He was no longer a corporeal being as you or I but was the pyramid by day and the star by night.
Where do you get this?
So long as they remembered the king when they saw his star or pyramid there was no "belief" he was a star or pyramid. That was all that was left of him; a memory produced by the star or pyramid. This is exactly what the pyramid was for; to remind them of their king. By being reminded of him he could continue to watch over his people eternally.
Modern people are so obsessed by our beliefs this looks like a belief system rather than reality itself. We are so obsessed with parsing words instead of seeking premises you'll look right past the meaning of these words. Then you go right back to parsing the ancient words even after I interpret them the way the author probably meant them.
You can believe that these words are gobbledty gook and incantation and can never be understood or you can try just reading the literal meaning without parsing them. Your way is never going to bring back the dead king but mine will. It will bring him back because the pyramid is also a time capsule and will contain writing about Suphis, Khufu, or who ever the hell it's a mnemonic for. We can resurrect the king but your "magic" will never answer even the most fundamental questions about anything because magic probably isn't real. There's a logic to nature and a logic to the Pyramid Texts.
They obviously didn't think like us and needed no such words because they had no definitions.

And you simply choose to ignore the readon the king was ascending! The Pyramid Texts says over and over that he was ascending to BECOME the PYRAMID. The KING IS THE PYRAMID. Mebbe someone should start a thread to show the hundreds of times they said the king is the pyramid.
He BECAME the pyramid when he ascended to the iskn to be cremated. He became the pyramid as he ascended to the clouds on the smoke of incense. Why can't Egyptologists read? It is quite clear this is what they actually said and they said it in a language with no words for "belief" or "thought".
> You are quite mad, aren't you!
When I grow up I want to be as crazy as Egyptologists who study the pyramids with their backs to them and refuse to do basic testing, consider other ideas, and won't debate.
Well, not really.
I never wanted to be an educated bully.
