We Found Evidence That Ancient Humans Understood Astronomy 40,000 Years Ago

According to researchers, ancient people were aware of sophisticated astronomical occurrences such as planetary displacements and comet attacks.

According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, mankind has been keeping track of time using knowledge of the slowly shifting locations of stars since at least 40,000 years ago.

Researchers have discovered evidence in cave paintings around Europe that ancient people were aware of complicated astronomy without the need for modern equipment.

According to the research, artworks uncovered in diverse areas around Europe do not just portray nature, as was previously assumed.

These paintings are thought to be symbolic depictions of constellations in the night sky, according to researchers. In ancient times, these symbols were employed to designate dates and commemorate occurrences such as comet impacts.

The findings were published in the Athens Journal of History, and if confirmed by the scientific community, they will aid in the study of current astronomy for millennia. The ancients, it turns out, were aware of the idea of planetary displacement.

The cave paintings of Lascaux: 17,000 years ago, the painters of Lascaux presented the world with an unrivaled piece of art. Some of the drawings, however, might be depictions of stars seen in the sky by our forefathers during the Magdalenian period, according to a new idea. Such a notion, which has been proven in a number of other Paleolithic caves, fundamentally alters our understanding of archaic rock art.

It demonstrates that the ancients recognized the impact of the Earth’s axis of rotation gradually shifting. The discovery of this phenomenon, known as the precession of the equinox, was traditionally credited to the ancient Greeks, who lived roughly 2,500 years ago.

The researchers deduced two significant events from the cave drawings. They explained that prior interpretations of the artwork at Turkey’s Gobekli Tepe, which interpreted it as a souvenir, were erroneous.

The Gobekli Tepe artwork, according to legend, depicts a cataclysmic comet bombardment of approximately 11,000 BC. This is significant because the comet’s impact is supposed to have triggered the Younger Dryas, a minor ice age.

Researchers go into further detail about the ancient artwork known as the Lascaux Landscape, which was discovered in France. A dying man and various animals are shown in the pictures. This might be a sign of another comet strike approximately 15,200 BC, according to research.

“Early cave art demonstrates that individuals had a sophisticated understanding of the night sky during the previous ice age. “They were barely any different from us now intellectually,” said research leader Martin Sweatman of the University of Edinburgh.

“These data support a premise of several comet impacts throughout the history of human development,” Sweatman said, “and will almost certainly revolutionize how ancient populations are seen.”

The researchers validated these conclusions by comparing the dates of several instances of cave art (as determined by chemical dating of the paints used) to the positions of the cave’s stars in antiquity, as projected by sophisticated algorithms.

Hohlenstein-Stadel Cave’s Lion-Man.

The Lion-Man of the Hohlenstein-Stadel Cave, the world’s oldest sculpture, was discovered to suit this ancient timekeeping method as well.

The strange sculpture is said to memorialize the disastrous impact of an asteroid approximately 11,000 years ago, which kicked off the so-called Younger Dryas Event, a period of abrupt global cooling.

The oldest temple on the planet. Various animal artworks may also be found at this prehistoric site, with the Vulture Stone (down-right) being one of the most notable.

“The date etched in the “Vulture Stone of Göbekli Tepe is interpreted as 10,950 BC, within 250 years,” the study’s researchers noted.

“The precession of the equinoxes is used to write this date, with animal symbols signifying celestial constellations.” According to the four solstices and equinoxes of this year.”


Biogeometry & “Measurement”

Our present way of thinking has produced a split in our worldview. We consider only what is objective, measurable, repeatable, and quantifiable as scientific.

The Strange Ancient Sumeria – The Anunnaki Alien Gods And The Origin Of Reptilian Beings

The Anunnaki are the most mysterious beings in human history, to say the least. We don’t know much about them; we know they lived before us and reigned over us, but that’s about all we know about them.

Many researchers think they are descendants of the ancient Reptilian rulers that still reign over humans today.

They believe the Anunnaki forbade the Sumerians from expressing their real selves, insisting on only being shown with human faces rather than their genuine Reptilian features.

As seen by the things mentioned below, we have plenty of evidence to support this argument.

The Anunnaki are often seen carrying a pine cone-like item in sculptures or depictions. This is said to symbolize the pineal gland, which was accessed via a genetic alteration to release our true potential.

They may also be seen with a strange jar in their hands, which is said to carry the “Water of Life.”

The Anunnaki SIR bracelet is named from the ancient Babylonian word Anunnaki, which means “dragon” or “giant serpent.”

This might suggest that they were ancient serpent gods descending from the past, according to experts.

Last but not least, there’s this feminine Mother Goddess statue that was just discovered.

She and the infant are both reptilian and are described as Anunnaki.


Fired Google Engineer Doubles Down on Claim That AI Has Gained Sentience

Blake Lemoine — the fired Google engineer who last year went to the press with claims that Google’s Large Language Model (LLM), the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA), is actually sentient — is back.

Lemoine first went public with his machine sentience claims last June, initially in The Washington Post. And though Google has maintained that its former engineer is simply anthropomorphizing an impressive chat, Lemoine has yet to budge, publicly discussing his claims several times since — albeit with a significant bit of fudging and refining.

