 Classic OCT

 ...as i like to say... behold mighty gizmo
 there's 4 main approaches i can think of, right off ...and i'm... not sure what to call them, officially...
 ...the Bauval method... aligning the brighter stars corresponging to the larger circles... to G1 and G2 ...the Creighton method... aligning the outer stars corresponging to the outer circles... to G1 and G3
 ...and then the reverse of both of those... total of 4 using gizmo 1 and gizmo 2, for each of the theories
 "the gizmo" as derived from measuring the proportions... apparent in a high-resolution photograph of Orion's Belt ...see previous page for details and explanations etc...
 it might be worth noting, that with the entire group centered the center circle is 28.5 east 27.50 is half of 55 27.75 is half of 55.5 360 / 27.0 = 13.333... 360 / 27.5 = 13.090909... 360 / 28.0 = 12.857142 857142 857142 857142 857142... 360 / 28.5 = 12.631578947368421052 631578947368421052... 360 / 30.0 = 12
 that's how far off center the middle circle is and therefore, the center star, aka Alnitak... ...from the exact center of the whole gizmo...
 (click pix for hi-rez)
 still giddy over the coincidence that the proportions of my pixels (for the circles) were 125 to 250 ...which produced a length of 400 among other "approximate" numbers ...which i'm sure the ancients... ...certainly noticed, as well...
 approximately phi 400 / 250 = 1.6 400 / 125 = 3.2 3.2 / 400 = 0.008
 ratio of 3.2 to 1 ..easy.. and it's not exactly that (in the sky)
 that would make the universe very strange ...and our place in it... particularly special... which, i guess we can say it's almost both of those
 to paraphrase the intro page ...if you were to take a walk ...carrying 3 stones with you and every couple steps. or so ...drop a stone behind you... and a while after you ran out ...stop... and turn around... ...and notice... they were... ...aligned... just... so... that would be... interesting ...even strangely uncommon... if they were exact to anything that would be utterly amazing Orion's Belt is just very close ...and, upon closer measuring... ...they're even amazingly close ...even... impressively, so... ...and, as these proportions... ...found prevalent in nature... ...are also often approximate... ...if you were one to believe... in their inherent divine nature wouldn't be at all surprising ...and no, not exatly right... ...well, of course, it's not... ...it's not supposed to be...
 left image: recolored public domain OCT pic from Wiki's OCT page G1 = purple G2 = orange G3 = green below: wireframe overhead of Gizmo Orion's Belt proportional construction rescaled to align to the primary theory centered on G2, at ( -638.5 , -675.5 )
 the first thing i do is rescale the gizmo the circle surrounding was 2000 originally... ...grouped together, with the Gizmo thingy so, all dimensions change, proportionally and then, adjusting ...incrementally... 4077 units at 46.61°
 ...above image, maximum zoom on duplicate of far star sphere... that's as close as i can get it to align the far circle onto G1 as the ring for the center star ...is exactly centered on G2... and, at this particular scaling the large star circles = 511.66 ...the ones for/at G1 and G2... still being equal to each other which is eerily, approximately ...exactly 100 cubits larger... than a side of G2's base of 411
 from S1 560.0 -511.666... = 48.333... 48 and 1/3 5/3 from 50 5/3 as Phi from 100 = 51.666... 3 x 13 + 2/3 keep those in mind...
 411 + 100 though... you can not dismiss something like that as coincidental... it's irresponsible ...and misleading ...and speaking of coincidental things that skeptics will say "pshaw" to...
 below image: wirey screenshot notice how close that red rod brushes past the NW edge of a sphere south of G1 east of G2 above image: the gizmo diagram, from previous pages here rotated 180° for closer relevant appreciation ...i'm calling the brown line "the doubling rod" ...and subsequently, the red line "the quad rod"
 above image: overhead wireframe of S2e (red, selected) showing how the red and blue lines in the gizmo diagram ...are relating to the mirrored spheres of G1 and G2... duplicated south and east of their respective originals echoed here for emphasis with red and blue lines drawn on the image itself glow added for prominence
 both spheres are ...due south of G1 and due east of G2 at G1 coordinates ( 0.0 , -675.5 ) ...the difference in their diameters ...is 11 cubits... ...at 560 and 549 (for S1s and S2e)
 ...left image... perspective angle view from the SW ...of the area... ...south of G1... and east of G2... ...the blue line ...is SC's L3...
