Khufu - Khafre - Mankaure
The second pyramid of Giza, attributed to the Pharaoh Khafre has its base 33ft higher than that of the Great Pyramid, a fact which I only found out the other day (thanks Janine). Its base, as measured by Petrie is 8474.9 inches within the accuracy of the survey.
That in itself is no great piece of news, but what is quite remarkable is that, a line drawn across the Great Pyramid, 33ft or 396" from the ground is 8475.5 inches long - in other words the same as the base width of the second pyramid. Even more remarkable is that if you then superimpose the two pyramids, the 'kings' chamber northern shaft from the Great Pyramid point EXACTLY to the centre of Khafre's pyramid side. (accurate to 4/10ths of an inch!)
Intrigued by this, I have then superimposed the third pyramid of Giza onto the drawing of the Great Pyramid, and the ends of the shafts are once again perfectly aligned with the base ends of Menkaure's pyramid.
These are NOT abstract ideas, but factual observations about the pyramids at Giza. They would present a quite remarkable pair of coincidences, and point to the fact that Khufu's son and grandson have specifically designed their pyramids to align with this shaft.
Has this ever been noticed before and has anyone any comments?

Very interesting! However, you're abstracting just a touch. What I mean is this. You use the height difference of the first two pyramids but with the third pyramid, you just align the apexes (that's the plural of apex, isn't it?!).
On a slightly different note, if any correlations between the three pyramids are ever 'proven', that would mean that the whole complex was designed from the outset as one colossal project and that would have certain implications about the why the who and the how.
And on another point... didn't Khafre have another heir (Radjedef) who then had Menkaure? Are the king-lists definitive on this point or are we making it up as we go?
I hope that was useful!

More interesting mathmatical observations. While they probably won't tell us much, it's simply amazing what we can find out by crunching numbers and angles. Just keep in mind, there's just so many numbers, measurements, and angles involved, the G.P. has 'bible code' syndrome (with enough letters, random patterns take on meaning). Even the "great pyramid as a measure of the earth's existance" with all the important dates of history measured out inside can be psuedo supported with measurements, I think you can probably show just about anything if you measure enough, lol.
