Of course I believe they had just such a feature to alert the workers to the presence of water which was called the "nbht-sceptre". This wildly waved its "variegated feathers" during the day.

Logically the chief reason to use a massive pyramid to lift water to great altitude is the build the pyramid. This is because they could use the water at low altitude on the Giza Hill to do almost any mechanical work they wanted. It would be

I don't know what you want. I told you why the flame isn't blown out (look at the size of the wick!) and showed that they described a fire that is kept burning by falling water and getting swamped. What do you want? What kind of fire do you think burns better where water is falling on it? Are you incapable of seeing that this disc answers that last question? Are you incapable of

QuoteDoes it? How did you figure that out as there is only one in existence? Is this another case of you making stuff up? By LOOKING! This is something Egyptology doesn't much do. They talk past their detractors and look past every artefact. There's only a single way to reverse engineer anything at all. You start with the assumption every feature and characteristic is indicative of a sp

QuoteThen arrange to have it done numb nuts in the method I suggested instead of just talking about it. And what do I do about the far more important testing that they refuse to do? What do I do about the infrared testing they finally did but now refuse to release the results even to peers? What do I do about their primitive and hackneyed methodology that they've used for 150 years?

There are countless billions of thermometers in the world for instance. Additionally we each have temperature detectors built right into us all over. All it would have taken to find the thermal anomaly was for one individual to go feel for hot or cold stones. Egyptology uses no high tech and no low tech. Rulers abound and most of us can measure the cubit between our finger and elbow. Yet E

Once you lift water you can use that water to lift anything very very efficiently using a sort of teeter totter that we call a "funicular". That the pyramid was a pump that built itself is a very attractive theory. The very concept of things creating themselves is all through the REAL cultural context. The only significant problem with the ram pump theory is that there is no known

I understood little of your post or it wasn't relevant to what I said OR this topic. QuoteNope, not that one certainly, lol. However, as you yourself have noted if it isn't mentioned in the PT then it didn't exist. It is mentioned a dozen times in the PT if it's really a floating oil lamp as every characteristic suggests. It not only has every characteristic of a floating oil lamp designed
