How the pyramids work: Triboelectric generators of electricity

So I finally figured out what pyramids do and how they work.  They generate electricity based on triboelectricity.  Triboelectricity is generated from rubbing dissimilar materials together.  Basically you make static electricity.  Pyramids are optimized shapes for generating this electricity from air.  4 sides and 51.5 degree angle with the ground; and oriented towards the prevailing wind (north in the case of egypt) Basically what you are doing is forcing the air to deflect off of a surface no matter which way the wind is blowing.  The harder the deflection the more electrons you can steal from air.  

Basically you want two things for the coating of the pyramid, very electronegative elements (negative on the triboelectric series) and conductive so you can accumulate and transmit the charge.  The best thing is Teflon to coat the pyramid with since it is ultra low near -200 on the triboelectric series.  However this charge cannot be stored since it isn't conductive.  This is why food doesn't stick to teflon because it steals electrons from your food but since the electrons stay stuck to the teflon and aren't conducted away, the newly acquired electrons repel your food.  So this is bad since we want to harvest the electrons.  Well two other elements are also quite electronegative; carbon and precious metals especially gold.  Copper is a great conductor  and also pretty electronegative.  So we can make a paint that includes PTFE (teflon) powder, graphite powder, and copper powder.  The binder can be liquid latex which is also good at stealing charge.  The paint should not be dilute, because the graphite and copper need to be closely compacted together to transmit electricity.  Ideally you would mix the teflon powder, say 50% with 25% copper powder and 25% graphite powder, sinter that mixture together, and then grind that into a powder and use that by adding that to the liquid latex.  But if that is too much work you can just mix 25% teflon powder with 25% copper powder, 25% graphite powder and roughly 25% liquid latex.  After painted on it should be heat treated to help contract everything together and improve conductivity.  You should use an ohm meter to check.  Another idea is 2 layers of paint; first apply a layer of copper powder with just enough liquid latex mixed in to adhere, then heat treat this with a heat gun, then apply a second layer using 50% graphite and 50% ptfe powder and just enough liquid lates to allow it to adhere, then heat treat this layer with a heat gun.  Make sure your method avoids the formation of cracks in the paint.  The layers should be as thin as possible.

Now the pyramids were made from limestone blocks which is conductive and therefore can conduct charge for us.  Lime mortar is a great way to build our pyramid, and should be made with the minumum amount of water and compacted down if possible, or make the mortar into compacted bricks/blocks and use a thin layer of clay as mortar between the blocks.  The key here is we want it as conductive as possible, so we can use charcoal chunks as filler material in the lime mortar, and also coil or strew some bare copper wire (no insulation) around the mix as well.  The key here is we want to transfer all the charge to the base of the pyramid described below (the top copper sheet).

The pyramid should be insulated from ground.  The pyramids used Basalt as foundation material, and basalt is a much better electrical insulator than even fiberglass.  On top of that basalt layer (so contacting the pyramid) ideally you will have a very conductive plate or sheeting like copper.  This Basalt insulator is key so that the pyramids charge can be stored and not bleed off to ground.  Below the basalt you should have another sheet of copper.  Water will naturally be drawn from the ground toward the charged pyramid just like water in your faucet is drawn to a charged comb: and you have a passive water pump if you so choose.  However, you want to prevent the water from infiltrating cracks in your basalt layer, because if the water touches the top conductive layer (copper sheet) of your pyramid it will discharge the stored electricity. Also you can charge a capacitor or battery by connecting the top copper sheet to one end of a capacitor, and the bottom copper sheet to the other end of the capacitor.  The top copper sheet is your negative electrode and the bottom copper sheet is your positive.

And there you have it.  The pyramid is twofold, a triboelectric generator and a basic capacitor all in one.  Also a well.  And now you know how the pyramid works and why they were built all across the world.

WARNING:  During a sandstorm your pyramid will generate MUCH more electricity than normal!  This is because the sand striking the pyramid will give us much more electricity than air alone.  Stand clear, because if you touch the pyramid, it may kill you like the Ark of the Covenant!
