A 64 ways in which an earlier, forgotten science and technology was superior to our own. Learn of secret formulas that could revolutionize modern aviation, construction and medicine – advanced secrets we once knew and have forgotten.
ARE WE MISSING SOMETHING FROM THE PAST?
You and I can learn from this experience – if we will just stop and think on the matter.
Our modern world is flattering itself that never before in the history of man has there been such a brainy lot of scientists as are with us now. In this 21st century we are so educated, so cultured, so advanced, that it may be tempting to think that our ancestors were by comparison bumbling cave men. Could this be a simple case of egotism, based on ignorance?
Yes, we do have wonderful technology today. And it is exploding at a rate that is breathtaking. But is this because we are more intelligent than our ancestors… or could there be another reason? I think most of us will realize, mankind is no more intelligent than he was a thousand years ago, but there is a factor in our favor: we have accumulated more technology. We have the accumulated knowledge of the
past upon which we can draw and make improvements.
That’s why we have so much. And now our accumulated knowledge is building exponentially. What an exciting time to be alive!
