I had forgotten the story, but I'm not sure its relevant if it was a story about being trapped in a coffin. On the contrary, my model is evocative of the ascension of the king's soul from the sarcophagus akin to the ceremony of the opening of the mouth.

I have no doubt that the sarcophagus was a model of the two spheres mentioned because the sarcophagus is an extremely precise model of those spheres which are relevant in the context of the design of the pyramid with one sphere appreciably larger than the other, but I have not yet proposed that the designer calculated the volume rather than determined the volume from empirical methods which would not have required the modern formula for the volume of a sphere, only a determination in relation to the volume of a cylinder and the estimation of the volume of the cylinder based on RMP. The very fact that formula for a sphere is in the form of a physical model does indicate that the designer had the skill to determine the formula from an assessment of a physical model, precisely so.

Petrie did not promote the idea that the area of a circle was known from the 22/7 ratio, only the circumference of a circle which would have been seen as 22 palms for a circumference of 7 palms (1 cubit) by anyone who attempted measurement in cubits of 7 palms. Simple measurement would have revealed this as a fixed ratio even if not understood as a fixed ratio from pure geometry, but there was no reason for a symbol to express the ratio for a ratio perceived as exact in whole numbers.

Khufu's Horizon may be a picture of the ascension of the king's soul from the great sphere of the earth to the celestial sphere. I think there is a verse in the book of Job about the world hanging on nothing. Ancient mariners knew that land appeared and disappeared over the horizon. The first known determination of the size of the earth was in Egypt in antiquity which I was reminded of from your post.

I don't think the design is a model of the ascension of the sun from a primordial mound at the beginning of life on earth. The difficulty in presenting a geometric theory of the sarcophagus is the problem of coming to a conclusion regarding the purpose of the design.
