Sun metrics & earth-based measures

Two different topics have been brought up simultaneously.  One is 
similarities in Egyptian measures (Great Pyramid) and the oldest 
pyramid center in Mexico (Teotihuacan).   The other is the diameter 
and distance of the sun from earth in ancient and contemporary 

Correspondences between many ancient measuring systems is explained 
by geodetic (earth-based) measures.  Geometry literally means earth 
measure ("geo" for earth and "metria" for measure)  Measures of the 
earth were central in key ancient centers of learning.  

The Egyptians used several sets of measures for various purposes, so 
that cubits had different values in different contexts.  The 
Phoenicians borrowed the Egyptian counting and measuring systems for 
trade throughout the Mediterranean.  The European metric system was 
borrowed from the Egyptians, but does not contain the full array of 
values the Egyptians anciently used.

The inner planets of the solar system approximate the Fibonnaci 
sequence, which, in turn, approxmates phi ratios.  Once an earth-
based measure was established, ratios could be applied with 
considerable accuracy.  The Pythagorean Lambdoma is a simple matrix 
that easily calculates ratios of octaves used as the basis of 
Western music and can be applied to numerous natural systems.

I don't know the basis of the modern mile, and I've never paid much 
attention to it since it was very likely divorced from the natural 
relationships that the ancients used.  I suspect that many 
mathematical keys were protected in the mystery schools far longer 
than generally suspected.

Zero emerged from the Vedic temples around 1000 CE then spread 
through the Middle East and into Europe.  Zero was invented in 
ancient Mexico circa 300 BCE where it was used with the same dot-bar 
numbering system used in the Vedic temples.

The Maya were a pantribal order of scholars who calculated the 
calendar and built pyramids, similar to the mystery schools in the 
Egypt and Greece.  The Maya were not a tribe.  There are more than 
35 native tribes in Guatemala, but only one pan-tribal order of Maya 
that have managed survive everything history could throw at them.

I'll be happy to look up the geodetic correspondences to some of the 
ancient measuring systems if anyone is interested.  I strongly 
recommend the book I mentioned last week, "Civilization One."  It 
can be purchased through
