As the solar disk, or should that actually be sphere, is so omnipresent in ancient Egypt, and as the OK religion was primarily solar, then the solar disk/sphere should be present, IMO, within the design of the pyramid. The slope of the sides may well represent the rays of the Sun, but I'm thinking that even if so, then it is not as strong a link to the solar disk/sphere as could be expected. Then, what precisely is meant by saying that a pyramid is an horizon. The horizon is just that flat plain in the distance from which the Sun ascends, and a pyramid is anything but a flat plain in the distance. Surely there is at least an implication that the pyramid may be representing the rising Sun, a disk/sphere.
