Well three dimensional objects have perimeters and height. Those aren't design rules. Design rules would be square based vs. triangular based vs. cube vs. sphere shaped or 2 rooms with bathroom vs. 5 bedrooms with 3 baths.

So....one-offs. If it wasn't repeated the same way in, lets say 3-4 pyramids, then how can you prove any one "application" was purposeful vs. accidental?

What you think they were doing isn't as important as what you can prove they were doing.

Yes they used mathematics.(period) The application of desired symbolic proportions has yet to be proven as dictating the dimensions.

Really? New one on me. Where can I find this evidence, not personal belief?

First you have to have evidence they did include it.

A + B = C
Find for A.
Find for B.
Find for C.
You only assume they started with base and height. All that problem shows is someone finding"B".
