The Terror Of The Ancient World

Sunday and a short history lesson…..

I know that sounds like a SciFi movie waiting for funding…..but not this time…..this post is about a people that held the ancient world hostage for decades…the mysterious Sea People.

Sea People?

Yes the Sea People…the very people that brought about the collapse of the Bronze Age…..a short video to help you understand just how ruthless these people were…..

The history of the Sea People has been masked by history for centuries….but now there is a new found interest….for me I have always had an interest since I have studied Middle East history and the history of conflict, something the Sea People were experts at carrying out.

“Sea Peoples” sort of sounds like the name for a band of Disney villains, or maybe something you would mail order from the back of a comic book in the 1960s. It doesn’t sound much like a fitting moniker for the mysterious group of people that helped bring the Bronze Age to its knees. Maybe if someone dropped the “s” at the end of the name, because seriously, “Sea Peoples” is what a 2-year-old would say while trying to announce the presence of humans on a beach in San Diego.

The Sea Peoples would probably be a bit miffed to learn that today, thousands of years after they terrorized the ancient world, almost no one remembers them. Worse, some people don’t think they really existed, and even worse, we think their name is kind of stupid. But the Sea Peoples did exist, and yes their name sounds kind of stupid but that doesn’t actually diminish the part where they literally destroyed civilization. So here’s the truth about the Sea Peoples, those dudes with the stupid name who you probably never heard of until exactly this moment.

These raiders were a scourge in the Bronze Age kinda like the Vikings in the Dark Ages were to Europe….

The Sea People and how they devastated the Ancient World…..

Then there is this for the lazy…..

My Sunday history lesson as well as a bit of archeology thrown in….

Another Sunday and another day in the sun with Sue and MoMo….the problem there is it is cloudy and rain likely.

We all remember the movie and failed series, Robocop, right?

Well the idea of a cyborg is getting more and more traction….but it is not a cop but soldiers for our battlefields.

The reality of real cyborg soldiers on the battlefield is closer than you think.

A new Pentagon report, “Cyborg Soldier 2050: Human/Machine Fusion and the Implications for the Future of the DoD,” goes into detail about four cyborg technologies that are “technically feasible by 2050 or earlier” — including eye enhancements for situational awareness, programmed muscle control, auditory enhancement, and “direct neural enhancement of the human brain for two-way data transfer.”

You read that right — the DoD wants to connect your brain to machines.

Carried out from September 2018 to August 2019, the study was conducted by a DoD Biotechnologies for Health and Human Performance Council group and released on Monday by the Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Chemical Biological Center.

What could possibly go wrong?

The U.S. military has ambitious plans to turn its soldiers into high-tech cyborg warriors by making them stronger, enhancing their senses, and wiring their brains to computers.

Pentagon brass thinks these cyborgs will make their way to the battlefield by 2050, Army Times reports. The Department of Defense just declassified a report from October that details its plans for “human/machine fusion,” revealing its bizarre plan to bring to life military tech that’s always been safely quarantined within the realm of science fiction.

The more I read the more I see the problems that could arise…..but will it be enough?

“In the next 30 years, you’re going to need to have to deal with these legal and ethical quandaries, and you’re not ready for it,” Peter Emanuel, an Army researcher and the lead author of a year-long DoD study, said.

In recent years, the medical community has made great strides in prosthetics and implants as technology has created new possibilities.

The US military envisions a future where in the next few decades, soldiers could become enhanced through ocular, auditory, muscular, and even neural augmentations, such as retinal overlays or neural implants that fuse man and machine in unprecedented ways.

All this is just scary….plus could make war more and more likely of never ending…..if the losses are minimum and the profits keep rolling……why stop a good thing?

Is this what is truly needed?
