I recall a few such threads but none very well.

Are you referring to the tendency of water to form caves near the water table and the fact that the Mediterranean was once cut off from the oceans. Evaporation caused the sea to drop 800' and the Nile wore a deep canyon all the way to Aswan to this depth. This canyon became a fiord when the sea reflooded and eventually was filled in with sediment. The river used to flood much more and carry far more sediment. The industrial infrastructure on the river we call the "valley temple" was some 30' lower during the great pyramid building age. Flood depths decreased markedly around 5000 BC largely due to decreased flow from the Blue Nile.

I can't think of any "mysterious holes" other than the "post holes" around G1.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
