@barberwinning yeah except all of that has been taken apart. The stone is original with veins in it and melted granite turns into igneous compound unrecognizable from granite and would require enormous temperatures. Your theory is bogus.

I work in stonemasonry, programming & operating machines that cut all types of stone. Black Granite & quartzite being the most difficult to cut. But cutting isn’t the issue. Even with expensive diamond tipped saws or a water jet at 60,000 psi , cutting the stone is relatively achievable (obviously technically advanced in terms of tooling) with the tools we use. The issue we have is moving and placing them in position without pieces blowing out when a corner barely touches something. If we pick a piece of granite Bench-top up at either end it can easily just break in two. Although tough to cut it’s incredibly fragile, as veins running through it are far less dense, and easily crumble apart. Bits that fall to the ground are literally collected and glued back into place, as to retain as natural look. All stone edges have a bevel or little rounded edge for structural integrity on the edges. Corners and edges can chip so easily. If you had a 15 tonne block of granite with polished faces and square edges/corners I literally cannot fathom how gentle you’d have to be to manoeuvre it into position without bits just breaking off when bumped even slightly… for all these square corners to be perfectly intact indicates to me very advanced stonemasonry to say the least. & then consider moving them?!! People don’t realise what this weight entails when using such a hard yet fragile material

@Escape Velocity Actually... you CAN pour granite. It CAN be a geopolymer. Just, don't use heat or you'll destroy the crystals. Because of the low reactivity of granite, or granite waste, an aluminosilicate material in its natural state, it can be activated through alkali fusion with different amounts of sodium hydroxide. You can then create a geopolymer at ROOM TEMPERATURE using sodium silicate as an activator. You should easily be able to find this information by doing a simple search on the internet.

@somerandomchannel they still could of had slaves (and they did) but that doesn't mean they were responsible for building the pyramids. It took skilled labor which a common slave probably didn't have. Slaves were probably used for more basic labor task.

I have wondered this for years. I am a materials engineer and I just never got how Granite was chi sled to fit so tightly. Aliens?? Probably not. Advanced, very clever processing methods? Absolutely. I suspect the pyramids ate much older than we give credit. I think the technology was lost due to wars or natural disasters. Later generations came in and made the most of what was there. Adding in art work and columns, etc. It is odd to not find any large saws. I could imagine using diamond dust and water to assist in the machining and sawing of these blocks.

Having been involved in construction most of my life, I am of the opinion that the fit was first cut very accurately and placed. The final cut to fit was made by rubbing the stones, and I do not know just how the movement was done, but friction rubbing the stones was used to form the final joint. Friction force for the horizontal seams was gravity. Friction force for the vertical joints was another issue but not impossible. Shaped stones were ground off using friction. The concern would be to learn how the friction was generated.

great engaging video. I would love to see xray or other penetration imaging of a structure. When I look at many of these photos my theory is we're seeing a 'facing' or trowelled mortar surface. The 'cuts' being expansion joints similar to what we do in concrete today . This leaves some major questions because there's no evidence of 'rebar' for lack of a better term. BUT... it's just possible the major block is 'cast' within a form, coated with slurry without aggregate, trowelled and expansion joints (appearing like seams) cut in after. Just my opinion as a concrete contractor where we strategically 'cut in' joints after the fact. Fun is speculating how this all got done. Bronze is WAY too soft and they were a long way away from Milwaukee Diamond tipped blades spinning in a cut-off saw cooled with water.

Of course they gave out. What you're looking at are the ruins of the pyramids. See all that stepping? That's stones being exposed that aren't supposed to be exposed. When BI showed the bent pyramid, did you see some of the whiter stone on the outside? That's the remnants of the original cladding. The cladding was smoothed and shined stones that likely would have made the pyramids SHINE in the light of day. They would have been literal lighthouses in the desert.

IIRC, one or more pyramids had their facing blocks fall off due to insufficient foundation at the edges-- aka earthquakes literally caused them to slide off into rubble piles around the pyramids.

