I would like to ask you a more general question.

As you are well aware, there are some very committed researchers here who bring up AE measures in relation to latitude, inches and the modern meter, etc.

I am not nearly so knowledgeable of the nuances of this discussion. As such, it's easy for a person in my position to soon get lost in discussions of remens, palms and various other obscure terms. But I am intrigued by how well the GP and/or Giza correlates to the earth dimensions and, seemingly at present, to the speed of light expressed in meters. What I would like to know, is where the deeper thinkers are looking to in this line of investigation.

I would think that the general attempt involves demonstrating a process of mundane transference, in measures, from the Ancient Egyptians to the modern imperial inch and/or the meter. Is that what you are looking for, Jim? Do you feel that this is what's driving some/most of the researchers in this context? pb
