The traceable evidence and paper trails was long ago intentionally destroyed. "Artifacts" that remained were simply given a generic part number base
non-descript NSN and are "lost" within millions of itemized parts.
They switched hands at least three times before ending up at places like Bell Labs, were "wild" and "fanciful" tall tales of origins and back
engineering would later be "leaked" by crackpot writers, who unwittingly were in some cases actually telling the truth while being convinced
themselves it was a fabrication all at the hands of the handlers who encouraged them to do the right ups in the first place.
This created the air of disbelief craftily aiding in the disinformation process that ultimately concealed the very truth in the open. All to be
discounted as a wild tale of fiction.
Mankind hacked and slashed each other for thousands of years in history and yet in a blink of an eye we went from steam power to nuclear power from
type setting machines to beaming command and control data to a robot on a distant planet. Hot air balloons to space crafts at the very edge of our
solar galaxy. The perplexing jump in computational power and ability of humans in the last even 75 years everything else in the known history of man
kind on this planet.
It is often the chance discovery that has lead to great leaps in innovation, but such a massive leap we have made in the last century alone is virtual
beyond the statistical probability if we look at the time frame in "technology" evolution dating back to cro-magnum (spl?) first use of tools and
1938-1942 The dawn of the era of technology, when was the first TV signal broadcast ?
to 1945 and we have remote guided missiles, aircraft, High Power microwave radar, jet aircraft and nuclear bombs, the 50's brought explosive growth
in electronic devices and micronization of mechanical devices and machinery.
A brief 10 years later we would be making our way to the moon.
But as of today 25 years ago I was riding my bike to the store or driving in moms car, watching TV and listening to the radio. And 25 years later I
have a cell phone which is just a wireless radio (walking talkie basically) sure it can browse the internet and receive more robust data, but the
principal is essentially the same.
What great leaps in last 25 years... as cultural changing as from the late 40's to mid 60's ???
The dramatic spike could have only rationally be caused by the discovery of a condensed form of "data" previously unknown to us at the time that
could be extrapolated and reverse engineered with amazing results.
Unless of course the humans in the 30's and 40's were by leaps and bounds vastly more intelligent then humans today.
