I have no great claim to make about such tolerances. There are sharp angles, straight lines, polished surfaces, sharp inside corners, 80-100 tons solid granite boxes. The tolerances are mere icing on the cake. I see no logical way to account for those boxes having provenance in the 2nd millennium BC.

Haven't heard anyone say AEs couldn't carve soapstone. I hope you're not comparing carving soapstone to carving granite.

I have no idea, unlike your own far more arrogant position, apparently.

That's why we're discussing it in Mysteries.
