Apprently to make a point, one must start at the beginning. Granted, as you shall see in a moment, the wheel wasn't exactly the beginning, but for
most people, they like to use that as a starting point in history of when man actually started to roll along. (Pun Intended!). So, I will as well,
just to make the point that I referred to in the beginning of this post.
Here we have the thoughts on origins of the the wheel. Taken form HERE
Wheels are the archetype of a primitive, caveman-level technology. But in fact, they're so ingenious that it wasn't until 3500 B.C. that someone
invented them. By that time — it was the Bronze Age — humans were already casting metal alloys, constructing canals and sailboats, and even
designing harps and other complex musical instruments.
Hmmm, seems folks were pretty busy before the wheel ever came along. Who knew they needed a wheel?
Obviously someone did because eventually it came along. We shall call him Joe Caveman for now since we dont know his actual name. From reading below,
you will see what the actual tricky part of the wheel was what that bothered Joe so much.

The tricky thing about the wheel was not conceiving of a cylinder rolling on its edge. It was figuring out how to connect a stable, stationary
platform to that cylinder.
Hence the Axel.
Now I am not here to go on and on about the wheel, I have a different point.
Joe Caveman must have been a bit out of the norm. Imagine ol Joe in his cave trying to figure out this dilemma. I bet people were whispering behind
his back and the wife probably wasnt to happy with him making such a mess of the cave tinkering with his dilemma.
Again I qoute From HERE
The invention of the wheel was so challenging that it probably happened only once, in one place. However, from that place, it seems to have spread so
rapidly across Eurasia and the Middle East that experts cannot say for sure where it originated.
It probably only happened once they say. Good for Joe.He is the father of the wheel now. Does anyone know? Seems not except for maybe the neighbors or
townsfolk, or the wife if he even had one. It is apparent a lot of plagiarism happened though as it spread like wild fire. In any event, History was
made as we still see to this day.
Now what IF, the MSM was there to report on it? How would that have gone? What if he was a overnight sensation? Interviews, wined and dined, you know
the drill. What if in one interview he mentioned a book he wrote about how it all came about? How he struggled, how he tinkered through the night, how
he almost lost his marriage, his friends pretty much abandoned him? Now mind you this interview is traveling over the mountains and streams desserts
and kingdoms. So, now that the news has been able to travel far and wide, much quicker mind you because of the wheel, Utoh. A book he wrote he said?
Well, this is hogwash, all he is doing is trying to sell a book. We dont even have any proof he invented the wheel. Just hearsay. Wheels have been
around here for years now. What proof does he have and who is he to write a book? Just another shmo trying to make a few more baubles.
Blah.... Evidently it worked in a sense because we STILL dont really know who Joe caveman was.
Moving forward in time, Im guessing any Egyptian interview about how they built the pyramids and any book they may have mentioned that they wrote
about it didnt go so well either. We are still trying to figure that one out.
Not to be long winded, let us take a few more historical figures that were probably shunned. Columbus, Davin chi, Edison, Ben Franklin, Tesla. Most
were probably thought to be nuts by their peers, but, they wrote books to some extent. Odd, we now place importance on These books.
So, you may ask, where am I going with all this? Sometimes, a person of notable importance, or maybe not so much because they have been deemed a nut
case, but smart enough to write a book, may just actually have some real truths to say which they cant get all mentioned in their interviews, hence
they mention their book. The Book, that might actually have something to say in more detail of how they came across or about things.
Long and short here, to blow someone off because they mention their book in a interview without taking the time to Actually Read It Yourself is really
selling yourself short. Important facts may or not be made in the book, that point is somewhat irrelevant, but until one reads it, how can one
possibly consider themselves a expert on it to discuss it?
Books, like the wheel have been a very important part of our culture. The wheel is overlooked, yet used every day. The Book? Well, want to learn
something? Read a book yes?
We all know so well by now, many considered crack pots of the past by their own peers, are revered now as true pioneers to our present and
If you can, next time a person is interviewed on a subject that may concern you and they happen to mention their book, try not thinking about the fact
they are trying to make a book sale, but the fact they they may actually be trying to Teach or Show you something that they have noticed or learned
and took the time to Write about it.
I mention all this because of the Citizen Hearing on UFO Disclosure. I myself feel like I am on the precipice of the future being made before my very
eyes. I have taken the time to hear what the speakers have actually had to say thanks to Narcolepticbuddha who posted this thread earlier:
They provided the link to be able to listen to the actual speakers.
Yes, many have mentioned their books, and yes, many are dodgy according to ATS members. Regardless, the fact still remains the same. These people have
made it their life quest to get too the truth, one way or another. One cannot deny that there is at least smoke burning here. One cannot deny the
people speaking are basically pretty credible. Outlandish claims? Perhaps, but, we have the wheel now and we have ventured into space, and well gosh,
we have the internet. Not to mention so many other things that are starting to come online to "Make life easier."
Where there is smoke there is fire... where there is a dreamer, there is a book.......
