Brothers of the Serpent

Jan 6, 2019

GMA of LateNite fame joins us in the Tangent Cube for the 2019 inaugural episode, bringing his engineering expertise to the subject of impossiblocks, and also recounts a snake expedition he took into the mountainous wilderness of New York State to look for an ancient serpent effigy aligned to the constellation of Draco. 

LOTS of pics for this show!

Rough hewn box still in the tunnel. Not much room to get hundreds of slaves and ropes around that thing

The infamous "Core #7", note the feed rate lines circling the core

Zoom in on this image to see the incredibly thin core drill width that is being pointed out

...and still more evidence

Ba'albek Trilithon - The three blocks marked in red. Note relative size people on the ground below


Ba'albek Trilithon - the weights listed are way on the low end of possibility. These blocks are probably closer to 1100-1200 tons

"Stone of the Pregnant Woman" in the Ba'albek quarry, 1 kilometer from the site. Until recently was the largest known cut stone ever made

Another enormous cut stone, partway between the quarry and the site


Someone was MOVING this block through the mountains, when they suddenly dropped it, left, and never returned. It has not moved since
