Have you thought about how things are baffling until we uncover the baffle?
Look at Easter Island, as an example. For many years people were amazed at the
statues in wonder how in the world could they get those huge boulders in place and
lined up? Also, what happen to the people on Easter Island? Where did they go?
It was very baffling.
In fact, it was very simple how they moved the boulders. All they did was rock
them. Or at least, in real life experiment, it was easily done. Have you ever
moved a heavy piece of furniture by yourself? What do you do? Some times you
push one corner forward a bit and then you push the other side corner a bit and
you keep doing that until you have that heavy piece of furniture where you want
The people on Easter Island probably starved themselves to death with their
religion in making those statues. They had to cut down trees to use as a
means to roll the boulders and perhaps use as a lever too. Once they carved
the boulder into a statue, they probably rolled and swayed back and forth the
statue into place. The trees were their main and perhaps only source of shelter,
food, etc. When there are trees, there are birds and other creatures, not to
mention fruit such as coconut. They had birds, eggs, fruit, etc.....all due to the
trees. BUT they used up all the trees and therefore diminished their shelter,
food supply, etc.
Some times things seem impossible until we realize the possibilities.
