For those who want to feed their head. Others best move on.
One of the ongoing arguments against a unifed plan for The Giza Plateau is that their is no proof for a relationship between the 3 pyramids at Giza
and other pyramids of The Old Kingdom. I believe however that there is and I offer this as something to ponder. Observe this diagram using Petrie's
measurements.
Clive Ross adjusted this diagram to reflect a true east west bearing and his new corrected version is below.
As a a final image for now I post the measurements of The Bent Pyramid as agreed on by most Egyptologists.
Type Bent Pyramid
Height 101.1 metres (332 ft)
Base 188.6 metres (619 ft)
Slope 54°27' (lower)
43°22' (upper)
The first obvious relationship is our favourite and that is the 9 by 11 ratio.
a second obvious relationship is ... well not so obvious at all.
Mainstream Egyptologists claim that the angle was changed on the Bent Pyramid because structurally it started to fail and so the angle was changed but
allow me to ask you a question. If we were building a building today and it was structurally starting to fail ... well would we continue to build on
what appeared to be faulty footing ? I doubt it and I doubt that The Ancients would be so stupid as well. No to me the bend was deliberate and here
is a neat little proof tying it into Giza.
According to Wiki the angle for the top part of The Bent Pyramid is 43°22' now in decimals this equals 43.3667°
Now interestingly or coincidentally we find this precise angle at Giza as well. Here is what Petrie wrote prior to the correction.
Centre of First to centre of Second Pyramid 13931.6 and 13165.8 = 19168.4 at 43º 22' 52""
Now the builders knew that the world was full of doubting Thomas' so they wanted to make it so obvious that even a blind man could see it so they
decided to do something pretty amazing they decided to place another proof in your face but firstly lets look at this angle of 43.36667° - The tan of
this angle is 0.9445 and so the amazing builders at Giza decided to place it so in your face that even the total sceptic would be a bit hard pressed
to call it a coincidence for the distance from the center of G2 to the center of G3 along the horizontal gives us the same ratio of the distance
between the horizontal distance of G1 and G2 and the vertical distance of G1 to G2 namely the ratio of .9445 In our diagram we have a north south
distance of 13936.1 and a horizontal east west distance of 13162 that ratio being 13162 / 13936.1 = 0.9444 and checking to the distance east west
between G2 and G3 and checking precisely with the angle and tan of the upper protion of The Bent Pyramid or the tan of 43º 22'
So to me it is pretty obvious. The Giza Plateau was designed as a total unit from the beginning and used the same ratios found in other Old Kingdom
pyramids. The question is what were they trying to tell us ?

PS: If we use the original imAge with Petrie's unadjusted numbers we get this:
13166 / 13932 = 0.9450 and equaling the distance east-west between the centers of G2 and G3 EXACTLY !
All just a lovely coincidence ? I pesonaly rather doubt it.
