I often wonder how much our ancient ancestors, or at least the elite among them, knew about the origins of the universe. We tend to mock ancient accounts and call them myths. But how many of those myths may in fact be flowery, encoded or corrupted descriptions of the theories we know today. I find it interesting that the Greek myths of the origin of the Universe in some ways sound similar to the Big Bang theory. What we call the singularity, the Greeks called Chaos. We know that the Universe as we know it came forth out of the singularity just as the Greeks explained in their history that the Universe was created out of chaos. Chronos (time) and Gaea (matter) were the first to "emerge". I wonder if anyone in the world of physics has ever studied the ancient histories and looked for enough similarities to see that not only did the ancient people (at least maybe only the elite) know what we know today, but had already solved some of the problems we haven't.
