Barry Evans Field Notes from the future! Year: 13,968:
One of the mysteries of ancient civilizations, for me, is why it took so long for engineers of old to figure out the hydrosufflant biosynthesizer.
Maybe because only certain people knew about it, kept them and their knowledge to themselves, AND had assembled a veritable army of servants, whether willing, witting, wanting or who knows, to do an army's worth of manual labor? Building a simple land line telephone is as much of an impossibility to somebody raised on a remote island as it would be for somebody to build complex architecture involving very heavy physical activity. Not that there would be a NEED if even a WANT in the first place. Perhaps question why build the arch in the first place? Would you, if you could otherwise sustain yourself comfortably without such dramatic activity?
Good read and food for thought as always!
