Historians of ancient civilizations, especially regarding the Greeks and
Romans, tell the public that, e. g., only about *5%* (or less) of created
Greco-Roman literature has survived to the present time.  Many volumes and
tomes of what Plato, Aristotle, Aristophanes, Cicero, Plutarch, Virgil,
etc. wrote had not, in fact, been saved from various acts and instances of
destruction for whatever reasons.

Untold thousands upon thousands of manuscripts have been simply lost
permanently, in the tunnels of time, besides the so unfortunately repeated
burnings done to, e. g., the ancient Alexandrian Library. Massive chunks of
knowledge, as should be known by all educated people, have easily been lost
to human history.

“If only there were a massive entity that I were forced to fund to tell me
how I should live my life, since I’m so obviously incapable of deciding for
myself.” M. Hashimoto
