Sorry I forgot to point to an important aspect about Pyramides and Digital ; --- when you are used to the tradisional top,front.side views , you will expect the faces of the stones, to run in the direction of construction.
But please remember ,how a low resolution screen will show a 45 deg. line as a zig-zag line.
Now if you are not avare that seing the construction this way, you will not be able to se the many way's the Pyramides could be projected ,as you will be blinded by how you "want" to understand a structure. ----- Now the Pyramide builders minds was like the Romans ?
Or is it the Romans who been telling us how to "se" Pyramides.
Just emagine you project a pyramide as rough digital linework ,acting zig-zag thru the intire construction, then this idear will hide behind your will to se anything from top, side or bottom, ----- you will not even be able to "se" the possible framework, that will be amplified by the fact , that next "section" will also be an exact zig-zag digital line.
Anyway to make any sense about a pile of stones, it must be hollow and this can from the tradisional top,side, front views only be done in very few way's. Where with a more Digital mind, you have plenty other options, --------- Still I don't thing the greeks shuld be the right ones to unroll the secrets, as they had their own promotion to care about.
