I am also, in awe of these stones. They melt into one another,as if the powers to do so, were polished with thoughts and magics, long forgotten.

Here is the aforementioned thread from Apr 11:
Some interesting info relating to chelation:
The organo-mineral complexes are obtained through the intermediary of oxalates, tartrates, succinates, fulvates, etc. .(3) It is known also that the organo-mineral complexes have a very strong dissolving action on the natural silico-aluminates (feldspar, hornblende, laterite, clorite,...) their dissoving action being 2 3 times greater than that of sulphuric acid or hydrochloric acid (4). The most highly acctive organo-mineral complexes are those obtained with oxalic acid, which is found in large quantities in numerous plants (5).
Now, if modern Amerinds were not using chelation, I would say it was a loss of knowledge. The methodology seems to have been known, if by no one else other than shaman and the philosopher that observed nature.
There is already several threads made on these two subjects, but I would like to combine the two methods and reinforce that this would be the only logical way to build structures this massive and complex.

Thanks for the info mate
That's kind of what I think about some of these massive blocks, they either left some unfinished, or deliberately left them for another purpose.....what, I don't know. I would have personally cleaned them up a little more if going to all that effort to build them. They definitely look like softened stone "dags" though.
I also agree there's a few comparisons on Mars to structures down here I think, maybe with pyramids and possibly somethings like the sphinx. There's a real mystery, to me at least, as to who was colonizing these parts in the distant past. Everything from white bearded men to giants could have been there and other places, but I left out any theories in regard to this as to focus more on the structures themselves. That would have opened up a whole big can of worms! I'll add a close up of a section of wall:To me it really does look like the stone was softened, and scraped here.
