Texts that have come down to us tell us that the structures were built in order to store in them everything that was of "esteem" to nsure the rebirth of the kingdom after an anticipated deluge.

Unless you can prove this cartouche is a fabrication, there is nothing indicating the pyramids are thousands of years older.
You can't prove that it isn't a forgery so it appears that we are at a draw on that point. I will say this, the pharaohs were not known for their modesty. You'd think the cartouches would be larger than life and emblazoned all over the structures like they are in the temples and tombs. There would be no mistake when looking for the identity of the builder.
Who's ignoring the other pyramids? They are quite useful in showing how the pharaohs attempted to mimic these megaliths. The megalithic ones are superior and actually older than the mastabas and step pyramids. People such as John Anthony West and R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz, amongst others have devoted decades of study to this subject.
I have a question for you. Considering your statements that civilization is maintained and not lost then why are the buildings and statues attributed to the Old Kingdom superior to the New Kingdom? Egypt devolved? I think not. The Old Kingdom artefacts are the representations of the original culture of Egypt. The New Kingdom is the mimic. They came to abandoned monuments and copied what they saw. The settlements around the pyramids are New Kingdom. I don't think anyone lived close to the pyramids when they were functioning. They are obviously some type of machine. What they did. Now that's the real mystery.
When you look at that picture. You see that megalithic structures all over the planet, this is just a small example, were built using the same technology in the same style! Now when do you suppose these supposedly diverse and primitive cultures were sharing information with each other on how to build? Anytime in the recent past? No. This is evidence of an advanced, world spanning civilization. And shockingly enough it is completely ignored by mainstream scientists and archaeologists. This should be the story of the millennium and yet it is disregarded. What don't they want us to know? Why do they conspire together?
What happened to these ancient people? A flood could have washed them away. Most of these structures look as is they've been blown apart like Puma Punku, water doesn't cause that type of destruction. Even though it was high technology I don't think it was ubiquitous like it is today. It was a secret that only few had access to. That's why they couldn't recapture what was lost.
It is written in the Egyptian king's list that the kingdom goes back 30,000 years to the Zep Tepi, The First Time. Are they lying? The ancients gave much more credence to honesty and their word than we do today. Some of the casing stones on the pyramids exhibit the same building style as the above picture. I think it's safe to assume they were all built in the same era. So yes, the pyramids are at least 12,000 years old if not 30,000 years old or older.

Agree with your thinking to a large degree.
The Pyramids...were the Arks of civilisation (good book title there)..the builders knew unimaginable calamity was coming, couldn't get off world, and so they did the next best thing...they set out to ensure something of their culture, knowledge, history, religion and great works of art and technology were preserved, hopefully safe inside monumental constructions, but if the building lost integrity and the interior failed to protect the contents, at the very least, huge evidence of culture, knowledge, technology and art would remain, encoded in the actual monuments themselves, remaining for millennia after the calamity, even as ruins.
I have a feeling the elites and those with certain privileged positions within our world have always known about this, and concealed the facts from our collective memories.
Probably for more than one reason, but i think the central reason was to keep this knowledge from the general populace to enable civilisation to recover and progress, without the hindrance of the terrifying knowledge that one day, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps far into the future...it is going to happen again, and once more reduce the majority of people, who are mostly completely ignorant and completely unprepared for any calamity, much less one that would destroy our collective societies.
These buildings were built to last, and built to convey a message to a recovered, and technological civilisation...the message is;
We were like you and we were destroyed by this calamity at this time. Prepare your civilisations, because this is going to happen again.
Tanka48: Interesting...So...forgive my ignorance here, Why didn't the planet shift uniformly? What you are talking about would be a shift in the rotational axis, which, would see to shift the whole uniformly, and apparently it didn't. So I have to ask; "Why?"
Develo: Could you please help me find my way to these texts you mention?
Devel: edit: also I'm a bit lost because Triton says the pyramids line up with Orion 12.500 years ago (at what time of the year? lining up how? I have no idea) and you mention 19.000 years for the time the pyramids make reference to. It's a bit difficult to determine which of you to follow

The sphinx is even older than the pyramids. you can tell that from the erosion on it. It happenned when it was wetter.
Some theories from certain people here suggest we might be the 5th itheration of humanity to exist here.
