My theory is that governments actively promote these daft theories to keep our attention of the nasty shit that is really happening.
I don't know about promoting, per se, but Chomsky has always said that the Bush administration remained tight lipped on the "truther" movement - which let's face it, ought to have appalled them - as it made for a handy diversion from the greatly more sinister reality of the Patriot Act, etc.
I've actually now "dug a little deeper" and been on Google earth and done this (sad bastard that I am) and I call phooey.
Google Earth only goes to 6 decimal places on Long/Lat (I suppose he could be using the pro version) and anyway, at the equator 1 degree is equal to 111320m, so 0.0000001 of a degree would be round about a centimetre. How can he judge the centre of the grand gallery from an external view of the Pyramid to an accuracy of 1cm. What he is actually saying is some random point on the pyramid, which may or may not align with the centre of the Grand Gallery is the same as the speed of light. Of course, this will apply to any building that just happens to be situated 29 degrees 58 minutes or so above the equator.

When?
So it is inaccurate by 170 miles, so , in fact, it is not accurate at all, and is just a random statistic.Fact 3: Equatorial Circumference of the Earth: The Pyramid embodies a scale ratio of 1/43,200. The perimeter of the base * 43,200 = 24,734.94 miles, which is within 170 miles of the equatorial circumference of the earth.So it is not accurate again.
Fact 4: Earth's Polar Radius: The Pyramid embodies a scale ratio of 1/43,200. The height * 43200 = 3,938.685 miles, which is the polar radius of the earth to within 11 mi.How big is a cubit? Does the same apply if you use feet and inches, or metres?
Fact 5: Earth's Volume: The product of the pyramid's volume and density times 10^15 equals the ratio of volume to density of the earth. [10,339,823.3 cubic cubits * 0.4078994 * 10^15 = 4.21760772 x 10^21 cubic cubits = 259.93 x 10^9 cubic miles]Where in the instruction book does it say that you have to remove the capstone for this equation to work?. And what the bloody hell is a "Pyramid inch". Does the equation work in different values (SI units, Feet and inches?)or does some mythical unit (i.e. the pyramid inch) have to be introduced to make the equations work.
Fact 6: The Light Equation: The height of the Great Pyramid, minus the height of the capstone represents one millionth the time it takes light to travel the mean radius of the earth's orbit around the sun (1 astronomical unit) using 1 Pyramid Inch equals 24 hours (mean solar day). [(5,813.2355653 - 103.0369176) /
10^6 = .0057101986+ days = 493.36116 seconds = 8 minutes, 13.36 seconds]And?
Fact 7: The Sun's Parallax: The size of the earth as viewed from the Sun and expressed as an angle and generally taken to be 1/2 the diameter at the equator (Solar Equatorial Parallax) is 8.9008091 seconds of arc using 91848,817 miles as the mean distance to the sun and 3,963.4914 miles as the equatorial radius. The distance between the mean socket level and the height of the levelled bedrock is 8.9008 Pyramid Inches.
How many other buildings on Earth can have similar equations applied to them. I bet I could invent "The Nottingham inch" and then work out an equation that would mean that Nottingham castle is in proportion to the third moon of Saturn.
Coincidence?
Tropix,
I've been listening to a few songs in 432hz and I'm not sure if it really is making a difference to me. I think I can hear a difference, and I do think the sound is clearer. However, that might be because I'm listening harder for different sounds and automatically coming to that conclusion. Sort of forcing the issue because I want it to sound better, if you will.
I'm going to keep at it though, maybe listen to 432hz for so long that switching back will sound horrible as my ears have gotten used to the more natural sound.
Thanks for bringing the issue to attention though, as I'd never heard of it before and I'm enjoying the exploration! Sod the Nazi conspiracy theory, it's the less interesting side of it.
"Charlie don't surf for his hamburger momma!!"
Take it or leave it. I certainly don't take it as gospel but I'm open to the possibility that there is something extraordinary about it. These sorts of numbers are only interesting when paired with the other mysteries surrounding the Giza pyramids - how they were built etc.
I found this video interesting also. I'm sure you won't give a shit, and that's fine. I'm not sure what a 'period of light' entails, but again, I'm open to the possibility of it all.
You can prove anything with facts.

It's an interesting one mate. At first I felt the same as you and it felt like I was trying to convince myself that it sounded better. It felt natural after a while though. It's tough to explain but each note feels clear, like you say, or clean.
'Imagine' is a good example. The piano at 432hz feels good:
The regular version still sounds pretty good but something doesn't resonate. It's weird as hell and tough to describe.
I listened to the first bar of each and 432 has a seemingly warmer timbre to it.
Try listening to them both at the same time, it's lovely.
I do suspect, however, that the 440hz version is actually a bit ropey because it was probably recorded directly from an old edition of Top of the Pops on VHS. It's a few seconds longer too, which means either the 432hz is sped up or more likely the 440hz one has slowed down in the process of being transferred to digital format, which would explain why it sounds more like a badly tuned C minor rather than a lovely warm C major.
Back on to astronomical calculations I've got a book about that somewhere which seemed convincing many years ago when I last read it.
It involved sacred rods
Our own megalithic monuments share similar traits.
What about the secret colonies on the moon and in the south pole, as well as the death rays...
I find the secret missions by the Russians when the space race was on where they lost cosmonauts in space and they could be heard by Italian radio screaming for help interesting and intriguing.
Here's another one that caught my eye - a bloke called Stan Meyers invented a water fuel cell which could run a car. The government took an interest but he died suddenly under 'mysterious circumstances'. Free energy for your car doesn't sound too good to those running the oil industry.
Who says I don't give a shit. I just think all the mathematical stuff you posted is certainly up for debate, and is absolutely meaningless anyway-because what does it tell us about the Pyramids?
I prefer more down-to -earth facts, like the Pyramids at Giza are the only ones that have an angle of 52 degrees. Why is this important? Because it is only at this angle that the mathematical pi factor comes in to play, as only at this angle that the height to circumference of the base is in the exact ratio as a radius/circumference of a circle. This means that the Builders must have had a knowledge of Pi (and , indeed a knowledge of phi, or "the Golden Section). Now these are facts-hard facts that can be obtained by using yards, metres, fairy steps and giant strides, or any method of measurement you require, because they are ratios. They do not require the introduction of a mythical unit to make them work.
What about The Devil's Footprints?
There is some information on the 'pyramid inch' here:
