About the Author

W. M. Flinders Petrie was perhaps the leading figure in Egyptology.


It should be remarked that Petrie was an excellent enginee4r - surveyor- metrologist. But there are numerous demonstrations that show that he avoided any implied "meaning". In this the mathematical and geometrical accomplishments did not see another level of communication. For an instance, when the anti chamber measures are "harmonized" the room will have an "absolute" volume of 1131115.091 cubic inches. The implication here is that it is a measure reflecting a volume of only 113.1115091 cubic inches of a sphere of 6 inches diameter. The volume as a number is the equal of the surface, as a number. It is not only that there are implication as to the circle but too that the number is in relation a Pi value which is again brought forth in the measure of the Granite leaf. Petrie was put off by the "ugliness" of the granite leaf as an artifact. But had he averages all the measures he would have gained a pure number of Pi at 10000 times itself. One of the truly inspiring "discoveries" by Petri was the Granite block in the rubble of th4e descending passage he gives the measures as 45 x 32 x 20.6. without altering these three numbers, so much is possible to be gained. But Petrie treated it as some kind of adjunct extra piece. It turns out to be an excellent book of instruction on the values that are needed to "decipher" the meaning all through the pyramid.
