Sechin Bajo 2 again, apologizing for my blunder,
world formula of early Peru (Chakana)

Here you are with my adequate explanation of
the modified inner sanctuary of Sechin Bajo 2,
unlike the blunder from yesterday

3 by 3 Sipan snakes, 135 by 135 knots,
knot 7.6 cm or a little more, corresponding
to the ancient measure of the palm

11 113 11 by 11 113 11 knots or palms

radius of rounded corners 11 knots or palms

perhiphery 26 condors or 520 knots

ideally 1 condor or 26 knots or palms
for niche and wall or niche and passage

The knot of a shorter calendar string would have
measured 1.9 cm or a little more, ancient measure
of the finger(breadth). Here again the numbers of
knots, you may then calculate the lengths of the
measuring and calendar strings yourself

condor 26
jaguar 30
Zarpan spider 36
Sipan spider 45
snake 137 (sum of 26 30 36 45)

Now let us insert the missing part of the Chakana
or Andean cross, the circle in the center.

Square of the Chakana

side 28 condors 12 snakes 28 condors
diagonal 32 snakes
32 snakes minus 1 day being 12 years

added rectangles

long side 12 snakes
diagonal 40 Sipan spiders

circle in the center

diameter 31 Sipan spiders
circumference 12 years

12 years would have been the sacred period of time,
counted as follows

32 snake strings minus 1 knot

365 365 366 365
365 365 366 365
365 365 366 365 days

182 812 182 182 182 182 182 182 5
182 182 182 182 182 182 182 182 5
182 182 182 182 182 182 182 182 5 days

1461 1461 1461 days or 4383 days

The inner sanctuary of Sechin Bajo 2 contains
the circle of the corner, radius 11 diameter 22
circumference 69 knots or palms, and an imaginary
circle in the central square 113 by 113 knots or palms,
circumference 355 knots or palms, while the circle
in the center of the Chakana has a diameter of
1395 knots or fingers and a circumference of
4383 knots or fingers. How are these numbers
obtained?

Pi is less than 4/1 but a little more than 3/1.
Begin with 4/1 and add repeatedly 3 to 4,
and 1 to 1

4/1 (plus 3/1) 7/2 10/3 13/4 16/5 19/6 22/7

Begin with 3/1 and add repeatedly 22/7

3/1 (plus 22/7) 25/8 ... 69/22 ... 355/113 ...

Begin with 3/1 in the form of 27/9 and add
repeatedly 22n / 7n, n being a factor of 198
(1 2 3 6 9 11 18 22 33 66 99 198)

27/9 (plus 22/7) 49/16 ... 4383 / 1395
27/9 (plus 44/14) 71/23 ... 4383 / 1395
27/9 (plus 66/21) 93/30 ... 4383 / 1395

and so on

Simple but clever methods like this were
discovered independently in various parts
of the world. They provide many values.
One can then choose the one that comes
handy in a given calculation (another way
of dealing with irrationals, but no less valid).

The Chakana may have been the world formula
of early Peru, surviving in the emblem we know
as Andean cross.
