I know this isn't Egyptian. But what do you think of this? It goes with my theory that once in a time long long ago that humans were technologically much more evolved than we now ever want to admit to.

Fascinating, I have to admit I have never heard of it. Will be interesting to see what comes out of the April symposium

There seems like there is ample evidence to suggest that it was not so difficult to make. The two great feats of engineering used in the machine are the gears, and the tracking of the motion of the stars and moon and planets. The gears are simple metallurgy using a compass to divide the teeth into equal parts, 60,12 etc. The tracking of the orbits of planets and stars just takes observation of time. Things that could be done a long time ago.
