African Temples.

African Temples.
Andre Willers
5 Apr 2010

I'm not allowed any more to tell you where you are going .
But I can tell you where you have been .

The Ruins:
Stretching for 3000 km across Southern Africa.
These are not ruins that can simply be wished away . They stretch on kilometer by kilometer . The estimate for one city is 651 billion tonnes of stone . Not a trivial exercise .
See "Temples" by Tellinger and Heine ISBN13: 978-1-920153-08-3

The aerial photographs are incontestable . It is real .

The Boing
This I heard myself . A stone being whacked and giving forth a sweet , monotone frequency that decreases in intensity but not frequency .
Another incontestable . Ding-an-sich.

Insect exoskelotens:
These are sensitive to external sound-harmonics . Internal spikes where muscles , nerves and sinews attach will heat up drastically . Crop-eating insects were sensitive to certain frequencies .

Extrapolation :

Some unsung genius noticed , while whacking one river stone against another , that the thingie gave out a sound and certain insects fled the area .

They then amplified the effect with very circular stonewalls , with no mortar .
Somebody walked around the inner circle whacking the stones , setting up a standing wave .
It is important to notice that the wall was not mortared . The gaps allowed the sound waves to escape . About 1/3 of the sound waves was broadcast over the landscape . These chased away the insects .
The walls were 1/3 porous to sound .

Some frequencies would considerably enhance nitrogen fixation .
Like fertilizer .

You ended up with circular stone sound generators as both insecticides and fertilizers

From the evidence , it was quite effective . Circular sound structures were surrounded by irregular stone fences , mostly to keep herbivores out .

Sound waves irradiated surrounding fields
This was not agriculture . It was more akin to the farming in pre-Spanish California .
They did not plough or plant , but productivity in terms of grasses was very high .Grazing animals were used to harvest . The energy relations are very simple given a low insect population .
The population density was very high , About the same as present .

They ended up in a typical Malthusian fix .
There is no evidence of war ,.
The rainfall decreased (see "Magadigadi sea"
Overpopulated areas died down (as happened in the Middle East circa1000 AD)

Thousands and thousands of kilometers of dwellings were gradually abandoned .
I know that humans prefer a catastrophic end , but a whimper is usually the end of stupidity .

They overpopulated , the rainfall decreased , the food decreased , and the remaining population simply went back to subsistence farming , abandoning civilization .

So much for that .
