OUT OF PLACE IN TIME AND SPACE Book
Inventions, Beliefs, and Artistic Anomalies that Were Impossibly Ahead of Their Time
There are many examples of technology and beliefs appearing decadesóeven centuriesóbefore they supposedly originated. The Apollo Program was outlined a century before it happened. A painting from the Middle Ages shows a flying toy helicopter. Weíve found ancient Greek computers and heard stories of Roman death rays. The Pacific Front of World War II was described 16 years before the war started. The existence and documentation of these and many other events and anomalies impossibly ahead of their time are beyond dispute. Showcased are: objects, beliefs, and practices from the present that show up in the past, long before they were supposedly invented; personal careers that appear to have been founded on knowledge of the future; Roman-era machines that were hundreds of years ahead of their time; UFOs, never officially documented in any time period, yet still showing up in medieval paintings. 6X9 P/B, 224 pp., Illus.
