They only appear to be on the surface because you don't understand their premises.

Yes, I made that up out of logic and evidence and even predicted it in advance. Remember this is the chief reason I wanted them to do infrared scanning.

Don't get me wrong, there's a whole lot more important things that will show up on scans if done properly (yes, I can even tell you what they are) but this one is easiest to find and shows the most important facts of all.

More accurately I assumed ballast was used as a counterweight and the sole easy ballast is water.

I don't think like you do.

Nonsense. I assumed the PT was the blatherings of sun addled bumpkins until I began to understand it.

No, not an assumption.

Only about 90% of the mentions of water are about geysers but there are far more than you could imagine because the word "water" doesn't necessarily appear. For instance the word "set" or "seth" meant standing water or expelled water.

Water is key. Just as in the deserts of ancient Egypt where water was life it still is today, everywhere.

This is a tentatice conclusion based on many observations, not an assumption.

I can only translate a few words. The rest I discovered their meaning through context.

I've linked this for you numerous times and you choose to ignore it.

I made no special assumptions whatsoever about the Egyptians or their work. All my "assumptions" are actually more observations from a lifetime of thinking about such things. I never assumed things like they were changeless and superstitious and dragged tombs up ramps. This is Egyptology that has made such assumptions. I have extensive experience in many areas and especially moving heavy objects. I know for a fact that you don't fight heavy objects whether you want to move one or 2 1/2 million of them. You aren't fighting the object you are fighting the "heavy" and heavy is merely a measure of how hard it will fight back. If you don't believe fighting 70 tons up a hill is difficult then ya oughtta try it.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
