The question is: did the pyramids single out the
pyramidal meteorite for worship or did the meteorite
inspire the pyramids?
An analysis of mega-engineering projects throughout
history I did has some bearing on this. They come in
Type I mega-engineering projects are evolutionary.
They slowly build up to the largest and most massive
type, and then, as the need collapses, they quickly
end. An example of this is the largest steam
locomotive. Type I MEPs are near the end of their
Type II mega-engineering projects, much rarer,
suddenly and dramatically appear on a scale much more
stupendous than their much smaller predecessors. The
political, social, and economic conditions and
motivations are coincidentally maximized. The Saturn V
moon rocket and the Great Pyramid are examples of this
type II. The later examples in the series are attempts
to recapture the glory, but the conditions are not
quite right. The later examples are smaller and less
ambitious. Type II are near the beginning of the
series, which die out.
In type I, one might expect the meteorite to
resemble; in Type II it seems more likely to be part
of the motivation which must be maximized. But only
part of the motivation.
