Spacebot, may I call you Sb? That...that was excellent.
Didn't computing come after
flight? Why wouldn't it in any other time line?
I seem to recall a Coptic text where some travelers came across a community devoted to building a flying machine. Of course they had to kill the folks
and destroy the machine as such an abomination would surely bring the wrath of the Almighty down upon them.
No. Flying machines were merely the tip of what was a global scientific culture. When the ice age hit, they blamed the scientific elite and
technologically advanced. Hmm, eerily familiar, isn't it?
Edit to add the Abydos time line came after the construction of the pyramids, yes? So, the first culture could already have been in decline before
Abydos...knowledge passed on from the north (Druids) temporarily boosted their abilities, hence
(grammer? Can I use hence in this manner?) the
pyramid project to preserve a standard of weights and measures. This does not imply that the Abydos hieroglyphs are meant to represent flying
machines, but are nevertheless easily interpreted by us as such due to our suspicion that there is more to man's ancient knowledge than we are
allowed to believe. This state of affairs has arisen from the monumental errors made in the last century by the established scientific community
regarding what should be defined as "primitive" and worse, "savage". "Primitive savages" turned out to be quite smart, actually.
