Why do you chop out the rest of that sentence which says:

...and also bring you to the floor of the QC and its passage which was most certainly the beginning of a change in work flow and methods.

You are arguing over nothing. Bring these blocks by ramp to this point and use other methods to install them.

At Meidum, as I argue, its "function" is as a structure unto itself and was not originally intended to be a pyrmaid.

Cladking. Stop arguing with me just to make them into step pyramids to serve your own beliefs. These points are fact. It is unequivocal Meidum and Djoser cores were built first before they were converted to pyramids. If what we see today and all of the archaeology that supports this were not enough then take the word of the DE themselves:



You made a comment about Saqarra and mastabas leading to pyramids. Mastabas are rectangular and the core of Djoser (M1) is a square and is debated whether it was ever intended to be a mastaba. Stadelmann suggest this was the nucleus of a planned pyramid, I disagree, but regardless there is no doubt it was built first. These are the facts which as usual you dismiss them at your own peril. The tower core of Meidum sits on a square base which its similarity to Djoser M1 is not lost on Egyptologists either.

You just saying this, contrary to the evidence, does not make it so.

> stones.

Which is the only reason, regardless of the facts, that you say what you do. This does not interest me. Did you not read anything of the other thread(s)? If you put in just a little effort you might actually learn something. Look again:


The tower core was built using the accretion layer method. The collapsed pyramid conversion layer was built using horizontal courses. Do not respond unless you understand what this means. You cannot build a tower core using accretion layers at the same time you are building horizontal coursed steps. Apples and oranges. Not to mention the Meidum tower core is dressed as a finished structure which makes zero sense if it were only planned to be covered by an outer pyramid layer.

[snip]

I have no interest your your beliefs about ramps. They are nonsense and regardless you are making a straw man just so you can argue against it so that if you "debunk" ramps this means your beliefs are valid which is bullshit. Stop. Don't care. No one cares. They used ramps but most get it at some point at a certain height this model breaks down and other solutions are required so just stop with the nonsense for once. You are arguing with yourself.
