The Giza Oracle: A New Theory Concerning the Design of the Pyramids of Giza (cont.)
By © (2006) Scott Creighton
It is entirely possible, however, to apply the technique described above retrospectively to any 3 pyramids in Egypt and arrive at a triangle of a particular dimension whose centroids would, as a result of the mathematical principles, naturally correlate with the centre of those 3 pyramids. This, therefore, shows no proof that this is the underlying design technique because it could not (of itself) demonstrate any intention on the part of the Designer in the use of this design technique.
However, what would most definitely not occur as a natural result of the mathematics (in addition to the 3 matching centres) is to find 8 lines in the `plan' that also correlate with features in the physical pyramids! This could only occur if such features (lines) were intentionally `sculpted' into the pyramids. That the physical lines in Khufu and Menkau-Ra exist and correlate perfectly with this design method is not questioned but was this done to `mimic' the underlying design? Are we perhaps looking at coincidence again? Certainly, this is possible. However, there comes a time when one must decide where coincidence ends and conformity begins. In this case when divergent elements such as the 3 centroids and 8 bisectors coincide again and again and again with the relative positions of the 3 pyramids and the individual placement of the lines on the 4 faces of Khufu and Menkau-Ra, coincidence must surely subside to conformity. The question can be summarised thus: does the Centroid Alignment Theory offer us a reasonable explanation for the distribution of the pyramids in conjunction with the physical lines we observe in Khufu and Menkau-Ra? It is probably fair to say that it is possible.

However, if the Centroid Alignment Theory is indeed the underlying design mechanism used by the Designers, it still does not explain why they would have chosen such a triangle as the basis for their design nor, indeed, does it explain the purpose of the bisectors. What we must keep foremost in our minds is the extraordinary amount of additional effort it would have taken to construct these two pyramids with these bisectors. Is this perhaps indicative that the pyramids of Khufu and Menkau-Ra have some unique or `special' function to convey the ancient's `message'. This may indeed be so as we shall discover shortly.
One possible significance for this design mechanism is to ensure the apex of the Great Giza Triangle is `pointing' to a very specific location in the Egyptian desert (figure 3b).

What might be excavated and discovered under the sands at this location we can but speculate. The legendary `Hall of Records'? The lost Benben Stone of Heliopolis? The Ark of the Covenant? The 300 or so `lost' Books of Enoch? Who knows? There may be nothing. However, only by careful excavation of this spot in the Egyptian desert can we ever hope to reveal the truth.
A more likely explanation for this particular design technique relates directly to the Great Giza Circle (figure 1) and the Sphinx and will be explained shortly.
In figure 1 it was explained how the secondary pyramids `hinted' at Pi (3.14) and from this, a circle was circumscribed around all the pyramids, leaving the Great Sphinx just outside this circle. What are we to make of this circle? One possibility is to consider it as representing a `precession clock' that utilises the zodiac. But which zodiac? The zodiac we use today, which has its roots in the Babylonian zodiac, is not the same zodiac used by the Ancient Egyptians. And it seems that if the Great Sphinx is symbolic of the Age of Leo then this is also a problem since there was no such sign or age in the Ancient Egyptian zodiac. This presents a significant problem since the Giza Precession Wheel Theory fundamentally relies upon the Great Sphinx (the Lion) as being symbolic of the former Age of Leo (circa 10,948BC). However, it seems that the Babylonians themselves somehow obtained their zodiac from some other `unknown' source. In his thesis, `The Definition of the Babylonian Zodiac and the Influence of Babylonian Astronomy on the Subsequent Defining of the Zodiac', Robert Powell PhD, writes:
"It is unknown through whom the innovation leading to the introduction of the zodiacal coordinate system into Babylonian astronomy took place."
It is possible then, on the basis of this, that in a time before the Babylonians, someone, somewhere may have had the beginnings of our present zodiac - a zodiac that perhaps did include the Age of Leo, symbolised as a lion. Lost knowledge of a `lost civilisation' perhaps?
