"THE GREAT PYRAMID. A mathematical model of...what?
It is well known and accepted (in spite of Egyptologists!) that the Great Pyramid of Giza contains the transcendental number Pi such that --although a regular pyramid-- it represents mathematically a semi-globe or hemisphere. It also cannot be denied that its designer/s incorporated astronomical factors, mainly marking the four cardinal directions and also linking it to specific star-systems, principally in my opinion Orion's belt. By definition, therefore, it is a monument that can be seen as a reduced model of the apparent celestial hemispherical vault i.e. the visible sky. It is also well known that several prime numbers are the basis of the architectural design, namely including 7 and 11 and the square of 11 i.e. 121.
Recently various researchers (Gary Osborn, Jean-Paul Bauval, Edward Nightingale and others) have extracted many other interesting mathematical values --especially the so-called e-constant (2.718...the base of natural logarithm) which is very an important irrational number used in many sciences and technologies. Osborn has also pointed out that the value of the speed of light in the metric system appears in the design and location of the Great Pyramid, when the decimal point is 'slided' along the value. For example, the exact latitude of the centre/apex of the Great Pyramid is 29.9792458 degrees and the speed of light is 299792.458 km/sec., making this striking similarity difficult to accept as a coincidence. There is more.
At any rate, and whatever "model" this monument really represents, there can be no doubt that it is a mathematically "intelligent design" associated with the stellar beliefs of its builders.
Food for thoughts...."
Yes we know by now how you're susceptible to dubious claims from dubious sources and here's another example. The builders of the Great Pyramid had no concept of a metre, they measured lengths in cubits, not metres. The Meter wasn't invented until thousands of years later. Not only that, the latitude for the Great Pyramid isn't 29.9792458, it's 29.979175.

As I said, one day you will have to try and explain away the fact that what was discovered in the code has led to all this wonderful information.
