It wasn't a hot, parched landscape back in its day, though. Climate changed just a couple of thousand years before Menes, and held on for a while after before Menes came along. The feature above the entrance to Khufu's pyramid offers what was there before the pyramid was built...a couple of mounds that were quite important to the entire centre of what the Giza complex offers with its Sphinx and S

Hi Lee Don't worry too much about where Warwick is coming from, nor his statements. He will spin things his way, and offer that what academics say is not what he says, and he doesn't like sea level as something to measure from. Warwick has his own interpretation of things that are, as he says, quite alternative to what alternative Egyptology offers. These are his own words in this topic. Yo

You just gotta keep going, Steve. Pull those things together into one homogeneous whole and see what the picture looks like.

Hi Sam There is another way of interpreting what you offer...the Milky Way Galaxy viewed when it is upright from the horizon. You end up with a celestial river crossing from the southern hemisphere to the northern, from below the horizon to above, and Orion and all his pals spread out in such a view which seemingly correspond to the Nile River and particular stars here and there. You can get t

Hi Jim You know, by laying out any area of ground for the accuracy of any kind of land or sky survey to be accepted, the level of the ground needs first to be determined. While there may be many places that can be considered level over long distances, water surface is the best and most level there is. And then there is a dry lake bed as next best thing. The Faiyum Basin would have enough in

Hi Steve The main point was using geodesic lines and Google Earth as a reference for HASL if you know where one point actually confirms HASL. Colour coding and such aids in what you identify for the landscape, so any depressions indicating water courses leading somewhere cannot be disputed, as you're offering in your observations. For some folk, being off by even a few centimeters is the ba

Hi Steve As far as I know, pretty much all surveys carried out over the years have the south east corner of G1 at some 10cm or less under 60m above sea level. As they all kind of agree - some might have 59.94m ASL, others 59.97m, and still others 59.95m - you can't really go wrong with 59.96m ASL. THat SE corner is the tricky thing though...do all surveys identify the same mark upon which to p

Hi Dennis I didn't check the clip-link but just had a look at Stellarium and Google Earth to see what's what. 2026...Regulus, Canopus and Fomalhaut all appear just above the horizon at the same time, especially when Regulus rises. It rises at 76o 18' 07.9", and sets 283o 41' 52.6". In GE, set is about 1/4 way up the north-east edge of Khafre's pyramid from the pov of the Sphinx he

Hmm...well, the extents I have gone to over the years in playing with a perpetual motion device has had me try different set-ups where I go at it for periods of time and then leave it alone for periods of time. My current model is version 4.14 which is now broken down to its frame and spindle with 3 levels upon the spindle. The frame has 3 levels of magnets upon 4 struts angled inward from base t

Hi Jim Yes, the following goes somewhere for your current topic. “Given .5238 meters, or 20.62 inches, for the length of the royal cubit, the length of the remen is .3704 meters or 14.58 inches. The meridian circumference of the earth is 40,008,000 meters or 111,133 meters per average degree of latitude. 300,000 remen times .3704 equals111,120 meters. 5000 remen equals one minute of latit

Hi RL Of course you accept that the very nature of us is to explore what we are amid our surroundings, and what kinds of interaction can occur between the two. How we go about defining some conclusions depends on how we go about investigating and experimenting with what we can do with particular parts of our surroundings. We all have the capacity to walk which is part of our genetic make-up

Thanks GG. Well, I do like to try pretty much anything to see what happens. I reckon RL might be up for a little more experimentation than he may have previously considered. I'll see what his next post is.

Hi PB Ah, the old 'levitating frog in the donut' trick, hey Chief? Gravity works on the principle of mass of an object affecting localized space-time due to an expression of the accumulation of atoms in the object compacted so tightly together that their overall internal electric and magnetic field is added together and warped beyond the object, creating entwined loops of magnetism that att

So far, all you have been doing is skirting the information presented in my topic, and previous topics actually. You can’t bring yourself to assess the data for what it is and instead point in directions away from the data because you aren’t comfortable with knowing something concrete that you’ve not actually come across before. I would say, by your posts, not just in here and other of my topi

Hmm...Hendershot Generator. Telluric currents would have to be the underlying force involved in that, wouldn't they? Which would make a little sense for Ed's reference to alignment of his device, and possibly position of the person operating said device so person adds to the 'field' rather than detracts. Which loops back to Ed and his 'witching rod'...trying to find the strongest spot where he

Nah, but you sure are welcome to start a thread about Ahket Khufu if you'd like. I would be interested to read what you accept and know being something you promote at the beginning of something instead of responding to folk all the time. You do seem to question folk quite a lot about what they write, except for Marty where you always seem to wholeheartedly agree with his pov. Ha...me and my irrel

Hey? What do you mean 'nonsense about reattaching heads to bodies'? It's in the Westcar Papyrus. Or should we throw that papyrus away as being nonsense. Damn...now you're limiting what we can use. Next you'll have us throwing the pyramid away, and then what will we have? A lot of books written by scholars pertaining to something that doesn't exist...and all my work is a bunch of fiction too.

Hi RL A day to get past the first sentence?...sheesh...no secret offerings needing deciphering there...not until the last paragraph and sentence ;) But why would someone give up profound and civilisation-changing things in very easy-to-obtain descriptions? That would mean folk use ‘power’ willy-nilly and no-one can use it properly. There has to be a learning of knowledge in order to release

This post is an example of where I am coming from with all this fun I have with this stuff. It is divided in two where I offer an observation about the first hour of the Amduat and Book of Gates, and I do have correlating info from the Book of Caverns and some other stuff, but this will do for the now. The second part, starting after the big gap in text, is about the process and reasons behind ho

Quite a whiles back, I was playing with the height of Khufu’s pyramid as coming from a factor of square root 1/3, being the reciprocal of 3. 0.57735027 (rounded) Times 10,000 isn’t a bad height in inches, and if used in conjunction with a proposed height to base ratio of 2/pi, the base-side measure is 9068.9968”, which isn’t bad either. It creates an angle of the sides of apprx. 51.854deg

Well, the important thing is why the AEs had their belief system resulting in sending Pharaoh's 'soul' up to the Celestial Realm to reside with the gods, wasn't it? SO he had their ear so good things descended upon the landscape and the people, unless he could make good things all by himself because his efforts in rejoining with his origin was successful. Now we get to the contentious issue

It is a great tool the 'history' slider...seeing places grown and change. Fascinating watching Chinese aerospace facilities grow. Cheers

(Please excuse the last image in the above post as I didn’t notice Stellarium had shifted a year. It should have been) Showing a larger image of Orion on its back below the horizon 1 hour before sunrise, it appears thus. The noticeable thing is the shapes of the celestial equator and ecliptic lines arcing as they do. If one were so inclined, one could perceive two mounds above groun

Hi Steve Well, considering the angle of the gallery pointing up into the southern sky, we may consider it does point to something. Crux, or The Southern Cross, crosses the southern meridian quite nicely at the altitude of the gallery's aim in Khufu's time...so too in 12,140BCE. Quite the double-up for time periods. And I do believe Mimosa was an important star for whatever reasons. No

Hi RL Interesting...well, Ed was a very interesting guy, and he sure wouldn't want any wise guy easily knowing a grand secret and using it for ill gotten gains, now would he?
