This thread was kinda inspired by smyleegrl thread on evidence of ancient civilizations but is also something I have been thinking about for a long
time. I was thinking if you knew a cataclysmic event was coming and you wanted to preserve knowledge for those who would survive how would you do it,
also where would you put it?
Firstly there are only a few materials you could make it from. If you made it from gold people in the future might not understand it and melt it down
instead. Also how would you make sure people would understand it, what language would you write it in and how would you insure they would be able to
I came to the conclusion that it could not be made of a precious metal because people would probably melt it down before they got time to decode
Lets go one step further lets suppose that the knowledge you wanted to preserve was also the knowledge that destroyed your world. You would want to
make sure that it could only be found when mankind had developed enough not to make the same mistake.
I basically came to the conclusion that I would bury it down very very deep in the earth with some kind of energy beacon that only a technologically
developed peoples could detect, I might sink it into the deepest ocean or even put this time capsule in orbit around the Earth.
For those who believe in ancient advanced civilizations this could also be a real possibility, if the government found it would they make it
You might also want to think about that, how would you make sure that when your time capsule was eventually discovered that the knowledge and
existence of it would not be kept in the hands of the few or that only spiritually developed people could understand the knowledge contained in
it...its actually an extremely difficult task once you take all these factors into consideration.
