“One of man’s oldest mathematical quests has been to accurately determine the relationship between

the circumference of a circle and its diameter. Mathematicians denote this ratio by the sixteenth letter

of the Greek alphabet, À (’pi’). This value, which we know today as 3.141592 +, was first accurately

determined by Rudolph Van Ceulin in the sixteenth century. It is a ratio fundamental to the study of

physical things, as it gives a mathematical link between straight and circular geometric figures. A

proper ascertainment of this ratio is vital to mathematicians, astro-physicists,

others.

The pi ratio is one of the first mathematical features discovered in the Great Pyramid. In the 1850s

John Taylor discovered that the original vertical height of the Great Pyramid was to its base perimeter

as the radius of a circle is to its circumference. John Taylor noted that this pi proportion feature could

only work with the unique Great Pyramid angle of 51° 51’. Thus no other pyramid contains this

relationship.

According to both Smyth’s and Petrie’s measurements, the Great Pyramid demonstrates the pi

proportion accurately to four decimal points. The significance of this demonstration is doubly

impressive when one realizes that pi had not been worked out to this accuracy until the sixth century,

more than 2700 years after the Great Pyramid’s completion.” (

The fact that Adam is represented by a pyramid which is exactly a 25th the size of the Great Pyramid

may explain the reason for the Queen’s Chamber being situated at the 25th masonry course of the

building. This seems to be the Pyramid’s method of corroborating the Scriptural declaration that Adam

was made in the image of his Creator, and that he was the earthly type of the Spiritual Adam (

As the pyramid representing Adam is a 25th of the size of the whole Pyramid, it follows that the

dimensions of the latter in cubits is exactly reproduced in inches in the little model; for a cubit equals

25 inches. The number of inches in the base-length of the little pyramid is 365.242, i.e., the same as

the number of days in the solar year. The foregoing symbolical representation of Adam is likewise

supported by a number of other time-measurements, which
