This paper deals with ancient codes embedded in world famous artefacts like the Sphinx and pyramids on the plateau of Giza. The same spatial codes are to be found materialized in the most ancient processed gold on Earth – the treasure trove of Varna Necropolis (4600 – 4200 BC). Amazing is the match found between those two groups of artefacts, bearing in mind that the gold from Varna Necropolis is at least 2000 years older than the pyramids. But the prototype of their sacred measure – the so called royal cubit – emerges in the system of measures related to the famous Varna Necropolis. It is there that I have been able to identify the prototypes of universal constants like the Golden ratio and Pi. The synergy of those two constants is there for us to uncover – for instance Pi times the Golden ratio. It is the simplest one in an array of complex proportions which come into effect in regard to primeval gold artefacts as well as pyramids. Surprisingly, the synergy of Pi with an exotic variant of the Golden ratio allows for the inference of a specific number, which matches the Inverse Fine structure constant. For this inference the ratio between the Planck-length and the Light second will be a starting point. On the one hand is the minimum span in the Space-time continuum (the Planck length), and on the other hand - the distance covered by light in vacuum within one second of time (the Light second). The sacred measure of pyramids is the royal cubit comprised of 28 equal parts called “fingers”. The length of the Great Sphinx comprises 140 royal cubits. It can be viewed as a super-measure from which the sizes of the three main pyramids on the plateau of Giza obtain. Suppose we were to divide this super-measure (the Sphinx-length) in 28 equal parts by analogy with the royal cubit being divided in 28 fingers. The result would be a span of 5 royal cubits. I maintain that (the Planck-length) times (10 to the power of 35) times (the Golden ratio number) yields 5 royal cubits, slightly longer than 0.523 meters each. Wishing to get closer to the actual length of the Sphinx, we might as well use a variant of the Golden ratio – the square root of (13/8 x 21/13) whereby 8, 13, 21 are consecutive Fibonacci numbers.
