A Lego Computer First Created in Ancient Greece

This has to be one of the most amazing uses of Legos that I have ever seen. The Antikythera Mechanism is an ancient machine that was created over 2000 years ago in Greece. It laid buried until the yearly 1900s,  however it is only with the advent of imaging technology that it could  be studied properly. Until recently no one could see inside the mechanism or figure out what it was used for, even though theories abounded. Truly, there are things that the ancients understood about our universe that have been lost to time....




Meanwhile from another perspective, perhaps aspergers is not such a new disability after all...Just some food for thought, as they say...

Until next time,
