This paper aims to reveal more of the hidden secrets of the Cheops Pyramid in terms of the descending rays of the sun during the equinox falling upon the azimuth of the diagonal secant position at the Solar successions.
The methodology used to complete this investigation project is based on the collection and analysis of data related to the erection principles practiced when the pyramid was constructed during the era of the Fourth Dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu.
These principles are the key for the geometrical representations of the balanced states across the residual depictions of the sun’s position relative to the Cheops Pyramid during the equinox. This research has found that the apex is an inevitable predetermined inclusion within the theorem of universal expansion. Moreover, the inclinations of the pyramid were set to predetermine the location of its plumb line, thereby serving as a guiding factor in erecting the blocks of the Cheops Pyramid.
The main conclusion is that there is a strong relationship between the Cheops Pyramid geometry, the erection of its steps and the solar equinox.
