Megalithic mysteries of Baalbek

In our world, so many mysteries, that a lifetime is not enough to solve them. Moreover, there are some that hardly anyone heard it and knows.

Baalbek is a town in Lebanon, where the world’s largest (known) bricks, really used in construction. Weight about 1000 tons. The most famous of them — the southern stone.

In Baalbek in July 2014 dug up another large megaliths around 1650 tons

In the amusement Park in Switzerland even made a graphic illustration where around a small copy of this stone were placed about 20 reduced copies of modern cranes, which together could raise something like the megalith.

Here the fusion of it with the rock:

It started virability from the rock, but never finished. Concrete and nothing to do with it.

Less well-known second unfinished brick from the quarry of Baalbek, from which later someone cut a few small blocks:

Here are the bricks cut, transferred to a kilometer distance and tightly set into the walls, megalithic structures, so that between adjacent bricks is not possible for a needle stick:

All these megaliths of Ballbek known to the civilized world more or less the last 150 years since the advent of photography in the mid 19th century.

But, in the summer of 2014 has been a breakthrough,which is still little known even to those who are interested in these issues. That prompted me to put pen to paper.

Of German and Lebanese archeologists finally decided to look under southern rock, began to dig and dug at least 2 bricks are also larger, weighing up to 2,000 tonnes:

This is not the most interesting. It turned out the famous southern rock, most likely, cut off from the rock bottom horizontal slit. The section line is exposed when I removed the layer of soil under the stone:

Can be assured it’s just a line only around the megalith, but not through, no one checked until the through if she. To check need this brick to raise the Jack at one end, which is quite realistic. There are jacks in hundreds of tons.

But here’s how this horizontal incision along the stone could do — can’t imagine. The first thing that comes to mind — two people will be on the opposite sides of the stone, stretch string or rope and start to saw, as he walked along the stone. But, how to survive a straight line? Then one has to drag along the megalith alignment guides, and will be will to drive 2 trucks with a tight string between them. If the string will break, then you will need to cut over from the start. That it was not necessary to make thick cut and lay some helpers, so that between the surfaces remained clearance, and this clearance you could put one end of the string. But what happened after the whole process the backwaters? Maybe they’re already banged up and rotted or they were out of ice already melted and absorbed. This is my very rough fantasy, not on the correctness of the claim. Just thinking out loud. Offer your version in the comments

Most likely, it is made radial cutter an unknown high-tech design. Such a beam could make the undercut and under this megalith.

This is not cement is not clear to us building material. And in our time a relatively advanced civilization just no machinery capable of lifting these blocks. Yes and to make such artificial boulders we are not yet in force.

It is also amazing that these units existed for five thousand years and not destroyed. What are they made of? After all, it’s not even natural stone, and some man-made building material. That would solve its structure and start building from such material in modern homes and other buildings. Built on a century! Or rather, the Millennium…

And not surprising if the desire of humanity to penetrate the depths of space, when the Earth itself still so many mysteries? It’s the equivalent of you not having solved a crossword puzzle, throw it and begin to unravel next. Some children’s attitude to everything. Not by chance some of the great noticed that humanity is still in its infancy…
