Why Pyramids?

Post by n11pilot » Fri Aug 24, 2018 4:48 pm

This isn't specifically about lost civilizations but then maybe it is. From the Ziggurat of UR to the temples of Chichen Itza, pyramidal structures can be found on almost every continent with continual habitation. They are admittedly not identical to one another and different building materials are used including earth but they all do have a very similar shape. The question is why? Is this something that is instinctive in people? If you give a small child blocks eventually he or she will come up with a stack of those blocks that can more or less pass for a pyramid. Is it a construction convention where it is simply easier to narrow buildings at the top to make use of inclined planes and conserve building material? Is it a religious convention? Is it a clue that there may have once been a lost super civilization?

Perhaps we will never know the answer but it is food for thought and conjecture.
