It happened around 415-416 AD – but History seems to be repeating itself.

Alexandria had the GREATEST Library in the History of Classical civilization – and one day, on a day just like today – it was no more. Burnt to the ground by a mob of slaves led by Cyril, the Bishop of Alexandria. Mankind slipped into an ignorant slumber for nearly 1200 years after its fall.

“There is no record, in the entire history of the Library that ANY of the illustrious scholars and scientists who worked here, ever seriously challenged a single political or economic or religious assumption – of the society in which they lived.
The Permanence of Stars was Questioned – the Justice of Slavery, was not
– Carl Sagan

Fast-forward to Egypt – circa, January 25th – 30th, 2011



The Internet is OUR Library of Alexandria.
Will it see the same fate as the papyrus filled one of Ancient Alexandria?

This time – it may be the Elite – who finally shut it down – forever.

Update: 4th Feb 2011 – Alexandria TODAY
