Dr Trogolodyte writes “With specifics to our discussion, I updated the image relating the three (3) Causeways and their modern Gregorian dates. Note that the 18APR date for Khufu’s Causeway has been amended to 21APR/22AUG.

Regarding your query: ”Has anyone checked to see where that orientation might place the origin of the ship….if it arrived across ground from the east!”; in a manner of speaking, the funeral barge transported the King from the east (land of the living) to the west (land of the dead).

It should now be clear that the three (3) Giza Pyramid Causeways align with significant solar phenomena. Khufu’s Causeway is aligned with the midpoint between the June Solstice and the March/September Equinox sunrises, as observed from the threshold of his Pyramid Temple. A lesser known phenomenon of Khufu’s Pyramid is its function as a gnomon. For approximately fifteen (15) seconds, at sunset on the day of the midpoint between the equinoxes and the solstices, a pair of triangular shadows appears on either the north or south face, heralding the event. Below is the occurrence during an April or August event:”


I see that now there are two dates for the Great Pyramid causeway’s solar events. But, as with the first, I still don't see why those dates are of such significance unless they correspond to an annual flood or some such seasonal event. I understand that to find significant dates for the other two causeways is supposed to reinforce the solar theory for the first. It seems that, with the Great Pyramid at 14° or 14.2° north of east, Khafre is now put at 13.3° or 13.5° south of east - so not any precise symmetry(?) - while the Menkaure pyramid has a straight east causeway (which, in my book, rules it out as participant in the solar link theory since that is the most logical direction for any causeway to take in the circumstance.)

Regarding my query, yes, I’m aware of the Egyptian lore concerning the cosmic ship. My own understanding is that it relates to spiritual journeys and to the 'carriage of the sun', the 'solar barge' known in other mythologies but that doesn’t obviate the journeys of the dead – whoever they may be. My question was and still is a more practical one based on the obvious visual impact of the three easterly boat pits, and the conviction that this might be an overlooked message built into the architecture of the place.

Spiros has come up with an intriguing result from the ancient Greek numeral system: showing that ‘one ship’ corresponds to 365. It seems a pity that no-one has a reliable diagram: a straight line from the coordinates of that causeway boat pit that would either confirm or refute the possibility that it leads to a significant place, one that could be linked to the history of Giza. Or perhaps leave us none the wiser!
