I have already had an interest in why certain types of stone/materials were used for building certain types of structures.

Quote:And, according to an article in the October 2008 issue of Smithsonian magazine, some archaeologists think the megaliths at the monument, particularly the so-called bluestones, could have been used for healing purposes. At any rate, it’s truly astonishing to realize that Neolithic people (perhaps the Druids) had the technical skills for moving megaliths weighing as much as 50 tons from as far away as the Preseli Mountains in Wales, some 250 miles from Stonehenge! One thing about Stonehenge remains certain - it will continue to amaze for years to come.

Quote:Now, a study published this month in the Journal of Archaeological Science sheds new light on the long-running argument. According to analysis of the Stonehenge bluestones by a team of scientists from Aberystwyth University, University College London and National Museum of Wales, the stones did not come from the Carn Meini outcrop as Thomas concluded. Instead, by using laser mass spectrometry techniques to analyze both the chemical composition of the rock and the microbiology present when it was formed, they traced at least 55 percent of the spotted dolerite bluestones used at Stonehenge to Carn Goedog, a different outcrop several kilometers away.

Quote:Although they concede Stonehenge was probably "multifunctional", possibly also serving as a giant calendar marking the solstices, as well as a site of ancestor worship, they are convinced its true importance came from the modest bluestones, the size of a man or smaller, dwarfed by the awesome sarsens.

Two of the original bluestones were broken, many chipped into fragments, and some survive only as stumps underground after being broken up to serve as healing talismans.

Quote:According to this competing school of thought, an Ice Age glacier carried the bluestones to the Wiltshire region some 20,000 years ago, and they were already available locally when Neolithic man began building Stonehenge.

Me too...just one of my many interests in this go 'round. @ 16.22 into video shows (perhaps) how the builders oriented it directionally (to reach the heavens/ Sin (the moon god)


#7 Ziggurat of Ur - architecture



"Sin

Sin was the Sumerian Moon god. Sumerians were living more than three thousand years ago in Mesopotamia. Today Mesopotamia is located in the territories of the states of Iraq and Kuwait.

Sin was worshipped in the city of Ur. The high priest of his temple, chosen from the royal family, was viewed as Sin's spouse. Sin was the descendant of the sky god An. His parents were the air god Enlil and the grain goddess Ninlil. Sin was depicted as a "fierce young bull, thick of horns, perfect of limbs, with a beautiful bird of blue".

The Moon god had several different names that referred to different phases of the Moon. The name Sin indicated the crescent Moon, Nanna the full Moon, and Asimbabbar the beginning of each lunar cycle.

Enlil was banished by the assembly of the gods to live in the underworld. When Ninlil realized she was pregnant, she decided to follow Enlil to the world of the dead to let him witness the birth of his child. They gave their next three children to the gods so that Sin could ascend to the heavens to light the night sky."

also -

"The Moon God And The Mount Sinai Connection

In our article Is Biblical Mount Sinai Located In Har Karkom Where Mesopotamian Moon God Sin Was Worshipped? the question was raised whether Nanna may have been more important than previously thought.

Biblical archaeologist Emmanuel Anati has discovered evidence suggesting that Biblical Mount Sinai was on a site known as Har Karkom in the Negev of Israel. According to Anati, people who lived in Har Karkom during the Early Bronze Age worshipped the Moon God Sin. Many temples were raised in his honor.

The cult of Moon God Nanna spread to many places and people built temples built in his honor in all the large cities of Babylonia and Assyria."

I'll check out the vid in a few, I don't quite know how Puma Punku didn't make it on that list.

https://www.google.com/search?q=puma+pun...66&bih=600

From my perspective, this is one of the most inexplicable places on earth.
I hope Rog' chimes in on this. He noticed something about Puma Punku he mentioned a long tome ago in another thread but never said exactly what.
I've been looking at this place for some time, it's enigmatic, and that is an understatement.

Yeah, unusual to say the least...maybe the builders were high on ayahuaska.

Not sayin' I've had experience with such.
Not sayin' I haven't... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harmine
You may want to devote a little time to understanding Syrian rue.
It's not called telepathine for shits and giggles.

Just a thought, Sound waves & Absolute Zero, to move objects.

So these molecules would no longer run around like billiard balls, but move as quantum mechanical matter waves.

Something that makes ya go Hummm.

I don't think that is true, I think it is more a matter of not having cheap labour and perhaps not the desire to use those materials.