I've worked in construction even diamond drilling and sawing for 15 years and even with today's technology it's extremely difficult to obtain that level of precision and they seem to be able to do it with ease on a massive scale it's unbelievable to me. Thanks for all the likes and comments first of all. My observation of disbelief has come from my experience of working in concrete cutting, working with big blocks of reinforced concrete with 40mm steel rebar. No where has any historian or scientist explained how they could cut rose granite with such precision thousands of years ago the most amazing examples of this to me are the stone boxes of the Serapeum of Saqqara let alone how they got the boxes into place. Also to the comments suggesting these blocks where cast or poured that technology does not exist in terms of creating granite or rose granite or any impermeable rock due to the pressures required only found in geological nature. Sorry if I didn't reply to any comments, having read though the discussion from my initial comment I am humbled to have opened such a debate. Peace 👌

@Phil Whatever Please explain to us, Phil, how a compass could have POSSIBLY aided them in any way. It points to magnetic north and..... that's it. How does that help? Not to mention that the compass was invented IN CHINA sometime between 202 BC - 220 AD. The oldest ancient pyramid, the Pyramid of Djoser, dates back to around 2670 BCE. The rest of the pyramids were constructed anywhere between 2612 BCE to 664 BCE. That means the VERY LAST pyramid built was completed more than 450 years BEFORE such a thing as the compass existed, in a country that is 5000 miles away. The earlier pyramids were up to 2000 years earlier than that. In any case, a compass would have been as useful as a wristwatch when it came to making precision cuts in stone.

Is it at all possible that they were able to crush the blocks into like a concrete mixture and pour these giant slabs then they would have these exact seems? Is there a way to test the rocks to see if that was possible? Do the rocks contain some kind of bonding agent ? Or show some kind of signs of such? It would have made carrying that much weight from one point to the next much easier if it was crushed first and then made into a type of concrete block mixture at the site?

@Enso obviously for us it's the most logical thing. But maybe they did things differently. I'm not saying they were using lasers or some alien technology to build this but it's not so hard to imagine that they were advanced and very intelligent civilization when you take in account for how many years humans have existed. Look at what we have achieved in the last few years. Maybe they had a lot of time to learn or know these things.

@Vivek Jadhav Yeah, maybe... but the size is much smaller than the others and it's hollow. Also, how do we that's actually a cut and not an error in the molding process?

I worked with stone for 4 years... We made pavement, stairs, walls etc. The most difficult thing to do was to connect two pieces on right angle by making a 45 degrees cut on each piece. And we are talking lengths of 30cm tops thickness 5cm max. Using a diamond saw. Even slightest mistake and two pieces don't connect 100%. Sure I could put more effort and time and make it 100% but the point was how much effort it takes with modern tools to connect two tiny surface areas which makes me just gasp when I see those razor thin connections on giant stone blocks... Its literally impossible. I never seen anybody pointing this out in Egypt. Like wtf that's impossible. Ugh this why I want to visit the place myself to see in person all these details then you can appreciate the level of difficulty or should I say impossibility.

IMHO these bronze tools were either for ritualistic use and/or they were only mean for burials. Just like you probably won't see too many mechanics getting buried today with their socket wrench set or their hammers. The actual tools were valuable and therefore they got used and passed down. Whenever a tool wasn't serviceable anymore they took it to a blacksmith to get it melted and remade (just like you would today). They had the technology. In fact, Tutankhamun was buried with an iron dagger (you can see it in the new Cairo Museum). This means they knew about iron, understood how to work it and could make a knife out of it. If they could make a dagger out of iron they could make chisels and saws out of iron. The only problem, was that iron was very, very expensive to obtain since all the source of iron for Egypt is in Lower Egypt in the Lake Nasser area or Aswan areas. I suspect that iron was probably more expensive and/or more valuable at the time than gold. You see plenty of gold items in tombs were made of gold, but none of iron (or at least only one so far). However, since most tombs were robbed, we don't know if perhaps some Pharaohs were buried with iron. I mean a rather minor Pharaoh was buried with plenty of gold and one iron blade, so it's not beyond the possibility that other Pharaohs were also buried with iron, but their tombs got robbed. Why haven't we found any iron tools? Simple, they were kept being used and the folks who had enough money to have iron tools buried with them got robbed. If you are going to rob a tomb, no sense in leaving anything valuable behind. Leave the stone figurines and the jars behind (why not), but iron or gold? No way.

Not to mention that ancient egyptian carver basically have no other craft in their life other than that. Unlike modern people who're more adept at many different things in life, ancient people only focus on one thing and achieve mastery like none other. These crafts are entirely possible with minimal tool and tech, as long as they got the time and will to do it. We often forget what human being are capable of when they've got the will. Either when cornered, or when they've got no other way of achieving it.

