I didn’t know this origin story, but it makes me happy on so many levels.
EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
This always bother’s me.
During the “Christian Dark Ages” in Europe the rest of the world didn’t just STOP TURNING and fall onto the wayside with them. One of the reasons Europe has such a quick recovery from basically bricking themselves scientifically in the head is BECAUSE the rest of the world just ignored them when they fell off the cultural map and kept on rolling along creating and inventing and advancing technology for the betterment of all humanity.
And then those European Christians, sick of killing each other and finally realizing they could live with their religion and the “dark magic of science” turned around and decided that they wanted what everyone else had.
And they wanted it now.
So they turned around and attacked the rest of the world to “Educate the Savages” (i.e beat them back into the stone age and steal all their shit.)
If it wasn’t for colonization we’d DEFINITELY have intergalactic space travel by now because instead of having like 4 or 5 countries with the money and ability to advance technology we’d have THE ENTIRETY OF THE WORLD working together on this stuff.
But nooooo Instead of actually traveling the world and being HELPFUL in retribution for ignorantly destroying their own culture and technology Europeans basically trolled around and attempted (and occasionally succeeded) mass genocide on every other continent on the planet.
And because we kind of continually refuse to acknowledge this fact, we remain ignorant to the fact that most “western” cultures are STILL FRIGGEN DOING IT. (Killing off other cultures that might compete with them unless they assimilate)
((Which I mean I can understand why. On some level we must culturally realize that the only way we got to where we were was by wiping out the people that came before us. So we’re most likely TERRIFIED of any other group gaining any kind of power because we KNOW what we’d do in their position. We don’t want them to do to us, what we’ve done to others)
