The Hindu yugas of time are mulitples of 432,000 years, and in Norse legend, groups of 800 warriors of Valhalla entered through 540 doors, total 432,000 warriors, and the Great Pyramid's dimensions are a reduction of the Earth's dimensions by a factor of 43,200, so what is this connection in the ancient world, was it coincidence, or could they measure the Earth, and if so, how did they do it.

When you multiply the length of the Egyptian royal cubit (20.632 inches) by 440 (cubits per base side of the Great Pyramid), and then by 4 (four base sides), and then by 43,200, you get 21,600 nautical miles (within 0.5%), the circumference length of the Earth, so how'd they do that?

If you take my height and multiply it by the number of weeks in a year, then raise that number to the fourth power you get the equatorial diameter of the planet, in inches, to within less than 0.05%. Now just how did I do that?

Unfortunatley, your little whatever does not relate at all to the length of the royal cubit, so you're out of luck, next.

The length of the royal cubit is a reduction of the circumference of the Earth, your "method" is not, bad try.

Well I guess you really showed me.

The "Royal Egyptian Cubit" was decreed to be equal to the length of the forearm from the bent elbow to the tip of the extended middle finger plus the width of the palm of the hand of the Pharaoh or King ruling at that time.

how did you arrive at the 20.632 inches mentioned?
yes indeedy, the egyptians had a way to measure to the thousandth of an inch didn't they.

They measured the circumference of the Earth first, then worked back to get the length of the royal cubit, that's why it's called an Earth commensurate measure, g e o m e t r y.

Yours would be called forearmetry, ahahaha.

Worthless that the ancients could accurately measure the Earth, as reflected in the dimensions of the Great Pyramid, and therewith, the length of the royal cubit?

Do you really think it has worth to say that the royal cubit is a product of forearmetry rather than geometry?

It is self evident that the Egyptians knew the Earth was spherical; that they measured its diameter accurately; that they understood where they were located upon the sphere; that they incorporated aspects of this understanding in the dimensions of the pyramid; that Piazzi Smith was bloody brilliant; that Ice Age Civilisations has never had an original thought in his life; that I'm feeling horny.
What any of this has to do with the number 432 is beyond meaningful hope of redemption.

Oph, the GP base perimeter length is a 43,200 reduction of the circumference of the Earth, and many ancient societies had this knowledge, as evidenced with the precession numbers, such as 432, in many ancient legends and architectures.

The Hung League of China uses these numbers, 36, 54, 72, 108, etc., and the Hindu yugas of time are multiples of 432, and the Norse legend, and the 72 conspirators against Osiris, and the 72 pillars at the ancient temple at Apadana, and the 72 at Angkor Wat, on and on.

I figured out that they did it by measuring precession, and so, the dimensions of the Earth, and then, the royal cubit, and accurate surveying and mapping in the ancient world.

So?

It proves that the ancients were navigating all over the globe during the Ice Age, see Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings (Hapgood), and it proves the true origin of the methodology for our current mapping and timekeeping system, other than that, I guess not much.

The maps of the Ancient Sea Kings were based upon the massive circum-planetary voyages of the Chinese in 1421. Damn all to do with ice age civilisations. Still, if you find you can sleep easier thinking you know a secret most others do not, then good luck to you.