Hi! This is so interesting! One thing though, in one of the clips there is a sign next to the tools that says these are tools found at the site of the building THAT WERE PROBABLY USED TO BREAK APART THE BUILDING. In other words, not to build but to pry apart... Granted you and Forester and some others are very right that technology other than these bronze and copper and iron tools were probably used to build the stone buildings. The chisel marks on the walls of the tunnels in the Bent Pyramid do show that chiseling was done. But the sawing is another matter. NOT to mention the fitting together of the odd shapes! What i love best is that this stonework is found on another continent, America, as well. Machu Pichu.

so you must not have seen the only 1 or 2 examples of a giant block still in the quarry but 1/2 cut because it cracked and they left it. 1/2 of it is already cut and the othe 1/2 is in solid granite proving they cut them in the quarry with precision before moving them. Not to say they didn't have a way to fix something at the building site to make it more of a fit but we don't have that evidence but we do have the quarry evidence.

Probably watched 100’s of videos on this topic during these last 2 years. What I find interesting is the same techniques seem to be present all around earth. Who knows what type of knowledge was known over 12,000 years ago. Most of the technology such as using radio waves and electricity is not invented by us. But rather found and used. I truly believe that they used some kind of energy which we don’t know about today. Or there was something lost due to changes on earth. Perhaps to do with electromagnetism. Nikola Tesla truly knew more than we know today about this.

Okay. Let's walk this out. What was the technology exactly? The ability to make a flat surface. It was realized that chiseling was not capable of achieving such a flat surface as to allow much greater heights to buildings, as well as much more efficient seems for aqueducts. Once the ability was mastered to move such large objects the technology to flatten them was born. Lapping. Get them as roughly flat as possible and then put some grit between and rub them together. Provided the grit is consistent both with flatten to "perfect" identical planes. That "perfect" thing becomes a known, something by which to measure other things. That's the technology. And the energy was human effort.

It seems to me that they outsourced all the highly skilled stone work. Especially early on. All of the volcanic and hard stones that were sourced from very far away were intricately carved with fantastic skill. Some even having muscular and skeletal features. But most impressive was the symmetry. Then it seems those objects were delivered and then crudely carved into by lesser skilled Egyptians. It's possible they had employed or enslaved people from those other areas due to their skill. Learned what they could and once those people died off or their relationship crumbled, the Egyptians took the stone work upon themselves. This would explain earlier work being so much better than mid dynasty work. Before eventually completely changing their technique when the Romans showed up. Likely hiring them to do the job and the Egyptians simply carved the hieroglyphics into the Roman built statues and structures. It could even be that early Egyptians conquered the original inhabitants. Moved in, learned what they could from the last of the survivors, inherited what was already there and scratched hieroglyphics into it. For some fair reasoning on that behalf, look at the sculptures of older pharaohs compared to later dynasty pharaohs. The features are vastly different. Almost as if they weren't even the same culture. We know this to be fact in the latest dynasties when white Europeans held the throne. Particularly around the time the Romans arrived. How unlikely would it be that there were multiple intercultural relationships going on throughout the kingdom? You see thinner lips and noses, features held generally by white Europeans. But earlier carvings definitely seemed to have features more reminiscent of African descent than middle eastern descent. What if the bronze skinned middle eastern people we know today are simply a biproduct of the melting pot that Egypt was. And at different times throught the 3000 years ancient Egypt was around, different cultures held various levels of influence. We also know that ancient Egypt's southern neighbors were and still are physically different. From their skin tone to physical features. And we all know that a couple hundred miles difference isn't going to lead to that kind of physiological evolutionary difference, especially when the overall climate is the same throughout that period. But back on track, these neighbors just so happened to be the source of most all the Egyptian gold, also carved statues. Exquisitely detailed statues. To the same degree of quality and to the same level of artistry as the early granite and diorite work we see in Egypt. So first they found the sphinx and the people living there. Engrained themselves and created very early pre dynastic Egypt. Learned stone work from the indigenous people. Found gold from their neighbors who were likely one in the same. Worked stone and gold. Got infatuated with gold, still dabbled with stone work but not too much as gold and jewelry became more popular. This is also when they were introduced to paint in higher quantities. Mixed more socially, went through drought and sold off most of their valuables, started to become stronger again but then the Romans showed up. Reintroduced them to stone work in the Roman style. Then Rome got bored, left, got run out whatever and then Egypt finally crashed. The stone workers carried their skill as they migrated into the middle east. Creating the works at Jordan and in Iraq/Iran before a new religion put a stop to it all. That would also explain why you see what appears to be a blend of styles of Egyptian and Roman works through the middle east in the early a.d. years. If you made it this far, welcome to the ramblings and mind of an ADHD high school dropout with obsessive traits. I hope I made at least a little sense.

