ML: If the Great Pyramid was built as a 'recovery vault', it would be fair for one to assume that it would be well stocked at all times if, as you believe, that the AE invested so much time and effort constructing it in the first place because they feared a global catastrophe.
SC: It would be stocked until such time as the contents therein were actually required. Would it be re-stocked? Probably yes if the AEs believed another cataclysm was on the horizon. But the Precession Timeline at Giza indicates that these events are spaced just under 6,000 years apart so there would be little need in the short term to re-load the Recovery Vaults. In the interim they could be utilised for other purposes such as intrusive burials.
ML: Given that you refute the notion of the pyramid being a tomb because of the absence of a body,
SC: The absence of a mummy is not the ONLY reason why I, and many others, question the veracity of the tomb theory. In this thread alone it has been shown that the portcullis system in the Ante Chamber would never have worked effectively as a security measure against tomb robbers - in fact, there was everything there (ropes, wooden beams, counter-weights) to assist anyone INTO the King's Chamber. This completely contradicts the tomb premise but supports the Recovery Vault premise.
ML: - how do you justify the absence of a wealth of seeds in a recovery vault built - as you claim - for this purpose?
SC: As stated elsewhere in this thread, there were large quantities of different types of seed found under the pyramid complex of Djoser at Saqqara as well as 40,000 stone containers under the actual pyramid itself. These I see as the remnant of the recovery goods. Recovery goods were MEANT to be removed (at the appropriate time, mummies were not.
