Equatorial Circumference of the Earth:
1,000 x 360 x 365.24 feet
= 131,486,400 feet = 40,077km
Official value for equatorial circumference of the Earth:
That is truly a “cosmic” coincidence !!!
The Great Design
Modern science confirms what our ancestors already new: the architecture of the universe (nature) is based on some key numeric proportions we can see on all levels of scale: from the atoms and DNA, through patterns and blueprints of life, all the way to solar system and galaxies…
It appears that the earth, the moon and the sun are components of the Great Design. The message embedded in this design can be reveled when we examine proportions of its elements (which become more obvious when expressed in the ancient units of measure).
The time span of a day is dictated by the earth’s rotation speed which is a finely tuned Great Design factor, the units used by the whole world to divide the day and measure time called the second, the minute and the hour are also Great Design factors. The whole world divides circles into 360 degrees with each degree containing 60 minutes that are subdivided into 60 seconds, this system was first used in the Great Design.
Music’s laws of harmony are Great Design factors, the numbers and number sequences found on the Musical Scale Chart are very thoroughly woven into the Great Design. The Greek and Hebrew languages, their alphabets along with their embedded systems of numbers were used in the Great Design before man even existed thus demonstrating that the Source of languages, alphabets and writing is neither mortal man nor Evolution. The British system of latitudes and longitudes are used by the whole world but they were first used in the Great Design before man existed. The purpose of the Stonehenge group of monuments and the Great Pyramid was to reveal the Great Design in detail and they have succeeded, the monuments are geometric time capsules containing a message from the past to the present, the seals are broken and the message can be read. http://www.thegreatdesign.com/about-2/about
Amazing relationship between the Sun, the Earth and the Moon
It is a very strange quirk of fate indeed that the disc of the Moon should seem, from an Earthly perspective, to be exactly the same size as the Sun. Whilst we casually take it for granted that the two main bodies seen in Earth’s skies look the same size, it is actually something of a miracle (see the next image below).
Most people are fully aware that the Moon is tiny compared to the Sun but that it is much, much closer to us causing them to appear as equal discs. To be precise the Moon is 400 times smaller than the star at the center of our solar system, yet it is also just one 400th of the distance between the Earth and the Sun.
This perfect fit of the lunar and solar discs is a very human perspective because it only works from the viewpoint of someone standing on the Earth’s surface. And it only works at this point in time because it was very different in the past and it will change again as the Moon moves away from the Earth.
The magic of the Moon’s movements above our heads goes to even more astonishing levels. By some absolutely incomprehensible quirk of nature, the Moon also manages to very precisely imitate the movements of the Sun. It imitates the perceived annual movements of the Sun each month. The full Moon is at its highest and brightest at midwinter, mirroring the Sun at midsummer and at lowest and weakest at midsummer when the Sun is at its highest and brightest.
The origin of the Moon is also mysterious. The material that forms the Moon came from the surface of the Earth, but there is no satisfactory explanation for how this happened. The so-called “double-whack” theory seems unlikely in the extreme.
Looking from the Moon, apparent size of the sun and the earth are different
The radius of the Moon compared to the Earth is three to eleven, ie. 3:11.
Radius of the Moon = 1,080 miles = 3 x 360
Radius of the Earth = 3,960 miles = 11 x 360 = 33 x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5
Radius of Earth plus Radius of Moon = 5,040 miles* =
= 14 x 360 = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 = 7 x 8 x 9 x 10
(*Actual 5043.197 miles )
The ratio 3:11 is 27.3 percent, and the orbit of the Moon takes 27.3 days*.
*Sidereal rotation period 27.321582 d (synchronous).
27.3 days is also the average rotation period of a sunspot.
Observe the measurements of the Moon:
Equatorial radius 1,738.14 km (0.273 Earths) so
the Moon Diameter is: 3,476.28 km
I am going to give it the name of “The Thoth”, as a lasting memento to “‘Him”.
If all is perfection, as I believe it is, surely “Thoth” would divide into “Ra” evenly. And we are left with this mind numbing calculation:
Diameter of The Sun = 1,392,000 km
If we divide 1,392,000 by 3,480 astonishingly we get 400 … exactly !!!!!
So what I did next is the stuff of epiphanies.
