Thank you! I've been an avid spectator of ATS for awhile now but have never taken the time to give my thoughts. I appreciate your positive comment and take it as the warmest welcome possible to ATS
In regards to my 3rd point from my previous post, I looked at the distance from the Manchester Museum at the University of Manchester to the tip of the Great Pyramid at Giza and the amount is 4,098,860.34 yards. The angle of the path from UoM to the Great Pyramid is 323.81 Degrees. It's intriguing to me that:
100(2Φ) = 323.60679
figure it out math boy
The inscription on the back pillar reads: “An offering which the king gives to Osiris, Lord of Life, that he may give a voice offering, consisting of bread, beer, oxen and fowl for the Ka-spirit of’.
When I first noticed that one of our Middle Kingdom statuettes (Acc. no. 9325) had been turned around 180 degrees to face the back of its case in our new Ancient Worlds galleries, I wondered who had changed the object’s position this without telling me.

The 10-inch tall relic, an offering to the Egyptian God Osiris, was found in a mummy's tomb and has been at the Manchester Museum for 80 years.
But in recent weeks, curators have been left scratching their heads after they kept finding it facing the wrong way. They now believe there could be a 'spiritual explanation' for the turning statue.
It is believed that there is a curse of the pharaohs which strikes anyone who dares to take relics from a pyramid tomb.
Experts decided to monitor the
There are vibrations in the glass most likely from an old magnetic ballast in the fluorescent lighting built into the case, which hum and vibrate as the bulb begins to go bad. The statue only turns when the lighting is on, reinforcing this explanation. Assuming there is a slight angle towards the back of the case, it is sensible that the pivot point under the the body of the statue would have a greater influence over the vibration of the significantly less massive rotational component of the base which would have a significantly greater amplitude of longitudinal vibration. The smaller statues would not be similarly affected because of the far less significant mass at the pivot point and therefore have a more uniform vibration response.
