No, what you think is mortar is nothing but 'vitrification', lol.
And it could be the result of lichens.
But you are not really serious, right?
The blocks I posted an enlarged pic of (from the same wall) don't show any mortar.
And the 'gaps' are shadows. I can post a similar image using YOUR photos.
That's your picture I can assure you.
Looks like mortar or some filling material to me. The point is that if you are looking for evidence of Inca high precision that will not do.
Lichen, shadows or not it's not evidence.
One other minor question. Can we be sure where they got the stones from? Are we sure that they cut them? Or was it stone from an already dismantled wall. Because we know that recycling of old blocks did occur.

The technology was not available to the Aymara indians. Plus on the AA documentary they made the obvious point that such an endeavour would need planning, blueprints, language, logistics writing, number skills, and this is something the Aymara were known not to possess.
