I wanted to put forth some thoughts on time, distance, and the circle with its degrees. Just a run of a group of observations, really.

A good approximation for the equatorial circumference of Earth is 40,075.017 kms; for the polar circumference, 40.007.86 kms. As nautical miles, they are 21,638.778 nm, and 21,602.516 nm.
This gives a rotation speed of 1669.79 kms per hour, or approx. 0.250449 nm per second at the equator. As inches, this equates to approx. 9,130” per half-second of rotation. This appears to be an excellent length between the sockets of the east side of G1 which is 9,130.8” according to Petrie, while the north side is 9129.8”. The south is 9,123.9” and west is 9.119.2”. If we divided our 24 hours into the polar circumference as we did the equatorial, we'd have 9,115”.

As degrees, minutes and seconds of a circle, 1 arc second of angle of Earth = approx. 1,217” at the equator, and looking at the socket level measurement, we can see that 7.5 of these seconds is the intended ratio, so the pyramid's perimeter shows 30 arc seconds of a degree, or 0.5 arc minutes.
Equitably, a circle has 21,600 minutes in it; 1/43,200th part may be observed as the pyramid. The length of a day has 86,400 seconds in it, with the pyramid having a 1/43,200th part of it. The pyramid also takes up a 1/43,200th part of the equatorial circumference of Earth.
Time, distance and angle are observed here.

If we get the average size of the King's Chamber of the pyramid, we find 412.29 x 206.2 for the floor space, while the wall height can be taken to either the base or to the floor level; there is a difference of a few inches. One measurement for the wall is 235.25” high.
The surface area of the chamber is then approx. 461,028sqin. The volume is approx. 19,999,590cubein. At these figures, the ratio is 1:43.38. At the floor level, the ratio becomes 1:43.02. It is possible a ratio of 1:43.2 existed.

That these different ratings have the same greater scales involved - 43,200 – then it cannot be other than these ratings being known for what they are, in their sizes of 24 hours, 360 degrees, and Earth's equatorial circumference as a measurement. We are aware that ancient Egyptians, Sumerians and Babylonians used the base 60 number system, although agreement on the reason why has not been found. It is possible that the degrees came about due to segmenting a circle into equal areas until no more lines could fit between those placed.

It is possible to place these lines according to several patterns in dividing the circle into equal segments, where 256, 400, and other figures are obtained instead of 360, and no doubt these were tested but due to its divisors, 360 was a versatile figure. Depending on the size of the circle, each degree can be divided further down into 60 minutes, and it is possible that other amounts were tried before the acceptance of 60 parts; and if a large enough circle then each minute can be divided down into seconds for which other amounts besides 60 could have been tried before 60 was accepted. No matter the combinations, that 21,600 minutes is used extends to Earth's rotation speed and the length of the day.

The length of 1 second is a timely beat that can be found in a walking pace and a heart beat, either in single time or double time, and extending this beat to the length of a day can assume the rounding out to an even 86,400 timely moments in total. It is a perfect multiple of 21,600, and offers an insight into the degrees and minutes of the circle.

On Earth's surface, the movement of 1 second of time can be determined as a distance of rotation, and 4 seconds of this distance = 1 minute of a degree, the rotation speed. We know one of these measurements as 73,044”; others are 1.8553kms and 1.0018 nautical miles; 1 second of time = 18,261”, a quite manageable measurement that can be broken down into comparable sections, such as 8 lengths of a stone's throw, or ten widths of a ravine. Considering this, if the inch were 2.147cms instead of 2.54cms, there would be 21,600 of them in 1 second of Earth's rotation instead of 18,261.

One certainty in all this is Earth's rotation: 86,400 seconds from noon until noon. Due to the direction of orbit and direction of rotation, Earth actually rotates a little more than 360deg; in fact it rotates for an extra 3 minutes and 56 seconds of time until a location is directly facing the Sun again. Viewing Earth from above the north pole, we would see this rotation as counter-clockwise. G1 is estimated to have just under 4 arc minutes as an orientation offset west of true north, or a counter-clockwise shift, equalling the extra rotation of Earth.

With an actual circle equalling 86,164 seconds of Earth's rotation, this means approx. 9,155.55” per half second for speed, which is quite large compared to the socket level measurements. Accordingly, the focus is on the divisions of a day from noon to noon according to Earth's rotation of approx. 360.98deg. Or another latitude with a lesser latitude circumference dividing out the rotation speed to amounts ranging in the interpreted size of G1s footprint was the origin for these computations.

The significance of the degrees, minutes and seconds can be seen in astronomy, a large enough circle surrounding an observer where alignments can be made not only down to the second but also as parts of a second. 1 horizontal arc-degree takes in a great amount of night sky, and due to the proliferation of stars, a degree can be estimated to include 3600 parts to it – as mentioned above, other amounts would have been tested before this amount adopted – which would enhance star plotting.

Certainly a circle of 21,600 parts is enough for excellent plotting, but the finesse of examining great lengths of time against star position does mean that extraordinary detail can be found when measurements are done with nearly 1.3 million parts to the circle/surrounding view. It allows for the period of equinoctial precession to be estimated at nearly 26,000 years, and our antecedents from various cultures and time periods knew of this length and what occurs during it, based upon how many parts to the circle they had and how they measured the movements of the stars against those parts. Various lengths of precession were believed in due to this, and it follows the transformation of the circle's segments into better ratios so that an estimate of anywhere between 40,000 and 12,000 years mentioned in historical records use an older version of the circle. We must accept that by the time our antecedents were using hours and minutes, they also knew the parts of the circle and the size of Earth; and I have only the structures at Gobekli Tepe to hint at the precision being used for astronomical observations before 3,000BCE.

In some way, it appears that precise details of time, distance and angle were incorporated within the great pyramid of Giza, modelled after Earth's size and actions and related in this instance to the Sun. This possibility has no reference within any records from the ancient Egyptians nor other cultures, unless we include references of time lengths for precession. This area is the key to identifying time, distance and angle as being intimately related, and a very old knowledge.

Does this seem like a plausible line of thinking?
