I HAVE JUST

finished

watching a u-toobe video on a topic that fascinates me as much today as when my button was first pushed many years ago.pffffft

YOU KNOW, OF COURSE

that I’m a nutter.

Loopy, barking, one cog short of a clock etc etc. True, and I’ve learned to live with it.

But it’s no explanation. I still hold an endless fascination for the wotifs—and have no intention of giving up until I get some decent and definitive answers.

So if you want to know what it is that’s held this old dog’s rapt attention for the last hour or two, you can visit this webbie—

—but be advised, don’t just sit there munching popcorn. Keep asking “Why?” and even better, “How?”

Then visit this one—

—which involves a wee bit of reading. Again with that questing(?) mind.

If you can casually flip off the notion that guys two thousand years ago could casually lug largish rocks over a few yards/metre distances* (the buggers could, too) then perhaps you can explain what the hell they intended doing with this wee thing once they’d finished carving it—

—because with the best will in the world I damn’ well couldn’t shift it. I believe it weighs around a thousand tons. But cheer up, fairly recently another was discovered close by that tips the scales at about two thousand … (I simply put ’em in my WTF bucket and walk away whistling)**.

Not my problem, I leave such for better educated minds than mine …

But it still annoys me:  how?

  1. What do you reckon to the theory that things like the Pyramids were built in-situ using an early form of cement, as proposed by a French chemical(?) I think … engineer a few years back?

    Like

    1. I think the guy’s name was Davidovitz or something like that. An interesting theory—some years ago I read that the ancient Romans had a cement that beat ours by miles, and could be used underwater. Interesting, but effectively unknown—surely if true, ‘we’; would be right in there analysing and replicating left, right, and centre?

      Since they first dug out the body of The Sphinx I had always been troubled by the photos of it but lacked the knowledge to figure out why. But in some of the u-toobes I watch, the Dvds, the books, the webbies and everything it all comes together. I could (and dammit, should) write a book on it but I’d never find a publisher (my ‘style’ is too abrasive. Bugger, how else can you wake up an ambulent zombie other than a well applied pin?)

      And, Ark—you too should be careful about what you seem to be reading. It’s addictive. If you get hooked you’ll throw the ‘God’ issues out of the window (“Let the dead bury their dead”) (no?) and devote the rest of your years to becoming obsessed.
      Interestingly, nobody has yet answered simple questions like “What were they going to do with them rocks?” and “How did they move 200, 400, 800 tons blocks for miles and hoist ’em up? Lots of them …” two thousand and more years ago?

      I like that ‘in situ casting’ theory and should really revisit it. I had the books here too, but tossed ’em out to make room for fresh ones …

      And now of course, with absolutely no (r) NO fanfare, Gobekli Tepe has rewritten opinions … but ‘they’ knew all along, of course.

      Of course …
