The sudden explosion of Egyptian culture and technology which you and others have previously documented appears to coincide if not be the direct result of the arrival of the so called "Dynastic Race" of Mesopotamians in Egypt circa 3,200BC. Their period of influence seems to abruptly end at Sakkara and other than the curiously out of place palace facade architecture found in the interior of Menkaure's pyramid they had all but long disappeared from Egyptian history by that time. Walter B. Emery was of the mind that the DR was not Sumerian and may have represented a mother-culture to both civilizations.
It is understood they were not the "invading" force as Petrie envisioned, but their influence is remarkable and of little doubt though rarely if ever acknowledged.
I would ask what are your thoughts about the Dynastic Race and their level of influence and do you see them as the instigators of pyramid building in Egypt, or to the point, the Giza complex? Also, the fact G3 does incorporate palace facade architecture, a style even by mainstream dating had been abandoned for almost 200yrs-is it possible this is telling evidence that G3 is potentially much older thereby giving a more likely date for the rest of Giza? One more if you can, but do you agree with Emery and if so what are your thoughts about where they might have come from?
I understand nearly all of us regard Giza to be much older regardless and for clarity I am trying to stay within the confines of mainstream dating so if their is anything you would like to add about how this all may fit in with alternative timelines that would be welcome as well.
