    They’ll know exactly what we are … the decline of western civilization.

    At this point, the images that will represent our culture will be thousands of tombstones with ‘COVID-19’ on them…

    We will need to create a digital Rosetta Stone for our descendants.

    Every home I’ve had built has at least one time capsule. My best capsule placement is in a 4’ X 4’ X 6’ concrete antenna base. That big chunk of concrete will be there long after my atoms redistribute.

    Interesting theory on cave paintings, although it was really more about tribal dances. The dances aren’t about magic, they’re about rehearsing the hunt to make sure everybody does their jobs right.

    I think the poop emoji would be more appropriate.

    Ooh! Time to put muh knowledge to the test. I read a book on how to read Egyptian hieroglyphs a few years ago and memorised quite a few by learning how to spell Egyptian names, like Cleopatra and Amenhotep.

    First, the images face right, so it’s to be read from right to left.

    The wavy lines is an N. I remember it from Amenhotep’s cartouche. The empty eye thingy is an R (I remember it from Cleopatra’s cartouche). And the bent arm is a…I don’t remember. Doesn’t it mean “give”? N-r gives?

    The square is the letter P (from Cleopatra again), and rising sun sort of thing is the letter T (Cleopatra yet again). The bed thingy is…I don’t know. [I’m gonna go look it up in my book.] Okay, so it’s a box or a chest, and sounds like “HN”. P-t-hn. (I don’t know what the posts mean. Or are they numbers? Then they would be ones.) Pthn. [Wait, maybe the box is just a box and it contains “Pt”?]

    The birdie with the sun on its head must be Ra, or an aspect of Ra (Ra had many aspects). I think the symbol on the bird’s back has something to do with the horizon? “Ra of the horizon?”

    But I recognise the last few glyphs, though, they mean something like “an offering that the pharaoh gives.”

    Nr gives Pthn to Ra, which the pharaoh gives. [Or Nr gives a box of Pt to Ra, which the pharaoh gives.]

    o_O …What the heck does THAT mean??? I probably got quite a few bits wrong. Maybe I should go back and reread the book a few more times! haha

    Welp, that took me an hour! Fun fun fun. And here I thought I was just going to read the funnies and go to bed. :)

    Petroglyphs, on stone, last centuries. Hieroglyphs could be carved on stone and last millennia. Black figure ceramic ware can endure for centuries. Electronic images are ephemeral. In later centuries they’ll think we’re illiterate based on lack of evidence of writing. I’ve graded the papers. A lot of us are.

    I thought there’d be the face mask emoji at the end.

    Gloom, despair, and agony on me Deep, dark depression, excessive misery If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all Gloom, despair, and agony on me. Your all depressing. I reject your reality and substitute my own. The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades.

    I really like how archeologists tell us how ancient peoples lived when there’s no way they can know for absolute certainty – they’re just filling in the blanks based on their perceived ideas of how they lived. As in “See – this large woman sculpture is a fertility symbol.” (How about they just liked large women aka Paul Rubens?) Unless they’re River Song, archeologists are just guessing how ancient people lived. Yes, I know they have a better understanding of ancient culture, but, again – in my opinion, it’s all just guesswork.

    1,000 years in the future sure seems overly optimistic. My money is on it all ending well before 2075.
