I was just trying to make the most of the data presented here, actually...

"Then, the team used a statistical method called linear regression analysis to determine those lengths. They found that the east side of the pyramid originally measured somewhere between 755.561 and 755.817 feet (230.295 to 230.373 meters), while the west side of the pyramid originally measured somewhere between 755.833 and 756.024 feet (230.378 to 230.436 m).

This means that, at most, the west side was only 5.55 inches (14.1 centimeters) longer than the east side. Though that would leave the pyramid not quite square, it's a remarkable level of precision for a monument constructed more than 4,500 years ago, the researchers noted."

755.604156305 is within the figures given there for the west side, and I figured that 481.032547980 was a fairly reasonable approximation of your 5292 / 11 ( = 481.09090909) value. If not, do you have a single figure for the most basic design?

That data very much makes me think that maybe I'm explaining the pyramid represented by the east side of the GP and you're explaining the pyramid represented by the west side?

(BTW, 5.55 is a little suspicious. Someone may want to build a 555.5555555 ft tall obelisk over it, especially since it's the reciprocal of "Isis" if Wood and Campbell had their way).

I'm not sure which of your GP height values is actually intended as the basic one though. Do you have a particular preference?

There are other things that might be cubit pairs that you can get out of the Cubit-o-Matic 2000

(360 / 1.21673360279) / 10 = 1.71887338556 x 1.72132591650 = 1.71763106226 x 1.72257092721

(1.71715890225 x 1.72304457533 might be possible, but 1.72257092721 may have the best pedigree of the lot).

I don't know any of these that well though. Customarily these would be expected to relate to other things at Giza. I expect redundancy - part of data handling is to make backups, obviously - and that is a lot of second opinions to consider.

Speaking of Isis Backwards, though that's 1 / 18 x (Pi^3) = 1.72257092668 = 20.6708511202 inches. Yoda gets excited to see that figure of 20.6708511202.

481.032547980 / 1.71763106226 = 280.055803921

755.604156305 / 1.71763106226 = 439.910628423 - is that close enough to "440 cubits"?

755.604156305 / 1.71715890225 = 440.031586583

(Does remind me of 2.72017497600 x 1.61882913851 = 440.349851705 also)

(3.33333333333 / Pi) x 1.61882913851 = 1.71763106226

(While I'm thinking of it, 1.61882913851 does also have this pedigree by the way: ((R^2) / Pi) x sqrt 240)

Redundancy... many routes to the same data, ideally accessible via the usual suspects. Just in case some archaeologist chops it all up. Especially if no four sides of a pyramid are actually going to be the same in real life. I think Lehner tried to say there's actually a twist in the top. Might be what comes from trying to splice four different pyramids together. That much less that he's coming to your rescue or mine probably. Great big marshmallowy pyramid too squishy to measure without a f-cking satellite, topped with 2/5 miles of fudge. Mmm, mmm - Giza-licious!

You know what's funny? When patron saint of Nazca Maria Reiche declared that Nazcans used units of .33 and .66 feet. I don't suppose it ever occurred to her to add the two together? It occurs to someone to occasionally use addition, doesn't it? 33.33 + 19.47 = 5280 / 100 (<--Proof that ancient Freemasons did not own pocket calculators. They obviously don't even know that anything exists beyond 2 places after the decimal).

I like your work on the Chephren pyramid, Vi. Are those for real? I had a feeling they didn't build a 30-60-90 the better part of 500 high just to keep from forgetting the Pythagorean theorem.
