This is very interesting because in nature this would be impossible.

Clay is made from very fine grains. In order for them to be deposited naturally the depositional environment must be very calm ie. a still lake. However, asymmetric ripples indicate there is a flow.
This flow would make it impossible for the fine clay grains to settle and create the clay beds. This discovery therefore offers quite the conundrum.

For me, this discovery further reinforces the idea that the Pyramid builders had the ability to work with materials in ways similar to how nature would, while still demonstrating it is artificial.

Below you can see the manufactured blocks. No block is the same, each cut a different shape and size which helps the blocks to interlock giving the structure more strength.

Between the layers of the manufactured blocks are layers of finely laminated clays. These look like natural deposits but as they are sandwiched between intelligently designed blocks, this cannot be the case.
It is possible for the clay to be sculpted in this fashion. Clay does indeed need very still water in order for it to be deposited as it is made of extremely fine particles, but it is also possible for those deposits to be sculpted in the post-depositional environment by flowing water, just as ripples on a beach are formed. The change in deposition structures from clay to sandstones and back to clays indicates just such a fluctuating marine environment, probably deltaic. The fact that the clays are laminar in nature also suggests a deltaic environment with seasonal changes from inundation (eg autumn flooding).

Assuming that the clays were laid artificially, it need not have been an advanced technology - I've been involved in 'pond puddling', where a water body is created by depositing clay in a depression and then spending many hours treading it into shape. Early Victorian reservoirs were built using the same principle of treading in a compacted clay core and surrounding it with an earthen embankment.
