The pyramids of the world...what do they mean?

There's so many pyramids in the world such as the Egyptian pyramids, the Mayan and Aztec pyramids. They are said to have been built around the same time by civilizations that had no communication with each other. Not only that, but the pyramids are amazingly complex. Even with modern day technology we still can't figure out how there were built. Could it have been an intelligent species that came to Earth and assisted us with building the pyramids? If so, then why did they bestow these incredible marvels of architecture?

I think that the basic idea behind all of the pyramids was to raise a monument to be closer to heaven (or the sun, originally, since sun worship was probably the root of all the religions of the world). I don't think that we were ever visited by a 'super race' of aliens. I think that the pyramids (and all other incredible ancient monuments) were built with huge amounts of human labour by societies which were much more focussed, organised and technologically advanced than we often give them credit for.

It was the previous high-tech civilization before a big war that ended around 12,000 years ago. Pyramids were part of a bigger network, though what that was exactly is unknown. It might have something to do with some kind of energy grid, but nothing is certain.
