1732 - 1417.5 = 314.5

1732 + 1417.5 = 3149.5

3149.5 - 314.5 = 2835

3149.5 + 314.5 = 3464

3464 - 2835 = "629" ( i will look at this number closer in next post)

250 - 213 = 37
429 - 152 = 277
37 + 277 = 314

314, 314.5, 3149.5 ( possibly a sequence unfolding ?)

Maybe I'm missing something, but I fail to see how any of the calculations you've shown relate to the ancient Egyptians. Your math all seems to be based on nautical miles and meters; units that have changed many times since their inception, and that the Egyptians never even had to begin with.

Edit: I also don't believe the ancient Egyptians conceptualized or used the same system of latitude/longitude that we use today, or that they had the same system of seconds, minutes, and 24 hour days. They may have divided the circle into 360 degrees; I suspect not, but I'm not certain, so I'll give you that one....

Something's missing, all right, but you're not the one missing it.

Most unlikely. The Egyptians measured angles by distance only, so many cubits, palms or fingers in and so many cubits, palms or fingers up. Sort of like how we measure slope, only inverted, IIRC.

Additionally, Egyptians did divide the day into parts, 24 parts. But when the days are longer, the daytime hours were longer. Or, I should say, the daytime had 12 parts, and the nighttime had 12 parts, and the lengths of these parts changed as the length of the day changed so that the daytime parts were always equal to 1/12 of the time between sunrise and sunset. From this we can see that they didn't associate time with the motion of stars across the sky and they wouldn't have come up with the 360 parts of a circle that way either.

They did know there were 365 days in a year, though.
