Quite interesting to say the least.

Amazing what can be done with basic knowladge of physics. Kids... Stay in school.

We're forced to :p
Anyway it is quite interesting :D

Very interesting. Did he give a possible explanation for how the cross-piece could be placed on top of the standing blocks? That's the only thing I can't figure out how to do based upon his techniques.

and... who taught those ancient civilizations laws of physics? I'm guessing it was aliens. lol

Well its quite possible to use the pseudo level technique shown from 2:33 of the movie clip and onwards. If a slab of rock can be lifted 3 feet off the ground with just plank of woods, imagine what you can do with huge logs.

But that's just speculation on my part Lol!

Right, but I was wondering if it was feasible to use that technique for such a height. I'm having trouble seeing how they could lift the logs and insert them into the frame when it's that high off the ground.

A good question and unfortunately I am going to have to do a bit of research on that or try making a stone henge of my own in my back yard without pullies or levers to answer that question for you :p.

I was mainly wondering if the answer was obvious and I missed it. Seeing that the video didn't explain that after all, that's good enough for me. You don't have to go and drop a giant concrete block on yourself trying to find out :vlol:

This is cool Catapharact.
I've always thought that there was also some strange telekinesis powers(:p) in some ancient civilizations (Peru, Egypt,...) :confused:

It has always drawn my attention stones that fit perfectly

It's very impressive, but how did he manage to place the first wooden planks underneath that stone in the first place, without lifting it? :confused:

Yes, the inca were amazing. As a stonemason myself – I've always considered the Inca the gold standard. When the Europeans (spanish) first saw their work they thought it was magic – that they could somehow melt stone.

That is an interesting theory that man has. It seems probable. Thanks for sharing.

And Tampi, that all looks impressive too. Where is it?

because of this similar piece of Art in Armenia around 7500 years ago

http://www.carahunge.com/

its called Carahunge which is similar to Stonehenge. except Carahunge is older than stonehenge.

http://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/news/journalnewsindex/4112126.Armenian_links_to_Stonehenge_explored/

i urge the british to read this especially this Part

the earliest population of Britain, who came from Armenia, brought the ideas of Carahunge to Europe with them and played some part in the creation of Stonehenge and other European sites.

yes the british came from my kin:D and this is good indeed

so what cat posted is a bit out of question

this information is why Stonehenge was built.

I've got that video saved on my computer. Very informative on how to move big/heavy stuff alone. :tmb:

As opposed to just suggesting a theory of how Stonehenge was built.

Or perhaps... There are programs that let you save stuff like youtube videos.

Sorry. Just replying "?x11" doesn't give me much to work with. :p

Variation:
If I had enough time (and some people to help), I'd stand those vertical blocks using described technics, then bury them, then place horisontal blocks using that man technics of moving heavy load lifting it just a tiny bit. Then obviously I'd remove extra soil around the structure to reveal as much as necessary.
Time consuming I know, but involves 11 feet lifting of 25 tons blocks not ;)

is it just me or no one is willing to look and reply at this:mad::mad::mad:

but because i didnt looka t the vid and saw what people wrote if thats the case:mad::mad::mad::mad:

Finally an explanation that has nothing to do with outer-space crap. I'm just plain sick of how some ignorant and lazy offsprings of modernity excuse their lack of conception on how ancient mankind could build such impressive structures, while underrating them for prescinding of our precious technology.

You're doing it wrong.
