The 4000BC, Egyptians began to bury their dead in earth "mounds", similar to dung beetle mounds, with the bodies of the dead, curled in the fetal position, facing the direction in which the sun would be "reborn" the next day, this being precursor to what we now know of the "Egyptian human" model..
In 3000BC, Egyptians began to bury their kings, e.g. Anedjib (c.2930BC), in “mastabas”, which were rectangular-shaped above-ground burial tombs, upgraded burial mounds, so to say. Eventually, Egyptians began building “mastabas on top of mastabas”, which resulted on “step pyramids”, the most famous of which being the “Djoser Pyramid” (c.2700BC).
In 2600BC, the Pyramid of Khufu, the largest of all of pyramids, was built at the Giza pyramid complex. Geometrically, the height h of the Khufu pyramid, when built (a height which has since been lowered, by removal of outer layers), was set equal to the value of the radius of a circle with circumference C equal to the perimeter (4 times b) of the base b of the pyramid, as shown below:
To build this pyramid, builders used 2.3M stone blocks, each block weighing an average of 2.6 tons. The pyramid was also aligned, astro-theologically, to various stars, e.g. the queen chamber was aligned to Sirius, and star constellations, e.g. the king's chamber was aligned to Orion, so that the souls of the deceased pharaohs could be reborn as stars (or star constellations) in the heavens (or night sky) of the afterlife. Hence, when Aristotle famously says, 2300 years later, that "mathematics was invented in Egypt", here we see this invented Egyptian mathematics in practice.
Pi | π
The important point to keep in mind here, is that pi (π), at least to two or three digits in accuracy, was already well-known the Egyptians by this time. This is corroborated not just by the dimensions of the Khufu pyramid, but by the fact that Egyptians divided their country into "42" nomes (states) or territories, the number "14" being the second two digits of pi. Mathematically, this number is encoded two ways, firstly:
The multiplying side of 3x14 can also be read as 3 14s or 3 times 14 or 3.14, aka "pi", which presumably was how the Egyptians thought of this number, mathematically.
Secondly, the number "14" is the days of the waxing or waning period of the moon, in a 28-day lunar cycle. The numbers "14" and "42", subsequently, become key numbers in Egyptian religio-mythology, as well as later Greek, Hebrew, and Christian rescripts of the former. Specifically, Osiris is cut into 14 pieces, which are thrown into the Nile, prior to becoming a "mummy". Also, 42 nome gods preside over the judgment of weighing of the soul in the Judgment Hall.
282 | Bio
The number "14", as touched on above, is half of lunar cycle (28-days) and the second two digits of pi (π) or 3.14. When the circumference of the sun, or 4b value of the pyramid, is set to "888" units, which is derived from the solar magic square, the number "8" symbolic of the Egyptian Ennead, the the number "888" being the three-tier isopsephy structure of the Greek alphabet, we find the following ratio:
Here we see the number "28" (the first two digits of 282), symbolic, presumably, of the fact that a woman ovulates once ever 28-days, and the number "2" symbolic of the fact tht two people have to have sex, at the point when the female ovulates, to make a new child or "new life", as we colloquially see things. Hence, the number "282" might have been read as 28.2 or 28 plus 2, as the Egyptians might have conceptualized this number, knowing that the Egyptians didn't nave the "zero" or "decimal" point. Whatever the case, the number "282", in isopsephy value, equals bio (or bios):
The root term of biology, or what we have been taught "life" is, as children. In plain speak, once per 28-day lunar cycle, 2-people (or organisms) have to have sex, to make a new person (or organism). Sex is what might be called the "282-phenomena", in Egyptian-Greco religio-mythology cipher speak.
The number "888", during the Roman recension (100BC to 800AD), became the isopsephy value of "Jesus" (or Horus in Egyptian), just as "666", became the isopsephy value of the "devil" (or Set in Egyptian).
Heliopolis creation myth
The fixing of the "height" geometry of the Khufu Pyramid, namely to 146.6 m (481 ft), which is equivalent to a 37-story building (13 feet per floor average), with respect to the "radius" of the sun disc (or sun god), at this point, signaled the apex of the Heliopolis creation myth, Heliopolis being the then top ranked religious capital of Egypt, the Khufu Pyramid built 15-miles west of Heliopolis, the other side of the Nile.
In this new geometric Heliopolis creation cosmology, the circle, aka the "sun" (sun disc) or sun god, was born out of the tip of the "triangle" (or pyramid). The tip of the pyramid, itself, was called the benben stone, originally made of gold (see: golden egg), and considered the "nest" of the bennu bird (aka phoenix), which was thought to carry the sun on its head, as it arose from its nest, after birth, into the sky.
The pyramid itself, considered to be the the god Atum, arose out of the primordial waters, thought to have existed at the beginning of everything, known as the god "Nun" by the Egyptians. This is the basis of the letter "N", a the symbol of one water wave:
The "water" or flood origin of the world is based on annual 150-day Nile flood, during which water would rise to 30+ feet in the air, submerging entire island, which would later be "seen" to rise out of the water, perceptual speaking.
The following are quotes:
- “Though it was primarily with reference to the properties and powers and motions of bodies that they assigned them their shapes, the latter are inappropriate. For instance, since fire is mobile, and since it heats and burns some made it a sphere, others a pyramid. They are the most mobile since they are in contact with the fewest things and have the smallest base, the most productive of heat and burning because the one, the sphere, is an angle all over, while the other, the pyramid, has the sharpest angles, and heat and burning are produced by the angles, so they say. Next, if what is burned is set on fire, and fire is a sphere or a pyramid, what is burned has to become spheres or pyramids.”
