At a higher astronomical scale, it is known that the Great Pyramid hides the grand cycle of Precession of the Equinoxes of our solar system around the central sun of the Pleyades (25827.5 years) in many of its dimensions (for example in the sum of the diagonals of its base expressed in pyramidal inches). It is also well known that the three pyramids in the Giza complex are aligned with the stars in the Belt of Orion.

The pyramid also gives us the following.

OP, people wont like what your saying, I know, I've posted a couple of threads on this subject. They will offer a never ending list of reasons for the numbers, but they will not entertain the idea that the numbers are deliberate.

In the next article, researchers in that field show that the builders of the pyramid knew well of the Earth and Moon diameters. And by incorporating them in this monument they openly declared their significance. So we have something important, that is made secret, we have a rat. I hope you are big enough cat, to catch that rat. Are you?
From it and the proportions of the Great Pyramid as shown in Figure 4, the diameter of the Earth and Moon in miles can be directly determined!!!
Earth:11×720=7920 milesMoon:3×720=2160 miles
One can infer that the dimension of this unit of measure could be geodetic in nature, that is to say, having some specific relationship with the physical attributes of the Earth's shape. Generally the Royal cubit is understood to have been 524 millimeters +/- 2mm (20.63 inches) in length.
Royal Cubit equal 25.62 inches believed to be the measurement employed by the Egyptians in construction of the Great Pyramid.
The general form of the niche was a recess 41 inches (2 cubits) deep back; 62 inches (3 cubits) wide at base, and diminishing its width by four successive overlappings of the sides (at each wall course), each of ¼ cubit wide, until at 156 high it was only 20 (1cubit) wide, and was finally roofed across at 184 high. Thus, of the 3 cubits width of the base, one cubit was absorbed on each side by the overlappings, leaving one cubit width at the top. This cubit is the regular cubit of 20.6 inches, and there is no evidence of a cubit of 25 inches here.
Probably the base of the chamber was the part most carefully adjusted and set out; and hence the original value of the cubit used can be most accurately recovered from that part. The four sides there yield a mean value of 20.632 ± .004, and this is certainly the best determination of the cubit that we can hope for from the Great Pyramid.
From all these details of the lines, it seems that the roofing–blocks had usually a mid–line and two end lines marked on their sides as a guide in placing them; and, in case of obliteration, extra lines were provided, generally a cubit (20.6) from each end, but sometimes at other points.
Sir Isaac Newton defined the “sacred cubit” as 25 pyramid inches. Based on his research of the ancient texts he postulated the length of the sacred cubit to be between 24. 90 and 25. 02 inches.
Taking next the niche, which has been abundantly theorized on, there are two instances claimed to show the so-called "sacred cubit" of 25 "Pyramid inches", or 25.025 British inches. The breadth of the top of the niche is not, however, 25 inches, but only averages 20.3, and it is intended for a regular Egyptian cubit, roughly executed. The excentricity of the niche is nearer to the theoretical quantity, though in all parts it is too large for the theory, the amount being 25.19 (varying 25.08 to 25.31) from below the apex of the roof, or 25.29 (varying 25.10 to 25.44) from the middle of the wall. So here, as elsewhere, the supposed evidences of this cubit vanish on testing them.

Wouldn't because the Egyptians used a wheel to measure their distances pie be a condition of the great pyramid and there fire it would reflect the diameter in sone way if any sphere?
I dunno I'm bad at math n stuff but wouldn't it?

Which means it's a made up unit of measurement which has nothing to do with the GP.

It is interesting to note that Sir Isaac Newton had a great interest in the length of the cubit. His interest it seems was based upon his belief that the cubit and by extension the inch were relative to the astronomical measurements he needed to confirm his gravitational theories. Isaac Newton in his Dissertation on Cubits narrowed the value of the Hebrew or “Sacred Cubit” to approximately 23-27” in length. He used the following 7 points to arrive at his conclusion. All values are calculated in British inches. 1 British inch = 1.0011 primitive inches.
1. By investigation of Talmudist’s and Josephus’ in reference to the Greek cubit he calculated the range of the Hebrew cubit to 24.3 – 31.24”
2. From Talmudist’s proportion to the human body 23.28 – 27.94”
3. From Josephus’ description of the pillars of the Temple 23.28 – 27.16”.
4. By calculation of a Sabbath days journey 23.28 – 27.16”
5. By Talmudist’s and Josephus’ description of the Inner Court 23.28 – 26.19”
6. By proportion to the Chaldaic and Hebrew cubit to that of the cubit of Memphis 24.83”
7. Statement of Mersennus as to a supposed copy of the “sacred cubit of the Hebrews” 24.91”
