The Secret Behind Coral Castle Is. . . Antigravity?

What if I told you that, here in America (Florida, to be a little more precise), a man built a castle all on his own?  No, no, not a sand castle, though I’ve seen some pretty epic ones.  No, this man built a whole, entire castle of coral rock (oolitic limestone) which a little man of the name of Ed Leedskalnin built over the span of 28 years.

The whole place consists of 1,000 tons of stones, set up together without mortar with such precision that no light can be seen through the joints (this is somewhat reminiscent of some ancient megalithic structures).  The whole castle is a work of art and a long-lived one at that, for not even Hurricane Andrew (category 5 hurricane that blew over in 1992) was able to dislodge or shift a single stone.

But how did this man do it?  After all, we’re not talking about small tiny pieces of coral that one can place in a home aquarium.  These rocks average 27 tons with the largest one reaching 27 tons. 

People claim that Leedskalnin used some unknown technology involving levitation or antigravity. Others that he was able to manipulate his own chi (life energy) to lift those blocks up.  Some claimed that he sang the songs into place.

But what did the man himself say?

“I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids, and have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raise and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons!”

And it had something to do with celestial alignments, measurements, and electromagnetism. . .

Granted, no one was able to corroborate the fact, as he only worked at night.  But I have my own theory on that:  in truth, the man was the origin of the Hulk (aka Mr. Hyde), and that’s why he could only work at night!  I say, I rather like my hypothesis!
