My policy has always been to ignore personal attacks. The reader can tell an ad hominen and vacant argument from a cogent one. I'm revisiting this policy. I'll continue to snip (most) insults just like you continue to snip the facts and logic.
I must assume you're referring to my "interpretation" of the "reed floats of heaven" as being the funicular that you believe I'm "changing". This is simply another solution to the term "reed float" based on context in the Pyramid Texts.
926a. To say: The two reed-floats of heaven are placed by the morning-boat for Rē‘,
926b. that Rē‘ may ferry over on them to Horus who inhabits the horizon, to the horizon.
926c. The two reed-floats of heaven are placed by the evening-boat for Horus who inhabits the horizon,
926d. that Horus who inhabits the horizon may ferry over on them to Rē‘, to the horizon.
927a. The two reed-floats of heaven are caused to descend for N. by the morning-boat,
927b. that N. may mount on them to Rē‘, to the horizon.
927c. The two reed-floats of heaven are caused to descend for N. by the evening-boat,
927d. that N. may mount on them to Horus, who inhabits the horizon, to the horizon.
928a. N. mounts on high on this eastern side of heaven where the gods are born;
928b. N. will be born (anew there) like Horus, like him of the horizon.
929a. N. is justified; the ka of N. is justified;
929b. the sister of N. is Sothis; the mother of N. is the morning star.
930a. N. hath found the spirits well-equipped by reason of their mouth,
930b. sitting on the two shores of the śḥśḥ-lake,
I used to call this segment of utterance #473 "Clockwork Pyramid" because it describes building the pyramid. Then I realized that this was a dance and not a clockwork. The men and gods danced. And when the men got tired and sweaty and their feet literally stank to high heaven they used natron and swam in the water saturated with the spirits well equipped by reason of their mouths.
This is exactly how you build a great pyramid stated in the poetry of a different kind of language which was already akin to what we call "poetry". The different kind of language is caused and reflected by a different way to think. Their thought and their language rhymed with nature and was tied to the theory of their primitive science. As such it also reflects the simple axioms of their natural science based on the natural logic of the brain. This is the exact same natural logic that makes mathematics work. So the lines above are a sort of mathematical poetry that describes how a pyramid is built. It is unlike anything we know. It is like the way animals think.
As you can see the dead king again mounts on high to the west, to the eastern side of "3b3w" (80').
You have to solve EVERY single term in context and you won't know you have the correct solution until you can confirm it. The "reed floats" of heaven are merely more words for the funicular. Every word had one single meaning so ancient language can not be parsed and every thing had three words to represent it. It was the choice of these three words that determined its function in a sentence.
I don't think people are really trying to understand this. They are waiting for the scholars who all agree that you can't understand the English translation of the PT without a doctorate to tell them I'm right. Thank God for the few people who are at least willing to look and think.
Pyramids were built in a dance (set to the music of the human soul) with dead kings, and then described in a sort of poetry. Of course we can't see the answer even looking straight at it. You just need to change your perspective. Ancient language required a change of perspective with nearly every sentence but most modern people can't even understand the concept.
