OK, i understood what your point is..
Then, next question: why build such a thing ?
It was a symbolic mechanism used for the metaphysical transportation of the pharaoh's soul to the stars. You probably already know of the existence of the two small inaccessible tunnels going in and out of the king's and queen's chambers, well this was the pathway.
Good enough reason?
While looking into the angle of the air shafts I happened upon the fact that the great pyramid is build on the geographic center of all earths landmass. THe Great pyramid is built upon the primordial mound.
In Egyptian mythology, Ptah (also spelled Peteh) was the deification of the primordial mound in the Ennead cosmogony, which was more literally referred to as Ta-tenen (also spelled Tathenen), meaning risen land, or as Tanen, meaning submerged land, though Tatenen was a god in his own right before being assimilated with Ptah.
Temple mount = primordial mound?
Now I am wondering if the great pyramid is the temple and is built upon the temple mount (Geographic center of the earth). Perhaps the temple mount is not in Jerusalim but rather eygpt.
