Yes it makes perfect sense that they had previously created electron microscopes and a standard model of nuclear interactions on an atomic level. Not
to mention the the complex systems of calculus and architecture they must have had while living in stone / clay homes. Who would have guessed they had
already discovered integrated circuitry while they hunted for food in their vehicles which surely had been developed if they had the ability to create
Who needs Archaeology right?
You're not wrong but I don't believe you're fully correct either.
We have to take into account the intensity of going back 10,000 years, then we have to take into the account of going back 50,000 years. Who's to say
that there wasn't a different perceptual way of connecting things that made sense? It seems ludicrous but it's far from it when it comes to the
sheer number of possibilities. So e=mc2? Could that not have been known before? Could there have been a better understanding of string theory or
anti-matter? Possibly! Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. To that I say, we're here. We made it passed that ice age, we
What was destroyed then? What was destroyed even further in the past!?
To look at it from a more aerial approach of thinking, places and things like the Great Pyramids, Teotihuacan, Machu Picchu, Nazca... designed to
withstand time, and withstand they did. I like to look at the apocalypse theory in terms of us. If we were going to die out, and we knew it in
advance, whether it would happen in say, 20-1000 years or whether we knew it would take us by surprise. We would probably
leave behind as much
as we could, and I'm not just talking about the seed vaults in Svalbard, I mean, we would definitely attempt to make large structures like the
pyramids to rival the pyramids.
We'd probably want the future, on this planet or off, to be aware that the pyramids were apart of our ancient history, and not directly their
history, unless we lived on, but even so, we'd probably try to rival the pyramids. Even when it comes down to it, what was
left behind is by
no means frail. Such sculpted relief and towering structures show us this. We would try to mimic or surpass this, and knowing us (as far as the ET
mystery goes), we would most likely leave behind some sort of name or humanoid and mathematics as a form of signature more or less.
Sort of gets my mind active then in the sense of the structures we have here and how the same approach might have been taken. Still, in my mind I
can't really accept the lack of signature and the mysterious qualities of all of these pyramids and strange things upon our planet. Is it wrong to
feel cheated when looking at Google Earth and seeing population, farming and business overwhelming the pyramids in Giza, China, etc. Are they looking
upon us and telling themselves? Well, that didn't work out as we had planned.
Too many stretches of short and long history have attempted to explain it all
My island is a giant old rock, with some of the oldest rocks on Earth. Each coast, each jagged peninsula and structure of rock is very transformed,
very dangerous and very old-looking. It bothers me that I can't see where this part of the puzzle once stood, and what apart of. I can only go back
as far as pangea and other theories and artwork will allow. The island, Newfoundland I am talking about, was by our human records at least, discovered
in the 11th century by a Viking named Leif Eriksson.
Then it was "officially" discovered in 1497 by a Italian explorer, Giovanni Caboto. While most of the island is old rock covered in moss and frail
trees, there's an essence of a lack of discovery on the island, though there are traces of the Martime, Mikmaq and Beothuk people here. As a child I
thought that the whole world was mapped out and discovered almost completely, nowadays I look back. Back at how limited my view was because of the
school I was at and the people who taught. They gave me my knowledge, and so did TV in a nut-shell. I broke from the bounds a few years ago, and since
education has taken a thrilling turn, instead of feeling so forced and systematic.
Clearly it's in us, as a people to reach a point of spear-heads and stone/copper tools. To develop things like hair combs, art, things that survive
by intention, others by mistake. Still, even these semi-recent people, it's hard to find many traces. To survive in the day, to sleep at night. To
marvel at the sky, something unhindered by street light and pollution. It must have looked better than any IMAX theatre today. I'm envious of some of
