The Antikythera and The Source
PanOrpheus demonstrates his vast knowledge of ancient Greek history and proceeds to travel through time and space to understand the meaning of the Antikythera device. It was thought to be an instrument, constructed by the Greeks, to measure time via the movements of the moon, sun and other celestial bodies. The Antikythera was rediscovered by Greek sponge divers in the early 1900s and has been the source of speculation for over 100 years. During our journey, we’re introduced to a variety of important historical figures such as Pythagoras, Tesla, Theoclea (the Oracle), Mark Twain and even Janis Joplin (who performs). The author’s appreciation for culture is demonstrated in his poems, explanations of Greek plays and song lyrics from the rock ‘n roll era. If you enjoy western history, steampunk themes (gears and steam power) and reincarnation stories, then this is for you.
