How Ancient Megaliths Were Transported and Shaped

If there is one enigma that seems to be impossible to solve, it is how those gigantic megalithic rocks in many parts of the world, each weighing hundreds to more than a thousand tons, were moved tens of kilometers across valleys, rivers, and steep cliffs by ancient workers without the metallic tools and means of transport that we have today, and then precisely shaped into polygonal blocks that fit into each other almost flawlessly to form gigantic walls. How on earth did they do that? It is mind-boggling. It seems they intended to taunt our reasoning capabilities today, or were the ancients sending us a message or something?

Adding to the enigma is that the same type of polygonal shapes of the megaliths and similar workmanship are found in places where they had no people-to-people contacts during ancient times, as they were in different continents separated by wide oceans. One example of that is Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean and Egypt in the Mediterranean Sea. Both places have similar polygonal megalithic walls, yet they had no contacts when those structures were built. In Aswan, Egypt, an unfinished megalith has parallel scraping marks that are similar to the scraping marks in megaliths in Ollantaytambo, Peru — as if the ancients were simply scooping soft ice cream, instead of hard granite! Some megaliths in Egypt and Peru even have what seems to be diamond drill holes and rotary diamond cutter marks.

No remnants of ancient machines or advanced tools were found in any of those sites.  In the first place, you do not expect to find those advanced machines in those remote places like mountain tops, isolated islands, and dry deserts, where electricity supply was not available and access is difficult to impossible.

My mind ran into high gear to find a way how to explain the enigma. Did the ancients possess some kind of secret high technology to accomplish those herculean tasks? For a time, I even considered the possibility that they were able to somehow float the heavy rocks into the air.

What can be observed worldwide is that the much bigger, more precisely “engineered” and polygonally-shaped blocks often underlie the less precisely-shaped, smaller, and rougher set of blocks. That means the more ancient the megaliths are, the better the whatever technology used. It means that as time went on, the workers became worse and worse in workmanship. Hmm…. that is a clue. Personally, I have this naughty idea about the ancients understanding very well the nature of our physical reality.

Centuries ago, a riddle was posed by a philosopher:  “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”   That question can be answered by three guys under three different levels of understanding: 

(1)  Ordinary man on the street:  “Yes, it does make a sound.  Things we don’t see or hear happen all the time.  If an event is not seen or heard by people, that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen or doesn’t exist.  A falling tree would make a sound, no matter who is or isn’t around.  Sound is sound and it doesn’t rely on people to hear it.  The universe doesn’t revolve around people.  Forests existed before man did, and man did not invent trees.  If a tree is falling and just because no one is around, is it going to say, “Oh, there’s no human around.  Let me gently fall into the ground”. “

(2)  An educated man who is scientific-minded:  “No, it does not make a sound.  Sound is vibration, transmitted to our senses through the mechanism of the ear, and recognized as sound only at our nerve centers. The falling of the tree or any other disturbance will produce vibration of the air. If there be no ears to hear, there will be no sound.”

(3)  A person who understands the meaning of quantum mechanics, as well as the message by ancients and sages that this world is an illusion: “No, it does not make a sound  —  because if there is no mind that is present there to perceive the forest, then there is actually no forest there, no tree, no falling down of anything, and no sound. And even if there is a mind present there, there is still no actual forest and no falling tree — for the forest and the falling tree would be merely virtual constructions by that mind.”

Now back to the megaliths. Based on similar reasoning by Guy #3 above, he will say: “No, it is not necessary for those ancients to had actually moved those huge megalithic blocks across land because there was no land to speak of. Even now, there is no land to speak of because there is no such thing as “out there”. The world we see now is a virtual construction of our own minds based on formless information being sent to our minds from a source. The minds of the ancients only needed to alter the information that our minds receive today to make our minds display a virtual and enigmatic megalithic wall, which then prompts the thinking aspects of our minds to work overtime to process the “impossible” images.”

What do you think people?

I am a Filipino and a geologist by profession but I have also been an ardent searcher for answers to the fundamental questions of human existence ever since 42 years ago. It has been a long, lonely and difficult journey. Why are we here? Where did we come from? What on earth is this world where I found my self in? Surprisingly, I found out that the answers are right there under our noses. There just need to be some adjustments in the way people think.
