category: Pseudoscience: Alchemists & Astrologists.
ahem..Alchemy is mostly a misunderstood thing…I (and many) liken it to an analogy for transformation of the human soul. Astrology, while publicly known as newspaper filler and fornew age flakes … IS INDEED A “SCIENCE”, A REALITY, and A PURPOSELY OMITTED AND MOCKED DYNAMIC OF THE LOCAL GALAXY . word to your mother! 😉
dont know what this is, but it looks cool
The Antikythera mechanism.
This mechanism has 30 interlocking gear wheels.. And when you turned a handle it computed and displayed the positions for the Sun, Moon and the planets. It could be used to predict the position and date of eclipses and the planets movements. There were other, much simpler devices, called astrolabes that were used for the same purpose. The primary reason for these devices was for astrology. .
