You can’t drill and shape stones as you would metal or wood, especially hard stones like granite, because they are made of extremely hard mineral particles that overheat and wear down the tool bit.
Normally it takes a special diamond cutting wheel and a slowly turning drill bit, lots of cooling fluid, and very slow progress to drill through granite.
A better method is sonic drilling. Sound vibrations are sent through a drill bit or even a metal pipe, so that the end in contact with the stone surface acts as a high-frequency jack-hammer. The drill barely needs to turn, since it’s the vibrational impacts and shattering that do the job.
Compared to conventional drilling, this method is faster, puts less wear on the tool bit, and takes less energy.
So, conceivably one could turn the handle of a large tuning fork into a cutting rod, whether a drill tube or drill bit, and thereby have a sonic drill that can handle hard stones. Even a copper tube would cut into granite in that case. Or instead of a tube, the end could be flat like a chisel or spade to cut instead of drill.
To make a tuning fork sonic drill, the resonant frequency of the cutting rod must match the frequency of the fork it’s attached to. The way it works is that transverse vibrations from the tines move the bottom of the U-shape up and down, which sends longitudinal vibrations down through the cutting rod.
Edward Leedskalnin's other four pamphlets addressed his theories on magnetism, detailing his theories on the interaction of electricity, magnetism and the body; Leedskalnin also included a number of simple experiments to validate his theories.
Most importantly, Edward Leedskalnin claimed that all matter was being acted upon by what he called "individual magnets". Simply a positive and a negative like a battery. It is obvious from the pamphlets that he produced that this theory became the base of all of his work, and most likely thoughts as well. He also attempted to claim that scientists of his time were looking in the wrong place for their understanding of electricity, and that they were only observing "one half of the whole concept" with "one sided tools of measurement". (Info from Ed's own scientific pamphlets).
Some believe that a black box which was placed on top of the tripod he used to help move the stones was the source of the magnetism.
Acoustic engineers have developed small, concave piezoelectric transducers enabling the generation of standing waves for acoustic levitation. Both water and small living organisms (like the beetle, above) have been levitated using ultrasound, while the ancients used giant low-frequency transducers. During the conquest of the Americas, historian Garcilaso de la Vega documented the destruction of giant granite bowls at Inca sites in the Andes having diameters that exceeded the height of two men. Concave granite basins were also found in the passage chambers of Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange, in Ireland. Just as in the case of the pyramid chambers, the world's megalithic chambers also produced lightwater vapor.
So how does sound do its thing in a stone?
Well, when a stone vibrates at its resonant frequency, a standing wave of compression/expansion sets up within it. What makes stones unique is that they are piezo-electric, meaning they convert pressure into electricity.
Therefore, applying sound to a stone converts that sound into electromagnetic or electrogravitational energy.
Imagine that - you hit a large tuning fork with a hammer, apply the bottom of its handle to the side of a stone, the stone vibrates in sympathy, standing waves arise within the stone, and those standing waves turn into electromagnetic or gravitational waves.
How gravitational waves are produced this way is implied in my other physics Research Notes. In short, longitudinal acoustic waves in stones create longitudinal magnetic vector potential waves within the stone, thanks to the piezoelectric effect, and these are identically gravitational potential waves.
When gravitational potential waves are made to be standing waves, you have a stable gravitational node or antinode at the center of the stone - essentially an artificial vibrating center of gravity. That alone may affect the stone’s weight (not to mention, may open portals if the gravitational node is sufficiently intense).
Now, by additionally muting the opposing end of the stone (say through a non-vibrating rod pressed against it) the node shifts a bit off center, thereby unbalancing the stone’s center of gravity. If shifted upwards, the stone will become lighter.
The point of muting and point of applied vibration can be shifted to direct the stones.
The many astoundingly beautiful monuments of the Giza plateau, along the Nile River in Egypt, display a remarkably precise set of engineering specifications and psychoacoustic effects that indicate an ancient biorhythmic synchronization network once operated on a global scale. Preceding the Dynasties of the Pharaohs by several thousand years, this global pyramid culture was a technologically advanced Sanskrit world nation that employed these giant crystalline structures to synchronize the pineal, hypothalamus and pituitary glands with the human heartbeat at temples and sacred sites worldwide.

Imagine now hundreds of people making sound with horns or vibrating rocks to the right tone.

Gonna have to say I disagree. If we once had advanced technologies of any type and they were then forgotten then wouldn't they have developed again in the natural evolution of technology? We still cannot move 100 ton blocks of stone with any type of technology other than pure mechanical yet we are almost at quantum computing. To me, the ancient structures point to non-human interaction. I think the newest episode of Ancient Aliens puts forth some very good evidence for this.

Puma Punku and Sacsayhuaman disagree.
To the OP, I definitely think there was some type of technology lost or hidden from us, which should be clear when looking at any megalith from around the world. I refuse to believe stone cutters and slaves/man power created these structures.
We know from ancient Indian legends that at some point shrouded in the mists of time, White men landed on the shores of the New World, long before Columbus. Every Indian society of which we have any knowledge records this arrival and refers to a White God who brought them their system of science, and engineering, gave them their legal codes, and helped them achieve a high level of civilization. But who was this HIGH GOD? And how did he and his relatives cross a vast unknown Ocean to arrive in a New World? From these ancient legends we learn that these White Gods arrived in huge foreign ships with Swan wings, hulls gleaming so brightly that they looked like giant serpents gliding over the water. When they reached the shore, strange men emerged from the ships, fair skinned and blue eyed, wearing gowns of a course black material with a circular opening at the neck and short wide sleeves.
The legend of a particular white God has also survived to our day from all the ancient civilizations of Central and South America. The Toltecs and Aztec of Mexico called him Quetzalcoatl, the Incas called him Viracoha, to the Maya he was Kukulcan who brought their laws, also their script, and was worshiped like a god by the people. To the Chibchas he was Bochia, the White Mantle of Light. To those of Peru he was Hyustus, and to this day they will tell you that he was fair, and had blue eyes.
According to two of the chroniclers White Men with beards turned up on the shores of Lake Titicaca, built a great city, and taught the inhabitants a more civilized way of life. The Indians said that the White Gods built this city 2000 years before the time of the Incas.

You're the one talking about aliens and I'm the one saying stone cutters and primitive tools did not build said megaliths. Maybe you missed the part where I said I believe we lost or had technology hidden from us. Makes sense, the Gov't and Big Biz are hiding lots of technology from us today.
So its either we had knowledge that was forgotten or it was aliens, but it definitely was not primitive man using primitive tools and manpower.
