Hi Jean

Nice to see some work being done on comparing the pyramid to Earth's size.

While I haven't read through all the posts here, I will assume someone has pointed the following out, so maybe you can direct me to the discussion.

You say on your site:

"What can we deduce from it ? Two things :

That the Architect knew perfectly the dimensions of our planet, its factor of flattening of 1/298 or 0.0033528... and of its average volumetric radius computed by the World Geodetic System of the Earth.

That the Architect used the time and the 86400 seconds of a 24-hour day."

How did you reconcile the Earth's rotation of nearly 361 degrees to have our 86,400 seconds of time, to the Earth's size?

Does this mean the ancients used a circle of 361deg to determine Earth and the pyramid's scale in measures?

Cheers

Andrew

I'm stuck in the basement of this post, looking up through the floorboards, at a Scottish party. It's not a pretty sight.
