This is the story of a book that could have changed the history of the World. To the untrained eye, it is nothing more than a small and unassuming Byzantine prayer book, yet it sold at Christies for over $2m. For faintly visible beneath the prayers on its pages are other, unique, writings – words that have been lost for nearly two thousand years.

The text is the only record of work by one of the world’s greatest minds – the ancient Greek, Archimedes – a mathematical genius centuries ahead of his time. Hidden for a millennium in a middle eastern library, it has been written over, broken up, painted on, cut up and re-glued. But in the nick of time scientists have saved the precious, fragile document, and for the first time it is revealing just how revolutionary Archimedes’ ideas were. If it had been available to scholars during the Renaissance, we might have reached the Moon over a hundred years ago.

The trail begins in the tenth century, when a scribe made a unique copy of the most important mathematics that Archimedes ever developed. For 200 years the document survived, but the mathematics in it was so complex that no one paid it any attention. So when one day a monk was looking for some new parchment – an expensive commodity at the time – to write a new prayer book, the answer seemed obvious. He used the Archimedes manuscript. He washed the Greek text off the pages, cut them in half, rebound them, and turned the Archimedes manuscript into an everyday prayer book. As he piously wrote out his prayers, he had no idea of the genius he was obliterating.

Several hundred years later, the Renaissance was under way. Scientists were beginning to grapple with new concepts, working out how mathematics could be used to explain the World around them. Little did they know that many of the problems they were just encountering Archimedes had already solved more than a thousand years before. So, tragically, they had to do that research all over again, setting back the development of science and technology immeasurably.

Then in 1906, in Constantinople, the document mysteriously turned up in a monastic library. An opportunistic scholar called Johan Ludwig Heiberg identified the text as Archimedes’ writings. Although the Greek text was very faint, Heiberg was able to decipher some of it. What he found astonished him, and made the front page of the New York Times. He revealed that Archimedes’ manuscript contained something called ‘The Method’, which showed not only Archimedes’ final proofs, but for the first time revealed the process of how he went about making his discoveries.

    Very inspring documentary. It has a lot to say about the state of the world today– we’ve now grown to become interconnected and interdependent as a species–and how a worldview is most needed for us to solve our problems. It covers economics, social unrest, business, education, science–it’s a roller coaster ride through the 21st century with expert analysis from scientists, psychologists, authors, businessmen, and expert opinion makers.

    Highly recommended!

  • Another clever presentation of truth as the global power elite see it. Based on the fallacy of evolution (how does matter gives rise to coded information among other problems) this is nothing more than the new version of communism tricked out as science and some sort of spirituality. Do you really believe the trillonaires are going to give up their power and position so humanity can evolve? If so I have a bridge for sale.

    The documented parts are worth to recollect. The blooming conclusions we had it better directly from NWO.

    Patriarchy’s scientist are keen in shaping out how our real and mental bones moves in the wrong direction. The bone itself stays untouched. The dictate of money and what inheritance and other sorts of dubious funds there plays its role and produce the distinction we are bound to. No answer to that questions of daily concerns and behavior. Therefore; the final warmed up animation to work more together for to get a better result is also valid if master and slave have a good understanding.

    “redistribute the wealth”, “anti-individualist”, “we are all connected, “collectivism”, “workers unite”…this is blatant Marxist ideology. Guess what, this “new system” was tried in the 20th century as communism. It resulted the death in 100 million people, and the suffering of millions more. Watch this movie again, and you will see that it’s obvious propaganda for a communist New World Order.
