    London. October, 1992. A Japanese man entered a government building near Chancery Lane, and made his way up to an office on the first floor - this was the London branch of the UK’s Patent Office.
    You see this man was there on behalf of Japan’s renowned Shimizu Corporation - a leading architectural and engineering firm that was and is among the top in the world; and he was there to apply for a patent. (Note, to secure their ideas globally it was necessary to apply not just in Japan). Now this particular patent, was for no ordinary idea; it was for something grand - something spectacular; the idea was to build giant pyramids in the middle of some of the largest and busiest urban centers in the world; starting with Tokyo. These infrastructures would be so large, they could house entire cities.
    But why? What was this for?
    And who exactly is the Shimizu Corporation?
    To understand this, we need to go back in time, back over 200 years ago to the company’s inception.
    This video covers:
    - Shimizu Megacity Pyramid TRY-2004
    - Megastructures
    - Pyramidal structures
    - Japanese architectural & engineering companies
    - Kisuke Shimizu
    - Edo period
    - Japan's population decline
    - Tokyo's overpopulation & overcrowding
    - Large scale construction projects
    - Floating cities, underwater cities, space hotels
    - Blade Runner (Tyrell Corporation headquarters pyramid)
    - Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza
    - Burj Khalifa & Jeddah Tower
    - 2 kilometer high building
    - Tokyo Bay
    - Megatrusses & suspended skyscrapers
    - Renewable energy of solar, wind, algae & waves
    - Japanese earthquakes & tsunamis
    - Pacific Ring of Fire
    - X-Seed 4000 (Taisei Corporation)
    - Mega-City Pyramids in Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Delhi & Dhaka
    - Largest man-made structure in history
    - Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City

    Been a while, but I'm alive! Hope you like the video.
    Edit: The English pronunciation of the word 'patent' outside of North America tends to be 'pay-tent', and within North America 'pat-tent'. Neither are wrong. (There may be a few regions that don't follow this rule exactly, but in general I think it tends to be the case).
    Correction: Before 1868 the capital was Kyoto, not Edo. Also forgot to include that a major reason the Giza pyramid is mentioned in the video is because the Shimizu pyramid is meant to have the exact same (relative) dimensional proportions.

    You can't take egypt pyramids do you people even know why the nephilims built the pyramids do you even know the reason why the nephilims took time to build them you can't just go and take something and call it you're own... Ugh I hate Japan and Tokyo they always try to take what's not there's just like the whites try to take control over everything like fuck people have a mind of you're own. You people have you're own culture you people have you're own beliefs and you're own race so use it stop using Egyptians and Greeks pyramids have a mind of you're own... This really upsetted me I'm so glad these slanted eye fucks didn't build the pyramids they know they need the big giant nephilims no human on earth can build a pyramid not even a strong machine can't even pick up the 1st block of the pyramids

    4:50 There is a growing body of serious research to suggest that Great Pyramid pre-dates the classical Egyptian period circa 2,500BC.

    Although unlikely, a large enough meteor can destroy the thing even if from far away let alone a direct hit. But its true that the pyramid itself is the biggest threat.

    The idea is flawed, why a super piramid costing 600+ billion for only 1 million ppl when you can just make Tokyo bigger, Tokio have many free space on it's borders, JUST MAKE TOKIO BIGGER WITH LESS THAN 10BILLION rather than spending 600billions (money that Japan doesn't have) on a freaking Piramid

    Ok now i have a couple things to say.
    The great pyramids of giza were built with absolutely no technology or even concrete it was built somehow in a way that it never falls without concrete or anything holding it from the bottom it was built just by men and rocks or whatever it was.
    And it was built when humans had barley any idea of what engineering is and they probably didnt know electricity too.
    It was just built on sand like just sand and the rocks that were used in it are probably bigger than your mom.

    This sounds so fucking stupid... Great way to have a population that is 110/100 claustrophobic, depressed and anxious 100/100 of the time. Also, having people just live in on the connectors, it looks like a huge waste of space, hell, probably better to just keep building Tokyo through the suburbs. How will you manage traffic to get down ? what happens if one of the transporter elevators thing breaks down, how many people will have to wait, how long will it take to navigate this mess of a pyramid once inside ? And if anyone ever wants to attack Tokyo with any sort of projectile, it would be easy to just shoot the base, or even more likely if an earthquake hits (as stated in the video) no architectural marvel will be able to survive if a crater is formed, no one would like to live in this shithole and so it will probably never be built, thank god

    wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. GIZA PYRAMIDS ARE NOT TOMBS, stop saying they were tombs. THEY WERE BUILT BEFORE THE EGYPTIANS EVER CAME TO THE AREA. recent evidence proves that the pyramids were built to be used as power plants by an ancient high tech civilization that got wiped out over 13,000 years ago.

    Or you can just develop other cities in your respective countries by providing them with access to everything that a few dozen mega corporations need to sustain themselves like Water, electricity, land space & most of all incentives to the owners upon building the companies there
    This will significantly take the load off Megacities in the world and at the same time provide employment opportunities for millions of people
    It's a win-win, but then again it will probably require multiple hundred billions of dollars per city so 😑
