My Research on the Cubit

I have already proposed, on 2 hosted websites that carry some of my work, that The Cubit (Royal, or Egyptian) be recognized as ... 20.62648063 Regular Inches. This would greatly support Ron Wyatt's length for The Ark. The 300 Cubits would be ... (300 X 20.62648063 / 12) = 515.6620158 Regular Feet.

[ and and Matrix Messages elsewhere here].

My work has convinced me that the designers/builders of the major ancient pyramids, mounds, stone circles, etc. .... actually used the 360 arc-degree system. Yes !!! Not only that ... they apparently had the technology to use *precise* math calculations involving Pi, and also involving The Radian (deg) measure ! [ Out to 8 or 9 decimal places ]. (360 / 2Pi) = 57.29577951 arc-degrees, or The Radian (deg).

I have proposed, on 2 hosted websites and in emails to various Lists over The Internet during the last 2 years or so ... that The Cubit is directly related to the standard math formula for Area on a Hemisphere Surface. This would be, of course, using the 360 arc-degree system we use today !! The standard formula for Area on a Hemisphere Surface is ... 2Pi X (Radius Squared).

So ... if we let the radius of a given sphere be numerically 57.29577951 .... then, 2Pi X (57.29577951 X 57.29577951) = 20626.48063 Square Arc-degrees.

Now; all we have to do to get The Cubit, in terms of *numerical value*, is to move the decimal point 3 places to the left ... 20.62648063 .... just floating the decimal point !!! Speaking of "floating" .... if you have a hemisphere .. like a bowl ... and you have the open-half facing upward ... isn't that a symbol of The Ark ?!

In The Bible, it says it rained for 40 days. In the Babylonian version of 'Gilgamesh' (as David Fasold points out in his book, "The Ark of Noah"), and in the ancient text, "Atra Hasis", it is E.A. who sets-up Utnapishtim ("Noah") with The Ark. The Sumerian Pantheon 'Rank Number' for E.A. (EN.KI.) ... is .... "40". In the Sumerian version, it is Ziusudra (pre-Diluvial king) who is set-up by Enki.

Let's now multiply the length of The Ark, in Feet, by the number 40 ... 40 X 515.6620158 = 20626.48063 !!! There's the number from which The Cubit is derived, again.

To me, this shows strong evidence that the builders/designers KNEW The Radian (deg) measure. Of course, The Radian (deg) is based on the 360 arc-degree system of geometry and metrology.

I have also proposed that the correct width for The King's Chamber, within The Great Pyramid of Giza ... is ... 206.2648063 Regular Inches. Certain scholars have written that a "Pyramid Inch" was used in The Great Pyramid. They never thought to check out the possibility that a Radian (deg)-based unit of measure was used, because they assumed the architect(s) of The Great Pyramid were not familiar with The Radian (deg).

My work has also led me to conclude that not only was The Cubit of 20.62648063 regular inches used by these ancients ... The Cubit was directly related to ... the regular Foot ... via the speed-of-light and the Pi constant !!! YES. This has become self-evident !! Notice ...

Let's take the length of The Ark ... 515.6620158 regular Feet. 515.6620158 = (1620 / Pi).

The number 1620 is a 'decimal harmonic' .... floating decimal point ... for .... 162,000 'Nautical miles per second' ... the theoretical maximum speed of light !!! ( See the book of Bruce Cathie ... "The Harmonic Conquest of Space").

Again ... we just float the decimal point 2 places to the right. We see, here, that the Pi constant ... 3.141592654 ... precisely fits-in with this equation involving the length of The Ark in regular Feet !!!

So ... my work here STRONGLY supports the dimensions of The Ark in Feet and in Cubits, as found by Ron Wyatt. And ... my work strongly supports the reality of designers/builders who had knowledge and technology FAR beyond the level usually assumed by most researchers into ancient human history.

Of course, this strongly corroborates the scholarly work of Zecharia Sitchin [for information on Zecharia Sitchin's work, or on The Sumerian texts, etc., then visit: ] .
