Well, I just discovered why my comparisons of the Karnak offering-list with published sources weren't making any sense. There are at least two different numbering schemes out there.

so... Neferirkare's pyramid at Abusir (approx. 239') qualifies as a 'great' pyramid, but his predecessor Sahure's (approx. 155') does not; nor does his successor Niuserre's (approx. 170')? And Amene ...

I don't understand the importance of a 200' height* in labeling something a "pyramid" or not. Are the queens' and subsidiary pyramids constructed alongside the two big Giza pyramids not to ...

We'll never understand the pyramid builders until we understand the pyramids.

IMHO, this is backwards. One can't understand any structure or portion of a society without learning about the socie ...

It's entirely possible that the cremated remains went in some of them as an after thought and it's possible the internal organs were actually put in them before the "justification ceremony" ...

If we could go back in time it would be impossible to communicate with these people. Our universal translator wouldn't work any more than it did with Darmok and the children of Tama (Tamarians). Sha ...

There's a great deal of physical evidence that all say our interpretations are flawed.

So you keep saying. You also keep saying you're using "logic," but it's not at all the sort of reas ...

They are mnemonics and dead kings, not saw mills. They merely happen to also be associated with saw mills because this is what the so called "mortuary temple" really was.

Saw mills? For ...
