well mabe the mode of building the pyramid was so common as to be not noteworthy. this has aparently happened many times throughout history it drives
a friend of mine beserk when trying to use medievil resipes translated from the old english, norse and other languages, there are food prep methods
listed where it is taken for granted that everyone would know how it would have been prepared.
one thing i have seen farely recently on daily planet i think it was. was some artifacts that are a 1/4 circle on one side with a straight edge on
the other. they were small mabe 3-4 inches long. the story goes a worker had brought a child to work. the kid being a kid started to play with stuff
when the adult was not looking. well aparently these paticular ojects were for an unknown purpose. found in the area where the stone workers lived.
well this child put the 4 pieces together in a circle and wala there is a perfect square in the middle. this is when the adult notices the kid playing
with priceless artifacts like a toy, he than sees the circle the child had created, realizeing that this may just be the method used to move giant
stone blocks with realative ease. albeit in toy form. take a look at it yourself (sorry no picture), draw a circle, quarter it, now join the points of
the circle where you it was quartered. this is what the objects look like, you have 1 big square barely contained in the circle put two of these sets
arround a squared rock, strap it (mabe some sort of latch?) in place and start to roll your big rock arround. much more efficiant than dragging don't
you agree. i must also say , leave it to a child to do something through natural curiosity that an adult spacificaly looking for answers misses.
personaly i was shocked when they presented such an easy answer that has escaped us for centuries. it was discovered within relics seemingly to be a
childs toy, wouldn't that be a common object beneith the bother to write about when there are mysterious things to set pen to as well as grand
as for floating the blocks on the nile, perfectly plausable. after all we built ships out of cement in both ww1 and ww2. i would asume though that
they would have to be shaped for it. not sure though but easy enough to do just leave an extra bit on for the shape. they were experts at stone
crafting after all.
it would be interesting to see a show like the anchant weapens series i have seen of late. to try these techniques out and build a small pyramis.
