But your proposition requires no math at all. Indeed, the exact method need not even be shown. Simply stated they had the materials and ability to use the weight of water to lift stones. It can't be more simple than that!!! You don't need any math beyond the fact the pyramid sits on a 225' cliff and the center of gravity of the pyramid is at only 120'. In other words adjusting for the difference in density you only need about 50% more volume of water than the pyramid itself. To nature this quantity of water is insignificant. More comes down in a two mile radius in a normal rainfall than is needed to build the entire pyramid. And it has 20 years to make up any shortfall!!!! Whether it's a spring or any other means at all a few hundred acre feet of water is nothing to nature. Even the flow in the Nile right next door exceeds this amount in the briefest time.

So don't try to fixate on math. Find the water source and define the materials that they are KNOWN to have had such as rope and the craftsmanship to make any kind of... ...well... ...crafted ship.

Hi Cladking,

The math I am performing, has to do with single and double incline plains, and the amount of square footage required of water (1 cubic foot of water = 62.43 lbs.) required to lift an average stone of 2,500lbs., on both the Pyramid face, as well as, the Causeway. The barges required in such an endeavor, need to be able to float, and displace enough water, to carry a specific load. Their widths are in line with a 13-15 feet Causeway Platforms. It's the Math that shapes everything.

My illustrations are based on specifics. Ropes sizes to handle breakage, a time frame placing one stone every 1 minute, within 20 years, ect., ect., ect. I do not leave anything up to chance. When completed, you should be able to use Sketchup and remove any item, measure it, and calculate it for realism. That's my idea, as to illustrating and explaining...How the Pyramids were built. An in depth study.

Now that may bore the hell out of some individuals. Though I feel it is necessary, and therefore fixated, on getting it right. I am happy, when individuals point out the faults in my designs. They are in effect, helping to build a plausible presentation.

Here, would you like to help me figure out the weight required to overcome the friction, of two equal loads, on two separate incline plains, ie. the Causeway. And, the space required in cubic feet of water, to overcome specific stone loads, and the size and minimum load breakage of the ropes required? Sound like fun? :)
