M.Williams: “The Queens Chamber Shafts take the shortest route to the exterior, a 90 degree angle from the exterior, and would have exited at the same course on the exterior.”

This is an old idea, and may well be true, but until we know what the angle of inclines for the upper reaches of the QC shafts are, I would wait until the survey data has been published before embracing it. Unless of course you have access to a reliable survey that supports “the shortest route to the exterior”.

Incidentally, Sirius, when due south in c.2820 BC (alt. 38.157 degs), shone perpendicularly down onto the southern face of an inclined surface with the same angle of incline as Khufu’s pyramid.


M.Williams: “They point to different points in the sky than the KC shafts do.”

If they were designed with specific stars in mind then obviously they would be aligned with different stars than the KC shafts that have different angles of inclines. So what point are you trying to make here?


M.Williams: “The angle of the kc shafts were obviously changed so they too could exit at the same level on the exterior. Both angles were dictated by practical considerations.”

So what were these “practical considerations”, and can they explain the purpose of the shafts?



M.Williams: “No other pyramids had star shafts and there is no AE writings of any sort linking these shafts with the stars. The star shaft idea is bogus.”

We also do not know for certain who designed the pyramids nor do we have the original architectural design or the original design criteria. So, we need to examine their afterlife beliefs that are heavily influenced by the sky - the sun, moon, planets, stars etc., and then familiarise ourselves with their sky to find any possible connections between the sky, the royal mortuary complex and their afterlife beliefs expressed in the PTs.
