More Pyramid Experiments

Back in 2015 I posted three articles (here, here and here) on the results of experiments I conducted using a metal pyramid, a wood pyramid and a control.  My admittedly limited investigations suggested that the pyramids influenced the preservation of organic materials (food and plants) and encouraged the growth of seeds (organic popcorn seeds).  I recently decided to conduct some more experiments, but needed to find a smaller pyramid to use – my previous pyramid set-up was large and noticeable, something my real estate agent counseled against in the process of putting my house on the market.

Luckily for me, I found out that Precision Pyramids now sells smaller, more conveniently sized pyramids that readily set up in your house or even on your dining room table.  (Note: Although I previously interviewed Precision Pyramids Craig Morrin, I have no relationship with the company and he has no idea that I am writing and posting this article.)  I purchased a Giza Fold-up Hardboard Pyramid, which has the same angles (51.82 degrees) as those I used in my previous articles.  I oriented the pyramid towards true north.


Conducting these experiments indoors rather than outside had the advantage of taking weather out of the list of possible variables that might affect the results.  To further reduce possible variables, I covered both the pyramid and the control with towels that would block out the light.  (Both weather and light were possible variables that could have affected the results I obtained in my earlier experiments).



Popcorn Seeds

In my experiments with popcorn seeds back in 2015, I concluded that being placed in a pyramid caused the seeds to sprout and grow at a much faster rate in comparison with a control.  I decided to try and replicated these results because, you know, science.

To my surprise I found that the popcorn seeds sprouted and grew much more rapidly in the control rather than the pyramid.  Truth told, it appeared as if being in the pyramid actually inhibited growth and promoted early decay.


I put three seeds each in a covered 2–cup glass container with a paper towel moistened with 1.5 tablespoons of water.  Whether control or pyramid, neither container had access to light.






On day five it appeared that the control group was growing at a faster rate that the pyramid group.  The roots were a bit thicker in the control group, and all three seeds had had produced healthy, incipient stems.  In the pyramid group, two of the three seeds had produced less vigorous stems, and one seed had produced no stem at all.





The day ten results showed that the control seeds were developing secondary roots more vigorously and at a more rapid rate that the pyramid group.  All three control seeds had sprouted steps, with only two out of the three pyramid seeds doing so.





The day fifteen results were much more dramatic, with one of the pyramid seeds basically just rotting away.  The pyramid seed growth appeared anemic compared with that of the control seed.






Whoa, I was not expecting that.

So I tried it again with the same set-up.


Popcorn Seeds – 2nd Try

On day four all three of the control seeds had sprout roots and incipient steps, while only two of the pyramid seed had done so.







Taking the photograph for day 9, I accidentally switch the positions of the pyramid and the control  In this photo the control is on the left and the pyramid seeds are on the right.  All the seeds of both pyramid and control have sprouted, with the control popcorn seeds.  One of the pyramid seeds still hasn’t a stem, while those of all three control seeds have.  And notice how the roots of the pyramid seeds have started to spiral!




On day 15 both the pyramid and control seeds showed vigorous growth, but the roots of the control were still longer and healthier.  One pyramid seed had roots as long as those of the control, but it was thinner.  The roots of the other two pyramid seeds were much shorter than those of the control.  One of the pyramid seed had still not sprouted a stem.  (Yes, it’s difficult to see all this in the photo, but there was no good way to to it.)




Unlike my experiments in 2015, my results indicated that being placed inside a pyramid was detrimental to the health and growth of popcorn seeds.  What am I to make of this?

I think my results still suggest the sprouting and growth of popcorn seeds are affected by being placed in a pyramid structure.  If I’d had the time, I would have run this experiment another 5 or 6 times.  One variable between the experiment in 2015 and the these two experiments is something I couldn’t control – the proximity of the seeds to the apex of the pyramid.  It is said that it is important to place whatever object is to be studied about one third to one half ways up the pyramid.  I did this with my original experiments; I also did this with my recent ones.  The small size of the pyramid in my latest experiments, however, dictated that those same seeds lay just a few inches from the pyramid’s apex.  Next time (!) I’ll need to switch it up a bit by locating the seeds on the floor, halfway up, and at the apex itself.


For my other experiment I decided to find out whether being placed in a pyramid affected the the time it took for milk to go bad.  (Yes, I am weird.)  The first time I ran the experiment there was no difference in the results – neither sample of milk went bad, both smelling slightly musty/cheesy with a solid layer at the bottom as if the milk was trying to make itself into cheese or yogurt.

But I was using raw milk (neither homogenized nor pasteurized) which is known for becoming harmlessly sour at room temperatures.  So I tried it again with regular milk (organic, but homogenized and pasteurized) from the grocery store.


