Based on a cartouche posted by Manu the royal cubit is represented by the sedge with 4 leaves and no flowers but potentially 5 flowers, the loaf represented by a semi circle and a zig zag line representing water.

The loaf as a semi circle could easily represent the Sun either half rising or setting over water as a flat horizon. A safe way to observe the Sun in Egptian times was probably as a reflection on water. The idea that a cubit length may represent solar days is not out of the question.

The wavy line representing water has 10 peaks and 9 troughs and this is the n/n-1 relationship so common in the analysis of Egyptian monuments.The canon of ancient measure as published by Michell suggests that 176/175 and 441/440 are the basis of the ancient system of measurement.

The interpretation of the symbols is as follows

The sedge represents number 7 with 4 wings and 3 sections.

the half circle represents 11/7 using Pi as 22/7.

The water represents 10/9

The unit used is the foot as suggested by Michell.

So the cubit is 10/9 x 11/7 in feet and this 110/63 feet or 1320 / 63 inches.

This breaks down as follows

10 x 11 x 12 / 9 x 7 and this is 440/21

using the canon of ancient measure to convert cubits into solar days the cubit in inches needs to be multiplied by 176/10

This gives 77440 / 210 = 368.7619048

This does not look very promising till the ratios suggested by Michell are used.

368.7619048 x 441/440 = 369.6 exactly

368.7619048 x 175/176 = 366.666r exactly this is 1000 barleycorns.

The difference between these two units is 1/10 of the eclipse month of 29.333r days so is 2.9333r days to get from 366.66r to 369.6 with the royal cubits centred by the two ratios.

What is quite surprising is that this number 369.6 is 5.6 x 66 so is a base 7 and base 11 number and this has come from the design of the royal cubit.

The Royal cubit in inches is
20.95238095 x 441/440 = 21 inches exactly

20.95238095 x 175/176 = 20.8333r inches a difference of 0.1666r inches and multiplied by 17.6 is 2.9333r inches

The royal cubit in the cartouche needs to be multiplied by 7 represented by the sedge

20.95238095 x 7 = 146.666r the eclipse unit x 10

Finally 146.666r /22 x 7 = 46.666r

146.66r - 46.666r = 100 and Thom's sacred system he discovered at Avebury is revealed.

The exact same numbers work at the Aubrey circle at Stonehenge.

There is more to this cubit length as it can be reinterpreted to represent 362.88 solar days and this x 100 is 1x2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9

Also 369.6 x 100 = 36960 representing the natural number design theory for the imperial system. 5280 x 7 = 36960

32 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 11 = 36960 disclosed in my last book ( Stonehenge the Eclipse) about the inherent design of the Aubrey circle.

The eclipse unit is very simply 5280 / 360. the Aubrey circle is 5280 x 17 = 89760.

The question is where has the 7744 come from in the solar day calculation of the royal cubit?

I had come across it in Jim Wakefield's workings but it has taken an age to find it.

Jim's Pi calculation for the volume of a sphere is where it appeared but only when translated into solar days.

360.7744 solar days x 360 x 1000 using the canon gives

129878788 a million spheres possibly?

And what is 77440?

5280 eclipse units of 14.666r


The Standard cubit using this system becomes

362.88 / 368.7619048 x 20.95238095 = 20.6181818r inches representing 362.88 solar days.
