 Circles and Stars

 Alnitak (Zeta Orionis)5h 40m 45.5s, -01° 56' 34" Alnilam (Epsilon Orionis)5h 36m 12.8s, -01° 12' 07" Mintaka (Delta Orionis)5h 32m 0.4s, -00° 17' 57"
 i've decided it's best to use a photograph, for comparison to alignments ...while starcharts, and flat projections are useful over long distances how it actually looks... from the ground... seems... by far, most likely especially for something which (in my view) can only be symbolic at best ...representative, certainly... but, the other angles and proportions... rule out any precise alignment to something random as positions of stars ...and by "random" there, i refer the readers to chaos fractal theory...
 ...i'll get to these angles, eventually... there are many geniusi on the case, already diagram (modified) from: Jim Alison (i added color and rotated to NSEW)
 ...Scott Creighton... is one such... geniusi... ...his idea... instead of aligning: G1 and G2... and then trying to figure out where G3 fits in... (which is right on the edge of G3, so it works)... he fixes outer stars to the centers of G1 and G3... ...letting the center star float around inside G2... (which works out to just a little east of G2 center) and there are questions raised ...in even distinguished circles... ...as to the actual or intended... positioning and dimensions of G2 ...which may be just... actually... ...another kind of repositioning... ...but, let's start at the beginning...
 recreating his presentation, in a single cluttered image a line (L1) is placed through Alnitak and Alnilam center next, a 90° line (L2) is drawn from L1 to Mintaka center L2 is doubled in length ... L2 is then squared (this is G3) a 3rd line (L3) is placed at around 45° from L2 (G3se-G1se) a 4th line (L4) is placed at 90° from L3 to center of Alnitak, a 5th line (L5) is placed at 90° from L3 to center of Alnilam, L4 and L5 are doubled in length and squared (for G1 and G2) the belt stars have now produced: a "Geo-Stellar Fingerprint" ...casual comments... provided... courteously... (...easy part... i'll draw any line you like...) (ok, got that handled... duplicate... rotate 90°) (here, i drew in circles, instead... still stars) (here, i had to skip ahead, to get the diameters) (201.5/440 cubits = 65/142 pixels... as G3 to G1) (201.5/411 cubits = 65/133 pixels... as G3 to G2) (which is automatic... using my circles, instead) this matches proportions exact... not positioning
 above image is the straightforward approach, as described above below image is the same thing with proportional pyramid overlay
 above image shows proportions are correct for G1 as to G3 before below image centers G2 on the center star: verifying there, too
 above image clutters in all three proportional pyramid overlays below image overlays Scott's diagram (below) onto original plot
 in the above image the circle for Alnitak around the square made from L4 for G1 ...reminds me of S1... the sphere of G1... 280 radius... 560 diam, to G1's 440 side and the squaring of circles which is also so prevalent this place... i'll try em both
 ...what this suggests is that the architects were inspired by Orion's Belt for just the proportions ...and as for positioning that too is proportional ...and, it could help explain... why (and perhaps where) G2 ...is apparently... off slightly... from the "Sacred Geometry" ...it's acting as a "mediator" between G1 and G3: central
 i'm also noticing it's not an exact 45° angle, crossing at G1 (and therefore all the rest)... but this is the specific rotation which aligns all 3 stars to the actual geometric diagram... and the 2 outer pyramids, to the 2 outer stars this tells me "about" where the center star is ...but, the GPMP source is a very rough map... i could make my own, but it'd still be pixels ...something like this, i want to be exact...
 and, i still don't know where to put the middle circle, for G2... ...for that, i need the lines...
