Few of the world's wonders hold more fascination than the Great Pyramid of Giza, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World yet mostly intact. This pyramid is shrouded in mysteries, which today‚Äôs world is in a fevered frenzy trying to unravel. There is a continued debate among archaeologists, Egyptologists, and mathematicians regarding whether there is enough proof that the golden ratio (mathematical equivalent for balance and beauty) and the Pythagorean theorem are related to the Great Pyramid.
However, today, deeper research is unearthing facts that reveal a culture far more advanced than we may understand today. There are many reputable scholars that believe there is plenty of strong evidence that the Egyptians did have knowledge of these numbers originally thought to be found long after their time. This study will address the latest research on the topic.
