Saqqara Ostrakon


Saqqara Ostrakon a Different and Exact Solution

by Arto Heino 2012

Having solved many numeric puzzles using Quantum Arithmetic, I decided to attack this interesting artifact with relish. It seems everybody had a go at this including Graham Hancock. I am glad to express my delight in the solution that I have found, revealing the true principles of Ancient Khemitian(Egyptian) geometry and part of the foundation of building and pyramid design and the reason for their construction principles. As I will show on a another blog entry, I have found one of the the final keys to knowledge of the ancient Pyramidic geometric cipher, no weird magic number or symbol required, this is truly exciting and I will notify all interested parties when my blog is published.

The Saqqra OstraKon was found at the excavations in Saqqara in 1925, the writing reveals this object has a geometric value. The inscription is a form of shorthand to a larger idea.

3 Cubits, 3 Palms, 2 Fingers = 98 Fingers = 1837.5  mm
3 Cubits, 2 Palms, 3 Fingers = 95 Fingers = 1781.25 mm
3 Cubits, 0 Palms, 0 Fingers = 84 Fingers = 1575    mm
2 Cubits, 3 Palms, 0 Fingers = 68 Fingers = 1275    mm
1 Cubit , 3 Palms, 1 Finger  = 41 Fingers = 768.5   mm

1 Cubit  = 7 Palms = 28 Fingers = 525 mm (using this conversion size in millimeters)
1 Palm   = 4  Fingers = 75  mm
I Finger = 18.75 mm

The small curved line and a few strokes and the numbers above is all that was needed. The 98 Fingers was the first clue, this would be the Perihelion or in QA the J factor. The plane number 98 didn’t fit with any Quantum Ellipse so a multiplication or conversion number must have been used, after a few attempts it looks like the prime number 5 was the cipher.

G _ H  = 490 = 5 x 98
N _ W  = 475 = 5 x 95
D _ Z  = 420 = 5 x 84
R _ B1 = 340 = 5 x 68
T _ C1 = 205 = 5 x 41

Now that I know J= 98 then as in all QA you can work backwoods to find the roots of the ellipse. These are the original root numbers that I found:

b = 2    e = 3  d = 5   a = 8  , these will give you J = 10 and the eccentricity of 0.6

b = 14   e 21   d = 35  a = 56 , these will give you J = 490 and the eccentricity of 0.6

The prime factor underlying the x 7 is a way of finding the other derived numbers in a simple translation as J=98 is not a Quantum root size it is a derivation from a physical measuring system from a Quantum number set.  This diagram should explain the geometry.SaqqaraElli4

The reason I exclaimed the true solution is because of the following hidden variables. The redrawn diagram everybody followed by Battiscombe Gunn is incorrect, looks like his pet theory of 28 fingers between lines was wrong, as you can see by the original carving the lines are not evenly spaced, it was only a crude diagram drawn without a rule, you cannot base the intention of the geometer on a rough sketch,  only on the description he gives and the approximate position of all the lines. All QA requires is some real numbers and an approximate shape to define the correct form.

These are exact values with no decimal fractions:

H _ W  = sqrt(  23376 )
H _ Z  = sqrt( 106624 )
H _ B1 = sqrt( 220800 )
H _ C1 = sqrt( 394896 )
H _ I  = Sqrt( 614656 )

These are the values when J=490, they reveal the correctness of the QA precision  You will never arrive at this sort of numeric clarity using any mathematical tricks, the Quantum Ellipse is a unperturbed form and non empirical.  The values when J=98 re listed below:

H _ W  = sqrt(   935.04 )
H _ Z  = sqrt(  4264.96 )
H _ B1 = sqrt(  8832    )
H _ C1 = sqrt( 15795.84 )
H _ I  = sqrt( 24586.24 )

What we are looking for is the gap sizes, here is J=490

H _ W  = sqrt(  23376 )
W _ Z  = sqrt( 106624 ) – sqrt(  23376 )
Z _ B1 = sqrt( 220800 ) – sqrt( 106624 )
B1_ C1 = sqrt( 394896 ) – sqrt( 220800 )
C1_ I  = Sqrt( 614656 ) – sqrt( 394896 )

Here are the final values decoded and back to empirical finger and metric measure

H _ W  = sqrt(  935.04 )                                    = 30.5784237 Fingers = 573.3454456 mm
W _ Z  = sqrt( 4264.96 ) – sqrt(  935.04 )  = 34.7282374 Fingers = 651.1544523 mm
Z _ B1 = sqrt( 8832    ) – sqrt( 4264.96 )    = 28.6720597 Fingers = 537.6011207 mm
B1_ C1 = sqrt(15795.84 ) – sqrt( 8832    )  = 31.7027812 Fingers = 594.4271479 mm
C1_ I  = Sqrt(24586.24 ) – sqrt(15795.84 )  = 31.1184877 Fingers = 583.4718333 mm

These sizes were not needed by the Khemitian geometer to their requirements only the right angle edge and the curve was needed, only modern calculus require these values as to plot X * Y curves. The Khemitians had no need of such crude mathematical devices such as calculus, they treated the curve as a different type of measure than the straight line. Now we can extrapolate the Cubit/Finger and metric size of the whole ellipse.

Length of the ellipse is = 2450 = 490 x 5 in Fingers = 490 = 17 Cubits 3 Palms 2 Fingers = 9.1875 mtrs

Width of the ellipse is = 1960 = 392 x 5 in Fingers = 392 =  14 Cubits = 7.35 Mtrs

The values are correct as no extra bit of a finger is required, this one of the reasons the Khemitians used these types of measure. The translation into quantum units were simple and there were no fudge factors that required PI, PHI or Log, no fractional decimals, only whole numbers  So the final outcome underlies how truly powerful Quantum Arithmetic is when fully understood and utilized in the right hands, when looking for a accurate solution without errors from empirical measurements and data from approximation using calculus.

    In reference to the Saqqara Ostrakon,, If you want to view my solution to the Ostrakon, please watch the video-section (38.00 – 48.27 mins) in. my video (YouTube). Modern Evaluation of the Great Pyramid, Part II. Just to compare.. Thanks, Samuel Laboy

      Thanks Samuel, I have perused your work for a number of years, I admire your hard work, engineering skill and what you have accomplished in the re-measuring of the pyramids and the many artifacts. I understand all your solutions have a personal symbol that you impose to arrive at an answer, this symbol is a artifact of a geometric construct that has at it core the squaring of the circle, as you name it the “Perfect Symbol”. As a generality the symbol represents PHI and PI relationships, Circle, Square and Triangles, as you know you can overlay such a construct upon most designs and it will always follow part of the geometry, this is the nature of sacred geometry an ancient and noble art.

      Regarding my unique approach of utilizing Quantum Arithmetic, it is only a natural arithmetic system of whole numbers that are just solutions looking for a problem. Abandoning the decimal system, Calculus and computers would be asking too much of a sacrifice to modern scientists and engineers, but this is what is required to come to a level of understanding that the ancient builders had used. As an artist I do not have these prejudices, I am free to explore and arrive at solutions that teams of dedicated professionals would never bother to look at as it does not follow their learned practices.
