That is exactly what you are doing, playing with numbers. anyone can take a series of meaningless numbers, multiply them and divide them together to get a desired result. It proves nothing.davidk @ Jul 2 2017, 11:54 AM wrote: I got accused of just playing with numbers by someone who does not appreciate the significance of 39.60.

With pleasure I wish to add a remarkable fact re the dimensions of this glass pyramid and to the cleverness of its architects. This may be common knowledge anong architects but for me it was a discovery.
Length of base given in drawing 35.42 metres. I am not sure if these figures are absolutely correct so if anyone knows then let me knows please.
Height 21.64 metres.
I asked myself why the odd numbers? Why not just 35 metres? for the base and 21 for the height.
Then I looked at the number 35.42 and thought about the closeness of this number to that of a moon based year.
A synodic month = 29.53059 days x 12 months 354.36 days close to the number given 35.42. Ok that is easily shaken off as a coincidence but look.
As in the drawing the length given is 35.42 metres now remember Pei the architect is an American and as I have been informed was living in his Manhattan home in January 2016 he turns 100 on the 27th April this year 2017. I looked at this odd number and converted to feet 35.42m = 116.20734 feet and I saw it straight away.
A circle inscribed into the base of the pyramid at the Louvre measures 365.076 feet 365 the number of days in a year.
By switching from metric to Imperial the architect has given the lengths for a lunar and solar year. 354 and 365. Interesting that the metre allows this??
And not only that he has done it again in the height as he has doubled his base length 35.42 x 2 = 70.84 and named this number FEET.
70.84 FEET = 21.6m. Not sure exactly which value for pi he used but so clever.
All fair points, hotdog8, but what is this "solar cycle" the sun is supposed to travel? Whatever it is, it really has vanishingly little to do with the Earth. The Sun does orbit the barycenter of the solar system, but the chief determinant of where that is and how far the Sun is from it is not Earth but Jupiter, whose mass overwhelms all other matter in the solar system besides the Sun itself. Even though Jupiter itself is only one one-thousandth the Sun's mass, the fact that it is out at 5 astronomical units distance gives it significant leverage, so the barycenter is somewhere outside the volume of the Sun, and therefore the Sun "cycles" in a noticeable orbit. In comparison, the perturbations of all the other bodies in the Solar System, combined, are negligible. Of course, since Jupiter orbits around this barycenter every 11.86d=Ɛ.ᘔ3ᘔz Earth-years, so too does the Sun. As I said, this has very little to do with the Earth nor anything "Earthly"hotdog8 wrote: Jim I don't want to douse water on your revelation of a numerical secret but I don't think it is scientific or correct to divide the number of days in a solar year and end up getting a result which is expressed in feet. If you wanted to find out the diameter of the solar cycle in feet then you would need to enter in the distance travelled by the Sun in a cycle (ie. the circumference) expressed in feet, not days - you would then get a completely different number.
