Looking at GoogleEarth, 2 things stand out:
1) there is what appears to be a pressure ridge running across the island that ends at the "pyramids" on its western side
2) There is a 1.5 mile Sumba tunnel through the ridge very near the pyramids.

One wonders how the rock was carved / eroded to the same angle, to the same height in the following picture. The mountain with an apparently flat surface, 2nd from the end, lines up with the one at the end. Strange.
For one, there are the straight lines that make up the sides and then there are step-like features that are especially visible when looking at the peak.

Natural or not you have to ask.....what is the reason that we started building pyramids in the first place in the shape they are in. Man parrots things, he will build something that he has seen. If this is the basis for the idea of the pyramids, it means the culture of people at that place either made an impression on others or settled in another area and made similar mountains artificially. Now this probably means that they either had armies to force others to work or became people of great wisdom and conned the people into building the pyramids to attract commerce and tourist activity.
Man did not come up with the idea of building pyramids on their own. Something influenced us.
This could have also been a natural mountain that some ancient people cultured into a big garden terrace. This would greatly increase the growing potential of the island. Our ancestors were not dumb, they had a lot of intelligence even though they did not know a lot of words. They could make the best of anything. Now, we have more knowledge and less creativity in our societies. We only see what we know, at least the ones who have memorized a lot of words and presently accepted as important idealogies. We are steering far of track from what is important.....survival adaptability.
