The Co-Incidences at Giza, Rennes le Chateau and on the canvases of Poussin
Before we move on I would like you to take a look at the last image again. This time I would like you to take note of a couple of other co-incidences which occur in this configuration. The first is that the projected diagonal (white) line of the shepherd's staff crosses the yellow "breast" line at a point which seems to exactly meet at the point where the horizontal green line, which is this image corresponds exactly to the floor of The King's Chamber, crosses the vertical yellow line denoting the center line of the pyramid. Extremely interesting co-incidences and is followed by one last one of note. The left side of the pyramid in our image, which is denoted by the purple diagonal line, stops and meets at the edge of the painting at a point which exactly allows the pyramid to be drawn to this scale on the painting and represents the floor or level of The Great Pyramid. Again extremely co-incidental but interesting..
Closing off the study of this painting for now I think it is worth noting another instance of Phi in this painting. Here is an illustrated example of what I mean. Please note that the blue arc appears to hit the tip of the pointing finger while the tip of both staffs seem to define 1/2 and 1 if we assign 1.618 as the width of the painting but most co-incidental of all is that drawing an "x" as I have done within the half boxes of the golden rectangle the center of the 'x' seems to meet on my yellow breast line giving some credence that I was correct in assuming it was of some importance.
And finally I would like to show that it is 90 degrees from the diagonal left side staff and the line of the tomb and that the second staff is at a 45 degree angle. This may prove to be important a little later. Here is the image.
Let's now examine the lines we have drawn on the later painting, "Et In Arcadia Ergo" from 1637-39. To refresh our minds allow me to post the final image with all the lines drawn on it again.
This time instead of John Legon's image I will superimpose another image of The Great Pyramid (in cross-section) over this painting. Having done that it yields the picture you see below allowing the tip of The Great Pyramid to coincide with the intersection of the white horizontal "eye line" and the vertical red line denoting the center of the painting.
On this image there are many things to take note of. First is the fact that both Queen's Chamber shafts intersect with the sides of the pyramid at exactly the elevation of the yellow horizontal line which if you remember was drawn from the meeting place of the diagonal white line from the tip of the left side staff and the vertical white line from a projected course of the middle staff. Also please note that The King's chamber staff appears to intersect with the vertical white line drawn through the eye of our Golden Shepherdess and our yellow horizontal line. Again could be purely co-incidental but it sure seems very odd. Adding to the co-incidences is the fact that a (blue) diagonal line drawn from the tip of the far left staff and just touching the pointing finger hits the right corner of our superimposed pyramid and a (purple) diagonal drawn from the tip of our middle staff and just touching the pointing finger hits the point at which the descending passageway turns up to form the ascending passageway and then The Grand Gallery. So it would appear that The Great Pyramid can be superimposed over both paintings by Nicolas Poussin with enough valid and obvious control points to call co-incidence into doubt.
Before closing this page I would like to revisit John Legon's diagram and quickly analyze what it shows. Here is the image again.
What I will show on the next image is the golden rectangle superimposed on this image in both direction. Here is what I mean. I am going to remove as much print as I am able to and leave only the lines that we are interested in. Then I will show where the golden mean is working from each side of the diagram. It would look something like this.
As you can see if John Legon is correct then it should be 22.524 cubits from the center line of the pyramid to the center line of The King's Chamber. I believe that the correct distance is ...
