The so called experts want you to think the Ancients were dumb with little comunication. WRONG!
Here is a little history the don't want you to KNOW.
LOVE STORIES AND HISTORY
History and love stories repeat themselves though most of us are bound to miss the point every time. Take for example the fall of Troy, a good mix of
a love story and history. For centuries Troy was thought to be a fictional kingdom. However, Heinrich Schiemann, a self-educated German businessman
read Homer and was convinced of the fundamental truth found in Homer's stories (800 BC). In 1870 Heinrich began to excavate near the village of
Hissarlik in Asia Minor (Turkey) . There he found architectural remains in superposed layers and a wealth of objects made of stone, copper, silver,
and gold. This find quickly forced the Scholarly World to revise its conclusion about the Heroic age. Schiemann named the site "The City Priam"
named for Homer's: King of Troy. After Schiemann’s death, Wilhelm Dorpfeld continued Schiemann's work and between 1893 and 1894 found "The Sixth
Settlement.” This was contemporary with the "Mycenaean Epoch" of early Greece and was in turn called "Troy .”
A good-looking woman named Helen (the wife of Menelmaus, King of Sparta) got the Ancient world in to a twist almost 3100 years ago after she was
kidnapped: Menelmaus, Agamemnon and the Greek army went to Troy to free her. Even as the siege ensued, another woman waited in her palace, back at
Mycennae in Greece for word of the battle. Her name was Clytemnestra, sister in-law to Helen and the unfaithful wife of Agamemnon the Commander of the
Greek forces. Agamemnon had aggravated the problems with Troy by stealing Chryemneis , the daughter of one of the priests of Troy.
Clytemnestra was over 450 miles from Troy by land and 250 miles by a land-sea route. As she paced back and forth, she wondered how long must she wait
for news of the siege . If Caesar Augustus's (27 BC to 14 AD) Postal System had been available to her, it would have taken four and a half days to
make the trip from Troy, with an average speed of one hundred miles per day. If William F. “Buffalo Bill" Cody's Pony Express was doing the
delivery it would have taken three days, based on the best time from St. Joseph to Sacramento. The carrier pigeon message system developed by the
Arabs sometime between the 7th and the 9th century AD, would have taken two days if it came back at all. The square sailed ships of the time just
would not meet the new racing yacht specifications of today and if the winds were contrary it could have taken weeks: and if Odyssey was in charge
The funny thing is that Aeschylus the Greek Dramatist Said that Clytemnestra knew that day. But how could she know? Did space aliens tell her? NO! Was
she a clarvoincant? NO! An out of body experience? NO! Catoptromance (a magic Mirror) Yea! Now you're getting close.
THE XENOPHON'S HELLENICA
Xenophon (434-355 BC) an ancient Greek war hero and historian wrote a history of ancient Greece called Hellenica, which contains the phrase to
“Signal with a shield"
This is thought to refer to “reflecting sunlight” with a mirrored shield.” That shield was called an ASPAS the Ancients word for snakes The
messages were called “aspasmos” “to handle the snake”: yes they were what you would call snakes.
Aeschylus speaks of a system of dozens of "Beacons" on mountaintops and watchtowers from Troy to Mycennae and Clytemnestra’s palace. This
indicates a network of beacons running at light speed over 3,000 years ago and it was not the first of its kind. Such a system would not be instantly
useable. It would take time to build watchtowers and climb mountains to find line of sight locations and a code system would also have to be
developed. If this story has a hint of truth, there would have to be some remnants of that type of network and of the code system that was used. In
