“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”– George Orwell, 1984.
By the middle of the XVIth century, the prime political agenda of Europe that has reached superiority in Sciences and Technologies but was still inferior militarily was to free itself from the yoke and control of the “Evil” Empire of Eurasia.
The learned scholars, clergy, the monastic orders have invented in XIII-XVth centuries the phantom world of ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, and Persia wrote their histories and populated them with the figureheads of rulers, warriors, saints, philosophers, and scientists they invented.
The concerted effort of European aristocracy, black and white Catholic clergy despite the bitter fights with Protestants, humanists, and scientists in XV-XVII centuries in creation and dissemination of ideas of the fictional Ancient World and Dark Ages served this agenda. All parties taking part had their own vested interests.
The fictional Ancient World was created by black and white Catholic clergy, Protestants, humanists and scientists by representing events of XI-XVI centuries as ones that happened thousands of years before according to the ancient authorities they invented and the sources they wrote under aliases.
The European aristocracy, some of which were fugitives from Byzantine (Crusades and Exoduses) and some the inheritors of Eurasian warlords, supported the myth of Ancient World to justify their claims to countries they wanted to self-rule tax-free from the Evil Empire.
The black and white Catholic clergy, Protestants from the countries ruled by the European aristocracy developed and supported the myth of the Ancient World to justify their own claims of being more ancient and thus more close to origins of true Christianity (Apocalypse as seen by Astronomy) in order to split from the Oriental Eurasian orthodoxy.
The scientists supported the myth of Ancient World as a safe cover of their contrarian (i.e. Giordano Bruno, Galileo) research that produced results too heretic from the point of view of Christianity (Astronomy vs History).
The Humanists and Protestants had to develop and support the myth of the Ancient World as a safe haven for their ideas that conflicted with Christianity and aristocracy (i.e. John Wycliffe, Tyndale, John Huss, Savonarola were burned at stake).
“Evil” Empire of Eurasia
The consistent hypothesis of 500 – 1800 A.D. compressed timeframe of world history
“First Rome” period. 500 – 800 AD. Prehistory. An ancient Egyptian kingdom Kem in the delta of the Nile with its capital in Alexandria.
Breakthroughs in 500 – 800 AD: Polytheism. Fluvial agriculture. The invention of instruments, weapons, and hieroglyphs. Delta of Nile Proto-state grows into Kingdom State Kem and expands on Mare Nostrum coasts. Hieroglyphs written on papyri, plaster, textile, clay, stone supports make management of proto-state possible. Hieroglyphic writing is descriptive but unsuitable for a composition of complicated phrases and texts. Writing is difficult to learn, teach and use.
“Second Rome” period: 800 – 1000 AD. Kingdom Kem expands further to the North and the coastal Mediterranean and transforms into a proto-Empire Judea-Israel with Capital Yoros on Bosporus with themes in Europe. Reflected in consensual history as placeholders Jerusalem, Babilon, Troy, Constantinople, Czar-Grad. The Issue with Troy
Breakthroughs in 800 – 1000 AD: Polytheism and Monotheism. The invention of the iron, steel, copper, the wheel. The invention of alphabetical writing and parchment as support for writing. The cost of parchment is prohibitive. All supports are expensive and difficult for writing. The composition of complicated phrases and texts is difficult. Literature is impossible. Teaching and learning to write are difficult.
The spread of knowledge, technologies, and know-how is slow. Reflected in consensual history as supreme beings: El, Elohim, Elah, Savaoph, Yahweh, Theos, Jehovah and Adonai, Mizraim, etc..; alleged characters: Alexander the Great, Darius, Nebuchadnezzar, Euclid, Julius Caesar, Nero, Adrian, Caligula, Constantine, Ptolemy, Pharaoh, Cleopatra; etc..and alleged placeholders: Babilon, Troy, Ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt, Persia, etc.
“Third Rome” 1000 – 1200 AD period: Judea-Israel rules from the capital Rome, idem Constantinople, idem Czargrad situated on Bosphorus and expands in Western, Central and Eastern Europe divided in fiefdoms ‘Thems”. It is reflected in manuscripts of XIII-XV century AD, subsequently: Troy, Rome, Jerusalem, Constantinople, Czar Grad, Istanbul. Israel expands to Russia. Alleged name of god/supreme being: El, Elohim, Elah, Savaoph, Yahweh, Jehovah. Alleged characters: Atilla, Martell, Charlemagne, Clovis, King Arthur, Wilhelm the Conqueror, Princes Vladimir, Oleg, Ryuriks, Emperor Constantine, King Richard, etc..; The Issue with Antiquity
Breakthroughs in 1000 – 1200 AD: Polytheism transforms into Monotheism. The invention of the iron, steel, paper, stirrups, primitive and composite concretes, mathematics, astrology, and alchemy. The invention of stirrups, cavalry, military formations. The invention of paper, parchment, alphabetic writing, religious literacy, primitive and composite concretes, mathematics, astrology, and alchemy. Polytheism transforms into pre-Christian Monotheism.
