Pertaining obliquity of Earth, the Greek astronomer-mathematicians could have gleaned better insight -- respective Equinox -- from the movement of the SunDisc* on the horizon...

The term 'Blueprint' pertains a design or plan.* Competent metrological skill, certainly, was a foregone requirement for what is on display at Giza, however, to do the geometrical layout justice demands more than collection of measurements that are claimed to 'encode' whatsoever and moreover lack contextual elucidation. Plan proposals ought to consider differentiation between functional as

My talk in parables refer to virtually every single distance measurement producing 'a Moon consumerate' or Earth's Polar Radius (case in point of both contained in one & same), that fail to communicate methodology or structure whereby intent or function could be demonstrated. Armchair doodling with correlations can hardly be considered a theory in absence of explaining purpose -- at least

Hello Manu you make a good 'against numeric' case. Collectively we are attracted to Egypt -- specifically the great pyramids -- from a variety of perspectives, of which the likely common denominator is their mystery.

Hi thinkitover In conjunction with degrees of angle & arc, the language for communicating this information was already established in a time unbeknown to us...

Quotecjcalleman What this means is that the duration of the precessional cycle is directly dependent on the distances and the masses of the sun, moon and planets. Nothing of the sort. The advance of the equinox is a product of the momentum transfer, obtained in a space collision. Occurring retrograde -- West by SouthWest -- to Earth's Eastward diurnal motion, the action not only changes the or

For a thousand years before Eratosthenes, obliquity was and currently still is, in the process of increasing. Perceived in context of the vertical aspect of Sunlight, it has been demonstrated how, once upon a time - Ref. my earlier post the Northern edge of the shadowless zone would have been located closest to the equator, at 14°12'30".

QuoteMercurial There's also the possibility that Eratosthenes was working with out-dated obliquity figures. If the tropic had moved south from Syene between the time of the books he was reading being written and his own time, then that would surely have upset his scaphe calculations. Possibly, like Charles Leadbetter, he believed obliquity didn't change and was a reliable constant. Indeed. Mor

Hello Jim & Melissa, in view of the quoted statement below, please note progressive edit. QuoteThe obliquity of the ecliptic ranges from about 24° 20' N to about 22° 13' N over a cycle of about 41,000 years. The last maximum obliquity was around 8000 years ago and 2250 years ago, around the time of Eratosthenes, the obliquity was around 23° 46'. I contend that although this may be the cu
