So then why does the capstone look like a pyramid. I don't see any angles on it giving the impression of a pyramid. But as you say, the capstone is a pyramid, because we reason it to be symbolic of such.
Just as the so-called triangle in theron dunn's avatar is a pyramid, because we deduce it as such. We know the artistic limitations in portraying a fairly large all-seeing-eye in an angled pyramid, thats why they just show the face of it.

Its an interesting question though why it appears the way it does on the Israeli Supreme Court. But, I think the question has been answered. The question is what is the significance of displaying it such.

Axeman. You don't need to lecture me on Eygpt, I've been there and seen the wonders with my own eyes. Been to the musem and seen many symbols and objects dated BC that are used today, STILL. Read a lot and am still reading about egypt. Thanks anyway.
Atum was himself created by Ptah in some mythologies
Unlike Seker, another crafts god, Ptah was associated with stone-based crafts.
Often he wore a skullcap.
The dictum is "God is one, people call him by many names". Hence many (innumerable) deities exist. When monotheistic religions came into India, they were welcomed and their deities absorbed into hinduism. Today also many Hindus worship at Mohammedan and Christian shrines and keep images of Christ as a part of the Hindu altar where images of many Hindu deities are kept.
In Sumerian mythology, An was the god whose name was synonymous with the sun's zenith, or heaven. He was the oldest god in the Sumerian pantheon, and part of a triad including Enlil, god of the earth and Enki, god of the watery deep
The universe first appeared when Nammu, a presumably formless abyss, curled in upon herself, and in an act of self-procreation gave birth to An, god of heaven and Ki, goddess of Earth (commonly referred to as Ninhursag).
2060 B.C., king of the ancient city of Ur, sometimes called Zur-Nammu or Ur-Engur. He founded a new Sumerian dynasty, the third dynasty of Ur, that lasted a century. Ur-Nammu was the promulgator of the oldest code of law yet known, older by about three centuries than the code of Hammurabi. It consists of a prologue and seven laws; the prologue describes Ur-Nammu as a divinely appointed king who established justice throughout the land. This code is of great importance to the study of biblical law, which it predates by about five centuries. The two most famous monuments of Ur-Nammuís reign are the great ziggurat (temple) at Ur and his stele, of which fragments remain.
In myth and religion, Nammu is the Mother of Enki, the god of the Sweet Waters, Magick, Crafts and Wisdom, and Ereshkigal, the Goddess of the Underworld. More importantly, Nammu is the goddess who has the idea of creating humankind as a help for the gods, and it is she who goes to wake up Enki, asleep in the Apsu, that he may set out the process going. Also, Ur-Nammu, the founder of the Third Dynasty of Ur, is named after Her.
*Perhaps the conspiracy is that we are all slaves to the law profession, just as we are of God itself and by association their representatives. Like Abraham and his servants, which are all ultimately servants to God.
