The Great Pyramid of Giza

On the Location & Size of the Great Pyramid of Giza

Of all the monuments of the ancient world, it is the Great Pyramid located in Egypt that has attracted more intense analysis and study than perhaps any other. Indeed, the debates rage endlessly as to when it was built, who built it, why it was build, and how it was built, with seemingly no end in sight. The theories put forward in explanation range between extremely radical to utterly conservative. And no doubt the reader will, in coming to this site, already have a basic familiarity with most of the theories put forward to account for the existence of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

To the mind of this present author, who has examined many of the basic proposals concerning the Great Pyramid, it would appear that a fresh new perspective is needed on this structure. That is not to say that all of the theories put forward so far regarding the Great Pyramid are in error. Some of them undoubtedly are. But many indeed do appear to be partially right, at least in certain ways.

To some extent, and only to some extent, has the truth thus been uncovered as to the meaning of this structure.

In what follows then, though it is certainly not the intention of this present author to produce an overall ‘grand account’ of the Great Pyramid of Giza as such; in line with the general theme of this site, this author has discovered a set of unique mathematical relations that may prove decisive in answering the two most basic questions about the structure, in such a way that would appear to prove beyond doubt that those responsible for its construction were possessed of advanced knowledge, in terms of engineering, measurement, and mathematics.

1) Why was the Great Pyramid of Giza built WHERE it was built?


Part 1: The problem of global placement of the structure stated in full, and a brief review of the research so far.

Part 2: A new solution to account for the global placement of the Great Pyramid with respect to latitude. An explanation as to precisely why the stone structure is not located at exactly 30 degrees north of the equator, and why it was never intended to be.

2) Why was the Great Pyramid built TO THE SIZE that it was built?


Part 1: The problem of accounting for the decision to build the structure to the size that it was built. A brief review of the research so far, including the '1 / 43200' ratio theory.

Part 2: A new solution to account for the size of the Great Pyramid. How the base-line length of the structure is harmonically integrated to the Earth form, based upon a ratio linked to the actual number of casing stones of the pyramid.
