Hello everybody and welcome to ancient architects in one of my previous videos I discussed a theory put forward by Professor Ivan Watkins the states at the ancient people of the world were able to cut stone by harnessing the power of the Sun many including myself do not believe that simple tools were enough to create some of the truly.
Wondrous ancient stone monuments seen on just about every continent of the world from Machu Picchu in South America.
To the Giza Plateau in Egypt there is a body of thought that strongly believes that ancient aliens are responsible but I’ve never seen any credible evidence to believe such a theory of course you can interpret ancient writings images and structures in a number of different ways but I believe there was.
Once a far more advanced civilization that collapsed at.
The end of the last ice age the remnants of which became scattered around the world one thing is for sure certain ancient monuments do show advanced methods of stonework but I believe that it wasn’t due to the use of electricity and power tools but a more efficient technology that harnessed natural forces such as the Sun wind water or sound the technology has not been recorded in.
History but if natural forces were.
Harnessed there wouldn’t be much evidence recorded in the archaeological record apart from the product of that technology which is what we see in.
The form of perfectly drilled Granite’s intricate diorite vases and perfectly fit in irregular stone walls you can’t just drill or shape stone in the way you can wood or metal especially hard stones like granite or diorite as they are made from extremely hard interlocking minerals that wear down tools before any real progress can even be made the ancient stone and metal.
Tools that we are told were used would have very little impact on hard igneous rocks so archeology is certainly missing something in the.
Modern age it takes diamond tip tools and lots of cooling fluid to achieve the feats of stonemasonry that we see in a distant past and even now.
It is a relatively slow and difficult process which brings us to another theory for how.
They achieved it by harnessing the power of sound tuning forks vibrations sonic drilling and acoustic levitation are always that sound can be utilized.
For technological gain and are all scientifically feasible using not.
Just modern but ancient methods and materials so how does sonic drilling work well in simple terms when sound vibrations of.
A specific frequency are sent through a drill bit or even through something as simple as a metal pipe it can vibrate in such a way to acts like a very high frequency jackhammer the drill barely needs to turn as the vibrational impacts and shattering do the job compared to conventional drilling.
The method is actually faster buts less wear on the tool bits and takes less energy.
Conceivably you can even turn the handle of a large tuning fork into a cutting rod whether a drill tube or a drill bits even a copper tube could conceivably cut into Granite’s using this method.
To turn a tuning fork into a sonic drill the resonant frequency of the cutting rod must match the frequency of the fork that is attached to it scientifically the way it works is the Traverse vibrations from the fork prongs known as tines move the bottom of the u-shape up and down which sends long eternal vibrations through the cutting rod at the rods resonant frequency these.
Vibrations create standing waves with maximum vibration at the beginning and the end of the rod and there is a point of no vibration.
In the middle where a handle could be attached for example tines 30.
Centimeters long and 3 centimeters thick make a resonant frequency of 1,100 Hertz I would require a 1.
Rod to allow cutting as pictured here notice how long the rod is relative to the fork and how it actually looks like a trident or poun it can even function as search if the times were sharpened in Egyptian mythology the falcon god Horus is associated with harpoons but may be the.
Clearest evidence for sonic drilling has been staring us in the face for millennia one common symbol or object that is seen so often in ancient Egyptian art is the scepter it appears in relics art and hieroglyphs associated with the ancient Egyptian religion known as the war scepter.
It is a long straight staff.
Seen to be a stylized and in Moorhead but maybe this is actually a cutting implement the scepter was a symbol of power and Dominion and although it has a number of other mythological and symbolic associations maybe the true.
Meaning got lost through the dynastic history of ancient Egypt what became a symbol of power maybe once was literally an object of power but mainstream historians and archaeologists attest the traditional stone and metal tools were used to create stone blocks and ornaments.
And this is all because of depictions of the art of stone working in wall reliefs.
From the fifth dynasty all the way up to the 26th dynasty but for a start when you analyze drilled Granite’s it is clear that these.
Methods certainly did not create the bore holes when you look at the holes that do not go all the way through the Granite’s the circumference of the circular hole has a deeper groove implying it was created with a.
Metal pipe and it wouldn’t be possible to cut into granite simply using a metal pipe sand and manual labour as we are led to believe what’s the problem here there’s nothing you know without a steady stream of water you’re not getting new.
Material in there through the cutting action you’re not getting rid of the old powder which is just interfering with the drill going down but you can cut granite efficiently and quickly with a metal pipe if you use sonic drilling methods.
In ancient Egyptian images we do see the use of simple hand tools to make stone vases and bowls but such a method even in conjunction with sand wouldn’t be able to efficiently grind stone such as granite or diorite and create the striations or tool marks that we see inside drilled Egyptian.
Artifacts furthermore the most amazing and most difficult stonework created from the hardest stones are usually Old Kingdom predating the fifth.
Dynasty and many were actually pre-dynastic there is no doubt that the stonework from the fifth dynasty onwards could have been created from the simple stone tools shown as the rock used to make such artifacts was usually softer such.
As alabaster sandstone and limestone the oldest.
Depiction of a rock drill is a hieroglyph known as u 24 in.
Gardeners 1957 guide this is first seen in a third dynasty tomb as Sakura may be the hieroglyph is actually depicting a tuning fork tool and not a depiction of.
A traditional hand crank rock drill as we are told.
Some researchers believe they have found ancient Egyptian carvings of two tuning forks attached by wires on a statue of Isis and Anubis shown here this is one way you could get them to resonate to a specific frequency for a prolonged amount of time to cut stone without hitting them with a hammer interestingly on the website Keeley Netcom there is an email that was sent to the website that stated do you know about the tuning forks which were discovered by Egyptologists who presumably because.
They were unable to ascribe a utility to these items deemed them to be anomalous some years ago an American friend picked the lock of a door leading to an Egyptian Museum storeroom inside she found.
Hundreds of what she described as tuning forks these ranged in size are approximately 8 inches to approximately 8 or 9 feet overall and resemble wood cut apples but.
With a taut wire stretched between the tines of the fork she insists incidentally that these were definitely non-ferrous but steel these objects resembled a letter U with a handle a bit like a pitchfork and when the wire was plucked they vibrated for a prolonged period it.
Occurs to me to wonder if these devices might have had hardened tool bits attached to the bottom of the handles and if they might.
Have been used for cutting or engraving stone once they had been set vibrating of course I have no way of verifying this email that was actually sent in 1997 but it.
Is certainly interesting in that it confirms the carving on the statue of Isis and Anubis of two tuning forks connected by wires there is also this image from a Sumerian cylinder seal showing a musical scene and a musician is clearly seen holding a tuning fork the technology I’m sure.
Is ancient and not an 18th century invention as we.
Are led to believe whatever the truth independent researchers have proved that you can bore holes through solid rock with copper tubing using sonic drilling methods and with new research into ancient megalithic sites across the world we are finding out that acoustics were widely understood by the ancients and was certainly taken into account when building stone structures this relatively new line.
Of archeological research is known as archeo acoustics and is observed at sites such as Stonehenge in England Adam’s calendar in South Africa and gobekli tepe in Turkey not to mention the Great Pyramid of Egypt they all share.
Unquestionable acoustic properties that could well have amplified sound waves to vibrate fork tools at a constant pitch and allow the seemingly advanced method of stone cutting that has eluded historical researchers for soul thank you for watching this episode of ancient architects please.
