Incas, mystery of interlocking walls

Over the last 60 years I have read about and listened to many stories on how and why did the Incas build the interlocking walls so large. Who or what were they trying to keep out?

In the first place how did they remove the giant lumps of stone from a rock face? They did not have any machinery or explosives and they certainly did not bash it out of a rock face with a lump of stone that's ridiculuous. It is also ridiculuous that they made each intricate stone with another lump of stone and end up with that beautiful and tight fitting smooth finish.

There is one thing for sure, the Incas were just onlookers, they had the assistance of a far superior race. It could be said why so complicated when they could have made an interlocking wall by straight cuts in an alternating castellations style, we do know that cutting dead straight lines is common practice for them. There are plenty of examples around and to be removing 80 to100 ton stones from a rock face side, 1500 years ago they had some very advanced cutting technology, far superior to ours.

There are trillions and trillions of what we call stars in the solar system, they are all planets. Some think we were the first here, no way, and we think our technology is far superior to any other. These beings had our technology over 1,000 years ago and they still visit us to this day.

All the sceptics out there remove your heads out of the sand and see what is really happening around you.

You know....

There’s a few possibilities of how this was achieved. Glass-sun laser cutting and huge amounts of manpower, these could actually exist from an earlier civilization that met a catastrophic end and placed all the Americas into a Dark Age and caused all the schisms, there’s the possibility the stones were already present and carved to interlock  when they were already one whole piece and only slightly rearranged, there’s the possibility it’s a hoax set on occupying and entertaining the masses, there’s the possibility that mastodons were once used to move the stones. Occam’s razor is the simplest explanation is often the best one, so how would you most easily achieve that and it’s probably the way. There’s the giants aide theory, there’s really no way to know how they did it but I imagine it wasn’t aliens and it wasn’t cross-atlantic intuition. They could’ve just ground and resmelted giant rocks clump by clump in a very neatly done fashion, making it Inca era dating when it’s actually a lot older. 

Lets face it, we have no

Lets face it, we have no concept of the technology used to produce the cyclopean walls. Rock hammers and copper chisels and multiple fittings just don’t make sense. The Inca told the Spanish conquerors they did not build them, that they were there long before.

Just watched a program on Geographic channel last night which had the Inca building them – how wrong to push that agenda simply because they can’t explain it any other way. They just can’t be honest and say they are not sure. I’m not convinced aliens did it or even helped, but what about the possibility of an advanced civilization many thousands of years ago that was wiped out by some calamity? Lack of artifacts to support that? A lot of Ooparts are discounted because mainstream archealogy just can’t believe the provenance, or discredits it because it does not agree with their theories.

morgar but all for now

 

Stone melting material science

They weren’t carved.   If they were actually carved, then they thought long and hard about how they could design the wall to make it as inefficient and difficult to do as possible.   Once you make it down the rabbit hole of the 21st centuries contribution to reexamining catatrophist theory, and you realize there have been many global cataclysms in the past large enough to nearly wipe out any traces of past civilizations, you become open to the idea that there could have been more advanced chapters in the human past.  THEN, when you look at any of the hard igneous polygonal megalithic work around the world, you allow yourself to consider a much wider range of technical possibility, and then its much easier to see the forest for the trees.  Considering this kind of work as a ‘carved’ work is ridiculous.  These stones were some how melted into each other by some advanced technology that we do not posess.  Some say Geopolymers like they could make stone into concrete.  Some say there was some chemical mixture that could soften stone and make it workable like clay.  And some say it was an advanced tech that affected the molecular bonds in some way that made the stone soft for a workable period of time long enough to place a rock in the wall and then appy this ‘affect’ to the stone to allow it to sag into what ever geometrical surfaces it was placed on or adjacent to.  

If you notice those knobs or bosses that stick out, you’ll notice they are nearly almost always on the bottom of the individual stone in the wall assembly.  Geopolymer people believe these were the concrete input ports at the bottom becase that is typical for filling concrete formes from the bottom so as to avoid air pockets.  But if you imagine it as a stone softening ‘affect’ or tech of some kind, those bosses on the bottom does suggest that if you could point some device to the stone that would have a limited field of ‘softening influence’ on the material, then it makes sence where those bosses are because it where you’d want to sag the softened stone into the most complex corners to fill them up with simple gravity influenced softened stone flow. 

Que the debunkers...

Similar fitted large stones

Similar fitted large stones are found in Egypt as well. There are many examples.

The bosses, supposedly used to manipulate stones into place, but then left on building stones are puzzling. If they could cut and fit the stones, why leave the bosses on instead of just finishing the surface of the exposed stones to be smooth? Also, consider the huge amount of material that had to be cut away to leave the boss – both the Egyptian and the South American technology reflect this method.

There are lots of old theories but finally with a wide audience with a total perspective of all the common curious attributes of all these megalithic sites, those out of date idea’s are starting to wilt in the light.  One developement in the past decade is from a material scientist Davidovits who’s pushing the theory of geopolymers to explain these sites.  Thinking of these rocks as having been formed from an ancient kind of concrete has many challenges as a theory in my oppinion, but in their efforts, they have made some very interesting discoveries. 

For one, under microspectroscopy, they’ve identified some distinct differences in the physical make up of the materials when they compare the building stones to the quarry’s they came from. One major example is that the limestone blocks in Sacsayhuaman seem to have no micro orgainism shells included in them, where as the quarry sites in the surrounding area’s all do, which is normal for limestone which forms typically on sea beds as sedimentary rock. 

Also this Davidovits geopolymer guy actually made a few samples of a ‘simulated’ limestone through a geopolymer mixture made in a lab, and he sent these samples out to geology labs to have them identified and because geologists only examine the rock microscopically visually, they completely couldn’t see that this rock was man made.   So there’s quite a bit more close inspection necessary to make more progress on figuring out what was going on back then. 

I’m not suggesting the answer is ancient cement, but these cement guys are finding some very interesting new information so we could be getting closer now.
