I would say neither is outside to convey intention. However, I very carefully tender this with context of the relevance of the match points. Without context, it is just measuring 3 points to 3 points, an act of which in and of itself doesn't prove the level of intent.

In both cases, the counterpoint of 'necessary' accuracy is completely removed by the idea of naked-eye observation of the Belt Stars, i.e. translating it from eye to paper, then expanding it to the size of the Giza plateau, which, mind you, is no flat pancake. :) In other words, if it isn't perfect to 1 foot, there is good reason why that might be.

However ...

The accuracy alone is not the benchmark on which to build an argument of intent. Context matters to the nth degree, and Rob has his ideas, I have mine. Nonetheless, neither of us (or anyone with any theory) is any closer to what really happened unless something substantive is dug up from the time, i.e. the original blueprints.

Best,
Avry
