Conspiracy theories did not exist in the antiquity, the ancient Greeks were rationalists and scientists with the original sense of the term and all scientific researches on the Antikythera Mechanism lead to the same conclusion.
Kyriakos Efstathiou, professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Aristotelion University of Thessaloniki and head of the group that studies Antikythera Mechanism talked to ANA-MPA and stated that “There were no conspiracy theories. All our research has shown that our ancestors used their deep knowledge of the astronomy and technology to construct such mechanisms and based only on this conclusion, the history of the technology should be re-written because it sets its start a lot of centuries back in the past,”.
Antikythera Mechanism is one of the greatest mysteries of the ancient world, and dated between 150-100 BC.
As Mr. Efstathiou explained this is undoubtedly the first computer of the antiquity based on the scientific term for the computer according to which “it is a machine with an entry where we can import data and this machine can bring and create results based on a scientific mathematical scale”
He added that “Never before did we have such a device” underlining that “we do not simply refer to a computer but to a super-computer.”
The most recent results of the Aristotle University’s study on Antikythera Mechanism will be presented on Wednesday 11 November at the university premises.
Also, the new educational model of the mechanism that was constructed by the University’s scientific group will be presented and will reveal all the new facts of the research.