I'm pretty sure they have examples of stencil work in Egypt. They likely would have had scribes draw out whole inscriptions or rough scratch them into walls and then have the stone cutters come in and do the actual carving. Not much different than today, we have engineers plan out all the work then hand those plans off to the construction crews. But they may have had stamps as well for common symbols. It would likely not be too far beyond the average person that dedicated themselves to writing for 450 generations to come up with a simple wooden stamp/stencil. Dip it in paint and press it against the wall then carve out the lines.

Any technology that involved cutting huge stones in a short amount of time would leave a serious trail behind. So there is no doubt they carved these mega structures. Egypt had many things that made this high degree of skill possible, such as a healthy and large labor population, geographical isolation, domination, and specification, cultural unification, and TIME. They had literally thousands of years to hone their stone skills. Can you imagine a continuous Nation for 10's of thousands of years while being in a position of geographical perfection in terms of invasion? The age of the oldest nation presently is a debatable 1500 years but 500 would be a good average for modern nations. Our own misconceptions and biases make it impossible to understand what the Egyptians accomplished not just in stonemasonry but in a variety of very specialized fields. Every aspect of their life and culture was centered on religion and building.

You've answered a question I have had for years. Surely they must have found many tools that were worn out and discarded, or accidently dropped down a crack and irretrievable, or stored and forgotten. Seemingly not. It does suggest that they had methods that may not have required 'tools' to cut the blocks so accurately, hence there is no archaeological evidence.

Hello! Very interesting video. There are many hypothesis on how the ancient ones could had use levitation and some sort of power to make the stone malleable like clay so they could be fitted nicely....If this was the case, I believe there will be discrepancies in the crystal alignment of the stone at least near the edges of one of these stones compare to a stone cut with tools. The malleable stone theory who have the crystal alignment kind of off kilter compare to a ordinary stone. Don't you think this is worth checking?

Polygonal megalithic stonework is also seen throughout Peru. It's as though the same technology, if not the same culture, was working with multiton stones in granite (Egypt) and andesite (Peru) both exceptionally hard stones.

I've been seeing alot of discussion about cutting stone with large tuning fork staves seen in hieroglyphics. Also contemplation that the stones were floated using vibration. Alternatively, I've sometimes wondered if they may have known how to liquefy stone without heat and pour them into framed moulds that would have been removed once the stone returned to a solid state.

15:45: Could be evidence of a rapid cutting method - but could also be evidence of an automated one that ran reliably enough to leave it running at slow speed as well, some sort of set-it-and-forget-it type of process. The more challenging problem from that carved box is the interior edges. I'd definitely be investigating grinding using grit at least as durable as the stone to be cut. There would have to be a LOT of grinding waste even with ultra-hard grit and it would be easy to identify at a work site. Grinding by dragging the stones over a grit pathway? Grinding by dragging specially prepared apparatus over grit on the stone? Is there a possible source for micro-abrasives the Egyptians could have collected and used in an assembly line operation?

A low tech solution to reconstuct some of the granite work would be with friction... use stones to sand down other stones to create shape. So it's not stone cutting but sanding down. For example you have 2 blocks you know will have to fit together in a building...you stack these on top of each other and through some method, say "grease/ animal fat and manpower" you rub these blocks together until they fit perfectly. I know this would work with normal building bricks...tbh something very intricately fitted together would be easily achievable... ( if you would put the work in)

@WaBaLaKa the problem is really only with the granite though. The 2 million blocks in the pyramid are limestone..most of them are not surgically fitted or shaped..those blocks are very workable with the tools they had. Obv 2 million blocks is still a lot of work though. But the problem isn't the material, it's the logistics, the workforce numbers, the organisation.

I may have missed it in the video but could they not have used some sort of mortar that filled in the gaps? Also, this assumes the precision extends across the whole of the touching surfaces, it's quite possible the hidden surfaces are not so precise as the joined edges we see. A thin line on the ground hints at joints but might be replicated by just scratching a straight line across a stone. Has anyone ruled out the possibility they're some type of expansion joint?

Feels like all the pyramids around the world were build around the same time back when our ancestors had some superb technology that was lost or erased. Probably by natural events. Just think how far we;ve developed in the past hundreds of years. Now imagine that people before us had thousands and thousands of years to develop their technology. It could easily have been way more superiour to ours or maybe we, being where we are, can't even think that it could have been possible to have something completely different that doesn't involve fuel etc.

