Gerakariotiko Antamoma 2008

Για πρώτη φορά το καλοκαιρί του 2008 στις 16/08 συναντηθήκαμε όλοι οι Γερακαριώτες στην "Ρούγα",να αποσπερήσουμε!!Κάναμε το πρώτο Γερακαριώτικο Αντάμωμα!!Στην "Πέρα Γειτονία" όπως λέει και η γιαγιά μου ,ήμασταν όλοι εκεί, οι παλιοί για να ξαναθυμηθούν και οι νέοι για να μάθουν πως πέρναγαν τα βράδια οι μεγαλύτεροι μας.
Περάσαμε ένα όμορφο βράδυ με κρασί και χορό.
Ελπίζουμε στο επόμενο αντάμωμα το καλοκαίρι του 2009 να είμαστε ακόμα περισσότεροι οι Γερακαριώτες

Decoding the Heavens: Solving the Mystery of the World's First Computer

Author: Jo Marchant

When Published: 6 Nov 2008

Publisher: William Heinemann Ltd

Available: Dispatched from and sold by Amazon.co.uk.

Description: 336 pages, Hardcover. Dimensions. 20.1 x 13.2 x 3.6 cm

ISBN-10: 043401835X

ISBN-13: 978-0434018352


In 1900 a group of sponge divers blown off course in the Mediterranean discovered an Ancient Greek shipwreck dating from around 70 BC.

Lying unnoticed for months amongst their hard-won haul was what appeared to be a formless lump of corroded rock. It turned out to be the most stunning scientific artefact we have from antiquity. For more than a century this 'Antikythera mechanism' puzzled academics. It was ancient clockwork, unmatched in complexity for 1000 years - but who could have made it, and what was it for? Now, more than 2000 years after the device was lost at sea, scientists have pieced together its intricate workings and revealed its secrets.

In Decoding the Heavens, Jo Marchant tells the full story of the 100-year quest to understand this ancient computer. Along the way she unearths a diverse cast of remarkable characters – ranging from Archimedes to Jacques Cousteau – and explores the deep roots of modern technology not only in ancient Greece but in the Islamic world and medieval Europe too. At heart an epic adventure story, this is a book that challenges our assumptions about technology transfer over the ages while giving us fresh insights into history itself.

From the Inside Flap

In 1900 a group of sponge divers blown off course in the Mediterranean discovered an Ancient Greek shipwreck dating from around 70 BC. Lying unnoticed for months amongst their hard-won haul was what appeared to be a formless lump of corroded rock, which turned out to be the most stunning scientific artefact we have from antiquity. For more than a century this ‘Antikythera mechanism’ puzzled academics, but now, more than 2000 years after the device was lost at sea, scientists have pieced together its intricate workings. Unmatched in complexity for 1000 years, it was able to predict eclipses and track the paths of the Sun and the Moon through the zodiac, and probably even showed ancient astronomers the movements of the five known planets....

Reviews

Though it is more than 2,000 years old, the Antikythera Mechanism represents a level that our technology did not match until the 18th century, and must therefore rank as one of the greatest basic mechanical inventions of all time. I hope this book will rekindle interest in this artefact, which still remains under-rated.

Arthur C. Clarke

A fabulous piece of storytelling, thick with plot, intrigue, science, historical colour and metaphysical speculation. The mechanism is fascinating - but the larger question of why its knowledge was lost, and what else with it, is mind-blowing.

Geographical Location of the Skinia Σκηνια (Tent) Project. At Ayios Theothoros.

The "Tent Project" is the most exciting Kytherian Project since the advent of www.kythera-family.net. If it is realized, it will have equally powerful positive ramifications for unifying Kytherians around the world. Particularly Kytherian youth. It is a mega-project of great quality.

This can be ascertained immediately by perusing the Plans for Σκηνια:

002 St Theodoros Camp PLANS.pdf

A double-sided colour print-out on 140gsm (or greater gsm) high quality paper provides a beautiful document.

Skinia Σκηνια (Tent) Project. Floor & Ground Plans

The purpose of Σκηνια is to create an accommodation and recreation facility for children and young adults from the island of Kythera, Greece, and the rest of the world. There they will engage in sports, ecological, heritage and cultural activities. The purpose of providing the accommodation under tents is to appeal to children’s and young adults sense of adventure. All the rest of the facilities (See 1-7 on the Plan) are fixed and enclosed structures.

The plan includes at (10) a Sports field – one of the facilities desperately required by children and young adults on Kythera.

The facility will be located on (separate) Church land 68.25 metres from the border that surrounds the Monastery of Ayios Theothoros. (See Document, 002 Location of Skinia (1).pdf).

The area of the land is 14305,05 sq.m. (ie 14 stremmata)
The land on which Σκηνια will be built is unencumbered by mortgage.
The building is 153 m2.

The Monastery of Ayios Theothoros, is located on the main central road between the towns of Potamos & Aroniathika. (See detailed colour map on Document 002 Ayios Theothoros Colour Map Location.jpg).

There are many photographs of Ayios Theothoros on kythera-family.

The concept is the brain-child of Father Petros Mariatos. Father Petros is the resident priest of the church oft the Panagia (Virgin Mary) of Ilariotissa in Potamos. It is good that you become better acquainted with him. See photo’s of him at:

Doctor Priest

With the Archbishop of Kythera, 2005 (far right)

The title Doctor Priest, indicates that Father Petros was formally a surgeon at the Hospital of Potamos. He received a “religious calling” later in life. To this day he ministers to his congregation’s physical, as well as their metaphysical needs.

and mobile: ++306977595869

The superb concept called Σκηνια was designed by Father Petros’s son, Andreas Mariatos, and his design team.

Andreas and his young associates, have a large and booming Architecture practice in Athens.

They work from a large well appointed office, located just a few blocks south of the offices of the Triffyleio Foundation, the Kytherian Society of Athens, and the Society of Kytherian Studies.

Andreas and his associates have revolutionised the way architecture is practiced both in Athens, and on the island of Kythera. See many photo’s of the brilliant Gerakari Accomodation development at, and around

Mariatos designed Gerakari Project

This design features in the Kytherian Development Agency’s photograph montage pages 12-15, as do other Mariatos designs. You will receive a colour copy of the Kytherian Development Agency’s brochure shortly.

All architectural and engineering work on the Σκηνια project has been donated free of charge.

Free building material and labour has also been promised by many builders and building suppliers on the island.

The timing of construction has been set out in Stages. No stage will proceed without the finance in place.

This is a sophisticated development plan, as per the Gerakari development, and numerous other developments managed by the Mariatos team.

The total cost of the construction is 170,000 €’s.

As of mid September the Σκηνια project had attracted about 67,000 €’s of donations. I am unsure what the December total is.

Most of these donations have been collected on the island. The residents of Kythera have obviously embraced the concept wholeheartedly. It is now time for the eksoteriki to become involved.

You can donate by attending any Bank and quoting the IBAN number below, for the National Bank of Greece.

IBAN: GR95011038000000380/605180-40

The Kytherian World Heritage Fund assessment:

This is a mega-project that most of us, who understand Kythera, have previously only dared to dream about. Soon that dream will become a reality.
