Menkaure's Pyramid was named 'Menkaure is Divine'. Smaller than his predecessors' pyramids at Giza, it has a base area of 102.2 x 104.6m (335 x 343 ft). - Lehner, Dr Mark, 'The Complete Pyramids', p.134 ... [/i]
a rectangle of 102.2 x 104.6 and yielding an angle of 44.335 degrees and 45.665 degrees can line up with an pyramid (G1) with enclosed angles of:
439.91 / 440 or 44.994 and 45.006
Half a degree over over 2000 cubits would result in a huge error at either end.
So the question to the floor is how can this be ? You can't have diagonals, squares and rectangles and expect them to line up too.
EDIT: Added - squares and rectangles and expect them to line up too.
