Did the pyramids inspire early human architecture?

Now that I've been inside the pyramid on Savathun's throne world, I've noticed that it seems very similar to Mayan or Egyptian architecture. I know the out of game reason for this, but it raises the question in-universe of whether or not the black fleet visited earth in the distant past. If not, I wonder if perhaps certain members of early human society received visions of the Darkness and/or the Black Fleet, thus influencing this aesthetic.

As for pyramids it was because the pharaohs that were buried in them were considered incarnations of their sun god. And well its the better structure to make when trying to build something pointing to the sky when all they know are basic 3d shapes
