The speed of light and the latitude number there have all the same digits. You might think this is idiotic because the meter was invented by 1600s French people.
If ancient aliens or Atlanteans built the pyramids, why would they encode their secret wisdom using a unit of measurement from 1600s France?
longitude, but I’ll stick with the simple method for now. The only equally mysterious site I can think of is Stonehenge, and maybe the Nazca Lines.
I am going to try my best to be as fair as possible to the ancient aliens. Therefore (4 options) From these really simple things alone, we learn we’ve got 2 x 4 x 2 x 2 x 4 = 128 lottery tickets, reducing our 1/1 million chance of winning to something more like 1/10,000. There are a few other degrees of freedom that I think are a little harder to judge, but still important: 6. That is, it would have been equally interesting (maybe moreso!
For example, I was considering saying that since there are three pyramids at Giza, we have to multiply by three, but to be honest the Great Pyramid is clearly greater than the other two, and it would be less elegant if Menkaure’s pyramid encoded some amazing cosmic constant, so I won’t raise that objection. ) if its height or width matched the speed of light exactly. I guess if the ancient aliens were really good at what they were doing, they could have given the pyramid 299,792,458 sides, but I won’t hold that against them.
But that gives you way more precision than you need – cutting off the last three digits actually gets you closer rather than further from the center of the Pyramid.
The only numbers that are doing any work are the 29.9792° N.
