The Miami Circle ... Some Unifying Numbers
The polar radius of Earth is 3437.746771 nautical miles. BTW ... isn't it interesting that a latitude minute on Earth 'just happens' to equal a nautical mile, while our convention of arc-minutes on 'any circumference' is equal to the polar circumference of Earth in nautical miles ? 21600 .
We use a statute mile of 5280 Feet. Could there be a direct "connection" between our 360-degree convention ( number of equal segments on 'any circumference' ), and the 5280 Feet in a statute mile ? Consider the mean (average) diameters of Earth and The Moon ... 7920 statute miles and 2160 statute miles. BTW ... notice that 2160 is a base-ten harmonic of 21600 . The ratio of those mean diameters is 3.666666667. Now ... consider the tetrahedron, and Richard C. Hoagland's "hyperdimensional physics" model of two interconnected tetrahedra, in a 3-D "Star-of-David" pattern, circumscribed in a rotating sphere. A tetrahedron has 720 degrees of total corner-angle on its surface. So, 2 tetrahedra have a total of 1440 degrees of corner-angle on their surfaces. Let's multiply 1440 times the ratio of mean Earth/Moon diameters ...
3.666666667 X 1440 = 5280
There's our connection between Feet in a statute mile, degrees on 'any circumference', nautical miles on the polar circumference of Earth, statute miles of mean Moon diameter, and the size-relationship between Earth and The Moon !!
