Do you honestly think we haven't had this and multiple other technologies since the 40s or even the 30s?
Where do you think some of the technology we have today came from? Microchips, fiber optics, etc...? You really think we invented it?
Technology is reinvented all of the time, it doesn't always take the same form, there are improvements over the years, maybe reinvented isn’t a
good word, perhaps I should say re-imagined.
Think of it this way, in ancient Greece they had vending machines that once your provided your offering to your god would dispense a pre-measured
drink of water, and it was a continuous system. Now these vending machines were used as proof of a god’s power in some cases and entertainment in
They had a system of pulleys and counterweights that would automatically open the door to temples at given intervals for the patrons of the
These technologies have been re-imagined with electronics these days, but still we think of them as modern conveniences although not so modern after
Now as far as microchips go, this is not some kind of magic technology that suddenly came out of no where, they are a composition of many different
semiconductors, resisters, capacitors, etc. I used to watch as my father built microprocessors by wire wrapping circuit boards. Yes we have come a
long way in that short amount of time, and it has to do with the technology of how microchips are made today, which allows for smaller and smaller
chipsets to be made. Basically the easiest way to describe the process is basically if you can imagine taking a picture of a compete circuit and
transferring that picture to a fully functioning circuit by printing it out with conductive ink. It is not exactly the process but it is the best I
can do without even getting more specific.
I would recommend researching a little into the history of electricity into the modern age, in order to get a better understanding on how those
Now I have discussed microchips and other technologies, but If you do enough digging around you can find out how pretty much all technologies came to
be and the incremental steps that have lead up to the things we have today. They did not magically just show up one day, many people have put in hard
work to bring us to the level of technology we are to day; to leave out their contributions would be a horrible short sighted thing to do.
I the advancements we have made have not lead us to the level of technology that we would need for antigravity, I would be very surprised, there are
many things that are discovered these days behind closed doors that the public does not have access to right away, but eventually there are usually
leaks and maybe we will be lucky enough for this tech to leak out in our lifetime, if in fact it is in use behind the afore mentioned closed doors.
