Wally Wallington's movement of large stone blocks

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Description: Wally Wallington has demonstrated that he can lift a Stonehenge-sized pillar weighing 22,000 lbs and moved a barn over 300 ft. What makes this so special is that he does it using only himself, gravity, and his incredible ingenuity.Wally Wallington is a retired construction worker who claims to have found a way one person could construct Stonehenge using only materials and techniques that do not rely on any modern technology.
----

Wally Wallington is a retired construction worker from Lapeer County, Michigan who has revived forgotten technology and demonstrated a method for a person to construct a Stonehenge-like structure using only materials and techniques that do not rely on any modern technology. He has demonstrated this technique[1] on the Canadian science television program Daily Planet,[2][3] and is building a full-scale concrete replica of Stonehenge single-handedly.

His technique uses simple machines such as levers aided by counterweights and pivots. He has successfully singlehandedly "walked" a barn and multi-thousand pound concrete blocks using a beam lever and two pivots under the object and near the center of mass. These techniques might be comparable to those used by Edward Leedskalnin when he single-handedly constructed his massive Coral Castle in Florida.[4]

How the megalithic builders moved larges stone is an interesting question for sure.

In this video, we get a rare glimpse of Ed Leedskalnin himself demonstrating his technique of using pulleys, winches and wooden rollers to move the large stone blocks at Coral Castle.

What I want to know is, 'How were these giant blocks of stone quarried and carved?'.

It is like the Mystery of the Nazca Lines in the Peruvian Andes.

Most tend to ask, 'How were these lines drawn?'.

I want to know, 'How was the mountain top leveled?', and more importantly, 'Where did the missing mountain peak go?.

Solve that puzzle and I would say 'Now you're on to something'.

Cheers...

Armand,
Nice to meet you. I had no idea there are real quarrymen. Good (mostly) to see that levitating confusion be replaced with simple practicality. I like technology.
Your Nazca question is good. Big, but good. I doubt we could get many of us to agree to the answer to that. I'm partial to the 20 -12 Kyrbp solar civilization. I wonder what caused that end. Any guesses?

Hey Fellow Airman,
On the topic of Ancient civilizations, I am a firm believer in Antarctica being the Lost Continent of Atlantis...

atlantis_under_the_ice.jpg
Atlantis Under the Ice in Antarctica...

Plato spoke of the Island of Atlantis being 'Beyond the Pillars of Hercules' in the 'Middle of the Great Sea'. Now, compared to the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean is a pond, but if Antarctica is Atlantis, then that would place it smack in the center of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans - In the Middle of the Great Sea...

Atlantis in the Middle of the Great Sea...

What caused their end? I believe it was a Pole Shift...

I suspect the Atlanteans were experimenting with the Planetary (Energy) Grid (exactly why? I don't know) and that they somehow miscalculated and damaged, or altered it...

Causing their island home to become the new South Pole...

The Planetary (Energy) Grid

And that all the Ancient cultures we see around the world today are offshoots of that parent (lost) civilization...

Atlantis - The Antediluvian World

That is my guess...

Atlantis. According to the Thunderbolts team and other comparative mythologists, Atlantis was the realm of the celestial deities, i.e. planets, in close association with Earth. The ocean was originally a term for the sky, especially in the vicinity of Saturn, Venus and Mars, which were positioned on the Earth's axis, at the north polar region of the sky. Similarly, where the Bible talks about "the fountains of the great deep", it's referring to the sky, not the oceans on Earth or anything underground etc. See the Cardona Interview thread at https://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3824.

Concerning the Baalbek Monolith and the Trilithon.... this book gives some indications of how they were carved, moved, and setup (it is in French however):

Adam, Jean-Pierre (1977), "À propos du trilithon de Baalbek: Le transport et la mise en oeuvre des mégalithes", Syria

Heliopolis, the City of the Sun

See also: List of ancient architectural records, List of Roman monoliths and List of largest monoliths in the world
Great Stones, Baalbeck, 1891

After Alexander the Great conquered the Near East in 334 BC, the existing settlement was named Heliopolis (Ἡλιούπολις) from helios, Greek for sun, and polis, Greek for city. The city retained its religious function during Greco-Roman times, when the sanctuary of the Heliopolitan Jupiter-Baal was a pilgrimage site. Trajan's biographer records that the emperor consulted the oracle there. Trajan inquired of the Heliopolitan Jupiter whether he would return alive from his wars against the Parthians. In reply, the god presented him with a vine shoot cut into pieces. Macrobius, a Latin grammarian of the 5th century, mentioned Zeus Heliopolitanus and the temple, a place of oracular divination. Starting in the last quarter of the 1st century BC (reign of Augustus) and over a period of two centuries (reign of Philip the Arab), the Romans had built a temple complex in Baalbeck consisting of three temples: Jupiter, Bacchus and Venus. On a nearby hill, they built a fourth temple dedicated to Mercury.

The city, then known as Heliopolis (there was another Heliopolis in Egypt), was made a colonia by Septimius Severus in 193, having been part of the territory of Berytus on the Phoenician coast since 15 BC. Work on the religious complex there lasted over a century and a half and was never completed. The dedication of the present temple ruins, the largest religious building in the entire Roman empire, dates from the reign of Septimius Severus (193-211 AD), whose coins first show the two temples. In commemoration, no doubt, of the dedication of the new sanctuaries, Severus conferred the rights of the ius Italicum on the city.
Temple of Venus, Baalbeck, 1891

Today, only six Corinthian columns remain standing. Eight more were disassembled and shipped to Constantinople under Justinian's orders circa 532-537 CE, for his basilica of Hagia Sophia.

