[Herotodus] account of Cheops,
and the outrageously large,incorrect script style and Red Ochre inside blown out chamber by the Opportunist Howard Vyse and criminal hench.
Khufu's cartouche is etched in stone at Giza on periphery building.
same same...for previous ruler Snefru.
So ya.....Mainstream archeao/egyptology [who should call themselves KMT-ology].....have been duped by a composite of driven agenda
Naqada II/III show rulers bashing skulls in ,
the tabular records of Early dynastic rulers shows them raiding into regional lands- [slavery?]
they have mining operations in far away Sinai.
supposedly Khufu has 100,000 men working GP for 20 years
and has time to build causeways,mortuary temples,.harbors....mastaba tombs.
The numbers don't jive....and its improbable the numeric work force could be made* to serve that long...without some standing army present to enforce work timeline...
and then you have the other logistic side of transport,
feeding the show so they don't die to quickly.
its far too much of an undertaking...
which is resolved if we consider adoption theory and what a ruler with said socio networking could actually achieve in that day.
The Mastaba/tomb field for the Elite suggest its a project of the day [adoption/restoration]...and they are going to make ancient Wikipedia and be remembered....cuz their Elites and Ego is very much the reality with this crowd as history goes.
The dynastic succession sequence finds rulers taking previous rulers endeavors and despoiling them of it.
ya...respect and honor is their first thought : )
I'm of the opinion that this Egyptian cultures rulers go from early adoption and -don't dare try to fake ownership of pyramids and temples which the Black culture found....
to a form of Elite/racism/opportunism.....which declined away to the point the people lost the ability to even speak/write the ancient code.....as the Greeks and Romans did their CNN/MTV on them and they went with the show.
artisan skill to craft/design and build in Egypts dynastic succession existed and is witness to their ability,
yet the scale and timeline for accomplishment is smaller requiring shorter time interval for projects.
and here....we could suggest the projects were not always a show the people were onboard for.
Making people participate in projects finds a history of manipulations,
where the Priest cast/media of the day and Military side enforcement are the removed** from the story ....reality.
As a rescue first aid for 5 years at my last contract with a large scale steel oil-nat/gas fab shop.
you put 200 people on a site and over time...they start getting injured and fall out....the attrition ratio.
the attrition ratio for building with wood sleds,ramps,sand pits drained out to pivot pillars and blocks,
this is going to tumble worker numeric.
the guys chipping rock are going to be blinded,
have hand injury's,back injury etc
along with the cycle of genetic defects kicking in via age.....
I'm not seeing the resource/logistic side present to afford Khufu and Snefru the ability to build from scratch....everything so stated they built by the Howard Vyse defenders.
the climate suggests it was difficult as socio numeric stability goes.
population numbers would probably not be in accord with what is projected to build everything.
how do you feed so many.......for so long?
and why would they stay on for such dangerous work for 20 years?
what would they get out of that?
not seeing any kind of middle class living with holidays and luxury shopping.
The Roman army with their engineers and soldiers who were engineers on the fly,
all that was enforced....
and you could get Decimated* ...if your Legion went into rebellion mode.
and ya...the numbers getting killed is off the chart at times.
hidden from view.....the Roman army fighting to suppress several Jewish uprisings lost men in the 10's of thousands....many times.
Today...in America....most believe that the Founding Fathers were nearly all....Christians....and America was born by the will of God
Those reading along this thread Todd might consider our comments towards this [victors write the history...and have their media side .....going back to the ages of Greece and Rome...if not earlier]
Egyptian Pharaohs with victory wall celebration....when in reality
the guy barely escaped the military adventurism after battlefield defeat,logistic side ambush....deprivations
duping the public and enforcing the will of the Elite is the reality which the mainstream scream louder to shout down when brought up.
or just ignore....
Sneaky Howard Vyse,
sneaky Zahi Hawass
they are able to participate or create deception,
because that reality exists in the boardroom...of the Elite...who they are most surely....making gesture.....to please.
