Ancient North American cultures

Post by brothers » Sat Jul 13, 2019 6:22 pm

Long ago there were cliff dwellers somewhere in the Southwestern part of the US. Anthropologists and historians have speculated as to who they were and how did their culture operate. No mystery - I imagine my own family (and everyone else's family) a wife and one or more infants, toddlers, adolescents, etc. How often do we come and go from our dwelling? Dozens and scores of times every day, certainly. OK, you have one room, no bathroom, no food because you already ate it. You have no doors or lights other than sunshine. You have this extremely tall ladder that each and every single living person has to navigate incessantly. I call BS! This is simply a practical impossibility. Hey, where's the kid? Oh, I guess he or she just fell 80 feet to the canyon floor while I wasn't looking. Yesterday when grandma fell I thought the ladder might have been a little loose on that first rung. We probably should make a new ladder. How can anyone sober and in their right mind imagine families living in caves that require tall ladders? How stupid! Just my opinion. You may form your own. :shock:

After extensive research into the origins of this phenomenon I have uncovered the missing link:
Note - this was how they got up there, and I am convinced they used giant pillows on the ground for those wishing to exit the caves.

Gary, I suspect a lot of what folks conjecture about what ancient civilizations did is just that. But in the end we really don't know.

I do notice, to your point, these folks aren't around living that supposed way anymore. Who knows why, maybe a failed experiment etc.

Yes, this may have been a prison of sorts. You don't like it up here, there's the door!!!
