A megalithic building equation using Edward Leedskalnin as 1.

One Edward Leedskalnin = 236 tons of rock produced to a form and function over a given period of time 12 years with no known machines to lift and move blocks in excess of 30 tons. Don't write genius out of history. How many Edward Leedskalnin's would it take to produce a pyramid in say Egypt? Give Edward a place in history that is fitting of his life's work. Edward Leedskalnin = (S16) and lets start looking at the past with a realistic approach to reconstruct the future with an accurate view of the work accomplished an the actual numbers it would take to produce and support a pyramid or basic megalithic structure.

If you can make the first step in logic with my buddy ED then I can show you how to date megalithic structures around the globe. If not it feels good to write it down every now and then and laugh. Water takes the path of least resistance just like me.

  • May 14 2012: I am saying that he is the only known in an equation of unknowns with a set amount of known material over time moved. This gives a working model for use in a computer simulation. If there are some facts that i am missing about 4th grade educated 99lb Ed please enlighten me. I offer you an idea and now you need to offer some something other then guesswork to how he built it otherwise Edward is indeed representative of a megalithic builder no matter how you think he built it because he is indeed equal to one and no one else is equal to him that I no of.
