Spiros

You cannot discard one theory because it uses scaling and not acknowledge the validity of another one that does not need scaling. You can't have it both ways.

I personally don't have an issue with scaling - in fact, it is essential to facilitate a map of the sky on Earth... What, I ask myself, could possibly be the motivation -- what, is the underlying function of the Giza complex -- in context of associating pyramids with mountains? What is the relevance, if hypothetically, the mountains in Greece -- natural geographical phenomena, which in the creation process of Earth -- were fashioned with a resemblance to stars? (the latter adopting correlating positions respective mountain peaks being highly unlikely).

In the eventuality of the design layout of the pyramids indeed being inspired by mountains, just exactly what, Spiros, is the significance thereof? Other than 'feng shui' principles, does it have particilar application of value, or convey anything of importance to justify undertaking of the enterprise. Is it encoded* in the structure, alluded to in Egyption legend, a message from the future, or mystery you yet have to figure out..? Besides a dubious graveyard for kings, what motive can Giza possibly have? (trusting it can be safely assumed that the originators' demand of such, entails clear, concise and testable criteria).

* Bearing in mind such would be rather pointless, were it o.t.t. esoterically convoluted and tailormade for a solo recipient in a far-fetched proceeding from 'A' to 'B' via the distance of the Moon to 'C' and translating the Voynich maniscript in a mirror en-route to the middle of nowhere, where 'X' marks the spot. Eventually, to only discover that it pronounces: return to 'A' :o)