 but before i can lay those lines down in the model i need to know which specific points they connect: L1 runs through the centers of both larger circles L2 centered on G3, approx. perpendicular L1 and L3 L3 is tangent on the SE edges of all 3 circles... but L2 and L3 are not parallel... close, but no... for the angles, i'd need the circles' diameters... multiplying any set of numbers, by the same factor preserves their relative proportions to each other
 the heights of G1 and G2 are almost exactly equal moreso than their sides: G1 = 280 G2 = 274.5 G3 = 125
 ```G2 to G1 heights... 274.5 / 280 = 0.98035714285714285714285714285714 reciprocate = 1.0200364298724954462659380692168 ``` ```by comparison, G2 to G1 sides... 411 / 440 = 0.93409090909090909090909090909091 reciprocate = 1.0705596107055961070559610705596 ``` ``` difference = 0.046266233766233766233766233766234 multiply em = 0.91574269480519480519480519480519 reciprocate = 1.0920098032698248086545322395508 divide em = 0.9528067560854446100347739692002 reciprocate = 1.0495307612095933263816475495308 ``` ```ok... G1 is 29 cubits wider... 29 / 440 = 0.065909090909090909090909090909091 29 / 411 = 0.070559610705596107055961070559611 reciprocate: 15.172413793103448275862068965517 reciprocate: 14.172413793103448275862068965517 ...oho... wouldja just look at that, now... one cubit off, and all those other digits exact ...thing o beauty... no idea what it means, tho ```
 5.5 cubits shorter or 11 half cubits so 11 full cubits for the sphere... (gotta love that) it seems to be acknowledging or making a reference to a 22/7 for pi
 ```Don Barone: Reciprical of 1.23456789 is 0.81000000737100006707610061039252 Add 18 and we get 18.810000007371000067076100610393 18.81 ... The reciprical of .81 is 1.23456790 123456790 123456790... ``` ``` 0.172413793103448275862068965517 = exactly 5.8 5.8 is TWICE 2.9 or 1/10th of the number you used as a divisor to begin this exercise. ``` ```Moving to G3 we have 201.5 but as you know that does not work. Using 5.8 we get 29 x 5.8 = 168.2 However interestingly if we subtract this from 201.5 we are left with 33.3 ... basically exactly 1/3rd. 440 divided by 28 = 15.714285 714285 714285 ... reciprocal = 0.063 63 63 63... 440 - 28 = 412 412 divided by 28 = 14.714285 714285 714285... Again a difference of exactly 1 Let's try 27: 440 divided by 27 = 16.296 296 296... 413 divided by 27 = 15.296 296 296... Let's try 26 ... 440 divided by 26 = 16.923076 923076... 414 divided by 26 = 15.923076 923076... Let's try 25 .... 440/25 = 17.6 415/25 = 16.6 ``` ```...since it's a square, i continued 440/25 = 17.6 ... / 5 = 3.52 415/25 = 16.6 ... / 5 = 3.32 ... their difference, 0.2 ... from about 1/3 of 10 ... so there's our 5 again ```
 all very interesting, but still not enough to go by every question still requires the others be answered first put that on the back burner, for now and move on to something i can do...
 here's Scott Creighton's diagram (which i prettied up a little) with the 3 stars of Orion's Belt (his red dots, my green circles) outer stars: Alnitak and Mintaka ...centered on G1 and G3 centers ...with the center star, Alnilam just barely off-center inside G2
 all combined with a greater circle on the 3 outermost pyramid corners (his red arrows, my blue circles)
 original image GPMP map
 i'll measure to make sure but the center of this circle ...is neither the center star ...nor the center... of G2... ...but somewhere inbetween (where the pink lines cross)
 before i got the idea to draw circles around the stars ...i was trying to combine the 2 diagrams... literally... which wasn't working... and many just drop it there... but not knowing nothing when i see it, i pressed on...
