And here are the data I observed last night and this morning from a sample of the Pyramid Texts inside the Pyramid of Unas. The sample are all the words and conjugations from the east gable of the ante-chamber, where we find, for example, the famous Cannibal Hymn, Pyramid Text 273-274. By my count there are a total of 680 words and conjugations on this gable. Words or conjugations that occu

QuoteThe above analysis indicates that Meroitic, despite being undeciphered, statistically behaves like all other human languages with a word frequency distribution exhibiting power law behavior. Though our texts are very short, the original requirement of a ≈ 1 cannot be maintained. If we use the more realistic version of Zipf ́s law, namely the truncation at the right side of th

Hello Hans, I am using a combination of my own photos, the virtual Unas interior on the EES website, the Bollingen/Rambova/Piankoff/Princton images, and I have also looked at Stephen Brabin's excellent Incomplete Pyramids. Here is an example. This is a large png file so you can zoom in to see the annotations I made. It is pain-staking, but the results are incredible.

Looking forward to it, Brendan. Since I posted this, I found one other interesting clue that relates back to the headless bull in the Westcar story. I take it that was your original entry into the project. Text- topographically, the black bull becomes headless on the west gable of the sarcophagus chamber in column 8, as it is ensnared into the Duat, but then Unas ties the head of the bull onto hi

Hello Brendan, I stumbled over something a couple of days ago and remembered your Saturn project. I am currently studying the text-topography inside the pyramid of Unas to see what added information can be distilled. The general architectural lay-out is known, of course. The sarcophagus chamber representing the dw3t/Duat-Netherworld is where the k3 is brought back into the statue-like mummy on

You really ask the quintessential question of all those who balance a design theory on differences of distances less than what can be known with certainty within the four corner zones of uncertainty.

Petrie committed a systematic conversion error using a figure of 196.750 of the arbitrary survey units he used per inch instead of 196.713 a.u./in. This error amounts to artificially shorter distances of about 2 inch per 10,000. The error was discovered and reported by Glen Dash in 2015—in Where, Precisely, are the Three Pyramids of Giza?; see Appendix B—who, by contrast, confirmed that Petrie's

Here are some close-ups I took today of said quarry, most of which is under sand. It is located on the south side of the causeway near its terminus at the pyramid temple. Debehen's rock-cut tomb is a short walk to the west. Note the ramp remnant immediately above the top ledge and its continuation eastward.This direction would therefore be at a right angle to the other ramp structure further up t
