Robo sapiens 2003

"Ever since Isaac Asimov wrote his robot series of science fiction novels (though Czech writer Karel Capek coined the word first, in his 1920 play R. U. R.), people have looked at robots as both a threat and a blessing. The threat is that robots would be come conscious and act on their own volition; the blessing is that robots could accomplish many boring, repetitive and dangerous tasks for us."

Secrets of the Star Disc

"This is the extraordinary story of how a small metal disc is rewriting the epic saga of how civilisation first came to Europe, 3600 years ago.

"When grave robbers ransacked a Bronze Age tomb in Germany, they had no idea that they had unearthed the find of a lifetime. But they knew that it was worth selling. It was a small bronze disc of exquisite design. So they contacted the archaeologist Harald Meller, offering to sell it to him for £300,000.

"Meller went deep into the criminal underworld and, after a police sting, he got his disc. It depicted the sun, the moon and the stars. This suggested an understanding of the heavens greater than that of the first great civilisations, like Egypt. Could it possibly be real?

"After exhaustive tests, the disc was declared genuine. Then a team of crack scientists pieced together what it meant. What emerged is a true marvel.

"This disc, it seems, is a Bronze Age Bible, combining an advanced understanding of the stars with some of the most sophisticated religious imagery of the age. In intellectual achievement and also age, it surpasses anything yet found in Egypt or Greece. It seems that civilisation had already dawned in Europe."

A Sick Person... Un individu malade...

Someone in Montreal, Canada, visited every page of my blog yesterday and then contacted the video hosting sites (Google for the most part) to report most of the videos here as "illegal", thereby getting said hosts to remove the videos in question. The purpose of this action was obviously to sabotage this blog. Was it out of jealousy for this blog and another one of my blogs which was equally thoroughly visited by someone in Montreal, Canada? Whoever did that is a very, very sick person indeed. How petty, and how sad...

Quelqu'un à Montréal au canada a visité chaque page de mon blog hier, puis a contacté les sites d'hébergement des vidéos (principalement Google) pour déclarer les vidéos comme étant "illégales", obtenant ainsi que ces sites ôtent les vidéos en question. Le but était manifestement de sabotager mon blog. Est-ce par jalousie pour ce blog et un autre de mes blogs qui a aussi été visité de fond en comble par un visiteur de Montréal au Canada? Quiconque a fait cela est de toute évidence quelqu'un de profondément malade. Quelle petitesse, et combien triste...
