Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Very interesting read, especially if Geography, history, and mathmatics interest you. It's kind of a blend between autistic over analysis, schizo theorizing, and actual hard science. Basically the author believes that a lot of old and ancient maps and cartography techniques and the such are evidence of an advanced ancient civilization and/or that many ancient civilzations were much more advanced cartographers and navigators than we give them credit for.

Not sure how true or false a lot if the theory is. (I initially found out about the book in my universities library so perhaps there is an ounce of truth to it). That aside though the book gives a lot of insight into how early cartography techniques and the such worked. Its only $25 online which Isn't bad for like a textbook amount of content.

    more like he was an outcast because he schizoposted 24/7 and called everyone who disagreed with said schizoposts narcissists
  • SolidStateSurvivor:
    Honestly if he was less combinative about his assumptions he would've been tolerated most likely
  • SolidStateSurvivor:
    I still don't get the whole Jesuit thing tho
  • mydadiscar:
    yeah tbh i found his schizoposts interesting it was just how much of a dick he was about it
  • mydadiscar:
    the thing is about schizoposting is usually its just something you hear about or you see being parodied/memed
  • mydadiscar:
    so i find it interesting to look at unironic schizoposting
  • wearyinternettraveler:
    it's a rare art
  • ?!MemoryHead!?:
    schizopost is just latin for something normies cannot or dont want to accept
  • Sass Mate:
    The word "truth" is actually a shorthand for schizopost
