It's not surprising there's almost nothing left of tools and infrastructure after THOUSANDS of years. It's quite amazing that remains of "a few scattered ramps" are still there...
Everything else on the Giza plateau related to magic, religion, or superstition? Well of course, it's a necropolis after all. BTW same can be said about every kind of graveyard / cemetary, even modern ones...

Very strange statement imho, why would claiming the "airshafts" were ritual / magical and the PT being magical / religious, have anything to do with the building methods used?

Not sure what you mean but most people actualy believe the AE people built them, not gods, not magic.
