OUR HYPOTHESIS: HISTORY AS DESCRIBED IN SURVIVING CHRONICLES ONLY BEGINS
IN CA. THE X CENTURY A.D. We know nothing of the events that took place before the X century A.D.
Let us summarize somewhat. The disintegration of the global chronological map - i.e. the "Scaligerian textbook" of ancient history - that we discovered leads to a very important assertion. Namely, nearly the entire part of the Scaligerian textbook preceding 900 or 1000 a.d. consists of phantom duplicates. Their mediaeval originals are in the time interval of 900-1600 a.d. In particular, each event described by the Scaligerian textbook preceding 900 a.d. is a sum of several (mostly, two, three, four) later mediaeval events. In order to determine the exact years of those events, we need to draw a vertical segment on the global chronological map and mark the events that it would intercept on four chronicle lines Sp S2, S3, S4. In other words, the Scaligerian textbook is a stratified chronicle pasting together four virtually identical pieces shifted in relation to one another.
The "Scaligerian textbook" contains no unexpected duplicates starting with the XVI century a.d. and later. Certain phantom duplicates do exist in the time interval between 900 and 1300 a.d., such as the module S, q.v. in fig. 6.55. Its mediaeval original, namely, the Empire of Habsburgs (Nov-Gorod?), supercedes 1300
а.d. In particular, the part of the Scaligerian textbook describing the period between 1000-1300 a.d., is a "sum", or a collation of two chronicles: a certain actual chronicle describing real events of 1000-1300 a.d. (that chronicle must have been fairly scanty), and an actual chronicle describing the events of the Habs-burg epoch of 1300-1600.
In general, the outline for the global chronology of Europe was created in the XVI-XVII century, in the works of J. Scaliger and D. Petavius. It is here that the last period S ends, having gone back in time due to chronological errors and spanning the phantom "ancient" duplicates - this is very important. See letters 5 on the Scaligerian chronological map, fig. 6.55, fig.
б.56, fig. 6.57 and fig. 6.58. We shall reiterate that the entire Scaligerian chronological map is actually a stratified document. Many events considered "antique"
nowadays are actually made up of certain later mediaeval events described in the descended chronicles S2, S3, S4 identified with the chronicle S1. The application of our empirico-statistical methods to the period of 1600-2000 a.d. has detected no phantom duplicates, which proves the chronological outline of 1600-2000 to be reliable as a whole. The "Scaligerian textbook" originated from a shorter chronicle S0 as a result of chronological errors that we refer to later, as well as, apparently, intentional distortions of the mediaeval history. See Chrons, Chron6, Chronz.
The effect that we discovered might possibly be explained in two ways. One is that all reiterated parallelisms we found are sets of accidents. From this "accidental" stance, we can estimate the probability of all the coincidences that we discover. This is what we have done on the basis of statistical methods. The probability thereof turned out to be fairly small, which allows us to put forth the hypothesis that all repeating coincidences that we have discovered are by no means accidental.
This brings us to the second explanation we believe to deserve a closer study. The discovered disintegration of the Scaligerian textbook into the sum of four short chronicles is not accidental at all. Quite the opposite, we have come across traces of a fairly deliberate creation of artificially elongated "history", which the chronologists of the XVI-XVII century were actively involved in.
The division of the Scaligerian "history textbook" into four short chronicles gives us a preliminary answer to the two following fundamental questions:
1) what was the actual history like?
2) how and why did it give birth to the "Scaligerian textbook"?
Apparently, actual history, - that is, the history described in written sources that have reached to our time, - begins from ca. the X-XI century a.d. and on. Facts preceding the X century are fairly scanty, located between 300-1000 a.d. Virtually all epochs placed by the Scaligerian textbook before the X century a.d. are various phantom reflections of the events of the X-XVI century a.d. The Biblical story - that is, all the events of both the Old and the New Testament - fits into the interval between the X century a.d. and XVI century a.d.
AUTHENTIC HISTORY ONLY BEGINS IN XVII CENTURY A.D. The history of the XI-XVI century is largely distorted. Many dates of the XI-XVI century require correction
The chronological outline, q.v. in fig. 6.55, leads to the need for "shifting" certain events of the X-XIII century forwards by approximately 330 or 360 years, since these could be the events of the Habsburg epoch of the XIV-XVII century. Furthermore, fig. 6.55 proves that the Scaligerian datings can be relied upon from the beginning of the XVII (seventeenth!) century a.d. only. The history of the XIV-XVT century is largely distorted. The alteration of dates might not be as considerable as in the earlier epochs; however, the Scaligerian school introduced major distortions into the interpretation of many important events of the XIV-XVI century. We shall describe them in Chrons, Chron6, Chronz. Finally, the actual count of "years of our time" starting from 1053 a.d., and not from the "rounded date of 1000 a.d.", might add at least 50 years to the dates of books considered published in the XV-XVI century. The same applies to the dates of life of kings, military commanders, writers, poets, painters and sculptors who had lived in the XIV-XVI century. Many of them may have lived 50 years closer to our time.
