What a great thread Slayer, you always impress and bring good topics that have meat to still pick over (like one user mentioned, your topics have
meat, i agree) SnF sir.
About 12 yrs ago I had a video game contract working on an educational walk thru of Machu Picchu as a texture and asset artist. I had very little
knowledge of the Incas previously, but after doing weeks of research the whole history of Peru and Incans became a huge interest. The ability of craft
these people had was outstanding and beyond what is currently being displayed in stone masonry. I have little knowledge of Ollantaytambo but find
fascinating as usual. Some of the theories I'm hearing on this thread about how they made this structure has got my interest, like the stone melting
juice (hey plants are powerful too), or granite concrete (maybe doesn't require heat or chemicals, just sound?), or odd shaped blocks to prevent
synchronous vibrations? All very odd sounding but I'll wrap my head around them for a minute. I like this kind of exercise.
Recently watched a few vids (some with Childress in them, his voice kind of gets to me after awhile) about Tiwanaku and that place gets even crazier
in that the same huge sized blocks with very smooth surfaces are not only cookie cutter dimensions (assembly line maybe? all identical and precise?)
and megalithic proportions, but show weird "liquified" characteristics in the large drill holes in some of the blocks. I'm sure you are already
planning a thread on that site so I'll get back to the specific topic.
The large angular tumbled block everybody keeps pondering over looks to me like a huge chunk of a carved grand staircase that was broken off and
tossed like a rag by some huge cataclysm? In most of the the Incan structures I've researched the main features are gigantic walls meant to last,
doorways and windows in very purposeful places, but always lots of roads and staircases, especially in sacred places thought to be temples. It always
seems as if they funnel the traffic through specific doorways and portals, up or down giant staircases. It all feels like a huge palace in most of the
ancient sites with these similar features. When researching Machu Picchu the most odd part of the whole place was the temple of the sun, which had odd
tracks and grooves, and weird stairs and insets placed into it. Honestly one of the weirdest, oddly organic structures that reeks of a higher purpose,
whether real or superstitious I do not know.
Someone mentioned that they believed there might have been a one world government in the distant past, well one of the vids I watched talked about a
bowl discovered (Fuente Magna from Bolivia) with traditional motifs but also what appears to be a crude version of cuneiform (Sumerian writing), this
might be some connection possibly.
Also there's the uncanny similarities in interlocking stonework designs between Easter Island, Egypt and Peru. I find it interesting to say the
least. Also there's the connection with mummification that was done in China, Egypt and Canary Islands as well as by our ancient South Americans.
I'm looking forward to more of these threads Slayer, and I want to say that currently, with all these powderkeg topics like the mass shootings and
such, I'm really glad to see more "thinking" and less "drama" threads, such as this one.
Everybody keep up the good work on this insanely cool thread, i'll add what I can
