John Cadman - WA - Engineer and developer of the hydraulic pulse generator theory of the Great Pyramid of Giza.  John has produced his theory by building large scale working models of the lower extremities of the Great Pyramid showing how it acts as a pulse generator, hydrogen generator and water pump.

One of my mother’s favorite stories is how her five-year-old son wired the attic for lights. He wanted to see countless mechanical and electrical projects which covered the floor better.

I grew up with a fascination of machinery and technology. In my teen years I was fascinated by the technological wizardry of the motocross scene. Fascination hardly touches on my love of the sport, the machines and the intensity. In those days motorcycle technology was changing at a furious pace, and I was busy keeping up with all the latest developments. The factory prototypes were hitting the tracks costing upwards of $100,000. Working at a machine shop after school provided me with access to various lathes, mills and welding equipment. I was a 125 cc freak, a motor size limitation which required maximizing the output by any and every means available; from flow porting the cylinder to modifying the frame and suspension.

Turning 18, I bought the biggest, baddest motocrosser built to date, the Yamaha YZ 465. The bike had just captured a win against the world’s best in near stock form. The motor was very unlike the 125 cc motors, though. It was detuned. No fancy hi-tech gadgetry. It also had oodles of horsepower all over the rpm range. It was user friendly and yet could be absolutely terrifying depending upon how quickly the throttle was turned.

Where am I going with all of this?

That was truly a great motor that survived for at least ten times longer than the hi-tech little motors. It was my introduction to low tech "heavy metal". I hold this over till this day with low-tech diesel vehicles. No computer equipment on board, thank you.

The early 80’s saw the advent of personal computers, and I became sucked up into the new scene. I started writing small programs in "basic" language. This eventually ended up with the creation of a graphics manipulation program written in machine code.

Machine code reads, writes, and manipulates 1’s and 0’s . . . . pure logic with no room for error. Raw code creations formed as I was trying to drift off to sleep. The numbers become a visual mental entity only to be captured by writing on paper. This flooding of the brain with flying binary numbers changes synaptic nerve patterns forever.

It was an obsession. Late nights and way too much caffeine. The program, "Characters Unlimited", came to life. It and the manual were sent off to the software publishers where it was accepted! A firm in San Diego was going to market it. Then the software market for the particular machine went soft. Both went down in blaze of glory. I never wrote another program.

Off on another tangent? Maybe.

Obsession to the point of completion. Creating with pure logic. Seeing the vulnerability of hardware and software. Loss of faith in the fragile high tech machinery.

While attending the university in my hometown, I started working in the Alaskan fishing industry during the summer months. The hours were long, but money was good for school. I was three years on my way towards a mechanical engineering degree when my mentor, Billy Adamson, wanted me to stay on in Alaska. "Why bust your butt in school and be poor when you can come with me and be an engineer and get paid well?" It seemed pretty reasonable at the time.

The next few years were spent as an assistant engineer designing and fabricating seafood processing lines and of course, repairing every conceivable piece of onboard equipment. The sea inspired conceptual repair creativity! Boats have literally miles of pipes and hundreds of valves for fuel transfers, water transfers and the like. Billy Adamson hammered the concept of "tracing the pipes" into my head. Follow the liquid flow through the pipes until it encountered valves and crossovers. This was later to play a major factor in the Giza pipe tracking.

Our hero then finds himself as chief engineer of a Bering sea king crab boat. Crabbing is the most dangerous profession in the world. We worked 20 plus hours per day. Crew members were smashed by 1000 pound crab pots or pulled overboard to a quick frozen death. Sleep deprivation to the point of delirium, frozen fingers numbed for months afterward, carpal tunnel, pure misery. But the money was great.

The Bering sea - home of wind, waves and ice; where 30-foot seas are common and 50-foot seas happen with alarming regularity. Ice laden boats roll over every year. Things were on par with almost every bit of the movie "The Perfect Storm".

Boats in Alaska are worked to death. There is at least two of every motor, pump, electronic piece . . . It all fails. Simple is good. Build everything indestructible. And once again, the old school of heavy metal. The builders of the Great Pyramid were from the same school.

After a number of years of crabbing and with all my fingers still intact, circumstances caused a change of career. The following years saw ups and downs. I even built and ran a restaurant with family members! That was an eye opener. The term "married to the business" comes to mind.

In early 1999 my wife and I moved onto our family’s unimproved property. Unimproved means no water, no power. Alternate energy had to be developed. In my search for solutions, I came across Richard Noone’s book, "5/5/2000", in a small bookstore, which had covered material regarding the Great Pyramid. I also discovered a little known book by Edward Kunkel, "The Pharaoh’s Pump". Kunkel had written of how the Great Pyramid was an amazingly efficient water pump which didn’t require electricity.

In June of 1999 I decided to build the lower half of the pump known as "the construction pump". I scoured the internet, libraries and book stores for every bit of information about the subterranean chamber of the Great Pyramid. Very little accurate information exists about this room, folks.

By August of 1999, I had a prototype as described by Kunkel. In front of family and friends it was tried. It did not work; in fact, that prototype never did run. I must credit Kunkel with the idea of a hydraulic ram pump being designed within the lower portions of the Great Pyramid, but I disagree with most of his layout and conclusions.

So much time was invested in this project that it had to be completed. It developed into an obsession with the ancient Egyptian civilization.

By April of 2000 I had created a working prototype. Within a few months we were drawing water for our home. Some of the initial details and conclusions were wrong in this early design, but the prototype was essentially the correct in layout. It was then, and still is, the first and only working version of the lower half of the Great Pyramid.

The year 2000 also saw the creation of the "Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association". A brainchild of Dr. John DeSalvo, the association aimed towards unifying the scholarly work of alternate theorists. I was invited to join for the advisory board in October 2000 and was astounded by the talent soon to support the Giza site.

The next two years have seen constant verification of various details. I have tried at least 100 different configurations. Much like my experience at sea, the simplest configuration was much closer to being right than many of the later configurations.

The lower area of the Great Pyramid was a nearly indestructible machine with two or three moving parts. It could have run for years with no maintenance. It may have run for a hundred years . . . quite possibly a thousand!

Let’s hear it for the school of heavy metal technology!
