Hello Avry,

Yes I'm well, thanks.

And yes - a couple of comments.

First of all I see you have resorted to satellite images when I had asked you to use an (accurate) plan drawing (of your choice). You seemed to have ignored all the usual caveats (atmospheric distortion, geometric distortion etc) when using satellite imagery in this way. Your satellite image is clearly not directly overhead thus obliging you to find each pyramid centre by placing a square/rectangle around each pyramid's perimeter where, once again, error can be introduced by not finding the exact baseline of the pyramid (difficult to do in satellite imagery). So, I'll pass on your 'findings'.

What I will do, however, is give the final word on this to Dr Lehner, who tells us:

Quote

"A great SW-NE diagonal cuts the diagonal of Menkaure's first queen's pyramid, touches the SE corner of his pyramid, cuts the diagonal of his Mortuary Temple, passes the SE corner of the Khafre Pyramid court, cuts the diagonal of the fore-temple of Khafre's Mortuary Temple, touches the SE corner of Khufu's Pyramid, very nearly cuts the diagonal of his first queen's pyramid and ends in a large block of masonry built into the escarpment." Lehner, M. (1985), A Contextual Approach to the Giza Pyramids, Archiv für Orientforschung 31: 136-158. §2:1, 143 (PDF 9)


"These alignments are out by just about the amount that we would expect from methods of sighting and measuring using long cords across a kilometre of sloping plateau." - Lehner, M., TCP, p.106

The intent of the builders, however, is perfectly clear and demonstrates a clear homogeneous plan for these pyramids (and the Sphinx). The underlying 'design template' for this was Orion's Belt. The Lehner-Goedicke line and my 2 inter-quarter lines are but a 'legacy' of this underlying design.

IMO.
