AS: "...the 9 pyramids in the above image are all lined up along the strike lines of stratigraphy of a hard limestone unit and the Sphinx is where it is because of an isolated hard limestone outcrop..."
SC: And keeping the sides of the pyramids aligned with the cardinal directions meant they had to be placed along the diagonal of the strike. Indeed, the Sphinx is where it is because of an isolated limestone outcrop which just happened to be close to a plateau with a 43* strike which would have ideally suited the diagonal of the Giza-Orion plan. This plateau really was perfect in every way for the needs of the builders to implement their plan. Thanks for highlighting this for us.
Now, if you consider the image posted in the previous post is simply the result of chance, then try this little experiment:
Take 4 coins and throw them randomly to the floor. Now try and connect all four coins in a perfect circle with a piece of string. You will find it incredibly difficult. Now, even if you finally succeed, then take a fifth coin and throw it randomly to the floor to see if it falls almost precisely in the centre of your circle. If you fail, start all over again.
You will be trying to do that, Archae, for a very, very long time indeed. And yet, low and behold, it is precisely what is presented to us at Giza.