I decided to divide 3480 (“perfect” value) by the actual value of 3,476.28 and to my amazement, and going beyond anything I had ever discovered before I arrived at this answer. It is beyond dream-scape, it has entered the twilight zone of the gods for what we arrive at here is … 3,480 / 3,476.28 = 1.001070
… The pyramid inch, infrequently called the sacred Jewish inch, is a unit of measure claimed by pyramidologists to have been used in ancient times. Supposedly it was one twenty-fifth of a “sacred cubit”, 1.00106 imperial inches, or 2.5426924 centimetres.
The first suggestion that the builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza used units of measure related to modern measures is attributed to Oxford astronomy professor John Greaves (1602–1652), who journeyed to Egypt in 1638 to make measurements of the pyramid. His findings were published in his Pyramidographia and under his name in an anonymous tract. More than a century later, Greaves’ measurements and additional measurements made by French engineers during Napoleon’s expedition in Egypt, were studied by John Taylor (1781–1864). Taylor claimed that the measurements indicated that the ancients had used a unit of measure about 1/1000 greater than a modern British inch. This was origin of the “pyramid inch”. Taylor regarded the “pyramid inch” to be 1/25 of the “sacred cubit” whose existence had earlier been postulated by Isaac Newton [ 1 sacred cubit = 25 inches = 63.5 cm. Sacred Cubit was created from the Earth's and the Sun's measurements. The value of 1.00106 British inches is calculated as 1/500,000,000 of the Earth's polar diameter] . The principal argument was that the total length of the four sides of the pyramid would be 36524 (100 times the number of days in a year) if measured in pyramid inches. Taylor and his followers, who included the Astronomer Royal of Scotland Charles Piazzi Smyth (1819–1900), also found numerous apparent coincidences between the measurements of the pyramids and the geometry of the earth and the solar system. They concluded that the British system of measures was derived from a far more ancient, if not divine, system. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, this theory played a significant role in the debates over whether Britain and the United States should adopt the metric system …
If we divide 3480 / 1.00106 we get 3476.32 or for the radius 1738.16 out a mere 2/100 of a km
So there we have it folks. The Pyramid is a human scale model of a stylized solar system with a corrected unit of measure for a base.
So what has happened is THAT WE ARE USING THE WRONG MEASUREMENT SYSTEM !!!!! Our units should be corrected to tie into solar distances. Architects of the pyramids on the Giza Plateau didn’t use an inch, or a centimetre or a metre or a cubit or a digit or anything of the sort. The Great Pyramid and The Giza Plateau was laid out according to the unit of measurement that “The Gods” used!
And lest you think this is so much number crunching allow me to post another page from “The Book of Knowledge”
- There are 16,666.66666 Moon Units in the distance from The Sun to Mercury
- There are 13.33333333333 Moon Units in the distance to Mercury’s perihelion
- T here are 16.6666666 Moon Units in the distance of Mercury’s semi major axis
- There are 20.00000 Moon Units in the distance to Mercury’s aphelion
There is still much more to follow as Horus gets into the act
And as we proceed on this try to remember these words from The Book of Enoch:
26. And on that day the night becomes longer and amounts to the double of the day: and the night amounts exactly to twelve parts and the day to six. [ Don's Note: day = 0.333333 night = 0.6666666666 ]
27. And the sun has (therewith) traversed the divisions of his orbit and turns again on those divisions of his orbit, and enters that portal thirty mornings and sets also in the west opposite to it.
28. And on that night has the night decreased in length by a ninth part, and the night has become eleven parts and the day seven parts.
29. And the sun has returned and entered into the second portal in the east, and returns on those his divisions of his orbit for thirty mornings, rising and setting.
and it is written that the Sun and the Moon were placed in the sky to help man measure, … and they surely were !!!!

And to once again show the mastery of “It’s” work The Creator chose to place planets at the correct distance apart so that on certain occasions we would see the amazing harmony of the master work when we would see an eclipse and see that everything was perfectly in place to exactly cover The Sun and leave just a sliver of light around it. No other configuration would allow this. It was simply a one shot deal and everything was placed perfectly to allow all this to happen and as all this was happening the Earth was traveling around The Sun in … A PERFECT CIRCLE
But even though the work may have been finished quickly (or slowly, does it matter ? ) our job has to be to try to learn what system The Creator used and surprisingly it appears that he used a simple 9 x 11 grid and the ratios 7 and 11 and also 14.
