"Some of most "pure" forms within the Egyptian building tradition date from the very earliest dynasties, and are generally felt to decline in style and workmanship after that."

I have no idea of this. I would be interested in the background writings as this must a conclusion of scholarly research.

My own observation on related religious, philosophical, and cultural developments is it "seems" that a pure expression can be created in antiquity such that it can be kicked around for thousands of years and still shine.
