It is perhaps wise to question the accepted knowledge regarding our origins as well as our capacity for ingenuity with the advancement of our stupendous present-day champion called “Technology”.
It seems almost unfathomable to me how much technology has advanced since the end of World War Two in 1945. Industrial revolution indeed.
‘What magnificent progress we have made in only 66 years.’ I say to myself. It’s just a pity we cannot do the same with ourselves in terms of cultivating wisdom and resolving the many problems in human affairs.
What seems an incredible feat, there has somehow been a huge advancement in technology in the past 100 years or so, considering that the human race has been around an estimated 200,000 years (so what did we do in the previous 199,900 years?).
A couple of pertinent questions I now ask myself are:
‘How did Man gain this technological knowledge in such a short period of time, culminating with the birth of his crowning glory – the computer? – And why only in the last 100 years and not in the thousands of years previous?’
The following answers from three competing groups come to mind: The Conspiracy Theorists would scream out ‘Aliens!’ Whilst the Scientists would say ‘Evolution.’ And lastly, those with faith would obviously let out a most resounding cry of ‘God!!’
Although it could be wrong of me to question Man’s intelligence and ingenuity to produce such wonderful toys, it is also entirely possible that he found some help along the way. Ancient technology blueprints, perhaps? If so, this may have provided man with the catalyst towards him realising his technological dreams.
However, this is pure conjecture on my part, but the questions that now need to be asked are ‘Did ancient civilizations actually possess this technological knowledge? – and if yes – how?’
I will leave Jason Martell to try to answer these most intriguing of questions. Martell, a world-renowned researcher and lecturer specializing in the ancient Sumerian culture, gave an interesting lecture in 2007 where he speaks about ancient technology and mysterious knowledge possessed by civilizations at the time.
It covers topics on various ancient civilizations, who left for us to discover many unexplainable artifacts, paintings and devices which seem to depict technology and knowledge belonging to a more modern era – or even another planet (I could hear the conspiracy theorists cheer when I said that).
Although these civilizations existed 5,000 or more years ago they seem to communicate, through paintings hieroglyphs and carvings, evidence of astronauts, jet planes and UFOs – as well as many other weird and wonderful contraptions.
Were these actual eye-witness accounts, or just the fanciful imaginings of superstitious and god worshipping cultures?
We may never know.
So please watch the following interesting talk (in three parts) by Jason Martell, which has some good information that may or may not shed some light on the mysteries of ancient times.
