First of all, although you are happy to quote Petrie's maximum and minimum length of those walls you fail to take his suggestion that after correcting for the open joints the mean measurement , comes to 412.4" , and i would imagine most would run with that advice on the basis of being of sound logic, and therefor closer to the intended length.
Then you infer that i and ori are making a mistake in using the present floor level as the base to measure the height of the chamber from.
Your use of the phrase "raised floor" is wrong, i have never read any other works on the Great pyramid using that phrase for the Kings chamber, please direct me to any professional published papers or books that use it in describing the kings chamber floor.
In fact you can clearly see by this borrowed pic that loveritas posted yesterday that the floor level is continuous from the previous passage.
So no, there is no raised floor, and i would suggest , "with respect", it is you that is in error to claim otherwise .
Yes the walls continue on past the floor level, but why bother to ascertain that value ? , so for now i will stick with 230.4" or 19.2 ft for the chambers mean height.
