The Great Pyramid and the Speed of Light
The Great Pyramid encodes enormous amount of numerical coincidences ( pi, Phi, dimensions and movement of our planet, axial tilt, precession, speed of light, and more…)
We can only wonder if the ancient architects were fully aware of these special numbers encoded in their design — or are these numbers simply the result of selecting 2 numbers (7 and 11) for proportions for the Great Pyramid???

The design of the Great Pyramid is based on the ratio 11:7. This ratio (equal 1.571) is perfect approximation of the “squaring the circle” principle. For the Great Pyramid, Base to Height Ratio 440/280 is exactly 11/7 Most “pyramidologists” appear to be “chasing their tails” uncovering huge amount of “numerical coincidences” embedded in the Great Pyramid… It is simply unbelievable, however ALL of these numerical coincidences are result of selecting just 4 numbers for the pyramid design: 7, 11 (height to base ratio), 40 (the scale factor), and the 4th key number is the value of the measuring unit: Royal Cubit = 20.62 ” = 0.524 m. 
This single, fundamental design principle: 11 : 7 Base to Height Ratio generates ALL amazing mathematical properties of the Great Pyramid:
 the Golden Ratio Phi=1.618 (the Great Pyramid is a Golden Pyramid: length of the slope side (356) divided by half of the side (440/2 = 220) height is equal to 1.6181818… which is the Golden Ratio Phi
 squaring the circle ratio 1.571 (base/height = 44/28 = 1.571)
 pi=3.14159… (2 x base/height = 2 x 44/28 = 3.14286 which is very close approximation of “pi” = 3.14159…)
 Perimeter of the square base, 4×440=1760, is the same as circumference of the circle with radius = height: 2x ”pi” x height (2x 22/7 x 280=1760)
 The ratio of the perimeter to height of 1760/280 cubits equates to 2x pi
to an accuracy of better than 0.05%  Side of the base (440) plus double height (2x 280=560) = 1,000
 Perimeter of the square base is equal 4×440=1760 RC = 0.5 nautical mile = 1/7,200th of the radius length of the earth
 the slop angle 51°.843
 The Pyramid exhibits in the design both pi and by Phi, given the similarity
of 2/ sqrt(phi) (2 divided by the square root of Phi) with pi/2 :
 11/ 7 equal 1.5714
 2/ sqrt(89/55) equal 1.5722
 2/ sqrt(Phi) equal 1.5723
 pi/ 2 equal 1.5708
 Royal Cubit = 0.5236 m, pi – Phi^{2} = 0.5231
 and more…
Does Great Pyramid encode “fractal” value of the speed of light?
The speed of light in a vacuum is 299, 792, 458 meters per second or 983,571,056.43045 feet per second or 186,282.397 miles per second.
Base of the Great Pyramid is a square with side B = 44o Royal Egyptian Cubits. Let’s draw two circles: one inscribed and one superscribed on the square of the base of the Great Pyramid.
 Circumference of superscribed circle: 2x pi x R
 Circumference of the inscribed circle: 2x pi x r
The difference of the circumference of both circles (lets call it C) is:
C = 2 x pi x (R – r) = 2 x pi x [ B/sqrt(2) – B/2 ] =
2x pi x B x [ 1/sqrt(2) – 1/2 ] = 1.301290285 x B
The length of the Egyptian Royal Cubit
Based on “The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh” by W.M. Flinders Petrie. 1883.
The unit of measuring length used by the ancient architects in the construction of the Great Pyramid was the Royal Cubit.
Petrie estimated the value of the Royal Cubit using some key dimensions of the Great Pyramid:
By the base length of the Pyramid, if 440 cubits (section ’43): 20.611 ± .002
By the base of King’s Chamber, corrected for opening of joints: 20.632 ± .004 inches
By the Queen’s Chamber, if dimensions squared are in square cubits: 20.61 ± .020
By the antechamber: 20.58 ± .020
By the ascending and Queen’s Chamber passage lengths (section 149): 20.622 ± .002
By the gallery width: 20.605 ± .032
The Average value of the RC (based on above numbers) is 20.61 inches.
It’s almost universally accepted that archaeologist Flinders Petrie’s determination of the royal cubit length at 20.632 inches, from his measurements of the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid of Giza, was the likely measure to survey the dimensions of that pyramid, 440 royal cubits per base side, but the experts stop there, not then letting you know that those 1,760 royal cubits which total the Great Pyramid’s base perimeter length, when multiplied by 20.632 inches, equals half a modern nautical mile, or 1/7,200th of the radius length of the earth, so there certainly is a connection.
By most accurate series of measurements Petrie concluded that the royal cubit standard for the Great Pyramid was 20.620 ± .005 inches ( 523.7 mm).
Let’s use the lower value 20.615 ” for the Royal Cubit (allowed by the 0.005 ” accuracy):
the Royal Egyptian Cubit (RC) is 20.615 ” = 0.523621 m
B = 440RC = 9070.6″ = 755.883 feet = 230.393 m
Therefore C = 1.301290285 x B = 983.6 feet = 299.8 m
The value of C x 10^{6 }is surprisingly very close to
the speed of light in m/s
The speed of light in a vacuum is
983, 571, 056.43 feet per second =
299, 792, 458 meters per second.
Another very strange Great Pyramid “coincidence” related to the speed of light 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 ( 299,792,458 metres /s ).

