OM & Barbelo (but all)

TLSOS is an interesting vid mainly for the things discussed but I suggest the conclusions drawn are merely unique but worthy speculation and opinion. I included the original (shorter version) for interest in the actual artefacts and certainly not any direct support for artificial stone. It is rather somewhat ridiculed .

I think you will find that Barbelo's point was that the conjecture offered is nonsensical! ????

Once upon a time long ago, most of us as kids played with plasticine?
The type of marks and inscription look indeed like a nail (or some such) has drawn on plasticine?.

It was not heated. It was a geopolymer concoction which solidified at ambient temperature. (imho)

What you are describing as large crystallisation. (I think?) is the appearance of dolomite (the banding)?.
The actual chemical components of such geopolymer concoction can be found on Davidovits web site
Video 4 - Deals with Egyptian pyramids (a very nerdy perhaps boring chemical vid) essentially a magnesium silicate component.

It is a pity this artefact is hidden and they say likely to be buried , because under electron microscope and Xray analysis, the chemical composition of a small sample, most likely , would prove man made geopolymer.


In regard to the pool of limestone splashed on the ground. That looks like one of Thanos's "wheel barrow whoopsies"!?
It seems to have been viscous ie a pool.

The vid at around 31 min mark our Russian friend mentions it all (other strange unexplained artefacts and large blocks with scoops ) and looks like softened stone but then tries to dismiss it as being the result of hammering. Clearly he has closed his mind to that possibility . I think a pity but hey geopolymer is also just opinion.
However given the amazing world leading development of technology that has led to heat resistant uses in high tech fighter aircraft, F1 cars, Superior floor slabs for high rise building , airport runways etc (many more) then if you watch and read enough of Davidovits, it is difficult to suggest he is just guessing! He has serious professional proven expertise.

End of rant
Cheers
