:lol: You see, ALL you have to do to get famous is do something a bit bizarre every day consistently!  A creative enough 'something' can turn your life around!!

my ideas of how they got the stones up the ramps are as follows:

blocks had curved semi-circle sides made of wood that went on all four sides at the two ends of the block...making a circle at each end. then they wound a rope around the central block and hauled (rolled it) up the ramps. and they could have done it with counterweights made of sand ballast to pull the rope..  

at least thats what i would have advocated for as an ancient egyptian engineer back then....no advanced tech involved at all.

the pursuit of knowledge will force you to pick a side. Choose wisely.

I thought that this article on Resonance was very interesting:


Quote

Resonance in Neolithic Cultures of the Balkans

Balkan Relics
by Alex Putney for Human-Resonance.org
April 3, 2014
The impressive scale of creativity and advanced technical means of ancient humanity is on full display in all parts of the world, including those Paleolithic landscapes now submerged by oceans. Ancient megalithic sites are now being reconsidered in light of the recent discoveries of geopolymer chemistry suggesting many megaliths may actually be synthetic products made from reconstituted stone cements.

Posted Image


It should be added however, that the dots in the Balkans are only half the line (starting with dot E). On the east side of that axis, in Crimea and the Caucasus there are thousands of dolmens that follow that curved line of resonance. It's striking. Here is one such map:

Posted Image

The read dots are the dolmens, and they have a strange construction, and I heard one theory was that they have some kind of resonance.

They generally are a box with a round hole in the side like this:

Posted Image

The map with the concentric circles from Giza suggests to me that there could have been resonance eminating from the pyramids at Giza, which also have a strange construction, I think.

However, the map need not be exact - I think that there are many dolmens in the Balkans that don't fit that curved red line so neatly.

My geometry may not be what it once was, but I believe that any two points can be joined to create a line. Your post is nothing more than a fanciful, unwarranted extrapolation of that basic geometrical fact.

Your geometry is spot on.  In fact, we can construct a Great Circle through any two points you like, including your house and my house and any third point we choose.  Giza, anyone?

Yes it is but you need to take into consideration what I call FLE or FLEE, 'Fringe Line Exceptionalism', this means if a line, latitude, longitude, wobbly, wacky or bent line goes thru a point on the map that means it's exceptional and indicates advanced human technology or aliens, the fact that said line continues and goes elsewhere is completely UN-exceptional. Example much is made of the speed of light in meters going thru a part of G1 - the fact said lines goes through tens of thousands of other places is discounted or that said system of latitude and longitude were created x years after the structure/place came into existence...

People aren't dismissing your theme out of hand, they are dismissing it because it has no basis in reality. You continue to take the worst translation (Mercer's) of a multiply sourced and combined text written in a language you know nothing about and from 150 years after the GP's construction and pretend, while ignoring that it is found in the tomb and addressed to Unis, that its a construction manual for an object (the GP) 150 years before Unis' reign. You are the reason your theme isn't taken seriously as you've not shown any knowledge of the subject at hand and therein lies your problem.

A few notes:
  • The reference  to Davidovits and his speculations in regards to earlier megalithic constructions has been previously well addressed on these pages. And has no credible substance, ie disproven. A search under my name will provide previous discussions.
  • Portal holes in burial "monuments" are not an uncommon practice and are even represented in the non-lithic burial practices of representatives of the North American Algonquin/Algonquian language groups (research keyword: spirit house).
  • It would be indeed surprising if a rather tightly enclosed lithic structure did not present "resonant properties". Recording engineers, musicians, and certain structures frequently utilize the qualities of a "hard room". Hence the source of natural or artificial reverberation or "reverb".
Any presumption or claim in regards to Ley lines, "sacred circles", or other forms of geographical confusion can be promptly discounted. Such matters have also been well addressed and found to be sorely lacking in validity.

One curious thing for me is that there have been lots of stonehenges found in Asia, Europe, and Africa, but few found in the Americas. In Europe, the stonehenges are typically in regions near the ocean, suggesting that the megalithic peoples traveled by boat on the ocean. The two best cases for stonehenges of which I know are in New Salem, New Hampshire - America's Stonehenge, and in Amapa on the eastern coast of Brazil. Both of those sites are by the ocean on the part of the landmass pointing toward Europe. The megaliths have round holes like those found in Armenia's megaliths.

Deep inland in Brazil in XIngu there was apparently also an ancient society that made wide straight roads and wide circular communal spaces. The straightness of the roads reminds me of the roads at Nazca.

This is said to be a "reconstruction (based on archaeological evidence and similarities with todays traditional architecture among some Xingu groups) of the precolumbian settlement Kuhikugu."
http://www.worldhist...opic126145.html

And farther still, in northern Argentina we have a park of over 100 menhirs (standing megaliths). Then on the other side of Latin America we have Puma Punku and the associated site of Sillustani includes a stonehenge and circular towers housing burial remains.

Sillustani Ruins, Puno, Peru

And it's striking the similarity of the reed boats in lake Titicaca to those in Egypt. Lake Titicaca and the Puma Punku ruins are also reminiscient of Egypt in that the stone blocks making up Puma Punku's and Giza's pyramids and temples are huge and fitted together perfectly close without mortar.

Puma Punku, the site in northern Argentina, the Xingu roads, and the stonehenge on Brazil's eastern tip  point in a line to Easter Island in the Pacific and to Africa in the Atlantic. It's interesting and suggests a connection. The oceans were transversable by ancient means as the voyage in the movie Kon Tiki showed.

The more primitive a technology, the more limited it is.  There are only so many ways to build a pyramid; there are only so many ways to build a reed boat.  The further back to the foundational unit you go, the less relevant similarities become.

Yep, a straight road. Totally mysterious and without precedent. One can only imagine the deep guile and ancient wisdom of people creating roads that lead directly from one place to another.

The Xingu villages dates from around 1200 AD at the earliest.
This road (The Appian Way) was begun in 312 BC, so the concept of straight roads is hardly a new concept. Btw the Nazca lines weren't roads, if they had been they would have disappeared long ago.

Very often similar problems will lead to similar solutions. Why is that surprising ?

Its a great idea and works.  If a 'wheelie thing' gets stuck you can puck and pull and .... :(   but if you apply rotation to the rim or axle, it easily rolls on ... even more so compared to dragging a block.

It works fantastically on a stuck tractor - a cable is attached to and wound around the  the wheel hub (or an extension attached to the wheel bolts ) and secured to  a tree or something,  and it will winch itself out instead of the wheel just slipping and rotating on the spot.

Apparently it isnt accepted as the ancient method - but it would work (and decrease the load applied needed and allow a much steeper ramp angle)
