Could this lack of interest be the 'industrialisation' of science ? It is rather hard to assign something nebulous, and 'out there' a description. As a child I voraciously devoured any and everything about Peru, South America in general, especially the Mayans, from the old books.It came from having a recurring dream way before I went to school.I was SO frustrated that I hadn't yet been taught to read, and had to wait.
The first translation of Quetzalcoatl I learned was ' The Bird that dies in Captivity'. Giving the unseen forces names has somehow morphed them into 'Gods' as we think of them nowadays I suggest. Endless background debates which have little to do with the actual force they are, and how they act, react and interplay ? Being named has anthropomorphised them.The rituals created to explain them to everyone viewed in hindsight as 'religious'. The buildings painstakingly built to demonstrate, as a living reference and memory, the sacred geometry of the Cosmos, and on view for everyone, just coincidences.
It flipped to the Great God Microscope and the Temple to the Laboratory. 3D in other words.
The State of Time and Linear Time work in partnership sometimes IMO. Time allows things to exist, or not exist, linear time merely lets things evolve relative to where they are, like the State of Time's little helper.
We keep getting told we are in World Reset position now. Unfortunately if a manmade creation and enforced I just see mayhem around the corner. Hiding from Quantum Creation Force effects won't make them go away.
It just won't 'Sit Right'..as I said I am no scientist..:)
