Again, I agree. Our earliest version of the "Rituals of Ascension" mistakenly called the Pyramid Texts is a heavily redacted version of earlier writing. It's entirely possible that the grammar is incorrect as well and that the individual who had it inscribed on the stone walls didn't understand the meaning either. There's simply no telling with certainty when or how the language became confused with the information currently available. There simply is no cultural context in which to understand the pyramids, the people, or the language. Virtually nothing survives other that the pyramid we can't understand and the Pyramid Texts that just looks like superstitious gobbledty gook to Egyptologists.

It's not going to be easy to sort this all out. It will require decades of work by scholars but the fact they've made NO PROGRESS at all in over a century and half proves they are on the wrong track. The fact that they believe it's superstition that made the ancients powerful and wise is simply ludicrous.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
