There is something called the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus, which was originally discovered in 1862. When it was finally translated it was found to be
the details of 48 case studies of neuroscience. It is the first written record and mention of the word "brain", with accurate descriptions of
meneges, brain pulsations, cerebrospinal fluid and anterior fontanelle. (things even I don't know what the heck they are!) It is the most objective,
scientific and clear papyrus of 14 known medical papyrus to be discovered to date. It is estimated that it was written somewhere between 3000 and 2500
b.c. Each of the 48 case studies in it has a title, description of examination, diagnosis, prognosis and recommended treatment.
Who would have thought that the Egyptians were conducting this type of research during their time period? Amazing information, if you ask me.
Which brings me to another topic. If ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians were so advanced in their time, why is it that we are not light
years ahead of them now? Are we holding something back?
