Antikythera Mechanism - documentary

Post by Spoonist » 2012-11-05 03:58pm

Just saw this recently and thought I'd share. Every time I'm reminded of this remarkable machine I'm fascinated by how advanced things the ancient civ's could create. To me it feels like a weird precursor which predicts the advancements ahead that we associate with more modern times.

Time travellers ahoy *laughs*
Lì ci sono chiese, macerie, moschee e questure, lì frontiere, prezzi inaccessibile e freddure
Lì paludi, minacce, cecchini coi fucili, documenti, file notturne e clandestini
Qui incontri, lotte, passi sincronizzati, colori, capannelli non autorizzati,
Uccelli migratori, reti, informazioni, piazze di Tutti i like pazze di passioni...

...La tranquillità è importante ma la libertà è tutto!
