The Standard Model of particle physics is complex, but the preceding presentation is largely adequate for this essay�s purpose, while it can be helpful to be aware that the physics behind FE and antigravity technologies will probably render the Standard Model obsolete.� If FE, antigravity, and related technologies finally come in from the shadows, the elusive Unified Field may come with them, and the Unified Field might well be consciousness, which will help unite the scientist and the mystic, and that field may be divine in nature .� But that understanding is not necessary to relate the story that White Science tells today of how Earth developed from its initial state to today�s, when complex life is under siege by an ape that quickly spread across the planet like a cancer once it achieved the requisite intelligence, social organization, and technological prowess The Father of Us All: War and History, Ancient and Modern.

Children in Iroquois society, while taught the cultural heritage of their people and solidarity with the tribe, were also taught to be independent, not to submit to overbearing authority. They were taught equality in status and the sharing of possessions. The Iroquois did not use harsh punishment on children; they did not insist on early weaning or early toilet training, but gradually allowed the child to learn self-care The Assyrian Empire (World History Series). No Olmec or Olmec-influenced sacrificial artifacts have yet been discovered and there is no Olmec or Olmec-influenced artwork that unambiguously shows sacrificial victims (similar, for example, to the danzante figures of Monte Alban) or scenes of human sacrifice (such as can be seen in the famous ballcourt mural from El Tajin) The Fun Bits Of History You Don't Know About STONE AGE ANIMALS AND STONE AGE LIFE: Illustrated Fun Learning For Kids (History Hits Book 1). The other criti cal innovation was the modern steam engine, which was intimately related to coal.� Burgeoning coal mines quickly exhausted deposits above the water table and began digging deeply into the earth, and water in the mines became a great problem.� Not only were floods killing miners, but standing water made mines inoperable.� Romans pumped water from their mines ( water pumps may have been another Hellenic invention ). [781] � So did British mining operations, and around 1710, Thomas Newcomen combined the ideas of a French inventor and an English inventor to make the first industrial steam engine, to pump water from coal mines.� In a parallel case of using coal for smelting, the coal-fired Newcomen engine was common in mining by 1725 .� It was the first of its kind, primitive compared to later engines, and its spread was gradual.� James Watt was asked to fix a Newcomen engine in 1763 .� He eventually invented an improved version with a separate condenser that was first commercially installed in 1776. �The steam engine that powered the Industrial Revolution was thus born, although, as with coal, its spread was gradual, and wind and water power were competitive with coal for nearly a century.� The hydrocarbon-fueled steam engine was the key to the Industrial Revolution, in which the energy of ancient sunlight was exploited to generate previously unimaginable power.� A s team locomotive of 1850 roaring through the English countryside would have been inconceivable to an English peasant of 1500.� From a half-million years to 50 thousand years to 10 thousand years to less than five hundred years, the duration of each Epochal Event continued to shrink as levels of energy use increased dramatically and eventually nearly geometrically with each event.� As with the pre vious Epochal Events ( 1, 2, 3 ), imagine an English peasant of 1500 being placed in the midst of London in 2014, or visiting today's average American home.� The only metal in an English home of 1500 might have been some tools and eating utensils.� Wood and wool were the primary materials in an English home. �Some metals of the modern world would be vaguely familiar, but plastic would be unrecognizable.� English peasants� homes had thatched roofs, dirt floors, no plumbing, and people rarely bathed.� Glass windows only existed in rich homes, which were built like fortresses.� London was a walled city in 1500, and nobody went outside after dark if they valued their lives.� Sewers did not yet exist, and violence and capital punishment were common.� In England in 1500, only 1% of women were literate and only 10% of men.� About half of all people died before adulthood, and if they survived that long, they could expect to live into their early 60s if they were lucky.� Few made it to 70.� Only rich people were fat.� Strangers roaming the countryside could legally be enslaved.� Modern appliances and machines would all be incomprehensible, and all electronic devices would seem magical.� How much of a modern TV show would be understandable?� Cars, trains, airplanes, and rockets would be mind-boggling.� By 1500, news would have filtered into learned circles that Spain discovered some Atlantic islands, but nobody yet suspected that new continents had been discovered.� The telescope would not be invented for another century, Earth was seen as the center of the universe, and the concept of a galaxy did not really exist .� Imagine trying to explain the Apollo moon landings to that peasant, if the peasant did not regard it as some fairy tale (many people today regard it as a fairy tale ).� Could an English peasant from 1500 dropped into 2014 London have ever adapted Introduction to Contemporary Civilization a Syllabus?

Those three chemicals �deteriorate" into water and oxygen.
