MA: You don't attach any special significance to this middle point anymore - after you found the G2-Sphinx line?
SC: Originally I merely took a line from the Sphinx due west until it met the Precession Timeline and worked out the date (3980 BC). It was actually Don Barone who measured this point and found that it split the Precession Timeline perfectly in two. I think it is intriguing - a 'flag' to draw our attention to this relationship between the Sphinx and the 2 Belt culminations. I do remember having a discussion a number of years ago when it was pointed out to me that it would have been a quite extraordinary coincidence that the 'significant date' just happened to fall precisely upon the mid-point of the Precession Timeline. I think that was a fair criticism in using that particular line. Perhaps this division of the Precession Timeline into two equal parts was carried forward in the mythology of the AEs as 'Horus of the two horizons'. Speculation, of course.
MA: I see your point. But I am not sure what to make of it.
To me it seems to be unnecessary convoluted. If the builders wanted to convey a message/date, surely they would have done so in a way that ensured that they didn't fail miserably for thousands and thousands of years - until you decided to look at ratios.
To decide what is meaningful and what is coincidence is a challenge here.
SC: It most certainly is a challenge to find the 'correct' line to use (as my efforts of the years can testify) without anything meaningful associated with a particular line. That we find the pi approximation 'encoded' into the G2-centre to Sphinx line helps us to select the correct 'timeline'. And it makes perfect sense, given the other possible lines that could have been selected, that the designers would find a way to 'encode' the true line in some way.
MA: I would like to expand on my thoughts on the implied circle as the "clock" but it is getting late so I will have to save that for later.
I look forward to reading anything you come up with.
EDIT to ADD: Incidentally, if we continue forward in time along the Precession Timeline from 17,820 to 10,460 BC and then a precessional pendulum turn of a further 7,360 years we find the new date of the intersection point is 3,100 BC, the time we are told saw the unification of ancient Egypt.
