> How do you get the water up 80' so that it falls
You don't get water up 80', that's what the geyser does. The geyser gets water up to 80' and you merely need to catch it.

A linear funicular is "two boats tied together". One boat only moved from 80' down to 0', and the other end could be anywhere. It could lift something from 240' to 320' for instance. They lifted every stone on the pyramid 80' at a time because there water source was 80' in the sky.

No, but he hasn't gainsaid it either yet.

Nephthys was the 'Lady of Builders" because she delivered stones right into their hands at every level.

I don't need the causways for funicular runs, Steve Clayton does. Herodotus said the causeways were covered and Egyptologists believe they have some stone from it found at a later "pyramid".

I don't have a problem with them having a wheel. But where did they have a place to employ a wheel?

I don't see that this is a problem. It simply means they didn't use a wheel.
