Teotihuacan people used 30 cm thick layer of Mica from Brasil. Mica was used on an inner layer of the pyramid of Sun where it couldnt be seen. Mica is stable when exposed to electricity, light, moisture, and extreme temperatures. Now why is Mica so important to travel thousands of km? Light or electricity perhaps?

I wonder if it might have been used to transfer SUN Light  into interior parts of the pyramid? Can anyone verify that an interior chamber exists   .. with a Mica Ceiling?

Lightly in thread you provide no where says thats Mica layer hidden. No why would one hide decoration? No sense at all.

...or it's bright and shiny and fun to look at and does not naturally occur near the city?

It's been a while since I've seen such a cheap shot to build up mystery where none is inherently.

Bright and shiny for god(s) to look at.

Large deposits of Mica are found in New Mexico.
http://newmexicooutd..._Mine_Peak.html
http://findermaker.b...-mines-and.html

And it is only about 1000 miles from Mexico City, whereas Brazil is 2 to 2 1/2 times as far.

What makes you think this is Brazilian mica?

I tend to agree with Jayle, that the mica was probably a decoration for the Gods. Or, maybe it was once an exterior decoration that got paved over. Those pyramids are built of hundreds of layers. Each generation adding a new layer of stone and decorations over what previous generations had done.

Edit: The pieces look comparable to those found currently in New Mexico.

Would be interesting to know what they were thinking. But that's impossible, of course.

Die and Jay, you cant be serious. They did it for Gods. And why they didnt use something different for Gods? And why only in Temple of Sun?

And most importantly why 30 cm and not 5cm if is for decoration.

Generally thought to be about absorbing the solar energy that was harnessed for feats such as building the things in the first place. Mica is used as a resistance plate to contain energy.

Why only the Pyramid of the Sun? Probably because it was Hard to Get.... expensive in resources.

It was a Temple, right? So what is hard about the belief that the decoration is for the Gods' benefit? We decorate churches with stained glass and all kinds of iconography, partly to remind people of events and partly to decorate the structure so it is pleasing to the Lord. Do you propose that all temple/pyramid decorations were non-religious?

Because that is how much they brought to the site. If you have 20,000 bricks to build a patio, you don't just throw the last 8,000 of them away when you are done, you use them.

Die beat me to this.

But I concede the point that bringing logic and reason to this thread is an unfair contribution, and I can see why it would give rise to consternation. It's the equivalent of Die and I bringing guns to a knife fight.
