  "abstract": "<p><em>A mathematics course from the Zep Tepi era, where we plan and analyse a large building site, showing how the design mirrors the stars.</em></p>\n\n<p>A simple and elegant explanation of how Giza, with six main pyramids, was laid out, using &radic;2, &radic;3, &radic;5, &pi; and &phi;. The design incorporates the necessary elements for squaring the circle, area-wise. The design matches the heavens around 55.5k BCE. This could force a rethink of at least the history of mathematics, if not the broader human timeline. This effectively solves the puzzle of how Giza was laid out.</p>",
