That's pretty good showing 1732 1/2 cubits...sure is a simple sum...but what is it good for? You go through your whole quote and that sum and don't use it for anything and you said it was a secret thing that no-one else kinda knows about...? I don't get it.

You turn a ro from weight to distance and it goes nowhere...I don't get it. You offer up fractional examples of square roots and phi that are close to the exact figures and state that the ancients didn't know the exact figures...so how would they know they are close? I don't get it. And then you say this:

One interesting thing about 1 + 1/2 + 1/7 + 1/14 + 1/56 and just for fun because we know the Ancient Egyptians did not use angles as we do, but is: tan 97/56 = 60º 0’ 4.75” cotan 56/97 = 29º 59’ 55.25” compared to our measure for the latitude of G1 29ª 58’ 45.12“N having a difference of 0º 1’ 10.13” from our current noted location for G1.

I don't get where you got 97 from in order to assess that they didn't use angles as we do, and provide a cotan result to show they put the pyramid close to something that is exact...and that I don't get whatsoever...how can you offer up something to say they got close when you put in something to show 'close'. You have no idea at all the stuff I have done over the last few years, do you?

I'll offer up one of those things, from 3 years ago, describing the simple use of three circles and radiations within them defining intersections where the intersections can be measured both from any of the circle's centre points, or to any of the other intersections within the diagram. A busy image with associated squares and rectangles found within, and just showing the radiations associated with intersections, can be found here

Square roots, phi and certainly logarithm amounts are found in such a simple construction that begins from this

That is just the 15deg radiations...you should see what other degree radiations offer up...certainly all kinds of logarithm results.

And really, how simple of a construct is that? And maybe you would say that the ancients weren't able to come up with such a simple diagram...and not be able to measure between different intersections, nor compare those measures, nor draw straight lines to show squares and rectangles, let alone draw a circle.

This simple diagram shows perfect values for square roots and phi, not 'close-tos'.

I know, I know..."Where is such a diagram from ancient history?"

They could build Khufu's pyramid but they couldn't come up with a diagram of three circles of 1 unit radius spaced 1 unit apart on a straight line, and divide the circumference up into equal radiations?

You have no argument whatsoever saying they didn't.

if necessity is the mother of invention, why is there a monster under my bed?