 start by measuring a line L1a from G1 center to G3nw corner for this, i started with a clean fresh model and i'll compare these lines to others later
 overhead of the 9 pyramids (below) tall objects appearing off center: ...wireframe composites are even more confusing
 (click pix for hi-rez)
 even in overhead mode, the program shows some perspective casting shadows, rendering higher points (like tops of pyramids) ...relative to the center of the object selected when zooming... or if nothing is selected, the center of the last thing selected ...here, i had all 9 pyramids grouped together (texture change); and their apex skew is relative to that collective group center, which is not marked... but is roughly the center of the image... for this reason, i have put down X lines to mark pyramid angles: G1: 440.. x root 2 = 622.253967444161821472743038... 622.25 G2: 411.. x root 2 = 581.241774135342065057494065... 581.25 G3: 201.5 x root 2 = 284.964032818178652333540277... 285 3 new circles from those, touching the corners of the 3 pyramids which i have in already (but i'm doing again, for this new file) and 3 larger circles, centered on the 3 small blue circles above marking the NE corners of G1 and G1a, and the SW corner of G3c ...that is, the 3 outermost corners of the whole pyramid plan... to find the center of the large blue circle (same above diagram) as the large orange circle (just off-center of G2 center, below) ...comparing it to the center of G2 (and other relevant centers)
 and these are the coordinates for centers of all 9 pyramids... ``` G1 ( 0 , 0 ) G2 ( -638.5 , -675.5 ) G3 ( -1096.75 , -1411.25 ) ``` ```G1a ( 373 , -64 ) G1b ( 370 , -180 ) G1c ( 364 , -280 ) ``` ```G3a ( -1088.75 , -1596 ) G3b ( -1181.50 , -1600 ) G3c ( -1269.50 , -1600 ) ```
 any 3 points... anywhere ...defines... or describes... ...an elipse, of some kind... a perfect circle, however... is another story altogether which may seem confusing
 perhaps put a little simpler ...in such geometrical cases there's a 4th point, which is equidistant, from the other 3 ...and is thus... the center of their mutual common circle move any one of those points ...and you redefine the circle ...you relocate its center... ...and change its diameter
 but let's see where ...the center is... ...for a circle... with these 3 particular points
 ``` G1-ne ( 220 , 220 ) G1a-ne ( 420.5 , -16.5 ) G3c-sw ( -1299.5 , -1630 ) ```
 ...wait... hold on a minute... the southwest corner of G3c ...is just one half a cubit shy0.5 cubits from 1300 exactly west of the G1 NS center line... and i could be off on that ...and the 420.5 to 420 even and the 16.5 to 16 for G1a-ne i'll keep that one in mind, as well
 ...my original measurments are from the satellite images... where i ultimately put them, seemed like nice round numbers but, the G3 satellites were round numbers in relation to G3 G3 center: -1096.75 W -1411.25 S ok, i'll move the pyramid later... ...or maybe just adjust its size... let's see where the arcs intersect:
 first, i tried -1300 even, but when i moved the G3c arc a further 4 cubits, to coords -1304 (west of G1 center) their intersections are each almost exactly 1200 cubits ...and yes, i am budging it, a little, to make it fit... ...but, i don't know exactly where the satellites are... and it's only 4 cubits and 1200 is a pretty round number
 all large circles are 1200 cubits radius large purple circle is centered on G1 NE large red circle is centered from G1a NE large green circle is centered on G3c SW large orange circle = their intersection...
 /G1 NE = 42.28° /G1a NE = 57.13° /G3c SW = 36.68° new G3c SW point ( -1304, -1630 ) (nice and round)
 all 3 of those line objects are each 2400 cubits exactly thus each 1200 cubits radius from their respective corners (reduced to 0.2 cubit widths)
 and the box for the center i've made one cubit square (shows how close they are)
 so maybe their intersection ...isn't a point... but a dot... ```...comparing that to G2 center G2 ( -638.5 , -675.5 ) 51.25 cubits east of G2 center 7.75 cubits north of G2 center 7.75 being doubled up from 660 7.75 x2 = 15.5... +660 = 675.5 (51.25)2 + (7.75)2 = C2 2626.5625 + 60.0625 = 2686.625 root that = 51.832663446903... ``` ```(7.75)2 = 60.0625 7.75 x 8 = 62 7.75 x 7 = 54.25 3 more than 51.25 and 7.75 cubed = 465.484375 which is about 25.5 over 440 ``` ```...figuring for the object SCc ( -587.25 , -667.75 ) G2 ( -638.5 , -675.5 ) 51.25 , 7.75 25.625 , 3.875 mid ( -612.875 , -671.625 ) ``` ...and, we've encountered... ...this sort of thing, before... it's approximately here ... ( -587.25 , -667.75 ) ...for center of that line ...and 51.83 cubits at 8.6°
 ...and fading back, a bit... to see how that looks for G2 (center is gray X on right) ...it reminds me of the angles between the 3 Belt stars...
