MA: Well done. I think that you have presented a good case for "a unified plan" at Giza.

SC: Coming from someone with your sceptic credentials, I shall take that as praise indeed. Thank you. :)

MA: However, if it is to be read as a "clock", it seems to me that you interpret it wrong. Where one theoretical line (a line from the Sphinx to the G2 apex) intersects another theoretical line (the Lenher-Goedicke Line), marks the date? When there are so many non-theoretical objects on the tableau that can serve as markers?

SC: My own view (and I'm not saying I'm right) is that we have to use the pyramids and the Sphinx as these are what we find are connected with the (implied) Great Giza Circle. One of the things we also find in this 'design' is that the Sphinx perfectly bisects the Lehner-Goedicke Line (i.e. the Precession Timeline) into two equal parts which is why I initially believed that was the correct line to use (giving the 3980 BC date). There are other obvious lines to the Sphinx from the main pyramids that intersects the timeline at different points (dates).

1) G1 apex to Sphinx
2) G2 apex to Sphinx
3) G3 apex to Sphinx

Any one of the above could be the correct line (date) - so which one are we to use as the 'meaningful' line (date)? If this design truly is what I'm suggesting then the designer would also have seen and (hopefully) anticipated this problem and built into the design a means by which we could 'know' which line to use. This is to say that the designer would have encoded the line itself with something very meaningful and, in this regard, I think they did and this is why I now believe the G2 centre to Sphinx is the correct dateline. Consider:

Max culmination 23420 BC - 17820 = 5600
17820 - 10460 BC = 7360

So the ratio of 7360:5600 is where G2 intersects the Precession Timeline (on its way to the Sphinx).

Now Divide 7360 / 5600 = 1.314285714285714

Compare with Pi approximation of 22 / 7 = 3.142857142857143

Thus the line from G2 centre to the Sphinx has 'meaning' encoded at that particular intersect point. The other lines from G1 and G3 to Sphinx have no such meaningful data encoded into the line.

Quote

MA: Could your "inter-quarter lines" serve more as builders instructions/aids, and the implied circle as the "clock"?

SC: It's possible, yes. I hadn't really thought about that so I would need to look into it more. I had only ever thought of the inter-quarter lines as a 'legacy' of the underlying design method.

SC
