The pyramids are 14 stories high. Think about that aspect alone.
A friend of mine is a contractor and visited Egypt and the pyramids with his wife. When he returned, the first thing he said to me was, "nobody can
tell me those pyramids were built by humans back in 3000 BC. To move those mammoth stones which weighed an average of 2.5 tons and lifting them just
2 stories would be a feat at today's technological standards!" He went on to say that it boggled his mind seeing how tight the joints were and how
over 2 million stones were cut and lifted to such heights.
For all the theories that have tried to explain how these pyramids were built, doesn't it say something to the fact that even the brightest
engineering minds can't agree on how they were built. That speaks volumes.
It says two things to me.
1: your friend wouldn't last very long in a world where things are not done for them.
2: that we have no need to build pyramids so we don't put the effort into building them. We've sent people to the moon. Tell that to an Egyptian 3000
years ago and he'd boil you for being a demon.
They were not stupid, but they were also living in a time where if you had a problem, you developed novel ways to over come it. You didn't throw your
hands in the air and go "Naww, that's stupid. I can't do that. I'm going to the pub." - they had nasty people with whips and stuff saying "Yes you
are. Go on, it's not that hard." and thinkers with the ability to think laterally would devise ways to achieve the impossible.
We have no such need. In fact, the worst thing we have to put up with is getting that parking space before that tosser from Finance gets it, and you
have to walk 20 meters in the rain to get to the office before you can grab your coffee mocha from the coffee machine and have a ciggy with Mick and
Alicia before you go in and start doing helpdesk.
That's it. Why would people who spend their entire day either in automatic pilot mode because every single thing is done for them, or in barely there
mode because they instantly need something superficial, be able to comprehend the mind set of people who build massive structures.
I look at a sky scraper. I don't go "Phwoar I couldn't do that. No way can humans do that!" because I've never seen a crane. We don't know how they
did things because we don't need to do the same things.
There are some tribes on this planet who have intricate subtle ways of doing things. Small little steps that take on no obvious meaning. But put
together, the bigger picture comes into focus, and they manage to catch a massive bounty of (insert thing)... thinking of it as a direct issue, we'd
never come up with it. But to someone who lives it, they have come up with it, do it, and it's not space magic!
Other than that, it might be aliens. But I wish, like god, they'd left us a little bit of evidence other than our vastly complex imaginations...
