## The Sphinx, Fibonacci and Phi

Creating a 9x9 square grid equal to 9 base lengths of Khafre (in black) and dividing it at its Phi ratio point, (in blue), then drawing a Fibonacci spiral we associate the location of the Sphinx to the geometry. Notice the orange square, it is 1/64th of the 8x8 grid that is associated with the Sphinx, (maybe the “missing 1/64th of the Eye of Ra?) If we recall that Menkaure’s Angle #1 gave us the number for its volume of 7,997,790 and we have accounted for the three 7s, we need to explain the three 9s. I hypothesize that our three 9s are 9 + 9 + 9 = 27 and the Sphinx length is 1/27th of the diameter of the main circle. (I will cover in detail the exact circle diameter of 6355.554 ft equal to 3699 Royal Cubits, 20.61818 inches at another point). Here is the calculation. 6355.554 ft ÷ 27 = 235.390889 ft.

235.390889 ft x 12 = 2,824.69067 ÷ 20.61818 (Royal Cubit inches) = 137 Royal Cubits, proposed length of the Sphinx. Next let’s take a closer look at the (missing?) 1/64th square of the 8x8 grid in orange overlaid on the Giza image.
