True history?


At a first glance, the aim of history criticism consist in (1) the unmasking of false history, (2) the establishment of true history. This scheme does not hold anymore once the reason is discovered for the constitution of false history. Demigods wrote false history as to hide from humans the truth about gods and humans. Sometimes history critics have remarked that power politics is not a sufficient reason for the creation of such an enormous quantity of mystified documents and history. Well, there is a more serious mobile including the more evident mobile: the power politics of demigods after the departure of the gods.

Ancient history (Antiquity and Middle Ages) has been invented using fragments of existing civilizations. In the case of ancient history, false history will never be replaced by true history, in the sense of a true story about empires, actors and events on the timeline. The gods do not have history. And the humans, as long as they were only slaves, did not have history. Sure, the living conditions and relational strutures of humans in the Ancient World are to be discovered, but this is more a question of anthrolopology than of historiography.

In the case of modern history, two layers are always at stake. On the human level, factual history more or less corresponds to the truth. But from the anomalies and structural oddities of standard history it appears that temporal causality is not sufficient to understand the story. The level of the demigods is not documented as such. And the vertical interventions by gods of demigods, perpendicular to the timeline, do not belong to history, even if this inverventions are very down to earth and consist for instance in the embedding of manuscripts or printed books.

In the case of demigods like Napoleon Bonaparte, the two layers are linked in the same person. The effects are very strange. From the human point of view, the entire Napoleon era is very well documented, in detail, for every country in which Napoleon has been active. And at the same time, Napoleon and his "rationale" remain a complete mystery, as the divine side is not documented at all. With events like the Egyptian or the Russian campaign of Napoleon, it is like with the pyramids of Cheops. There is no lack of visibility, they fill our field of vision, and yet we do not understand them at all.

The revolutionary French apparently thought it was their mission in the World to spread their revolution. Napoleon's narcissistic megalomania appears to have hijacked the movement for his own purposes. Amazing how random indivduals can skew reality so dramatically.

Chaos theory ... fluttering butterflies in the Amazon leading to Cat. 5 Hurricanes in the Caribbean.

Does that excuse American narcissistic megalomania that has highjacked much of the last century? There are no random individuals capable of and commited to these adjustments. They are hand picked by Capital to serve Capital. Those butterflies have been reading solar

conditions for a very long time, they know when a hurricane approaches long before we do.

Yes they do but, the contests are eternal and the chances of success diminish with the number of contests, it,s called evolution ain,t it?

No I think there has to be a better way, there must be an amalgomation of alternative ways.

Wrong Direction

Five times a day the devout kneel and prostrate themselves in the direction of their authority. Except that one researcher has worked out that the location of that authority is at another place, the abandoned location of Petra in Southern Jordan.

I suspect the torching of the Library of Alexandria by the Caliphate mentioned in the video was fabricated much later as a logical explanation for the global catastrophe, linked to Venus, that terminated Antiquity. The sheer size of the remaining constructions at Petra, along with Gothic architecture in Europe, and other inferred Middle Age architectural anachronisms suggests that the era of megafauna and flora was terminated by a series of catastrophes that humanity memorialised as religions.
It leads to the scenario that perhaps much of official history is unwittingly fabricated from whole cloth. It implies that the prophets weren’t, but who were conjured up to make sense for the uncomprehending survivors. After all if one’s authority needs obeisance, that authority needs compelling facts to support its primacy. Which implies that the Biblical prophets were added to history after the events occurred: catastrophes are, by definition, unpredictable. In other words history was rendered politically correct. What did Orwell write? He who controls the present, controls the past. And he who controls the past, controls the future.
Perhaps there is a reason why the three Abrahamic Faiths are monotheistic and also evangelical. Monotheism is intrinsically totalitarian and the hall mark of a cultural inability to adapt to a changing environment. They are, perhaps, living fossils.
