The Great Cycle of Cataclysm
Futhermore, it is quite possible that these structures might also be conveying to us the duration (in years) between Illiantia's cycles, thus:
Figure 2 - The 2 Sets of 'Queens' encode the duration (in degrees) between Cycles
By measuring the angle between the two extreme apexes of the 2 sets of Queens Pyramids, we find that this is measured at 155.5°. We then convert this angle into actual years by multiplying by 72 which tells us that the duration from the end of one cycle to the beginning of the next is 155.5 x 72 = 11,196 years. We will discover shortly when the previous cycle ended which - by adding the duration of 11,196 years - will tell us when we can next expect Illiantia's return.
The 'Chosen Star' Calibrates the Wheel

Having now selected an appropiate group of three stars, it would then be a simple matter of ensuring that the physical ground structures depicted the chosen star of the group of three (i.e. the star with which to apply the encoded celestial co-ordinates) in such a way that this structure stood out from the others. This could easily be done by simply misaligning the 'chosen pyramid' from the others or by making it larger or smaller than the others. It would then be apparent to a future civilisation - having discovered the encoded data - which pyramid the data is to be applied to.
And so, with a means of ensuring future civilisations could not fail to select the correct group of three stars and then the specific star from within the group of three (i.e. Mintaka), it was now a case of finding a simple means of encoding the chosen star's celestial azimuth into the design. By encoding the star's azimuth at the horizon, you are effectively registering a specific date. This could be done quite easily by arranging the Orion Belt stars in such a way that a line drawn from the centre of the design (Khafre's apex) through the apex of the chosen pyramid (Menkaure) - when measured clockwise from north - would record the correct azimuth. In the case of Menkaure we find this azimuth gives us 212° (figure 3).
Alas, however, when we input this data for the star Mintaka into our star-mapping program we find we have a possible date range between 10,400-11,000BC - not particularly accurate for the purposes of a callibrating date for the Precession Wheel. We need more information, some other marker that will help us considerably narrow the date range.
It is quite logical to assume that with such crucial information the Designers would have ensured that it would be signposted to us in their design. And it seems that this may indeed be the case. This signpost represents one of Giza's most enduring puzzles - the curious lines that run top to bottom of each face of Khufu and Menkaure which Egyptologists have long failed to explain. These lines essentialy bisect each face of these two pyramids, effectively making them 8-sided structures. These 'bisectors' are our clue to dating the Precession Wheel with greater accuracy for what they lead us to is the construction of a very unique (hidden) triangle around the 3 Great Pyramids and it is within this hidden triangle that the anceint Designers have encoded the additional information required to accurately date the start of their Precession Wheel.
In my previous article on the Graham Hancock Forum, I presented the Centroid Alignment Theory (CAT) which proposes that the three Great Pyramids at Giza were aligned within a great triangle (the Great Giza Triangle or GGT) using the three most ancient mathematical centroids: incentre, barrycentre and circumcentre (figure 4). You can see more detail on this here:
Figure 4 - The Great Giza Triangle (GGT) and its Apex (star)
If we are to accept that the three pyramids at Giza are indeed symbolic of stellar objects, namely the Orion Belt stars, and that the centre or apex of those pyramids are symbolic of the centre of those stars, then what are we to make of the apex of the Great Giza Triangle (figure 4), that seems to indicate a point on the southwest horizon? If the apex of the pyramid represents the centre of the star it symbolises, is it not possible that the apex of the GGT might also allude to a star? If so, then which star? The answer to this question is logical, simple and encoded into the GGT (figure 5).

Intriguingly, the bisectors we find built into the faces of Khufu and Menkaure lead us to construct a triangular design that inevitably creates an apex - i.e. a 4th star (Pi 3Ori, Orion's 'Bow' or 'Shield') - at 224° and it does so without the need to physically construct a 4th pyramid! Through the pyramid bisectors and the GGT, the design itself implies a 4th star.