 white dot is the same center of the larger orange circle for the 3 outermost points of all 9 Giza pyramids... next, i'll try to find ...the position for... ...the center star... ...of Orion's Belt...
 (click pic for hi-rez)
 and to compare positioning ...here's that redo again...
 below: Scott Creighton's diagram with the 3 stars of Orion's Belt (his red dots, my green circles) outer stars: Alnitak and Mintaka ...centered on G1 and G3 centers ...with the center star, Alnilam just barely off-center inside G2
 ...and the original... rough reckoning... is pretty close the center of the blue circle ...where the pink lines cross ...being the equidistant point of the smaller blue circles... ...is shown a little north... ...of where i measured it... ...but the GPMP map is sloppy ...and no one seems to know where the satellite are, exactly ...and at this resolution... diameter of the blue circle is less than 540 pixels...
 anyways, this is right about where ...the center star ...of Orion's Belt is supposed to be
 ...if you position the other outer 2 stars... on the centers of the other outer main pyramids

 workin more on circles o SC, Rob sent me this giganto pic based on the inaccurate GPMP ...don worry, i thwapped him... ...n a big ERROR IN RECKONING ...but jus cuz it's the GPMP he's still a floopin geniusi Rob Miller this one i have messed with all night and appears to show 2pxls less. But, this will hit SC's 3 points... and adjusts my pxl : cubit ratio based on your 2400 and the Pi on the GPMP to hit SC's points. I was using 2:1 ... now, the ratio is 1192/2400... very long cyclic.. but, interestng in itself.....44.7 cubits from G2 center and perfect with G1 all corners and 45* center.
 ...that last part he put in there just to bug me (geniusi r silly) reducing Rob's image an even 50% and redrawing the circles and lines ...and fading out the background... these are the pixels i came up with ...cubit... pixel G1 = 440 = 109 G2 = 411 = 101 G3 = 202 == 48 width height outer pink circle = 662 x 663 inner blue circle = 596 x 597 inner blue square = 423 x 423
 now, the first thing i tried to do ...was resample the whole image... to get those circles to size up to about... 666 and 600, respectively and then see... what the others be but, it works out to 100.5 percent and my image program rounds up type in 100.5 ...it changes to 101
 ...which is these... ...new dimensions... over by... that much G1 = 440 = 110 G2 = 411 = 102 G3 = 202 == 48 outer pink circle = 669 x 670 inner blue circle = 602 x 603 inner blue square = 427 x 427
 so, we know it works out to 100.5 percent
 if i went back to the beginning ...i cut that in half, actually (it only gives me round digits) ...and these are pixels anyways ...and the map is off, a little i could reduce it, to 50% again and then just expand it, to 201 but it would still be the GPMP
 the center i have for the inner circle... already... and hence, the outer circle... is actually east, not north, of G2 center and i'm more inclined to trust my numbers (as derived from the established sources) ...over... well... this silly thingy... S (500x500) L (995x1000) XL (1991x2000) anyways... the diameter i have already for the circle i want to be 600 pixels ...is 2400 cubits (4 times that value) then, 2664 for the 4 times the 666 ... which is 2/3 of 1000... or 1/3 of 2000
 8000 / 3 = 2666.66...

 ...and continuing on with the investigation...