 showing the gizmo's "quad rod" (in magenta and white stripes) is tangent to S2e (orange disc)
 the orange disc as S2e has a diameter of 549 matching G2's height
 and the pink disc beneath it, is S1s with diameter of 560 matching G1's height
 and then i threw an octagon down with an outer diameter of 560... and then rotated it 6° clockwise to nearly make an alignment with the "quad rod" (pink and white)
 right image: wireframe showing the octagon is rotated 6° clockwise
 ...as shown above... ...a few images back ...the mighty gizmo is still rotated to 46.61° ...at this orientation the large star circles situated on G1 and G2
 ...below image... ...the quad rod is turned to 141.15° from 135° = 6.15° 0.15 = 3 20ths ...of a degree... ...close enough... ...for anybody...
 stay tuned, space campers ...i get it closer... later...
 (click pic for hi-rez)
 above right ...pan back perspective of the area ...octagon ...removed
 ...below right... ...curious... little... ...intersection there... a little right of center the brown east west line is from G2 (675.5 south) and 20 cubits wide (N-S) so, the red sphere point is about 10 cubits north
 this marks a corner of the square of the center circle 250 pixels square in gizmo ...at this relative proportion it's that same noted 511.66
 (click pic for hi-rez)
 above right image... overhead render view ...of lines... and circles combining "the gizmo" with intersecting discs relative to the heights of G1 (above, purple) and G2 (left, orange)
 below right image zoom view from SE on the magenta dot just north of the mirrored spheres' discs above middle in the above image and the same thing ...with the red dot ...above that... it's marking the corner of the square o the outer large circle...
 250 pixels square in gizmo, at this relative proportion ...it's that noted 511.66.. the purple north-south line is from G1 center ( 0 , 0 ) same 20 cubits width (E-W) the cloudy striped line is LL 120 cubits south of G1 south, here, made 40 cubits wide N-S
 and here again is the gizmo diagram ...rotated at 180°
 below image shows the double rod (brown line in the gizmo diagram) almost touching the G3nw corner (as marked by the purple circle)
 interesting ..anyways..
 in this same positioning (for gizmo) the smaller star circle... in this case for Mintaka ...is right on the G3w edge 1192.18 west 1446.67 south
 and then... i noticed... curiously, proportionally it looked like phi, to me so i did some measuring, and what it is, actually ...is nestled between... phi n 2/3 south to north SW corner to midpoint... or, from south to north SW corner to NW corner ...half of phi (0.309) and 1/3 that distance ...of G3's west side... of 202 cubits, or 201.5 ...which figures roughly ...as 67 and 62.5 cubits ...north from south edge ...Mintaka = 65 and 1/3
 the yellow shaded box marks the lower third of a measuring object made 202 cubits long and those i just threw on there... dragging n dropping, no precision... n it's perhaps tempting to nitpick... but, values are rounded responsibly... ...for example... what i call 125 in the diagram above, is actually 124.83 ...rotated at 0.28° the 201.5 base of G3 takes up the space of about a 202 base area ```the 67 as 1/3 of 202 202 / 3 = 67.333... 201.5 / 3 = 67.1666... neither figure being the actual point ``` ```1/3 of G3sw-G3nw -1197.5 + 67.1666... = -1130.333... ```
 G3sw is roughly -1512 but G3 is rotated 0.28° so the actual corner is -1511.51 ...specifically ...but i'm just rounding ...but that is odd it's almost exactly 1/2 cubit difference -1512 + 67.0 = -1445.00 Mintaka orb: -1446.67 -1512 + 62.5 = -1449.50 202 x 0.618 = 124.836 202 / 3 ... = 67.333... 1512 - 1446.67 = 65.33 north to third = 1.67 n south to phi = 2.83 a difference of -1.16 and they have near phi relationships between
 there's that 125 again as phi of 202 for G3... and a 77, which is nice (there was a 55 before)
 202 x phi = 124.8428657274... 201.5 x phi = 124.5338487331... ... phi / 2 = 0.3090169943... 202 x (phi/2) = 62.421432... 201.5 x (phi/2) = 62.266924... maybe rounder = 62.333......... 201.5 / 3 = 67.1666... + -1197.5 = -1130.333..... as the "actual" 1/3 point S-N ...with G3 unrotated, however 201.5 x (phi/2) = 62.266924... + -1197.5 = -1135.233075... as the "actual" half phi point with G3 unrotated, however
 ...so, strangely, coincidentally... they matched my original numbers based on pixels from a photograph ...the 125 and 250 in pixels is a coincidence but those are the rough proper proportions ...there's... lower resolutions... but it's 2:1 including the 400 in the concept ...dividing all numbers by 25... ...and you get... 5, 10 and 16...
