Around 4,500 years ago, the capstone upon the summit of the Great Pyramid of Giza absorbed the energy released by the Tartarus Rotation and saved the earth from major flooding and catastrophic weather. This capstone was later divided up by Alexander the Great, with one piece hidden within each of the seven wonders other than the Pyramid. When the seven pieces are placed on top of the Pyramid, during another solar event, they can bring 1,000 years of peace or power for the nation which possesses them.
