The Cusco Wall: Evidence of Technological Regression in Peru

The following assumption of traditional academia was legitimized when it found a theoretical underpinning in the work of 19thcentury biologist Charles Darwin.

Human Societies progress, from primitive to civilized, over time across a number of domains.

Darwin observed the natural world and hypothesized that there were certain underlying laws (e.g., Natural Selection, Survival of the Fittest) governing the evolution of species. His theory, however, was only about the biological world. Despite this, thinkers in other disciplines interpreted Darwin liberally (e.g., Social Darwinism) and applied his theory to diverse subject areas. The fields of History and Anthropology are no exception. With some variations, these fields have been governed by the assumptions of this 19thcentury biological paradigm. This has resulted in a dominant but impotent model with limitations in explanatory scope and a rigid timeline (constructed with selective sampling) that holds in place the myth of unilineal progression.

One of the phenomena that the traditional Paradigm does not help explain is Ancient Megalithic construction. Indeed, as we look at certain Ancient Structures, (e.g., the wall at Cusco in Peru, the Megalithic Stone Structures in New England, The underwater Highway at Bimini and, perhaps most impressive, the enormous megaliths at Yangshan )we note that the inherent timelines and assumptions of this traditional approach do not allow us to situate these structures accurately in History. (The ancient stone structures of New England, for example, are attributed to “colonists”. But the colonists left no record of this type of construction nor did they ever demonstrate these capabilities elsewhere). Further, to follow through and understand the implications of the advanced engineering, as well as the and Astronomical and Geometrically oriented construction of these Megalithic Structures is beyond the scope of this traditional cultural evolutionary paradigm.

The Wall in Cusco

In historical Cusco Peru, there are stone walls built with different styles. One style contains megalithic granite stones forming interlocking polygonal shapes. No mortar was used in fitting these stones together. All the stones are uniquely shaped and yet fit together with no discernable space between them. Their design is such that they have remained intact. Experts have spoken at length about the advanced masonry of these walls and the advanced technology that is implied by their construction.

We are told these megalithic walls were built by the Inca. According to many sources, however, the Inca themselves said the walls were already there. Similar walls appear throughout the world. These other constructions predate the Inca by many centuries.

The walls at Cusco are important because they feature several styles of construction. One wall in particular, called the “Inca Roca Wall”, stands out due to the fact that all the styles of construction are stratified one on top of another. On the bottom of this wall are the large megalithic stones forming a foundation. Directly on top of these are parts of the wall that some historians believe the Inca built. According to Brien Forester, these are smaller imperfectly shaped stones put together using adobe mud as a mortar binding material to keep the stones in place. There is nothing about this part of the wall which is technologically advanced. The next level seems even less advanced. It was allegedly built by the Spanish who used straw and Adobe mud that was shaped

It is a given that a wall can only be built from the bottom up in time. The highly technically advanced bottom layer is therefore the oldest in time. Subsequent layers clearly appear to be the product of builders with less technical skill and ability.

The Wall at Cusco is one of many challenges to this Darwinian based assumption that we should witness technological progression over time. Innumerable out of place artifacts and long buried underwater cities built with incredibly advanced technology are two that stand out. Archeology, History and Anthropology need to discard, supplement, or revise a paradigm that fails to provide an adequate chronological and interpretative framework to the theoretician.
