I've spent 2 years studying ancient history for a series of novels...and I'll just generalize and write bluntly...but we don't know sh*t. We do
guesswork and selectively choose, out of the few scant documents that survived, what is "legend" and what is "fact" based off what we are most
comfortable with. This means the likelihood of anything in this universe, or anything existing on this planet once upon a time, being more advanced
than we are is an idea that's thrown to the side despite that being exactly what the ancients have written down in their history. We dismiss it as
In Mesoamerica even less is known from an even later date (have the Spaniards largely to thank for that) and only a tiny, tiny fraction of their
records survived and it still has the majority of the 21st century gripping their seats with anticipation for 2012.
One commonality between many ancient sites is that there's no record of who built them or how. The Pyramid of the Sun, Stonehenge, the Moai, the Great
Pyramid, Machu Picchu etc. there's absolutely NOTHING written down about their construction process. There's no explanation for the correlation
between the pyramids in Teotihuacán and those of Giza which have the same layout and even base size (thus same designer) and many more mysterious
correlations. Even more perplexing is WHY these structures were built. It's as if the ancient people, that we know about, were either placed there
with it already built, or settled there. Another commonality is that all these civilizations had a pantheon of gods with very similar description and
I remember in regards to the Moai on Easter Island that oral histories recount how various people used divine power to command the statues to "walk".
The earliest accounts say a king named Tuu Ku Ihu moved them with the help of the god Makemake
. This is the only ancient account of how the
statues were moved (which sounds like a technological process that was being misunderstood by a primitive observer). One of the statues still at the
quarry is 70 ft tall and 270 tonnes btw.
Even more curious is how Makemake looked, as recorded on a petroglyph.
Which has similarity to one of the figures of Nazca.
And even ancient cave paintings from other parts of the world.
Ancient Egyptians did not build the Great Pyramid. They were around, they interacted with its creators, and they learned from them. That's my quick 2
cents as a crazy writer/researcher. Cya.
