And I am hardly surprised you are a dishonest idiot. I did not "forget" jack shit.

I have spoken of this several times in other threads and the regular banding, specifically the lower 3rd, is one of the direct reasons what we see today is how it was originally intended in which I just explained to you in the post you are responding to the casing stones would have went up to this height:

I quoted you saying this, but for one it is not "orders of magnitude", you just make up whatever, and regardless how stupid is it that they would not do something they wanted to do just because it was a little "harder"? This is one of the more moronic drivers of your and a few others "theories" is your aversion to hard work.

Do you think maybe this was done in modern times so that shit wouldn't fall down on people touring/working at the site? And regardless, this is senseless as the fact it is cleared does not change the fact it was also finished.

So often you just make shit up without expending any effort to educate yourself. It is just as "far more likely" the opposite is true as there is 18th Dynasty graffiti in the temple that was otherwise completely buried under the collapsed outer layer. Not to mention debris from cattle herders of the MK who used it as a shack.

Of course not.

It already shows this as obviously there is nothing else between the two so there is nothing else for it to "case".
And a "step top" that is 6ft wide with an exterior made of finely cut and polished limestone casing?

It is a "step" that cased the lower 3rd:

Of course it would.

No dumbass. Manu said this.
