What does that have to do with anything? Do you mean if they were indeed real Dynastic heiroglyphics then you'd seriously consider the possibility that it was built by the Dynastic culture?

But that presumes you already know its function.
How would you know that?
Since we have no evidence of anything "earthbound" ever constructing such a thing, how would you know what the "necessary characteristics" would be for such an object?

I believe you are incorrect, yet again.
When did I ever say such a thing?

Strike two; Show me where I ever "insisted" such a thing.

"Knots", you say? I've twisted nothing, because there's no need for knots. The evidence is pretty clear and requires no twisting whatsoever. In fact, if there's any "knot" being tied, it's by traditionalists who have turned the timeline into a time pretzel.
So that's strike three.
But ok, if you don't think it's a UFO (or a Sitchin parking dock), or a machine, or a granary, or an extraterrestrial transmitter, or a nuclear power plant or any other energy generator, then what do you think it might be?
Do you think perhaps (or definitely) it's a tomb?
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
