I am of the thought process that humans have been around much longer than previously thought and that maybe some sort of cataclysmic (sp?) event happened to wipe out most people in the past, making it start over again.
With that in mind, I tend to believe that the ancient Egyptians may have been MUCH more advanced than we thought...and may have had techniques using water and sound to aid in the construction of the pyramids.
Any others out there who can help me and/or criticize this thought?? Although I do lean in this direction now, I did not used to and I do appreciate all thoughts (even if you do not agree). So, thanks ahead of time to you all.
P.S. Just so you do not think I am uninformed,
I do have a degree in Anthropology with specifics
in Egyptology...just trying to think outside the box.

can you give further detail on where you got the idea that levitating blocks are somehow involved in egyptology
I know two sources for this myth and they are both not inm the sligtest bit credible
I don't believe you are getting this just from what Tesla never actually proved by practical demonstration
how long has it been since you got your degree
I watched a program on either Discovery or N.G over the festive period and they were manipulating sand using a tuning fork.The sand was placed upon some metallic surface (looked like a ferrous metal to me) and when the tuning fork was hit a certain way the sand would move and/or form a pattern similar to how iron filings react when a magnet is placed near them.
Now, I am fine with the crticism of the idea and the opportunity to hear your ideas (all of you), but please refrain from flaming me or anybody. Suggest all you want but I respect your opinions and look forward to respectful and intelligent (albeit maybe radical) ideas

I think it's entirely possible that ancient Egyptians had a method of moving and lifting stone that's been forgotten or kept secret all these years. I mean, how many documentaries with red faced perplexed scientists taking 3 days to lift a 600lb stone do you have to watch, to realize that they have no idea how it was really done? Most sources seem to agree it required one stone block placed every 3 minutes to complete the pyramid in the 20 year period they claim it was built. There are blocks weighing as much as 45 tons above the King's chamber in the great pyramid and I've never seen anything like an explanation as to how they were placed there - or even moved from the quarry. Then there's the stone blocks at Baalbek... moving those defies explanation.
I really wish we could discuss these things here but it seems like the same people jump on every thread concerning ancient buildings and poo-poo anything that's not doctrine.
it's ridiculous to think they put all the stones in by hand with no other technological advantage in the time frame assumed
I really wish we could discuss these things
But IMO your might find some answers that could connect the question with the Sumarians they were a strange culture that had some very clever ways of using "unexplained ways" to solve problems.
yeah, the Sumerians were a strange culture