In order to try to figure out the design of this solar system of ours I decided to start at the nearest planet to The Sun, Mercury who it was said through history was “The Messenger of The Gods”. Could this mean that Mercury would tell us what “God” said or could it be that Mercury might tell us or show us what God had done ?
Orbital period of Moon = 27.321582 days. Can’t help but feel that in the beginning it was 27.27272727272727 days or 27 and 3/11ths … Yes I think that is how I would have designed it.
I would have made The Moon distance a single unit and then would have made The Earth 3.666666666 larger or made it a perfect 3 to 11 ratio and then made the Moon revolve around The Earth in 27 and (3/11)th days time and nicely 3 and (2/3)rds as a reciprocal is of course … 0.2727272727. Aw yes, no wonder they lamented the passing of Zep Tepi – The Golden Time – when all was harmony.
And you know what else I would have done. I would have definitely allowed the planets to revolve … in perfect circles.
But riddle me this. Why would Enoch claim there were but 364 days in the year ? “
… On that day the night decreases and amounts to nine parts, and the day to nine parts, and the night is equal to the day and the year is exactly as to its days three hundred and sixty-four. … “

The “Rhythm” of the Solar System
The fact that the 366 system worked so perfectly for the Earth, Sun and Moon caused us to look at every other planet and moon in the solar system. Nothing. None of our neighbors came close to fitting the system. There seems to be something very special about our planet and our Moon’s relationship with the Sun (which does not appear to be the case for other planets).
- The number of complete rotations of the Earth in a year
- The number of MY (Thoms) in a Megalithic second of arc on the Earth
- The percentage size of the Earth compared to the Moon
- The number of Thoms (MY) in a lunar Megalithic second of arc
- The number of times the Earth rotates faster than the Moon
- The Sun is larger than the Moon ( Diameter of the Sun = Diameter of the Moon x 400 )
- The number of times the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun ( Distance Earth-Sun = Distance Earth-Moon x 400 )
- The number of kilometres the Moon turns on its axis in a day
- The number of times faster that light travels in a vacuum compared to Earth’s speed of orbit around the Sun (299,792.458 km/s : 29.78 km/s)
- The number of Earth turns in an orbit of the Sun x(times) the number of Earth turns in one lunar orbit of the Earth (sideral year x sideral month = 365.256 x 27.322=9980)
- The exact number of times that the time difference between a sidereal and solar day fits into one orbit of the Moon.
- The number of kilometres to Earth’s polar circumference (2x”pi”x6356.8 km = 39,940)
- The number of Thoms (MY) in a solar second of arc
- The number of Earth diameters to the Sun’s
- The number of solar diameters across the maximum diameter of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun
- The number times the Earth turns in one turn of the Moon
- The percentage size of the Moon to the Earth
- The number of Megalithic seconds of time it takes the Moon to pass across one Megalithic second of arc in the sky.
A Gaussian year is defined as 365.2568983 days. It was adopted by Carl Friedrich Gauss as the length of the sidereal year in his studies of the dynamics of the solar system.
Are we looking at ‘God’s blueprint’?
These integer numbers could not possible fall out of the Earth – Moon – Sun relationship by accident when every other solar system body appears to have no rules whatsoever.
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), originally set up by NASA, spends a vast amount of energy searching for radio messages from a non-human origin based on the belief that we are probably not alone. SETI has been criticised by a number of physicists who argue that radio is not a viable means of communicating across the vast amounts of space and time involved in the universe. Some have suggested that a message is more likely to come by means of large physical objects.
Consider these words by Professor Christopher Rose and Dr Gregory Wright:
“Rather than transmitting radio messages, extraterrestrial civilizations would find it far more efficient to send us a ‘message in a bottle’, some kind of physical message inscribed on matter. And it could be waiting for us in our own backyard”.
Could the Moon have been “constructed” as a message by integrating ratios and values of both the Sun and the Moon? The problem is that all of these values only work now – at this point in time, which means that the message sender intended for it to be discovered right at this point in time. Did they know that humans would have developed the intelligence to read the message at this point?
It all sounds very weird; especially to us because we are hard-nosed pragmatists, and certainly not wishful thinking believers in exotic ideas. Until now that is, because evidence should not be ignored just because it is not what you expected to see.
Could humans have been ‘seeded’ on a planet that would sustain us? It is a fact that the Moon has been a very accurate ‘incubator’ to nurture life at all of its stages of development. If the Earth did not have our unique Moon there would be no humans. That is certain.

