A few questions here - I shall do my best to answer them:
Hans: 1. Why doesn't the Lehner line touch the circle? Why does it stop short?
SC: The 'Lehner Line' concerns itself ONLY with the physical structures. As can be seen from the presentation, this line has numerous structures
connected to this line. It is unlikely that this is the result of simple happenstance and that this line represents something significant.
Hans: 2. Why does the Lehner line touch a different queen's pyramid that the one your circle is based on?
SC; Interestingly, the 'Lehner Line' actually connects the same star, rotated 90*, i.e. at min and max culminations. The circle, although closely
connected with the Lehner Line, (timeline) has a different function to the timeline. The function of the circle is to present two intersection points
beyond the timeline (points 1 and 4).
Hans: 3. Why has the date 10,500 now become 10,460?
SC: I have always written CIRCA 10,500BCE. If max culmination of the belt stars occurs c.2,500CE then 12,960 years back (i.e. half precession cycle)
takes us to 10,460BCE. We now have a more accurate rate of precession which shows that the belt stars will culminate c.2,500 CE. We can work out the
intersection date back the way from the more accurate 2,500 CE date. We also (as one would expect) get 2012 date.
4. What length of precession are you calculating for?
SC: The rate of precession is not - as I am sure you know - a precise science. The rate varies over time. A total of 12,960 years for the half-cycle
is not an unreasonable average and is supported by a number of star-mapping programmes.
Hans: 5. Why is the date 3114 BC not involved? That would be a key date if your idea is correct. As would be the start of the Mayan cycle
SC: I have merely demonstrated the fact that the Sphinx lines up with the midpoint of the 'Lehner Line' and show the date of this midpoint. (This
could perhaps be indicating the true date of construction for the Sphinx, hence why the Sphinx is aligned to this midpoint). This midpoint in line
with the Sphinx also helps confirm that the length of the timeline is delimited to the extent of the physical structures (as stated above) and not to
the circle edge (albeit one of the structures - point 2 - on the 'Lehner Line' is ALSO on the circle's edge).
Hans: 6. Why do black lines go from the Sphinx Stelae to 'your' Queen pyramid's?
SC: There are only 2 points on the circle BEYOND the timeline - points 1 & 4. The Sphinx is the most natural and obvious 'calibration point' - the
'point of origin'. And there is also a clear connection between the Sphinx and the timeline. So why not the Sphinx and the other two points (1 &
4) on the circle? We need an 'anchor' point - the Sphinx is the most obvious candidate at the site.
Hans: 7. What, in meters, is the radius of your circle and the length of Lehners line?
SC: Haven't yet checked the 'Lehner Line' length but quite amazingly the radius of the circle is 1200 cubits (diameter=2400) cubits. The
circumference of the circle is almost exactly 155520 inches which - if we divide 155520 by 12 = 12,960. Now before you claim the AE did not know the
inch it might be worth reading this: The Gravity Cubit
Hope this helps answer some of your well thought out questions.
