It seems whenever on those occasions I happen to find myself trying to examine some ancient historical context, what comes back at me time and again is just how much the ancients may indeed have been aware of (on their own I mean, without the help of UFO's), how much they may have actually known or how much they were able to accomplish by that knowledge - much of which that may have since, in turn, become lost to us somewhere down through the ages...and that generally we (in our instant-microwave existence) continue to blithely fail to comprehend the ancients themselves as anything but limited by the fact that they didn't have computers, modern science or that they had no social media, netflix or whatever. There's something refreshingly restorative and connective in being able to glimpse, now and again at least, that the "wisdom of the ancients" was often just that - wisdom. Heretofore unknown levels of ancient science that predate the establishment of the scientific method - always fascinating stuff. A shout out to Mr Deckert for bringing it to our attention.
BTW, the impact of quantum physics on our lives is growing beyond the bounds of electricity and the cosmos - even opening new fields of study of how the human body may actually work (quantum biomechanics). And incidentally, doctors now say that there appears to be an actual "music center" in the brain, located midway between the centers of auditory and speech.
Erik, I will definitely check out what Mr Bernstein has to say, thanks!
Nonoise, I, too, definitely had, while reading, the feeling of the giant clock!