Message in a bottle
The Great Pyramid of Giza has encoded its location (latitude) and calendar in its geometry
Location: 29°58′ 45.03″ N 31°08’03.69″E
When we multiply the latitude numbers 29x58x45.03 we get 75,740
Now, this pyramid has 4 sides, its perfect slope angle is 51.843° and there are 365.243 days in a year:
4 x 51.843 x 365.24 = 75,740
Also, the length of a base side at the base socket level is 9,131 pyramid inches or 365.24 pyramid cubits. The length of a base side at sidereal socket level is 9131.4 pyramid inches or 365.256+ pyramid cubits. The length of the perimeter at the sidereal socket level is 36525.63629+ pyramid inches.
Here is another intriguing “coincidence”:
According to Sir Flindres Petrie survey results, the actual height of the Great Pyramid (including currently missing capstone) originally was 5,776.0 ± 7.0 inches.
In other words, accounting for his measurements accuracy (+/-) 7″, the height was between 5,769″ and 5,783 ” or 279.80 - 280.48 Royal Egyptian Cubits.
1 Royal Egyptian Cubit = 20.61818″ = 0.52370 m
1 meter = 1.909490 Royal Egyptian Cubit
1 km = 1,909.490 Royal Egyptian Cubit
The closest distance from the Earth to the Sun (called perihelion) is
147,098,290 km = 280,855,912,463.662 Royal Egyptian Cubits = 280.856 x 109
Month Average Earth-Sun Distance
January 147 000 000 Km
March 149 000 000 Km (vernal equinox)
June 153 000 000 Km (summer solstice
July 153 000 000 Km
September 150 000 000 Km (autumnal equinox)
December 148 000 000 Km (winter solstice)
Note: Another very strange “coincidence” was discovered by John Charles Webb Jr. : Precise latitude of the centre of the Grand Gallery (inside GP) is 29°58? 45.28? N = 29.9792458° N.
The speed of light in vacuum, usually denoted by c, is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics. Its value is 299,792,458 metres /s.
Also, Earth’s average orbital speed around the Sun is 29.78 km/s [ Earth's orbital velocity around the sun is about 29,300 m/s at aphelion (when the earth is furthest from the sun) and 30,300 m/s at perihelion (when the earth is closest to the sun).]

The Pyramid Matrix Theory
According to Carl Munck, archaeocryptographer, discovered that ancient monuments across the globe encode their exact positions with respect to latitude and longitude (Pyramid Matrix theory). The science of decoding these monuments is called archaeocryptography. For latitude, ancient monuments were referenced to the same (modern) equator. For longitude, these monuments were referenced to a former Giza, Egypt Prime Meridian – discovered by Munck – that ran from pole to pole across the Great Pyramid. His website (www.PyramidMatrix.com) provides introductory examples of ancient monuments, how they encode their positions in the Matrix, and resources for deeper study (and verification).
One of the best examples is Chichen Itza in Mexico.
The Mayans succeeded in an almost impossible mission with the completion of their structures at Chichén Itzá. A poetic combination of form, style, function, religion, philosophy, mathematics and geometry. A true symbiosis of all of their intelligence and art in one location, to be studied and admired by all that visit. By far the most impressive aspect of the Pyramid of Kukulkan is it’s relationship with the sun and how it reflects the equinoxes and solstices of our solar year with stunning accuracy.
Sacred Geometry – Blueprint for Ancient Monuments
John Michell discovered a diagram which served as the design (blueprint) for many sacred sites, including the Stonehenge, The Great Pyramid, St. Mary’s Chapel at Glastonbury and the City of Magnesia in Plato’s The Laws. This diagram known as the Cosmological Diagram or the New Jerusalem diagram was known to the sages of ancient times, including the magi of ancient Egypt. It was also employed by the Hebrew, Abraham – along with certain magical letter operations. Later in this article we will show how this diagram was used in design of the Great Pyramid of Giza, Temple of the Rock in Jerusalem and Kaaba in Mecca.
Perhaps all these sites were part of a global network of ancient temples. Religious texts reveal that locations of all sacred sites were chosen by God(s).
Ancient monuments (pyramids and temples) encode key elements of the Great Design. The question is: Was this knowledge discovered by our ancestors on their own or had they received it from God(s)?
