Ancient people created civilizations, without having electricity or fuel engines. Doesn't this mean that, with today's standards, we should all be happy and complete without having to work that much? Why isn't it happening?
I remember in my own childhood ( b.1971) there were no computers, no mobiles etc. No one seemed to miss them. Additionally, the belief was, technology would see us all working less and being more productive in 1/2 the time.Instead, all of our modern technology just allowed us to do 2 or
There are not any scientific achievements of any ancient civilisations that baffle scientists today. However, there are some things which impress scientists and engineers today that were produced by ancient societies, examples include: 1) Lycurgus Cup - Wikipedia: Roman dichroic glass (gold and silver nanoparticles in glass), that change colour depending
Except for for forensic exhumation, how old should a burial site be so it is not desecration of a grave; and somewhat fair game for a archeogical dig? And according to the laws of what civilization and culture such as scrapping sacred burial grounds
The rule of thumb is 100 years.100 years is considered the upper limit of ‘living memory' - so no-one who was around to see that person go in to the ground is around to see them come out again.Bare in mind that most archaeological work is done in advance of development. Burials are only exhumed

It is also a wise and educated idea to know how everything came to be. Everything that we
Should we go down the rabbit hole that promises to solve all the world's problems while simultaneously risking civilization as we know it?
//Should we go down the rabbit hole that promises to solve all the world's problems while simultaneously risking civilization as we know it?//.I don't know of any rabbit holes that can solve all the world's problems. I don't know of
In my opinion we have to learn more specifically about people of ancient civilizations.Technologically there is nothing in the ancient past that we couldn't really match, but the unparalleled determination, witness, courage, and sacrifice of great men in the past who pushed humankind forward despitting all the adversities and obstacles, is something
