2000-Year-Old Androids, Automatons, and the Antikythera Mechanism

Note from c0mmando:
I noticed that this page was no longer available on the internet, including internet archive and archive today. So I am recreating the post below from my offline backups. Originally sourced from https://11faustia11.com/2020/09/2000-year-old-androids-automatons-and-the-antikythera-mechanism-1780/ .

“David Roentgen (1743–1807) took his royal patron by surprise when he delivered this beautiful automaton to King Louis XVI for his queen, Marie Antoinette, in 1784.”

Jaquet Droz “The Writer” Automaton From 1774
The Peacock Clock is a large automaton featuring three life-sized mechanical birds. It was manufactured by the entrepreneur James Cox in the 2nd half of the 18th century and through the influence of Grigory Potemkin it was acquired by Catherine the Great in 1781

This Automaton, known as the “Draughtsman-Writer” was built by Henri Maillardet, a Swiss mechanician of the 18th century who worked in London.

These Academics seemed surprised and uniformed.


Let me fix that.

A couple of my reference books, both of these are nearly 300 years old. I keep my works like these, which number around 120 on a separate shelf for quick access, and to keep them safe from damage, as almost all of them are 100 years old or more.

It’s works like these that have kept a lot of the old sciences alive through the centuries. So when the so called ‘academics,” of modern times, says something is impossible or Aliens were involved…

Contrary to popular belief, Google is not your friend.

Most of the Videos and articles on the Internet, are mislabeled.

The Human figures that can mimic Human actions are Androids and the Non Human or doll like, are classified as Automata or Automatons

The Silver Swan Automaton 1773

“The Antikythera Mechanism is the oldest known mechanical calculator. It was constructed around the second century bce and lost in a shipwreck very close to the small Greek island of Antikythera. The shipwreck was discovered 2,000 years later, in 1900.”

So much for the Greeks being the inventors, as the academics state.

“Chinese spheres said to have been made some 2000 years before the Christian era…”

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

Modern Translation: “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9

As for the Voynich Manuscript, I’ve known about this for years and it’s on my list to take a real good, long look at it, from a Hermetic and Alchemical point of view. (Some time in the future.)

It seems though…to be some form of Elvish. :slightly_smiling_face:

I’m sorry, I had Too. LOL
