The Pyramids of Egypt could be made of geopolymers
Our common world is full of extraordinary things; there are elements and constructions that are credited to the work of the hands of our species, but if we analyze it carefully, it seems impossible that humanity has built it.
An example of these are the pyramids of Egypt; scientists explain that they were made of large blocks of mud, transported using wooden trunks and brute force, very necessary, because we are talking about pieces that weighed tons.
One of the theories about how the pyramids were made is that the blocks that make up the structure are geopolymers, which is in principle fundamental, like that of organic polymers derived from petroleum, but which, in this case, are chains made by inorganic molecules such as minerals.
The theory of geopolymers explains in a certain way, the durability and characteristics of each of the pieces that make up the pyramids, but it is a way of manufacturing materials that is modern and that there would be no way that the technology necessary to manufacture them in antiquity existed.
The pyramids of Egypt have incredible accuracy
Not only that, this geopolymer theory would also suggest that it was only necessary to transport liquid geopolymer rock, something that would require less effort and would explain the millimeter accuracy in the size of the blocks and how aligned they are with each other.
This is an incredible finding, but it makes one think the unthinkable: would the Egyptians be at a higher level of knowledge in certain areas of technology compared to our era, and would there have been a source of knowledge at that time that we do not recognize today?
Many scientific studies can serve as a complement, such as the one describing that the composition of the blocks of the pyramids are made in a different concentration than the natural limestone found in the adjacent regions.
