I forgot to mention, that previous Egyptian Ft. was the old Metric value, but in all fairness to Michell and Neal, it's Canonical value was fixed at their findings of 12 x 48/49 = 11.75510204 ins.x 7/4 = the fundamental RC unit. 144/7 ins. as 20.57142857. This is because the differential of values between this figure and the old Metric was used to hybridize the Volumetric Cubit of 8820 cu.ins. Which cube rt. was less than 300mm. at 524.796319 mm. using the Modern Meter value. It really is no wonder about all the confusion arising when mixing modern units involved, whether that be English or Metric. But the English units are closer to the original standard than all the rest. Just not in ways Stecchini could begin to imagine years ago, when he wrote his essay concerning them.
Now that I understand some of the machinations of cubit design and the base 100 system some explanations for other metrologists findings stand out.
144/7 as a cubit is very obvious in respect of its geodetic calculation against the 25000 base 100 upper limit of the GP design
144/7 x 1200 = 24685.71429
25000 - 24685.71429 = 314.2857143 miles as 100 pi miles
144/7 x 1200 is 172800/7 cue Michell and Neal
