I could choose dozens of photos or words but here's the pyramid founded right on solid ground that you called the pavement and they called the "ssm.t" which meant "integrated apron".
Try a peek at the gravimetric scan if you want proof that stones were pulled straight up the sides one step at a time. Ramps are debunked and it has been proven that there are far easier and far better evidenced ways to build great pyramids. These are facts. What you have is opinion based on et als and inertia. You have tradition and belief. I have pictures. I have facts and they are supported by the builders themselves.
