Just that the height of G1 is 280 cubits -- with sides of 440, thus a perimeter of 1760; which: 1760 / 280 = 2 pi = radians in a complete circle (which is a saner, smarter, nicer, faster, more reasonable yardstick to use on them; any circles, any angles) -- shows they either knew pi intimately, or were the luckiest stone age citizens many times over, and double that lucky as simultaneously dense enough to not notice it ever, but I don't think anyone is really trying to say that about them. It's the dimensions of the Earth, for Pete's sake. They were smart.

Creating four NSEW faces that are perfect equilateral triangles, literally squaring the circle in the form of a perfect pyramid, is a shortcut exhibition of pi, and its relatives, in a way that the whole Giza plan is a tribute / intro to Sacred Geometry (were it even just a tabletop size scale model), demonstrating the way these several Interesting Numbers just happen to dance and interact with each other, naturally: especially pi, phi, and the roots of 2, 3, and 5. The lucky numbers 7 and 11 get a special treatment, entirely different, obviously as low primes. What else can we learn, all about stone walls first?

As an artist and budding geometer, were such schools real, I would expect to have to turn a plan like this in, as a midterm project, proving I understood these elementary relationships and could design creatively under such parameters. It's a Rosetta Stone, or decoder ring, and probably points to the owners of that acreage when it was built, with some perhaps signature; checking... (oh wait, a linguistic professor says math is dumb, and astronomy is for the birds. Lame. Ah, well.)

Any ruins whose layout is exemplary of a particular method, when that method is ignored so that no further inquiry go un-dismissed, spins in its grave for being ever misunderstood, its secrets trapped behind stone walls?

Since it's all BS, I guess I'll read ahead anyways... Teotihuacan, Puma Punku... probably all the same nonsense, looks like the same pattern... is there a class on sarcasm we all should take first, though? Mythology. Which god wonders why he has to keep explaining his jokes?
