Hi Sandru,

Sketchup allows for some basic animation. GoPro cameras are fairly cheap and they're software for editing (again basic) is free for downloading. I run another business, and have many other responsibilities. So, I usually only can devote an hour or two early in the mornings.

If Funiculars built the Pyramids, the evidence will show itself over time. I have worked with this so long now, I can't reason why you would do it any other way. I did show boats could be employed as well, mostly as a second option.

The Causeway took 10 years to build. That's half as much as the Pyramid itself. It must have been important. Why would you put that much effort into a fancy walking path? Each platform is 9-10 feet wide. Just the correct width, for the Funicular math to work, as well as, a 4.6 degree angle.

I think my "Stone Puller" friends will eventually come around to the realization
it was allot easier and faster pulling stones up and on top of the Pyramid, verses doing it physically.

No one here on the message board deny it could not work. They only wonder about water. It was much wetter back 4,500 + years ago. And besides, the Nile was closer.
