Why use the time?

They chose to use their valuable time to build these red granite behemoths because they honored a great pharaoh. The people did not choose to build these though, the order was put in by the "o so great pharaoh" themselves. So whether the people thought of these pharaohs as almighty or not they still had to build them or face the consequences :0! It was also thought to be a helpful tool for the pharaoh to climb to the sun god, Re, or to the very high heavens after death for their never-ending afterlife. The afterlife was the thing that all Egyptians looked forward to in life, or technically, after. (YAY!)
