Having fun is important. I believe every human being has only two legitimate purposes and everything we live for arises from them; have fun and leave the world a better place. I'm hoping all of my life and especially my work on the pyramids will accomplish these objectives. Even if I am wrong about the pyramids it's still fun seeing such a very very very dramatic example of confirmation bias FIRST HAND. Homo Omnisciencis is a remarkable God-Like creature. If I hadn't come up with this "nonsense" I'd be fascinated watching the poor guy who did. Of course all the premises necessary to understand this are already in place so I'd probably believe it too. ;)
Yeah, the fact is that there is plenty of overlap among all the alternative theories and they can all be right. But if even one single alternative theory is right then almost all of orthodoxy must be wrong. Being an Egyptologist in this day and age of high tech and extensive knowledge must make every Egyptologist feel like he's standing in quicksand in an earthquake. Eventually the technology will be applied to the pyramids or the ancient writing and it will be seen that Egyptology is a construct with no foundation. It will crumble with the first data showing a reality outside of assumptions.
There is no "color" to the portrayal of ancient people. They are depicted as moribund grey, mummy white, and black as a desiccated corpse. People were superstitious and did things for reasons unrelated to logic or observation.
It's a shame I needed so much help with all this. I'm unusually dense so making all of these connections would have been impossible for me. If I could have solved all this and THEN posted it most people might agree with me. But I needed your input and dozens and dozens of others. Even my detractors have been exceedingly helpful because a lot of these things wouldn't have occurred to me without typing out responses to them.
There's a whole lot on heaven and earth and modern people seem to have mostly lost sight of the wonder and the enormous gaps in our omniscience. There's a lot more colour to reality than just a few strips of light that define a spectrum.
