 Hei, No comment about light speed in m/s at latitude, probably a coincidence. There is a really easy to understand reason why the modern meter appears in the pyramids. Really easy to understand reason why the modern meter appears in the Egyptian pyramids. Spend a few minutes to do the basic math yourself. 1.) Here is a seconds pendulum. Guess how long the rope is? The rope/rod is 1 meter long. Royal cubits to meters (Enter 2) No aliens, no "ancient technology", just a coincidence I guess. Anything you build using the royal cubit will contain an approximation of the modern meter. Basic geometry. My "guess" is that the Egyptians might have been experimenting with a unit of time equal to 1 minute of time divided by two using a pendulum. Why would it be hard to believe that they tried to divide the minute? Btw, do the math. Guess what the "arc length" of a modern seconds pendulum is? The arc length of a two second pendulum is 1 royal cubit. My opinion is that they wanted to define a unit of measurement equal to two seconds of our modern minute. I'm just guessing.
