How did Ancient builders worked with plastic rocks? Does such type of technology exist today? Were they much more advanced than us? There are many such questions that bewilder us even today.
Possible Explanation for The Technology
Today with the help of neutron emitter and radiation we are able to melt crystalline solid and upon cooling it returns back to original solid state. But this technology comes at a very huge cost. But think of our ancient builders, how they must have achieved this plasticity with really solid rocks such as granite. If we heat rosin rocks it becomes viscous and again return back to solid state on cooling.
Yet, granite isn’t rosin, and the amount it isn’t warmed it doesn’t get gentler. In the event that soften stone to a fluid state, and afterward chill off, at that point it will be totally another material with different properties. I.e the gem grid of stone, obviously, is amiable to warm impacts, yet it separates and loses its properties. Accordingly, it is important to influence on the mineral in this way, that just marginally debilitate the bonds in the precious stone grid without wrecking it.
There is another presumption, how relaxed stone, numerous antiquated legends state about it, coincidentally, the stone can be plastic, following up on it with explicit, extraordinarily chose sound waves. Inky state that the stone watered with juice of obscure tree turned out to be delicate.
Let’s Take the Example of Syigiriya Rocks in SriLanka
Sigiriya implies – “Lion Rock”. Rock is rough level with zone of 1.5 hectares, which remains solitary on the 170 meters over the encompassing plain in the focal point of Ceylon island. Since 1982, Sigiriya was remembered for the rundown of World Heritage Site UNESCO.
As per the official rendition on the highest point of Lion’s stone before the royal residence of ruler Kasyapy set, who governed in Vcentury, and around it was the city with parks and gardens. This purported royal residence is a supernatural occurrence of designing and development workmanship. Furthermore, the most significant is hazy how it was conceivable to perform such volume of work in such distant spot and at such a tallness.
Notwithstanding, it is the tallness, undoubtedly prompted the development strategy. Or maybe even not stature and presence at this tallness nearly all they require for this development. It stayed distinctly to convey the hardware.
On the accompanying picture from this impressions just don’t dispose of. Such inclination that along enormous bit of earth drove with round roller with square spouts.
When we will envision, that the rock was delicate and the extending are imprints from some specialized gadget, which made this stone plastic, all that will fall on the double into the right spot and Sigiriya will show up in the entirety of its magnificence and virtuoso.
In the event that to accept that for mellowing the stone was essential utilization of two kinds of gadgets, for instance, for production of vibrations with various recurrence, at that point the square tracks it is one “contact” and rectangular the other one. Machines, proceeding onward rock made it delicate and gave it the ideal shape.
There is a sensible inquiry without a moment’s delay why? The clarification might be basic. All things considered, it’s a castle and the unclear protuberances here to no end. Marginally trim the smoothed corners, and get a stunner.
It should be noticed a significant second. The individuals who made this and numerous other comparative articles, failed to help nothing. In everything must be available flexibility and agreement this is a trademark and particular component of great structures of such level.
It is indistinct how all these goliath rocks were in this spot. It is conceivable that they were broken out of the stone, arranging the top piece of level and afterward having gave stylish structure, made nursery of rocks.But we should go further. As found in this picture, the upper piece of rock slant varies from base part. What’s more, it is difficult to escape from feeling that rock was poured with something from the top. This is on the grounds that it is so.
In certain spots the top layer even is collapsed up like a conventional mortar. This happens because of the reality, that in spite of the fact that this layer is necessary with the parent material, however has different attributes, it is more strong. This layer causes numerous debates in the logical climate.
Could Ancient Peruvians Soften Stone? Let’s take the example of Saksaywaman.
Lying on the northern edges of the city of Cusco in Peru, lies the walled complex of Saksaywaman. The site is popular for its striking huge dry stone dividers with rocks deliberately slice to fit together firmly without mortar. The stones utilized in the development of the patios at Saksaywaman, which weight as much as 150 tons, are among the biggest utilized in any structure in prehispanic America and show an exactness of fitting that is unrivaled in the Americas. The stones are so firmly dispersed that a solitary bit of paper won’t fit between a considerable lot of the stones. This exactness, joined with the adjusted corners of the squares, the assortment of their interlocking shapes, and the manner in which the dividers lean internal have confused researchers for decades. The strategy used to coordinate unequivocally the state of a stone with the nearby stones is as yet unclear, especially as no instruments were found in the region of the site.
The “standard” clarification is that the Incans some way or another figured out how to utilize a “theory and check” strategy for chipping at the stone with their stone apparatuses, at that point setting the stone set up, perceiving how it fit, at that point lifting it up and chipping further on the off chance that it didn’t fit, at that point checking once more, etc.