 the gizmo group was expanded, from 2000 cubits to 4077 proportionally (multiplied by a factor of 2.0385) at this scale, the sphere for the star (which started out as 5 units diameter) is now resized to 10.19 relative cubits and the circle for the smaller star circle ...which in the reckoning was 125 pixels... (inner ring 124, outer ring 126) now 256.85
 here, i've duplicated that sphere and made it 20 cubits in diameter made the texture half transparent and grounded it to zero elevation
 where the stars apparent proportions are roughly relative to the proportions of values like 125 to 250... to 400 etc compromising between 250 and 256 250 being a quarter of 1000, or 25 x 10 256 being a natural double, also 64 x 4 ...as 2 to the 8th power, and 2/8 = 1/4
 and you can say it's ...just a coincidence ...that's... just how it happens to work out ...mathematically... ...geometrically... ...yeah... aha...
 ...first right image... view from the SSSW the Mintaka marker (duplicated sphere) enlarged and made half-transparent...
 ...from this perspective, we can see the star falls somewhere on the edge between the SW and NW corners of G3
 next image... second in the series... from at about the altitude of the peak looking down at the west face of G3... ...and from the SSW, approximately... the Mintaka marker appears centered
 next image... third in the series... and turned a little more... slightly now the Mintaka marker (green spheres) and the center point of the west face appear to straddle the apparent center 3D perspective in non-stereo 2D image each of these 2 middle points are at about phi to their opposite corner
 next image... fourth in the series from about double height altitude ...and looking almost due east... ...right at... the G3 west face... we can see that the Mintaka marker is right where it's supposed to be cuz we're looking at it, laterally where the pyramid meets the ground is almost an exact horizontal line thus, any perspecive displacement is about as near zero as it can be
 next image... fifth in the series ...pulled back quite a bit now... G1 is completely obscured by G2 transparent spheres our only clue
 next image... sixth in the series a little higher relative altitude G1 is peeking out from behind G2 ...but appears much smaller here
 ...about half as big ...though in reality it's slightly larger
 and the SE corner of G3 marks... on a 1000 scale the root 2-3-5 rectangle of the 3 main pyramids ...measuring roughly... ...1000 times the square root of 2 by 1000 times the square root of 3 and the length of that hypotenuse is 1000 times the square root of 5 ...intentional and geometrical...
 it actually makes math harder to understand... if you refuse to round off... or up... ever ...and also... math is easier to understand... if you remember to round off... or up, etc. ...converting complex values and variables... to their round equivalents... simplifying...
 but somehow the coordinates for G2 center seem odd to me, at: ( -638.50 , -675.50 ) but, not very far from very round numbers with my coordinates relative to G1 center so, i could go with ( -640.00 , -680.00 ) from the above coords: ( 1.50 and 4.50 ) ...3 halfs and 9 halfs... respectively...
 what i'm saying is... if i'd noticed this (which is one of the first thingies i did) and i wanted to represent it, approximately ...i would use those rounded proportions...
