There are countless ways to use the weight of water to lift something using highly primitive technology. Almost all of them involve capturing the energy expended as the water falls. Kinetic energy is simply harnessed to do work. Water has a lot of weight and potential energy when there is anywhere to drop it. This is one of the chief things that should have been seen with the NNE Trench that takes water to the ideal place on the Giza Plateau to drop it down to the valley below. But 19th century scientists believed these people were too primitive to do anything but drag stones on ramps. They didn't see the evidence.
I find your topographic map quite interesting and have been looking for this for years. It might be lucky I didn't find it since I might have stopped looking for a water source right here.

This was the greatest weakness in your theory's original incarnation; it was too complex and appeared to involve technology that was beyond the builders. Their technology was quite remarkable was they likely had only simple machines and simple materials.

Obviously. Somehow, Egyptologists can't see this. They simply didn't have vast resources to waste as we do.

This could account for half the pyramid and the delivery of all the stone. I don't see how it could be utilized to build the upper parts of the pyramid. Yes, it provide sufficient energy but not in a useable form.

More than 200 acre feet which is ten times as much as they needed for an entire season.

I'd be honored to have you do anything at all with it.
I think it would help a lot of people just to depict the henu boat hanging over the side of the pyramid with a rope going across the step to the dndndr-boat at the bottom of the opposite side. I know this is deucedly difficult to show I believe it's how they lifted most of the stones up the pyramid. The dndndr-boat is shaped something like an old fashioned child's sled with tall posts near the bottom; a little like a bull's skull. The henu-boat is shaped like a grasshopper on skis. It is a little elongated compared to a real grasshopper. The ropes are slings in 100' sections.

I'll be watching for it, of course.
