Thanks, and in response to your question yes headless remains have been found as well as trophy heads, the most intriguing remains are those which had
a high status burial despite having their heads removed, suggesting they lost them in accepted cultural rituals.

You're right to try to picture the sense of occasion, thats the motivating factor for relatively few Nazca to continually produce the lines in the
desert season after season...they enjoyed the activities.
That's a Paracas textile yes, have a glimpse here of their amazing range of design;
For me the textiles are more of an achievement than the lines.

That's not a flaw, there is no evidence for the tops of any mountains having been cut off, the creation of all the lines involved light construction
methods, clearing away the top few inches of dust and stones.
Flawed methodology is when people have tried to understand the reason for the lines creation without taking the least interest in the culture that
created them, their motivation has to be found in other cultural expressions, and the main interest of their culture was head hunting.

And that's the sum of much of what i'm seeing here... lets give the visitors from inner space a chance.

Thanks, i think in some ways this is similar to what you mentioned about the Heb sed festival of Egypt, a regular gathering of the people to witness
the King prove himself within a sacred space, playing out a drama that also had a cosmological basis, differences in approach of course, but as you
say, this was a common element of many ancient cultures.
