'Now for the howls of protest!
It's generally held that the dimensions of G1 make good sense with respect to the observed ratios. However, this does not apply well to G2 as I’ve described it above. Should this specification be correct then it might be suggested that a height of 272 cubits and a base of 408 cubits would be more in keeping with the design. However, this would suggest a G2 cubit of 528mm. '
To me this is a quite stunning analysis of G2. It uses fractional math and it must do and explains the angles which it must do.
Does it fit Petrie's analysis? I don't know anything about G2 except what you guys and Dune keep posting so your figures have to be used. I know enough to be able to place some reliance on them.
I keep reading that G1 is not as important within the overall design as G2 because it is the central pyramid.
Based on the figures you are producing first off G2 using Geoff's figures is designed as a base 100 pyramid and the Pi ratio is 3 and the megalithic yard is used disguised within the size of the cubit.
Using Jim's figures G1 is designed as a base 99 pyramid and the Pi ratio is 22/7 and the imperial foot is used disguised within the size of the cubit.
Once the cubits are taken out of play the figures become very simple as Geoff shows.
272/408 = 2/3 or 100/150 if the base unit is 2.72 cubits. So the design is base 100.( against the megalithic yard x the cubit)
280/440 = 7/11 =63/100 x 100/99 so a base 99 design.
the problem with Jim's analysis is he goes beyond Petrie's base of 3023 imperial feet or 36276 imperial inches but there is a reason for this based on the numbers being produced by yourselves and Dune ( who has also found the megalithic yard in the G1 analysis.).
Petrie 3023 feet 36276 inches (also Hugh Franklin's analysis)
Dune 3023.1666r feet 36278 inches
Jim 3025 feet 36300 inches.
36300 / 99 = 366.666r the ancient solar year found using base 99.
This is only found when Jim's cubit is used but it is way past Petrie's first set of Figures somewhere between 36276 and 36278 according to Petrie, Cole and Dash.
Using Hugh's figures the GP is designed against real root 4/3 x real Pi using the Hugh Franklin megalithic yard.
the G1 ratio is 1760/280 and the G2 ratio is 1632/272 or 22/7 and 21/7 the difference being 1/7 and this is one day as the MOD ( the megalithic one day unit ) that can be found within the SH design. 22/7 is three weeks and one day.
Because the cubit is variable but the ratio's are fixed the cubit length does not affect the calculations between the fixed ratios, it becomes irrelevant.
cheers happy new year