Notice what appears to be air bubbles near the seam of the 3 blocks at 6:12 - 6:21. This reminds me of the hypothesis involving using a giant lens to melt stones with the sun, and pouring them in place, instead of cutting and moving them. It would take much less work to do this, and ever since I heard that I thought it was a great idea. It would explain the perfect seems between the stones. If one had cooled and solidified, gravity would give it a flat and level top surface. If the next block was poured in a molten form on top of the previous block, there would be no space between them. Another factor is that molten rock has a very low viscosity, and if poured fast enough, air bubbles would get trapped and become unable to float to the top before solidification. I have yet to hear a better hypothesis for how these structures were constructed. Just look at those cavities in the rock, that would have had to have been from air or water during some process at some point.

The Egyptian civilisation lasted a long time, it started in or before the copper age, but ended in the iron age. It would be interesting to see those figures for stone blocks subdivided according to whether the Egyptians of the time had copper, bronze or iron tools. Also the ratio of Limestone blocks to Granite blocks as Limestone is much easier to cut.

Hey Jimmy, I keep finding new relevant information by cross referencing others. For example, your friend at uncharted X measured the Egypt granite box. That granite box is actually a grade 0 reference stone, which is a machinists tool and part of a gauge system for measuring. It was machined to the exact same standard, 2-3 microns is our highest for any machined surface. It proves that ancients had machining technology, quite similar to ours now which is amazing since we didn't know them. Very expensive technology, no less, I would never be able to afford these kinds of tools they must have had. This makes no sense, from any chronological perspective at all, Egyptians shouldn't have made anything like this. That stone could be used to make a few hundred normal sized 0 grade reference blocks, each one cost thousands of dollars US in today's market of tools. This means whatever they measured was this much bigger than what we're used to seeing, maybe it was part of the reason they were able to achieve great precision in megalithic construction. Precision work requires precision tools, everyone knows this. Maybe it's more technical than a construction tool, I don't know but it could be the greatest machinist square ever made. We're not looking at a decoration, the granite box obviously had other purposes, on a near microscopic level. Only an engineer would ever need such a tool, maybe a machinist or scientist, or something along those lines, art like this would be impossible without technology. From face value, the term granite box, is not something you hear very often is it ?. It's because nobody makes a granite box, it would be some type of giant tool which nobody makes today. This means all of the others in the Osirion and Saqqara are suspicious too. This stuff is much too hard to work with, like a diamond almost, do we make diamond boxes ?. People might find those suspicious.They make bulletproof armor from this stuff in Russia, today. I doubt the Egyptians made giant boxes using this same material to bury a prized bull, 5000 years ago, no chance. Whatever it was, it was made to a much higher standard than anything in modern times. This is kind of spooky...

@QEC The walls in Cusco are absolutely incredible, I think it's hardly debatable evidence of technology, There's no chance of that being a composite material, granite takes such a long time to form itself it can't be mistaken for anything else. Truly unique material. It looks like they quarried long sections of granite between 10-20 tons and then started to cut them into smaller pieces, but the polygonal shape cannot be duplicated. It's so much work for literally no reason to make it jigsaw like or polygonal, or even granite. When we see granite structures, we should pay attention because the ancients were showing off. The people in Cusco knew the people in Egypt who built the pyramids, because they did the same type of unbelievable construction. There's polygonal walls everywhere, none of them should exist. These are all pre flood artifacts, from a lost civilization that only the writings of religious texts can recall. The flood itself not being talked about as a scientific fact yet. I have been addicted to finding out more answers about them for a very long time, a lot of good things have changed because people are so much more open minded about this now. I have forgotten everything that most people think about these things, but it's not even remotely close to what I see when I look at them now, I know what they are. People are still being so ignorant though, some say only piles of rocks ?. Why don't they just say I'm too self centered to pay attention to them ?. I want to make a difference, if it serves a good purpose. I think in order to do that someone must convince the scientific community how construction and machining works, how to identify construction technology, because they either have no idea or they are covering something up. People assume scientists know all of these subjects but it's another industry and field. I need to go to Egypt and take some official measurements some day.

