What lines are these? From the scan?

They all suggest they are spiral. Like so:


Can you provide sources of anyone mainstream or alternative (other than Mason Williams) that claims this scan represents a stepped pyramid?

This is complete BS. I have no interest in Cladking rhetoric.

Can you provide a link where the copyright holder says they specifically forbid this?

To be honest I do not care if the internal structure is a stepped pyramid. I have presented evidence that suggests these pyramids were built around a core such as is seen today at Meidum and some of the satellite pyramids at Giza. I believe this actually qualifies as a "hypothesis". It is possible a stepped pyramid was built up around this and then built up again for the final outer core. Regardless, The problem is simple in that you are claiming the scan is an "exact match" for a stepped pyramid but it is not. It is merely your interpretation of it. Is this not a fair statement?
