Firstly, I'd like to applaud you for having an idea about Nazca Lines I've never heard before! It's an attractive idea and why not? Maybe
they just loved the idea about people on the Moon looking back? A lot of people lie on their backs and look to the stars wondering if anyone out there
is wondering the same thing...I know I've done it
The problem with the idea is finding any support for it...The lines have been studied intensively for decades. The geoglyphs have been compared to
other Andean symbols and represent fertility symbols. The process of how they were created has been reproduced using contemporary methods. The
conclusions are that the lines were *probably* created for fertility of the population and the surrounding landscape.
As is usual for early cultures, there was a focus on religious practice and the attentions of the gods. If the lines were trying to communicate with
anyone in the skies it was probably the 'gods.' The Nazca area is spit dry and a harsh environment to thrive in. Asking for good fortune or the
favor of rain gods may well have been an important aspect of their lives.
