Very often I wondered if by some possibility I ever traveled back in time, would I be able to recreate advanced or even simple modern day technology from raw elements? Or even have the skills and knowledge how to.
This project made me realize how much we depend on society, manufactured materials and even technology to obtain some knowledge. It makes me think how easily we can return to stone age affected by the chain reaction of some dramatic post apocalyptic scenario.
“Once upon a time, man learned to master fire; something no living creature had done before him. Man conquered the entire world. One day, he found a new fire. A fire so powerful, that it could never be extinguished. Man reveled in the thought that he now possessed the powers of the universe. Then in horror, he realized that his new fire could not only create, but also destroy. Not only could it burn on land, but inside all living creatures; inside his children, the animals, all crops. Man looked around for help, but found none. And so he built a burial chamber, deep in the bowels of the Earth; a hiding place, for the fire to burn, into eternity.”
