As far as "laser precision cuts" this is also an exageration. Many cuts look great from far away, but once you get up close you can see they are not that straight and often filled with mortar.
Greater precision was possible, but it was difficult, and therefore expensive, and a lot less common than most works.
Ancient Egypt, India, Peru, Bolivia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Iran, Armenia, Tunisia, Greece & Italy. These countries, thousands of miles apart, share the same technology used by Ancient builders.
Academic archeology initially thought they had (as always) a religious/ceremonial use. However, scientists did tests and revealed that the clamps were used to pour metal in order to freeze and hold the megaliths together. There are pieces of poured metal still present in Ethiopia to back up scientists’ claims.

I find ancient undocumented history (anything not destroyed or
Obfuscated eg. Library of Alexandria) fascinating!
I doubt that we will ever know the absolute truth, although I believe we will keep uncovering juicy tidbits of our past that one day will paint a clearer picture of who we are and where our true origins lie.

That idea that modern humans dont have the technology to lift the "heavy" stones of the past remains as accurate as saying modern humans have too weak arms to open doors because they play too much consoles.

I've heard that idea before... problem is machu pichu might be some sort of composite pouring or molded...
Can't see that happening with solid granite or diorite... Melting and reforming stone might be possible, but we know where most of these stones came from... and in many cases the quarries were miles away
IF they were melted and reformed they wouldn't maintain their structure which is how we know where they came from
These blocks were transported from one place to another in one solid piece

I'm not sure how he figured it out, but I remember reading about this guy in Florida who built the coral castle all by himself for some gold digger skank that never returned his affections.
He figured out the Egyptians method for cutting and moving colossal objects. It was frequency based. I don't get why there is not a massive effort by scientists to understand what frequency he was using, we should all devote more time and effort to understanding that guy, he hasn't even been dead a hundred years. You can still go to Florida, see his corral castle he built, and see the instruments he used. He should be known as one of the greatest minds in American history. Right next to Ben Franklin and Tesla
