I watched this first documentary some time ago and found it absolutely fascinating. I think this is the perfect thing to share with all you ATSers
and with my new found ability to be able to in-bed videos that is exactly what I intend to do.
I think its remarkable the level of technical know how the ancients had and what is presented in this documentary is probably just the tip of the
So it appears we had this technology for some time but unfortunately was only privy to a select few. The understanding of physical and mechanical
motion has changed little from what the ancients used to build these machines. Okay Let me post first Set of clips. Quite long but well worth the
time. If you can not watch all now be sure to save thread so you can go back to later, in my opinion its worth it.
Okay this second documentary is about the age old problem of Humans manipulating other humans.Also an excellent documentary and well worth the
In this case its getting them to be in awe or fear of god/s by use of technology and it seemed to of done the job.
Same applied then as it does now the temple/church is a business and the better the "miracles" the more came to worship therefore the more money was
The uneducated would of perceived these things as godlike or magical. During those times where only a hand full could read or write and the fear of
god was much over used, could you really blame them for swallowing this?
Try to watch as much as possible.If you cant watch all now then save for another time. Certainly worth it. Both Documentaries are.
This one is called Machines of the Gods
Ok I know that is a lot of video to get through but worth it. Let me know whether you enjoyed and your thoughts and opinions on the subject.
Enjoy, take care, regards
sorry 4 and 5 of machines of gods are wrong way round, no ones perfect Ok should of sorted that...

It does seem that more evidence is gradually starting to come out that levels of technology in the past were much higher than previously thought, the
antikythera mechanism in particular springs to mind here. Personally I like the theory that technology comes and goes in cycles, at least to an
extent. A lot of the evidence of our true history has been either destroyed forever, or locked away in the Vaticans vaults- we may never know the
truth, that is very saddening.
I will give the videos a watch now, thanks for uploading!
Yes, there is so much evidence for advanced ancient technology it seems that the mainstream can no longer ignore it. What I would give to have access
to the Vatican Vaults. Alas this will not be possible so will have to make do with what I have. Enjoy the videos and do comment again when you have
finished to let me know your opinions they are greatly appreciated.
50 flags by this time tomorrow! They're talking about 'ancient' and spend their time talking about da Vinci who lived 500 years ago.
How come these 'ancient robots' aren't depicted, described or represented in the historical record? Why are wooden chariots a game-changing
technology if we had 'humanoid warriors?' Alexander the Great was a great military leader yet his armies were equipped with bronze weapons.
Ancient Greeks and Chinese had conceived of steam-powered automata, but there's no evidence that they'd applied these notions to autonomous
mechanical soldiers. Likewise, Roman conquest is recorded by the Romans and their occupied nations and yet no contemporary records or historians felt
the need to describe robotic hardware?
Genghis Khan and Subatai make no reference to their opponents having robotic technology either.
These TV shows that present 'alternative histories' are actively engaging in the deliberate deception of their audience. They're lying for ratings
and ad-revenue. They don't care about the truth or facts.
Thank you for your comments. These shows do not really begin to scratch the surface of the technological know how the ancients possessed. Much
evidence gets lost over time, either naturally or purposefully. All I can say is that it is a start in the right direction. Things need to be
investigated and evidence gathered. In the basement of the London History Museum for example there are literally 10s of tonnes of artefacts just
sitting there, think of all the other museums, not to mention what still lies buried. Who knows what further things will come to light. Piecing
together our true history is a challenge due to new evidence coming to light, yet unfortunately there seem to be some archaeologists in the
mainstream that for whatever reason refuse to accept this new evidence. Did you watch the second documentary ? If so ,what are your opinions on
Take care ,regards
S & F from me. I remember seeing this doc either last year (2010) or a few years back. It was an eye opener and fascinating then as it is now.
Thanks for bringing this back.
It really brings out the imagination knowing that we as humans have had technology as advanced as it was then, or as it has been portrayed in movies.
I guess most of that movie tech dealing with ancient civilizations having gearing mechanisms or intricate locks isn't so far fetched as we might once
I saw this before, it was a good documentary. Also I believe that Alexandria was the focus of so much because at the time it was well positioned as a
crossroads for trade and travel and being this it was able to attract peple of knowledge from across the area. Also I would truly love to see what
Alexandria's library had that we will never know about.
I agree Thanks for your comments.One example of objects in films that could be more real then originally thought comes to mind. It is the mechanical
owl portrayed in the likes of Jason and the Argonauts, if memory serves correctly. Now although this owl certainly would not be able to fly or be so
life like there is a strong possibility such a mechanical device existed.
I also think if such a machine existed it would of almost certainly been portrayed as a gift from the gods therefore elevating its status in Greek
mythology .Also the owl being a symbol of wisdom would fit in nicely as the designers surely did possess the wisdom to create such machines.
Take Care, Regards

These are extremely interesting (though long as you've stated) links and I hope you continue to share with us any other tidbits of wisdom and
interest that you find as I would be very excited to examine them. However, since you did mention in one of your posts about the more ancient
cultures perhaps being more "ignorant" than we are today, and thus, more in "awe" of Godlike powers which seemingly are just examples of more
advanced technology than was available to mankind on its own at the time. Please, please (only because my mother, God rest her soul, who was a
retired English teacher; highschool and college) do not write sentences containing the words "would of" or "could of" or "should of", though
they sound correct, you really are saying "would've, could've, should've" which are contractions for "would have",etc... I really hate to
sound so picky but in calling other cultures "ignorant" and subscribing to an "awe" factor, one should proof their (not "they're" or "there")
posting to lend it an air of educational validity. Just a pet peeve and I don't intend to injure any feelings. Keep up the great research and
Okay one will now speak and type proper English.... Would have...... The beauty about English and any other language is it is ever evolving... Go back
500 years and it would be difficult to understand. All English speaking countries have their own dialect and way to say things. I grant you, I should
of paid more attention while I was typing ...but hey such is life. Anyway English lesson over.... Glad you enjoyed the videos and welcome to ATS will
post more about different cultures and technology soon. As for now just got back from the pub and going to have a few more beers.
Take care and look forward to seeing some enlightening threads from you.
P.S Just to add. .....I never used the word ignorant .....If I did and I am mistaken ,please point that out

I'm going to be captain obvious here and state the obvious. Without electronic computers, you do not have a robot. You have a pre-recorded movement,
which is no different than a mill or a row boat, just most complex. The reason being is simple. Gears have a bit capacity of the minimum gear bit
number on the smallest gear. And I don't see any terabyte-worth gear bit size.
IE, no AI. No AI, no robot. Just a clockwork automaton.
