Speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 meters per second.
And the line of latitude, 29.9792458 degrees north of the equator runs through the location of the Great Pyramid.
What are the chance odds of this correlation?
Here's my thinking.
1. In general, we are looking for any "line" of latitude that can be expressed as 299,792,458 - the meters per second count. While it is obvious that we are using the prevailing system, the subtler, more general point is that we could achieve this result with other mapping systems, if they could convert to the string '299792458'.
2. That said, is our real-life result the only way that we could achieve the light speed correlation under the current system?
The answer is no.
Think about this: Surely people would mention the light speed correlation if the GP turned out to be 29.9792458 degrees south of the equator. So, in fact there are two ways that the GP could provide this hit with our current system:
29.9792458 degrees north of the equator
29.9792458 degrees south of the equator.
Edit...there are two more
2.99792458 degrees north and south can be accommodated by our system.
3. So, some learned men and women will declare the to be due to chance. But if the light speed meter correlation really is due to luck, then how often can we expect to see this result appear under TRULY controlled conditions?
4. With this in mind, we ask how unlikely it is that a structure that is the size of the GP would be over either such line under controlled random conditions. Imagine the GP landing on Earth as with no prior consideration to location and that there was an equal chance that the GP could land anywhere between what we call between 90 degrees South and 90 degrees North of the equator. What are the chances that the GP would land on ant of our 4 light-friendly lines?
First, we note that the GP is about 755 wide north-to-south.
Next, the distance from North to South pole is est 12500 miles which converts to about 65,000,000 total feet.
That's 65 million feet compared to 755 total feet.
So, the distance from pole to pole consists of about 87500 755-foot GP-like segments.
There are 4 chances on 87k or about a 1 in 22k chance expectation that the GP would fall over one of these lines.
Down from the original estimate by x4, but very long chance result nonetheless.
Finally, by the same reasoning we have another 4 chances when considering longitude. And so, when long and lat are considered, it looks like we have 8 chances in about 87,000, or 1-in-11,000 overall odds.
