Hi Corpuscles,

I will pick up a copy and read it. I asked Dr. Troglodyte for his best source of knowledge concerning this topic, and he delivered. For this I am grateful. Obviously, being a man who believes in Funiculars, I will be reading it with a skeptical view. All of the points you make above are viable considerations.
Considerations that only lend more prof that 100,000 of men were not employed to build the Pyramids, as Dr. Mark Lehner uncovered.

I am sure the book will deal with "what" was required. I highly doubt the book will explain "how" those requirements were employed. To the best of my knowledge, no one ever has. The reason for this, is simpler than you may think. They all base their calculations, on moving one stone at a time.

Only Funiculars and floating barges, deliver multiple stones. Until Funiculars, no one proposed they moved more than one stone at a time. A Funicular in essence is a Barge. Funiculars could have been designed to accomplish both tasks. They could have even been one in the same. Float the Funicular carrying stones, and attach it at the Harbor. Another consideration...?

Once you start lining men up, pulling stones in an organized march to the top, the math fails. Need I say that again? The linear space required negates the ability of this being done, placing a stone every 2-3 minutes. It's DOD! You cannot even find the space in the quarry or on the Pyramid to do this. Once you start lining men up, pulling that many stones, the whole process collapses.

There is not enough room.