I started out by placing one cup of milk in a cover 2-cup container.  (When I checked them on days 5 and 10 there was really nothing to see, so I didn’t include the photos here.)






When I opened the covers on day 15 they didn’t look too much different except for a whitish/light grey mold growing on a section of the surface of the pyramid milk.  You might recall that when I experimented with watermelon back in 2015, there was a similar mold growing on the watermelon that was placed in both the wood and metal pyramid structures.  While the appearance of my two samples was nearly identical, the smell was …not.  The control sample had gone very bad (use your imagination).  In contrast, the pyramid sample smelled fresh and a little cheesy.


When I drained the excess liquid off the two milk samples, the control milk had bad-smelling lumps at the bottom.  The pyramid milk had a layer of soft solids.  Because the pyramid sample didn’t sample I decided – in the name of science – to taste it.  (Kids!  Don’t do this at home!)  Keep in mind that this was milk that had been left out at room temperature for 15 days – happily for me it tasted like farmer’s cheese (that was seriously in need of some salt, however).




Where To Go From Here

It’s clear that my experiments – both in 2015 and recently – suggest that pyramids can influence the sprouting, growth, preservation and decay rates of plant and animal products.  The results point to geometry and shape being a meaningful component of energy.  There needs to be some serious refining of variables, research into effects and investigations into practical applications.  It’s a field of study that should be conducted by true scientists in official laboratories – not just by me in my backyard.

While there has been a certain amount of research in Russia, I do not know of any similar studies being conducted in the west – especially if the scientists concerned wish to retain their professional reputations and government funding.  But the results I obtained in my pyramid experiments make me wonder what else we are missing.  How can we intentionally create homes, communities and places of work to be life affirming?  How can we harness the power inherent in geometrical shapes and designs to produce healthy energy that is basically free?

We’ve gone down a certain path in the development of our society.  I often wonder if we took a wrong turn.

  1. whats the differents from a pyramid and controled pyramid and does anything have to be in it or outside it it

    • Hey Ronald. The “control” is not a pyramid – it’s the same exact set-up as inside the pyramid (i.e., popcorn seeds in a moist paper towel in a covered bowl), but just outside the pyramid. The goal is to detect whether there is such a thing as “pyramid power” by seeing whether something being placed inside a pyramid changes anything in comparison to the exact same thing that’s outside the pyramid. Reducing the variables is why I covered both the pyramid with its containers of popcorn seeds/milk and the control container of popcorn seeds/milk with cloth – I was trying to make sure that all the containers had the same exact amount of sunlight (none, because that was easier). This last experiment was a lot more haphazard than my previous ones – I was in the middle of getting my house ready to sell and was short of time so I was not as careful to make sure that, for example, the containers were stacked in the exact same order each time I measured the results. This was a mistake – I believe the results of my other pyramid experiments more truly reflect the truth of the thing – that a pyramid shape does have an affect on both the growth and decay of biological specimens. That said, I’ll probably try to repeat the experiment – more carefully this time – when I find a new place to live. Thanks for reading!

  2. wheres is north true north and magnetic north. does the pyramid have to face a certain direction for it to work i have a 7 foot one i sit inside

    • Hi Ronald,

      It is said that a non-metallic pyramid works best aligned to true north, and a metallic pyramid to magnetic north. While you can find different instructions for pyramid alignment all over the internet, I used the ones provided by Precision Pyramids ( You can read the alignment instructions at

      On his Precision Pyramid website, Craig Morrin also mentions that subterranean waterways and ley lines, etc, are also important. Craig has a link, but I don’t know much about that.

      I have also heard that where you are in the pyramid also affects outcome. When I did my experiments, I placed them on bases that put them in the physical middle of the pyramids. Had I put them on the ground, would the outcome have been as successful? I don’t know. Similarly, it could be that laying down in a pyramid to meditate would not be as effective as sitting up on a cushion or something in a way that the placement of your head is actually in the physical middle or 2/3 up in the pyramid. I need to do more experiments, but will not be able to do so until I settle down (I’ve been on long-term travel for the past year).

      Good luck!

  3. Has anyone ever conducted experiments around a pyramid using an e.m. field detector – in the dark, different spectra of light, laser, infrared and ultraviolet reactions ???

    • Hey Marc, Not that I’ve heard of. The Russians have a history of doing large-scale, serious pyramid experiments, and if anyone has done it, my bets would be on them. That said, if they’ve used any sort of e.m. field detectors, it hasn’t made it into the popular literature yet.

  4. Robert Waichunas

    I have been following “” lots of information on pyramid energy.

    • Thanks for the suggestion, Robert – I’ve bookmarked the link. I’ve been traveling for the last year and a half (and am currently sheltering in place with a relative) so I haven’t had the opportunity to carry out more experiments, but hopefully I’ll begin to do so by the end of summer.
