He continued to mention their names. He also said that there is a corridor under the Khufu pyramid that passes northeast until it connects to the statue of the Sphinx.

Dr. Luix Avartz, a Nobel Laureate in Physics, did an X-ray study within the pyramid in 1960, confirming the writer's veracity. He established that these three stones existed through it and that they were the identical stones that later, the Egyptian Antiquities Department, in collaboration with a French expedition, drilled a hole in one of them to investigate what was within.
