Machu Picchu

Perhaps the most spectacular ruin in the Americas, Machu Picchu is an ancient Incan fortress city in Peru. Once the retreat of an Incan ruler, the terraced city is perched upon a narrow saddle between two sharp peaks high in the Andes Mountains and sprawls across 5 square miles (13 sq km). Rediscovered in 1911, it is one of the largest and most intact pre-Columbian sites yet found and contains rare examples of religious monuments. What does "Machu Picchu" mean in the Quechua language?

The Inca were amazing: their stonework had no mortar, yet was shaped to perfectly interlock to withstand earthquakes; they had no written language but an extensive knot-tying 'language' to keep accounts &c; extensive walking tracks & messengers could transmit messages throughout the whole Inca empire in the same time it takes modern postal services; those crazy rope bridges - wow! Amazing people.

The link for the new seven wonders of the world within the article doesn't work. Copy 'New Seven Wonders of the World' into the search box. Great article.

We are lucky that this Inca site remained intact over the centuries. Unlike what we see in Cuzco or Tenochtitlan / Mexico city.

......In the words of Kipling's “Explorer”:


“… a voice, as bad as Conscience, rang interminable changes
On one everlasting Whisper day and night repeated—so:
‘Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Ranges—
Something lost behind the Ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!’ ”


From the extraordinary book "Inca Land Explorations in the Highlands of Peru"
By Hiram Bingham - Director of the Peruvian Expeditions of Yale University and the National Geographic Society....

Machu Picchu: In Quechua, "machu" = old, old person / picchu = peak; mountain or prominence with a broad base which ends in sharp peaks, "old peak".

I wish I was there right now. It looks like a place where I could just forget all my sorrows and troubles of this life and come closer to the Almighty.

Think Another human herd "cave" (see Plato) in honor of the "royal blood" where they sacrificed humans. Human herd still calls it "civilization" .... rather non-civilization in the midst of the true magnificent glory of nature!

One cave went down! The modern "cave" dwellers (see Plato) have unearthed it for their own "cave" dwellers to see nowadays, and learn the same human herd corruption and mass murder. Human herd has not learned anything from Plato!!!
Human herd are terribly slow learners!

I didn't notice a landing sight for extra terrestrials, they might not be as advanced as we first suspected.
