Having read Heavens Mirror,

I found it most interesting, there were a great many unanswered questions, but most of them were attempted, by hypothesis or comparisons. There was one aspect that caught my eye, the history of the way the earth, or any sphere for that matter, is divided into 360 degrees.
Is it coincidental, or were the main structures discussed, deliberately built in a way, that there locations are similar distances apart, likening to factors of precession?
Is the origin of this way of measuring spheres unknown or does it have history to speak of?
If it is unknown think of the implications this can have. If there was an ancient civilisation(s) maybe they contrived this method of measuring, and built their monuments accordingly?
Please discuss and reply.
No pointless information or remarks please.