Another interesting coincidence encoded in the Royal Cubit:
 Royal Egyptian Cubit = 0.524 m
 pi = 3.1416
 3.1416 feet = 0.957 m = 1.8263 RC
 2x (0.957 / 0.524 ) = 2x 1.8263 = 3.6526 = 365.26 x 10^{2}
Number of days in a year: 365.25
Another interpretation of the above:
circumference of a a circle with diameter equal 100 feet is
2 x pi x 100 feet = 2 x pi x 1200″ =7539.8″ = 365.74 RC
(or 356.25 RC measured in King’s Chamber)

The Missing Capstone Theory
The pyramidion (capstone) found near the Red Pyramid is nearly “96 cm from the top, measured along the edge“. This (and other capstones found in Egypt) suggests that Egyptians were not making huge capstones for their pyramids. Therefore assumption that missing capstone of the Great Pyramid was huge (30 feet at the base) is wrong. It is very likely that in addition to the missing pyramidion there is a layer of stones missing as well. Therefore the capstone was much smaller than the missing part of the pyramid.
To maintain perfect slope angle such a capstone would have to have identical proportions as the whole pyramid: 7:11. If we use the “Red Pyramid” capstone to estimate possible size of the capstone from the Great Pyramid, it seems reasonable to select 2 Royal Cubits (140^{th} of the pyramid’s height) for its height. The capstone’s base in this case would be 3.14286 RC (as the result of keeping the same scale and proportions as the GP) . This is very close approximation of “pi”.
The missing capstone of the Great Pyramid was very likely 2 Royal Cubits in height (3.4267 feet = 1.0475 m ) with square base of 3.1428 Royal Cubits (5.4 feet = 1.646 m).

Note:
440/280 = 1.5714286 (3.14286 when multiplied by 2 ).
280/440 = 0.636363636363… (0.63 number with recurring decimal)
The Revelation of the Pyramids
The Revelation Of The Pyramids takes an in depth look into one of the seven wonders of the world, the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Mystery has surrounded these epic structures for centuries with theories varying from the scientific to the bizarre. However with over thirtyseven years of in depth research taking in sites from China, Peru, Mexico and Egypt, one scientist has as at last managed first to understand and then to reveal what lies behind this greatest of archaeological mysteries: a message of paramount importance for all mankind, through time and space.

 How did Egyptians built the Great Pyramid?
PS Cosmic Harmony
Observe the measurements of the Moon:
Equatorial radius 1,738.14 km (0.273 Earths) so
the Moon Diameter is: 3,476.28 km or 2,160 miles.
Let’s make this “the cosmic unit” (one moon unit)
representing the “ideal” diameter of The Moon.
Diameter of The Sun =865,294 miles*.
If we divide 865,294 by 2,160 astonishingly
we get 400.6 …
*The SOHO spacecraft was used to measure the diameter of the Sun by timing transits of Mercury across the surface during 2003 and 2006. The result was a measured radius of 696,342 ± 65 kilometres (432,687 ± 40 miles). Staying within the margin of error, measured radius of the Sun is 432,647 miles (or diameter 865,294 miles).
7 x 8 x 9 x 11 x 12 x 13 = 864,864 which is only 0.05% (430 miles) smaller than the measured value.
Also, 930 x 930 = 864,900 (only 394 miles less than measured value).
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: 40,075 kilometers
That is truly a “cosmic” coincidence !!!
There is more… and the Great Pyramid has these values encoded in its proportions!
The radius of the Moon compared to the Earth is three to eleven, ie. 3:11.
Radius of Moon = 1,080 miles = 3 x 360 = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x (3/2 )
( 1080.030 miles = 1738.1 km )
Radius of Earth = 3,960 miles = 11 x 360 = 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 x (11/2)
(3963.167 mi 6378.1 km )
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 (14/2) = 7 x 8 x 9 x 10
(Actual 5043.197 miles )
1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6=720
1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21
21 x 240 = 5040
(720 x 21) / 3 = 5040
(720 x 21) / 14 = 1080
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.

