Could Ancient Peruvians Melt Stone Blocks

Spanish artist can soften stone so why not ancient Peruvians using a plant.

If a Spanish artist in the modern world can sculpt a stone to look like this then why not the ancient Peruvians? The idea that a plant substance liquefying stone seems absurd but, the theory and science are growing. Please check out the links for more on this story of the plant substances on the website Above Top Secret. Archaeologists and other scientists have been scratching their heads trying to figure out how remarkable ancient Peruvian structures like Sacsayhuamán were constructed. These marvellous structures consist of gigantic stones that are so heavy that our modern machinery can hardly move and put them in place.

Part of a wall in Cuzco has 14 angles.

Does the key to the puzzle lie in a certain very specific plant that gave the ancient Peruvians the possibility to soften stone or is the answer to the mystery of access to advanced ancient technology that could melt stone?

Could the ancient people of Peru soften solid stone.

According to researchers Jan Peter de Jong, and Christopher Jordan Jesus Gamarra, the granite walls in Cuzco show evidence of being heated to a very high degree and vitrified- the outside surface becoming glassy and very smooth.

An artist in Spain can create pieces of art that look like he's softened the stone and created a stunning piece from it. They look mind-boggling. I was going to say mind-melting but I didn't.

Based on this observation, Jong, Jordan and Gamarra conclude that "some sort of high-tech device was used to melt stone blocks which were then placed and allowed to cool next to hard, jigsaw-polygonal blocks that were already in place.

This stone from Peru looks like it's been softened up and stood on.

The new stone would remain fixed against these stones in near-perfect precision but would be its separate block of granite that would then have more blocks fitted into place around it and "melted" into their interlocking positions in the wall.

In this theory, there would still be power saws and drills that would cut and shape the blocks as the walls were assembled," David Hatcher Childress wrote in his book Ancient Technology in Peru and Bolivia.

Researchers Jong and Jordan propose that several ancient civilizations worldwide were familiar with the high-tech melting of stone technology. They also say that "the stones on some of the ancient streets in Cuzco have been vitrified by some high temperature to give them their characteristic glassy texture.

Jordon, de Jong and Gamarra say that temperatures need to reach 1,100 degrees centigrade and that numerous archaeological sites around Cuzco, including Sacsayhuaman and Qenko, showed signs of vitrification."

There are also indications the ancient Peruvians had access to a plant whose juices softened rock so that it could be worked into tightly fitted masonry. In his book Exploration Fawcett, Colonel Fawcett told of how he had heard that the stones were fitted together using a liquid that softened stone to the consistency of clay. Colonel Fawcett told of how he had heard that the stones were fitted together using a liquid that softened stone to the consistency of clay.

Brian Fawcett, who edited his father's book, tells the following story in the footnotes: A friend of his who worked at a mining camp at 14,000 feet at Cerro di Pasco in Central Peru, discovered a jar in an Incan or pre-Incan grave.

He opened the jar, thinking it was chicha, an alcoholic drink, breaking the still intact ancient wax seal. Later, the jar was accidentally knocked over onto a rock.

Fawcett said "About ten minutes later I bent over the rock and casually examined the pool of spilled liquid. It was no longer liquid; the whole patch where it had been, and the rock under it, were as soft as wet cement! It was as though the stone had melted, like wax under the influence of heat.

Fawcett seemed to think that the plant might be found on the Pyrene River in the Chuncho country of Peru and described it as having dark reddish leaves and being about a foot high. Another story is about a biologist observing an unfamiliar bird in the Amazon. He watched it making a nest on a rock face by rubbing the rock with a twig.

The sap of the twig dissolved the rock, making a hollow in which the bird could make its nest." The idea that a plant's liquid could enable ancient Peruvians to construct astonishing constructions like Sacsayhuamán may seem far-fetched to some. However, since modern scientists have been unable to explain how megalithic structures in Peru and other parts of the world were built, we should not dismiss any ideas.

  1. The ancient world is full of mysteries to science community but common knowledge to the local community ,if we can only have an open mind and not undermine but put more resource to protect ths mavol

  2. The artists name is José Manuel Castro López

  3. If the liquid was in a jar, what was the jar made of?
