When I parse these words you seem to be suggesting that studying pot shards and measuring the pyramid is sufficient to understanding the entire culture. Since Petrie's time they've done very little new measurements with new instruments of the pyramids. None of it systematically and much of it never published at all.

Then you're saying that someone can be right only if they agree with linguists. Never mind it is not easy do do hundreds of thousands of google searches or track down tens of thousands of clues. It's not easy to memorize the PT. It's not easy to read the Coffin Texts as many times as I have. You're saying that if a Peer doesn't believe it then it can't be real. You are ignoring the fact that more and more people believe in ancient science and ancient civilization. You are ignoring the fact that some linguists are breaking ranks and saying we are mistranslasting this.

Your considered stance is that Peers can only be right even though they themselves admit they only "circumscribe the meaning" of these spells and incantations. Your position is simply untenable. Either they are spells and can never be understood because they are spells or they aren't spells and the entire basis of Egyptological beliefs has no foundation at all.

They simply are obviously not spells ("it is what fell from him to the desert of sand") and the linguists never noticed that there were no words for "belief" "thought", reductionism or taxonomies and the language breaks Zipf's Law. They never noticed because they never expected "spells" to make sense or obey simple logic and linguistic law.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
