Conjecture, assumption, wishful thinking.
That's a complicated fanciful tale they had to weave to explain away a problem and have the gibberish make some sort of sense.

That you would believe everything they say without question baffles me. That you have memorized, bought, swallowed hook line and sinker all they say is... well... unfathomable.

You mean a serious beginner in brainwashing, guessing, Manetho, antiquarian fairy tales, lack of evidence, engineering ignorant pottery students? Who believe all answers lay in the graffiti carved and written by the homesteaders who were so awed by the monuments they found they had to stake them as their own. Yet had not one word to say about their construction.
The great pyramids - the greatest achievement on the planet at the time and for 4,000 yrs after. Where is the architect's great tomb? Where is the engineer's great tomb? Queens and family of the king get small pyramids and what did they get? A butler gets a tomb in a pyramid cemetery and they get what? Where are the great tomb walls carved with their crowning unmatched achievements? The means of how they achieved the amazing were not worth mentioning? Not worth a small pyramid or even a dedication plaque? Did they draw blueprints with finger in sand, only to be blown away? Were their extensive math calculations not worth a stela for preservation? Did they even carve their lousy initials anywhere in or on a pyramid?
Yet you guys think all is told in papyri, stone fragments and pottery pieces. Maybe because you have no idea what it takes to get a pyramid project started, let alone built.
