Many in the field are starting to understand the similarities between structures across the globe, particularly the common pyramid form. Indonesia and central America are two places where the structers have striking similarities, including twin headed dragons.

It would seem that Puma Punku was a pyramid at one time, at least that is what it's being called.

Does #2 really look like a pyramid? Or could it be that whoever made this graph was limited in the Spanish language to the point that all unknown buildings are "pyramids" for him/her/it?

  The Spartan....

  yes, the Ourboros are ,very specific,  circular patterns... appearing in diverse places around the earth in times that were/are believed to provide little to no human interaction between those places....   so i find it interesting that the circular patterns are SO specific.

If Common sense taught ancient man "That you need at least 3 or more walls OVER a roof"  ,as you stated above..  no wonder  they had "maybe some rocks falling on them"   lol,  i know what you meant to say...  but i doubt if Dolmens were dwellings ,if that is your inference, with the walls and roof statement... kinda drafty!    I just find it very Interesting when evidence reveals Globally ,more or less,  ... shared information or traditions in times far earlier than believed possible by the most commonly agreed upon assumptions.  Don't you?

A pyramid is a building where the outer surfaces are triangular and converge at a point. The base of a pyramid can be trilateral, quadrilateral, or any polygon shape, meaning that a pyramid has at least four faces (base plus at least three triangular faces). The five-face square pyramid is a common version.

Who said all pyramids had to look like the Great Pyramid?

ehm... yes and where do they converge on building 2? in one, two or no points?

Only the Akapana structure is considered to have been something of a pyramid shape.

But not much is left of any of the original structures:  they now are all nothing but heaps of rubble, or only the fundaments are left.

But what's left is still very impressive, and when I was there (1991) the Argentinian (? not sure) archeologists were still very busy digging.

Abramelin - do you know of any research that exists showing the actual shape of the structure as it was then? I have only found diagrams of the stones and how they fit. It may be that we will never know. But these stones don't look like they were cut to forma pyramid, just a base square platform.

Hi Sandman (I like your name, btw, it makes me think of Neil Gayman's books),

I only know of this site:
http://www.archaeolo...naku/index.html

As far as I know it's the only website about archeological digs at the Tiwanaku/Pumu Punku site.

I have asked these archeologists who were digging when I was there many questions in English and in my best Spanish, but they were reluctant to answer any questions. And not even when I said that is was people like me, and millions of others paying tax for their work,and that they should at least have the decency to even pretend to give me an answer.

wow Abremelin , appreciate the insight. they did not want to talk eah..well there's something anyway. The site has been looted for generations so guess hard to really know. I would like to see more recent analysis at PP, but don't expect the bolivian's to relenquish any of this littel jewell to anyone. I did mail a very prominant geologist, you have seen him in all the shows regarding the age of the spinx, and asked for his interpretations of PP. He replied saying that he wished he could visit the site to make analysis, and felt it to be extremely interesting.

Maybe we can get some credentialed preple there to publish more. (need to look up Neil Gayman..)I'm a bit jealous, you having actually visited the site. BTW..to me item #2 does look like a stylelized pyramid, but not sure if it fits the exact definition of one.
