I've always had a little interest in history and archaeology but never cared much for the way it's presented in so disjointed a way. There has "always" been a free flow of ideas and goods yet everything is presented as though it is distinct. I've had more interest in anthropology though am hardly well read on this subject either.
For me this status quo might have lasted a lifetime except that I saw a picture of the Great Pyramid with objects around it so the scale might be discerned a couple years back. My immediate gut reaction was that no number of men could build this with ramps yet this was always the suggested means. This led to an investigation which has basically resulted in learning a little about the orthodox understanding of the pyramid and its builders and a total rejection of mainstream thinking. I don't believe humans behave in the ways ascribed to the builders and they couldn't have completed the impossible even if they were mad. When evidenced ideas are presented (at least on-line) they are met mostly with derision rather than much serious consideration.
I believe the builders were largely "speaking" to future generations and to some extent, specifically us. They said the pyramids were to survive eternally. But even if the modern age were wholly unenvisioned by the builders there is still a great deal of information here about nature and the nature of man and his life.
Yes, I feel that learning how the pyramids were built will lead to important knowledge. And this applies even if that knowledge is that we ain't so smart as we think we are.
