You know speaking of ketracel I am watching stargate sg1 and it's totally like startrek if picard was replaced by mguiver and data was a decent james spader impersonator.

Lol.

Anyway. Ya. 10000 bce there's tons of cool sites and artifacts and ppl were cooking in advanced ways. I doubt they where deep frying irradiated potatoes after a half a century of recent nuclear atmospheric testing. Let alone suicidally fucking with the van Allen belts a few times.

There's lots of novel new ways we are fucking up with our fruit loops and lattes. Which we weren't in 3000 BCE. Flat round or otherwise.

Ever notice how the bottfarms just aggressively post that it's swamp gas reflected from Venus or a spot light, while completely ignoring the acceleration and and sudden change of angular momentum.

Shit like that really makes me distrust everything. Especially the people with their trademarks all over everything.

You know what's crazy, the first "science fiction" story is supposed to be Frankenstein 1818.

I mean, some might argue the book of Enoc is the first science fiction from -8000 but the first "science fiction" story is 1818.

Which is just cool because that's about when science became a thing I guess.

But it's amazing, I wonder what like what was the SPARK that created all that science progress?

Like what was the first "science" moment? that lead to the first, science fiction, which led to the industrial revolution, and the information age etc.

12,000 years ago we invent surveying and nothing until 200 years ago where we suddenly progressed exponentially.

Like it's not like taking good notes was alien to us up until the 17th century, we have like specific directions from 12,000 years ago about how to build a temple like down to the embroideries.

It's kinda silly to me to believe the "reason we suddenly got better" was because "we started taking math and stuff seriously and shit"

Like what about fuckn Plato:? they were doing science methods back then..

Quote:
A Prayer for Archimedes
A long-lost text by the ancient Greek mathematician shows that he had begun to discover the principles of calculus.

Archimedes wrote his manuscript on a papyrus scroll 2,200 years ago. At an unknown later time, someone copied the text from papyrus to animal-skin parchment. Then, 700 years ago, a monk needed parchment for a new prayer book. He pulled the copy of Archimedes’ book off the shelf, cut the pages in half, rotated them 90 degrees, and scraped the surface to remove the ink, creating a palimpsest—fresh writing material made by clearing away older text. Then he wrote his prayers on the nearly-clean pages.

idk about that take, Jib. They are both SciFi but I never watched one thinking it was like the other. That gif you linked from the episode where a parasite takes over the host is similar I suppose.

Oh, before I forget... t-t-t-t-triple post-ost-ost! (but not mad)
