I read some time ago the Frank Joseph book on The Lost Civilisation of Lemuria. Its one of those books that reminds one of the artefacts that pop up
deep in mines with no explanation. The artifact or very ancient terracing carried out in difficult and far apart countries. Its well researched and
photographed and his ideas are clearly too pioneering for the average archaelogist to countenance and truly lie in the world of supposition, however I

The Moai are fascinating and when one sees the actualy size of these things, it just makes me feel we must try to get some kind of line to who
occupied this world that could accomplish this size of building and manoeuvrability of massive blocks. We don't seem to have any primal memory of
this ability ourselves. I don't buy into the huge angelic idea simply because, although the angels carried measuring rods in the early parts of the
bible, (something to do with measuring the temple I think), they were never linked to construction or masonry work. The carvings seem to go back to
the whirly circle, within a circle, figure of eight era, but the more we see, the further we seem to get from the answer. I also wonder why the Moai
face out to sea, If I had carved that I'd want to look at it, not the back of its head.
