You're still fixating on all stone coming up the causeway even though the quarry is right next to the pyramid and in a different direction.
Most stones were pulled straight out of the quarry and straight up the pyramid in almost all probability. You need to concentrate on the bulk of the stones and not the causeway. Do you dispute the quarry was just south of the pyramid?

On paper you can count the number of angels who dance on the head of a pin.
No offence but you could consider getting training in Egyptology if this is appealing.

If this were the only workers village it simply ELIMINATES the possibility they used a muscle based system of lifting stone. If there's another village it makes the builders highly inefficient and ignorant. If they slept on ramps then they were insane.

The pavement, mason's shop, causeways, port and associated facilities (composed largely of tura stone for cannibalization) required an enormous expenditure in time and effort. They built a machine that built pyramids right in place.

You're calling these "machines", barges. I am calling them "counterweights" (built of short pieces of wood) that were called "henu boats" by the builders. This is hardly a semantical argument. The pyramids were built in steps with machines composed "chiefly) of short pieces of wood EXACTLY as Herodotus said and we misinterpret.
EVERYTHING IS PERSPECTIVE AND BELIEF. Ancient people got everything right and we get it wrong, but even more, we got it wrongly.

I believe they left everything right in front of our face and we misinterpret it. There are even depictions (drawings) and descriptions of funiculars but we see something else.
