Computers Then and Now


Antikythera Mechanism


January 6, 2013

Were the ancient Greeks able to create the first analog computer designed to calculate astronomical positions and more? If you go to ancient alien theorists they would attribute the Antikythera Mechanism to star travelers who came here to guide our evolution ... then to return us to the stars and light when time ran out ... or the gears on the device stopped. Maybe ... but I would once again go with the theory that the hologram created the Antikythera Mechanism when the time was right and inserted it into the program.

The reason I am drawn to it now is this. I have always "seen" myself looking up at what looks like a round old submarine escape hatch that looks exactly like the Antikythera Mechanism. The souls in the submarine seemed to have been trapped forever. The door turns and in so doing unlocks the alleged "Hermetic Seals" that kept us trapped in the illusion of linear time. I've looked at photos of the Antikythera Mechanism many times, but today something clicked, most likely based on my experience one month ago in California, where I was shown the opening of the Hermetic Seals at this time. It's all about time, timing and the Time Keepers.

FYI - The world isn't ending, the illusion of time is and therefore reality.

Now let's consider who created the Antikythera Mechanism long before the human brain was allegedly advanced enough to do so. There had to be a character in the hologram, whose brain was "geared" to that end and more. In Friday's blog, we learn that some people, in every timeline, are born with the ability to go beyond what is developmentally the norm, creating major breakthroughs in science and technology. Their brains find equations fascinating and challenging, but always solvable. These people have always existed from Da Vinci to Harold and Caleb blogged about below. It's about processing and conceptualization that takes us to the next ...


Famed Roman Shipwreck Could Be Two   Discovery - January 6, 2013
A dive to the undersea cliff where a famous Roman shipwreck rests has turned up either evidence that the wreck is enormous - or a suggestion that, not one, but two sunken ships are resting off the Greek island of Antikythera. The Antikythera wreck is famed for the massive number of artifacts pulled from the site over the past century. First discovered in the early 1900s by local sponge divers, the wreck is most famous for the Antikythera mechanism, a complex bronze gear device used to calculate astronomical positions (and perhaps the timing of the Olympic games). The ship went down in the first century B.C.




Configuring Friday



January 3, 2013

Tonight's episode on Person of Interest - 2πR - dealt with Pi and Harold's description of how we all fit into the circle of life based on it. We meet Caleb, an 18 year old High School senior and computer genius, not a geek but tall, dark, and handsome, who has something in common with his substitute teacher, Harold. Caleb's "journey" is a "guilt trip" about the accidental death of his brother years before and how he moves beyond it with Harold's guidance. Like Harold, Caleb, makes one of the greatest computer discoveries of all time and is about to become the richest kid on the planet. I hope we get to see more of him in future episodes.

How did Caleb get to be that way? It certainly wasn't by meditating, doing energy work, healing, or anything else people try. His brain was programmed differently than ours and much like Harold's. It was all predestined - even his meeting with Harold when his "number" came up. Reality is a mathematical construct set in linear time through which we virtually, and vicariously, experience. Oh dear ... Am I repeating myself? ... sorry! Just a glitch in my programming. Delete!


Suicide

One more point now that readers have had time to watch the episode - Caleb contemplates suicide. This is not an uncommon theme in teen years as emotional problems peak at ages 19-20. This is when parents realize their child has a serious personality disorder, often bipolar with suicidal tendencies, sometimes psychosis. The teen's statement is simple, "What do I have to life for?" In today's society, many adults are so burned out, they too are turning to substance abuse and considering suicide when all seems lost and hopeless.


Violence and Education

These are not easy times. People going postal - shootings continuing - now a pattern. It's not the guns, but the insanity. If not a gun, there are other weapons, but guns follow what is in the media and video games. Fighting crime keeps changing along with technology and society. This can also be said of eduction and school systems - from pre-bipolar bullying to violence, drugs, sex and more.. I never went along with home schooling, but now with computers, scheduled curriculum and testing, I would say it's a good alternative.