The three Giza pyramids are an Earthly presentation three stars (spheres) in the Orion constellation’s belt, so maybe they’re meant to be the aboveground half of imagined irregular octahedrons ( apex to apex, 280 x 2 = 560 ),
Pi ? ( 440 x 4 ) / 560 = perimeter / length (of an imagined octahedron, “octahedroning” the sphere !)
I’ve often wondered why the Giza pyramids weren’t instead built as regular square based pyramids (4 equilateral triangle faces), this could be why.
The Royal cubits rods shouldn’t be used as units of measurement as there is no way in telling if they even existed at the time of the pyramid’s construction, and the lengths vary by 5.7mm from the shortest to longest anyway. Better to use relative lengths and ratios only.
The exact dimensions of the pyramids when built will probably never be known because of erosion.
By the way, the geometry of the first diagram shown is impossible using the values shown (as you very likely know). The values, height = 280, side edge = 440, diagonal edge ? 418,569, face base to apex ? 356.0899, would work though.

Justin says
Any body with even half an understanding of math could tell you, that you can’t mix and match unts to suit your answer. If they described the speed of light in Royal Cubits, that would be something. But unless they were clairvoyant, they could not have known we’d be using nautical miles, feet, meters (pick a unit to suit your answer!) the only thing that would indicate scientific understanding of the earth./moon is if all the calculations about were in RCs. I prefer the first idea, if you pick 7,11,40 and a RC for numbers, the coincidences are inevitable. This is just ancient alien./conspiracy theorist porn
Roy says
Would you like to build a pyramid using nautical miles? Go on. Have you ever heard of coding?
Andrew says
You are wrong. In fact, the meter and royal cubit are harmonic and proportional to each other. (Seen on YouTube with a pendulum and meter stick). Therefore, deriving an exact global metric measure while currently using a system based on a cubit derivative is entirely conceivable. Or, do you really believe in coincidentally matching 9 digit numbers?
radarblue says
Just came across the similar Lightspeed and the longitude of the Giza pyramid.
My comment is that it might be a Ratio between the Earth Meridian, north and south geographic poles ( not magnetic poles, but relating to the North star ? ) and the position of the Pyramids. However it might be that whatever measurement one uses, the lightspeed (in unrefracted medium) equals the longitude of the Pyramids, measured from the North Pole. Using French Meters, Imperial Feet or even Faraos Cubits may result in the same “ratio”, or relationship between the 2 units of question.
In that case it is even stranger that the pyramids have not moved due to any tectonic plate shifts, that is usual over some thousand years. Meaning the Pyramids cant have been there for very long in a “tectonic plate shift perspective”..

The Awakening Has Started…
Thought initiates the movement into realms so massive that one will not see the end or the beginning of essence. Realization of one’s massive power dawns as precious impetus toward an awakening that amplifies a catharsis of the soul. This trip is truly Magic. No matter what the level that one attains there is no end to the potential to the thought. Our view of this realm is beyond holographic for it reiterates throughout infinity as a massive echo of our own existence. We are on this trip, simply by being here and there at the same time. I am you and you are me. I am the observer of myself and you are the observer of us all, as I am of you, the Other. I am the Other. The flux of this association radiates the message of information inherent in the seeker. The power of this knowledge is massive but only slightly held in physicality. One must concentrate here to see the union of being and becoming enjoyed by us all. Where two or three are gathered in HIS NAME, we all can see the relevance. If the relevance can be known here, then we can see clearly the pathway back Home. Existence is a latency amplified by thought shared to create a triangulation for manifestation.
