Well since I read the link by Hermoine I assume I am meant to post my thoughs here and I like that better.

Hi all this posting is going to tie up, and tie in, an awful lot of loose ends ( I hope). It will also answer some intriquing questions. One answer that it seems to answer in a very unique and novel way is where the cubit may have originated. It aslo indirectly ( or maybe directly) answers the question of why are the pyramids the size that they are. It also I think (for the time being anyway) lays to rest the notion that The Ancient Builders knew and used Pi and decimals, and finally I think it also ends speculation that The Ancient Builders knew and used a 360 degree circle. All those "crazy" ideas I had appear to have been shattered with a clearer understanding of how things may have worked in Ancient Egypt. But before we get to the meat of my theories I have to preface it by saying this: "In my estimation there is no proof that The Ancient Egyptians of 2500 BC actually built the orignal pyramids at Giza. They may have stood there for untold millenia and were simply reused in the manner I suggest here. The argument can go both ways. Notwithstanding this, it is my contention that what follows in my theory is what the pyramids were used for and possibly designed for and the methods I am about to propose were forgotten and discarded when that "Thief of Greece" Pythagaros, stole the idea and made it into something else. And a final note here. I am 65 years old and I remember quite vividly that up untill Grade 11 the accepted aprroximation for Pi was 22/7 or as they called it in my school, "Greek Pi" or 3 and 1/7 th as in those days we used fractions a lot. This posting I hope will be a learning experience for you as it has been for me. Is it the correct solution ? Well I have been asking for a solution to this problem for 16 years. Here is the simple question that has once again opened a Pandora's Box of knowledge. "How did The Ancient Egyptians lay out the fields again after the inundation had washed away all of the property corners" In 16 years I was never given an answer. Even George Johnson, an Egyptologist over at Guardian Egypt was unable to answer the question, so as I am apt to do, I decided to try to figure it out myself and the solution I have found is ingenius and even if this is not what they used the concept is so simple you will be hard pressed to not believe that they used it in this manner.

When most people think about the surveyors of Ancient Egypt they see surveyors with transits and levels and 100 cubit long ropes measuring ... but you know what - did they, or you, ever stop to think from where were they measuring from and more to the point ... to what were they measuring to. Also I was dumbfounded by the notion that such a rich and cultured and advanced civilization could not even tell or read angles. It simply did not make sense and so I went in search of a way to read angles ... but not have angles. Sound like double speak ? Well I don't blame you for in reality it is. But from pondering that question the floodgates of ancient measures and design came flooding into the harbor of unknowing. The seas of darkness had been breached and I feel I had been flooded with the knowledge that had been held back. It is so ingenious it will make you smile. I had managed to find a way to read angles, measure distances and lay out literally all of Ancient Egypt WITHOUT A TRANSIT OR A LEVEL OR A TAPE MEASURE. It is wild and soon I will slowly post the solution for as some say about a fine wine and I say about a nice new break through in knowledge it has to be savored and enjoyed for it can never ever be enjoyed in the same way again.

Cheers
Don Barone
