I could have copy and pasted the entire book and you'd have said I was hiding something for omitting the title page.

The problem here is that you've misinterpreted what was written (by Petrie) and what it meant. You'll also misinterpret this post as well and then suggest I'm running from you. The canal is made of two parts at the stone at the basalt pad. One is large and the other is 3 1/2". This narrower one allowed water into the canal and was several feet high when in operation. It is now in ruins. The larger one "sucked" air into the system. This air contained large amounts of CO2 from the exhaled air in the grand gallery and the mehet weret which contained the gasses from the vent. Together the air and water constituted the "billows of the winding watercourse". The water was released down the canal and then shut off and the opening to the mehet weret was opened so the water falling and spinning down the knsti-canal would draw the air after it. When the water neared the cliff face counterweight a few seconds later the water inlet was opened again to repeat the process. The water was used to lift stones from the quarry and the bad air and gasses were released harmlessly down the cliff face.

The narrow opening allowed a gate to be opened and closed more easily.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
