Neither are you. It is what it is. Pyramids are fact. Your circle mumbo jumbo faith-based belief fantasy isn't. Neat, inclusive but not supported by any real evidence jsut hopefulness on the authors' part to make money.

So we can expand that to include all cultures as Geometry obsessed? I can't believe anything gets done today with so many "geometrical" obsessions layed out in this world. Look at all the geometrical obsession all over New York City for one example.

For what purpose? Is that AE cultural evidence to support your fantasy? You have this backwards Scott. It is for you to find the evidence to prove your fantasy right.

Why? Let me lay 3,4,10,etc. geometrical squares on the floor in a determined layout(i.e. facing cardinal directions without any blocking the others) and let Don and Ogy and the other pattern-finders NOT find a few dozen patterns with some mathematical, suggestive meaning.
Finding one doesn't mean it is the truth. Afterall a single state lottery(18million to 1) or multiple state lottery(as high as 120million to 1) would take you many lifetimes to go thru every combo yet it seems people still win those lotteries. Your throwing out of high odds doesn't mean squat.

Connect all four you say? Like you did with the Giza three and the sphinx? Or did you mean to say encircle them?

yep. And a 3 year old child can draw a circle in the sand but it doesn't mean they know Pi. Same with your circle drawings.
Cute circles, doesn't mean squat with regards to real proof and AE culture.
Fictional, money making fantasy books congrats. Proof? no way, not even close.
