In 1882, Flinders Petrie measured 1007.7 British Yards.
1000 yards is 1 second of equatorial rotation.
The ancients divided the day by 12 hours not 24.
Resulting in 43,200 seconds in a day.
43,200s x 1000y = 43,200,000 yard circumference.
To convert to British yards multiply by 1.0077.
This calculates to a 39,806 km circumference (99.4% of NASA).
The height of the Pyramid is exactly the radius of a 1000 yard circle.
The Pyramid represents the Earth at a scale of 43,200.
The designer of the Great Pyramid knew the exact size and shape of the Earth and its rotational velocity.
This used to be common knowledge.

Could the base unit of length used by the ancients have been the yard?
What are your thoughts?
