Calibration introduction

In case you have arrived at this page without having read the last page of the previous section, the following is a repetition of the last paragraph of that page.

• We know that because the mathematics and computing required to produce the dynamic geometry up to this point is significant, then the architects of the pyramid must be highly technologically advanced.

• They know that if we have got to the point here we recognise their architectural design, then we also must be technologically advanced to the level where we can reproduce their work.

This mutual understanding is fundamental to the rest of the work, where all pretense that this building was built by iron age man is rejected without further question.

Calibration

The purpose of calibrating this system is so that instead of using the WGS84 ellipsoid as a reference ellipsoid, we use the same reference ellipsoid that the building's architects used when they designed the pyramid. The system is put together in such a way that the precise architect's reference ellipsoid can be determined. Specifically, the three defining parameters that need to be determined are

• The scale of the model
• The eccentricity of the Earth's reference ellipsoid
• The length of the Earth reference ellipsoid's axes

In this section of the work the scale of the model will be determined with absolute precision using the architect's design system and the first steps in establishing the Earth's size and shape will be made.