@QEC I did a little more research since 2 weeks ago and discovered that NASA has a flat surface or floor they use in a lab, it covers a 20 foot circle and it's not as flat as that one granite sarcophagus.The "sarcophagus" was a few times more refined than what NASA was able to do over a 20 foot circle, which may make it the flattest man made object known for it's size. I would need to do some more research to find out for sure, but the fact they outperformed NASA is pretty impressive. People should know about this, especially considering it's from ancient times. I am under the impression based on talking to people so far, that it would impossible to machine something that big today, this accurately, or recreate the box even in flat pieces and gluing them together. Glue would definitely be needed because we just can't machine those inside cuts this accurately at all. Anyone in granite work can confirm this. Every time someone measures this box the results are ridiculous, the guy who found the box measured a tolerance of +/- 0 thousands, actually the same as Unchartex X, people reported the wrong measurement, since the math was lost in translation. Uncharted X he measured down farther to 2.5 microns, so nobody can claim it wasn't a piece of technology. It can technically be used for precision measurement, right now.

If you could fashion a large thin sheet of copper or bronze and spin it fast enough you'd have a massive angle grinder.

a few years ago I've been to Carrara region in Italy and watched the marble industry. I got a feeling for the whole industry, its dimensions, its work processes and steps, the quarrying as such, the transport and logistics. ever since, Egypt and South America SCARE me. I can imagine the industry required for those buildings and cities. NO WAY with "regular" processes. I have seen a mountain, which was missing half of its top, literally. A really weird sight, btw. I estimate the missing volume for that of around one large pyramid. But that marble has been cut out in CENTURIES, the last two of which on industrial scale. The quarrying effort for all of Egypt's stone is unimaginable, in my estimation the whole people of Egypt would have needed centuries - while doing nothing else. The "energy balance" just doesn't work out. There MUST have been a very high degree of machining and "automatisation", in quarrying as well as in transport/logistic.

If I was the Egyptians I'd figure out how to create artificial limestone and granite blocks. It would be way easier to simply cast the blocks on location. And if you used something like paper (or another thin organic material) between the blocks, then it would disintegrate after a certain amount of time while leaving only a tiny gap between the blocks. It's even possible that you would only use that material on the edges and let the middle of the block basically fuse with the block below. We do have concrete and synthetic granite, so I would think it would be possible, just a bit surprising if Egyptians knew. But I think it would be more likely than them cutting millions of giant stone blocks over just a few centuries.

"Artificial limestone and granite blocks" do not sole any of the mysteries of Egypt. Even if they had that technology, just the construction of the great pyramid of Giza would still require the mining, transportation, and installation (with incredible precision) of several hundreds of tons of rock EVERY day for twenty years. Then there is the (not so) small problem of a nation of hunter-gatherers feeding the vast workforce required by traditional explanations. As pointed out in the video, there are hundreds of other megalithic structures throughout Egypt, including the many high precision statues carved out of the hardest rocks known to mankind. There is no sane way of avoiding the fact that they had remarkable technology that we cannot replicate today. I look forward to the day when Egyptology abandons fairy stories, and does some real science.

I am currently in school for archaeology and I wanted to say that I appreciate your approach to these topics. Unlike some more conspiratorially-minded folks, you rarely present far-out theories for how ancient peoples could have achieved such great feats of architecture. You simply present the fact that the mystery is there and maintain the dignity of these old cultures by instead suggesting that they themselves possessed technology and techniques lost to us, without explaining away these ancient marvels with aliens. There is a great amount of nuance in studying the ancient world, which many academics have been coming to realize in recent years, of that I can assure you. Many of my professors would agree with you that more work needs to be done into the processes that went into monumental architecture. Experimental archaeology has been fast growing in popularity, and hopefully one day it will bring us answers to these questions. All throughout the ancient world, seemingly impossible things have been created by nothing more than ingenious humans beings. At the end of the day, I think this is the takeaway that everyone should have.

@N. C. The word Copt is derived from Greek word 'Gypto' which means Egypt. so Coptic really means Egyptian regardless of religion. I am a 'Coptic' Egyptian Christian myself. It is true that there has been a lot of mixing among other nationalities. The mixing is more pronounced in the North (mixing with Greeks/turks and other mediterraneans, and less in the South of Egypt.) Poeple in the deep south have more pronounced facial features as the Ancient Egyptian statues, like Amnhotep and Akhenaton. Facts: Egypt was 5 million when the Arabs invaded, and there whole Arab army was only 5000 initially. 500 years later Egypt was still 65% christian (or may be they were athiests? we do not know) during the crusades when Egypt fought the crusades under Salahuldin. The conversions happened gradually with political and economic policies, over a period of 200 years. Egypt is now 10% Christian, but the oppression is the same for both muslim and christian peasants. The religion is used to divide the nation and weaken it internally.

