Abstract

One of main ideas of this paper is a hypothesis that the simulation play an essentially more significant role in a human history and culture than it is usually assumed. On some examples it can be demonstrated that modern computational simulation has ancient prototypes and some artefacts can be interpreted as special simulation tools and environments. As typical examples of ancient simulation tools the “life/world tree” on mammoth bone and megalithical “models of the world” are presented. These artefacts were interpreted earlier as calendars, observatories or “ancient computers”. The proposed hypothesis considers the following interpretation as most exact and appropriate: “special computational simulation tools and environments with real-time functions (calendar) and real-world interface (observatory)”.
