I do not claim to have any sort of special psychic powers or access to a source with psychic powers.
The historical basis for my story is the Colosus of Rhodes. The Colosus of Rhodes was a giant bronze statue in ancient Greece which served as the
inspiration of the Statue of Liberty. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
Centuries after ancient Greek civilization declined, the people or government of Rhodes sold the Colosus of Rhodes for scrap. I don't know what they
did with the money, but whatever it is they spent the money on it was probably not worth destroying a treasure.
The Colous of Rhodes was not the only national treasure to be destroyed. Most of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world have disappeared without a
trace. They were destroyed by marauders or allowed to decay into oblivion as the once great civilizations that created them went into decline.
If history repeats itself, the national treasures of the US are going to disappear as the American civilization goes into decline. They might get
sold for scrap, get destroyed by vandals, or just rot away.
