If you are addicted to science shows like many of us here at Crestron, you have no doubt have watched and fascinated over Carl Sagan’s Cosmos a “Billyon” times. The series, which originally ran on PBS and more recently on the Science Channel, brought the concepts of cosmology to everyone and inspired a rock star to become a physicist.
Mixing hard science, themes from science fantasy and ancient history the show opened our eyes to a smorgasbord of essential ideas. Episode 1 ‘The Shores of the Cosmic Ocean” re-creates the Ancient Library of Alexandria, a place reported to have contained all of the worlds known knowledge.
The library that existed from 3rd century BCE until the Roman conquest of Egypt in 48 BCE (before it was destroyed by fire) even had an acquisitions department. Emissaries from the institution were sent to the ends of the earth and boarded every ship that came into the port of Alexandria, all to find any new book. The books would be copied and the original held in the great stacks, the owner would get the copy. Sound a bit familiar?
