My opinion or just the facts?

In my opinion the stones were lashed together using the proto-pulleys to for short trains. These trains were pulled up the 6 degree ramps 300' at a time as described by ancient historians. Most of the stones came up the eastern leg of the main quarry and most of the rest came up from the area of the Sphinx Qurry. These latter ones came up the "ramp" between the queens pyramids and the first row of tombs in the Eastern Cemetery. They were pulled by the eastern cliff face counterweight known as the "Ladder of Set". The ones pulled up the leg from the main quarry were pulled by the western cliff face counterweight and many of these were pulled directly onto the pyramid the same way. The eastern CW was fed by the knsti-canal overseen by the "Overseer of Canals" who was also responsible for the mn-canal and the nurse canal. Indeed he was probably responsible for the entire winding watercourse. The stones on the east side were pulled tothe causeway where they wewre taken by the main pyramid counterweight overseen by isis and they passed thtough the Great Saw Palace on the east side of G1.

No men dragged any stones. The "gods" built the pyramids because this is the only way it could be done. The Weigher Reckoner signed off on the stones in the quarry and attached a pice of paper before they flew off a bowshot at a time toward the pyramid.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
