“Those who represent an ideal beyond the comprehension of the masses must face the persecution of the unthinking multitude who are without that divine idealism which inspires progress and those rational faculties which unerringly sift truth from falsehood. The lot of the Initiate-Teacher is therefore almost invariably an unhappy one.
Pythagoras, crucified and his university burned; Hypatia, torn from her chariot and rended limb from limb; Jacques de Molay, whose memory survives the consuming flame; Savonarola, burned in the square of Florence; Galileo, forced to recant upon bended knee; Giordano Bruno, burned by the Inquisition; Roger Bacon, compelled to carry on his experiments in the secrecy of his cell and leave his knowledge hidden under cipher; Dante Alighieri, dying in exile from his beloved city; Francis Bacon, patient. under the burden of persecution; Cagliostro, the most vilified man of modern times–all this illustrious line bear unending witness of man’s inhumanity to man. The world has ever been prone to heap plaudits upon its fools and calumny upon its thinkers.
As is so often the case with genius, Pythagoras by his outspokenness incurred both political and personal enmity. Among those who came for initiation was one who, because Pythagoras refused to admit him, determined to destroy both the man and his philosophy. By means of false propaganda, this disgruntled one turned the minds of the common people against the philosopher. Without warning, a band of murderers descended upon the little group of buildings where the great teacher and his disciples dwelt, burned the structures and killed Pythagoras.”

This video scrutinizes a variety of ancient technologies by looking at artifacts, explaining the capability these items imply. Where did these out of place items come from? Would members of an advanced civilization, from say 10-15,000 years in the past, have simply stayed in one locale, or would they have moved out across the globe, taking their technology with them? Generally, we can suppose that the technology of highly advanced civilizations would tend to become widespread.

We will show many artifacts from antiquity which challenge our preconceptions about our predecessors’ technology and level of scientific knowledge. Specializing in the ancient Sumerian culture, Sumer’s advanced technology, and the evidence for ancient astronauts.
