almost 100% agree but if you use Berriman's measures this works out exactly. 0.3704 is not quite right. 14.58 is not quite right and 20.62 is not quite right. It all has to be exact and the royal cubit is 20.625 inches as 14.58333r x 99/70.
this is 20 digits(one remen) as 14.58333r the digit is 0.7291666r x 54 is the metre = 39.375, this is the one used by Magisterchessmut.This is the one that was used by the designers not the French one.
This can be converted into centimetres because if 39.375 is 100 centimetres then 14.58333r is 37.037037037r or 0.370370r against your 0.3704.
So your figures can be adjusted
The cubit is 37.037037r x 99/70 = 52.38095238 not 52.38 centimetres
52.38095238 x 7 =146.666r exactly the eclipse unit.
37.037037 is the remen
111120 metres / 0.3704 x 0.37037037 = 111111.111r metres
everything is worked out exactly to Berriman who starts with 14.58 as his remen but alters it for his Egyptian remen.
I am not making this up it is directly from his book.
Berriman suggests that the relationship between the circle and inscribed square length are 9 to 10 being 1.11111r
He has the metre as 39.375 and the cubit as 20.625. Root 2 as 99/70.
He has the Egyptians using 1.296296296r being 35/27 x 20 x 1000 x 99/70 = 36666.666r.
the first line in his book
'This inquiry reveals the oldest extant weights and measures linked by significant magnitude ratios to those current in historical times, and suggests that this ancient metrology was geodetic in origin.
So what you are doing without realising is repeating Berriman's calculations to support his argument without quite getting them to agree his.
Berriman was an Oxford professor and had access to the Oxford library and his studies were his private work.
The point i am trying to make here is that until we all realise whose analysis we are using or almost using correctly the same theories will appear with different calculations over and over again.
This was happening over 10 years ago on this very website, nothing has changed.
Michell and Neal use Berriman's figures but Neal gives him scant credit and actually says his findings are almost miraculous because he got his measures wrong.
111111.1111111111111 x 360 = 40000000 so the french got one bit correct.( Berriman's 10/9 bit.)
The square inside the circle of 40000000 is 36000000. This is Michell's canon.You could also say it is Thom's canon.
As well as being geodetic it is astronomical and geometrical.
