I like how Paul Gee points out the optical illusion of the 'regularity' of the 'pyramid':

Paul Gee
I wanted to see a topographical map of the hill – one which showed contours. What I would expect to see is the plan view of a pyramid: four equal triangular ‘pie slices’ at right angles separated by clearly defined ‘edges’

I found a map on the Internet. It did not show a perfect pyramid. It did not show a pyramid at all.



Certainly, the north face had clearly defined edges, but the angle they made was about 60 degrees when looked from above. This was not right for a pyramid. The angle should be 90 degrees. The edges of the east face made an angle of about 120 degrees.

What about the other faces?

Well, there were no other faces. According to the map the south and west sides of the ‘pyramid’ had no clearly defined sides, just the normal saddles, dips and slopes of a hill. Certainly one could imagine that faces were there, or argue that that they had been eroded away. But the fact was, the hill had just two triangular sides, and these sides were not in any sense identical.

The idea that the hill was a perfectly formed pyramid turned out to be an optical illusion. The hill appeared to be a pyramid if you looked from the right angle. The mind is very good at seeing what it wants to see. The mind creates the other sides in imagination.

I must admit to having felt sad when I saw my last thread of evidence disappearing. All the evidence seemed illusory. Something in me had wanted to believe that this was a pyramid. I wanted to believe that in this time of ecological crisis and confusion, we could find clues from the wisdom of our ancient ancestors.

But the only evidence to suggest that these hills were man-made came from a set of lab reports, which I have not been able to see, which supposedly claimed the conglomerate was manufactured; it was a form of ‘concrete’ which even modern methods could not replicate.
