Please see amd consider the Griffith Institute's online image of Burton's photograph (P0004).
Excuse that I cannot link to it at this moment. It is an image of fill in the KV62 corridor.

Burton P0004 is another evidance that the tomb was robbed. It is even considered a receipt for the second burglary after the funeral (after the first, the corridor was filled with debris, what is untypical for a royal tomb of the 18th Dynasty in the Valley of the Kings; in the upper left corner, the small tunnel that the burglars dug through the rubble the second time, was refilled with debris of distinctly different structure).

good. Carter deemed it a product of robbery.

I found it is a recurity and identification feature that is an optical composition.
It identifies original intactness of fill also the face and mouth of a valid tomb and nnt a decoy or
disturbed tomb.

Repaired breach in the outer blocking actually indicated location of the reference inside.

The composition is half of a whole. Copy, flip it horizontally and place next to the original.
It produces different images on right or left side. A shadow scarab insect is formed as an alignment
reference or register below the mouth.

The scarab found in the staircase was also a key reference to the optical composition.
It gives different considerations to 'Opening of the Mouth'.
It would have been simpler if I could post an image.
Cheers.

I recommend as a primer to look into
Wade, Nicholas. 2016. Art and Illusionists: Vision, Illusion and Perception.

Politeness or not, if someone expresses mind-numbness, then I have to call it that. Your fantasies have nothing to do with egypt, egyptology or research. Pure spinning ... Wrong internet forum.

My politeness is normal and your opinions are validly yours. Maybe someone else might
find some interest to consider the information. You asked and I replied. You don't have to
consider it.

Calling other people's observations fantasies while citing magic bricks might not be a good
idea.

No I do not have to ... but I can if I want. If you post in a public forum dealing with questions about ancient egypt, its history and religion, its exploration, so busy with "Egyptology", you have to reckon on getting answers and asking questions. Especially if you spread such "oddities".

I can not remember reciting any text from a magic brick ... But no matter.

Your observations are nothing more than fantasies, and obviously not only in my eyes ... And naming them this way, is my polite designation for it. They have not the slightest connection to Egypt and its history. Such mind games I can do with x-any object of any ancient culture in the world, if I want, if only I had enough time and if I would be boredom enough to do so ...

I agree. There should should be questions and will be disagreements for items put into
public forum. I am not bothered by sincere insuiry or disagreement.

The observations I have put forward legitimately are and substantially
in the domain of ancient Egypt.

Something seems to have upset you. There are no mind games at play.
There are simply aspects of ancient Egypt that still remain to be known.

Perhaps you have a question about the observation that I might answer.
I understand how it might upset some but it is not a mind game and your strong
response is not from any fantasy you accuse me.
Ancient Egypt was more sophicated and complex than known.

Sure, there are enough aspects and questions that we do not know yet, or have an answer ... and probably will never have. However, this does not mean that one can speculate freely, without reference to the material and textual legacies of this culture, as you do in my view ...
