I assume, since you did not use quotes, that the above is in answer to MJT's question...

You wrote, 'The Kepler Triangle is the core triangle which defines Khufu Akhet. It is all you need besides the scale factor to design this pyramid.'

Does this design include the Great Pyramid's interior (the interior is taken to include the subterranean section)?
If not, then why not?


I find it impossible to follow your posts. You jumped from Kepler's Triangle & Akhet Khufu to Gatenbrinks's grid. Somehow the 3 are related? Would this be a 3 dimensional grid, or just a one dimensional grid on paper?

You speak as if it were so simple, a triangle & a grid were all that was needed to design G1. But that in no way begins to address the design of the interior.

A one dimensional frame on paper is a far cry from 3 dimensional construction.

I read the rest and it did not take me into Hemiunu's mind. It did not show that Hemiunu was the architect of G1. It did not tell me WHY G1 was constructed the way it was.

The reason for your links to the hieroglyphics escapes me. I also do not see your point on Akhet Khufu or why you used "the term".

We also cannot be sure that it was a tomb. Maybe, probably, most likely, it was not a tomb.
We also cannot be sure when it was built and what it's original function was.

You proceed from the traditional premise that it was a tomb, that the PT's can explain it's purpose and construction. I consider this to be a faulty premise having no basis in fact.

This isn't surprising, as egyptology constantly makes excuses for 'deviations' in every aspect of their dogmatic theories.
