The Royal Cubit

by Willem Witteveen

The ancient Egyptian royal cubit (meh neswt) was the standard linear measure in Egypt and was based on the forearm length from the middle finger tip to the elbow bottom. Several cubit rods have survived. Fourteen rods were described and compared by the German Egyptologist Karl Richard Lepsius in 1865. These cubit rods range from 52.35 to 52.92 centimetres in length, and are divided into seven palms and of which each palm is divided into four fingers (a total of 28 fingerbreadths or digits). The fingers are further subdivided. The cubit in general use measured approximately 52.3 centimetres. The exact length of the royal cubit is encoded in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza. The exact value follows from the right-angled triangle with angles of 30, 60 and 90 degrees (3 – 6 – 9).

A 30-60-90 right triangle is a special type of right triangle where the three angles measure 30 degrees, 60 degrees, and 90 degrees. The triangle is significant because the sides exist in an easy-to-remember ratio: x : x√3 : 2x. That is to say, the hypotenuse is twice as long as the shorter leg, and the longer leg is the square root of 3 times the shorter leg. The exact length of the royal cubit is equal to the 30-degree angle in radians being 0.5236 or π/6 metres. The 60-degree angle is π/3 radians or 1.0472; the year of completion of the Giza complex according to the book of Willem Witteveen is 10,472 B.C.E. The exact age and origin of the royal cubit is not documented but its use is also known from Old Kingdom architecture around 2700 B.C.E.

“If you knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, you would have a key to the universe” – Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla claimed that these numbers were extremely important but gave no further explanation. The numbers are related to energy and vibration as 3 x 6 x 9 equals 162. The resonant frequency of the King’s Chamber is 16.2 hertz and is equivalent to the second harmonic of the Schumann frequency for the latitude of Giza. In Witteveen’s book about the true function of the Great Pyramid, this frequency is called the ‘Golden Frequency of Giza’ because of its relationship with the Golden Number Φ (1.618). The resonant frequency of the sarcophagus inside the King’s Chamber is 81 hertz or 162 divided by 2. The Great Pyramid of Giza was a receiving antenna for the 8.1-hertz Schumann frequency. The height of the Great Pyramid is 8.1 x 18 = 145.8 metres in which 18 is 3 + 6 + 9.

The values of the diameter of the Moon of 2,160 English statute miles and of the Sun of 864,000 statute miles are linked to musicology. The number 216 corresponds to 216 hertz as an octave of the natural attune of 432 hertz instead of 440 hertz, which is now regarded as the standard frequency of sound on which all tuning forks and musical instruments are tuned. Mid twentieth century, the 440-hertz frequency was internationally accepted as the standard musical, but unnatural keynote A. The more natural 432-hertz frequency complies with the harmonics of the universe and better suits human nature. When the A is equal to 432 hertz, then the musical note E is equal to 324 hertz with its ‘Great Octave’ being 81 hertz, the lowest E-tone playable on a musical instrument, and the fifth harmonic of the ‘Golden Frequency of Giza’ of 16.2 hertz. The relationship between the Sun, Earth and Moon is based on the number 432 as a harmonious and universal constant. ‘Musica Universalis.’

The number 432 is a significant universal constant and the natural harmonic frequency of 432 hertz seems the only right choice as the standard frequency. All in perfect harmony with the universe and numerically related to the number 9, the ‘number of creation.’ All digits of these universal numbers always add up to 9 as if the number 9 is a means of control for the correctness of the specific number. This applies to all other frequencies when the natural standard frequency is 432 hertz instead of 440 hertz. The 432-hertz frequency is only 8 hertz down in frequency but a clear measurable difference in harmony, both audible and visible. The most precise musical instrument ever created is the original antique Stradivarius violin, designed to resonate at a frequency of 432 hertz, similar to all ancient Egyptian and ancient Greek instruments.
