CUZCO [9c]

Peru, home of the world’s longest mountain range, The Andes, the spine of South America. Here, in a high river valley, among peaks towering over 20,000 feet, the Inca established their capital city of Cuzco, which thrived for over 300 years…until Spanish conquistadors arrived in the 16th-century. Above Cuzco, at an elevation of more than 12,000 feet, looms the ancient fortress of Sacsahuamán, whose immense stone walls may hold secrets which predate the Inca themselves.

“My feeling, very strong feeling, is that we’re looking at a two-phase construction site in many of the so-called lnca stone monuments. And that the lnca structures sit on top of much more ancient rock-cut structures and megalithic structures that we just don’t know who built them. And this actually fits with the Incas’ own view.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

Like many lnca sites, Sacsahuamán features astonishing stonework But not all of it credited to the lnca. According to conventional archaeology, the Killke culture built the older sections of the site approximately 1,000 years ago. But the lnca themselves believed the site was constructed by an earlier unnamed race of people, led by a powerful God who descended from the skies.

“Throughout time there has been witness to a God named Viracocha that visited the South American people and blessed them and gave them all types of technology. And some of his physical characteristics make him stand out from the indigenous population, because he was a very tall, pale-skinned, white-haired being.”

But did this god Viracocha actually exist? Could he have been, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, a visitor from an alien world? If so, it might help to explain just how the ancient site was constructed.

“This rock weighs about 20 tons. This is miniscule compared to many of the rocks at today we have heavy machinery to move such stones. But in the ancient times, especially the lnca, they would have used massive human workforces working for massive amounts of time. A rule of thumb is it takes about ten to 20 men to move a one-ton rock. So, when you’re talking hundreds of tons, you’re talking thousands of men.”

“What we see is a culture who have got the technology to quarry giant blocks of stone move them to the site where they want to build and then to stack and cut and articulate these massive blocks into, in some cases, almost indestructible structure.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“You talk about granite, you’re talking about a composition of feldspar, mica and quartz. So, you’d need diamond to actually abrade it or cut it. We would use diamond today to cut granite. Those are the kind of discoveries that lead one to question whether they were really using the tools in the ancient toolbox, or whether there was something else at work.”

Shaman Jorge Delgado has spent most of his life studying the mysterious structures of Peru…Many built prior to the rise of the lnca Empire.

“It’s amazing all the weight of the stones. You know, it’s difficult, definitely, for any human to move, even in groups. And the other aspect is how it’s put together. In some stones, we will see, still now there is like some marks that it seems that it was dissolved.”

– Jorge Luis Delgado Mamani
(Co-Author, The Andean Awakening)

“The walls are put together with blocks of stone weighing 50 or 100 tons, cut and shaped like the pieces of a Jigsaw puzzle, so that they lock together so tightly that you can’t even get a sheet of paper between them.”

 – Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“There are signs in many of these stones that show very large amounts of thermal heat have been applied to mold the stones in such a way that they fit perfectly. And so it really does raise a lot of questions.”

– Jason Martell

(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“If you look at the style the Sacsahuamán wall was built, the blocks look as if they’ve been molded like putty. If you can mold stone into place, then all of a sudden, as crazy as this sounds, it makes more sense because there is no mortar that has been used.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

According to local legend, a bird was responsible for the seamless construction. Legends say the winged creature carried a powerful chemical in its beak a substance capable of melting stone.

“Sacsahuamán means “the head of the falcon,” falcon’s head. But maybe it was some falcons or maybe some Bird People who could connect with the place.”

– Jorge Luis Delgado Mamani
(Co-Author, The Andean Awakening)

But is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that the mythical bird might actually have been a spacecraft piloted by alien visitors known to the locals as Space Brothers?

“I believe that it’s a combination of the Space Brothers’ technology with other kind of possibilities. Nowadays we know, well, different kind of tools. We didn’t have before these kind of tools. Or maybe we had more sophisticated. So, the thing is that this place, Sacsahuamán, it continues as a mystery.”

– Jorge Luis Delgado Mamani
(Co-Author, The Andean Awakening)

“So looking at all these sites with these perfectly stacked stones, we’re looking at a type of technology that’s not used anywhere else on earth. I don’t discount human ingenuity, but that type of engineering that we still can’t duplicate today must raise a flag for further consideration. It’s almost extraterrestrial, in a sense. Someone had to have taught them these techniques.”

– Jason Martell

But whether the process of forming the large megalithic stones involve the use of thermal energy or a mysterious chemical, one thing is certain: The ancient builders used the technique on a vast scale. But why? What was the intended purpose of creating such intricately built stone structures?

“So we can’t really give an answer as to what they were being used for other than we know that the extraterrestrials more than likely are the source of what they call “gods.”  How did they get here? More than likely in some type of craft, and very possibly, they could have been using these large megaliths as platforms to land on.”

But if Sacsahuamán was in fact constructed by alien visitors, might there be additional evidence of their time on Earth at other ancient sites around the world? Perhaps there is. And the path to that evidence is clearly marked in stones.
