According to archaeologists, recent excavations at the site of what was in ancient times, New York City have revealed that modern humans used a small handheld device to communicate with other humans Apparently, telepathy was unknown at the time. New York City was abandoned when the sea rose from climate warming and swamped most of the city rending it uninhabitable. At the time, many humans didn’t believe in global warming.
Researchers exploring the sunken city of Miami, Florida have found evidence that modern humans in the early 21st century used small cards made of plastic to trade or make purchases for goods. Many such cards have often been found buried with people, but their purpose has only recently been determined. Oddly enough, the cards have no known value. Most of the burial sites found in what used to be Florida contained the bodies of older adults. It’s believed that Florida was a community burial site until global warming raised the sea and inundated Florida.
A rare drawing of a four wheeled vehicle of some sort has been discovered on a 1,100-year-old paper poster at the site of the ancient city of Baltimore. It’s believed that humans of that period used these vehicles for transportation. Levitation and teletransportation were unknown during that period of ancient history. The drawing is very rare because most paper products molded when Baltimore sank.
Researchers believe that modern humans mated using a ritual known as “dating”. It’s theorized that following this ritual, the couple or couples would have sex, another ancient ritual for creating offspring. The art of designing babies in special labs was not developed until the 25th century. Modern humans stopped have sex somewhere around the 26th century, although most humans had forgone sex way before then. The matching of two people was perfected with the use of artificial intelligence sometime in the 22nd century, thus ending the ancient ritual of dating.
Archaeologists have determined that modern humans kept certain animals as pets. No one knows why since robot pets are better behaved and never need to be walked or cleaned up after, nor do they consume food. All animal life other than humans and insects became extinct somewhere around the 23rd century.
Researchers now believe that modern humans were very violent, often resulting in killing each other. This was a long-held theory that was only recently proven through excavations of ancient cities. It’s believed that violence was finally breed out of existence in the 23rd century. The last recorded war occurred sometime in the 22nd century in the Middle East. The last cyber war was in the 23rd century.
Researchers have concluded that modern humans used to send their children to institutes of higher learning in order to educate them. Knowledge through drugs was in its infancy at the time. It was thought then that children and young adults could learn by attending classes and lectures. This technique is believed to have still been popular as late as the 23rd century.
Archaeologists have now found evidence that modern humans continued to work well into the 24th century. The need for work and money ended with the invention of the modern materializers created by artificial intelligence. Sculptures and statues depicting humans working were found underwater in the ruins of what was once Los Angeles, a city in the former state of California. Sometime around the year 2105, the western part of California broke off and submerged in the Pacific Ocean following an earthquake.
Scientists have agreed to refer to the period from the year 2100 to 2600 as the First Smog Age. They warn that we must remain vigilant to avoid a second Smog Age.
Researchers have recovered two bodies from the last remaining glacier which finally melted completely. The bodies appear to be two miners who died in route to the California Gold Rush of 1848. Previous bodies were mostly skiers or hikers.
