Now days man has water almost anywhere he wants it. It's still too
expensive to lift it even with machines but we build dams at high el-
evations and channel it down to where it's needed. But 4700 years
ago water was only where nature put it and men had to go to it. In
a desert at the height of the growing season the only needed ingred-
ient was water.

Horus was "Lord of the D[].t" according to the PT. About the only
thing that fits ALL the defining characteristics for this word is gey-
ser so it appears that this was the generic everyday word for "geyser".
It was taboo to depict the Gods or even make direct references to
their jobs which is why the generic form of the word appears so few
times in the PT.

The physical evidence says there were no ramps. The lines on all the
great pyramids are horizontal and vertical and this plus the fact any
lines exist at all strongly suggests that ramps (at least external ones)
never existed. Not that this really matters when considering how the
pyramids were built but at least we know one method that was not employed.
There's not a great deal of evidence but the vertical lines do suggest that
stones were pulled right up the side. This strongly suggests counterweights.
These facts coupled with the evidence for water atop a plateau where there
should be no water is fairly clear evidence oif an unusual natural phenom-
enon. Throw in the water erosion in man made passages under Giza and it's
pretty convincing evidence that the boats which "fly up and alight" and the
stones that fly like the "fledglings of swallows" just might be literal and
just might be confirmational. When the entire work of the only thing we have
that dates nearly to the time period is consistenrt with this it's pretty re-
markable.

I believe the problem may be that no one has ever looked for geysers. Even
if they had there's a great deal of question of exactly what they would be
looking for. With modern tools and knowledge these could be found.

I believe they are closer to a mythical description of the real world as they
were able to flesh it out. There were numerous restrictions on how they could
reference natural phenomena because these were their Gods. They couldn't say
the sun will rise in the morning and it will be a great day. They'd say Re'
or Khepri will arise and that Re' is good each day. It was a sort of super-
stition that giving characteristics to the Gods would cause them to fail or to
hurt those who are blaspheming them. So it made the PT harder to understand.
Add in the fact that the coffin texts and book of the dead were already well
known as books of incantations and the fact that the PT continued to evolve
for hundreds of years before our earliest copy and it made this work almost cer-
tain to be misunderstood.
