Were the pyramids built by telekinesis?

    Rafickposted 7 years ago

    As an architect I have read about how the Ancient Egyptians built the pyramids using complex techniques. ow a friend of mine is telling me that the pyramids were built by Dravidians who used the power of telekinesis.

    Do you believe him?

        You should see the stonework of the Tarahumara (Raramuri) in northwest Mexico.  They are the longest-lived indigenous people in North America, the least touched by European and African cultures.

        They cut stones so precisely, it looks like you can't get a sheet of paper between two of them.  I'm talking about people who are living and working today.

    Ramps have been found at the scene of pyramids, which explain the lower parts of the construction.

    All the shows I have seen about how all these ancient things were built use an architect for some reason, or engineers in some dissociated field.  If you ask people whose job it is to move big heavy awkward shaped things WE would explain just how easy it is to do it.  It is so easy in fact that I am even surprised that the question arises.

    This is a very silly question.  Archaeologists and historians know full well how the pyramids and other such mammoth structures were built, by engineering and logical planning, so I think you're just asking the question to be provocative.

    Of course it wasn't telekinesis, don't be daft.

          Well, to tell you the truth, my friend is also an architect like me, but he is speaking from a spiritual point of view. Apparently his guru told him about telekinesis and the pyramids. The guru also an enormous asteroid will collide with earth between 2012 and 2016 and my friend believes him.

          I don't.

          So, to reply to your question, it isn't a scientific reality, but for the people who believe in it, that doesn't matter, I suppose. As long as we have people who believe in certain things which we find illogical, unreasonable and unscientific, we can't avoid discussing about those things on the ground that they are either silly or unscientific.

        Judging from the number of posts, it doesn't seem the question was silly after all. When a mystery is solved and people still believe in such things as "pyramids were built with the power of telekinesis" its good to discuss about it. That was my original intention by posting an apparently naive question.

    We know it took many years to build a pyramid. If telekinesis were used, wouldn't it have gone a lot faster?

    As others have posted, we know how they used ramps, pulleys, sleds, oil (to lube ahead of the sleds), and there is a picture in one pyramid showing workers moving a huge stone. They built clay troughs atop each pyramid level and filled it with water to keep things level and true.

    Ancient people knew how to move heavy things with simple technology. They were hostages of primitive technology, but they were far from stupid.

    New archeological evidence shows that the Pyramids were actually just large prototypes for a series of similar, chocolate-like structures developed centuries later in Switzerland.

    Philisophically speaking, anything is possible. However, it is probable that there may have been another human civilization involved in creating such structures. Regarding telekinesis, one would need at least five or more people working with one block to raise them with your mind. One person alone would collapse from the strain. Even then, the strain would be, I would think, unbearable to raise it to such heights as the pyramids are.

    Another possibility is Atlantis. It may have been an advanced civilization that scattered across the globe when they destroyed themselves. Hence, to honor their forebears, they build pyramids - in Mexico, in Egypt, even the "mound builders of central United States - as they had on their island home. The technology iteslf was lost, but the memory of how things looked and a rudimentary understanding of how they were built survived.

    Just a thought....

    You mind is not material, you cannot possibly raise any material thing with it. To raise heavy stuff like stones you need a lever. System of levers and lots of cheap slaves can do the trick. You better ask how many of those poor slaves died in a process and how many years it took to build those damned piramids? People worked differently and they were not in a rush like nowadays. You simply cannot compare.

    In my best Vincent Price sounding voice: "Do not underestimate the power of the mind friends! It's clear, the Dravidians are masters in the use of psychokinetic power! They understood early on gravity was a push, and could manipulate the mass around objects effectively creating anti-gravity! But we know it as telekinesis or psychokinesis! I can only surmise, they learned it from a certain species of Dinosaurs that evolved and grew more advanced then us. Our mistake, was to believe they all went extinct! When in fact, they took to the stars to create new colonies and equally bad reality TV shows!"

    But in reality, I trust historians and scientists in their explanations on how this was possible. I just wanted an excuse to write an explanation to a silly claim.tongue
