Abstract: The finds from the Varna Chalcolithic necropolis and from Stara Zagora (Bulgaria) imply a standard, based on a natural measure of length (Smolenov et al., 2009; Smolenov and Michailov, 2010a; 2010b; Smolenov, 2012; 2016). Paradoxically, certain measures have been regarded as sacred mainly because they referred to the laws and constants of Nature. That is why the prototype of the royal cubit can be found in Varna 2000 years earlier than the official age of the Great pyramid. It was the cosmic integrity of the Universe that ancient thinkers mentally perceived (and conceived) as divine. Thus, inspirational links have been established between the cosmic aspects of knowledge and the ones regarded as sacred. Along these lines a hidden correlation is highlighted between gold artefacts from Copper Age Varna (the oldest gold hoard on Earth) on the one hand and the main monuments from Giza on the other. It confirms the hypothesis of a hidden master-plan of the pyramids, which also involves the size and proportions of the Sphinx. This correlation can be extended to some of the Earth‘s main dimensions.

Keywords: Golden ratio, universal constants, gold artefacts, Varna necropolis, pyramids of Giza, Sphinx, light-second, Fibonacci numbers, synergy of proportions.
