The technique used in Peruvian megalithic stonework most often attributed to the Inca Empire is known as dry ashlar. Below is an example of a less
complex trapezoidal dry ashlar window constructed using trapezoidal blocks much like can be found many European cathedrals and castles.
This doesn't seem beyond the Inca. Certainly a skilled caste of stoneworkers could attain the skill required after a lifetime of working with stone
day in and day out. However, what perplexes me is the stone walls attributed to the Inca Empire that are not pieced together with trapezoidal pieces,
but instead by blocks of very odd shapes as can be seen below.
Some of these irregularly shaped blocks reach weights in excess of 10 tons, yet the typical trapezoidal dry ashlar blocks found are not nearly as
heavy on average. No trapezoidal ashlar blocks have been found in Peru to my knowledge that even come close to rivaling the weight of irregular base
So tell me, how do we know if the Inca really did this? I think it is highly possible that they stumbled upon some ancient ruins that had been there
for perhaps tens of thousands of years and decided that the ancients did a pretty damn good job with their walls and monuments, why not build atop
what they have started?
Don't misunderstand my post. I am in no way saying that making the walls and structures was beyond the capabilities of the Inca. What I am instead
proposing is that instead of the structures being a mere 1,000 years old, what if they are actually 72,000 years old built by ancient Southeast Asian
Islander sailors who managed to cross the ocean very early on in our perceived human history? A sort of reverse Kon-Tiki expedition. What if, what if,
what if you might say. I agree. This is just my mind imagining the possibility of what could have been.
