When Jim Onan stumbled upon university research on the ancient Egyptian pyramids’ supposed energy-boosting properties, he was interested enough to put the paper’s claims to the test.
When he started his amateur experiments, he could never have imagined the weird and extraordinary journey he was about to go on.
To put the theory to the test, Onan first built a series of small pyramids and carefully placed them about his home. When visitors and family members put their hands over the small constructions, they instantly felt a strange feeling, hinting that the pyramids may be producing electricity.
Onan’s interest piqued, and he decided to broaden the scope of his experiment. In his yard, he constructed a thirteen-foot-tall pyramid and asked his son, a botanist, to plant some plants. Surprisingly, they noticed that plants grown within the pyramid grew three times faster than those grown outside.
Onan was so taken aback by the power that these constructions seemed to possess that he decided to reconstruct his family’s house in the form of a pyramid. The home was built from the ground up to perfectly duplicate the design of Giza’s Great Pyramid, scaled down to a tenth of its original size.
While the construction was going on, another extraordinary incident happened. The center of the floor started to give way to a bubble of continually flowing spring water within the home. This was particularly surprising since the planners had given no indication that anything like this might happen, leading Onan to believe that the water had appeared owing to the pyramid’s construction.
Worse, one of the site’s construction workers took it upon himself to collect and drink some of the magically appearing spring water. His blood pressure fell substantially whenever he drank the water, he said.
Onan decided it was worth investigating and enlisted the help of others to gather and drink from the spring. To his amazement, they returned, claiming to have been healed of a variety of ailments.
While some have discounted Onan’s assertion as a placebo effect, his experience with pyramid structures is certainly noteworthy. Because the narrative of the pyramids erected by the ancient Egyptians is still a mystery to contemporary people, Onan’s haphazard testing may have offered the world a peek at the incredible discoveries that Egyptologists may make in the future.
