How to Use Pyramid Power to Raise Rabbits

Does "pyramid power" exist? Can "cosmic forces" be tapped to preserve meat, grow healthier plants, and do any of a hundred other wondrous things? We hear a lot of heated discussion on this subject . . . and see far too little hard data. Few people, it seems, want to take the time to perform a controlled experiment to prove or disprove the existence of "pyramid energy". Which is why we're pleased to present the following report by Texas homesteader/experimenter James Brock.

For the last few years, I've been fascinated by pyramids and their possible influences on living matter. And I've read a good many books and articles on " pyramid power" over the past two years or so . . . but in all my readings, I never came across very much information on the subject of whether and in what ways animals might be affected by enclosure in pyramids. The only way I could find out how (and if) "pyramid energy" would affect animals — it seemed-was to experiment on my own . . . and that's precisely what I did.

The Pyramid Rabbit Hutch Experiment

A friend of mine raises rabbits as a hobby . . . so when I began searching for animals to use in my pyramid experiment, I approached him with the idea of "borrowing" some of his bunnies. MY friend thought I was a little weird . . . but he finally agreed (rather reluctantly) to let me have some rabbits.

To make the experiment more valid than it might otherwise be, I decided to start with a total of eight of the animals . . . four each from two separate litters. (I figured that this would reduce the chances of my accidentally picking the "best" individual of the litter for the pyramid hutch . . . a situation that could easily have occurred had I started with just two rabbits.)

What I did was this: I took two bucks and two does from one litter and labeled them Group A . . . then I selected two bucks and two does from the other litter and called them Group B. (The Group A bunnies were 19-day-old White New Zealanders. The Group B animals — which were 22 days old at the start of the experiment — were of the "Heinz 57" variety . . . which is to say their breeding was so mixed up it would've taken a genealogical wizard to figure it out!)
