaft, which he did not recognize as appearing in the pyramid.

According to Maragiogho and Rinaldi, the trial passages reproduce the following features of the Great Pyramid passages: the descending corridor, the ascending corridor, the northern end of the grand gallery with the lateral benches, and one middle horizontal corridor, which is only roughly outlined. A final point of evidence that these passages were models of the interior of the Great Pyramid for Maragioglio and Rinaldi is the fact that the rock was leveled on the sides of the north opening, which they interpret as an indication of the point where a passage built in masonry continued hewn in the rock’.

Of particular interest is the vertical shaft directly above the junction of the Descending and Ascending corridors.

Trial Passages

Roughly 87 metres East of the Great Pyramid there lies a set of passages, hewn into the desert rock of the Giza Plateau. When they were first examined by Vyse and Perring in the 1840s they were thought to be passages from an abandoned pyramid or tomb,pTp12 possibly even a fourth subsidiary pyramid of the Great Pyramid.  However, later on W.M. Flinders Petrie noticed that the passages seemed to be a very precise copy of the passages inside the Great Pyramid under the shadow of which they were cut.
He considered them to have been built before work on the Great Pyramid commenced, as an attempt to mock-up the layout of the internal passages in the edifice. Therefore they were named the Trial Passages.
Is this really their purpose?
Why have we not uncovered trial passages for any of the other 4thDynasty pyramids or for a pyramid of any Dynasty for that matter?
Egyptologists tell us that Khufu’s father Snefru built both of the giant pyramids at Dashur before Khufu started work on the Great Pyramid. Both the Red Pyramid and Bent Pyramid contain complex chambers and passages yet there are no trial passages related to these buildings.
Why have we also found no trial passages surrounding the Second and Third Pyramids at Giza?
What if the Trial Passages had some other purpose that has been overlooked?
Before we head down this route let’s study the Passages in a bit more detail.pTp4
Take a look at Figures 1 and 2 and you will see the comparison.
Figure 1 shows the passages inside the Great Pyramid whereas .
Mark Lehner also agrees with the striking similarity and comments; «As Petrie recognized, these passages clearly are a kind of foreshortened copy of the passages in the Great Pyramid».
Passage widths, heights and angles mirror the system of passages found inside the Great Pyramid.
We have a Descending passage, an Ascending passage, the start of the Grand Gallery and the beginning of the Queen’s Chamber passage.
To further add weight to the idea that we are dealing with a replica of the inside of the Great Pyramid, the Ascending passage of the Trial Passages — where it meets the Descending passage — contracts as it does in the Great Pyramid as if it were ready to accept plug-blocks.
No plug-blocks have been found in the trial passages yet the builders went to the trouble of adding this feature.
Furthermore, Flinders Petrie in his work The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh  adds that there is also a passage that corresponds to the top of the well shaft found in the Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid, however in this case the location is not in anyway identical topTp5 the position of this feature in the Great Pyramid.
We will return to look at this passage in more detail later on.
Leaving the matter of the well shaft to one side, the remaining passages bear such a close relationship to those in the Great Pyramid that Petrie concluded:
«The resemblance in all other respects is striking, even around the beginning of the Queen’s Chamber Passage, and at the contraction to hold the plug-blocks in the Ascending passage of the Pyramid…
The whole of these passages are very smoothly and truly cut, the mean differences in the dimensions being but little more than in the finely finished Pyramid masonry.»
From this we can ascertain that a great deal of effort was expended to duplicate the internal passages of the Great Pyramid out on the desert floor, a stones throw from the pyramid itself. См. далее…
