Re: Everything We Didn't Know About Mummies

Eddie...regarding your observation regarding the implications of the 4th dynasty pharohs being far wealthier than we commonly believed....

The timeline for this precept is self-negating....Wealth operates in four dimensions and aggregates over time....orthodox chronology is such that there was simply not enough time to accumulate enough wealth to build up the economic, educational and societal infrastructure to support a public works project of that magnitude at that time.....could that assessment be wrong...of course it can....but that error in itself would likely be grounded in flaws in our current understanding of the orthodox timeline....

The value of this perspective, if any, is the neccessity to loosen our attachment to the orthodox timeline....and make room for additional analysis.....

I am a bit obsessed with this as, in my opinion, our current system of wealth administration, of which government is a subset, is based on the a flawed understanding of our cultural (and spiritual) identity....it may be time to engage in a reevaluation of our current system of darwinian economics....which has to this point produced conitiuing violence and inequity.....common sense tell us something is fundamentally wrong with this picture....question is what is wrong ????
