Comment 4 Tons vs. 50 Tons vs. 1100 Ton (Score 4, Funny) 152

The four-ton monsters, made of Preseli Spotted Dolerite â" a chemically altered igneous rock harder than granite â" were mined in the Preseli Mountains in Pembrokeshire and then rolled, dragged, and floated the 200 miles to the site on the banks of the Avon in Wiltshire."

Four-ton stones are miniscule compared to the 50-ton trilithons at big Stonehenge or the over 1100-ton Stone of the South at Baalbek in Lebanon.

It boggles the mind that primitive people would want to erect such monumental structures when smaller stones would have been orders of magnitude easier to cut and transport. As the Romans, the Aztecs and the Maya have shown, it's possible to create impressive monuments with smaller stones. In my opinion, some among the ancient priesthoods had secret knowledge of a technology that allowed them to levitate and transport huge stones over great distances. Too bad they died without leaving a record of it. I have excellent cause to believe that the secret of levitation will be uncovered soon.

There is clear evidence that we are swimming in an ocean of clean energy, lots and lots of it. A new form of transportation and energy production technology will arrive soon, one based on the realization that we are immersed in an immense lattice of energetic particles. This is a consequence of a reevaluation of our understanding of the causality of motion. Soon, we'll have vehicles that can move at tremendous speeds and negotiate right angle turns without slowing down and without incurring damages due to inertial effects. Floating cities, unlimited clean energy, earth to Mars in hours, New York to Beijing in minutes... That's the future of energy and travel.

A huge amount of money is spent around the world for new environmentally friendly transportation and energy production technologies. This all well and good but all this money is being wasted. There is a much better way and here is why.

We are on the verge of a breakthrough in physics because there is reason to believe that we are swimming in a huge sea of squeakly clean energy, ready for the taking. A recent reevaluation of our understanding of the causality of motion leads to the inescapable conclusion that we are immersed in an immense lattice of energetic particles. Soon, we'll have vehicles that can move almost anywhere at tremendous speeds and negotiate right angle turns without slowing down and without incurring any damage due to inertial effects. Floating cities, earth to Mars in hours, New York to Beijing in minutes... That's the future of energy and travel.

You don't understand motion even if you think you do.
