The Nazca lines are there for a reason, but are only visible from high altitudes simply stated there are ideal as map markers from the same altitude
balloons fly at.
Aztec and Mayan Societies resided in mountainous regions how did they move supplies, men and materials around effectively enough to maintain an
empire, without heavy beast of burden? Empires which in respect to territory and populace were as large as any in the Eastern Hemisphere.
A voyage across the Atlantic in a boat made of reed is not the same as a using one to navigate around a continent. Such a venture would at best be
extremely dangerous and as a result would limit considerably, the ability of travelers to apply such a means for commercial gain. On the other hand, a
balloon properly equipped has the ability to rise above a storm and can carry a substantial amount of weight.
This would make possible a viable trade route with little interference with commerce.
The conclusion drawn with respect to the "Atlantians" was that they were a very advanced race. The basis of which would have been the result of the
observation of advanced technology of some kind. That they were capable of flight would have been a good reason to draw that conclusion, as to those
who resided in the Eastern Hemisphere the sky was equated with heaven.
In North America Buffalo were so great in numbers that some have concluded that when they migrated (in the days before the Europeans came), there
movements could be visible from orbit. Clearly, to claim that somehow this fact had somehow been forgotten by Indians living south of Mexico bespeaks
of a culture which was not aware of its own heritage. Naturally they could have imported and domesticated these animals (they were at least that
advanced). A natural conclusion is that they had an alternative and applied that alternative effectively.
The technology of Ballooning was alleged (per written history) to have bee invented by a Portuguese monk near the time the Spaniards had successfully
gained control of south and Central America, as well as the Caribbean.
I submit that as an ally so close that today Brazilians speak Portuguese the technology was stolen.
Knowledge of it belonging to American Indian Empires was suppressed, and the Portuguese monk received the credit.
The llama is most useful as a pack animal. Llamas generally can carry about 130 pounds (60 kilograms) each, and are sure-footed on the mountain
trails. They can travel from 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 kilometers) a day with a full load. If a llama feels its pack is too heavy, or if it thinks it
has worked hard enough, it will lie down and refuse to move.
The ancient Maya once occupied a vast geographic area in Central and South America. Their civilization extended to parts of what is now Mexico,
Honduras, and El Salvador, and most of Guatemala and Belize.
Llamas cannot carry men, heavy materials or for that matter tow stones, a recent experiment established that even kites could be applied with a
similar effort in mind.
Beyond that Byrd not only would I site that it is a practical explanation for many issues in respect to Mayan, Toltec and Aztec Civilizations, I would
site that to the best of my knowledge this is correct.
I do rememeber a conversation at ATS which cited the moving of a stone by American Indian cultures which far exceeded anything accomplished in the
