|The numbers that correspond to the measurement of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Pyramid of Khufu, reflect the motions of the Sun on its journey towards the constellation of Hercules (12 miles/second) and on its journey around the Milky Way (175 mile/second). These numbers also coincide with those of the ancient maya reckoning system.|

The Great Pyramid of Giza of ancient Qemt, or
Kemi as derived from the Coptic, is also known as the pyramid
of Khufu. Its precision in construction and its very measurement
have intrigued generations upon generations of students and scholars.
Many scholars recognize the evident exactness of the pyramid's
measurements, but doubt a corresponding exactness in the numbers.
It would appear to be all too logical, that if such a precision
were achieved in the engineering skills, then surely the numbers
behind those calculations in design must be equally exact. Nonetheless,
all too often there is an underlying suggestion that the people
who constructed the Great Pyramid, somehow did not possess such
knowledge. All kinds of theories are forwarded to minimize the
contribution; the knowledge was generated somewhere in the Universe
outside the realms of Earth; someone from another land or continent
gave them the knowledge; or, simply they made all the right mistakes
in building such a precise monuments. The exactness that we are
referring to has many aspects. One concerns the measurements of
the pyramid's four sides at the base: "north, 755.43 feet; south,
756.08; east, 755.88 feet; west, 755.77 feet" (I.E.S. Edward,
Many of these numbers are impressive, but the
most striking is that of 31104000, which reminds us exactly of
the number (31104) cited by Hugh Harleston regarding the
ancient numbers of the maya and China.
The different numbers are significant and should
be analyzed one by one. However, we are concerned with a single
aspect of time- reckoning for right now. The number that we find
most intriguing is that of 378432000, which corresponds
to the numbers of miles traveled by the Sun in 365 days; the approximate
time of Earth's orbit around the Sun. The 365c was also employed
by the ancient kemi who used, like the maya a calendrical
system of 360 days plus an added five days (365c). In this respect
alone, the figure 378432000 is quite coincidental. But, that is
not all, the fact that the 432 occurs therein (432 being the Consecration
number), once again seems to be significant.
We may see that the base length of the sides
of the Great Pyramid correspond to a fractal of the exact numbers
of miles travelled by the Sun on its journey to the constellation
of Hercules. Not only that, but the amount of time in which this
occurs happens to be 730 days, which when doubled itself produces
the numbers 1460. Once again, we find a number that corresponds
to another significant cycle of the ancient kemi: the Sothic
cycle of 1460-1461 years. (Cfr., Earth/matriX Nș.73).
Once again, regarding the second motion of the
Sun within the Milky Way, the exact number of the base measurement
of the Great Pyramid occurs within the time frame of the calendrical
We shall offer only a few considerations of these
numbers regarding a possible representation of the Great Pyramid
of Khufu. Many from of interpretation may be required to actually
comprehend the scope of this aspect of our studies, but for now
we shall concentrate on a single idea; how the previous numbers
may afford a distinct view of the measurements of the Great Pyramid.
The numbers that draws our attention at this level is that of 630000 miles/hour for the motion within the Milky Way. The 63c fractal appears to be extremely relevant to the ancient kemi and maya system. Elsewhere (Earth/matriX Nș.30), we have shown how the numbers 693, 756 and 819 are significant to one another through a 63c.

Previously, we have shown how the very word k'awil seems to relate phonetically to other concepts in ancient kemi and coincidentally also relate to similar numbers or number series. If we picture the previous numbers series as of the miles travelled by the Sun in relation to the Great Pyramid's dimensions, then the following obtains:
We must remember, that the ancient reckoning
system worked on the basis of a floating decimal place in computational
terms from the manner in which the numbers appear to behave. The
previous divisions, then, would show that the second pyramid,
theoretically in a line of pyramids, would commence with the k'awil:
819 of the maya system.
Were this the case, then one could easily imagine how the k'awil (819) of the maya may be a direct companion to the ancient kemi system. K'awil begins the second pyramid on the series. The sound ka of ancient kemi meant "double" (Budge, p.115); the double of a man which lived in the tomb with his body. The second imaginary pyramid is the double of the first. Any numbers of images come to mind; the embracing hands () of the ka symbol around the Great Pyramid in one. There could be others, as a box embracing it on all four sides at the precise measurement of 819 on all four sides.
There are many varied ways in which to conceive the numbers. One could imagine that 730 Great Pyramid in a line would represent 365 days, given that each 756 measurements represents 12 hours. In that manner, 730.5 Great Pyramid would be equivalen to 365.25 days !
In other words, at another level of abstractions and mathematical computation, the Great Pyramid's measurements could represent easily the numbers of the Sothic cycle of ancient Egypt.
The computations are unending: consider,
As we observe the manner in which one might obtain
the numbers relating to the Sothic cycle and those of the precession
of the equinoxes, the previous analysis of the possibility of
linking even these numbers from the level of seconds (") to that
of the cycles of the entire Milky Way by way of the very numbers
of the Great Pyramid, one obtains the feeling that we are confronted
with a basic design of mathematical computation. That system of
mathematical computation would appear to reflect the kemi-
maya system(s), whereby each flows into the other with relative
ease. That ease of computation way stem from the fact that both
reflect a single design. That single design may have been developed
from the very singular solar system that both ancient cultures
were evidently studying with a high degree of dedication and knowledge.
