In an absence of evidence CO2 geysers to build pyramids is, at best, a very remote possibility.
But we don't have an absence of evidence but rather countless thousands of data points none of which is very determinative. While none of these data points is of a lot of value they all act as a sort of compass pointing straight at the truth. When all the disparate evidence is considered there is only a single logical conclusion. Simply stated when it's considered that stones are known to have been lifted straight up the side and they had water at the base one quickly exhausts other possibilities. When it is considered that they lacked a vocabulary to express religion and beliefs then it follows they had no superstitions. When it is considered that Giza is a hill and there are very few ways that water can naturally appear on a hill then one must consider the possibility that a cool effervescent column of water might really be the power source for lifting stones. Water at the top of a column has a very robust ability to lift weights if it can be captured and used for this purpose.
I have no problem with the perception that the use geysers to lift the pyramids is pure crackpottery. Of course it is. But it doesn't change the facts. It doesn't change any of the facts any more than the orthodox position that everything is a ramp except the causeway which is a holy walkway. It doesn't change the fact that pronouncing everything to be holy has not answered any fundamental questions about how and why the pyramids were built. Instead we just have the same mystery producing assumptions that have existed for many years. We have no ability to predict or explain but rather everyone is advised that with each new find we have more evidence of changeless and superstitious people who dragged tombs up ramps. Every slope is a ramp. Every corpse is a bumpkin. Every chamber is a tomb. And every thought for 3000 years was about superstition and death.
Meanwhile the anomalies are stacking up taller than any pile of stone ever did. Everyone seeks to explain every tiny detail in terms of fractured math and symbolism. Every idea has to be parsed and homogenized in terms of a superstition that used only tautologies and lacked the very vocabulary we take for granted for communication.
What a strange state of affairs. It seems far stranger that Egyptology would continually take the low road and speak against science than the ancients harnessing an unusual natural resource to build. It's far stranger that people believe in ramps and refuse to see stones were pulled straight up than that stones grew wings by means of the application of the shm-sceptre. It'd far stranger that a perfectly serviceable ramp is KNOWN to exist down to the river but Egyptologists still believe they used wet sand ramps upon which they also slept.
In a world as crazy as this one I no longer feel competent to judge what's "crack pot" and what isn't. But I am quite certain you'll never find justification for taking any angle as being "symbolic" or reflective of superstition because these are concepts that are not even in the language. I've read all the translation and none speak of the causeways or anything else being representative of math or ideas. These are modern concepts. That anything can't or must be are also modern concepts. Anything can be and everything might not be. This is how ancients thought!
