There are numerous ways that these could end up as they are by intent, coincidence, or retrofitting.

It's very difficult for me to believe any one fact is going to solve much of anything at this late date.

I doubt it. There are many ways either could pre-exist the other. I believe this causeway connected the "Boat of 770 cubits" to the port we call the "valley temple" and it existed before G2. It might have pre-existed the Sphinx as well but I tend to doubt it. It's more likely it existed before G1 than the Sphinx.

Giza was all planned in advance but at this time it's impossible to say how much detail was planned in advance. Much of it just "happened" because it had to happen and this is why we have things like paths that lead into the pyramid 163' south of the NE corner. But in order to subsume this path under construction there had to be a plan just as there was apparently a plan in place by the time G2 causeway was built.

We're all trying to reason from the specific to the general while, just maybe, we should be doing the opposite.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
