I know we are slowly putting together the lists of the ancient Pharaohs but I still have trouble attributing these huge sarcophagi with the king list
we have. Its not the list, which I am sure we are probably faily accurate on, its the actual builders of these huge monuments.
Either the people who had the technology - and it must have been quite some technology - all suffered a total and collective amnesia as to why and how
they built, or these were built earlier by another people who have disappeared and the following people to occupy the land after them, merely carved
and adapted for themselves and their history these ancient monuments. Most of the tools we see left by the workers in their tombs are for decoration
and carving, not actual structure to my mind. I know sledges were probably made of wood and have rotted but its also the genius to have put the plan
together in the first place to build a super pyramid with super-sized blocks that intrigues me. I still wonder if the dates for the actual
construction of these monuments are no where near accurate or, are we missing some vitally important clue that would clear up this mystery.
I read some of the ideas as to why the sarcophagus was so huge. Sure its possible that some beloved pet or belongings went inside with a pharoniac
mummy, were that the real purpose of the sarcophagus, but with a pyramid built on top there would have been plenty of storage for belongings and
things to take to an afterlife. Surely that would have been more acceptable to a Pharaoh who as use to space and left in some form of order rather
than crammed inside a box - if indeed that was the actual purpose. Somehow I am not convinced of why one would build such a huge box, unless the
original occupant or users were huge themselves, which again considering the size used for the building of these structure makes more sense.
I am wondering if anyone has tested the sarcophagus for some kind of audio use. I know the inside of cathedrals are constructed to change the brain
waves of the congregation into a more receptive mood to absorb the service etc. I simply can't see putting a dead body into a box portrays a journey
to the stars etc. But I am open to others ideas if I am wrong. I would say that I do find many archaeologists tentdto make huge leaps of judgement on
mere fragments sometimes and I think much of their opinion is very subjective and I think for unusual things its thinking out of the box is needed
more however much the truth might shake up our view of the ancient world.
