I understand this perspective but I find it highly unfortunate. Most people who become interested in the pyramids and their builders come at it from cultural or societal angle because so many find the concepts of an "advanced" yet primitive people and culture fascinating. Most people with an interest in Egyptology are trying to understand the motivation and thinking of the builders. they are trying to understand a culture that would leave the evidence that is reported so widely. Generally theortitions and engineers find very little interest in piles of stone no matter how large or well organized. It's like going in the ring with one hand tied behind the back. Physical evidence is sorely lacking anyway and the little that exists is believed to have been generated not as infrastructure or relevant to function but rather as an expression of religious beliefs.

We have had the means for decades of finding exactly how these were built but instead no one is interested and the lead investigator won't allow data published unless they agree with current theory. We are starved for information because Egyptology doesn't care.

I'm sure you'd be interested in data which show existing structures under G1 for instance. I'm confident that you could further your own research if a great deal more were known and in my opinion learning how the pyramids were built would provide far more information than what is already known even in aggregate. Even if I'm wrong having an answer would lead to clues about things like where to look for the ramps and stone draggers. It should lead to clues about where the quarry workers are. It would lead to finding how known pieces of the puzzle fit together.
