Hello David...I notice that both you and Jim cite prominent metrologists but never yourselves actually define the salient criteria you would test on an ancient structure built with an unknown metric.

Obviously the absolute lengths of the cubit, meter, and various feet are insufficient in your minds to settle this. Dune thinks in Imperial inch, you think in Imperial feet, and Jim thinks in Indus feet. Immediately it should occur to y'all that only one of you can be correct and you could all be wrong. At the very least you should make an effort to define a test which unequivocally distinguishes between the three proposals. Unless you wish to propose that the Great Pyramid was designed intentionally using all three measures to enshrine the various esoteric features, you cannot get around this.

If absolute length does not cut it and neither do round numbers in one but not the other metrics, then you must take it to the next level...partitions.

A cubit is 7 palms
An Imperial foot is 12 inch
An Indus foot is 13.2 inch
A meter is 100 cm.

So this is what you do....you look for a length inside the Great Pyramid, either a cubit or a foot or a meter long and see if this part of the structure shows the unmistakable partition into either 7, 12, or 13.2, or 100 segments.

I have no idea why none of you have done this. This is what scholarship requires David. You write to me about Babylonia, one Million miles and Stonehenge. All that is smokescreen. If you want to walk in the foot steps of Alexander Thom for whom I have plenty of respect then do the walk not just the talk. Go to the Great Pyramid and walk up the narrow passage until you will see the proof monumentally staring at you. Have you ever done this?
