FREE PDF Ë BOOK Civilization One The World Is Not as You Thought it Was Á CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT ✓ This is the extraordinary story of how the uest to try to crack the mystery of the Megalithic Yard an ancient unit of linear measurement led to the discovery of compelling evideNything used today which forms the basis of both the Imperial and the Metric systems The ancient scientists understood the dimensions motions and relationships of the Earth Moon and Sun they measured the solar system and even understood how the speed of light was integrated into the movements of our planet The implications of these revelations go far beyond the fascination of discovering As stated earlier I found this book extremely difficult to readThe initial start regarding the Wall of History and everything that occurs before or after the creation of writing made it sound all the interesting Then was the introduction of what the authors and initial researchers called the Megalithic Rods Megalithic inches and Megalithic yards which are measurements supposedly used throughout prehistory in the construction of megalithic structures like Stonehenge Then there are short visits to ancient civilizations and their forms of measurements in lengths and volume and how they compare to the Megalithic ones And the imperial weights and measures And astronomic distances and the use of VenusSeriously I've read books on cosmology and astrophysics that were easier to understand and didn't have to repeatedly go back to the Megalithic measurements and how this progenitor culture is the basis of all measurements Admittedly the authors could be right but their book just didn't manage to convince me

Uthors show how this very precise unit of 82966656cm proven to have been used in the construction of thousands of megalithic structures in Britain and France was derived from observing the rate of the spin of the Earth based on a form of geometry that had 366 degrees to match the 366 rotations of the Earth in a year They reveal how this is part of an integrated system far advanced than a There is no way to easily explain the relationship between the modern meter imperial units and the circumference of the planet earth or how a supposedly primitive society knew and used knowledge of the shape and size of our world to establish a uniform measurement system one seemingly shared by the Minoan culture Sumer the old Indus valley culture and pre modern Japan A true eye opener albeit one written in a manner conducive to shuteye syndrome There must be a better way to write about this astonishing topic For masochists only

Civilization One The World Is Not as You Thought it WasThis is the extraordinary story of how the uest to try to crack the mystery of the Megalithic Yard an ancient unit of linear measurement led to the discovery of compelling evidence pointing to the existence of an unknown highly advanced culture which was the precursor to the earliest known civilizations such as the Sumerians and the Egyptians There must have been a Civilization One The a It was poorly written poorly researched and full of mistakes As a scientist I can say that several statements made were completely wrong The supposed precision of their measurements makes no sense and their understanding of uncertainty in measurements is seriously lacking Also the authors made the common mistake of assuming that something is related making calculations based on the assumption and then being surprised and amazed to see a relationship coming out of the calculations Of course the relationship is thereyou put it there to begin with
