And then up the ladder of the earth I climbed
through the horrible thicket of the lost jungles to you, Machu Picchu.
Tall city of stones stacked up in steps,
at last a dwelling where what is earthly was not hidden under slumbering clothes.
In you, like two parallel lines,
the cradle of lightning and humanity rocking together in a thorny wind.
Mother of stone, spume of the condors.
Highest reef of the human dawn.
- Pablo Neruda, Poem to Machu Pichu
Machu Pichu is one of the greatest achievements of human architecture anywhere in the world.
The Incans are famous for their rope bridges. What we can't see when loking at Machu Pichu
is the various rope bridges that used to connect it to other points in the Andes around the city.
These bridges have long since disappeared. The Incans cut them when the
Spanish invaded Machu Pichu.
A secret bridge has been discovered recently that is being described as an alternative route of access to the sky city.
The road was used as trade route and to bring goods and services to the mountain top city. The true extent of the Incan Empire's
road network is not completely known, since the Spaniards, post conquest, either dug up the roads completely
in some areas, or allowed them to deteriorate and fall into ruin under iron-clad horses' hooves,
or the metal wheels of ox-carts.
Today, the secret bridge, known as the Inca Bridge, is one of the cities’ many entry points that
few people take the time or effort to explore. The bridge is made of simple planks of wood and
it is believed that these pieces of wood served in the way that drawbridges did in European castles –
to keep unwanted visitors or invaders out. The planks would be laid as a part of an entrance to the
city but if the inhabitants felt threatened by incomers, they would remove the huge planks
preventing the invaders from passing.
Machu Pichu has two other sites that most people don't realize are part of the Machu Pichu site - Wayna Pichu
and Huchuy Pichu. The peak of Wayna Picchu is 2,693 metres (8,835 ft) above sea level, or about 260 metres (850 ft) higher than Machu Picchu.
Here's the view from Wayna Pichu - which is the highest point and was used as a temple to the moon (whereas
the sun was worshipped at Machu Pichu.) The drop down is heart stopping.
Here's what the top of Wayna Pichu looks like.
There was no human sacrifice at Machu Pichu. The incans did not sacrifce animals or people. They sang and worshipped the
sun and moon. The illuminati made up all the stories about human sacrifice because they hate the Quechua people and
the Incan empire.
All the stories of human sacrifice come from the Spanish in the 1500s. The same spanish who performed Satanic
human sacrifices and were trying to discredit the Incans and take over their empire.
