This will seem off-topic, but serves to show how intelligent our Ancestors were!
A few years ago I began a research on the history of clothing
and when I stumbled on the following, I understood fully how economics can lead to stupid things.
This is a safety pin, made to hold pieces of clothing. Look how strong it looks, and mostly, look how there is a loop to contain the pressure of
And now, look what our brilliant minds have conceived for us, advanced modern man!
If we are being screwed by "our leaders", remember that this is only the tip of the iceberg...
If any of you were followers of the mini-series Rome, from a few years ago, you'll remember that one of the characters had to have part of his skull
removed and replaced with a metal plate.
And here, again to show that humans, confronted to a problem, will come up with the same ideas as solutions, well, when they consider practicality

Everything is ruled by a schizophrenic economy today, based on the works of a Beautiful Mind,
diagnosed with schizophrenia...
Over time however John begins to lose his grip on reality, eventually being institutionalized diagnosed with schizophrenia. As the depths of his
imaginary world are revealed, Nash withdraws from society and it's not until the 1970s that he makes his first foray back into the world of
academics, gradually returning to research and teaching. In 1994, John Nash was awarded the Nobel prize in Economics. Written by garykmcd
I always found that to be scary!
Ancient secrets are still secret, be it about mechanics or medicine or anything else you can think of. Today, we are served false, diluted
technologies, or they make it turn around and around.
I'd say that mostly, human progresses of the last centuries have been about profit, not the well being of the human race. That was only a collateral
happening. Back then, it served to threat the Elites and their court. It had to be efficient.
Great find, OP!
I love to see such discoveries!
