Artefacts, monuments, and structures that reflect ingenuity, advanced knowledge, and technological understanding ahead of their time
FIrst post on this Forum for 2018. Not expecting much traffic. But anyways, have been very intersted in stone softening for a couple years now. Fascinated by the prospect and am interested if there’s any people who have building experience and have fallen down the rabbit hole on this?
Many of us know the legend of the burning mirror of Archimedes. When Marcellus [The Roman General] had placed the ships a bow shot off, the old man [Archimedes] constructed a sort of hexagonal mirror. He placed at proper distances from the mirror other smaller mirrors of the same kind, which were moved by means of their hinges and certain plates of metal. He placed it amid the rays of the sun at noon, both in summer and winter. The rays being reflected by this, a frightful fiery kindling was excited on the ships, and it reduced them to ashes, from the distance of a bow shot.
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.
as pilot I like to search pictures out of sky. If I can’t fly I am searching with google earth and bing maps. As I am not a native English speaker I have to appologize for my English.
It is a pleasure to share the Revised Edition of the original work. When it comes to the ancient Egyptian religion, this research represents the beginning of an ethical and genuine discipline.

Why and how could ancient people have dragged railway cars sized block of stone and stack them up together to form these amazing constructions? Why is it that we have found thousands of Pyramids scatter across the globe? These structures are truly a global phenomena that have puzzled archeologists for centuries.
Looking now for other examples of ancient text similar to that seen at Lascaux Cave and Chauvet Cave...
This is a link to the Lascaux data
and Chauvet cave....
Does anyone know of any similar patterns found at any other site?
