Product Description

This book details sixty-four ways in which earlier, forgotten science and technology are superior to our own . . . today.

These are not merely ancient secrets—but knowledge way ahead of the twenty-first century. You will learn of secret formulas that could revolutionize modern aviation, construction, and medicine—advanced secrets our world once knew, and has forgotten. Discover how some geniuses of antiquity soared into inventions and plucked knowledge that the twenty-first century is just beginning to nudge. You may well ask, what else did they know, that we don't? Art techniques which we cannot copy, super micro technology, sub-ocean tunneling, invisibility, time viewing devices, lamps that never go out—WHAT NEXT???
