Was that built at 7000ft?
Did some stones weigh 55 tons?
Is that earthquake proof?
Is that granite?
Lets see them work with stones like this:You want granite? The entire city of Aberdeen in Scotland is built of granite including the houses.
And amazingly the stones fit together even better than those in your pic. I can't vouch for earthquakes and have no clue how much some stones weight but here are far more of them than in your little village. And they were built in very inclement weather.
Those shapes have a purpose and is what makes them earthquake proof. No need for mortar either. Lets see what your pics look like after 10000 years.They did. They were clever enough to break them into manageable sizes and make them square or whatever specific shape was needed to build an arch or round construction. Any arches in your pics? Or round construction?
I'm not an engineer, but I learned it's to do with the complex interlocking design. It allows for a bit of movement in each direction before resettling. We had a class in uni that said that dolosse were designed in a similar way.
Lost knowledge?Oh dear. You'll need to explain what a ley line is. We're heading into tin foil hat territory now.
