Interview With a Pyramid-Maker – and the Results of My First Two Experiments

In a previous article, I used pyramid corners kits to construct two pyramid structures (one of metal, the other of wood) in order to carry out experiments to find out whether the literature on pyramid “power” had any truth to them. Below I’m published the results of my first two tests.  First, however, is a short interview with Craig Morrin, the founder of and the craftsman who created the wooden pyramid corners I’m using in my experiments. Craig has been a full-time pyramid maker since 2003.


Even among New Age enthusiasts and spiritual seekers, pyramids appear to be a very narrow field of interest. What attracted you to pyramids?

Craig Morrin:

CraigMorrin3I’ve always been interested in pyramids. I remember when I was in 2nd grade, I think, I wrote a report on the Great Pyramid of Giza. As I grew older I became interested in the spiritual aspects of pyramids. When I was 18, I moved to Yelm, Washington to attend Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment. It was there that I had my first exposure to all the potential benefits that working with pyramids could have.


So you started making them?

Craig Morrin:

Not at that time. On Ramtha’s specialty tape on pyramids, he was instructing someone how to make wood pyramids – so I assumed someone was already doing it. After a couple of years I realized no one was building pyramids, so I decided to do it myself. I knew something of trigonometry, but nothing of woodworking. Nonetheless I came up with a design, bought the tools and started doing it.


You were self-taught?

Craig Morrin:

I went through a LOT of trial and error; it’s really amazing how technical and complicated it is to build pyramids really well. After ten years, I finally took a woodworking course – and that’s when I realized the process would have been so much easier for me had I just taken the course at the beginning.


How do you use pyramids in your daily life?

Craig Morrin:

I built my own little “hobbit house,” a tiny earth-bermed home with a pyramid on top and a skylight. I made it out of poles that I tied together and then covered with sand, so it is not precision-made like the pyramids that I sell, but I really enjoy it. I also once built a large 13.5-foot-wide pyramid (similar to the custom-built pyramids that I sell on my website), which I used to focus and meditate and sleep in outside. It was wonderful; It seemed that I needed about one to two hours less sleep each night, and my sleep was more peaceful. I felt much more centered when focusing and meditating in my pyramid and I could get into the “zone” more quickly than normal. I found that when I thought about or focused in the pyramid on an issue with which I was having a problem, so many times insightful thoughts and solutions would come to me out of the blue.


Those were both one-of-a-kind projects. Of the pyramids you offer on your website, which one is your favorite?

Craig Morrin:

2x2PyramidI really like the 2×2 Giza Meditation Pyramid. It is simple, light-weight, and to me, the energy feels almost as powerful as my more expensive models. It really does seem that you don’t need to put sides on the pyramids for their effects to work – a frame seems to work almost as well. Pyramids are still a real mystery to me regarding how or why they work. But they do work, which is what’s important.


What do you think is the most important thing to know about pyramids?

Craig Morrin:

Ramtha has often said that pyramids can act as an amplifier of one’s thoughts. If you want something in your life, it’s useful to go into a pyramid and to visualize on what you want to create. But it is important to remember that pyramids are a tool only – they aren’t a requirement for your personal or spiritual development. It’s easy for people to give their power away to religion, crystals, psychics, or whatever – even to pyramids. But those things are all outside of yourself. Nothing outside yourself can make you truly enlightened or happy, but you can use these tools to assist you on your path if you do so without giving your power away.


Any last thoughts?

Craig Morrin:

I think that pyramid energy is very subtle, and that it can be hard for many people to notice. However, that does not mean that they are not beneficial. Perhaps the most subtle things in life are the most powerful. Pyramids, like so many things in life, are a great mystery; I would hazard a guess that no one truly knows how they really work.

And I think that’s wonderful.




EMF Measurements: FAIL (at least for now)

trifieldmeter When one reads of pyramid “power” in the popular literature, there usually is some reference or claim of a special energy being produced by virtue of the pyramid shape. Since I have an EMF Meter, I decided to use it to test whether either metal or wood pyramids would have an effect on EMF readings compared with a nearby control. Several readings were taken at different times of day (morning, midday and afternoon). During each reading, the EMF meter was placed on the same type of platform – on top a brick that was placed on a small wastepaper basket turned upside down. The platforms were placed in the center of each pyramid; the control was located a few feet away.


There were no differences – or even measureable results – for electric and radio/microwave readings taken in the metal pyramid, the wood pyramid and the control.

I found out that the AC magnetic field in my Wisconsin neighborhood is startlingly high – some impressively robust power lines (for the local paper factories) and a cell phone tower appear to be the likely culprits for readings that typically measure between 2 and 4+ milligaus (depending on how close the meter was to the object); this is a LOT higher than the AC magnetic field readings I typically measured while living in the Washington, DC area, and that I have recently measured in other nearby Wisconsin towns. While both pyramids and the control were shielded from the main power lines by my house, typical AC magnetic field readings in my backyard went from about 2.7 to 3.2 miligaus.

The AC magnetic field is constantly in flux; while getting a reading with an analog/needle pointer is much faster than a digital, it is less accurate …which makes it more difficult to draw conclusions. It was on the third day that I realized that even the operation of my digital camera caused the EMF pointer to jerk. While it seemed to me that the EMF readings in the wood pyramid – and possibly the metal pyramid – were slightly lower than at the control, it was impossible to get any reliable readings. At this point I abandoned the experiment.


