There is wacky theory, conspiracy ridden conjecture and plain old looney raving when one touches upon the subject of an Upside-Down Earth. It’s not the science of seismic pole-shift or quantum mechanics of the universe that we’re interested in though, those pithy arguments tend to deflect from the true subject at hand, a personal perspective.
Domination politics has so skewed our point of view that even investigators searching links between the Bible and our historical ancient world are baffled by inconsistencies. Failures have given ample ammunition to the detractors of the Judeo-Christian ‘story’ mostly due to the fact that anything that doesn’t make sense is pronounced as nothing less than a miracle. That works on the devout ones but explains little if anything at all.
Gavin Menzies proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that non-European (Chinese) maps of the world existed long before the voyage of Columbus but defenders of mainstream academia prefer that we believe the legends and forego honest investigation. Careers are built on such things, WAGs fill in the cracks for the status quo and lead people to believe that if degreed experts didn’t give a nod on something, it ain’t necessarily so.
Anyone with time on their hands to amuse themselves will have hours of fun reading one theory after another to connect their own dots, the web is chock full of outasites referencing science and religion to ‘prove’ minuscule points. Geographic catastrophe happened in our past and the future holds much of the same but when translating ancient notes for a modern world, the same mistake is made over and over again.
Greco-Roman civilisation gave the West it’s original perspective on the world and until the time of the Mercator projection, a good 2000 years had passed before any layman cared what our Earth really looked like. A cycle of geographical apathy has surfaced again in the USA where they can’t even tell you the name or location of the capitol over in the state next door. Does it matter that ancients didn’t think the world was flat?
The rulers and influencers of the planet are comforted to know people are that dumb, that the age of mass information transferral hasn’t tampered with their olde stroke of genius that literally turned the world upside down. You won’t find it in a history book but this time, a legend deserves more credence than accepted logic. On first viewing Mercator’s map, scholars loved it but the big merchants of the day hated the draft.
The original outline was similar to papyrus maps based on ancient Greek tradition of placing the coast of Africa at the top and the lands of the Barabarians at the bottom. Egypt’s civilisation was then man’s greatest accomplishment and their natural place was above all others. It wasn’t until the 8th century that maps made in the West at the Abbey de Saint Denys began to represent the Europe we know in the way we know it. The master forgers of the time were commissioned to counter the excommunication of the king of the Franks by Constantinople.
They formed the Catholic Church out of the Cult of Rome to dislodge the supremacy of the Eastern Roman Empire, it was a generational task passed down to his sons by Pepin the Short and they didn’t shrink from the task. All known maps were gathered up and re-drawn with the lettering set upside down for anyone familiar with navigation at the time. This action naturally placed Paris higher on the map than Constantinople.
Mud-slinging between the warring parties hadn’t always done the trick, outrage was momentary and people soon reverted to the original arbiters of Christianity but the double-whammy worked. Re-energising the Phrygian Roman Cult on Vatican Hill as something it wasn’t, it changed people’s perspective on their world to help the Pepins literally get the upper hand and they put themselves above their enemy with a pen.
Strokes of genius don’t come much smoother, that which is visibly above is superior to the untrained thinkers who could then claim collectively to have the moral as well as the physical high ground. This seemingly unimportant switcheroo had repercussions but it wasn’t until the Fourth Crusade turned against Constantinople that the donkey work of counterfeiting history hit it’s full stride after the Frankish takeover in 1204.
The libraries were ransacked and looted books worth a king’s ransom ended up sold throughout Europe, some of which went to the University of Leuven for Mercator to use 300 years later. When Michael Paleologos was restored as emperor after kicking the Franks out in 1261, the need to maintain uniformity in trade forced the Greeks to redraw their own maps in the new fashion and train navigators in a reshaped world.
People understand hierarchical charts and the illiterate masses of Europe attained a feel-good factor yet the Franks couldn’t help themselves solidifying their lies through the auspices of the Phrygian homosexual cult they pretended to redirect to worship Christ. For example, Britain’s towns and provinces had Roman names still used in the time of the Venerable Bede but a story was invented to rename the area of England.
It is claimed that one of the Popes saw a clutch of blonde haired slaves at the auction block and asked where they had come from. When he was told they were captured in south-east Britain, he supposedly remarked it must be the land of angels and Anglia was born. That a man of God would approve of His angels being traded for money is ridiculous but the hidden purpose of forgeries wasn’t evident till the Norman invasion.
William the Bastard had full Papal approval in 1066, his conquest of Saxon Britain was designed to permanently tie fallen ‘angels’ to the Vatican yoke and whether anyone believes it or not, they’re still effectively in charge today. The Domesday Book has a resemblance to modern real-ID and cataloguing every scrap of information about the revenue raising potential of people, it harks back to a time when the state owned it all.
The empirical method of visualising the world in it’s modern proportions has done the greatest disservice to humanity, particularly the Africans, which Europeans knew first both literally and biblically. Being at the bottom of our projected world map meant that stepping on them was a natural state of things for those who didn’t have a clue about their original First World status and the abject poverty of the South is now but a given.
Much the same can be said of American perceived superiority over Latin Americans even though there isn’t any Nazca line or ancient temple anywhere north of Mexico. Evidence is all around us if one cares to see. Do the Jews not say they are ‘going up’ to Israel? Meaning ‘up’ from the sea rather than exodus from Egypt? Is Xenophon’s Anabasis, ‘The Ascent’ not an incorrect title in a geographical viewpoint sense today?
Much is made of our present condition, that life in a legal sense is the mirror-image precisely designed to confuse us about where we stand in the eyes of the Law. When the same set of arguments are applied to Geograghy, the connotation of ‘being’ from the South instantly bestows second class citizenship. The Greek word for the North is Βορέας (god of the cold wind), an apt description of the temperament of the natives.
Napolean said; “History is a set of lies agreed upon.” The necessity of fibs we hold as Gospel today is no doubt linked to motivating people to behave in a uniform way so every move can be guessed to benefit commerce. But it’s not all nickels and dimes, people can’t find their place in the world, they’re not too sure where they truly stand. But Bob Dylan knows; “You’ll find out when you reach the top, you’re on the bottom!”
