Why have 360 degrees always been alotted to the circle; why that base 6 number, when with five fingers per hand, you’d guess the ancients would have built their number system on that handy (pardon the pun) universal reference, so then 250 or 500 degrees to the circle might be expected, but they decided to use base six, so for what cause? Does it evidently have to do with the fact that the length of one side of a hexagon (six-sided polygon) is the same length as the radius of a circle circumscribing said hexagon? Yes indeed, because the earth would wobble one full cycle in the base-six-number of 25,920 years, this knowledge which enabled the ancients to calculate geographic distances by predicted positions of the stars according to the precession rate, the rate of the slow wobble of the earth’s axis, explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
The chaldean number system was sexagesimal (base six times ten), just like our nautical mile mapping system, based on accurate timekeeping, with 60 seconds per minute, and 60 minutes per hour, sexagesimal, the geometry of the ancient chaldean system having come from the methodology explained in the link, with the chaldeans having also used the same cubit length of measure as the egyptians, from the exact same astronomical mathematics for geometry, which means earth measure, utilized also by the global navigators of the day, who could sail to a mathematically located spot on the other side of the sphere of the earth remarkably to within two hundred miles, by the apparent movement of the constellations because of the earth’s wobble rate.
The base perimeter length of the Great Pyramid, half a nautical mile, is the equivalent of five ancient greek stadia of 600 olympic feet each, obviously not a quirk of whimsical fate, as the greek system is clearly sexagesimal like the chaldean, and earth commensurate, like the cubit unit of length, subdivisions of the radius length of the earth, with Japhethites having used mostly the astronomical foot unit of measure, the Hamites the cubit, and Shemites using more of a bit of both, demonsrated in the archaeological record, and now we know that it was all based on astronomy, God’s intelligently designed universe, for ancient mapping in this case.
