A while ago there was a tech tree posted by a Polyton which had 140 technologies, separated into Prehistoric, Ancient, Classical, Medieval, Gunpowder, Enlightenment, Industrial, Modern, Information and Future ages, starting with six base techs: Foraging, Hunting, Fire, Stonecutting, Herding and Paganism.
I wrote down by hand in a notebook the tech tree, and I think this tech tree is interesting it that it synchs with a bunch of other theories, such as the history ideas of Oswald Spengler, and stages of cultural development from Ken Wilber's Integral Theory.
Why I'm asking for a copy of the thread, if anyone knows where I can get it, I'm thinking of writing a novel including these various theories and this tech tree as a basis for a story about the cultural evolution of humankind.
If anyone has any info please let me know, I'll put you in the Aknowledgements section if I ever manage to get the darn thing fully written one day.
