Awesome! More new discoveries! MORE!
With my brightness turned down low on my phone, your profile picture looks like a man in a headdress holding a banjo.
That is all.
No I'm just kidding, theres more.
I read parts of the article. They found dozens of more cuneiform tablets, about 10cm on each side, which is pretty standard I think although there are
of course larger inscriptions like the various copies of the Code of Hammurabi (sp?)
What blows my mind, is that there are over a half a million tablets OFFICIALLY KNOWN, and only a tiny percentage, about 5% of them have been
translated. Sure, many of them are just as mundane as a grocery list. But still I'm sure their writing wasnt 95% inventory lists and ledgers. There
are still exciting things waiting to be translated, catalogued...
And that is just cuneiform tablets. There is a lot of stuff packed away that hasnt even been seen by more than a dozen or a half dozen people. If we
were not such a sick society, we would have more people working on it. At this rate, it will take hundreds of years to catalogue everything.
And meanwhile we are discovering more and more crates of stuff....
And meanwhile as the decades tick by, the stuff from TODAY will be interesting and be added to the hoarder like collection of human objects that we
simply cannot just throw away...
Just think of an archeologist in the 1800s. Hes sitting there looking at these ancient things. Now fast forward to Today, and, that very same
archeologists belongings are being examined by us as an interesting artifact from the past...
Now think of another 200+ years in the future... This was what they called a Smart Phone. They would hold these things in their hands for hours until
they got carpal tunnel. That was a strange 30 year period in human history. This was before InterMind was created, let alone Visual InterMind. People
used to do Everything with their hands. Their mind was just trapped inside their brain and their hands and voices were the only way they could really
interact with the outside world. Could you imagine? Eating with your hands? Gross right? Masturbating...wiping your butt...taking a shower, cleaning
clothes, cleaning the floor, cleaning the dishes, cleaning the car, ..all had to be done by hand. They had simple devices in the 2010s that could be
controlled by mental projection, but mostly just simple children's toys. Through the use of these, gradually advancing devices, the human race finally
began to exercise the mind in new ways, until finally, in the year 2112, the first examples of telekinetic powers with no assistance from technology
