Yet by the same token this palace facade building, if only the doorway for some, was of paramount importance. Surely this means something as to their purpose and meaning for both the palace facade building and pyramids.

Surely at some time you have read a translation or version the so called "Egyptian Book of the Dead"?

There are lots of gateways or doorways they imagined one had to go through in the afterlife (Some versons 21 gates). Also many of the ancient religions considered there were layers of heavens. Lover posted about 7 heavens, but many ancient cultures thought so even it leaked/ copied into Christianity. ( Note the layers in the design)
Also note the 3 figures "Gods?" on the pillars... that is replicated in AE and many other cultures.

What I am suggesting is maybe there is a symbolic significance to the patterns rather than a specific, longed for, actual building?


Cheers

Edit : To remove all the queries relating to why I cannot see all posts. It is a lottery "switching views" (sometimes you get all posts sometimes not! sometimes jumbled... there's some sortin' out to do!)
