An interesting aspect of the missing capstone of the Great Pyramid is that a circle circumscribed around the base, through the "projected apex",
reveals the axial tilt of the Earth. From the centre of the circumscribed circle (which happens to land on the apex of the Queen's Chamber roof), we
extend a line through the circle intersected by a horizontal at the GP's final course layer. When measuring this against a vertical line extended
through the Queen's Chamber, up through the "apex" of the GP, we find it registers at 23.5* (fig. 1) - the present axial tilt of the Earth.
Fig 1: GP Missing Apex "Encodes" Earth Obliquity:
But what of the "raised roof" of the King's Chamber (fig. 2)? It has often been asked why the roof of the King's Chamber was raised far above the
actual chamber by a series of so-called "relieving chambers". All manner of explanations have been posited to attempt to explain this curious
arrangement. Given that we find the the GP missing capstone "encodes" Earth's axial tilt, might not the apex of the King's Chamber roof then have
been elevated in this manner to present another "apex angle of obliquity"?
From the centre of the circumscribed circle a line extended through the apex of the roof of the King's Chamber registers at 17* (green line) - a
difference of 6.5* from the present Earth axial tilt of 23.5* (red line). By lowering or raising the KC roof would generate a unique angle, so perhaps
the KC roof was raised to create this very specific 17* angle (fig 2).

Well, an interesting fact about the GP is that the Grand Gallery presents to us the angles 63.5* (and its inverse of 26.5* - fig. 3). This 63.5* angle
of the Grand Gallery also happens to be the highest point at which the sun will reach at the summer solstice. This is useful to know because if we
also know the angle of obliquity (i.e. Earth's axial tilt of 23.5*), we can use this information to determine our Earth latitude thus: 90* - 63.5*
(highest point of sun at the summer solstice) = 26.5* => 26.5*+23.5* (Earth's axial tilt) gives us the latitude of 50*N (or south). Now, note in Fig.
3 below how the Great Pyramid rests on course layer 50 and the that the Queen's Chamber rests on course layer 23.5 (fig. 3).
Fig. 3: The GP Course Layers - KC on Layer 50. QC on Layer 23.5:
So, assuming then that the summer solstice high point of the sun is a constant in our equation, what latitude would we be at if the Earth obliquity
was tilted to 17* as perhaps indicated by the (green) line through the roof of the King's Chamber (fig. 2)? We have, 90 - 63.5* = 26.5 + 17*
(hypothesised axial tilt) = 43.5* latitude.
Could it be possible that we are being presented with information that latitude 50*N was somehow instantaneously shifted to latitude 43.5*N - a
difference in latitude of 6.5*?
Intriguingly, there is a further clue to this possibility with the so-called 'air/star shafts' of the King's and Queen's chambers of the Great
In the year c.10,500BCE, we can hypothesise that the shafts of the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid would have targeted the pole star Vega in the
north and Alpha Centauri (the brightest star after Sirius) in the south (fig 4,5, and 6).
Now, Giza is not located at 23.5*N but at 30*N - again a difference of 6.5*. So, if we view the SAME 2 STARS at the SAME TIME (i.e. c.10,500BCE) but
from Giza's present latitude of 30*N, then we have to change the angle of the shafts as follows:
Once again, using an entirely different set of structures within the GP, we are being shown a difference of 6.5* in latitudes. So we have one set of
structures demonstrating a shift of 6.5* in the Earth's axial tilt and then a second set of structures demonstrating a shift in latitudes of 6.5*.
Each data set corroborates the other.
Could this be the "message" of the Great Pyramid - that a sudden and instantaneous Earth Tilt of around 6.5* took place in remote times?