Breakthroughs 1000 – 1200 AD: start of construction of big projects, i.e. Pyramids, Sphinx, Temples, obelisks in Egypt, aqueducts, coliseums, theatres, roads in Europe. State `Kem` transforms into state `Egypt` headed by deified Pharaohs. Construction of pyramids and decoration of temples.
Hieroglyphic writing is used for religious purposes and for a description of the important events and/or religious notions on the walls and columns of temples and palaces. Creation of vocabulary of astrological and astronomical symbols allowing recording the dates of important events.
Dates of crucial events are recorded in zodiacs and horoscopes in palaces and temples of Egypt. Original Dendera Zodiac of 6 feet in diameter hangs in the main entry of Louvre, Paris. Napoleon has taken as “souvenir” of his Egypt expedition he dismally failed.
“Orthodox Catholic Christian Empire” 1200 – 1300 AD. Pre-Christian Monotheism transforms into Orthodox Catholic Christianity. Christian Crusades to Constantinople, Czar-Grad.
Orthodox Catholic Christianity expands in Western, Central and Eastern Europe and transforms into Christendom. Orthodox Christian Empire forms in Russia and colonizes Central and Western Europe. It is reflected as the invasion of Huns under Attila and the migration of Germanic peoples. Religious literacy, improvement of mathematics, astrology, and alchemy.
Breakthroughs 1200 – 1300 AD: Monotheism transforms into Abrahamic pre-Christianity. The invention of cheap paper. Writing from with vowels makes texts easily readable. Recording written information becomes simple. The composition of complicated phrases is possible. Long complicated texts and literature are feasible. Teaching to write and read is easy. Dissemination of knowledge facilitated. The speed of proliferation of ideas increases. Conflicts based on different ideas are inevitable.
Breakthroughs: Christianity becomes the prime mover. Following mutiny caused by the conflict of religious ideas Byzantine Emperor Andronicus allegedly born in 1152 in Crimea is killed (crucified) in 1185 in Jerusalem, and allegedly buried on the mountain of Beikos, Constantinople, Istanbul.
Breakthrough: Pre-Christianity transforms into Orthodox Catholic Christianity with Emperor Andronicus as the prototype of Jesus Christ of the New Testament. Orthodox Catholic Christianity transforms into Christendom.
Breakthrough: Crusades. Crusade of 1189-1192 AD and Crusade in 1199-1204 AD to Jerusalem-Constantinople were military operations under the banner of Christianity by the subordinates of late Emperor Andronicus. Sack of Constantinople in 1204. Movement of carriers of initial Science, Technology and culture to Europe. Crusades and Exoduses.
Breakthrough: Religious education. Due to the powerful societal potential of ideas of Christianity, due to the increased speed of proliferation and dissemination of writing and reading, religious literacy and education become possible and spread. Hundreds of monasteries, dozens of sects, schools, religious universities spring in Christendom across Minor Asia and Europe.
Breakthrough: Orthodox Catholic Christian Empire. XII-XIV AD – Slavic and Turkic Princes of Israel, blood relatives, and subordinates of Byzantium Emperor Andronicus recreate an Orthodox Catholic Christian Empire with Center in Great Novgorod, i.e. group of Vladimir-Suzdal-Yaroslavl-Kostroma-Moscow Golden Ring cities. Rem: Russian Czars are shown as direct inheritors of Jesus on their family tree in Annunciation Cathedral of Kremlin. The Issue with Czar’s Helmet, The Issue with Russian History
“Evil” Empire of Eurasia 1300 – 1500 AD. Orthodox Catholic Christianity splits into Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Judaic and Islam currents. The Horde from Pacific to Atlantic
Breakthroughs: Colonization of Europe. Orthodox Catholic Christian Empire colonizes and baptizes the Central and Western Europe. Rem: the swords, armor, decorations with Turkic, Slavonic, Arabic and allegedly illegible inscriptions are kept in European museums. Rem: manuscript Orthodox Slavonic Bibles used in royal coronation ritual are kept in the cathedral of Reims, France and Nikoping, Sweden. Re: Helmets and armor of Russian Czars kept in Kremlin Armory bear Quran quotes. The Issue with Czar’s Helmet
Breakthroughs: Orthodox Catholic Christian Empire grows rapidly into a multi-confessional and multilingual centralized and ruthless “Evil” Empire with citizens strictly divided into hereditary castes: governing, civil, military nobles (Caucasians), transportation and equine relay network (Gypsies), taxation (Jews, origin of anti-Semitism), Orthodox, Catholic or Muslim clergy of common Abrahamic root. The Issue with Great Tartary.
