I am re-evaluating the math/economics of the pyramid construction based on the presentation of the internal spiral ramp delivery system....
The delivery system is quite intriguing....however, it does not address other key production problems...principally the time required to quarry the stones....but it is exciting for me...I had all but dismissed the possibility of the eqyptians having adequate economic resources to build the pyramids...but I could have missed it by a country mile....analyses of this sort require broad assumptions.....large modern day project feasibiliies require broad assumptions...and are often wildly inaccurate.
