The knowledge cycle

Amazing; reading 200 yr old books (Maison Rustique from France & ‘Mechanische Technologie’ -[Mechanical Technology]- from Holland) and realising that basic principles haven’t changed. Even that people are ‘re-inventing the wheel’. Maison Rustique for example describes in detail how to grow (organically) veggies and how to process them including distilling essences from herbs, etc.; knowledge that repeats itself by modern garden gurus as if their own…. (picture: ‘Mechanische Technologie’).

    1. True in a way but I grew up in an environment that we always credit the (original) source of an idea, suggestion, invention, discovery etc. 😉

      In my previous life as a journalist I remember the ‘discovery’ (computer and scale models) in a technical lab in Holland of how to shape a vessel that it has less resistance and becomes more fuel efficient. Exactly how the Chinese build their vessels 5000 years ago! … and how inland ships were shaped in Holland 600 yrs earlier … 😀 😀 😀
