# The inscription on the Great Pyramid

There is an inscription carved into the rock near the actual entrance to the great pyramid. There seems to be only one decent photo available, but it is copyrighted, so you will have to accept my hand-drawn version instead:

Inscription at entrance to Khufu

Various people have offered their interpretation of what it means, usually based on a reading of Proto-Sanskrit or Proto-Libian or similar.

My own interpretation is much simpler. It’s basically what is arguably the most well-known mathematical formula in the world, taught to every primary school child.

How do we typically indicate “area” on a drawing? Usually by some form of shading or hatching, and indeed, Unicode includes some characters indicating exactly that, for example

Today, we use the Greek letter π to represent the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. A different culture would have used a different symbol … perhaps a symbol with a diameter and a circumference, like this?

Circle with diameter  … ancient symbol for π?

Which leads to …

πr² = A

And thus the mystery is solved …

1. Ian… since the “V” is pronounced like the letter “D”, I am simplifying your formula to:

D π = A

• Hi Larry

Is that proto-Libyian?

There is a researcher in Canary Islands that I wanted to ask about the inscription.

I have another interpretation which may link it to Atlantis, gut I need to check a few things first.

Glad you did not end up behind bars today, given your high-risk adventurous lifestyle 🙂

2. Notice I was wrong with my Dπ=Α because Dπ=C

But the final character, with two lines through it, could be saying “you can use this symbol to represent two things: Area or Circumference”. Thus you have the 4 letters revealing BOTH formulas. Better yet the third sign, the “equals” sign, looks more like the “approximately equal to” sign (unicode U + 2245) and thus something profound might be there: the second sign might not be pi, but 22/7… Harry Sivertsen has shown that many ancient sites and structures use that value… so the sign is saying something like this: “We are not using this sign to represent “pi” , in which case we would have used an equals (=) sign in our formula. We are using this sign to represent the relation of a diameter and circle. It is approximately equal to (Unicode U + 2245) 22/7.”

Ok, I have now earned the right to ask you to tell me your Atlantis version!

3. I like this approach of using a simple mathematical formula. Simplicity is the greatest sophistication. And mathematics and physics based constants are written everywhere in the Great Pyramid. My suggestion is to give specific numbers that they might have used. According to Alan Green -I would checkout all of his content- the number 137.5 was used to represent the duality of spirit and matter. See his work how exactly 137.5 sarcophagus fit within the volume of the kings chamber. 137.5 seems to be central to the growth pattern of nature, phi. The Kings chamber is a golden rectangle. 137.5 deg is also the golden angle. If 137.5 is used as the diameter then the circumference is 432. This gives you a value for Pi= 3.141818181818….. To corroborate that if you take the pyramid side length over the half base you get Phi. But not just any Phi. 356/220 is Phi=1.6181818181818….. Both infinitely repeating. To further corroborate 432, It is a number used to represent Sun, Earth, Moon, Saturn, and frequency tuning. The formula then with these numbers is (68.75^2)(432/137.5)=14,850 -a whole number- which I think is interesting. Any ideas as to what 14,850 would be linked to?
