## The Gravity Cubit (cont.)By Scott Creighton

There are other curious aspects linking the Great Pyramid's dimensions with time. Take, for example, its slope angle of 51.84º. The ancient Egyptians used a 360 day calendar and added an extra 5 epagomenal days at the end of each year to give a 365 day calendar. Excluding the epagomenal days, we find in 1 Egyptian year there are 31,104,000 seconds. In 1 leap year of 366 days there are 31,622,400 seconds. This represents a difference of 518,400 seconds and in this we are reminded of the slope angle of the Great Pyramid.

If this wasn't curious enough, we then find that the 365 day year x 16 (feet) = 5,840 x 720 minutes (half of 1 solar day) = 4,204,800 inches = 350,400 feet. This figure just happens to be almost exactly the sum of the Great Pyramid's perimeter of 3,024 feet + its height of 481 feet = 3,505 feet (x 100) = 350,500 feet.

Furthermore, if we then take 10,000,000 times the distance between G1 to G3 pyramid centres, then the time it would take an object to fall this length is 43,725 seconds which gives us 12 hours, 8 minutes and 45 seconds.

It so happens that this time period is the time it takes the sun to traverse the sky from sunrise to sunset at the autumn or vernal equinoxes at Giza!

The Great Pyramid - a monumental expression of time and space.

Before finally leaving the Gravity Cubit it is also worth noting that the height of the Great Pyramid (5,772 inches) when divided by Phi (1.618034) reduces this height to almost exactly 1 inch after 18 divisional iterations, thus:

 5772 3567.29 2204.71 1362.58 842.12 520.46 321.66 198.8 122.86 75.93 46.93 29 17.93 11.08 6.85 4.23 2.62 1.62 1

Thus the height of the Great Pyramid divided by 18 iterations of Phi may also have been the original source of the humble inch. It may also help explain this quite remarkable expression of the Phi spiral in the Great Pyramid discovered by the author, Gary Osborn:
