<<I guess this might be a property of a 5:12 rectangle, though it depends on specific approximations of pi and Phi.>>
This is a function of phi sq x 6/5 = pi.
Since the area of the rectangle is 5 x 12, half the area of the rectangle is 5 x 6, or 30
Since the radius of the circle is 5, then 5 sq is 25 and the area is 25 x pi.
Based on 5 pi = 6 phi sq:
25 pi = 30 phi sq, or
for the full area of the rectangle instead of the half area, the area of the rectangle times phi sq is equal to the area of two of the circles.
<<I tried out the seconds pendulum 'metre' too, just to see if it worked anywhere, but it's just too short. Definitely, the 39.375" metre is a really good fit.>>
If, instead of saying the proposed metric system was based on the most recent, most extensive and most accurate global survey in the history of the world, they had said their proposed metric system was the same as the oldest system of measurement in the history of the world, would the rest of the world, or even the French, have considered adopting it?
One of my webpages about the global alignment of Teotihuacan, Washington DC, Stonehenge, Troy, etc., has to do with the street plan of Washington DC that was designed by Pierre L'enfant. Although the U.S. rejected the metric system, Washington DC, despite the diagonal avenues, is based on a due NS-EW street grid, and a metric grid, with NS lengths of 900 meters, and EW lengths of 1200 meters, defines the locations of the main buildings and monuments and the slopes, angles and distances of the diagonal avenues. Here is the link to my webpage:
And here is the grid image:
The heart of Washington DC is defined by the NS sections 3-6 and the EW sections B-D. This forms a perfect square of 3600 x 3600 meters, or 10,800 x 10,800 Northern feet, with an area of 116,640,000 square Northern feet. I wonder where L'enfant was coming from with that?
