You require the patience of Job to discuss things with!
I designed a spiral ramp;
20 degrees slope x
10 meters wide x
1 meter deep/inside (pyramid face) & 10 meters high exterior face.

1) It would have "crabbed" across the pyramid, at approximately a 45 degree approach angle (to maintain a constant 10 meter height on exterior face).

1) It would requires 4.5 times the height of the pyramid in run to climb to the top.

2) it would hold a TOTAL volume of material of 40,500 cubic meters, 0.7% the mass of the Great Pyramid. (est 9-10 million cubic meters)

3) Each level would have ended with a flat working platform and stones would be hauled from this to the level, filling in from far side back, so the last stone was the closest, completing the level.

4) The ramp could than be extended to the height of the next level (top of the last) and the process restarted.

and

5) Since the stones could be fitted from furthest point closer, no sloping face lines!

This POSSIBLE layout was inspired by Ahmose' pyramid at Abydos, where the ramp is left in place, and the ramp ruins seem to be built to exactly the same specs.
Can you point to any evidence the geysers actually existed?
OTHER than the silly mantra of the PT chants...

When you make sweeping statements like "a ramp would have to have as much material as the pyramid", and someone gives you a possible formula for LESS than 1% of the volume, continually bleating it isn't so isn't a debate.

Kindly show me where my math is in error, or retract your (imho) erroneous claim.

Jammer

PS Again, I have no idea if ramps were used, and merely intend to prove they could have been.
