Oh Oh I'm glad UP posted here, or I'd never have seen this.
My dad's friend is a surveyor and an engineer and he and his buddies figured that they placed these heavy stones using Sand, because among other
reasons, the angle of the sides of the pyramid match the angle that sand can achieve before collapsing, you know, a little sand pile
So anyways, these doors, these shafts, me and him were talking about, may have actually been "chambers" used to hold a quantity of sand, that would
hold open the main passages...and when that sand was released into the main chambers, the main doors sealed shut, and that block with the copper
handles set into place as the last of the sand emptied into the chamber.
I feel that's a good theory, what do you all think about it? Because unless they have more recently, I don't think they've found the exit point of
the shafts on the outside of the pyramid.
Which must mean they don't exit, they must lead to another chamber, that could have been filled with sand, like a funnel, that helped to hold
something such as a door open...perhaps.
