A friend just sent me this pic so I looked it up.



And sure enough, they are the same. The speed of light in m/s is the same as the latitude coordinate. I am sure this has popped up here before but cant find a thread on it.

Is this really odd or am I missing something very simple to explain it?

Those knuckle draggers couldn't possibly know the speed of light, because we discovered it!!!/s

it seems the pyramids, and other sites may be far older than main stream would have us believe.
the ancients knew many, many things that we have lost sight of, so this wouldnt surprise me at all.

Those same people must have rigged longitude 0 to be at Greenwich so that the speed of light worked out right. At the time the pyramids were built, Greenwich was probably not even a hut.

That's an interesting correlation.

But, I don't know.

Seems to me that 9 significant figures of precision for either the speed of light or the latitude is a bit much.

Isn't the tilt of the Earth drifting over time? Wonder if those coordinates would have been the same when ilthe pyramids were created. Even if not, that's just uncannily coincidental and is hard to ignore. I wonder if they were designed to become significant for our Millenia.

Thanks for sharing, it's pretty incredible either way.

Would you be willing to entertain the possibility that the land we now call Greenwich had significance in ancient times? Personally, I don't think it is entirely preposterous. There are many important locations today that stand above ancient lands of importance.

North and South latitude is measured from the equator I believe.

0 longitude is the prime meridian I believe. These are coordinates, not time zones.

Eta nevermind about longitude. I still think latitude is at the equator though.

You've missed a few things:

1. Coincidence.
2. Coordinates are not specified as just northings. What is the easting value equal to?
3. Assuming your quoted speed is in SI units there is no unit M or S that makes any sense in this context. Perhaps you meant m/s ?
4. Ancient egyptians didn't measure length in metres or time in seconds.
5. Ancient egyptians didn't measure angles in degrees and had no decimal notation.
6. Coincidence

Other than those, and your ignorance of coincidence and confirmation bias, nice try.

So the speed of light points us towards the pyramids. Wonder what the hidden meaning of that could be?

AND they had to use meters. And seconds.

This is a nice coincidence. BTW: The coordinates are ranging from 29.978135 to 29.980166 for the Cheop's Pyramide alone..

This thread is about the speed of light in meters per second. Think about that. The meter had not been invented when the pyramids were built. The Egyptians used the "pyramid inch," hand, cubit, etc.

Still, the geometry and measurements of the GP give me pause.

Yeah, as far as history tells us, they didn't use these measurements. That's what is a bit confounding....how did the measurements happen to just work out?

I understand coincidences perfectly well, but this doesn't seem to fit a coincidence as it is too precise I think. If it were coincidence, can anyone calculate the odds of this coincidence happening?

So, who used meters as a measuring unit back then??

Only problem, is that the meter wasn't a unit of measurement back then.
So if they did it on purpose, than they are not only very smart, but know the future as well.

So we have 3 possibilities here right?

1. Total coincidence. Not related in any way.

2. The unit of measure or the speed of light was purposely designed to be the same as the coordinates of the pyramids.

3. The builders of the pyramids were somehow aware of the significance of the exact location chosen to build the pyramids.

Is there another option?

The ancient Egyptians we know didnt use Centimetres or seconds but an older culture could have.

The system of measurement that the whole world (besides America) uses is actually based on water
1 cubic centimetre of water = 1 gram = 1 ml
So a litre of water will weigh 1 kilo and measure 1000 cubic centimetres, beautiful symetry based on the most important and abundant resource on earth. Makes sense that this would be a universal measuring tool

As for our time measurements, its based on units of 60 that we get from the Sumerian civilization (Which pre dates dynastic Egypt) who claim they got it from their gods back in some distant past, I dont recall why 60 was important but I remember that it made good sense.

My issue with this "coincidence" is that the east/west longtitude line doesnt seem to have any historical foundation prior to the time we set it a few hundred years ago.
Freaky coincidence but without explaining how they knew Greenwich was point 0 in longtitude I think it might be just that, a freaky coincidence

EDIT: well dont I feel silly, as someone below me points out its only latitude thats in the equation,
OK its gone from freaky coincidence to just plain freaky

Seems to be a lot of head scratching observations about the GP

Yes, the metric system is handy and symmetrical, but still not based on anything really obvious.

The GP's position in the OP is in latitude, not longitude.
