Beyond Machu Picchu
by Gary Schoenung
Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Inca’s is only one example of a place that is well known today because it was found and reused by the people that we credit with building it. Many of the “unexplainable” constructions from our early recorded history have that in common. That is why is is not unusual to find that work that was obviously done at a later time was of less quality and easier to manage then what had been done before, or in some cases apparently altered from what had remained. Here are some examples of places similar to Machu Picchu that are not well known because they had not been rediscovered and used.
The reason that we can’t understand how ancient people with no technology, machinery or even decent tools could have accomplished what they seem to have been able to do is very simple. They didn’t do it. They occupied and used what was available to them from before a near extinction event occurred. Some of what they were able to use had become exposed by time and erosion. I think that long before that time the world population had grown way beyond what we currently think it is possible for our planet to support.
