I love these old examples of much earlier and now forgotten empires. The planet is littered with weird, unexplainable artifacts like this! Official Culture lives in a constant state of cognitive dissonance in order to both be aware of these impossible rock piles and also continue in its pursuit of standard assumptions about reality. Conventional teachings of history, (and by extension, social and material sciences) and on-the-ground evidence simply don't fit together. It requires practiced ignorance/insanity to keep going ahead.A stone cut into half probably with a laser.
I also went back to secret history, but for me it was more focusing on the Who Wrote the Bible and Why chapter, which I had powered through the first time around, without enough context to understand properly. After attemptingI'm 're reading secret history, the section on stones I had mostly forgotten about. Amazing stuff.
Man that's awesome! It's been on my bucket list for a while. Did you get to see those bored-out holes that seemed to have been drilled or something? Brian Foerster talks about them on youtube and has books out about his theories.I went into the Great Pyramid at Giza as a tourist, the stonework in the pyramid and there at Giza, and the stories we were being told, just left me with absolute sense that we were completely clueless as to how these things were done. It's clear to me that there is so much we have forgotten.
