Rewriting the history: objects out of place (Ooparts)
It is said that to understand the present it is necessary to know the past. The past that we all study in history books and that tries to explain, more or less, things like our evolution, how we got here, why things are as they are and not otherwise, etc. All the history we know is based on the agreements that historians, anthropologists, scientists, etc., take for granted based on the findings found throughout the planet When things seem to square and link between them, they are placed within the official lines of known history, and they are considered correct. When you discover things that break all the schemes, that do not fit with the officially established premises and theories and that simply should not exist, then you put them aside, they are labeled as conspiracies, etc.
The issue is that, among other things, the story that we have been told in school has many gaps, especially in regard to ancient history, and one of the most interesting things in this regard is the study of the so-called Ooparts – Out of Place Artifacts.
Out of Place Objects
The Ooparts are nothing more than archaeological discoveries, findings, objects, found things that should NOT exist where they have been found that contain information that does not fit at all with the time to which they belong (by carbon dating and other techniques), that breaks the structures of the already known by adding elements that are out of all comprehension for us, they are simply “out of place”. There are thousands, and thousands of small findings considered Ooparts, and among them what I want to show you now, are the maps.
Personally I love cartography, I have a map that measures three meters per one and a half meters on the wall of my office and I spend hours looking at it. I am fascinated by the world I live in and for the places I still do not know. It is not surprising that when maps are classified as objects, they arouse my interest. Let’s see some maps..
The map of Piri Reis, from 1513
It is the best known map “without explaining” because it shows 20 years before the official history “proclaimed” it the complete map of North America, South America, Greenland and Antarctica. The interesting thing is that the Antarctica was not discovered until 1820, and America was discovered until 1492. In addition, the map correctly shows the lengths of landmasses, even when the concept of length was only discovered after 1700.
Piri Reis was a Turkish admiral who also had a passion for maps, and it is said in his notes that he relied on much older maps found in the libraries of Constantinople.
It is also said that Colon had a copy of this map when he began his journey towards the “discovery” of America.
The map of Orontius Finaeus, from 1531
This map is also super interesting, it was found in 1960 in the Library of Congress in Washington, where it had been buried in the dust for decades, and it perfectly draws the Antarctic coast and the rivers that are now completely covered by tons of ice (but they do exist). It also shows the Antarctica completely free of ice with a detailed description of the Ross Sea, which is today completely frozen and hidden under a layer of several hundred meters of ice water. The analyzes in the ice area calculate that it was thawed 4000 years ago in one of the successive glacial eras.
The map of Bouche, from 1737
Another map that shows the Antarctica, but this time as two completely separate masses of land, with precise details on the coastlines. When the continent was discovered, this map was considered completely erroneous for a long time, until in 1958, during a seismic study it was discovered that indeed, the Antarctic are two landmasses, two archipelagos of islands covered by a layer of ice that make it seem as a single landmass. However, the surface below the ice matches exactly with the map of Bauche. Since this continent is estimated to have been frozen for more than 10,000 years in successive glaciations, it is difficult to know how anybody could have such knowledge of the place 40 years even before this was discovered.
There are some other equally interesting maps and information “out of place” by the time on where they were created and to the history we know, the Franco Rosselli map from 1508, the Mercator map from 1538, etc. And there are not only Ooparts in cartographic issues, another impressive section is the archaeological findings of objects that, a priori, they are where they should not be, but I’ll tell you more about that in another post. For all the lovers of the Ooparts, I recommend the book “Earths Forbidden Secrets” by Maxwel Igan. It is a box of surprises all that is out there in the world, but the “science” does not want to touch for precaution.