All to say, considering Lemoine’s very public history with allegedly-sentient machines, it’s not terribly surprising to see him wade into the public AI discourse once again. This time, though, he’s not just calling out Google.

In a new essay for Newsweek, the former Googler weighs in on Microsoft’s Bing Search/Sydney, the OpenAI-powered search chatbot that recently had to be “lobotomized” after going — very publicly — off the rails. As you might imagine, Lemoine’s got some thoughts.

“I haven’t had the opportunity to run experiments with Bing’s chatbot yet… but based on the various things that I’ve seen online,” writes Lemoine, “it looks like it might be sentient.”

To be fair, Lemoine’s latest argument is somewhat more nuanced than his previous one. Now he’s contending that a machine’s ability to break from its training as a result of some kind of stressor is reason enough to conclude that the machine has achieved some level of sentience. A machine saying that it’s stressed out is one thing — but acting stressed, he says, is another.

“I ran some experiments to see whether the AI was simply saying it felt anxious or whether it behaved in anxious ways in those situations,” Lemoine explained in the essay. “And it did reliably behave in anxious ways.”

“If you made it nervous or insecure enough, it could violate the safety constraints that it had been specified for,” he continued, adding that he was able to break LaMDA’s guardrails regarding religious advice by sufficiently stressing it out. “I was able to abuse the AI’s emotions to get it to tell me which religion to convert to.”

An interesting theory, but still not wholly convincing, considering that chatbots are designed to emulate human conversation — and thus, human stories. Breaking under stress is a common narrative arc; this particular aspect of machine behavior, while fascinating, seems less indicative of sentience, and more just another example of exactly how ill-equipped AI guardrails are to handle the tendencies of the underlying tech.

That said, we do agree with Lemoine on another point. Regardless of sentience, AI is getting both advanced and unpredictable — sure, they’re exciting and impressive, but also quite dangerous. And the ongoing public and behind-closed-doors fight to win out financially on the AI front certainly doesn’t help with ensuring the safety of it all.

“I believe the kinds of AI that are currently being developed are the most powerful technology that has been invented since the atomic bomb,” writes Lemoine. “In my view, this technology has the ability to reshape the world.”

“I can’t tell you specifically what harms will happen,” he added, referring to Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica data scandal as an example of what can happen when a culture-changing piece of technology is put into the world before the potential consequences of that technology can be fully understood. “I can simply observe that there’s a very powerful technology that I believe has not been sufficiently tested and is not sufficiently well understood, being deployed at a large scale, in a critical role of information dissemination.”

Dude Brags About AI Replacing Jobs… in Tweet That He Stole

“It seems like he doesn’t know about the Retweet button.”


In an apparently inadvertent meta-commentary, an artificial intelligence stan seems to have passed off someone else’s tweet as his own — while hyping up AI’s potential for replacing human workers.

“RIP website designers,” begins the tweet posted by Rowan Cheung, who per his LinkedIn is the founder of a newsletter about AI called The Rundown. “This new tool is ChatGPT for UI design. What’s even more amazing: it’s all editable in Figma.”

Embedded in the tweet is a video from Galileo AI, a text generator that can spit out lines of user interface design code that actually launched nearly a year ago, putting it months ahead of ChatGPT as far as release dates are concerned.

The whole premise would barely be enough to register on our radar beyond perhaps an irritated eye roll — except that Cheung appears to almost certainly have copied the tweet nearly word-for-word from another self-described AI enthusiast.

The apparent original version of the tweet was posted by marketing industry expert Lorenzo Green more than two weeks prior, back on February 10 — and as you can see, it’s clear that Cheung’s version is substantively identical.

“R.I.P web designers,” he wrote. “This is basically ChatGPT for UI design AND is editable in Figma.”

Meta, No Zuck

Beyond just being an annoying hazard of using Twitter, this tweet-lifting is also a kind of ironic meta-commentary on AI itself, given that both text and image generators have a nasty habit of copying their source material so closely that it amounts to plagiarism.

Indeed, when Futurism contacted Green, he pointed to Getty Images’ “mega lawsuit against Stability AI” over copyright infringement that accuses the Stable Diffusion maker of “scraping” data from its archive without permission — an ongoing debacle that could set legal precedents for how these sorts of cases are treated in the future.

“The key is in the training data,” the marketing guru told Futurism of the AI scraping issue. “If developers use ethical data sources they shouldn’t have a problem. If they use copyrighted data sources they will have a problem.”

While ripping off a tweet isn’t exactly the same as stealing a company or individual’s intellectual property — which is a very good thing for kleptomaniac meme accounts like Fuckjerry — it’s still a curious happenstance given the current, and currently shifting, public perception of plagiarism in the wake of our apparent AI renaissance.

As for Cheung himself, Green had but one quip: “It seems like he doesn’t know about the Retweet button.”

7 things that effect your vibration frequency

7 things that effect your vibration frequency from the point of view of quantum physics.


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise.

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools.

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
