Did the architects of Khufu's pyramid know about the shape of the Earth? Geocentric latitude is the angular distance between a point on the Earth's surface and the equator, using the center of the Earth as the vertex. It differs from geodetic latitude in that it accounts for the ellipsoidal shape of the Earth rather than considering it as a perfect sphere. Compare geodetic latitude.

Hello engbren, >>1. Sopdet is Sah’s consort and we have already tied Sah to Reusre; >>2. In one of the scenes, Reusre is outside Ruddjedet house standing with his kilt upside down. I think this is a reference to looking to the north or possibly laying down and looking straight up; QuoteReusre => powerful Ra Laying down and looking straight up => exactly. The sun is risi

From another source: The Orientations of the Giza pyramids and associated structures Erin Nell and Clive Ruggles QuoteThe alignment of the causeways of Khufu and Khafre, although not that of Menkaure, differ greatly from all other monuments on the Giza Plateau, and may offer some useful insights as a result. Khafre’s causeway, as already discussed, is oriented with a DFC of between +13°

How about this: Lake - water = Akhet(flooding) folded 24 cubits = whole duration of Akhet = 4 months but the lake originally was at 12 cubits(half full) = 2 months The exact date thus is between the end of II Akhet(II Akhet 30) and the start of III Akhet (III Akhet 1). If you use this for the time of Sneferu you would have a date between August 4 and August 5. To observe

If one looks at the Hellenic mythology, he will see that the feminine goddess Gaia corresponds to the masculine god Geb. On the other hand the masculine god Uranus corresponds to the feminine goddess Nut. The god, apart from Enceladus, that is associated with the shaking of the Earth is Poseidon. But in the Phaistos disk I read: "Zeus shaking earth. ". Maybe Zeus, Dias, at early times,

Hello engbren, I don't know if we could relate planet Mercury as Sebeg with a certain Egyptian god. Budge relates him to Seth. His Hellenic equivalent Hermes probably relates him to Thoth. The surface of the Moon looks pretty much like that of Mercury they are barren so they relate to the desert god Seth. It is a shame that 2 stories have missing parts and we cannot extract astronomic informa

Hello Ray, The Proto Siniatic writing system can be regarded pre-Phoenician, which can be regarded pre-Hebrew. The Phoenician system consisted of 22 letters but there is no indication that the Proto Siniatic system consisted of so many letters. But the evidence is very scant so we cant be sure yet. Best regards Spiros

Hello engbren, I think the 14 number refers to the number of chromosomes in specific grains or legumes. These are Einkorn wheat, barley, rye, peas, and lentils. If you look into the 20 number you see kannabis, corn, and cocoa. The 12 number leads you to the forbidden Pythagorean food: broad beans Did the Pythagoreans avoid eating broad beans because of the affects to people suffering

Hello engbren, How is Geb connected to Cronus? Since Geb is the Earth he cannot represent a celestial body. Ducks and geese probably symbolize the Earth - Geb. Its possible though that ducks and geese represent the Egyptian bird constellation, thus their decapitation corresponds to the time that Sah - Orion sets. Best regards Spiros

Hello engbren, I am sticking to the idea that Sahure being close to Re represents Mercury. The spiritual body might relate to lightness and Mercury is a small celestial body. On the other hand I don't know how it can relate to Orion - Sah. Another explanation regarding the kicking apart from the retrograde motion is the fact that being light it is more susceptible to gravitational forces espec

Well I expressed my opinion. If you have a better explanation why don't you come out with it. You can start with the total isopsephy value of the Manetho 8 IV dynasty pharaohs. This is the exact spelling used in his book. Is it incorrect? Am I fudging something? Is Menetho a pseudo-magico-mathematician? Please explain. I am all ears.

So what you are interested in is theories that are very popular. Popular = correct. So you are not an ortho after all. You might simply be working under cover.

If this is the case then Suphis showing up 2 times instead of referring to the Khufu and Khafre pyramids it could possibly encode the Menkaure pyramid and the Khentkaus I tomb.

I think there is something weird going on. It seems that Sen Khwfw makes sense. Is there really a mysterious brother of Khufu? Also, if I was looking at the geographic data I would chose to equate Menkaure and Khafre with Suphis. So are we sure the King's lists are not all mixed up? Do we really know what they mean? What if Khufu is not Suphis? See also here:

What do you mean by syllabic alphabet? A syllable consists of a consonant and a vowel. There were no vowels in Semitic writing systems like the ancient Egyptian. The first syllabic alphabet was invented by the Hellens(Greeks). Syllabic writing systems were older. Take for example Sumerian cuneiform. But this system was strange because it did not comply to the simple rule of using c+v. Sometimes t

Hello engbren, QuoteAccording to Wikipedia Khufu’s full name was Khnum Khufu, which broadly translates as “Khnum protects me”. Khnum of Wiki and Knemu of Budge are the same deity. This makes me wonder if we should be connecting the QEBH form of Khnum to Lord of Sakhbu to the conjunction of the sun and the moon. Ie we are looking for a new moon on the 15th day of Peret.

In the Westcar Papyrus, the Story of Khufu and the magician and the Story of the birth of the three pharaohs are actually one story which is associated with Khufu. Let's take all numbers that show up - one time each noting units of measure, and multiply them. I will divide the outcome by 365.242 twice so as to convert days to years. The final outcome will only contain units: year and cubit.
