AMAZING ARTICLES #15: THE MYSTERY OF
"complexity is only deceiving simplicity."
Latin, a language dead for about 2000 years, is the language of science and wisdom
today—though, not for everybody. In past News highlights we have
presented a few Latin proverbs, wise words, and even poems; following
are two more.
"Ars gratia artis" - this translates to, "Art for the sake of art", and the meaning is, art for the sake of art is totally meaningless and futile. In other words, art needs to transmit
a message, or an intelligent idea; otherwise, art becomes just some "beautiful nothing".
"Ars sine scienta nihil est" - this translates to, "Art without science is nothing."
Wow! 2500 years ago, Latins enjoyed scientific fiction (or Science Fiction)!

The most important
Civilization of our History is the Greek one—this is
today, and forever! Amazingly and unexplainably, many English people do not
savor much their Latin origin. Why they feel
that way is a psychological mystery, because we couldn't discover any logic behind the facts. However, if we take
it illogically, then . . . yes, things start making some sense!
Of course, we are referring here to the old Greek
Civilization—also named the Hellenic
one—because the Hellenic Republic today appears to be just another civilized country, same as many others. We
have no intention to be rude towards the Greek people; it just looks to us
that the old
totally different. The Latin culture had such an ample influence in our
entire Civilization, that we can safely state that all
European cultures today are, more or less, a direct continuation.
Roughly between 1100 BC and 300 AD, Hellenic Civilization was the promoter of culture on our
Planet—well, on a
good part of it. After 300 BC, the Romans took over, but we would like to point out the Romans were in fact
continuing the Hellenic Civilization directly. Italian appears to be the closest language to Latin today.
For us, History means events in time: this is, mostly wars, rulers ascending or descending, and so on. However,
there is this Global Picture which makes all those wars and changes of rulers totally insignificant: they simply do
not matter. Now, the problem is, Global Picture is not easy to see, though we should make the effort.
What truly matters today, for us, are some very advanced Latin ideas. Let's
take this Democracy concept. As it was
mentioned previously, we cannot imagine today a better form of Government than this 2500 years old principle. This
is so amazing: it means, those old Greek people were a lot more intelligent than we are today! Even more, the
Democratic concept appeared in a period of chain-slavery [this chain-slavery is the first, and the most brutal form
of slavery in which people were considered plain merchandise].
Another important philosophical Hellenistic concept is the classification of people into
"classes". That idea was,
and it still is, the main instrument used by the communist regimes to define
the entire philosophy based on "conflicts between social
classes". Now, the idea of social classes is important for its historical role,
only it was
improperly implemented in each instance, historically.
Hellenic Civilization used wealth to differentiate people, and
the communists use(d) people's origin. Both are artificial and irrelevant, because
the only thing that may
differentiate people is their intelligence: some have more, others have less,
though we all have the chance to work
very hard to improve it. In the end, what matters most are true, good,
psychological human qualities, such as empathy and altruism.
The general concept of "classic" was also defined during
Civilization, and it continues to be
greatly valued today. We want to mention here just a few great names: Thales of Miletus, Euclid, Archimedes,
Pythagoras, Aristotle, Democritius, Socrates, Plato, Anaxagoras. Fact is, there are hundreds of great
Hellenic names of scientists, philosophers and artists which have revolutionized
the History of our Civilization FOREVER!
Many of those great people have studied at the famous
University, and it is possible some of their theorems, concepts, and
principles were already defined into very, very old manuscripts there.
For example, take the Greek Fire invention: it is still a mystery today, because that knowledge has disappeared
when the Byzantine Empire [this is the East Roman Empire] was conquered by the Sultan Mehmed II "the Conqueror" in 1453. The great
mystery was: how did they manufacture that inflammable (unknown) mixture, because the Greek Fire
ignited by itself violently in contact with the atmospheric oxygen? Those ancient people had no means
of working in
a vacuum, or in a controlled inert-gas environment.
Well! Around 570 BC,
the city-state Athens started being ruled according to the democratic principles,
but things didn't work very
well. Democracy proved to be too slow and too weak to implement tough measures in time of crises.
The king Phillip II
of Macedon defeated the Athenian democracy, and then the League of Corinth was formed in 337 BC, therefore ending the
Government of our History.
Hellenic Civilization reaches its peak of power during the meteoric life of
Alexander the Great
(356 BC to 323 BC). During his ten years of campaigns in Asia, Alexander the Great was accompanied by Greek
scientists, and they have described fairly well the existing people in Asia, and their cultures. We
shall use that
knowledge to build the Global Picture we need, a little bit later.
Civilization continues up to 700 AD; however after 300 BC a new power started rising on the
stage: Roman Civilization. To us, the most important thing about
the Romans is, they formed a
in 501 BC, but that form of government couldn't last for too long. In 49 BC,
Gaius Julius Caesar proclaimed
himself a Dictator, and the roman citizens supported him: they were simply fed up with
despite the fact that Democracy proved to be the most fertile ground for intellectuals, history shows us that it cannot
last for too long since it is destroyed by corruption, injustice, imposture, and political immobility.
words Democracy ends up by destroying itself! [Sounds familiar?]
