Secrets of spacetime
We explored the spacial diagram below when we used it to derive the Royal Cubit. But this lotus has a temporal aspect as well.
Indeed, the circle above not only refers to our physical sun but also our solar year (1,461 days). If the circumference of the circle is equal to the perimeter of the square then we can make each side length equal to 365.25 days. By nesting the square four times using √2, the lunar cycle also becomes apparent: 91.31 days. This then, is the temporal pattern behind the Royal Calendar.
You may have noticed the avian term “nested”. This is a reference to Horus the sun god—portrayed as a falcon who gives life to the solar system. He was usually depicted wearing a red and white crown as a symbol of kingship over the kingdom of Egypt.
