You call it a recovery vault but it could simply have been a storehouse as a hedge against a future drought. You can imagine all you want that this makes it a logical progression to all the pyramids being a recovery vault but since NO SEEDS WERE FOUND IN THE ACTUAL STEP PYRAMID they were found UNDER IT ! I along with I am sure the entire world will be hard pressed to see any logic in this at all and all the circular reasoning you want to employ will never make it so either Scott.
And sorry if calling it your book offends you Gary but that is the way I see it as well.
And it is not Scott because I was one his biggest allies when he was suggesting a gravitational base in early measurements but the 3rd and 4th dynasty pyramids being built as recovery vaults is just plain wrong and really I honestly can't even believe I am debating it.
