Hey guys, today we are going to look at an experiment called ‘Pyramid Power’. Do Pyramids have some kind of mysterious powers? All around the world, ancient builders created pyramid-shaped structures in places like Egypt, India, and Mexico, etc. Do they have some unknown effect on our bodies? Some people claim that the Pyramidal structure itself is very special and has some strange powers. In this experiment, I am going to test, if Pyramid Structures have strange effects or not. So, I have created a Pyramid made of Granite. The base is made of one granite slab and I can lift this whole thing up and you can see that it is hollow inside, just like Egyptian Pyramids. What is the idea? I am going to cut some fruits and vegetables and put some pieces inside the Pyramid, and I will leave some pieces outside the Pyramid. And I want to find out if there is any difference in how they decompose over a period of time. Just think of the apple as a Human Body, and we can see what happens. I want to make this experiment as scientific as possible, so, I have also created a granite house. It has windows and a door, but they are all going to be shut closed. It has a granite slab as a base and the top can be removed and closed. Now, what is the need for this granite cube? This is important to determine if the shape of the pyramid has anything to do with the preservation or growth of cells & not the material. Look at the Pyramid & the House. These 2 objects are made of the exact same material and have almost identical volume of air inside. The only difference is the shape. So if there is a difference in deterioration, we can conclude it is because of the SHAPE of the objects, since the materials, the volume inside and control materials are the same. Now, here I have an apple, a banana, a potato and an egg plant, also known as brinjal. I am going to cut all of them into 4 pieces and I am going to leave one piece outside, in open air, one piece inside the stone house, and one piece inside the Pyramid. Don’t ask me what happens to the 4th piece, there is a surprise reveal, if you watch till the end of the video. While these fruits and vegetables will tell us about how degradation happens in these three settings, it does not show about growth of the body. So, I wanted to study this, and decided to take a few small cups, fill them with soil and put fenugreek seeds inside them. I will put one inside the stone house and one inside the Pyramid, but I will not leave one outside, because if I leave one outside, it will get light, while the other 2 structures are totally dark. So this is how the entire set up looks today. And this is Day 1. So I am going to come and see how everything looks after 24 hours. Day 2 – Day 7 – Various stages of decomposition shows if Pyramids have special powers or not!
