Scott, or anyone else for that matter - are you familiar with David Furlong's work on Giza and its relationship with Britain's Megalithic monuments?

I'm currently finishing his book "The Keys to the Temple" and it's quite interesting. Particularly, it focuses on the sanctity of geometry, and goes on to explain how (and to some extent why) the Ancients were able to set out complex yet deliberate geometrical patterns in the landscape - some extending across 20km of land or more - with pinpoint accuracy.

- The 'Seked' was the Egyptian's equivalent of our 'gradient' and it is how they measured the angles and slopes of the Pyramids. It explains why when trying to measure the angles using degrees, fractional, not whole numbers are found.

For example: The slope of the Great Pyramid is 51 degrees 51 minutes 14 seconds, yet when using the Seked to measure it, the result is a 7:11 ratio - much cleaner, fuller numbers.

- Furlong's work explains how, with simple tools, the Ancients could set out arrangements of temples which either reflect star constellations or produce perfect circles, equilateral or 7:11 ratio triangles.

- Identifies the same triangular ratios and geometrical values in British groundplans as are used in the Great Pyramid in Egypt, suggesting some kind of commonality.

- Another great example of what Furlong has discovered is the Scotland Pentagram.

Might not look like much at first glance, but check his page, which explains how vital angles are incorporated into this vast ground plan. Other examples of Egyptian temple alignments can be found here.

Hello Cythraul,

Not quite sure how I managed to overlook your post here. Please accept my apologies - better late than never I suppose.

Yes, I have studied some of Furlong's work relating to the AE seked. One of his findigs concerning the 5.5 Seked used for the GP is that there is no practical reason for using such a seked and he concludes that its use must be related to some cultural or symbolic reason.

As for the Scotland Pentagram - I find it interesting that the Pentagram cuts across the 'Pentland Firth' in the northeast and the 'Pentland Hills' (home of Rosslyn Chapel) in the Southeast. I also find the co-ordinates of Rosslyn Chapel quite incredible (from Giza) = 34.5W, 55.8N. Here we have the 3-4-5 Pythagorean triangle x 1.618 (Phi) = 55.8 !!

Kind regards,

Scott Creighton

No problem Scott. I'd forgotten I made this thread. Thanks for going back to it though. The additional info you offer is fascinating. Sometimes I can't help but wonder if all of these geographical and architectual "consequences" are too rich and complex to have been man-made. My concept of a god or gods is fairly ambiguous but it's tempting to think of them laying markers for a developing man to follow. Though, this doesn't give due credit to what was clearly a deeply-knowledgable determined group of ancient intellectuals.
