There are LOTS of them. lol
As was pointed out, it's a design that isn't very efficient in terms of space, though. In cities, you generally want a building with a small footprint on the ground, and then maximum space insides--thus skycrapers with multiple basement levels.
For impressive, pretty buildings, it's nice, and plenty of folks have done it.

The pyramids in South America, by the way, are built in a relatively similar fashion to the Egyptian ones.

As for 'Atlantis and Mu'...just...no.

I think they used an advanced telepathic suggestion that was irresistable to their slaves after they were emotionally weak.

Um, being a telepath, it's hard enough to even tip the scales on one persons mind, let alone dominate hundred of thousands. I'm all for the Egyptians being capable of psionics but controlling all their slaves minds would require at least as many Egyptian psionics as there were slaves.

But back then all they had was time, so with a decent government program and selective breeding and thats how I think they did it, in parts of Egypt anyways.

I dunno, it seems to me a race of people capable of utterly dominating someones mind would still be alive today doing just that.

We are humans. With enough time we can adapt and resist any conditon. even mental domination.