Breakthrough: Military superiority of “Evil” Empire of Eurasia. Due to the overwhelming superiority and mobility of cavalry troops, strict discipline, superior administration, organization and communication in the “Evil” Empire the colonization and control of tribal territories or proto-states was very rapid. Equine relay network run by a caste of Gypsies and taxation system run by a caste of Jews is set up. Blood tax’, i.e. conscription of population enforced. The Issue with Tamerlane.
The disintegration of the “Evil” Empire of Eurasia. 1500-1700 AD.
Breakthroughs: “Evil” Empire of Eurasia ruled the lands. The eventual resistance is ruthlessly crushed. The refusal of themes-fiefdoms to pay taxes due to Emperor alias Czar alias Caesar alias Khan is punished by ‘Tartar-Mongol invasions’. The Empire built castles, fortresses and road networks for troops, long-distance equine relay system with transportation speed up to 30 km/hour for governance and trade (horse and horseman are changed in relays). The Empire establishes provincial capitals (Warsaw, Berlin, Munich, Paris, Rome, Prague, Vienna, London, Madrid, etc..) the key points of the road network. The Horde from Pacific to Atlantic
Breakthroughs: Plagues. Islam. Ottoman Empire. The network of roads and trade between formerly isolated populations across the Evil Empire Eurasia leads to the spread of infectious disease and plagues. “Evil” Empire splits into Ottoman and Russ-Horde branches to contain the spread of infectious diseases by ruthless military containment operations. Islam splits from Christianity completely. The Issue with Tamerlane
Breakthroughs: Rapid development in Europe. The warlords of conquering armies of the “Evil” Empire often stayed as rulers in colonized countries and made their rights hereditary. After 2-3 generations the heavy taxation by far away ‘Mongol’ Caesar alias Emperor alias Khan inspired separatist ideas to the inheritors of the same warlords.
Breakthrough: European Aristocracy. The split of Christianity into Orthodox and Catholic currents prepares the ideological ground for separation of Europe from Empire. The inheritors of Imperial warlords become English, German, French, Spanish kings and form a class of European high aristocracy, fight dynastic wars.
Court historians invent ‘ancient’ dynasties to please the inheritors. Clergy duly explains the divine origin of royal power. Astrologists invent abundant “confirmations” thereof in the sky. Rem: all solar eclipses of Antiquity and Ptolemy described in `ancient` manuscripts turn out to be medieval. Astronomy vs. History
Europe separates step by step from the “Evil” Empire of Eurasia and splits into competing parts. England builds the Royal Navy to rule the waves and turns from a tiny impoverished kingdom into the enormous British Empire. French principalities mutate into a Monarchy that tries to rule Western Europe.
The imbroglio of 300 kingdoms of Central Europe stays under Habsburg’s umbrella of Roman Empire of the German Nation that was neither Roman nor Empire. Spain discovered and colonized the Americas. European provinces develop arts, science & technology considerably faster than ‘Mongolian’ Center too busy with expansion in and control of Eurasia.
Breakthroughs: the Printing Press. Propaganda. After the invention of the printing press producing cheap multiple copies of documents, the speed of information proliferation and dissemination of the art of writing, teaching, reading, and education increases by an order of magnitude. Hundreds of monasteries, thousands of schools spread literacy, and dozens of universities spread science appear across Minor Asia and Europe. Enlightenment. Propaganda becomes a powerful weapon for/in Europe. The Apocalypse as seen by Astronomy
Breakthrough: “Re-Naissance”. To confirm the divine rights of the new ‘ancient’ ruling class of Europe learned people of Re-Naissance invent in XIV-XVI centuries AD Ancient Greece, Rome and their paraphernalia. Thousands of learned monks of different orders, white and black clergy, a new class of learned people toil for three centuries to elaborate ‘ancient’ languages, compose literature, philosophy masterpieces under resounding pseudonyms. Re: artists and sculptors produce ‘ancient’ artifacts. The Issue with Antiquity
Breakthrough: Development of Science. Under the cover of allegedly pre-diluvian scientific treaties signed for their own security by glorious names of ancient astronomers, philosophers, and scientists, astrology transforms into astronomy, religion into philosophy, alchemy into chemistry. Fearful of Inquisition scientists work under pseudonyms. The groundwork of Science is laid. To turn witchcraft into medicine corpses are stolen and dissected. Anatomy theatres open in universities. Rem: Now sculptors can make beautiful `ancient` Greek and Roman sculptures. Dark Ages in Medieval History
Breakthrough: Separatism in Europe. After two centuries of ‘Mongol’ yoke, the separatism takes hold in Western Europe, which by then has already invented clocks, powder, guns, paper, printing, telescope, and the microscope and sells them in Empire. Printing plays a major role in the religious conflict in Europe. The concerted effort of Europe to escape the control of the “Evil” Empire with its crushing military superiority was inevitable. The Issue with Mongols
Breakthrough: Protestantism in Central, Western and Northern Europe. Inheritors of ‘Mongol’ warlords in Germany support Martin Luther’s reform of the pro-imperial Catholic Church into Protestantism. Massive pogroms of the Jewish cast of imperial taxation, the sack of numerous Catholic cathedrals and monasteries took place. The European wars of religion from 1524 to 1648. Peace of Westfalia treaty, recognition of three separate Christian traditions in the Holy Roman Empire.
