A Pyramid built to pump water, when there was no need for such a device. Plenty of water. Canals still exist today. All that one would need to do, is enter the river up stream. Pump makes no sense.
Pyramids on a hill? Where are all the lavish buildings that a Pharaoh would live in? Are there any? None that I know of. Where did he stay? Evidence of Temples top and bottom. If they could have built those, then why not a Palace for the Pharaoh? Where did he live and sleep at night?
