Book Description

31 Oct 1998
Did a highly advanced civilization exist in prehistory? Is the Giza Pyramid a remnant of their technology? Then, what was the power source that fueled such a civilization? The technology of harmonic resonance, claims renowned master craftsman and engineer Christopher Dunn. In a brilliant piece of reverse engineering based on twenty years of research, Dunn reveals that the Great Pyramid of Giza was actually a large acoustical device! By its size and dimensions, this crystal edifice created a harmonic resonance with the Earth and converted Earth's vibrational energies to microwave radiation. The author shows how the pyramid's numerous chambers and passageways were positioned with the deliberate precision to maximize its acoustical qualities. This may be the same technology discovered by Nikola Tesla and the solution to our own clean energy needs.

Product Description

Amazon Review

Suspicion naturally arises when one reads a promo line on a back cover that says, "This is the most important book concerning the Great Pyramid written in the last 20 years". In this case, however, it may be fact. In writing The Giza Power Plant, mechanical engineer Christopher Dunn reverse-engineered the Great Pyramid at Giza to discover its use. His startling conclusions blow the heck out of traditional Eygptology's rather silly notions that it was built with copper tools by a society that lacked the wheel. While revisionist pyramid studies are rife with ridiculous theories that give the topic a bad name, The Giza Power Plant takes into account existing fact and artefact without having to rely on unprovable assertion to work. A must-read for truth seekers who aren't afraid to think outside the box and are willing to consider the idea that Western culture of the 21st century may not be the pinnacle of human evolution and achievement. --P Randall Cohan


"Chris Dunn ranks among the top researchers on this subject. His book is extremely well-researched and presented and, although very controversial in content and conclusions, will no doubt become a landmark and classic in the field of pyramid studies."

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last an Objective View Based on Science! 21 Jun 2011
This book makes bold claims. However, it backs each one up with hard scientific fact - something, that sadly, orthodox Egyptologists fail to do.

The evidence for an advanced civilization has always been here but unfortunately has been suppressed by elitists who wish to retain their rank and power by keeping the "masses" in the dark and subservient to their "truth". However, with the dawning of our latest technological age (and thanks to YouTube) the real truth of our past is becoming more easily accepted and the evidence for it is becoming more accessible to ordinary people like myself.

When I read an excellent book like this one and marvel at the sheer weight of evidence presented by Dunn I am left bewildered as to how this evidence is still not being reviewed. Dunn makes a very strong case for his theory and backs everything his says with facts not conjecture.

Dunn also rightly points out that archeologists are not experts in machining or engineering and can easily miss or misinterpret important evidence (in my opinion many times this is done deliberately. If I feel unwell and want advise on getting better I listen to a doctor before I listen to a mid-wife, if I want to know how a car engine works I will listen to a mechanic before I listen to a car salesman ...... if I want to know how the pyramids where made and what their purpose was I will listen to a machinist, builder and engineer before I listen to an archeologist.

If you are open minded and eager to find your own truth rather than thoughtlessly digesting the spoon-fed versions of history given to us by the mainstream communities then you will be fascinated by this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars left with ittle/no doubt 2 Aug 2009
The Giza Power Plant left me in awe, as the thought of non-linear development excites me, especially when we are dealing with something so long ago and on such a grand and precise scale that often surpasses our current levels (and I'm sure the research I have read so far is only the tip of the iceberg). It also leaves me in fear, as I have always thought that our society is going to destroy itself... and the fact that this advanced society who seemingly knew so much was wiped out and left such little trace, whether due to self-destruction or a cataclysmic event, leaves me with no doubt that the same will happen to us. (I hope to become a professional pessimist when I'm older!)

Dunn's writing style is straight-forward, and makes it very easy to understand the points he is making - and I hope that more evidence is discovered (and as soon as possible!) that further proves this theory.

I would find it very hard to believe that anyone who read this book would not be fully persuaded by the theory... I think Dunn is right in saying that it took someone with some engineering experience to think of some of the ideas he has come up with, but to understand and believe them takes merely common sense and a pre-GCSE level of design/engineering knowledge.

I think that this book is incredibly mind-opening, and that anyone who reads even just the first few chapters, interested in advanced machining or ancient Egypt or not, will benefit greatly. I plan on recommending this book to anyone with an open-minded inclination, and plan on passing my copy around to as many of my friends as I can...

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
(Edited 29/09/2012)

Whilst it is of course open to anyone to come up with a theory about the Great Pyramid and write a book about it, and indeed many have done so, as someone who has had a deep interest in ancient Egypt since early childhood I have always found the theories to be lacking. Generally it seems most theories don't explain everything that has so far been found inside the pyramid or they resort to orthodoxy one way or another. Christopher Dunn's theory on the other hand is the most complete and the most convincing that I have yet read, and the engineer in me tells me that he's right, or very nearly right.

The beauty of his theory is that not only does it explain everything found and recorded, from the noxious smell reported by early explorers to the salt encrustation on the walls of the so-called Queen's Chamber, without any single component it would fall apart. In other words, it demands the existence of everything which is currently known, and even allows the author to predict the nature of previously undiscovered features such as the apparent downward hole in the cavity behind Gantenbrink's Door.

5.0 out of 5 stars well that explains the how - anyone know who? 25 Jun 2011
I had to read this book after seeing a reference in The Greatest Lie Ever Told. There is so little research that is done into finding and establishing facts about the pyramids and too much guesswork and speculation that is put about as fact with no basis in research. Christopher Dunn writes as someone who has an enquiring, analytic mind and a practical engineering background. He is open to possibilities, but they have to make some sense, even if they do infer origins beyond our current knowledge, or even comprehension.

Dunn looks at what is there, uses his knowledge of science and engineering and says "What if?" The answers he supplies make sense within the parameters of the evidence he provides to support his thesis. They will never make sense to anyone who wants to take the "that can't be possible" view. Even the mathematics alone show that a few thousand primitive men with ropes and ramps weren't building anyone a tomb! If you want to know what the Giza pyramid complex is, read this book, it makes more sense than anything you've heard about the pyramids so far.
