Hello everyone. I would like to suggest a new project idea. In particular, as someone with an engineering background, feats of engineering which baffle modern engineers are of particular interest to me. I'm curious how various megalithic structures were built, particularly the ones in South America. There are megalithic structures which appear to be pre-Inca, which the Inca merely colonized and built upon. These structures have absolutely massive stones which fit together so tightly that razor blades can't be slipped between them. At first glance, the structures look like they were soft at one point and were smooshed into place. A lot of them have nubs on them that look like a point where the stone was pinched off of a larger lump. They all bulge out slightly. None of them are held together with any mortar.
Unlike structures like Stone Henge, which are rough and stacked, and could plausibly be built using brute force or clever use of pivoting and leverage, the megalithic structures at Machiu Picchiu and Sacsayhuamán defy any modern engineering explanation. From the perspective of an engineer, it would be great to get a glimpse of how these were built.
Can the RVers get high enough resolution a view to discern engineering insights like what I'm asking about? I'm genuinely less interested in whether it was giants or nephilim or aliens or really smart people who did this than what exactly they did. Were the stones cast? Melted from other material and formed? Poured in place and hardened by some reaction or some catalyst like epoxy or energetic impulse like UV curing resins?
if you go back and re-watch the mystery of the giza pyramid video, Daz seems to be describing steam powered tools used to 'levitate' the blocks. Dick seems to describe hydraulic fracturing being used in the mining process.
it sounds like the ancients had engineered geothermal systems like this; https://energy.mit.edu/research/future-geothermal-energy/
How were the massive stones conformed to each other though? They look like they were giant pliable blobs that were squished into place before they solidified. The Giza pyramid video doesn't address this, and the Egyptian pyramids aren't known for the features observed at the Peruvian megalithic structures.
Egyptian pyramids and buildings that surrounds them does have all the features of the Peruvian megalithic structures, including: irregular size and shapes of casing stones and tight fit between them, strange knobs on these stones etc...
