Thank you for the opportunity to point something out.
Egyptology's consensus opinions, Wilkinson's opinions and mine do not exist in a vacuum.
Wilkinson's "Early Dynastic Egypt" is the best example of this. Each and every 'opinion' offered is supported by 23 pages (in the soft cover) of bibliography that insurmountably support all said opinions. It's existence has precluded my needing to suggest a reading list to those who wish to learn of this era and the Old Kingdom. I just say buy or borrow this. When Wilkinson offers one(opinion) that is still up for debate he emphasizes that fact.
Lehner's Complete Pyramids is at the very least an excellent source of things to google, wiki, or library research for one'sself.
In fact all the best known Pyramid Authors on everyside of the debates offers up the known opposition to their own ideas within their works Edwards to Mendelssohn, Lehner to Bauval, Stadelmann, Verner, Schoch, Hancock, and on and on. All em include bibliography.
Egyptology is not one or two assumptions holding up a Djed Pillar 0f anomalies.
Not every discussion here has to end up there.
Someone should set up an experiment whereby someone arranges stonework exactly as we find above the KC, and then tries to reproduce the Glyphs.
Do that, document it. I'll eat a photocopy of that document.
Meanwhile I'm going outside to make sure pigs aren't flying.
