That white area is not big enough for the summit lake in stage 3. The middle green square is about the right size imo. Well if it covered the whole summit, if I designed it I would split it into certain areas, but thats just me.

I wasn't aware of the dating be out of sync with the theoretical age of the pyramid. I know the boat has dating issues, but not the structure itself. The orthodoxy always has some excuse that can squeeze their current ideas on to any new piece of evidence.

That is very much in line with my model. They stored the water there and then let it run down when appropriate. west in the evening, east in the morning.

The slightly acidic water would slowly dissolve some of the stone if it got to it. This might lead to a collapse. I would suspect these would be the points where the weir released the water rather than the exits of the shafts.

I might be guilty of looking for things that fit my model too, everyone does it, mainstream or alts, its the nature of the history game. Its why I prefer the tech side which either works or does not. As long as we don't get too attached and can change our minds in the event there is a better explanation, we won't be as guilty as the orthodoxy. Speculate as much as you like, somehow u keep pulling out texts that I really appreciate :)
