Thank you very much for posting this. I had not heard about this before either.
I think we tend to imagine an ancient advanced civilization the wrong way most of the time.
If we ponder the question further, about why these monuments and cities were buildt in stone, one eventually will realize that not only were some
definitely buildt for preservation, but to also withstand earthquakes and, something I rarely see people mentioning, they were ecological too!
These people utilized nature to its full extent and did not need a lot of things we take for granted today.
They have clothing, nutrition and shelter, in a small community. After tending to whatever their daily duties were, they had all the time in the world
to be sophisticated and truly communicate with each other.
Sounds an awful lot like paradise to me, excluding the sacrificing that may have taken place.
I too believe that there have been very advanced civilizations here before us, some human and some not, but then again, I don't think we are
indigenous to Earth in the first place either. At least not in this form.
So many places I want to visit... They keep stacking up.
