Sure, I understand this. But This is why I say the civilization would have to be compressed in time and space. Otherwise all their artefacts couldn't have been destroyed. "Atlantis" might fit this but certainly no widespread culture.

There are fossilized spark plugs from the 1920's so there can certainly be any number of other such items.

I believe exactly this did occur but people don't accept my idea of a science based on logic and observation. I don't claim to know every possible type of science but it seems there should be a finite and small number of possibilities. Certainly metaphysics can vary. It seems any sort of technologically advanced science would necessarily be experimentally based. Not only the technology was lost in its entirety but so was the metaphysics.

I very much agree. I describe it as comparing all new knowledge not only to what is known but to the metaphysics and the definitions. But we aren't doing that but rather looking at the same thing from different knowledge sets. Engineers and scientists get one result and Egyptologists another.

I suppose I should just try to be patient since they are finally employing modern science at Giza so we will be getting answers to fundamental questions. Right now my most fundamental question is what lies at the other end of the passage marked by the heat anomaly.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
