Is This Ancient Greek Statue Proof That Laptops Existed Thousands Of Years Ago?

February 8, 2016

Legend has it that the Oracle of Delphi connected priests and rulers in ancient Greece with supernatural beings. Could this statue serve as a clue to how that "connection" was made?

The statue, 'Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant' is on display at The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California.

The historian's description reads, "Lounging in a cushion armchair, a woman reaches out to touch the lid of a shallow chest held by a servant girl on this funerary."

"I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer," YouTube channel StillSpeakingOut said in a video. "But when I look at the sculpture I can't help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects."

It depicts an object that closely resembles a modern laptop or handheld device with USB ports, explained StillSpeakingOut.

Those who don't believe in aliens or time travel, say the object is a wax tablet that ancient Greeks used for writing with a stylus or pen, reported Inquisitr.

But paranormal investigators argue that the 'wax tablet' shown in the funerary relief sculpture does not resemble any other wax tablets seen in Greek art.

They also pointed out that the woman's eyes are focused on the inner lid of the object, the same location of a laptop monitor.

"I can't help but think that Erich von Däniken had been right all this time and that most of these myths of magical artifacts given by the gods to a very restricted group of individuals in ancient civilizations were high-tech devices similar to what we have today," said StillSpeakingOut.
