Around four thousand six hundred years ago, the Fourth Dynasty pharaoh Sneferu built three pyramids. The first, at Meidum, was a stepped structure, just like that of his predecessor Djoser (who had been guided by the high Sun-priest Imhotep). Sneferu was guided to coat this one with an outer layer of limestone to give it flat sides. He then went on to have the Bent Pyramid, then the Red Pyramid (coated with limestone of a reddish hue) constructed - these two are remarkably well-preserved today in their structure and coatings.
Contrary to the opinion of some Egyptologists, the Bent Pyramid was not a mistake or accident. Dr. Vassil Dobrev has recently solved the true purpose of these masterpieces of stone architecture. It has often been said that the pyramids were meant to transport the soul or Ba of the pharaoh into the sky after death. But Seferu never meant to abandon Earth - he needed to repeatedly return here. Dr Dobrev reveals that the bent Pyramid was designed to project his Ba to the Sun, and the role of the Red Pyramid, whose very style, shape and colour is a portrayal of the spreading rays of the Sun, was to receive him upon his return, thus enabling a perpetual cycle of passing, resurrection and revival.
