Origin of the "Little Dark Age" / Hyperborea meme?

Circling back to this, would Hyperborea and Schizowave be the same thing?

the hyperborea and spinning black sun comes straight from rw twitter circles, but then it all got mixed up with the "lore" meme and the "little dark age" ones too, but the hyperborea aspect 100% from twitter.

I'm curious if anyone interacted with these memes before:

I believe above is the first I was suggested on Youtube a few months ago. A few weeks after I got really confused by the video, I noticed people discussing it on 4chan. I noticed a lot of it was focused to /x/ however the videos also had /pol/, /b/, and /gif/ influences. Any thoughts? Anyone seen it before these Youtube suggestions started mentioning it a few months back? Is it just a meme that escaped the HOI4 community from a Hyperborea mod?


Other examples:

This was a thing on 4chan for a while. The whole esoteric/schizo thing got old fast, but they haven't seemed to let it go since last I was on the boards.

The original (at least I think it was the original) 46-second edit of the song with animated 19th century paintings is really well-made and totally apolitical, but for some reason it has completely disappeared from the internet. There's a compressed webm that still gets posted on /wsg/ and a copy uploaded to somebody's Facebook page, but that's it. For a while there was a "extended version" up on Youtube made by someone who clearly wasn't the original creator (the new animations weren't as good and the paintings were in a different style) but even that's disappeared and it's impossible to search for either thanks to the thousands of derivative wojak edits. I'm pretty sure that this is all because the original creator was on Instagram, TikTok, or some other platform that discourages people from downloading videos they like.

Sorry for necro-ing this thread, but I have this version if you still want it. It's compressed to shit which is unfortunate because the original portion has a lot of small text that is now illegible.
