Being one of the most widely spread elements in existence, silicon throughout the history of human civilization played a very important role in architecture and construction, because it served as a component of many building materials, such as glass, concrete and stone. The most dramatic impact of silicon on the human existence and the world’s economics was caused, however, only in the 20th century, when it became widely used in the production of semiconductors and transistors that have later evolved into computer chips, laying a foundation for the whole information industry that is one of the most characteristic features of modern times.
Needless to say, the majority of scientific community considers the entire Fomenko’s work to be pseudoscience, although it has a number of followers. In my opinion, what it reminds me most is one giant, elaborate hoax, for it is way too eccentric to be treated seriously. If everything before certain date is a reflection of later events, what to do with objects from that period that do not fit into any later time? What about written sources? Were they all falsified by some immeasurably powerful organization that had enough time and effort to spare to write and distribute them, destroying everything that doesn’t fit?
