Too late...you had your chance.

Are you for real?
I'm taking it back...you're blind as can be...you still don't see it...!!!

Is that right?
Did they move the chamber before or after it was assembled?

Aaah the Great step...what's a pyramid without a great step.

Can't recall mentioning anything relating to these items...can you?

It's that/those architects/cogs again...do you have his/their e-address ?

I have...would you like to know where it's hidden?

Wrong...you failed in performing what I asked.
You pushed it to one side and now claim my work nonsensical.
Sorry but you just shot another hole in your foot...getting to be habit forming.

There was nothing to take apart...a base line of a pyramid, two numerical samples converted to angles using a 360 degrees circle and a point of intersect. It can't get any simpler.

Your criticism is not objective...far from it.

Save the postage...keep the book.

It's already finished.
