    "This Old Pyramid":
    *Narrarator: "(log) Rollers work good, but only on a smooth, hard surface. So, they're of no use on sandy site. At neighboring pyramid complexes, the remains of clay roadbeds have been found into which the ancient Egyptians imbedded wood, like railway ties. Perhaps a sled loaded with one of Roger's two-ton blocks will slide over this surface".

    Aqua-photic: Response
    I appreciate this paper's attempt to rectify a historical-contextual evolutionary explanation for this reflex rather than an approach that begins with neuro-sensory experiments and then attempts to understand purely based on what is going on in the brain. I'm not a scientist, but it seems our current cultural context in which we have become immersed in mediated experience is biasing scientific inquiry. It is as if homo sapiens were just walking brains and the remaining biological totality is irrelevant.

    Anyway, I wonder how the aquatic root of your hypothesis matches the data that suggests that this reflex is more prevalent in some groups of people, Caucasians for example, than others.

    Before I found out that there was actually a term for this phenomenon I called it the 'cave-man reflex'. I theorized, along the same lines as your diver's reflex respiratory cycle hypothesis, that climate and shelter necessitated this adaptation.

    Could humans who inhabited more damp, mold-prone shelters have used a slightly more reserved respiratory cycle while indoors? Much like a diver's bradycardia, was triggered to restore to full vascular efficiency upon surfacing, shelter dwellers could sneeze upon exiting their domiciles generating a greater respiratory intake around 'cleaner air'.

    King Herod's temple was built using stones which were rolled to the site. The huge base stones were cut into 200 ton cylinders and rolled to the specific spot, then chipped into rectangular blocks(1). Once the base outline of the temple was complete, only the temple priests were employed, following strict temple rules. The smaller wall stones were squared and finished at the quarries, then encased in wood drums and rolled to the temple to be assembled by the priest construction crew.
    (1) Per the film "In the time of Jesus" by Readers Digest.
    Here's information on England's Stonehenge, a possible roof, and how the huge stones were moved, quite similar to Dick Parry's
    idea of how the Giza Pyramid stone blocks were moved in 1/4 circle wood cradles.

    An interpretive view of a seemingly useless vestigial human trait, affecting 1/3 of Europeans (and other people), is here hypothesized as having been a formerly significant part of the respiratory cycle in ancient human ancestors.

    The following are different scientific articles on oxygen use and conservation in regards to physiology. Nitric Oxide (NO), Iron (Fe), Globins (Neuro- Cyto- Hemo- Myo-), L-DOPA, and other chemicals are involved in O2 transport and use in the body. During cool temperatures and during apnea (breath holding), certain Oxygen conservation patterns occur throughout the body, especially in the brain and eyes (which are heavy users of O2).
    Neuroglobin (Ngb), a globular heme protein expressed in the brain of vertebrates, binds oxygen reversibly, with an affinity comparable to myoglobin (Mb). Despite low sequence identity, the overall 3D fold of Ngb and Mb is very similar. Unlike in Mb, in Ngb the sixth coordination position of the heme iron is occupied by the distal histidine, in the absence of an exogenous ligand. Endogenous ligation has been proposed as a unique mechanism for affinity regulation and ligand discrimination in heme proteins. This peculiarity might be related to the still-unknown physiological function of Ngb. Here, we present the x-ray structure of CO-bound ferrous murine Ngb at 1.7 Å and a comparison with the 1.5-Å structure of ferric bis-histidine Ngb.
