Amber Room Found (Again)?

Don’t look now, but someone has again claimed to solve one of the greatest mysteries of World War II, the location of the stolen amber from Tsarskoye Selo.

According to "historian turned journalist and lecturer" Sergei Trifonov, the amber is in Kaliningrad.

“Believe me or not, it’s there, 12m down in the sub-soil,” he said, pointing to the entrance of a bunker that sheltered the Nazi high command in the last hours of the Battle of Koenigsberg. “This place was built [in February 1945] with two aims: accommodating the headquarters of General Otto Lasch and storing the treasures of Koenigsberg, a city under siege.”
Others are not convinced.

“He’s a good storyteller who can’t prove anything,” said Vladimir Kulakov at Russia’s Institute of Archaeology.

Maybe so, but that’s what they told Indiana Jones and he recovered both the Ten Commandments and the Holy Grail from the Nazis.

Keep following your heart, Sergei.

Reading these kind of posts reminds me of just how technology truly is omnipresent in this day and age, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