There were not only no measureable results, but no reliable readings; I tried.

This would be an interesting experiment to conduct under the right conditions – in a laboratory using three separate digital EMF Meters producing a simultaneous and constant stream of recorded data that could be taken and compared. I don’t know if such an animal exists.


Seed Germination: SUCCESS!


GE DIGITAL CAMERAMuch of the pyramid literature states that seeds germinate much more rapidly within a pyramid structure compared with a control. Is this true? For this experiment I placed twelve popcorn seeds in three different two-cup glass containers (four seeds each) with a moistened paper towel (1 ¼ TBSP water each) and topped with a plastic lid (the glass containers with lids were necessary to preserve the experiments from the chipmunks and the squirrels). Each container was placed on the same platforms (overturned waste paper baskets topped with a brick) used in the EMF experiment.  Note: These seeds were not from a seed packet – I just took them out of the bag of my normal supply of popping corn.  But they were organic, so I figured they’d still have some ability to sprout.  A figure of my set-up (minus the control, which is just out of the photo) is at right.


I didn’t start checking the containers until four days after I first placed the containers outside. After all, what could happen in four days? That was a big mistake on my part because several of the seeds – in the metal and wood pyramids but not in the control – were growing like gangbusters. See the photos showing the sprouts at four days, six days and eight days.





Control Seeds (at 8 days):

  • Two of the four popcorn seeds sprouted.
  • The two unsprouted seeds look normal (they eventually molded).
  • The two sprouted seeds have three and five tendrils respectively.
  • Neither sprout has secondary tendrils.
  • The sprouts (green leaf plus root) measure 3.5 inches and 4 inches.

Metal Pyramid Seeds (at 8 days):

  • Two of the four popcorn seeds sprouted.
  • The two unsprouted seeds look normal (they eventually molded).
  • The two sprouted seeds have five and three tendrils respectively.
  • One sprout has secondary tendrils on its main root.
  • The sprouts (green leaf plus root) measure 6 inches and 7.5 inches.

Wood Pyramid Seeds (at 8 days):

  • Three of the four popcorn seeds sprouted.
  • The single unsprouted seed looks normal (it eventually molded).
  • The three sprouted seeds have seven, seven and four tendrils respectively.
  • All three sprouts have secondary tendrils on their main roots.
  • The sprouts (green leaf plus root) measure 8 inches, 7.5 inches and 4 inches.


Being placed in a pyramid causes seeds to sprout and grow at a much faster rate in comparison with a control.

Caveat: I need to repeat this experiment. It’s always possible that the control seeds were duds. And while it appears that the wood pyramid had a greater affect on the germination and growth of the seeds, it also might just be a fluke. I’ll try this again later to see whether I’m able to obtain similar results.

  1. Hi! I just wanted to say how cool it is that you are doing these pyramid experiments! And I’m excited to see the seed results, and even the EMF results, such as they were. Always something to learn. 🙂

    Also, have you seen the older Mythbuster episode where they did pyramid experiments? It also produced mixed results. The one clear success I recall was when they cut an apple in half and put half in a pyramid and half outside, and the one in the pyramid still looked ok but the outside one turned brown much more quickly. Of course, Adam, one of the main mythbusters (although he wasn’t the one running the experiment) easily dismissed the one clear success with an explanation that oil from the cutting tool got on the apple and preserved it more. It didn’t explain why it only happened on the half in the pyramid though! He just was really annoyed at these kinds of experiments – not ‘science’ to him, I guess – LOL. What WOULD have been sciency is if they’d done it correctly and repeated the experiment with a proven clean blade, but of course, that didn’t happen. 🙂

    Anyway, thanks for this. Enjoying your blog!

  2. Thanks, Kristen. I haven’t seen the Mythbuster episode, I’ll look it up. I’m continuing on with more experiments. Currently I’m doing one with watermelon slices – while it’s not turning out like I thought it would, the results are …interesting. But that’s for a future post.

  3. While not related to pyramid power per se, this is equally fascinating in its own way and has global implications:

  4. You’re right, Mike – it’s an interesting article.

  5. Very cool! I look forward to reading about your next trial!

  6. Say, you got a nice blog post.Thanks Again.

      • Excellent result.
        I want to build pyramid to know the effect on water.
        But need your support,

        Which type of pyramid has highest effect?

        Which material i have to use? wood or any specific metal?

        How many angel, side?
        (4 sided or 3 sided, height etc…)

        • Hi Rohit,

          For me, of the two pyramids I experimented with (metal and wood), the wood pyramid had the greatest effect. I only used the four-sided pyramid model with the angles and slope approximating the pyramids of Giza. I have not worked with water.

          It would be interesting to do experiments with a three-sided pyramid (actually it’s four-sided if one considers the base a side) since a tetrahedron is one of Plato’s solids, but I haven’t done so. Within sacred geometry, however, the tetrahedron is associated with the element of fire. If you were looking to work with something to affect water, you might think about using an icosahedron (20 “sides” made up of 20 equilateral triangles). Also one of Plato’s solids, the icosahedron is associated with the element of water so it might be more appropriate for whatever you are seeking to do.

          I’m not an expert on pyramids – I’m just someone who wonders whether reality is bigger than what we’ve been told and who does a bit of investigation to see whether other paths might hold opportunities for us. For in-depth questions about pyramids I’d refer you to Craig Morrin who I interviewed in this article – he has been working professionally with pyramids all his life.
