Time and the matter of when

"What time is it?" "You mean now?" Yogi Berra

We have this image in our heads of when we think things happen, when
courses of information came into being, when certian tech surfaced. Here
is a little something I found in my wanderings which calls some of those
suppositions into question.

In 1901, Greek sponge-divers found an ancient shipwreck off the coast of
Antikythera which contained the remains of a geared mechanism over two
thousand years old. Archaeologists and scientists now believe it was a
device for calculating the motions of stars and planets: a primitive
analog computer. The implications for our understanding of ancient history
are potentially enormous.
