Steve, my understand is that no one is stating that a center core tower gives better structural integrity to a pyramid. From my armchair, the issue is that at least some pyramids started out as a simple core tower as their end design, but then the outer skin was added as a later project to render the true pyramid look.

That said, I do believe that adding the outer skin could add a certain benefit to a step pyramid, but I have no idea what the thinking could have been in the case of a central core tower like we see at Meidum which was a disaster waiting to happen.

Since it's not clear that the E2 and E3 phase of Meidum would have been included by a knowledgable engineer in the design of the original core tower, I chalk those outer skins up to adaption by a later, more engineering-challenged culture.

And even if a pyramid only had a dozen multiton blocks, the builders would still be able to justify the construction of a causeway, regardless of whether there also was filler with sand, marl, rubble, small blocks, etc., used in the construction.

Can't wait!
