Leedskalnin's work in progress was never caught on
film. There is one photograph
I've seen from the scene. A huge boulder is suspended from a flimsy
looking tripod. I don't see how the tripod could not fall apart with
the slightest swaying of the stone. It's almost like taunting us.

It would even seem quite likely, IMHO. He would
then be an inheritor of those Egyptians, rather
than a discoverer. I say that, because I think that much
and thought must have gone into developing such technology - much more
than what Leedskalnin's resources were. His mysteriousness deepens,
I think about it all. Even his name could be a sort of cryptic
- ward - Leed - skal - nin
Ed is almost
the same in pronounciation as ad - annoucement - 'news, or, ed - educational
So, what is the news?
pronunciation key to 'scale' uses the letters 'skal', where the
'a' is a special character : sk__l
skal in some Slavonian languages
means of (musical)
scales, of rocks
lead scale =
'sweet' 16 = Phi (1.6)
ward = guard, site
some Slavonian languages) =
stone, rock (adj.)
Or we can look at only the first and
last syllables in Leedskalnin:
Leed .. in
(sounds equivalent with 'lead in)
- nin = a scale of 'nin' ?
If we are to complete 'nin' into a word, 'nine' is about the
A scale of nine?
This has connections to the Golden Ratio, Osiris Numbers, the
regular 5-pointed star, and so on. I am not going to
expound on all the possible permutations of meaning
in this little play of words, anyone can do it for themselves.
But, Leedskalnin has "stone" in his name. Considering the above
interpretations, the very name of Edward Leedskalnin could hint at the
ancient secrets of the Egyptians (builders of the great pyramids) in
connection to the above subjects. Or, perhaps, it's just coincidence..

I thought that just by restating the idea in its
nakedness - its absurdity
would become transparent. I can imagine this idea, but then it doesn't

If you understood what intellectual level is inherent in the design of
the Nasca Monkey, you would realize that like in Egypt, there
were wardens of the same Ancient Science in Peru, and elsewhere.
Does archaeological record clash with feasibility of Ancient
It does. It indicates a much lower level of knowledge, and especially
available technology. To reconcile such apparent conflict, we must see
the Ancient Science as having a parallel existence, as being available
only to a tiny group of initiates.
What were the exact reasons for such a state of affairs? Well, that's
