Yes, it was my mistaken extrapolation of what he said. I thought he
was saying the orientation to the sun changed one degree every 72
years. And  I just did the math 72* 180 =13000 years.

As I now understand it , he would hold that the orientation changes 24
  degrees every 13000 years.  Or one degree every 541 years.

My main question still holds. Does the orientation of a building to
the sun really change at that rate? Like pyramids, 4000 yrs  / 500 is
about 8 degrees. Has the orientation of the pyramids to the sun
changed 8 degrees? A recent poster says no. If he is correct, then
Peter's point about SV getting out of whack over time  is invalid.