We shall come back to that important Roman Empire, because they were excellent engineers, first of all—remember
their famous, secret, roman cement formula. However, time has come to study
the most perplexing historical
phenomenon of all times: HUMAN MIGRATIONS!
We went over the Internet for about three hours trying to find a nice timeline for
the waves of migratory people,
but we couldn't discover any. The information on this topic is scarce, incomplete, and divided into very many
individual subjects. However, our interest is the Global Picture of those migrations, because if we take things individually we
cannot see/understand anything.
The problem is this: beginning in 300 BC up to 600 AD, tens of migratory people
waves came into Europe and N.
Africa from Asia. They came by the hundreds of thousands, and by the millions, each having a specific language,
a characteristic culture, and even unique genes (genetic characteristics):
the mystery of mysteries is the fact that they
came from . . . NOWHERE!
Yes, History tells us they
came from Asia, but there is no place in Asia where they actually started each particular culture—and mind this
please: each of those cultures was very rich in folklore, scientific knowledge, and even in particular divine
beliefs. Further, note that all those migratory people are exactly YOU, and
Adolf Hitler was very much interested to "prove" the supremacy and the unique characteristics of the
race, therefore he sent many teams of historians and archeologists to discover the very roots of the German
people. Their conclusion was, the Germans have started their migration from
"SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN"—nobody knows
where from exactly.
So, the Germans have started their migration, millions of them and in
major waves (Cimbris, Gots,
Visigots, Ostrogots, Angles, Saxons, Jutes), having a particular German language, unique legends, unique customs and everything a culture
needed, from SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN!
Exactly the same thing happened with the Scandinavian people—the Normans. They came with their blue eyes and
golden hair, with particular genes, with their belief in Odin and many other strange Gods, and with exceptional
knowledge in building and sailing wooden boats (as never before in our
History) from ... SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN!
To end this, let's list a few more names of migratory people: Celts, Huns, Vandals—all Latin roots languages use
this word today—Avars, French, Helvets, Belgs, Sarmatians, Lombards, Bulgars, Slavic, Gepiz, Cumans, and then
Puns, Berber, Arabs, Turks, Tatars, Mongols . . . Of course, they are many more, tens of them, but important is the
idea. Amazingly, most of the above migratory people came by the millions, also from SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN! Ha, ha!
That is simply hilarious!
to this incredibly embarrassing "SOMEWHERE IN PAKISTAN" problem, most of our historian
researchers prefer wisely to avoid the subject. However, this topic is of capital importance to each of us.
It happened that
some of those migratory people have formed the European cultures we have today and,
only one thousand years later, the
History of our Civilization has evolved form chain-slavery to the modern World of today. That "quick"
evolution is a little bit too quick, if we look carefully at our ancient history timeline.
The mystery of all mysteries is, where did those migratory people came from?
We couldn't find any place in
Asia for them. However, even if there were a few birth-places, those people should have been related, somehow, in language and in
customs with the existing Asian cultures, but that is not the case.
that, during his ten years of campaigns in Asia (during 333 to 323
Alexander the Great met no Germans, no Helvets, no French, and no Normans, yet some time later they came by the
millions into Europe! Each of the migratory people had a perfectly well defined particular culture. Of course,
there are some exceptions; for example, the Arabs and Puns: they are related to the old Persians. Regardless,
there is still the problem of where did they came from, because they were just too many, and they did have some
important particularities of their own.
Now, we have no proofs and, unfortunately, history researchers refuse to
cooperate with us motivating that
they study more
important topics—some insignificant and improbable plots during the Second World War, we were told. What we can
do to explain those floods of people and their cultures is to use our logic.
For example, there is a particular
group of people living in extreme conditions: the Inuit people. Their legends say, the first Intuits have been
brought into the Canadian Northern Arctic in big birds made of copper, and they were taught how to live/survive
in that harsh environment by the Gods.
Even the Scandinavian people have their own legends saying something similar. For example, while marching west
(from "Pakistan" to the Scandinavian peninsula), the
Vikings/Normans met with Odin [a God], and he taught them how to build wooden boats, and
how to navigate
the magnetic compass. [Note that the Vikings/Normans were still in continental Asia marching west!]
Soo, Gods have something to do with those incredible apparitions of new people, new races, and
of new cultures on
our Planet from NOWHERE, and that is relatively very close to our days. Of course, we do believe in
THE GREAT CREATOR, but we do not believe in Gods, and that means those Gods must have been very much like us, only a little
bit more advanced . . . technologically. This sure sounds like pure Science Fiction,
except it is, in fact,
HISTORY! WE are the living proofs of the most incredible SF story of our
As a note, following some recent DNA tests, is has been proven that
modern European people have nothing in common with the Neolithic hunter
tribes that populated Europe 17000 years ago!
Again, we have no intention to write articles of the "unexplained" kind. However, our
own History tells us
that WE, THE PEOPLE, are very proofs of the "unexplained" phenomena! For the time being we intend to
remain suspicious, only, as we get closer to our days. Is it possible we
can discover even more facts
. . . ?
