I do agree with you that Houdin's theory probably isn't really "feasible" in the sense that ancient people could have actually built it in such a manner. But the evidence doesn't strictly forbid internal ramps like ALL OTHER RAMP SYSTEMS so I would say it is feasible in the sense that it is logical, consistent, and not impossible.

They did not use internal ramps and one of the most important planks in the debunkment of ramps is there wouldn't be enough room to work and stoppages would interrupt all work. Internal ramps have these two problems in spades.

All the physical evidence is in agreement that stones were pulled straight up the side. This is simple fact. My belief is they most probably used linear funiculars to pull them straight up the sides.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
