Historical Evolution

Post by adam88 »

I was just thinking of a theory on historical repetition.  Is it true that "history inevitably repeats itself'?  We all see that it is obvious that Walter Hills Waarriors is a modern version of the battle of cunuxa.  I just mereley want peoples interpretations on the symbolsim of history.  Metaphorically speaking, history always manages to repeat itself in some modern form.  For instance, space travel is a continuation of incountering new lands.  Race car driving is a continuation of chariot racing.  First comes the real Cyrus of Iran, Ghandi, and then Dr. King.  We see that instead of swords, the warriors fight with bats.  Can anyone else give examples of how society evolves into old versions of the past?

In Ancient Greek and Roman ages, during the games "Olimpiade" (Olimpyc Games) and "Giochi del Colosseo" (Colosseum Games) people stopped everything: wars, everyday activities, every working activities... everything!!!
Today it's almost the same... well the World cannot just stop every its activity, sure... but if you need 4 istance an electrician during World Cup Football/Soccer Final, NO CHANCE!!!! All of them are home watching the match!!! 8)

I got another one...When people would use salt in Ghana to perserve their foods but today people would use refrigerators to save their foods. Thats good example.