Great Teachers of Humanity
Was the “Great Design” work of Nature or God(s)?… At this time we cannot be certain. However, one thing is clear: either by their own intelligent inquiry into nature or by teachings received from god(s), ancient architects and builders encoded the knowledge about the Grand Design in their “projects (pyramids and temples). It is amazing, that all major religions mention their gods as “teachers of mankind”… Here are few examples:
Ea (Enki), the god of ancient Sumeria
In remote times, according to this myth, when men lived in a lawless manner like beasts, Ea appeared from the sea. Part man and part fish, the double-headed god instructed men in handicrafts, farming, letters, laws, architecture, and magic. He softened the primitive rudeness and since that time nothing has been added to improve on his teaching. After a day of instruction Ea retired into the sea, whence the divine fish man made only three other appearances over a period of thousands of years.
E.A., the standing serpent wave, offers the secret of the stars to a priest.
JAHVEH, the LORD of Israel
And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See , the LORD hath called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; And he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship;And to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to make any manner of cunning work. And he hath put in his heart that he may teach , both he, and Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman , and of the embroiderer , in blue, and in purple, in scarlet , and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that devise cunning work. — Exodus 30-35 (Bible, KJV)
Quetzalcoatl, the god of Mesoamerica
In his wrote: “In the city of Tollan reigned many years a king called Quetzalcoatl…. He was exceptional in moral virtues … the place of this king among these natives is like King Arthur among the English.’ The temple pyramid dedicated to Quetzalcoatl in this advanced city had been built by the Toltecs, whose ninth emperor priest he was. Three centuries after the collapse of Toltec power the rulers of Aztecs were pleased to call themselves ‘successors of Quetzalcoatl’. He was regarded as the greatest historical king: he started the cultivation of maize; he introduced weaving, the polishing of stone, and the making of feather mantles; he taught men how to measure time and study the movements of the stars; he invented the calendar along with its fixed ceremonies and days of prayer; he expounded religious doctrines. – Bernardino de Sahagun “History of Things of New Spain” (written in the sixteenth century)
Quetzalcoatl, the Mayan “lord of life”and King of Tula being `consumed’ by a `serpent’.
Viracocha is the great creator god in the pre-Inca and Inca mythology in the Andes region of South America. According to the myth recorded by Juan de Betanzos, Viracocha rose from Lake Titicaca (or sometimes the cave of Pacaritambo) during the time of darkness to bring forth light. He made the sun, moon, and the stars. He made mankind by breathing into stones, but his first creation were brainless giants that displeased him. So he destroyed it with a flood and made a new, better one from smaller stones. Viracocha eventually disappeared across the Pacific Ocean (by walking on the water), and never returned. He wandered the earth disguised as a beggar, teaching his new creations the basics of civilization, as well as working numerous miracles. He wept when he saw the plight of the creatures he had created. It was thought that Viracocha would re-appear in times of trouble. Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa noted that Viracocha was described as “a man of medium height, white and dressed in a white robe like an alb secured round the waist, and that he carried a staff and a book in his hands.”

According to some researchers (e.g. Zecharia Sitchin), our ancestors knew their gods. They were not gods in any religious sense, and there was no religion as such. The gods were not a matter of belief: the people lived side by side with them in cities built by human laborers under the direction of Anunnaki architects and engineers.
Jerusalem, Mecca, Giza …What these 3 sacred sites have in common?
It seems that all ancient temples were part of a global network (matrix) of monuments ( locations of these sites was not random).
A line from the Dome of the Rock to the Kaaba, center to center, has length 666.75 nautical miles (=1232.9690 km = 2,354,341.976 REC = 11.1 deg of arc).
Also, the perimeter of Giza-Jerusalem-Mecca triangle is: 1,600 nautical miles, 1840 miles, 2962 km = 5,655,909 Royal Egyptian Cubits
BTW, there is also another connection of Kaaba with the Great Pyramid — and the temple in Baalbek:
Moreover, religious texts reveal that locations of all sacred sites were chosen by God(s). Here are few examples.
31° 46′ 40.8″ N [31.778 ]
35° 14′ 7.44″ E [ 35.2354 ] or
4o 06′ 09.3″ E – after factoring the ancient Prime Meridian (GP instead of Geenwich)
Although Jerusalem appears in the Hebrew Bible 669 times, it is not mentioned in the Pentateuch. Instead when referring to Jerusalem, the term “the place that God will choose” is used.
