Energy was needed for both paper making and pyramid building. Since
electrical energy wasn't available, other forms were substituted.
Animal & human muscle, waterwheels, fire--probably some others too;
I don't know that much about the processes. Electrical energy does seem
a neater, less messy way to transport and use energy than the other
options.
