11) Megalithic Constructions
We consider megalithic constructions
particularly the ones made of hewn stones such as those of Egypt and Peru
to be the very "signature" of the Atlanteans. The reason is easy to see.
In order to work hard stones such as granite and basalt, nothing short
of steel or, at the very minimum, bronze, will ever do. Stone even as hard as dolerite and granite soon chip and crack, becoming unusable.
Archaeologists generally claim that the Egyptians
and the Peruvian Indians who built the colossal structures we can observe
even today in England (Stonehenge), in Giza (the Great Pyramid) and in Peru and Bolivia
(Tiahuanaco) did it with tools fashioned from copper or from stones such
as dolerite. This fact shows that they actually never attempted to do it in reality or even to theoretically demonstrate how this can be done in practice. The reason for that is simple to see, as the feat is completely impossible in actuality.
The true secret of megalithic construction
is the possession of steel and
bronze tools and of the metallurgical techniques to produce them. This technology existed in the Far East several millennia before the
recognized date of their introduction in the West. It is clear that this technique came from elsewhere, and was indeed practiced by foreigners
or invaders that kept such secrets for themselves.
Such was precisely the case in both Egypt and Peru, the two greatest early exponents of megalithic technology outside the Far East. Incan and Egyptian traditions both tell
how personages associated with the construction of megaliths and
pyramids came from the distant Orient, bringing along their steel weapons.
These they later smithed into the tools they used in order to erect their
magnificent megalithic constructions. In Egypt, a steel tool was found
inside the Great Pyramid by Cel. Vyse, who swore in writing that it could
in no case be intrusive and, hence, of later date. But the Great Pyramid was built in 2,600
BC, almost 2 millennia before iron was officially introduced in Egypt.
Furthermore, the builders (Free-Masons?) to whom such megalithic constructions
are ascribed personages such as Khufu, Imhotep and Thoth are unanimously
said to have come from the Orient, from the site of Paradise (Punt). Punt (Indonesia)is precisely the site of the Paradise we believe to be the same as Atlantis.
The same thing also happened in Peru. There the
Incas attributed the construction of Tiahuanaco's magnificent pyramids and precision
megalithic structures to the Chimus (or Chams), whom they described as
white, blond, blue-eyed giants. This is the standard phenotype of the
Atlanteans everywhere. These Indians also claim that, when these invaders
came from beyond the Ocean (Pacific), they brought along the iron and the
bronze with which they fashioned their tools and weapons. Even the name
the Peruvians used for steel (quillay) is of Dravidian derivation, and clearly
came from the Far Orient.
When we turn to places such as Greece
(legends on the construction of Troy); to England (Stonehenge), France
(Carnac) and the Far East itself (Angkor, Java, South India) we always
find the legends claiming that these monuments were built by blond giants and dark dwarfs working jointly and using magical means in order to erect their megaliths.
Are these, perhaps, reflections of Atlantis and its two races of giants (Nagas) and dwarfs (Kinnaras, or what? How else can we reasonably explain otherwise the mystery
of the construction of the spectacular monuments such as the Great
Pyramid, Zozer's pyramidal complex, the megaliths of Tiahuanaco or even the rougher
constructions of France (Carnac) and England (Stonehenge)? These were all constructed of gigantic hard-stones shaped to exacting tolerances by means of a technique that we are barely able to reproduce today.
