The Irrational Mathematicians of Giza, Part 4

(continues from Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3)

When I started this exercise I was hoping to find “interesting” alignments between the centres of the three pyramids, in part to explain the curious “kink”. So in that regard I failed spectacularly (so far).

What I did find was a whole host of other interesting alignments. The table below summarizes the best ones, those that are within 0.5Β° of the correct angle.

I don’t know if this proves anything, or if it is just a curious anomaly. I am open to ideas from people who know more about this than me… πŸ™‚
