I have studied archeology, geology, religion, scripture, ancient texts, mystical places, quantum physics, UFO`s etc., for over 20 years, in some subjects more. I have read and own several of books on these subjects, many of which are great books by great authors, and I will quote and reference them throughout my website continuously. Mankind`s first knowledge of the use of mathematics beyond just counting comes from the Egyptians and Babylonians (Sumerian’s). Both civilizations developed mathematics that was similar in some ways but different in others. The mathematics of Egypt, at least what is known from the Papyri, can essentially be called applied arithmetic. This was based on practical information communicated via example on how to solve a specific problem. But how advanced were the Egyptians really?
In 2008 mathematician and author Michael S. Schneider put together a video explaining how mathematics used by Ancient Egyptians is identical to the math used in computers today. The Ancient Egyptians figured out how to do multiplication without memorizing times tables, and how to do long division without using half boxes. Modern man used Ancient Egypt’s mathematics to build computers! The Ancient Egyptians multiplied mostly by repeated doubling and adding, sometimes also by using ten as an intermediate multiplier when it was more convenient. In this smart way, they avoided the need to learn multiplication tables. In the past, this method was seen as awkward because it was different from the way we do our longhand multiplication. (in fact it’s much closer to the way our binary computers work today
Please watch the video by Michael S. Schneider below it basically teaches you binary math, without using the word binary!
