EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.
Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.
The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***
Imagine in another alternate universe to our own where the Library of Alexandria wasn’t burnt down how advanced and awesome it must be
But what if we got so advanced that we led ourselves into oblivion and in that future they had the knowledge to travel back and destroy the library in a last effort to save humanity? Yeah. That’d be cool.
