I went through the whole string on the plugs as well. My take away is the disappointment that you make a good case for a great many mysterious pieces of the puzzle that were removed. Evidence of damage from pry bars does implicate removal, as well as the value motivation. Makes me feel we'll never really figure it all out if that's the case.
Lets consider our chances. What happens to these mysterious pieces if in fact they existed, and were apparently valuable enough to steal? Even if these things were gold, would they be more valuable as a gold artifact or less so than the melted down ore value? Because if these curious treasures exist and haven't been melted down, the following are their potential fate:
- Some rich guys secret treasure, that may eventually be identified as a part as a result of its perfect fit into recesses of a pyramid's inner structure, very unlikely.
- Clear and obvious evidence of a previously more advanced civilization and therefore the intellectual end to all religions as we know them, in which case they eventually fell into the hands of the protecting government body that concerns itself with saving us from ourselves, while hand picking top security level scientists to do all the work of reverse engineering this technology all on their own, out of the public eye.
- poorly documented value that was lost passed down generations without the necessary information and therefore sit in a landfill somewhere.
All these scenarios prove a highly unlikely chance of discovery publically. Totally demotivating. If the human race really has a chance of solving these riddles, its more than likely to be behind closed doors. And what's worse, the only real chance of solving this is with analysis of an untouched pyramid with all its original pieces, which if discovered, would be annexed as top security control. So why should we bother with G1? I kind of feel like all this analysis is just spinning our wheels, if its just the discarded and incomplete refuse of the pyramid evidence so nonthreatening in the sum of its implications that its deemed ok for public consumption.
Really for people who share this interest, our only hope lies in the every increasing speed of the exchange of information. Things used to be easy to cover up and control. Now you slip up once and immediately the entire world knows about it. Hopefully because of this inherently failing system of control, there will be too much public outcry each time its revealed we are being kept in the dark, and the system of control will cave in. Hopefully that's in our lifetime. Consider how much more cool stuff there would be to examine than these incomplete broken ravaged monoliths.
Sorry about the digression... Cheers
