Cheops Pyramid; Electrical?

May 13th, 1996 - Comments to Tony Smith by Stephen Goodfellow

A quick thought on the red granite layers above the Kings Tomb; I remember reading (Tompkins, "Secrets of the Great Pyramid" Harper & Row 1971)

"...The new chamber had a strange effect on those who entered; it turned them black. Instead of bat dung, the floor was covered with a thin powder which when analyzed turned out to be exuviae, or the cast off shells and skins of insects. Of living insects there were none to be found...."

I wonder if, upon closer inspection of that dust, it turned out to be a residual of the Lac Beetle (as in shellac), which was used by the Ancient Egyptians as their source a lacquer.
Forget for a moment that the pyramid is a monument and think of the Kings Tomb electrical terms. I have not researched it, but I'd lay odds that sandstone and red granite have very different electrical properties. Consider the granite layers, the insulation. Could it be possible that we are looking at a giant transformer or capacitor?

I do not know if this has occurred to anyone else. It probably has. I'd be curious to read something about it.
