Protected by the UNESCO since 1983, the Saksaywaman wall in the north of cusco in Peru remains a mystery for geologists, historians and archaeologists. Theories have been developed on how to transport the stones but not on how and why assemble perfectly cut megalith hard flint stones of 900 tons each at 3,701 meters of altitude into a wall, in a very humid and slippery area like northern Cusco. No official explanation has been expounded on the purpose of this structure. We still don’t know why the golden number phi Ф is used as a ratio reference between the three parts of the wall. Why so much effort?
