Just when is a solar day 86400 seconds long. A load of nonsense based on a load of nonsense.

Unless if I don't comprehend the question, that would be every day, of which the Globe rotates 360 degrees around its axis - therefore, 24 hours -- 1440 minutes -- comprises that number of seconds

24 x60 x60 = __________ If you have another result I would be interested to know more. I tend to agree however... these chaps rather lay it on quite generously with quantity of numbers & figures, which unaccompanied by explanation is a formidable #WTF?! riddle - thank goodness they are not dependent on papyrus for producing such :o) can you imagine the quantity that priests would have consumed in somewhat under a hundred years of pyramid construction. Everyone is raving about the Great Pyramid, rightfully so, however they are 21stCentury SpaceAge generation with scientific calculating machines and have the benefit of the Internet... Imagine the fella's back then -- on a hangover Monday -- throwing the Bent :-) Pyramid together...

Any self respecting draughtsman and building contractor alike, would require familiarity with a scale ruler -- calibrated by units that pan out 1:1 with a meaningful reality. That way they can draw the necessarily scaled papyrus plans (great number of them - unless software and storage devices compatible with electronic hardware tablets were used) from which craftsmen can construct component material for building, in compliance with requirements of the engineers. Many copies of the already numerous original technical drawings and building plans, upon which great many instructions are dependent, would therefore also be required by the site foremen overseeing the builders.

The all important tool in their equipment is a 'tape measure', of which numerous are required - a length of rope will have rudimentary and limited use, as will the priest's walking stick. It is a precision project of the highest order. Were they to be piled together, the crunched numbers by contemporary mathematicians will compete with the bulk of the pyramids themselves - among which, some fine talent resides here at GHMB and fortunately are also knowledgeable in variety of systems from the past to present, which is of great aid in research and study of mysterious monumental achievement in antiquity.

What's needed is the workable scale instrument / method that simply represents a single unit which equates to : a specified quantity that (in corresponding numbers) is measurable in reality - such being a reproduction of an object from a plan, the final product, or anything we come across... in the Cosmos. Typically, in my own experience with the scale rule 1:10 - 1:20 - 1:25 - 1:33&1/3 - 1:50 - 1:75 - 1:100 - 1:125 - 1:1000 - 1:50,000 if it is a topographical map, or whatever the legend states for any other, including a model Globe that represents Earth. The figure on the right 0:00 has to be practically implementable to the real object, which is comprised of 1:1 what you see/measure is what it is. The (retractable/reel tape measure/wheel... is calibrated to be compatible with the figure on the left 0:00 Every detail, on the entire site of Giza, as well as further afield across 80km of Memphis is compliant to such.
