I agree in so much as high tech methods would be required to cut and mount the blocks. My question is why would builders, who were obviously capable of developing precision methods, go on to assemble the blocks using a totally illogical. inefficient and difficult building system.
The logical development of tools, equipment and methods must have preceded the construction.
I can only imagine that there must have been "method in their madness".
There must have been a pragmatic constraint, reason or motive for them to have deliberately chosen and adopted this incredibly difficult building and assembly technique.