 ... 125 to 250 is 2 to 1 but put the 400 in there 125 / 5 = 25 ... / 5 = 5 250 / 5 = 50 ... / 5 = 10 400 / 5 = 80 ... / 5 = 16
 10 to 16 = 5 to 8 approximately phi ...rounding to that notch of resolution and locking on that round approximation on a small piece of paper or whatever measuring with hand size rulers etc... 5 to 8 ...or phi... is what you come to and a technologically primitive society especially already... grounded in such ...philosophy... would see it as holy
 i'm not saying the ancient egyptians built the pyramids i think they came along much after... beheld the ruins ...what i'm saying is... they noticed this eventually ...and what little there is, textually... reachingly ...associating Orion n the Belt etc, to any deities this is where they got that from... simply must be ...and this is not immersing myself in egyptology all the official scholars will now say i'm silly
 ```from S1 560.0 -511.666... = 48.333... ``` ``` 256.85 -201.5 = 55.35 ``` ```256 / 202 = 54 = 6 x 9 ``` ```202 x root 2 = 285.671... more on that later ```
 ...repositioning the gizmo... ...to the rounder, approximated G2 center coords ( -640 , -680 ) ...the "quad-rod" now "chimes in" more "in tune" with the 6° spin... of the octagon at ... 141.03° ... just 3 hundredths of a degree off from aligning to an octagon side
 ...looking northeast from just east of G2 the spotted quad-rod is now parallel with a green octagon side

 ```that lil possibility i quipped out earlier got me into actually modelling the theory ...and it really, seriously is something ...and this is just... preliminary but... ok, how do i explain this ? ...in classic OCT... with the bright stars Alnitak and Alnilam aligned to G1 and G2 centers, respectively ...Mintaka falls on the western edge of G3 and, i've already measured the 2D overhead it's between 1/3 and half-phi on that side ...anyways, and this is why ya gotta go 3D ...that far west, or east of the west edge to center on the slope, a sphere wants to be ...and remember, G3 is rotated 0.28 degrees... 6.0 cubits above the ground, exactly, to align to the inside tilt 7.2 cubits above the ground, exactly, to align to the outside tilt therefore, 12 and 14.4 cubits diameters, respectively, accordingly ...G3 is where it is for a reason... aligning to many other things and on this scale it all works out mathematically n geometrically square root of 2 square root of 3 squaring circles for precise positioning... and then Mintaka falls on this thing exactly ```

 Scott Creighton from this GHMP post This point on the SW face of G3 is what I termed the 'Taylor Point' some time ago after C. Wayne Taylor showed how the geometry of G1 and G2 'focusses' on this point of G3 .......
 I decided to see what would happen when centering G3 on this point and in so doing, found a near perfect match with the Orion Belt Stars and from that was able to construct the Orion Geo-Stellar Fingerprint. Not sure if this helps in any way with the spacing issue you have been grappling with You can read more on this here
 ``` in redoing my website a little bit, facelift thingy i came across the diagram of the Taylor Point which, along with the Chase Line, i put off not fully understanding the story behind it i think i would like to quote you on that just the top 2/3 or so of the below bit n further extrapolating, annoyingly in the geostellar fingerprint thingy are the G3 queens moved at all ? relative to where Mintaka falls ? ...and do any stars align to those new positions ? cuz, otherwise, i mean, i don't really have a problem with Mintaka not falling on G3 center, or even edge, precisely it's like everyone's been bullied by the right this silly lil technicality o simplistic semantics cuz it jus happens to be wherein the truth prolly really lies jus because the other 2 stars are aligned to pyramid centers doesn't mean there isn't some wiggy sacred geometry actually intentionally, purposefully, definitively ...missin the... whole... point, see... ...n therein lies the automatic irony but i am open obviously to groovy sci-fi fantasy like someone throws a switch maybe in the lightshow thingy and that whole section of the plateau moves ...shifting G3 and queens into specific position so the center of G3 aligns with Mintaka perfectly ...this being for special occasions only maybe some kinda ancient star party ...but seriously... i think we hafta take as given being mountains made o stone they are right where they're sposedta be for me next trick slash gimick i will measure the Taylor Point in 3D, precisely slash officially ```
