You need to read my book 'Stonehenge the Eclipse' to see where I am coming from and I don't think you have read it. Once the project was completed the next stop was always going to be the GP because of Hugh's work. My driver has and always will be promoting the work of Alexander Thom because his work is on a completely different level and the treatment meted out to him by academia was absolutely shocking.
The sekhed is obviously a superior unit than Pi within the design of the GP and I learned this from you. It works three dimensionally. So why would they focus on 22/7, they used 256/81 and 22/7 is naturally built into the design of the GP by using the sekhed.
Using 256/81 shows that they used the diameter to relate to the circle so they would have known 22/7. What happens at Stonehenge is that the Aubrey circle works as a Pi manipulation device centred on two versions of Pi 1760/560 and 1632/520. Real pi lies in between but they used 31416/10000.
1760/560 leads to the GP but it is 1760/280 per your analysis. This is why the base will always be divisible by 1760 to produce the cubit in inches, because the GP is designed in feet and inches as Hugh has demonstrated.
This version of Pi (Thom Pi) can be varied without changing the Pi number. It can be 5440 / 1733.333r or 1632/520 keeping the Pi relationship intact. There is a reason for this. The nodal cycle of the Moon is 6800 days or 5440 / 0.8.
Eclipse danger periods occur every 173.333r days so 3 periods every 520 days. The designers of the monuments were very interested in the Eclipse, this is common knowledge.
When this investigation started it was necessary to set a framework out to direct the focus and is my first book and it only looks at Stonehenge. I knew nothing about it or how to predict eclipses but I do now.
This is what the book laid out and it was written with virtually a zero knowledge base. The guy who reviewed it said it was not clear to him what the book was trying to do. He obviously did not read chapter two 'Searching for Clues'
'For clarity, proposals that will be followed up in this book are outlined here, based on a review of Professor Thom's findings.
The first is that they used the foot and the mile as well as the megalithic yard, this is covered in chapter three.
The second is that they developed a set of divine numbers based on their understanding of the natural universe and the mathematical studies they worked on and that these numbers were used to plan an build the monuments to embed spirituality into the designs. This is covered in chapter four.
The third is that they used a simple four season calendar of 91 days per season to provide constant comparable years. This is covered in chapter five.
The fourth is that they developed the modern time system by experimentation at the Greater Cursus and Woodhenge. This is covered in chapter seven.
These proposals are as a result of reviewing Professor Thom's findings.The assumptions are that they were capable of doing all these things as outlined by the professor's work.'
I am still doing this and the initial assumptions have proved to be, in the main, proven at Stonehenge. When I wrote the book it had not been possible to link the imperial system to the one Thom had discovered but just after publishing the relationship surfaced and led to an investigation of the primes within the designs. I had them as 1-13 in the book but had missed the base prime of Thom's system number 17.
Your assumptions of what I am trying to do at the GP are way off beam. my objective is to demonstrate that it is designed against the megalithic yard and that the megalithic yard is expressed via the cubit which was used instead of the megalithic yard. Most probably the reasons for using the cubit outweigh using the megalithic yard just as using the sekhed outweighs the use of 22/7.
It is not possible to do any of the above without using fractional mathematics.
The findings at Stonehenge drive the investigation on this website.
The key is that the cubit x 1.584 = the megalithic yard if 1760 cubits are in the GP base. The GP height is 280 cubits.
1760 and 280 are imperial bases, no question.
You have shown that 1760 is not fixed, different cubits can give a higher figure, eg 20.25 inches and Michell did the same, but the cubits being looked at in the investigation always have 1760 in the base.
So for example working down from the top of the pyramid 20.25 gives a base of 35640 inches and height of 5670 inches. So we are a distance from the base, 101.1818181818r inches to be precise. Jim can explain the importance of these numbers and they are lunar based.
Also working down from the top of the pyramid 20.00 inches gives a base of 35200 inches and height of 5670 inches. So we are a distance from the base, 171.1818181818r inches to be precise. Jim can explain the importance of these numbers as well and they are lunar based.
171.1818181818r - 101.1818181818 = 70 for a reason
'As I see it you, like most, are so wrapped up attempting to prove their use of pi to even investigate let alone comprehend the level of significance of the 5 1/2 seked held by the Ancient Egyptians. '
Not so, well off the mark.
5.5 sekhed is 14/11 x 11/2 = 7 please see above, everyone knows how may days there are in a week.
Do you know what an MOD is? megalithic one day unit and it is 1/7 making 22/7 represent 22 days.
I am following your rules Jacob but coming from a very different angle and I really value what you have achieved and if you publish I will be first in the queue.
the circle builders in the UK were into pi and that is what Thom tells us. This version of Thom pi as 5440 / 1733.333r is my discovery that unlocks the Aubrey circle it is base 17 divided by base 13 and imperial pi is base 11 divided by base 7 the two units are designed exactly the same way and this is a fact.
A 91 day season was suggested in the first book. Eventually it surfaced within the Aubrey design.
1760/560 x 5440/ 1733.333r x 91 = 897.6 Thom's Aubrey circumference. The complexity is quite something, it is an eclipse prediction system based on Pi. the 28 and 26 day lunar cycles are being monitored against 6600 days and 6800 days the nodal cycle.
1.32 x 6800 = 897.60
1.36 x 6600 = 897.60
Dual systems where 1760/560 x 5440/1733.333r represents one solar day. It is astonishing.
3.142857143 x 3.138461538 = 9.863736264 x 91 = 897.60
And at the GP pi squared = 9.87654321.
