Peru is abundant with ancient sites and a mysterious past. The search is still on for the lost city of Patiti, whilst others claim to have found it.

Cuscu is known as the 'Navel of the Earth' and is surrounded by ancient sites; Sacasahuman known as the Inca fortress is high above Cuscu, but was it a fortress? It was demolished by the Spaniards, but they could not move the larger stones. It looks and has a pre Inca feel about it. Did the Incas find it already constructed and build on top of an existing monolithic construction?

 

All the stone blocks seen in Peru and Bolivia are curious. Often as in the case of Ollantaytambo and Machu Pichu the largest are at the highest points!

The stones are fitted in unique ways. Each block is separate and unique from its neighbors! We are told that the blocks were filed down with a type of sand and wood, the problem with this theory is that almost each and every stone has unique multi – sided surfaces fitting into its neighbor. Each stone could take a lifetime of sanding down…Another most curious thing, and not talked about much, is the curios way certain stones have patterns or makings that are jutting out, (notches) this would require these entire massive surfaces as well as the interlocking edges also sanding down…These features are the strangest of all, they must be important, could they be writing, messages, a stone ‘Khipu’ (Inca writing knots) or are they older than the Incas?

 

Interlocking stones at Ollantaytambo with nitches and notches.

 

Nitches, probably for display of 'Gold' artifacts.

Notches: possibly to leave part of the outer original stone surface intact in respect of the stone (surmised first in the book Cochineal Red by Hugh Thomson.

Wall surfaces may have been rendered and painted. Were these three dimensional ‘jigsaw’ stones rendered over with plaster? This then gives other meanings to the ‘hidden’ workmanship.

 

Does a chain of knowledge reside still in a none written down, verbal tradition?

 

Here and there written on modern walls is a motto; ama kkella – ama sua – ama llulla

This is the Inka teaching, it is the law of the Inkans and it means;-

 

              Don’t Be Lazy – Don’t be a Thief – Don’t be a Liar.

 

It’s a pretty good basis for a culture to thrive and sustain itself from within. The Indians are simple people with good common sense attitudes and this motto is all you need to follow to be a worthwhile person. They believe in the energy life force in the Earth, the Pachumama and reciprocal care; the Earth gives us what we need and we should care for it and others.  The Quechua speaking Indians and the Amara of Bolivia and other native tribes are a spiritually based nation. Their ways of being and their values provide for them, they have suffered and are humbled due to the vicitudes of the Spanish conquest. They have kept their society and their beliefs, which to them are certainties, they have done this whilst the rest of the world has progressed; they look happy and content, whilst the tourists around them rush about buying and filming. Do they have things to teach us?  A prophecy of theirs say's just that!

 

Many visitors are seeking spiritual knowledge in Latin America, in the 1960’s it was Afghanistan and India. They rarely found it. History is repeating these days, but with a geographic change. Such a quest is fraught with the same dangers of rip offs and seeking enlightenment through drugs (e.g. Ayahuasca). Its stupid for us to adopt their ways and try to become Indian shamans or attach to their description of their spiritual world as to be in their world we would have to become something that our own upbringing has not enabled us to cope with; we cannot become Peruvian Indians, nor can they become modern technological Westerners without loosing much of what they have. However we could appreciate and learn many of their sensible Earth caring ways and in return we could reciprocate by helping them with things they might need, and it would need to be done carefully as their society is fragile and could easily suffer from ‘absorption’ into ours. They do have things to teach us about, they could be our lifeboat, a link to a common understanding of our place our relationship and dependence upon the planet and a revival of mutual respect for others. Our society has loosened the bounds of respect for those with true knowledge. Our society is image based, we follow celebrity, fame gives respect (undesevedly) the advertisers tell us what we need, whilst politicians dupe us with their lies. The common sense Indian instantly sees these falsities whilst we are blind because of our immersion within it all, we could be helped  by an outside rational view.

 

Maybe its beginning; in Cornwall in the UK; here there is an experiment; The EDEN project. A rain forest environment has been created inside a science fiction looking building inside a worked out china clay quarry.

 

And Peruvian inspirational artists have painted pictures depicting the links between man, the vegetation and the Earth. In the summer of 2001 The Eden project hosted a visit by two Shamanic herbalists, Francisco Montes Shuna and Yolanda Panduro Baneo, these’ Vegitalistas’ painted pictures of the spirit lives of rainforest plants on a cliff face inside the massive Eden Tropical Dome.
