I went yesterday to see this exhibition-http://www.kingtut.org/home
If you think about it, years ago they built these tombs under pyramids or carved them out of places like Valley of the Kings. All these artisans building and decorating the place, eventually laying the deceased Pharaohs and others into these chambers, which would not see the light of day for millennia.
Then one day, thousands of years in the distant future, they're discovered by this bizarre civilization that's learned to travel in space, split the atom and the DNA molecule, and send messages around the globe in mere seconds on a huge information web.
Put inside this big futuristic scanning machine that helps discover what their lives were like. It's something beyond the imagination of their time.
And what about this guy? He ends up keeling over on a glacier and becoming part of it...and thousands of years later he ends up under scrutiny by this future civilization.
Yeah...it makes you wonder what quantum chance or fate will deal any of us. Are any of us destined to end up in a lab in the 41st century?
