The Infinite Pattern That Never Repeats
I love mathematics, physics and history. This is probably far more detail than most people would care about, because it might seem like useless trivia, but it lead to the discovery of physical properties that we didn't know about. No telling what we might discover next.

Safety trials of the medicine, dubbed Ab8, will start next year with the hope of getting Food and Drug Administration approval to begin clinical trials, said Dr. John Mellors, chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at UPMC and Pitt, the hospital giant's academic partner.
The medicine — which is not a vaccine — is meant to help protect people who are already infected with COVID-19 from having it spread further in their bodies. It should last "weeks to months," Dr. Mellors said during a briefing, but added that it was too early to speculate about the cost of the treatment.
In an article published Monday in the medical journal Cell, Dr. Mellors and other researchers reported that the antibody they'd identified was effective in neutralizing COVID-19 in mice and hamsters.

Dark Matter Is Even Stranger Than We Thought | SciShow News - YouTube
We don't even know if Dark Matter is matter. We just know that extra gravity exists that we can't explain. According to Einstein, gravity isn't so much of a force as it is a side effect of curved space-time. Even while we are still we are moving through space-time, and the curvature of space-time exerts a force on us. (Which to me sounds more like a cute mathematical model than reality.)
I wonder if the extra gravity could be related to the Higgs field or some as of yet undiscovered field?
Do Black Holes have Dark Matter in them? Do Neutron Stars have Dark Matter in them?

There is a small amount of evidence of cattle usage going back to 8,000 BC, but this didn't really get going until about 4,500 BC. During this period there were locally ruled cities along the entire length of the Nile. Eventually, there would be northern and southern kingdoms, which were untied by force in 3,100 BC, and this began the dynastic period of the Pharaohs.
Egypt was conquered by the Persians in 525 BC and conquered again by Alexander the Great in 332 BC. This continued till 30 BC when they were conquered by the Romans. Egypt began shifting to Christianity. During the late Roman period from the 4th to 6th centuries, they would be ruled by the Byzantine Empire, which had split from the Roman Empire. In 640 AD Egypt was conquered by the Muslims. It would be conquered by the Ottoman Empire in 1517 and conquered by the Napolean Bonaparte (the French) in 1798. Egypt was conquered by the British in 1882 and remained under their control until 1954 when the Egyptian Republic was established.
Egypt is one of the oldest examples of farming and human civilization.
