Greetings Jacob
the scales of Maat sway to a generous measure of assumption that the AE constructed a space oddesy graveyard for their deceased kings, when subsequent only, following an extended period, it was realized Earth is a sphere and all the geodesy and astronomy associated therewith became established (to this day considerably lacking... completeness).

Non-withstanding the paradox, many insist to accredit the Egyptians with a task they were incapable of - then and now - especially in the event of sole dependency upon home grown expertise - even allowing sourcing such globally... since Earth orbital dynamics (mistakenly) are academically considered to be well understood.

All the math and there is no end to it, as the current topic and countless others attest, is quite meaningless without a practible purpose in a meaningful context - comprehension thereof is fundamental to intended dimensions orientation etc.

No aspect of our natural world and surrounding environs conform to rounding -- it is what it is -- including time. However, that does not prevent the number crunchers from trying to force an issue (for whichever dumbfounding reason being anyone's guess :o)

Whatever could be proved regarding the Ancient Egyptians' prowess at mathematics has no bearing on the pyramids, nor their purpose. There is no measuring rod - the only correct answer is in what the relationships represent.

Next we'll analyze handwriting - mathematical fingers, no doubt, produce neat, tidy, evenly spaced script (free of spelling error of course) and grammatically perfect construct compared to say a physician's scribble... upon which prescription medicine for treatment of one's health depends - worse, the hand brandishing the scalpel...
