Most probably, your data have a high degree of accuracy. By now, We are all very familiar with your precision and with your love for geometry.
But you really will never understand that, if you take a pyramid, which undoubtedly is a geometrical body, and place it on a diagram and draw other geometrical bodies over and around it, such as right angles, 45°-angles, quadrangles, rectangles, triangles, even bows, etc., in the really complicated web you are creating in this way, you AUTOMATICALLY (co-incidentally) get square roots.
With your phrase " ... square root of 2 and square root of 3 were major influences on the design and placement of the shatfs as were sq rt of 2 and 3 on The Giza Plateau", between the lines, you actually say that the Ancient Egyptians must have used the same complicated drawings to build their monuments, which you cannot prove they did and which I certainly do not believe.
The matter is not that we have to prove that your data are incorrect, but that YOU will have to prove that the AE, who lived in the third millenium BC, reasoned and thought like you do with the aid of your CAD-CAM engin in the third millenium AD.
