You just gotta keep going, Steve. Pull those things together into one homogeneous whole and see what the picture looks like.
Look at what the stone pullers are proposing. All that ramp building, when a small amount of wooden track, straight up the face of the Pyramid, accomplished the same thing, in a fraction of the time. I haven't even mentioned "levers". It's absurd on the face of it.
So you feel it was still somewhat green on the plateau? If there was water, things would be growing. Any canal or ditch they may have used, would have plant on the banks. Those plants would also help clean the water.
For all we know, they could have had a system of agriculture, on the Plateau.
