here’s a new conspiracy theory out there, but instead of invoking big government or aliens, it questions whether there’s a laptop carved into an ancient Greek statue.
That’s right — there’s a theory out there saying that a funerary statue of a woman, dated to about 100 B.C., shows her looking at a modern laptop or a handheld digital device. The theory, proposed by the anonymous YouTube user StillSpeakingOut, ventures that the ancient Oracle of Delphi may have foreseen the invention of laptops, and told people about it.
“Just so we are clear, I’m not saying that this relief was depicting an ancient laptop computer,” StillSpeakingOut said in the 100-second-long video. [Supernatural Powers? Tales of 10 Historical Predictions]
But “Greek tales about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to quote-unquote connect with the gods and retrieve advanced information of various aspects,” made him wonder whether the statue represented a prediction, StillSpeakingOut said.
