That's terrific. All of that is fascinating to me, too. We know relatively little about ancient civilizations and the events that actually happened in the distant past and are learning more every year. There are (or at least used to be) a lot of history buffs on exscn besides me, too.I read and watch videos on a variety of subjects - it is an area of interest. For instance - I have a lot of interest in what happened during the Younger Dryas. It's a big mystery. Places like Göbeklitepe are reported to be that old. There was a massive cataclysm that wiped out almost all living things over 100 lbs on the North American continent but no one is certain what caused it. Asteroid? The Carolina Bays were ( believed) to be caused at the same time - a theory is that an asteroid hit the ice sheet and massive ice berg sized ice boulders were blasted into suborbital trajectories and hit the eastern sea board, and in Nebraska. If you plot the axis of the oval shaped craters they point to Saginaw Bay in the great lakes.
The theory is that there was a civilization there - advanced enough to create all the megalithic structures left scattered around the globe. The cataclysm wiped them out and whoever survived was left with a stone age existence.
It's very interesting to me - as are a number of subjects. Right now I am interested in stem cell therapy. Particularly umbilical stem cells. I'd like to try it if I can find a place that has some semblance of ethics and won't inject me with dead cellular material. Some people get off on going to Vegas and doing whatever they do there. To each his own.
You don't have to answer of course if this is too private, but is stem cell therapy just a random interest, or do you have a health issue motivating you ? It's pretty cutting edge, but the risks increase significantly with age, too.
I also like nanotechnology (though it scares me, it really does) and all the new advances in neuroscience and neurosurgery. Biology and anatomy have always fascinated me. And animals. Animals are the best. <3
