Title: Historical Documentaries
Post by: LightBeam on December 27, 2019, 07:51:31
I have been watching these very interesting documentaries about life in the 1800's and early 1900's. I posted the links below, as they are free if any of you have Amazon prime. Three people lived for a year in an old farm in England and lived and worked just like the people in the Victorian era. There is another series for the Edwardian era. Same three people lived like that for another year. Very interesting. It really makes you appreciate the modern conveniences and stop complaining about your daily chores, because they are nothing compare to how people worked in the past centuries. When you think about it, the very drastic change was from the 20th century on. Before that for thousands of years the progress was there but not really that significant. It makes you think what would be 100 years from now. Are they going to think of us as primitive and laugh when they find out that we needed chargers to charge our devices LOL. Perhaps in the future we will discover a new unlimited energy source that will change completely everything. But going back to watching these documentaries, it really fascinates me the whole evolution process, inventions, discoveries, etc. From the time of the cavemen until today, what a change.

I could see people of the future wondering why we bothered installing traffic lights on the pavement (as per the other thread - Is it Really possible to shift consciousness).

Modern inventions are great but they sure take us away from our roots. I actually see a turning away from tech in our future.

Thank you for the share Lightbeam. I love documentaries like these!  :-)

Talking about things like this has always got me labelled as a "Dinosaur", especially amongst our Grandkids. Modern man seems to have a really "short memory". For some reason, even many of the Adults I speak to today can't remember that there were "simpler times".

 At a Renaissance Faire I was vending at years ago a man in his mid 50's walk into our tent talking on his cellphone. He was really engaged in his conversation. When he was finished his phone conversation, he had a look of frustration on his face. I looked at him and asked "don't you just wish you could punt that thing"? I then attempted to explain my statement by saying "you are at a Renaissance Faire and still can't really fully enjoy your day with that thing going off again and again". He looked at me in a very strange kind of "what are you talking about" look and turned around and left my tent. I had said that to him because I could see he was frustrated by whatever call he just had. He was missing the purpose of the Renaissance Faire itself and that is to get away from it all and enjoy yourself. To lose yourself in History. I figured because he was older and understood that life went on before the advent of the cellphone and all our tech devices that he would have had a chuckle and agreed with me. But that wasn't the case there, lol!  :-o Oh well!  :-)

I actually also hope for it a bit. Otherwise it will be a 5G radiation, Orwellian surveillance state and Transhumanist nightmare. Cannot share the optimism about technology. Yes, there are many advantages compared to 100 or 200 years ago or to the middle ages or whenever. But it also has its downsides on all facets of life. It's a mixed bag.

Thanks for your comments, everyone. Very interesting perspectives. I dont know what I would prefer, perhaps a combination of technological advancement and nature life.

I did find all series in youtube, if anyone is interested. I would suggest to start from video #7 all the way to #47. Just one link with many episodes of different series made by the same people. I haven't watched the secrets of the castles yet. These are the first 7 videos. I watch two, three episodes per night and it is a great escape, like being back in time. If you have smart TVs, you can open the YouTube app on your TV and watch from there. Much more fun.
