For serious discussion of the controversies, approaches and enigmas surrounding the origins and development of the human species and of human civilization. (NB: for more ‘out there’ posts we point you in the direction of the ‘Paranormal & Supernatural’ Message Board).
Over the years we have often tried to figure out why did the builders choose 440. Now married within all my previous work I think I have found the answer.

In my previous work I have suggested that if 440 cubits were the distance to Mercury or 57,909,050 kilometers then the distance to Earth would have to be 149,598,261 / 57,909,050 or 2.583333333. So Earth would have to be 440 x 2.583333 or 1136.667 cubits. But where did this 1136.667 come from ?

I have also suggested that 440 represents the square root of 3 or 1.73205 while G2 or 411.04 represents Phi or 1.618034 checking almost exactly to what we have.

440 / 411.04 = 1.07045543

1.73205 / 1.618034 = 1.07046627

accuracy 0.999989

But back to why 440 well I found it in a most ingenious fashion. I had been trying to find certain ratios in the planets and stumbled onto this which surely has to be so far beyond coincidence as to make calling it a coincidence almost embarrassing.

The formula:

(Phi² + 1) x Pi = 3.618034 x 3.14159265 = 11.3664 x 100 = 1136.64

So ratio of Mercury to Earth is 2.58333333 so 1136.64 / 2.5833333 = 439.989 or to put it another way the ratio between Mercury and the Earth in semi major axis' is [(Phi² + 1) x Pi] x 100 / 440

Now has anyone seen this formula before for the ratio ?

or this which is a bit easier to remember ... 31 / 12 = 2.583333

So ....

[(Phi² + 1) x Pi] x 100 / 440 = 31 / 12 :o)

Well now what do you think about that ? :o)

And how about 11.366666 x 44 = 500.13

and how about 11.3666666 x 22 = 250.06

oh and 28 x 11.3664 well it equals 318.2592 and 1/318.2592 x 1000 = 3.142093 and divide by Pi and we get accuracy of 0.9998 (what else did we expect ?)
