There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch

Reading this on the new page without the preceding posts to reference what you're talking about made me laugh.

The Anunnaki came to Earth for Gold, they needed it to repair their Planet Niburi's atmosphere...they got tired of the labor to get the gold and created man as a slave to get the gold, this is why gold has been so important to mankind...it is in our gene's so to speak... :smoke:

Although we should ask, why such intelligent beings capable of interplanetary travelling should do the hard work themselves, in the 1st place, and not their inventive machines... Any thoughts?

I'm also puzzled that THEY seem to have so many different variety of machines to fly around in. So many people see different things. WHY?

Aliens coming to earth would be the end result of their enormous technological developments, presumably starting with wood / stone, the wheel, fossil fuels, nuclear technolgy etc. They might also have exceptionally highly developed health & safety and employment law regulations.
And once they'd got to a few of their nearby planets, they'd find it hard to justify missions to a planet hundreds of light years away, missions lasting fifty plus years before yeilding anything tangible.
I see insurmountable problems with the aliens' interplanetary travel program.

To record with my new Retro microphone, I need to hold the Mute button on it.
This is for future reference since it wasn't included in the manual and took me some time to figure it out.

They used some sort of heat gun as depicted in Sumerian cylinder seals possible a laser, but at the very least torch as we do today for part of the process…mining techniques have not changed much in centuries other than some added machinery. It has always been considered hard and dangerous work.

Regardless of who you are and how technically advanced you are one must somehow dig, turn rock into rubble extract ore and then smelt it.

Their technology may not have anything to do with ours, from most evidence available they utilize sound in order to do many of their functions such as moving large stones.

Look at how many different types of vehicles humans have, why would any other alien culture be different?

A recent development in human evolution is the overbite. People started getting overbites because they were eating with knife and fork, limiting use of teeth.

Fraktur, the-font-people-associate-with-German-texts, is a font I always associated with the Nazi regime. However, according to Wikipedia, Fraktur was banned by the Nazis in 1941 as being a "Jewish" font. But just look at the head of the letter Bormann sent to issue this prohibition of Fraktur use:
