Human beings are currently the only intelligent civilization on the earth. Speaking of human history, it may take millions of years. Millions of years ago, the ancient apes, the primitive ancestors of mankind, embarked on the path of intelligent evolution. After a long period of evolution, they finally reached the stage of Homo sapiens.
Homo sapiens are the direct ancestors of modern humans. They have survived about 70,000 years ago. Homo sapiens have made continuous efforts to travel all over the world and formed primitive human civilization more than 5,000 years ago. Seeing this, I believe many friends also understand that although the history of mankind is millions of years, the time to truly form civilization is not long, only about 5,000 years.
In these 5,000 years of civilization, the time to truly lead mankind to achieve a leap is actually very short, only about a few hundred years, that is, the period of time when mankind has embarked on the industrial road. Hundreds of years ago, human civilization finally embarked on the road of science and technology and ushered in a new era. Before that, although human civilization had been changing dynasties over the past 5,000 years, the strength of civilization had not made much progress. , Is still the era of handicraft industry.
The power of science and technology is undoubtedly powerful. With its help, human civilization has made leaps and bounds, not only making people’s lives continue to undergo tremendous changes, but also allowing humans to step out of the earth and begin to explore the universe. Human ancestors 10,000 years ago would never have imagined that today’s human civilization would be like this.
If primitive people from 10,000 years ago traveled to modern times, they would probably think that they came to the world of gods. Because in the eyes of the ancients, all the technological civilizations that appear in modern society can only be expressed by miracles. From this we can also see how important technology is to the development of a civilization.
It is precisely to see the power of science and technology that it has allowed us to achieve our present achievements in just a few hundred years. Therefore, many people are full of expectations for the future of mankind. With the development speed of mankind’s current science and technology, we can In ten thousand years of development, humans are estimated to be incredibly powerful.
This is true in theory. I believe my friends know something about the scientific and technological development of mankind in the past 100 years. Maybe this kind of change hasn’t been shocking for young people, but if you ask some hundred-year-old long-lived people, what has been the deepest feeling in the past hundred years? I believe that most elderly people will answer, that the development of science and technology is too fast, it is incredible.
It took us a hundred years to realize the foundation of various basic scientific theories, such as the theory of relativity, the mass-energy equation, and so on. Under the guidance of basic scientific theories, mankind has achieved breakthroughs in various fields. We began to explore the quantum microcosm. Mankind landed on the moon and probes landed on Mars. Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, the farthest mankind has flown, stepped out of the insolation layer and entered the interstellar space.
These are part of the achievements that mankind has achieved in just a hundred years, and all of these are brought to us by technology. Therefore, as long as human beings continue to develop, the technological strength in ten thousand years is beyond our imagination. Maybe at that time, human beings were already interstellar civilization, with living planets all over the galaxy, and we were even able to go out of the galaxy to explore other galaxies.
All this seems to be very beautiful, so in 10,000 years, will human technology be more advanced than it is now? The above-mentioned beautiful vision is only theoretical. However, in the process of development, there may be too many changes, so scientists also doubt that human beings are more advanced in science and technology in ten thousand years than they are now.
Why do scientists have doubts? Could it be that 10,000 years later, human technology is not as good as it is now? This possibility really exists. I believe that many friends have heard of some of Einstein’s predictions. Among these predictions, one of them is about the future destiny of mankind. Einstein’s original words are this: “I don’t know what weapons were used in the Third World War, but I know that the weapons used in the Fourth World War are stones.”
What does this prophecy show? It actually tells us that once the third world war of mankind breaks out, it will eventually evolve into a nuclear war, and this terrifying weapon of destruction is enough to completely destroy human science and technology civilization, and finally regress to primitive civilization.
So how high is the probability of a future nuclear war for mankind? Some friends may say that all countries in the world know that such weapons cannot be used casually. Even if a world war breaks out in the future, everyone will be very restrained from using nuclear weapons.
This sentence is correct. Everyone knows the terrible consequences of the outbreak of nuclear weapons, and they will not be used in the early and mid-terms of the war. But when the war has become fierce, and when a country is alive and dead, who will care if it will destroy mankind? War is so cruel, and in many cases it makes people irrational.
Therefore, once World War III breaks out, the probability that it will eventually evolve into a nuclear war is very high. Will a new world war break out? This is hard to say, but judging from the civilization history of mankind for more than 5,000 years, mankind is actually a very combative civilization. From ancient times to the present, wars of all sizes have never ceased, even in the modern era of peace, great wars. No, but some small frictions and small wars have never stopped.
Human civilization itself is not a completely unified civilization. There are more than 200 countries, large and small, on the earth. It is very normal for wars to occur for resources and territory. With the continuous advancement of human science and technology, weapons will become more and more powerful, and even powerful weapons such as destroying a planet with a single shot will appear in the future.
This shows that the future development path of human civilization is full of ups and downs, and it will not be smooth sailing. In addition to the devastating crises that may occur within human beings, various disasters other than the Earth also threaten us, such as asteroid impacts, super-powerful sun bursts, and so on.
Of course, these threats from outer space can be easily solved as long as human technology develops to a certain extent. If human science and technology have been going through 10,000 years smoothly, then the earth will not be threatened by various natural disasters in space, and science and technology can solve all this. But even if the human science and technology strength is strong, once our internal peace is not peaceful, it will be a heavy blow to human civilization. It may directly bring us back to the primitive society, and more importantly, it may make the entire human civilization from the universe. Disappeared.
Scientists have been studying and exploring the traces of prehistoric civilization, and on the road of exploration, they have also discovered some things that are suspected of prehistoric civilization. For example, on December 29, 1932, a British adventurer traversed the Libyan desert. When he walked to the shaded area of a sand dune, he unexpectedly found a large amount of strange glass scattered on the sand in front of him.
These glasses are at least 10,000 years old. After making various speculations about their formation, scientists came to the most probable conclusion, that is, a nuclear explosion. If these glasses were formed by a nuclear explosion, then who caused the nuclear explosion more than 10,000 years ago, was it a prehistoric civilization or an alien civilization?
There is also the Mohenjo-Daro site, a relic left by the ancient Indian civilization. About 4,000 years ago, this site also has many mysteries that plague scientists. According to historical records, the city was destroyed overnight. What kind of force caused it?
Archaeologists found 46 relatively complete corpses in the remains. After further research on these remains, scientists discovered that most of these remains have burned traces, that is, they died of instantaneous high temperature. At the same time, scientists also found traces of suspected explosions in the ruins center. Experiments have shown that the place has been burnt at a high temperature of 1400-1500 ℃.
It can make a city burn at high temperatures in an instant. Scientists think of a nuclear explosion. If it is a nuclear explosion, then who used nuclear weapons thousands of years ago or tens of thousands of years ago? Is it a prehistoric civilization or an alien civilization? I am afraid that all this will always be a mystery.
If the nuclear explosion tens of thousands of years ago was caused by prehistoric civilization, then their disappearance may be related to nuclear war, and perhaps some people survived later. The entire civilization has also returned to the primitive age from the age of science and technology, and it took more than ten thousand years of development to have the current science and technology civilization.