Breakthrough: The Siege of Vienna in 1529 was a failed attempt of the “Evil” Empire to re-conquest Europe with the hands of its partner Ottoman Empire. That attempt failed because of the resistance of Protestant German Princes, inheritors of the warlords of the Evil Empire that conquered Europe in the XIII century.
Breakthrough: Council of Trent. In Trent Council of 1545-1563 Black and White Catholic clergy transforms the pro-imperial Orthodox Catholic Church into the Roman Catholic Church. List of forbidden authors established and ancient heretic and/or manuscripts burnt all over Europe.
Breakthrough: Roman Church changes in 1582 Julian to Gregorian calendar in Europe. Writings of ‘ancient’ Roman, Greek authors are mass-produced by Benedictine order, originals are never found. Multi-volume collections of ancient Greek and Roman authors appear before original masterpieces of the “ancients” are found, if found at all.
Breakthroughs: War of “Evil” Empire Dynasties. Czar Ivan the Terrible (1530-1584) character actually stands for 4 consecutive competing pretenders to the throne. European troops assure victories over Judea Kazan Khan and Tartar Khan of Crimea in the dynastic civil war. The intestine struggle of dynasties decimated over 10 000 high-ranking officers of the Russian Horde armies making the re-conquest of rebellious Europe by “Evil” Empire unfeasible and the ensuing Great Strife therein inevitable. The Issue with Ivan the Terrible
Breakthrough: Memory of “Evil” Empire erased. Once the objective of the disintegration of reached, Europe makes a concerted effort to erase from the memory of peoples of the former Evil Empire the very fact of its existence. Such effort was supported by the class of European high nobility who already had their brand new ‘ancient’ history ready. Rem: Jesuit Chronology served for 300 years as the immutable basis of the world history was composed by Protestant Scaliger (1585) and Jesuit Petavius (1627). The Issue with Chronology
Breakthrough: Eurasian Czar dynasty replaced. Great Strife in Empire of Eurasia. German Protestant princes helped the pro-European Romanov dynasty to usurp the throne of “Evil” Empire Eurasia in 1613. The former provinces of “Evil” Empire of Eurasia: China, Japan, Iran, and Ottoman Empires become independent, but stay fiercely anti-European and anti-Romanov. Ottoman Empire tried the reconquest of Western Europe in 1529 and in 1689 and dismally failed. The Issue with Ivan the Terrible
Breakthrough: The Royal Navy protected a vast trade that made Britain wealthy and sparked revolutions in agriculture, industry, and finance which change Britain and the world forever. The Navy pioneered new sciences and reinvented our understanding of the world we live in, and made the sea and seafaring an integral part of culture and identity of the British Empire. Britania rules the waves.
1700-1917. “Russian Empire of Eurasia”
Peter the Great starts to build the New Russian Empire, modernizes his part of the former “Evil” Empire up to the Urals, moves the capital from Moscow to St Petersburg. Beats under Poltava in 1709 the King of Sweden Karl XII, another clear pretender to the Russian throne. Peter the Great leaves in 1725 a Testament ordering his inheritors to make Rusian Empire great again.
In 1762 Romanovs becomes Holstein-Gottorp-Romanov German dynasty. In 1773-1775 the New Russian Empire crushes the Great Tartary headed by Pougatchev, the last pretender from the “Evil” Empire of Eurasia. In 1776-1796 Russian Empire expands to Siberia, Alaska, and North Western America it can’t control. The Testament of Peter the Great.
