Researchers at the design lab Matter Design, many of whom are from MIT, have discovered a way to move objects as heavy as a great white shark with your bare hands.

Interesting fact: In the middle of the 19th century, James Clerk Maxwell proposed using a great white shark as the standardized unit of mass. He suggested using the amount of water displaced by a badger as the standardized unit of volume.

This is good. I have several great white sharks I need to move this weekend, but I won't have help. Thanks for the tip.

So I was expecting some great profound insight but instead what I was blessed with is"rotating" . By moving items they mean rotating. Real profound.

Don't give MIT the credit, this guy figured this out (and even bigger feats) well over a decade ago!

Well they're behind. One man figured this out. 100 years ago. People forget their history. And recreate what they think has never been done without proper research. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coral_Castle

They used herds of wooly mammoths to move the stones.

I think ancient Britain with Stonehenge and Easter island with their large heads may have something to say about this claim!

Maybe building the pyramids was super simple.

No this is not the answer, nice try. How about explaining the temple of Baalbek Lebanon where there are multiple stones weighing 1000-1500tons... Just look at the temple foundation stones, all of them are enormous. They are not small irregular shapes with curved edges, the cut of the stone is rectangular, precise with geometric symmetry.
