Hello Mercurial:

Regarding your referenced blog, “9. Sun Worship and Phi”, a quick perusal suggests considerable effort to assemble the information. Two of the images are misidentified; the A. D. White Photograph titled “Giza. Pyramid of Khafre and Sphinx Pyramid and Sphinx [sic]” should read “Khufu” in lieu of “Khafre”, and the second image titled ”Great Pyramid Dimensions is a modified photograph of Kharfe’s Pyramid.

Regarding the first image, I have contacted Cornell University Library DIGITAL COLLECTIONS’ Digital Consulting & Production Services of the published misidentification originating from their website.
