Every man and his dog have their own versions of Thom's meg yard . Mine is 2.72 feet and i am sticking to it. Hugh's is 2.7207 and it works at the GP. We fall out about this all the time but are friends. He is very funny.
'Always an interesting take on Megalithic measures. The ratio .3666r being the inverse Earth/Moon diameter ratio as 11/30, although Jacob prefers the obverse idea of a MY as, 2.7272r. Ft. Also suggested by Michell long ago. 375/374 to your unit of 2.72 Ft. Hm, maybe Stonehenge and Old Sarum were early predecessors of today's modern particle accelerators, LOL!'
2.727272727272727r x 0.36666666666r = 1 exactly.
The argument is the MY is base 17 and any number that is not base 17 is not Thom's system so Hugh does not qualify. If you don't have base 17 you are not linking to the nodal cycle of 6800 days. 6798.3 days to be exact,3999/4000
2.7 x 100/99 = 2.7272727272727
0.33 x 10/9 = 0.36666666666r
So 2.7 x 100/99 x 0.33 x 10/9 = 1.
It is a different way of looking ay number 1. This is what our ancestors knew. i find it quite mindblowing.
100/99*10/9 = 1.12233445566778899 natural numbers x 0.33 x 2.7 = 1
We are looking at a factor of 0,981 and this is 11 x 81 or 11 x 9 x 9 a square.
2.7272727272 is not the megalithic yard but close enough.
