Beyond the bounds…

*

It is not beyond the bounds of possibility,

that a technologically advanced people

could live more simply

than their technology insists…

*

But outside the realms of science fiction writing

it is highly unlikely.

*

The Ancients present us with just such a conundrum.

*

Apart from the stones themselves,

the archaeological remains

speak of ‘low-level’ subsistence.

*

The stones and their construction

are anything but low-level,

being at the very least

incredibly accurate chronometers

which purposefully track the heavenly bodies

and quite possibly a lot more besides.

*

One way out of the conundrum

would be to posit two separate peoples

which we might want to call the ‘designers’

and the ‘builders’.

*

But this immediately presents us

with a whole host of equally insurmountable problems.

*

How and why did the two peoples

live in harmony together?

*

Where did the ‘designers’ come from?

And where, eventually, did they go?
