This paper is written in the form of an address to the people of Egypt at the time of the construction of the pyramids. The paper instructs the people of Egypt to engineer and build a triumphant pyramid for Khufu at Giza. It explains the need for the pyramid and how the people will be rewarded for its construction by the Pharaoh Khufu. It also explains, in detail, how the pyramid will be constructed, including its materials and architecture.

From the Paper:

"A specialized team of workers will also be assigned to creating the pharaoh's inner chamber. The inner chamber shall not be constructed of the Giza granite but rather, of special stone from Aswan. Do not balk. We cannot be halfhearted with so sacred an endeavor. From Aswan we will trek through the sands to reach Giza because it is our sacred duty, because we know that by assisting the pharaoh we assist ourselves and our children and all of Egypt. There is no better way for us to show our gratitude for the king's will on earth than to participate in a project such as this. The people of Egypt will unite just as the Kingdoms of the South and North were united under Narmer (Hooker). No other pharaoh before Khufu had secured the integrity of Egypt, and this pyramid is his worthy tribute. His inner chamber shall be laden with treasure, befitting for a king such as he. The inner chamber shall be replete with sacred texts used to guide the pharaoh's soul to the afterlife, and it shall be replete with gold and jewels that the pharaoh be greeted as a god in the afterlife."
