Hello Dune,

At the risk of stating the expletive-deleted obvious: overhanging ceiling beams are an absolute necessity; inserting a floor between a room’s walls is a matter of choice.

Hardly ‘new’ as the walls and floor were first measured in detail by Piazzi Smyth in 1865 - 150 years ago.

And that of many others.

The Pyramid Inch is equivalent to 1.001 British Inches and was created – invented, if preferred - by Sir John Herschel [1792-1871], and has roots in earlier works by John Greaves, Sir Isaac Newton and John Taylor.
This unit of measurement and its companion the so-called ‘Sacred Cubit’ of 25.025 British Inches simply did not exist in Ancient Egypt – or anywhere else.

A unit of measurement not used in Ancient Egypt.

An idea that, rather disconcertingly I feel, leaves the door wide open to a veritable host of ludicrous maths-based hypotheses about the Great Pyramid.

So many questions.
So few answers - and not one of them mine.
