The Great Pyramid Architect Had A Secret

Joseph Turbeville MS


This presentation offers powerful tabular evidence that the principal architect of the Great pyramid of Giza, in the era of the Old Kingdom of Egypt, chose the 'foot' as the primary unit of linear measure for the design, then retained in secret the mathematical system that was used to define the unit of measure for the pyramid. This secret is uncovered and disclosed in this paper by the author, and the chosen unit is found to be dimensionally the same as the 'foot' defined by the British Imperial system of units.

A mathematical process termed number distillation, which has been referred to in the distant past as “ the casting out of nines”, is an essential part of the self-limiting, sequential, single-digit per cell tables that are developed here. The column and row sums, as well as specific numerically marked areas whose digits are cubed and summed provide overwhelming evidence that the term 'foot' is the only possible candidate for the primary pyramid design unit.

There is no evidence as to just when the unit was adopted for use in the Old Kingdom era, but the sequentially based, tabular method introduced here is mathematically and geometrically irrefutable. It provides a rational, non-circular argument that even hints at the proposition that the pyramid designer may have developed and been the first ever to use this particular unit of the 'foot'.
