I think what he is getting at is the nuts and bolts of how GPS locations are derived.

Three satellites are required to triangulate a location. Since they use RF signals to calculate this, a forth satellite is required to verify the time. Without very precise timing (made possible by atomic clocks) the calculation would not produce an accurate location.

I'm frustrated because suddenly
I realize I am discussing this
with math illiterates.

Which means I will have to wait
for a better educated generation
to realize the profound value of
the research being shown here.

Thank you.

No your problem is a lack of focus

How can anyone call it either
numbers or counting, when
is plainly skips all odd numbers.

My comment is based on the the possibility that there are only even (amounts) on the stick and no odd numbers purely due to chance, not by specific design. One needs to think clearly, eh

Well no that is not it. Yampa seem to think its a great an important thing that the pyramid was built on that line, I was pointing out that there are four lines with that same number. The location of the pyramdi on that line is due to long list of previous decisions and a bit of luck.

Some Interesting coincidences

Mike

60.00 years: China, names, 12 animals x 5 elements
60.00 years: India, Brhaspaticakra, ~= 5 Jupiter years
60.00 minutes: Babylon, to an hour
60.00 seconds: Babylon, to a minute

52.00 years: Maya, calendar round
52.17 weeks: Gregorian Calendar

18.59 years: Moon, cycle, nuation
18.03 years: Moon, cycle, eclipse, Saros
18.00 sacred months: Aztec: 20 days in a month (+5 evil days)

8.85 years: precession, apsides, Moon
8.50 years: Minoan, Great Year

Another interesting Coincidence

62 months: Coligny calendar grid, covers five years
62 fifths: Minoan year, of fifths of a month

...on the sixth day of the moon, the day
which is the beginning of their months and
years...

- Pliny The Elder

Even though Pliny was discussing the Druidic
gathering of mistletoe, it is interesting
that the Minoan Calendar placed great
emphasis on the first quarter moon as
well.

Observing the exact phase of the moon is no

Other than the first sliver of light, and the
last, it is difficult to reach a consensus.
For instance the full moon could be argued to
be any one of three days in a row.

But with a quarter moon things are different.
The light and dark sides define almost a straight line.
Much easier to spot.

I am tracking your point on this. I was merely clarifying the atomic clock and GPS thing.

While the pyramid may be on a latitude which matches the speed of light, most understand units of measure can be adjusted to produce interesting coincidences. Yes, there is more than one location with that match.

Agreed!

I know the discussion is long gone but that speed of light/latitude of the pyramid thing kept me thinking.

The speed of light of light here is in miles. Miles as a unit of distance came waaaaaaaaay after the pyramids. It is not a base_x unit either like a kilometer. It is as random as it gets. For the builders of the pyramid to "guess" what unit humans would measure the speed of light in 2000 years hence would be remarkable. Then to guess what units we would use to measure global coordinates in would further be unbelievable and then build the pyramid right there on a match.

Now if they had a time machine

Hey it would be terribly complicated and incredibly lucky for the AE to be in the 'right' place thousands of year before the built the pyramids, lucky their ancestors live on near the 29 line All the other chances and decisions that lay to the development of L & L and later the metric system (which is the number Yampa is excited about) 299,792,458 vs the miles measurement that would be 670,616,629 mph....I wonder what might lie under the 67 06' 16" measurement? Or 186 282.397 mile per second 18 62' 82" !

67 06' 16" is inside the Artic Circle ( 66 33' 36" )

18 62' 82 " has to be converted
there are only 60 minutes, and 60 seconds (62' 82'' is too big)
19 03' 22" is Mumbai India, Hawaii, or Mexico City

Exactly right! Thanks for the correction
