Warwick asked, ‘How does the source of the Cubit lead to the designer of the GP??*

Note that it is the Royal Cubit not the standard/small cubit I am/we are concerned with here.

The architect of the Great Pyramid of Giza used the Royal Cubit.
Therefore, if we knew who (i.e. a people not an individual) invented the Royal Cubit, then we would know the earliest the Great Pyramid could have been designed.

This applies equally to the seked - the Great Pyramid's being an intended 5 1/2.
Seked 5½ is usually seen as 1 royal cubit rise to 5 ½ palms run.
However, it can be seen also as 28 digits rise to 22 digits run.
Are we to believe that the Great Pyramid’s intended height being 280rc and the half-length of a side at the base an intended 220rc is merely coincidence?

*the rest of Warwick's post is, to me, irrelevant.
