The Aztec Sun Stone

[en.wikipedia.org]

"The stone is 358 centimetres (11.75 ft) in diameter and 98 centimetres (3.22 ft) thick"
11.75 / 3.22 = 3.649068323

I really shouldn't just go around accepting data from Wikipedia without a pedigree, but this worked out well and I have a second, more academic dataset that I think is generally similar.

What I've done here is use two different but very similar figures for thickness in reciprocal form, I think it not only makes it easier to illustrate this to use the reciprocals, I think it actually works better and I don't know of a rule against that, nor selecting two similar but different figures for the thickness given the circumstances and the results.

The first thing I think I ever did with this was multiply the circumference by Pi: 11.77245771 x Pi = 3.698426666, half the Squared Munck Megalithic Yard. I thought it was remarkable that these (with the whole Munck Meg Yard instead) were the first two numbers to be "discovered" in the door measures at Tikal (Temple II), the presence of the Squared Munck Megalithic Yard of (2.719715671^2) = 7.396853331 having been pointed out by Munck himself.

Next, I divided diameter by thickness to find

11.77245771 / 3.227486122 = 364.7562611 or
11.77245771 / 3.225153443 = 365.0200808

And figured I might just be onto something related to calendars.

This was an absolute turning point early on in my more recent Mesoamerican studies the past several years. I finally thought I might be on the right track with all this stuff about calendars.

Sun Stone Equations

Radius 1.873644837 ft - Diameter 3.747289674 ft - Circumference 11.77245771 ft - Thickness 1 = 32.27486122 = (1 / sqrt 960) = 1 / 30.98386677 ft - Thickness 2 = 3.225153443 = (1 / (Pi^3)) = (1 / 31.00627668) ft

(187.3644837 = 2 / 1.067438159)

11.77245771 x Pi^3 = 365.0200808 Earth Year A
11.77245771 / Pi^3 = 37967.98252 = Venus Cycle A = 18983.99126 x 2
11.77245771 x (sqrt 960) = 364.7562612 = Earth Year B
11.77245771 / (sqrt 960) = 37995.55388 = Venus Cycle B = 18997.72194 x 2
3.747289674 / 360 = 1.040913798 = "104" = "260" / 4 = Morton "Great Pyramid Apex Displacement Ratio"
3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^1) = 11.77245771 x 2
3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^2) = 7.396853331 x 2
3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^3) = sqrt 8640
3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^4) = 584.0231292 Venus Synodic Period
series continues to 3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^7) = 1448.692943
(3.747289674 x ((2 Pi)^8) = 364.096284 = 819.2165593 x 225)
224.8373803 x 1.177245771 x sqrt 960 = 820.1084222 = "819" = 364.07562611 x 224.8373803
224.8373803 x 1.177245771 x (Pi^3) = 820.7015876 = "819" = 365.0200808 x 224.8373803
10313.24031 / 1.177245771 = 8760.48194 = (Pi^3) / 353.9334578 = Lunar Year
3.747289674 x 6 = 224.8373804 - Venus Orbital Period A
6 / 3.747289674 = 16.01157243 = 584.0321291 / 364.07562611 - Venus Synodic Period / Earth Year B
11.77245771 x Pi = 3.698426666 = 7.396853331 / 2 (1/2 Squared Munck Megalithic Yard)
(3.698426666 / 2) x (2 Pi)^2) = 73.00401620 = "73" = 292.0160646 / 4
(3.698426666 / 2) x (2 Pi)^4) = 2882.083038

There's probably more math left in it but I thought that was a pretty good start for being based on only two pieces of data, with just a little help from the basic circular math that is seemingly taught by the pyramids of Giza.

Here is a little bonus I just learned today about the Sun Stone

187.3644837 x 3.747289674 = 70.21089950 = 1 / 1.424280286

1.424280287: The Story Of A Number So Far
[grahamhancock.com]

On Tikal's Temple Doors
[grahamhancock.com]

"...This second height for the door of Temple II also gives us another set of interactions between door width and door height

Temple II: Width 7.396853331, Height (2) 9.491995631, Ratio 9.491995631 / 7.396853331 = 1.283247782, Product 9.491995631 x 7.396853331 = 70.21089950...

The most compelling thing here may be what we get if we look at the reciprocal of 70.21089945. Let's go back to this one a minute

Temple III: Width 12.98787880 ft, Height 10.96622711 ft, Width / Height = 1.184352528, Width x Height = 142.4280364

1 / 70.21089945 = 1.424280287."
