Could the kite be rising at an angle of 51.8 degrees? That's the slope of the Egyptian pyramids. They didn't pick that number by chance.
That's the angle of the slope to make an Egyptian pyamid able to "Square a circle."
It was 'proven in 1882 that it would be impossible to come up with an accurate equation predicting the solution in a limited number of steps with a straight edge and a compass, as was proposed by Plato. My understanding is that it is the limitation of Pi with its infinite value that makes a mathematical solution an impossibility. IOW, to a purist the solution might not be possible but to engineers, a ruler and a compass would be all you need, in addition to having the correct approach, of course.
I'm trying to get info about the particular dimensions. IOW, would the area of the circle or sphere be the same as the area of the pyramid when the circumferance of the circle touches the highest point of the pyramid and its base. That circle or sphere represented God to the Egyptian Pharaohs.
Also, could there be two different or three different solutions? Did Leonardo daVinci provide not one but two?
For example, would the calculation be like what is found in da Vinci's Vitruvian Man
? This link provides one. In fact, the authors discovered that da Vinci's "Man" provides a double solution all rolled into one drawing! The drawing is truly a masterpiece and shear genius from both artistic and mathematical perspectives.
The linked paper provides a summary of the Double solution on the second page of the pdf. Mathematicians might find the rest of the paper fascinating. IDK because maff
math sounds like a malt liquor, and I might have some. http://www.acdca.ac.at/kongress/1999goes...weller.pdf
As an added bonus, da Vinci's drawing also features a merkaba shape. Merkebas are comprised of double pyramids made of two intersecting tetrahedrons and which are considered to be another sacred shape to assist in meditation. Mer-ke-ba means "Light, spirit, soul" in ancient Egyptian, and "Chariot" in the Hebrew language of long ago.
The Star of David is a two dimensional depiction of the Merkeba. So the Merkaba has a venerated history.
