The rock was meant to be here
The greek historian Herodotus visited Egypt round about 500 BC (circa 2000 years after Cheops). In his famous world history he wrote that he heard King Cheops was buried on an island in a large water-filled chamber under the pyramid, into which the water ran through a brick canal.
Actually he referred to what might very well be facts about Cheops's burial chamber.
The island: the western part of the chamber rises above the eastern part in which one would arrive.
The water: I think it was the egyptologist Perring who had the pit cleaned to a depth below the Nile surface (its height during ancient time's annual rise); he concluded it must have been a well, since any chamber lower than this
regularly would be filled up with water. If we supply the well with a frame of wood (on two sides there is an edge/a shelf it can rest
on) - we could tighten it with clay - we have a normal well from which we would be able to fill the lower part of the chamber with water. Filled to the right level it would look like the water was floating into the chamber from the square channel to the south.
This would be the artificial water supply Herodotus told about.
The writings of Herodotus has led to the assumption that there must be another hidden chamber in the ground below the pyramid. Others have thought that he must have been misinformed. But as you see he might have been right. The chamber still reveals how it may have been theatrically elaborated to remind the visitor of The Nile water flowing past the Giza plateau.