And God said: ‘Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah (Jerusalem); and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains (Temple Mount) which I will tell thee of. — Genesis 22:2
The earliest tradition regarding Jerusalem states that Adam, the first man, was created from the same place where in future the Altar would stand in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem has been the holiest city in Judaism and the ancestral and spiritual homeland of the Jewish people since the 10th century BCE. The city of Jerusalem is given special status in Jewish religious law. In particular, Jews outside Jerusalem pray facing its direction.
The Foundation Stone or Rock is the name of the rock at the heart of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. It is also known as the Pierced Stone because it has a small hole on the southeastern corner that enters a cavern beneath the rock, known as the Well of Souls. It is believed by some to have been the location of the Holy of Holies in the Temple, and is the holiest site in Judaism.Jewish tradition views it as the spiritual junction of heaven and Earth. Jews traditionally face it while praying.
Kaaba in Mecca
21° 25′ 21.02″ N 21.422506
39° 49′ 34.58″ E 39.826272
8° 41″ 33.78″ E – after factoring the ancient Prime Meridian (GP instead of Geenwich)
The Qur’an states that Abraham, together with Ishmael, raised the foundations of the holy house. God had shown Abraham the exact site, very near to the Well of Zamzam, where Abraham and Ishmael began work on the Kaaba’s construction. After Abraham had built the Kaaba, an angel brought to him the Black Stone, a celestial stone that, according to tradition, had fallen from Heaven on the nearby hill Abu Qubays.
The Black Stone is the eastern cornerstone of the Kaaba, the ancient stone building toward which Muslims pray, in the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is revered by Muslims as anIslamic relic, which, according to Muslim tradition, dates back to the time of Adam and Eve. The stone was venerated at the Kaaba in pre-Islamic pagan times.
Islamic scholars have generally assumed that the Kaaba was constructed by Abraham around 2130 BCE. The Kaaba is, therefore, believed by Muslims to be more than a millennium older than Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, which is believed to have been finished in 1007 BCE. These dates remain consistent with the Muslim belief that the Kaaba is the first and thus oldest mosque in history.
The four corners of the Kaaba roughly point toward the four cardinal directions of the compass. Its major (long) axis is aligned with the rising of the star Canopus toward which its southern wall is directed, while its minor axis (its east-west facades) roughly align with the sunrise of summer solstice and the sunset of winter solstice.
Is Mecca at Phi location on its meridian?
Is Mecca at the Golden Ratio point of the Earth? Let’s first look at latitudes. Phi to 15 places is 1.6180339887499. There are 180 degrees between the North Pole and the South Pole, so 180 divided by Phi is 111.2461179749810. As latitudes are expressed in degrees and distance from the Equator, we subtract 90 degrees and convert this to a latitude of 21 degrees, 14 minutes and 46.02 seconds, North or South.
The latitude of Mecca, according to Google Earth, is 21 degrees, 25 minutes and 21.02 seconds.
This puts it only 10 minutes and 52.54 seconds north of the exact northern golden ratio latitude of the Earth.
This is a variance of less about 1/10 of a percent, about 12 miles or 20 kilometers north of the exact golden ratio latitude point.

Carl Munck discovered that when the world’s pyramids were built, their longitudes were reckoned from a very ancient Prime Meridian (0/360° longitude) that ran from pole to pole across the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt, a full 31 degrees, 08 minutes, 00.8 seconds to the east of our modern Greenwich Prime Meridian. In order to “read” our western pyramids this 31° 08′ 00.8″ longitudinal variance must be factored in to our present-day longitudes for these western monuments.
The latitude of the Great Pyramid is 30 deg N
Distance, Angles etc.
- Mecca-GP: 11.56 deg, 695 nautical miles = 800 miles (799.85) = 4,224,000 feet = 1287.23km, heading angle 319.34

Sacred Geometry Design
Pyramid, Dome and Cube “connect” 3 religions: Jewish, Christian and Muslim. Perhaps this is a hidden meaning of this Alchemy symbol:
The Great Pyramid, Giza:
1.2 x 1.6180 x 1.6180 = 3.1415
The Dome of the Rock, Temple Mount in Jerusalem:
The Cosmological Diagram (aka the New Jerusalem Diagram) encodes some profound properties and proportions of our solar system (the Earth, the Moon, the Sun and more). It seems that all ancient temples were designed to reflect some of this knowledge.
