The potential energy of the pyramid—the energy needed to lift the mass above ground level—is simply the product of acceleration due to gravity, mass, and the center of mass, which in a pyramid is one- ...

Drat!

My last post was supposed to quote

What evidence do we have that Chufu was buried at Giza. Were the Pharoahs not buried in the valley? They found no mummy of Chufu and some folks say that ...

Hi all. I've been looking at photographs of the recently discovered tomb at Saqqara. Fascinating. Cult of Seth comes to mind. Has anybody translated the glyphs in full yet?

There's also the "Admonitions of Ipuwer" from the 19th century BC which suggests at least some pyramids contained bodies.

There are a few mentions in the Pyramid Texts including utteran ...

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 ...
