Of course, that's part of what makes the mysterious things so intriguing, isn't it? Someone, at some time, had a plan but what it was, we'll probably never know.
The Incan Doorway of Aramu Muru in Peru is a large square carved into a surface of rock. It’s 7 meters (23 ft) on each side, smoothed into a flat surface on an outcrop. In the center of the square at the bottom is an alcove a few feet wide and about as tall as a person. It looks like someone had started carving a building into the rock and just gave up.
The door has gained a cult following among believers in the paranormal, who say it’s a magical portal. Locals say it leads to the underworld and can be opened by magicians with special keys or enchantments. Some say it opens at midnight and there is a city on the other side. It’s even been suggested as a gateway to a distant part of the universe.
Could South American natives really have accomplished magical interstellar travel thousands of years ago? It would be nice if that’s what they were attempting. The alternative is that someone was forced to give up their awesome construction project, and that’s just a little bit sad.
I reckon what it boils down to is that we have to decide if we really want to know the answers...or do we want things like this to remain a mystery to be pondered. Maybe not knowing is the best way to go.
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. There is still some rain hanging around and the 'skeeters are flying in formation, ya know?
