Modern Day Stonehenge in Our Den

Our Stonehenge, Half of Original Height

Our son is just 26 months old, but he will soon be smarter than his Dad, no doubt.  As any parent can attest, adults get dumber by the second, and kids learn at a frightening pace.  Given these opposing IQ trajectories, it is no wonder that teenagers are all much smarter than their parents.  Anyway, this leads to the story of Stonehenge in our den.  As my wife took care of our other little ones yesterday, our son was hard at work on his project.  Without any encouragement from earthlings, he unloaded the bookshelf in the den and proceeded to construct a meticulously aligned tower o’ books.  The pictured tower is only half of its original height, as my wife was afraid the full-height tower (as tall as our boy himself) would fall over and hurt him.  After he went to bed, I inspected his creation.  With incredible precision, he had somehow gotten small books way down toward the bottom to balance much larger books above them.  I am certain there is some advanced explanation to the tower–alignment with the planets, time keeping with shadows cast by the sun, or communication with extraterrestrials, but I am too dumb to interpret it.
