Petrie gives an average of 755.75 feet and this can be used with a high level of confidence.
This gives 3023 for the peimeter.
I have devised a model based on the canon of ancient measure that will produce a cubit of variable length dependent on inputs.
1 360 360 0.068181818 14.66666667 0.083333333 0.027777778
first cell input variable cell 1 is 1
then x 360 fixed cell 2 is always 360
cell 3 is 1 x 2
cell 4 is cell 3 /5260
cell 5 is cell 1 / cell 4
cell 6 is cell 1 /12
cell 7 is 6 divided by 3
If 366.666r is put into cell 1
366.6666667 360 132000 25 14.66666667 30.55555556 10.18518519
cell 5 will always be 14.666r in the model
cell 4 is the variable cubit
Putting 302.3 into cell 1 gives
302.3 360 108828 20.61136364 14.66666667 25.19166667 8.397222222
cell 4 the cubit is 60.61136364 this is the Hugh Franklin Cubit.
Putting 302.4 into cell 1 gives
302.4 360 108864 20.61818182 14.66666667 25.2 8.4
the outpouts are all recognisable in particular 25.2 / 7 = 3.6
the ratio between the input in cell 1 / 4 will always be 14.666r.
This suggests the use of the imperial system and pi as 22/7 as used at Stonehenge.14.666/22*7 = 4.666r difference 10.
However the relationship between the height and the base will always be real Pi because Hugh's design is a Pi pyramid using exact Pi.
The argument is what does Petrie's measurement tell us as it is the only certainty in all the evidence.
We don't know what the height is unless it can be accepted that the Egyptians wanted to create a Pi Pyramid.
The reason franklin's evidenvce is so powerful is because he uses two universal constants in his calculations and they produce the two astronomical units I have identified at SH.
The universal constants are Pi and Hermite's constant and the two astronomical units are 14.666r the eclipse unit and also 15.84 the Venus unit.
These cannot be traced back to the Rhind papyrus but they can be traced back to Plimpton 322 so if the Babylonians helped design the GP then we are in with a shout. The Plimton 322 calcs are under wraps, Bill Wilkinson has them.
The calcs are all floaing point fractions.
