I wonder if this could support or disprove Houdin's internal ramp theory.

One of my favourite theories


Of all the crazy and *creative* explanations, his had merits, evidence and no inclusion of Martians.*


* no offence to Martians or people who favour the Mars Hypothesis. Or Venusians either...no offence there. Not that Earth is necessarily better. Maybe equal and they ALL have equal right to have possibly built the Great Pyramid **

** No offence to native Egyptians or academics there. Khufu's pyramid works equally well and I would never DREAM of saying either one works better than Cheop's Pyramid. All names have their place and have no more value than each other. ***

*** Of course that isn't to devalue anyone's right to an opinion or freedom to call the pyramid any name that suits them.

Is the ramp for handicapped access?

Ah, no worries. It will soon be cocktail hour and I will mercifully forget whatever it was you said or did not say.

No dude.

The ramp is for jumping the Sphinx like some Egyptian Evel Knievel.

I didn't think camels could jump that far. That must be the reason for the ramp, extra height to clear the distance.

Makes SOOOO much more sense now.

Here's a quote from one of the links above regarding the salt deposits:


While it has been suggested that this build up of salt was the result of the great flood, there would need to be many great floods to deposit salt on the walls to such a thickness.

Moreover, similar deposits are not found in other areas of the pyramids. There was some in the horizontal passage and the lower parts of the Grand Gallery. There is also some in the Subterranean Pit.


Perhaps we've got some stonemasons or building conservation specialists on here who can shed some light on this ...


There's any number of sites that explain it... however (one more time)

Limestone forms under the ocean. It's ocean organisms, which are very salty.

The Giza plateau is limestone. It has tons upon tons of salt locked up in it.

When you get moisture in the area (from the breath of humans...which is full of wetness) it will leech out and form a crust.

This is why in many modern caves they have airlocks to regulate the humidity.

One would be tempted to ask if that's consistent with the unequal distribution of salt layers, the thickness and the many other sections made of limestone blocks where no such deposits were found.

You'd expect to see uneven layers of salts because limestone isn't a consistently hard material. It has pockets, different layers of varying hardness etc. These example factors would affect the capacity for water absorption and hence the 'exudation.' If you happen to have any limestone buildings where you live, have a look at the blocks. If they're old enough, you'll see erosion has worn some away to a greater degree than adjacent ones.

As our esteemed Byrd points out, moisture is an issue in other sites. I'd love to visit Chauvet cave and it's been closed to the public for 20 years due to people's breath.

That's good then, I will continue to refer to it as that massive pile of stones and strange chambers designed and built purely to confound future generations. Or Thoth's pyramid for short...

Yeah, I loved to sit up in the radioteloscopes of the Compact Array out at Narrabri, MOPRA and Parkes, listening to the "phut phut" of the cryo pumps.

No one disturbs you and I suppose I imagined I was just that much closer to the stars (plus it is comforting to know that everything is working).

It may sound weird but that sounds incredibly therapeutic and soothing...
