Why Did They Build Ancient Structures?

Updated: Mar 24

The hidden basis of both ancient and modern technology

Ancient structures puzzle modern day scientists of the western scientific mindset because their minds are being corralled into singular disciplinary approaches, quite often, requiring them to work together across various intellectual fields, rather than synthesizing such disciplines in their own person and from their own perspective. How did they build the pyramids? How did they build Stonehenge? How did they use the temple of the sun? Why did they build gobekli tepe? Why did they carve the Kailasa temple out of a single gargantuan piece of rock? These are the questions often asked by ethnocentric members of the western scientific mindset and all they have are incomplete speculations and guesses from limited states of awareness, without a semblance of comprehension nor authority.

What are the largest modern structures of our times and what are their uses? The cyclical nature of human experience can tell us a lot about our past, present and future, but this information never seems to make it to the nightly news. For today's purposes, we will examine some of largest undertakings of modern civil engineering.

Water and energy are the biggest civil engineering projects humans currently create for the processes required by modern life. The Hoover dam, for example, was designed with the help of one of the most notable modern scientists of our day, Nikola Tesla, who totally changed the way we think about power, energy, space, magnetism and vibration. The Hoover dam weighs an estimated 6.6 million tons, and, for comparison, the great pyramid of Giza weighs around 5.7 million tons. The Hoover dam provides electricity to three different states, spanning hundreds of miles, with the help of massive generators at its base that generate three million horsepower.

One of the most important similarities between the Giza pyramids and the Hoover dam are both their proximity to, and, how they operate in conjunction with, water! Much like the Hoover dam, the function of the Giza pyramids also depend on the proximity to water. Indeed, Nikola Tesla's famous
