We like to think that, as humans, we are in control of our world and possess all of the answers. After all, we’ve mapped the Earth’s surface, explored much of its landmasses, written great histories about the various civilizations who have lived here and vastly improved our technological levels. We’ve gone from living in huts and caves to townhouses and apartments. Governments have become more developed, medicines more advanced and communications have shrunk the world and made the movement of information nearly instantaneous. Yes, it’s easy to think we’ve conquered this planet because of the effort we are putting into exploring others strewn across the darkness of space.
Unfortunately, we must burst the bubble that is our massive ego. There is still much on this planet that we do not know and answers which elude us even after decades and centuries of hard work. For instance, as you probably know, humans know very little about what exists under the waters of our oceans and seas. This has led to numerous discoveries where we are left wondering what it all means and how it fits into the bigger picture. Ancient civilizations, strange creatures or, in this case, mysterious treasure finds, can all leave us questioning what it means. A sunken ship, human remains, a strange mechanical device – these are just a few of the many underwater finds we have come across and have no clear cut answers for – at least not yet.
