The photo above is of a man who created a stone structure that still puzzles architects, engineers and scientists today! Named Coral Castle, it was built by Edward Leedskalnin – a 5ft, 100lb immigrant from Latvia..who moved to Florida, USA in the 1920s.
Edward dropped out of school in the 4th grade and was not seen to be a very intelligent person…some people even thought that he was crazy! When he arrived in Florida, he would walk around poking at the soil, saying that he wanted good land but when farmers gave him real prime farming land, he would reject it.
You can see in the videos below that he knew what he was looking for – he knew what type of land he wanted and what type of material he was going to use to build his castle. He used blocks of limestone that were formed from coral. What is really amazing, and still puzzling to people today, is how precisely he could cut these stones…and how he could lift them up when they weighed several tonnes!!
Whenever people asked him, he’d just smile and say that he knew the ‘secret’. This secret is the same one that was apparently known to those who built the Egyptian pyramids and Stonehenge in England. To move these incredibly heavy objects, they would manipulate the magnetic properties of the objects…so that they would REPEL the Earth’s magnetic field and thereby lift off the ground.
There are 2 sets of videos below, both are the same but they come from different angles of documentary. I thought that I’d share them both with you..It is very, very interesting and it will make you think outside the box a little hehe
