Chris Hedges: ‘We’ve decapitated more civilians than ISIS ever has’

Chris Hedges, in my view, is on the very short list of real journalists that remain in our world. His views of the US mainstream press and how it’s changed during his career, as well as the political and social reality of America is worth hearing.

Solving the Riddles of the Antikythera Mechanism, an Early Astronomical Calculator

Thank you, Graham.

There are many portals into our hidden history, showing how advanced humanity has been in its long-distant past. One of the most intriguing is  the Antikythera Mechanism, raised from an ancient shipwreck near Crete in 1901. I quote from this article:

The complex clocklike assembly of bronze gears and display dials predates other known examples of similar technology by more than 1,000 years. It accurately predicted lunar and solar eclipses, as well as solar, lunar and planetary positions.

For good measure, the mechanism also tracked the dates of the Olympic Games. Although it was not programmable in the modern sense, some have called it the first analog computer.

End of quote.

This article provides an update on research into this ancient mechanism, suggesting it dates back to 150-100BC, bringing forth in a sophisticated manner, knowledge we take to have been far more recently discovered.

I, for one, cannot wait for Graham Hancock’s update to “Fingerprints of the Gods” entitled “Magicians of the Gods” due out next year. Graham’s research is uncompromising.
