Edward Leedskalnin's Name As A Clue

      Edward Leedskalnin of the Corral Castle fame.

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 experimentation and thought must have gone into developing such technology - much more than what Leedskalnin's resources were. His mysteriousness deepens, as I think about it all. Even his name could be a sort of cryptic clue. 

Ed - ward - Leed - skal - nin

Ed is almost the same in pronounciation as ad -  annoucement - 'news, or,  ed - educational
So, what is the news?

English dictionary's 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
   skala             =  scale, rock            
   lead scale      =  'sweet' 16 = Phi (1.6)
   ward             =  guard, site
   skalni (in 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)

     skal  -  nin  =   a scale of 'nin' ?
If we are to complete 'nin' into a word,  'nine' is about the closest.

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 work!

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 Science? 
It does. It indicates a much lower level of knowledge, and especially of 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 another question.
