Hello Jon, Your data are good. It is almost a year ago now that Glen Dash passed away and so in his memory I want to share an e-mail he sent to me when I asked him about this issue. Here is Glen in his own words on August 23, 2019. This e-mail haunts me, because he wrote it a few weeks before he died: QuoteDear Manu, We did not make any attempt to survey G3a in a systematic way.

Thinkitover, I have now reported you to the forum moderators for the third time. Your post is slanderous and I can prove it. I have publicly promoted the poster Engbren's paper on Academia.edu. He received numerous views because of it and thanked me for it. I have given him constructive feed-back on several occasions and this is easy to prove. In addition to slander, you are stalking. I hav

Jacob, which proposal are you referring to? You are responding to a response to gjb's proposal. He has indeed stepped up the game towards a better proof of intent than most have. Tell him what he must do next. If you are referring to the Rhind to 22/7 conversion, I am not disagreeing with you. It is all about intent. I want you to tell me what would it take to convince you specifically above a

Your 875.043 inch figure, which you derive from √π x 432,000 in your proposed premeditated design principle, is composed of the following sum of distances obtained from the filleted chamber: 230.4 inch + 412.143 inch + 232.5 inch. The 232.5 inch figure you got from the 2 inch variation of the K.C. roof above ground level. This is a good model, and I mean that, because it is easy to falsi

I want to clarify something, even if the length misses the perfect ratio by 3 digits does not matter to the model. You simply state your error range. What matters is that one of the three dimensions, 2 cubits/56 digits, is your base to design the length and match it closely to within 3 digits. This still is a valid proposal at intent because the error from perfection is only 2%. And that is how y

gjb, I have been mulling over your proposal. What I like about is that it explains the strange ratio of the coffer foot print. What I did not understand is why you made this more difficult for yourself than you needed. You simply state: The exterior suggest an approximation to φ as 356/220, 1.618181....implying a value for √5 of 2.236 In order to prove awareness, we look to the King Chamber. T

I direct this question to you and Jacob: There is an architectural, numerical bridge which connects the King Chamber and the Grand Gallery. This bridge, if intended, says: "I know that 22/7 is another way of computing (8/9 D)2, and I am going to tell you this without writing it on the walls. I am going to enshrine it." I am not going to play riddles with you. I will tell you what

Yes, correct. The "False Floor" reduces the height of the King Chamber by just about 5 inch to the amount cited by Jim. You guys are all correct, but it may help to use a great graphic by a great explorer. Not to veer off the original poster's query and the, likewise, great post by the first challenger Dr. T, I ask this: How do we distinguish between these two design theories, one

ʿn ḏtj-Anjety The problem I see with Foremost of the Westerners as an identification of an Osiris before the Old Kingdom is a) It is an epithet, not a name, hence ambiguity remains. There is merger possible at the Temple of Osiris in Abydos, but I am not aware of any secure reference which makes the case before the O.K. b) Odds are better it referred to a jackal numen of vanguards and royal

I do not have the time to give it proper attention right now, Madeleine because I am in the final stage of publication myself. However I understand the following: You think there were inflections and word contractions, not just lining up sound signs and words like pearls on a string. You decided to abandon homophony and polyphony. In principle, this means you apply a more stringent standar

I am trying to recapitulate your process to see, if there is something here — I do not yet see adequate proof of the lexical connection you are proposing though there may be another one which links Sumerian/Akkadian and the Greek rendition of wsjr — but I cannot do that unless I first understand your method. Let's use the example, you just gave. This, I presume, is the transliteration of line

This is the False Door of Jntj which shows how the name of the God, whose much later Greek name became Osiris, was spelled in Hieroglyphic. You can see it on each inner jamb near the top. The phonetic values of the two symbols in Hieroglyphic are st-jr. There is no US, OS, JS, or UŠ. Of course, I am not the first to point out the problem.

Can you give your audience some guidance why it should go with your theory as to the height of the Zalweski Triangles and not this one? Which criteria would you use to decide it? Why are there four triangles, one on each side, if Saturn can only be seen along the ecliptic? How did ancient observers know which is Saturn? Heliacal Rising Sirius, Giza, summer 2566 B.C.

Hello Engbren, before proceeding, I recommend you check a notoriously Jasonesque (he keeps coming back) issue with the Great pyramid survey. The 18th course, the top of it, resides at a height of 668 inch as per Petrie (see Plate 8) or otherwise presented as 16.97 m as per Maragioglio and Rinaldi; in cubits, 32.4, or better 32c2p3f. This is where the Entry passage's floor lip is created at th

Yes, Jim. I've been looking at this for two years when I have nothing else to do. Here is the bigger picture. You should look into it since the current paradigm says no master plan. That's always an invitation, is it not? Edit: The 108 m is tectonic drift north component over 4500 years.
