been happening since the begging of time, and they still continue. Now we
define them as Ancient wonder and Modern wonders, which are different in their
nature. This essay will focus on their difference according to time and their meaning
to the world and the people itself.
Ancient wonders were the so called “Seven Wonders
of the world”: the Pyramids of Egypt, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the
Statue of Zeus, the Temple of Artemis, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the
Pharos of Alexandria, and the Colossus of Rhodes. Nowadays we define wonders as
“Wonders of modern world” such that: High Technology, Aircraft, Medicine etc. Which
are quite different from the ancient ones aren’t they?I
If we talk about Ancient wonders we now that they were all building and statues. Like The Hanging Gardens of Babylon which is quite ancient and its existents is doubtful. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon is described by the ancient writer Diodorus Siculus as being self-watering planes of exotic flora and fauna reaching a height of over 75 feet (23 meters) through a series of climbing terraces , or we can talk about The Statue of Zeus at Olympia which is an incredible art created by the great Greek sculptor Phidias . The statue depicted the god Zeus seated on his throne, his skin of ivory and robes of hammered gold, and was 40 feet (12 m) tall. In our time most of This Ancient Wonders are destroyed but the reaming ones remind us of Wisdom and Power of them that were before us. II On the other hand if we talk about “The Wonders of the Modern World” we can see that they are not building and statues, in contrast they are wonders that helped evolving the world and shown a new path to humanity. Technology for example has made are life extremely easy comparing to the ancient times. Man developed Computers a device that can do probably everything if they are programmed to. This was a huge leap for mankind because it brought so many possibilities, work places, and of course a better life for man. IIIMedicine is another wonder, through men life span we occur to things that can harm us, such that disease, viruses, bacteria etc. And so in the 20th century, many diseases were conquered through vaccines, antibiotics, and improved living conditions. Many discoveries were made in certain areas that raise the average life span from 50 years to 75 years and it is still rising through the improvement of medicine. IV As we can see through time the definition of wonders for humans changed, in “Ancient times” our ancestor build extraordinary things that even nowadays cannot be explained even with all this technology and knowledge that man has gained. But the same goes for “Modern times”, the people that were living in ancient time couldn’t have thought that man would step on the moon. Ancient Wonders or Modern Wonders, it doesn’t matter really, the only thing that matters is that these wonders help man understand his purpose , wisdom, power and made him be greedier so he can reach new heights and discover things beyond imagination.
