I watched the video and my favorite part is the precision stoneworking.
I have no idea how people in the past cut out 600 ton granite blocks and polished the sides to an amazing degree, or how they cut the grooves in the
stones that look too precise for chisel work. So I'm fascinated by that mystery.
But it does seem like a leap to conclude that anything we can't explain like that must have involved aliens.
The Nazca lines are interesting too. I think of them as the Nazca version of some of the great cathedrals of Europe built centuries ago. Again my
first guess would not be alien involvement, but rather a form of communication with a god or gods. Where do gods live? Often in the heavens, so why
not make large drawings that can be seen by those gods in the heavens?
Also, the concept of runways doesn't seem consistent with interstellar travel, because if the propulsion systems are so advanced, it seems like maybe
the alien spacecraft could just land anywhere the ground was hard enough to support some landing struts, and wouldn't need runways.
But I admit to buying Von Daniken's book and looking at the evidence and giving this some thought before deciding that some of the evidence is open
to multiple interpretations. Even Von Daniken admits that the evidence in fact IS subject to multiple interpretations and his is not the only one and
may not even be the right one.
Oh and thanks for explaining the director's account, that solves the 10 minute limit mystery!