The greatest of the three temples was sacred to Jupiter Baal, ("Heliopolitan Zeus"), identified here with the sun, and was constructed during the first century AD (completed circa 60 AD).[5] With it were associated a temple to Venus and a lesser temple in honor of Bacchus (though it was traditionally referred to as the "Temple of the Sun" by Neoclassical visitors, who saw it as the best-preserved Roman temple in the world – it is surrounded by forty-two columns nearly 20 meters in height). Thus three Eastern deities were worshipped in Roman guise: thundering Jove, the god of storms, stood in for Baal-Hadad, Venus for ‘Ashtart and Bacchus for Anatolian Dionysus.

The original number of Jupiter columns was 54 columns. The architrave and frieze blocks weigh up to 60 tons each, and one corner block over 100 tons, all of them raised to a height of 19 m (62.34 ft) above the ground.[6] This was thought to have been done using Roman cranes. Roman cranes were not capable of lifting stones this heavy; however, by combining multiple cranes they may have been able to lift them to this height. If necessary they may have used the cranes to lever one side up a little at a time and use shims to hold it while they did the other side.

The Roman construction was built on top of earlier ruins and involved the creation of an immense raised plaza onto which the actual buildings were placed. The sloping terrain necessitated the creation of retaining walls on the north, south and west sides of the plaza. These walls are built of about 24 monoliths at their lowest level each weighing approximately 300 tons. The western, tallest retaining wall has a second course of monoliths containg the famous trilithon: a row of three stones, each over 19 metres long, 4.3 metres high and 3.6 metres broad, cut from limestone. They weigh approximately 800 tons each.[7]

A fourth, still larger stone called Stone of the Pregnant Woman lies unused in a nearby quarry about 1 mile from the town.[8] – its weight, often exaggerated, is estimated at 1,000 tons.[9] An even larger stone, weighing approximately 1,200 tons,[10] lies in the same quarry across the road. Another of the Roman ruins, the Great Court, has six 20 m (65.62 ft) tall stone columns surviving, out of an original 128 columns.

Jupiter-Baal was represented locally (on coinage) as a beardless god in long scaly drapery holding a whip in his right hand and thunderbolts and ears of wheat in his left. Two bulls supported him. In this guise he passed into European worship in the 3rd century and 4th century. The icon of Helipolitan Zeus (in A.B. Cook, Zeus, i:570–576) bore busts of the seven planetary powers on the front of the pillarlike term in which he was encased. A bronze statuette of this Heliopolitan Zeus was discovered at Tortosa, Spain; another was found at Byblos in Phoenicia. A comparable iconic image is the Lady of Ephesus.[11]
Ruins of a Baalbeck Temple, 1891

Other emperors enriched the sanctuary of Heliopolitan Jupiter each in turn. Nero (54–68 AD) built the tower-altar opposite the Temple of Jupiter; Trajan (98-117) added the forecourt to the Temple of Jupiter, with porticos of pink granite brought from Aswan in Egypt. Antoninus Pius (138-161) built the Temple of Bacchus, the best preserved of the sanctuary's structures, for it was protected by the rubble of the site's ruins. It is enriched with refined reliefs and sculpture. Septimius Severus (193-211) added a pentagonal temple of Venus, who as Aphrodite had enjoyed an early Syrian role with her consort Adonis ("Lord", the Aramaic translation of "Baal."). Emperor Philip the Arab (244–249) was the last to add a monument at Heliopolis: the hexagonal forecourt. When he was finished Heliopolis and Praeneste in Italy were the two largest sanctuaries in the Western world.

The extreme license of the Heliopolitan worship of Aphrodite was often commented upon by early Christian writers, who competed with one another to execrate her worship. Eusebius of Caesarea, down the coast, averred that 'men and women vie with one another to honour their shameless goddess; husbands and fathers let their wives and daughters publicly prostitute themselves to please Astarte'. Constantine, making an effort to curb the Venus cult, built a basilica in Heliopolis. Theodosius I erected another, with a western apse, occupying the main court of the Jupiter temple, as was Christian practice everywhere. The vast stone blocks of its walls were taken from the temple. Today nothing of the Theodosian basilica remains.

------

Moving the stones

The quarry was slightly higher up[18][19] than the temple itself so no lifting was required to move the stones the 800 meters (2,600 ft) to the temple. In 1977, Jean-Pierre Adam made a brief study suggesting the large blocks could have been moved on rollers with machines using capstans and pulley blocks, a process which he theorised could use 512 workers to move a 557 tonne block (approximately 243 tonnes lighter than the trilithon blocks).[18][20] Archaeologists date the temple to the Julio-Claudian period, the first two centuries AD.[21]

Mr Wallingtons movements are indeed very ingenious.
But instead consider that there is no such force called gravity.
it doesn't exist , except as a consequence of implosion over emmitance relative to each created spheroid.
By countering this locally , as trees do, then the water simply falls to their outer field.
No-thing weighs anything in space.

Just wanted to point out that Romans brought the Pink Granite from Aswan, Egypt to Baalbek:

Other emperors enriched the sanctuary of Heliopolitan Jupiter each in turn. Nero (54–68 AD) built the tower-altar opposite the Temple of Jupiter; Trajan (98-117) added the forecourt to the Temple of Jupiter, with porticos of pink granite brought from Aswan in Egypt.
