Thanks for the info.
Ancient Language never really died but it was wholly replaced as a day to day language in the event we call "the tower of babel". It was never used after 2000 BC except by what we call the "Niphilim" who were the few individuals who could still manipulate the metaphysics. They died out as well without ever finding a means to bridge ancient knowledge and modern superstitious language. Only the ancient technology survived.
Many concepts from Ancient Language survived into the book of the dead but these were invariably changed because later people had no science and didn't understand ancient science. "True of Voice", "justified" etc are terms that were preserved with new meaning. If one were "true of voice" he could speak "the words of the gods" and thus have power and ability. If he were "justified" it means he used good science and lived a good life. It means his "prophesies' came true and he was a productive member of a society of scientists and metaphysicians.

I have to believe this is a misinterpretation as well. The lotus probably could be representative of the water and it was atum Himself which defined the earth and the sky and gave birth to shu and tefnut. If this is true then it was CO2 that sprang from the lotus. CO2 was a solar element so it is easily confused with the sun Itself.

Showing this with observation and experiment (modern science) is next to impossible when Egyptologists control Giza and refuse to do science. Ironically it is already virtually proven using ancient science. People don't seem to realize that a 75% probability of me being right in this case is tantamount to "certainty" in most people.
Building on the work of two centuries of scholars after I've shown that two centuries of scholars are wrong might be a fool's errand. But, far more importantly, I'm no scholar. It would take me two lifetimes or longer to build on others' work and then show that the pyramids were built with the weight of water. Then I'd still be left to show that ancient people weren't superstitious.
I fully understand the belief of most people that I can't be right because science is always a collaboration among scientists and gifted scholars. It seems impossible a disabled ditch digger can come along and overturn it all. To most people theory is established fact that can't be overturned and only be added to or amended to suit specific conditions. It simply doesn't occur to people that cosmology is stuck in the 1920's and most of the rest of science is bogged down in the 1890's. They see startling new technology and mistake it for understanding, science, and theory. People can't see that we use analog language or that every sentence is understood differently by every individual. They can't see the nature of humanity or the nature (metaphysics) of science. They can only see their beliefs and they believe in human perfection, omniscience, and intelligence.
I can't battle this by building on the work of others. This simply requires everything known to be rewritten and reinterpreted. History becomes an entirely new subject as do several other fields. How do I build on such rubble?
Meanwhile, as I wait for everyone to catch up, all this work, work enough for millions goes begging. It can't be done until the truth is seen. One man against this mountain of work is as absurd as one man dragging stones to build a great pyramid. There's simply nowhere to start.
The ONLY hope to get this work started is to get others, anyone, to see it can't be logically disproven simply because it is correct. That's what this thread is for; to help people see we are all mistaken about everything.

I would love to make peace but I'm sure there will be no peace until I get back in line. Until I march with all the rest of we lemmings I will stand out as the oddest ball with the oddest theory about how they built the pyramids. And one of the things that makes it oddest is that it would be so easy to test it.
