When things are investigated, knowledge is extended. When knowledge is extended, the will becomes sincere. When the will is sincere, the mind is correct. When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated. -- Confucius
Politically correct ideals are garbage: true wisdom comes from decades of deep thought and neutral observation. Only a so-called sociopath could ascertain wisdom from this crazy world in a neutral way. Cool thoughts- uncorrupted by modern politics, social norms, or societal ideals- are required for wisdom. Questioning everything, and going against the grain on all universally accepted norms is the path to true intelligence. The Gods notice this.

Lack of Thinking- Greatest Mystery of All

Mysteries titillate the masses. Virtually everything about the so-called paranormal, the ancient times, and modern day happenings involving rudimentary physics seems to be a mystery.

Unsolved, unsolvable, fascinating, astounding, fantastic; whatever.

Several of these mysteries are actually tied together and have one explanation. Allow me to burst the bubble of wonder regarding that. The pyramids, obelisks, stonehenge, Easter Island, coral castle, Tiahuanaco, and similar sites worldwide were all built by the same techniques.

First one must ponder why it is so hard for most to grasp how they were built. Indeed, it is true that many of the stones comprising these monuments weigh up to 30 tons apiece. And we all assume that people thousands of years ago did not have access to cranes, electricity, or any other equipment we would use now to construct similar structures. Therefore it was impossible. And, an ongoing stream of puffy talking head so-called scientists are constantly making appearances on documentaries in which they act completely befuddled by these marvels. They constantly claim they just cannot understand how they were built, and certainly could not build them now- even with modern equipment, math, and science. This so convinces the general public that they find themselves trying to figure out some other way it could have been done. After all, the structures are really there.

Enter the explainers. On one hand, there are pseudo-science self-appointed pearls of wisdom with their own degrees and titles. These buffoons pass down their unprovable and illogical crackpot theories and call themselves 'branches of science'. They include 'egyptologists', 'astronomers', 'theoretical physicists', and 'astrologers', to name a few. Their theories and even their alleged facts are consistently disproven as inherently illogical, unprovable, and at best  constitute inverse physics. Then on the other hand, are the anti-science aggrandizement seekers who offer explanations that tap into peoples' general distrust of 'modern' science. They say religious entities assisted in the construction, or aliens, or ancient giants- and a lot of people buy it. Since none of these subjects are provable they are also not unprovable really- just fodder for the imagination.

Never mind the obvious....all past theories of pseudo-scientists have been consistently proven to be impossible, aliens have better things to do than fly to other planets and construct giant rock decorations, and fabled giants are not physically possible as human anatomy cannot function beyond a certain size. Besides ignoring these inconvenient facts, why then do people buy into non-mysteries?

Arrogance. Since virtually all modern day humans assume that ancient humans were inherently stupid, then it never occurs to anyone that the ancients could have figured out how to build something big. This is why aliens must have helped, they steadfastly insist.

Fortunately for the open-minded, other sciences have also been shown to be consistently wrong. No one really knows how old anything is, or how long any species has been wandering this planet. It is all guesswork. So when a human skull was found embedded in between two coal layers once, it was consternating for geologists: This meant a human was in existence 280 million years ago! So are geologists wrong about how long it takes to form coal, or are anthropologists wrong about how long humans have existed? One of them sure is, or perhaps both. (Or of course, a hoax is afoot and everyone takes it at face value for their own amusement.)

How this all relates to pyramids et al, is that the proclaimers of wisdom about ancient structures are frequently disproven, which opens the door for more wild speculations. In the meantime, human arrogance and ignorance reign.

Just how stupid were our ancestors? Can you even come close to passing this 8th grade rural school exam from 1895? Schools teach less all the time and people depend more and more upon technology to think for them. If all of the IT professionals and engineers were to retire in mass and move to an island, civilization as we know it would collapse in short order. Our ancestors did a lot more thinking and problem solving than we ever will, and if a time machine were to bring some of them here, they would be the smartest gang of engineers ever seen. Take that premise back hundreds and then even thousands of years. They obviously did not have cranes, but there is some evidence they discovered electricity and knew how to harness it. Electricity or not, perhaps they used their advanced thinking intellect to solve real world problems that were important to them.

Instead, everyone assumes they were wandering around in animal skins, dragging clubs and grunting. More likely is a vision of them inventing simple but useful tools like compasses, astrolabes, sextons, rulers, and trigonometric equations. Little to no technology, steel, or factories are needed for these things- just a lot of human brainage, which was available to the ancients as well.

So how did they build these giant, heavy structures then? The Greeks, the supposed pre-geniuses of our era, routinely credited the Egyptians in their writings for their knowledge and math skills. So maybe the Egyptians used intellect. How absurd in the extreme that people today assume they enslaved hundreds of thousands of people to pull rocks on ropes up giant circular ramps. The equipment they used, as evidenced by actual physical artifacts found as well as hieroglyphs and drawings, included: boats, roads, ropes, water levels, sleds, rollers, pulleys and tripods, and; competing, named teams of specialty workers. Realistic calculations of human horsepower with ropes and pulleys estimate that only a thousand workers could have built one of the great pyramids in 25 years. So ten thousand could have done it in 2 1/2 years. If it is true there were 100,000 slaves, then that would mean 3 months...

Also noteworthy is that the main component of the Egyptian structures- limestone, and the main component of the Easter Island statues- porous volcanic rock, is easily cut and formed. It is also possible to pulverize limestone and reconstitute it with water, creating concrete. Concrete can be poured into forms- hence the seams that a piece of paper or razor will not fit in between- maybe they are not seams at all but lines scratched in like modern masons do to sidewalks and driveways. Poured or not, cutting and moving large stones is by no means impossible. Video below is about the doings of a common man with a logical mind. See his site linked below.



Another interesting achievement was in Florida: the coral castle construct. That man may have used Egyptian style stone moving techniques only, and placed magnets and wire coils around to throw people off of his secret construction techniques. He may also have used Tesla based methods to move the stones. If so, it is unlikely he actually floated them like balloons with a ley-line associated field as postulated in the video below. It is more likely he would have attached large magnets to the stones and to the ground, and then flipped them over. The opposing magnets would float them enough to maneuver them around. Either way, the place is impressive and proves that modern man can build big things too if he does a little thinking.



The greatest mystery seems to be why so many people prefer to be awestruck than to try and solve unknowns. Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
