         this word means flea town.  it may seem odd that i speak of fleas so much, but like patina, much can be learned by a layman, from such things.
         i believe the inca came to peru circa 10,000 bce.  no doubt, readers accustomed to textbook history consider this date to be hoary with age, and exaggerated.  after i opened my mind to common sense and logic, it seems recent, when speaking of cultured man. 
         the land of peru is perhaps one of the oldest sites of human habitation still above the sea.  the inka of 10,000 bce, and the children of ophir of 25,000 bce were the newcomers. 
         the inca had a flea tax.  the poorest people were fully provided for by the benevolent inca administration, but had to contribute to society, so they had to fill a quill or thread with fleas. 
         little has been written on the quantity of fleas being an indicate of how long a site had been occupied by mankind, but it should be studied, as it can be a good relative indication of the antiquity of a site.  nobody knows how these fleas, which require clothed human hosts, could survive in an abandoned city, but they do, in a teeming multitude.  ive read capt stephens 'incidents of travel in the holy land', in which he reports laying down in a room of ancient building, and could hear and see the horde of fleas moving toward his room, rustling the leaves and grasses with their numbers. 
         sites teeming with fleas, and with heavy patina on carved stones are very ancient locales of humanity, and would be prime sites to excavate. 
         the quechua are probably of the red race.  cayce said they came south about the same time the atlantean refugees came to peru, circa 10,000 bce.  they may have centered in ecuador, with the sons of ophir.  the inca were surprised later to learn that the people of ecuador spoke quechua.  it must be that the inca had given up writing so long before that they forgot much of their own history.  the quipu may have recorded it, but nobody was actively reading the oldest achives of quipu.  our scholars had almost 500 years to learn to read quipu, but failed, and its too late now. 
         it would have been more wise to have built a gate and fortress across the narrow entry pass into the basin of cuzco, than the enormous walls of sacsayhuaman, which are of little military importance.  a small force could have kept the entire basin safe, with its fields and water supply. 
         bingham called the inca a 'brown race'.  they were white. 
         salapunco [sala=ruined punco=gate] shared the megalithic construction of ollantaytambo and sacsahuaman. 
         many ancient reports of mt serpents 25-30 ft remain unconfirmed. 
         trees could grow on the altiplano, but were over-harvested. 
         i get the idea that cultures before the inca were first to use terraces, as seen the lower urubamba valley. 
         charles weiner had heard of machu picchu in 1875 but was unable to reach it. 
         heller had discovered a small member of the kangaroo family in peru.  he also shot a dozen spectacled bears. 
         the pre-inca high culture may have extended from salapunco to deeper into the tropical region. 
         the cohoba narcotic is made from a tree found here, sniffed with a bifurcated tube. 
         bingham refers to the quechua language as quichua, same spoken in mexico.
