Ques: What Is A Pyramid?

Ans: That Is Where We Will Begin, By Defining The Word Pyramid Which According To The
American Heritage Dictionary Means:

Pyr-A-Mid (PiR's-MiD) N. 1. A. A Solid Figure With A Polygonal Base And Triangular
Faces That Meet At A Common Point. B. Something Shaped Like This Polyhedron. 2.A. A
Massive Monument Of Ancient Egypt Having A Rectangular Base And Four Triangular
Faces Culminating In A Single Apex, Built Over Or Around A Crypt Or Tomb. B. Any Of
Various Similar Constructions, Especially A Four-Sided Mayan Temple Having Stepped
Sides And A Flat Top Surmounted By Ceremonial Chambers. 3. The Transactions Involved
In Pyramiding Stock. 4. Anatomy. A Structure Or T^art Suggestive Of A Pyramid In Shape.
[Latin Pyramis, Pyramid-, From Greek Puramis, Probably From Egyptian Pimar.}

The Word Pyramid Comes From The Greek Pyramis (Plural Pyramides); Thought To Have Been
Derived From The Ancient Egyptian Per-Em-Us, A Term Used In A Mathematical Papyrus To
Denote The Vertical Height Of A Pyramid. In The Greek Language, The Word Pyra (repot)
Means "Fire" Or "In Darkness" Or "Illumination That Reveals Something Or Makes Things
Visible In Darkness". Midos (ntSoq) Means "Measures". The Greeks Had Derived These
Words From The Phoenician Word Purim-Middoh, Which Meant "Light-Measures."
Therefore, The Pyramids Themselves Mean Something That Constitute Measured Revelations Or
Revelations Through Measurements. The Name Pyramid As Given To These Great Structures In
Egypt Was Symbolic, Because The Word Is Really Greek And Not Egyptian As I Have Shown.
The Word Pyramid Comes From The Prefix Pyr Meaning "Fire" And A-Mid Meaning
"Surrounded By, In The Middle Of The Ancient Egyptian Term For Pyramid Is Mir.
