Don't see anything indicating the use of intestines partly filled with water as leveling devices. Paintings and drawings and tools left in tombs indicate they used wood levels (there's a bunch of articles and books on it. The particular site I'm linking to happens to have some good illustrations on it and pictures of the tools.)
Many other cultures used the same method (wood tools.)
While your theory is interesting, tomb paintings don't show such a device being used. Furthermore, since levels would be important for the builder in the afterlife, their burial chambers would have had pictures of these things even if they didn't have the actual object so that people who came to pray at the temple could magically "wish" for the tools/food/whatever to show up in the afterlife for the deceased and they would magically apear there. (Standard offering formulas include "o traveler, when passing by, say "a thousand loaves of bread for the ka of Ptahotem" or something similar.)
None of the thousands of manuscripts or painted walls describe an intestine tool or show one at work. They do show the wooden level in use, though.

I was seeking the depictions of the Level, you noted above, but I am sorry Byrd, I can not find it. I saw some Plumb and Bob Tools, and a Square.
Is this what they are considering for Laying the Level of the Base of Giza? A little Square?
I was expecting something a little bigger, as well as the "Artistic Impressions" of these tools being used as you suggested. I couldn't find them in your links either.

Reason I state this is because I follow and read some of what majic states, and reading this thread with Marc, I believe they are the same people.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The level is hooked to a string spanning two points. A plumb bob is then hung from the level

Well i'm sorry people, maybe i'm over reacting on this one, but i just took a look at Marcimede's so called "teachings" on another site which i won't even waste finger energy on by typing the link, and i can't listen to this guy any more.
Personaly i think that despite his knowledge in the subject of pyramid construction, i feel he came here to cause trouble and he seems to relish in telling his followers this on his other site.
