Precisely. We might wish to be careful not to conflate the prerogatives and motivations of the ancients with our own. They don't necessarily seem to be thinking in terms of mass production or "an H block for every household" as it were.

Anywhere south of America we are probably talking about people who declined the use of the wheel for anything other than children's toys apparently, whatever anyone wishes to make of that - but a somewhat different perspective that ours on concepts such as "labor saving" seems implied, certainly.

There might also be reasons for a lack of uniformity in building blocks that some of us math or metrology nerds might shed light on, but it seems a pity in that respect that Stubel and Uhle's diagrams appear to be missing some key data points, or sometimes focus on incidental details like damage instead.
