Greetings List:

I have been a List-lurker for several years and appreciate this
service. I learn much from the collected wisdom of the Listers
and their referrals to various sources but am troubled by what
seemed like omissions in the recent thread Great Debate About
Frequency Of ET Life.

I saw little reference to the records of the Vedas and
Upanishads, which, (at least in translation) read like science
fiction comic books but, as sacred literature, are unlikely to
be much less historic than, say the Old Testament or the Gnostic
Gospels. Then there are the Annukai references to spacefaring in
Sumer literature. Museum drawers may be deeper than we imagine.

The Antikythera Device Is a mechanical analog computer that
could predict the movements of the sun, moon, probably five
planets, and kept track of the moon's phases. It was recovered
from a Greek shipwreck in 1900 and was made in the 2nd century
BC! Modern technolgy did not accomplish this until the 15
century with the development of clockmaking. It is a fascinating
story:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism#Discovery

The point is that WE, our own western technology thread that we
are riding into the global future DID forget and lose a very
valuable and important technology and , as important, we did not
even know we had lost it. It was 1200 years to repeat the feat
and we are just now realizing the fact. What navigation would
have been saved, what history rewritten? What other technology
have we lost?

Pushing further back than the present era of 10,000 or so years
(since the end of the last ice age and the beginning of
"recorded" history) makes guessing their technology virtually
impossible. Unknown or barely remembered early myths of cultures
and peoples flooded by sea-rise and tsunami, earthquake, Mt
.Toba, Yellowstone, asteroid, or their own stupidity - all these
stories at least hint that the history of our technology is much
more complicated than we think.


Respectfully,

Dennis
