What do you know about Merer's log that leads you to that conclusion?

Interesting take on cause-and-effect. How can you be sure that the Great Pyramid (and perhaps one or more other early stone pyramids) wasn't already ancient by the time the Dynastic culture arrived? How can you be so sure that the Dynastics didn't create the funerary paradigm as a way to account for the otherwise inexplicable presence of those huge objects?