The completed design dimensions, as suggested by Petrie’s survey and subsequent studies, are estimated to have originally been 280 Royal Egyptian Cubitshigh by 440 RE cubits long at each of the four sides of its base. The ratio of the perimeter to height of 1760/280 cubits equates to 2 x Pi to an accuracy of better than 0.05% (corresponding to the well-known approximation of Pi as 22/7).
The Great Pyramid is also a “shrine” to a special rock: the capstone or Coffer in King’s Chamber
The template used to generate proportions of the Great Pyramid was also used to generate the layout for all 3 Giza Pyramids:
Giza layout plan is a rectangle:1000 x sqrt(3) by 1000 x sqrt(2) (in Royal Egyptian Cubits):
Above: According to Pythagoras’ theorem: 12 + (sqrt2)2 = (sqrt3)2
To obtain the Giza layout rectangle, the ancient architects would start by marking corners of 1000 x 1000 Royal Egyptian Cubits square. Next, using “stretched cord”, they would mark length of diagonal on E-W side. The other side of the layout rectangle would be obtained by marking length of diagonal of 1000 x 1000 x sqrt(2) rectangle [=1000xsqrt(3)] on S-N side. This extremely simple method results in the layout perfectly matching measured value for S-N side (1732 REC) and is gives very close value (within measurements error) 1414.214 REC for E-W side (measured value is 1417 REC).
The image below explains the geometric construction (based on the simplified NJ diagram) generating the Giza layout. Such construction can also be easily done with “stretched cords”.
The 1st pyramid: 440x 280 REC reflects design ratio 11:7 (base : height) and it encodes Phi and Pi. The distance when Earth is closest to Sun (perihelion) is 147×10^6 km, which is translated into royal cubits 280 x 109, hinting at the height of the Great pyramid, 280 royal cubits. This pyramid is expression of the ratio of the Moon and Earth Diameters (expressed via squared circle diagram).
If height of the Great Pyramid was 1000 units, each cubit would have value 3.5714285 (1000/280). Interestingly, the side of the square base of the pyramid would be 1,571.4 units, and its diagonal would be 2222 and half diagonal = radius of circumscribed circle 1111. Source Andras Goczey
The 2nd pyramid: 411 x 275 REC reflects design ratio 9:6 (equal 3:2 = 1.5) . Dimensions of Second Pyramid are ruled by Pythagorean Triangle
Perimeter of the base ( 4 x 411 = 1644 REC) divided by (9/2) is equal 365.33 (nearly exact value of the number of days in a year).
Also, the circumference of a circle circumscribed around the base of this pyramid (diameter = diagonal = 580 REC) divided by 5 is nearly exactly the number of days in a year:
(1/5) x circumference = 0.2 x Pi x 580 = 364.6 (with Pi approximated as 22/7).
The 3rd pyramid: 201.5 x 125 REC feflects design ration: 8:5. Ratio 8:5 = 1.6 originates from the first of Fibonacci Series [1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 ...,] and therefore represents a rational approximation of the value Phi = 1.618.

Satellite image of the pyramids near Giza with overlay of Earth, Venus and Mercury (scaled down by the same factor). Although it is not a perfect match, similarity in size is puzzling.
The very form of a rotunda, given to the Qubbat as-Sakhra, although it was foreign to Islam, attempted to rival the many Christian domes of its time. A.C. Cresswell in his book Origin of the plan of the Dome of the Rock notes that those who built the shrine used the measurements of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The diameter of the dome of the shrine is 20.20m and its height 20.48m, while the diameter of the dome of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is 20.90m and its height 21.05m.
The Dome of the Rock perfectly fits the Cosmological Diagram (below it is overlaid with Nazca Glyph which is a version of the NJ Diagram):
Jerusalem 2 squares 1200 x 1200 layout:
6/5 = 1.2
(6/5) x (6/5) x (6/5) = 1.728
The canonical Egyptian cubit is 1.728 English feet in length.
The fact that the longer edge encompassing Jerusalem measures 1728 of these cubits validates the metrology, putting the sacred in sacred geometry. Source >>
1728 is one of the Perfect cube numbers:
1, 8, 27, 64, 125, 216, 343, 512, 729, 1000, 1331, 1728
13 x 23 x 33 x 43 x 53 = 1,728,000
Note: BTW, the equatorial radius of the Moon: 1,738.14 km
Kaaba design can be generated by the NJ Diagram (as shown on the graphic below):
Kaaba 25 REC cube (Height = 43 feet = 516″ = 25 REC)
