No one has ever claimed that every component within G1 is manufactured to extremely fine tolerances, however some elements are, which in itself demonstrates a highly developed and efficient understanding of construction principles. This combined with the total disconnect within the internal decorative features of the Step Py and the very obvious absence of these features in the supposed, immediately following structures can only compound the notion that they are in no way related.
It is claimed that this leap in understanding and applied mathematical principles took place in only a century or so. at a time when technological development was by today's standards painstakingly slow. There is no evolutionary stage or stages between the Step Pyramid and the great pyramids, a missing link, and if the conventional chronology is to be believed, little or no time for those missing links or evolutionary stages to have taken place.
From an engineering and design perspective, or context, the great pyramids are totally anomalous within the orthodox sequence. I can fully understand that individuals with little or no understanding of design principles assuming that the sequence is Step > Great pyramids. It's an over simplistic conclusion brought about by a lack of understanding and therefore poor analyses.
So to sum up.
It's a cute story, however there's too much evolution and not enough time, supported by lack of evidence of intermediate developmental stages. The only context is geographical proximity, they are all in present day Egypt.
