"If in my opinion....these cartouche sets in red ochre exist on Pyramids periphery and entrance ways.
This may indicate that in these reigns....the pyramid was entered and the graffiti added."
But, unless one can prove that the cartouche format existed prior to Dynasty 4, then any added graffiti would be post Dynasty 4. As well, the quarry marks in Campbell's Chamber, which are partially behind existing masonry, are in keeping with Old Kingdom style.
"Vyse and company may have others** show them these cartouche sets....which Vyse then confidently adds to gunpowder Chambers."
But even if the Khufu cartouche is a fake, unless proof of the cartouche format prior to Dynasty 4 can be shown, all that is gained is the possibility that the Great Pyramid was built by Huni or Senefru (another one?) So Vyse is a charlatan but the timeframe remains largely intact.
"If the water erosion on the plateau and old kingdom granite repairs did not exist
I would be inclined towards Khufu build or complete a project going on for anyone's guess."
I still support the findings of Sher and Gigal. The Giza plateau may have been a special place for aeons. We cannot prove that all repairs were necessarily effected in the Old Kingdom. Some may have been. A number of pharaohs, and even the Romans, may have been involved in this sort of work, post Old Kingdom, in many places in Egypt, as we have discussed.
"The high science of the chambers with wave guide ports and vast tunnel system going for miles in many directions."
Let's go back 150 years. To say, 1860. Would we be discussing the possibility of wave guide ports being an intrinsic feature of a building in 2016? Or, what even is a wave guide port?
I would say not.
The advances in technology in just 150 years are astounding.
Why couldn't there have been a similar advance in technology, within a similar time frame, in 2600 BC, or thereabouts, in the field of construction? You have already alluded to giant saws being the reason for the excavation of the boat pits. The feed rate to cut granite? Seventy ton blocks hundreds of feet in the air?
Seemingly out of a mudbrick paradigm?
Why is there so little iconography of Khufu? We've got Senefru, Kafre, Menkaure etc. The whole family, but almost nothing of the greatest of them all.
Let's imagine for a moment, that he did exist at the time of Dynasty 4, and he was responsible for the technological advances, the means of which, have since disappeared. And what is that pyramid all about? He's a mysterious sort of guy.
