The texts are written in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Nabataean, mostly on parchment but with some written on papyrus and bronze. The manuscripts have been dated to various ranges between 408 BCE and 318 CE. Bronze coins found on the site form a series beginning with John Hyrcanus (135104 BCE) and continuing until the First Jewish-Roman War (6673 CE).
Only the later ones are written in Hebrew. The Old Testament was written in Greek then translated later to Hebrew. Greek was the intellectual language of the ancient world.
Both the old Testament and the New Testament are written in Greek. Hebrew doesn't appear till about 200 AD and exists solely as a sacerdotal and poetic language, not for common speech. Greek is the language of intellectuals in the ancient world. going back at least to 800BC. Aramaic is the language of common people. It looks like Christ spoke Aramaic. His seven last words were aramaic. Aramaic is the precursor to Arabic.
The Vulgate Bible is the first Latin translation.St Jerome translated it in 400AD. He translated it from Greek
In March Nvidia Maxwell comes out. You can't expand the Mac Pro. My next computer will be in April. I'll get a dual socket mobo and initially an 18 core Xeon with 36 threads. I'll have a min of 64 gigs DDR4 RAM and the new Maxwell GPU. Within three or four months I'll get a second 18 core Xeon for 72 threads at 4ghz/thread.
That's a much better deal than that Mac Pro I think.
I suppose if you're a web designer and you use it for Adobe Illustrator it'll be fine. But if you want 3d graphics with real time rendering...well forget it.
Look around. The entire world is fucked. For starters, the population of the world has doubled since I graduated high school. There were too many people back then, now there's twice as many. This will not end well.
Last week I wrote about our large-scale plan to use new technology were building to inject sophisticated computation and knowledge into everything. Today Im pleased to announce a step in that direction: working with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, effective immediately theres a pilot release of the Wolfram Languageas well as Mathematicathat will soon be bundled as part of the standard system software for every Raspberry Pi computer.
And with Raspberry Pi theres something else too: immediately being able to interact with the outside world. Being able to take pure code, and connect it to sensors and devices that do things.
I think its pretty amazing that were now at the point where all the knowledge and computation in the Wolfram Language can run in a $25 computer. And I think that its the beginning of something very important. Because it means that going forward its going to be technically possible to embed the Wolfram Language in pretty much any new machine or system. In effect immediately injecting high-level intelligence and capabilities.
Actually I don't think the real hippies did worship the Beatles. When Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters went stoned on acid to a Beatle concert they were disappointed and even repelled by them. And Hunter S. Thompson was deeply scornful of the Sgt Pepper's album saying it was an LSD album 5 years too late.
By the time Sgt Peppers came out the hippie movement was pretty much over.
The Death of the Hippie parade was staged in Sept 1967 in SF. So the hippies themselves put an end to their movement just as Sgt Peppers was released.
And the less said about Magical Mystery Tour the better.
