Uncovering the mystery's of mankind will go well beyond any lifetime we can imagine. We will never know life's beginnings but that won't stop the search. Recent excavations in Liangzhu (suburb of Hangzhou) provide new and interesting theories in the quest to discover how ancient China became civilized. One matter historians agree on presently is the Middle East and Northern Africa hold the keys to Western Civilization.

Artifacts are not only physical keys to every civilization they predate language records of any means. Yitzhak Paz, an archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority who is involved in the project, said that based on sediment buildup, it is between 2,000 and 12,000 years old, a vast range that tells little about it. Based on other sites and artifacts found in the region, Paz places the site's origin some time during the 3rd millennium B.C., or about 5,000 years ago, although he admits the time-frame is just a guess.

Just as Zhou Ying, a vice-dean of Hangzhou Academy of Social Science relates in his recent publication about the Liangzhou site reveals a current study of what is now considered one of the earliest known civilizations in Asia and just may be the Dawn of Oriental Civilization.

Intertwined in all that transpires in a modern world AND East vs West verbal competitions of who and what is first and best. Our ancestors set a simple goal for themselves. Live the best and most comfortable as possible without regard to who has the better hut or mud flat--or even who discovered how to put mud on top of itself to make a wall. It is for all to share.

There is too much of that dribble talk in these forums. Everyone is guilty of dribble talk including the author of this post. Make posts about things that matter to educate others and share knowledge and make that the goal.

Comfortable with my own words and challenge others to do the same.