Why is it so inconceivable that the Egyptians were able to harness the power of diamonds and diamond dust to create these works of art? Gold is hard to find just like diamonds but the Egyptian have proved to be plentiful in gold, so it's not far fetched to believe they had diamonds has a buildings tool. Introduce that and the innovative spirit and wonders could be made.

@pgame20 My dear, pgame20: People who love Egypt so much like you and Jimmy deserve to have honorary Egyptian Citizenship. You are more Egyptian than those who use fake patriotism to hide history and the truth from the world. One of those people used to be the head of Antiquities in Egypt for more than 20 years (Z.H.). They say they work for the good of Egypt, yet in reality they are no more than Tomb robbers and thieves. There is a famous saying here we say "Egypt is the mother of the world" مصر ام الدنيا . Would a mother love one child more than another? NO. Egypt is like a mother duck calling to her ducklings. Those things don't belong to us. THEY BELONG TO HUMANITY. We are just gifted to be here. We Egypt peasants found ourselves here in those little villages along the Nile, and we know little about the world except the Nile flooding every year, and bringing harvest, and those beautiful things the ancients have left all around us. We need honest educated Americans and other nationalities to help us PRESERVE, DIGNIFY and help us bring out what message is behind all those mysteries.

The only explanation that makes some kind of sense aside from stronger tools completely rusting and dissolving away over time.

I spoke to a person from Sudan where there is also pyramids and he said they use to use a quarry grind up the stone to move crushed stone /dirt mix to the location then make a type of cement with it allowing the precision described. The Roman’s did the same thing with their cement but used a slightly different mix. The art of making Roman concrete is lost. If his history recount is true like Roman concrete it makes it the most superior concrete in the world. Currently Roman concrete has that title and our modern society cannot replicate that. Archeologists will never listen to the Sudanese people on this due to a long standing issue of racism which is slow to change in certain fields. They also have a habit of dumbing down previous civilisations who for all there primitives were in some ways way more advance than our civilisation. It’s not just seen with the Egyptians but all over the world in many ancient cultures.

If you look at the surface if the stone you can tell its been chiseled not pounded. Wonder what types of tools they had. Makes me think the pyramids took 50 years not 20 and sawing motions would have to be evident on the surface to tell what kind of sawing motion was used. Also the work ethnic of these workers was astonishing. Also seems to me that when you put two stone blocks together closely and then saw through the gap it makes a mated surface that would get it that close as shown.

I find it amazing that it took the entire industrial revaluation and many years plus and then a hand full of toolmakers to figure out the pyramids and many other ancient sites could not have been made by modern man. Yet with so many depictions of men you would have to think that it was. Will we know how it was done before that section of the earths crust gets churned under the surface again? How many years will that be. It's clear the Egyptians lived at this place but that's about it. They just made up stories of how it was created and there not even very good ones at that. The stories from India are much more believable as fantastic as they are. The Indians past creations look even more complex to figure out.

The mystery is bigger than that expressed here. Add to it that this precision, the shape of stones and many other aspects are duplicated around the world in structures that are of the same era, yet there is no record anywhere that the civilizations involved had any interaction with each other. In Peru, there are examples of where the Inca made additions to these structures where the newer masonry suggests the original technology simply vanished and they werent even able to come close to reproducing the presicion or any aspect of the design. The newer additions are representative of what we would expect to see using hand tools, completely contrasting the original structure. It is obvious to me that who ever had created the technology simply ceased to exist along with the knowledge.

Is there any possibility that instead of carting heavy blocks, they learnt how to create a concrete to bond the granite together? 🤔 That way, they build the forms of blocks, set the 'concrete' using the rose quartz from the quarry. When they remove the forms the chisel out any bumpy pieces on the face and move on to the next square? I see there are chisel marks that go across the join in the blocks and this would explain it. Also, this way the edges would have no gaps.

Yes, they had an ancient technology. Their own. Every truly great civilization in recorded history has achieved extraordinary architectural, mathematical, literary, and philosophical benchmarks. Then empires fall, “dark ages” filled with squalor follow, and, later on, people are *stunned* to rediscover remnants of the “lost” technologies that came before, often mistakenly believing that previous eras could not have possibly produced such wonders of their own expertise. Pick up a history book, if only to remind yourself that it *will* happen again and that, one day, some dipshit is going to stumble upon a fossilized hard-drive or smartphone and say, “Aliens from space must have helped those people make these amazing things!

