I've said from the beginning that "aliens" makes more sense than ramps.
The pyramids exist so we know someone built them and it's unreasonable to suppose humans had some magical means to make ramps work. Aliens with levitation rays and sky hooks would work.

Circular reasoning is an outgrowth of assuming the conclusion which is n outgrowth of modern language. We all do it and we can't see it.

I see now.
Usually it just makes my head spin trying to follow it.
The ancient are spinning because they are being demeaned jusd as Petrie is spinning in his grave because Egyptologists won't take basic measurements while everyone's heads are spinning trying to follow circular arguments.
Such is life and death in the land of bobbleheads.

I doubt that the differences in ancient and modern people are really as extreme as I so often paint them but the difference in the way we think couldn't be more extreme. The result is that for all practical purposes homo sapiens died out with Ancient Language and we are homo omnisciencis. We each have all the answers to everything and bobble trying to follow each other's arguments.
Ancient people had no answers so they acted on theory rather than belief. It is this, acting on knowledge, that made them so strong individually and collectively. You don't need aliens, magic, or sky hooks when your every thought rhymes with nature and you are always in step with its dance. This is why leaders were "cantor of singers" because it was language itself that was "magical" and like a song. Humans were a part of nature and always in time with the music.
All the clues are right before our eyes but we see something else because we each have our own beliefs.
