I wrote what I wrote ; I am convinced the AE did not need square root of 2 and square root
of 3 to design/make the shafts or no matter what monument.

The shafts were designed/laid layer by layer. They wobble and curl throughout the masonry, which indicates that they were not planned in advance (so, no square roots usw.) and that many corrections were performed.

It is not because we maybe possess papyri with mathematical exercises comprising eventually square roots, that the AE actually used square roots to build their monuments.

On a vast plane with multiple large geometric monuments that have quadrangular bases and overall pyramidal shapes, square roots and other relationships occur automatically (co-incidentally). The same goes for the shafts ; I believe that they were not planned in advance ; they wobble and curl (have been corrected) a little bit too much.

Think Ancient Egyptian, not present day.

By the way ; I forgive you.


Ronald.