Excellent vid, man. You made an essential point: go and see those thangs for yourself! I did, twice! And I did bring a cc to test the seams. Incredible! So when you actually stand next to a pyramid and really grasp the scale of what happened there you realize that granite (7 on a hardness scale, where diamonds rate at 10) verses even arsenic laden copper tools, specific to that part of the world, is still freaking impossible. Keep in mind the great pyramid is approx. 2.3 million blocks, where you might have to cut and grind 3 or 4 surfaces per block for about 30 years, give or take. There are 15,750,000 minutes in 30 years' time. Let's say 3.5 surfaces per block. It's at least 3 surfaces: base, left and right sides. That's approximately 6.9 million surfaces. Which means you'd have to quarry, cut, grind and place 1 block every .....wait for it: 2.28 minutes and this is happening in a 24 hour day! Let's say it was a brutal job and everyone "only" worked 12hr shifts. That means that you'd have to place all blocks twice as fast for 30 years. That's about one minute for every quarried, transported, cut, ground, and placed block, in a 12 hour day, every day, for 30 years. Impossible. Here's another point: where did all that wood come from to keep the fires going to make the liquid copper to cast the tools? They cut down their food sources, such as their coconut palm and date trees to make fires to build pyramids in the middle of the desert for 30 years? Or just go into the Sudan and take their trees? This entire exercise becomes more ridiculous the closer you look at it. And this is just the math for ONE pyramid. Those Egyptians have succeeded so spectacularly where we moderns, by comparison, even with our tools now, wouldn't even rate on any scale.

You caught my interest, but after viewing your video, the mystery you pose can be easily solved with one word: SAND. The method of using sand between two large or small rocks is elementary to how the Egyptians fitted stones used in your example. Nice try but most educated professionals have known for a very long time, that the use of sand is the key to this method, which by the way was used in most pyramids and structures world wide. Simply said, there is not mystery, just common sense from a very intelligent people.. and no UFOs were involved in the any construction world wide. Your video is a bit misleading, do to ignorance, but please do research before posting videos. Thanks.

@DesmondCreighton Even if the thermal expansion of these 30+ ton blocks of granite contributed to the precision we see in the stone today I think you're still underplaying the work done here. In order for these structures to keep their integrity through high temperatures, environmental effects, and the lack of upkeep these had to be made extremely well. Furthermore, as depicted in the video, no bronze tools are capable of making timely and close-precision lines in these massive stones, much less the transportation of said blocks that very likely are heavier before being made to "specification" to fit to the other blocks. Noticeable gaps and ill-made cuts don't just disappear with time, especially with erosion.

In many cases the level of precision does not need to extend to the whole surface of the blocks. Only the edges that can be seen need to fit , the interior can have imperfections. This would make things easier. Think of modern bricks and cinder blocks with huge voids,yet they still fit nicely to the eye. Hold two dice together, they fit very tight, but you know there are dimples that represent the number on each one on the inside surface. See the inside corner at 4:27

Outside of the box thinking?.. Search TRvid for “melted stones.” Are they assuming the stones were in their final solid form when they were constructed, or is there any room for a process that would involve a less solid state of these blocks during construction? Obviously not like concrete, but limestone can probably be created since it created itself at one time, and heat has an effect on stone that changes its state that would allow blocks to settle into precise seams as it cools.

Temperature extremes can cause granite to split. I figured this out once while having a campfire next to a granite boulder. When it was time to leave, to be on the safe side I poured water onto the fire. This quick change caused the granite to sheer, and it did so in fairly flat sheets. Just having a fire on one in the winter has the same effect as the fire cools the air causes the rock to sheer off. Wouldn't explain everything in the video but just trying to think outside the box. Perhaps temperature manipulation of some form on the rock was the technology. Great video and channel.

Normally only one explanation possible. The joints of two rather rough cut stones were filled up with a paste of granite and organic glue. The organic substances were eaten by bacteria and are now gone. The fine lines were made as last step to impress people. (succeeding ) They were cut in the drying paste when it had almost hardened. Repairs in case of a mistake were always possible. Drying out meant the stones came even closer together which explains a line so thin, a knife couldn't have made it. Proof could be found by lifting two stones apart to see how it looks inside. The joints there should be very rough and irregular.
