Imagine what we could have learned if the library at Alexanderia hadn't burned down.

It is tragic, what must have been lost. If you think about it long enough, you will frighten yourself to reflect on how civilization hangs on a very thin thread.

"If you think about it long enough, you will frighten yourself to reflect on how civilization hangs on a very thin thread."

I'm an anthropology 'catastrophist,' I know what you mean. In 44BC there was a worldwide (mild) catastrophe recorded by tree rings. I wonder if the loss of this instrument is related to that time?

And somewhere someone in HR wants to know why they can't get the latest version of Office to run on it.
