To shed more light on the purpose of the cavity, Mehdi called on specialists in ancient Egyptian architecture to come forward with ideas of what it may be so they can be modelled and checked against the team’s data.
“It’s a tribute to humankind,” said Mehdi of the pyramid. “It asks a question about what is our future. If they have been able to do this with the means they had 4,000 or 5,000 years ago and they left this heritage today, what will our own society leave for future generations?”
This is a tribute to Egyptology's ability to learn. They aren't making the same error as last time by asking for the help of linguists and they are recognizing that perhaps we don't know as much as we think we do and the ancients mustta known more than we think. Of course most people are looking at this void and saying "Now we really do know everything".
