What amazes me more than this video is that people are still falling for the "Mysteries of Egypt" dialog that seems to proliferate on a viral level
with all things Egypt and tanget off from there to everything else megalithic.
1. We know the Egyptian language, can read it, and have a wealth of records they left, as well as copious scholarship in the results of entire armies
of Historians and Archaeologists.
2. We have solid examples of the evolution of pyramid building as well as the learning curves, mistakes and engineering principles successful in
Pharaoh Sneferu's 3 pyramids, (the first 3 pyramid attempts ever built) where we see the crumbled remains of the first failed attempt at Median,
where then we get the bent pyramid (which was kinda successful as proof of concept) and then eventually the first "TRUE" pyramid with the successful
completion of the Red Pyramid.
3. We know the Whos, the Wheres, the Whats, and Whens, and most of the Hows as well. We have their tools. We have the qarrries. We have the worker
villages attached to sites. We even have worker graphitti surreptitiously carved into some stones, and in most cases the names of the architects, as
well as their own tombs, who were in charge of and responsible for the engineering .
4. The OP video isn't the first to demonstrate some primitive alternatives to stone work. Moving and cutting megalithic stone isn't as difficult
as many would have people think. Further, many of these bronze age megalithic sites come from cultures still familiar with stone age technology. A
few hundred thousand years of experience in shaping precision stone tools using stone and bone should count for something, no?
There is very little by way of "mystery" or magical anything to megalithic building should anyone want to use the internet for what it was invented
for and research the abundance of scholarship and academic resources online addressing these topics.
Then again, for some, the internet is cats.
