I see you are having one of those more elevated than the normally very high, levels of madness currently and seem in desperate need of attention.
My post was likely made during the period in which Steve Clayton's funicular was completely debunked. (recognised as such by many) . The (my) post was mere sarcasm and that ought even have been obvious to you.
It was later confirmed and demonstrated by Steve Claytons own independent consulting engineer
that even 50 tons on the artificial contrived and imagined very slippery 4.6deg slope (cof close to that of Teflon on Teflon 0.08) that such would only create a pull force of approx. 60 ft pounds.
iow there were no funiculars!
I regret not putting all my debunking efforts of your geyser filled ,boat fantasy in a separate thread so I could just link it. However, clearly you didn't and still can't understand why it cannot work, anyway!
As for your reply to Eddie,:
Whilst I do not believe the stones were raised like such (tetter ) there is no requirement that they ought be raised on a narrow ledged platform anyway. Deep wide high recesses with near vertical back arranged in progressive steps , could be created to overcome the narrow ledge problem.
Your fantasy has an even more severe problem in that you think a boat filled with water clattered down such a slope or think there was a massive boom crane extending out on each side of the pyramid to allow vertical unimpeded lift and fall. Impossible. Not to mention you have never addressed what braking mechanism could be employed to stop the boat of water accelerating to ground with a destructive crash? It would require extremely high friction braking wheels at the end of the impossible boom crane to restrict gravity 9.8 ms*2
There is that enough attention for today?
