Why “α” triangles in the Great Pyramid have not been noticed till now? One explanation could be the fact that: what we know affects our visual perception of the world. A very good example of it is the “AERA” cover photo of the Annual Report 2010-2011.

What never changes is peoples' unwillingness and inability to see the truth even when it's put in front of their eyes.  

The facts don't matter when your mind is made up. 

 

 

I think you're missing a citation there...

If I remember correctly, there was no star that was due north at that time. But a line through two of the handful of stars circling the pole would locate it.

There were two of those stars that were exactly vertical to each other, so a plumb line could have been used.

Easier to align it exactly east-west though, and then you end up with north-south alignment, as long as you keep the building square.

No stars needed if you just put a stick in the ground and mark two spots on the ground where the end passes during the day. 100% accurate way to find north. Not necessarily "magnetic" north though.

But then the Ancient Egyptians wouldn't use sticks and the sun now would they? They'd only use the stars on a dark lightless plateau at night to find north. :blink:

You've been saying that for almost fifteen years.

This might be a wise statement, but you appear never to have understood the basic facts anyway.

I was about to post much the same. :tu: :tu:

That was why I said it would be easier to align East-West.

The aliens never told them about sticks.

We call them 'obelisks' .  The Ancient Egyptians were fully engaged with the sky, both day and night.

The earliest obelisks on record date to the Middle Kingdom.

Roman cement, and it was only better because of a specific type of limestone used. 

If your referring to the Roman Seawalls still standing a good part of that is the pumice used as an aggregate. Interestingly as the ocean slowly dissolved the mortar particles within the aggregate mineral deposits formed within those microscopic voids forming a stinger substance.

When is the benben stone first referenced ? That's what an obelisk and a pyramid are.

Don't know. That would be a good thing to dig up. When it was first referenced, i mean. It's long gone, of course.

Romer points out this striking feature at Giza...

 

I'd also suggest the pairs of obelisks and the layout lines chiseled in the floor at Karnak is evidence of their use as gnomons. Where the shadows of two obelisks on an east west axis meet is due north.

@M. Williams, come to think of it, I'd have to say the oldest references to the ben ben come from the Pyramid Texts. I'd also say the Dynasty 5 solar tem[;es were manifestations of the ben ben. This is me spitballing, mind you.

Bang zoom!   We only have two Atlantis threads running right now. Not that there's anything wrong with Atlantis as a subject matter, but puhLEASE Louise! :wacko:

How ya been, KMT?  Out paths don't cross often because of the dearth of good Egyptology threads.  Say, KMT... :huh:    lol

Wasn't that New Kingdom? They were still making pyramids, but they were tiny little things by then, right?
