According to this picture, he's just using a pully system and nothing else. The box on top simply looks like.. a box, perhaps helping to bind the
tripod together. It doesn't seem to have anything else to it. Maybe the tripod itself, or the kind of wood it's made of, combined with the pully
system is all it took to lift those slabs. Perhaps not.
I'm a big fan of this mystery as well. I do have another theory that I kind of stumbled upon not all that long ago. When I have time, I'll hammer
out all the details in a post. I don't know if I'm right, but I would certainly love to know more sides to this mystery because it's really
The flaw I see in this theory is, the box looks nothing more than a box, as you can see the poles go inside of it, so it's not quartz. Also, there
lacks the two metal flats on either side to support the comparison with the first image. Also, if the box was quartz, it seems like the whole tripod
would be lifted and not the stone. I think we're missing something here. Maybe the picture was taken in a manner where he didn't want to give up his
secret, but if you look close, you can see he's actually lifting a slab with just what you see there.
Cool idea though.
