History of the library

Western education has a strange cross hatch history

Western education began with collecting written material in the earliest of civilizations. Namely the Vinca/Vanier in Hungary, Proto-Canaan Middle east, Indus Harappa India, Egyptian, UK, etc.

In the untamed wilderness which as almost everywhere outside a campfire; it does not take long to determine cooperation with the scholars is good for any and all communities to survive.

So the evidence of the earliest civilization showing mutual cooperation is the elaborate trade routes established early on. Clothing, architecture, language, mathematics, engineering, etc are all similar. An argument can be stated that the development of civilization each step is the same; however need being the mother of invention why have multiple cultures invent the wheel separately when they can share information and develop life saving technology together.

The history of western education starts with the collection of written information in both Egypt an the middle east circa 5000 b. c. e. . Due in no small portion to wars and battles occurring the scholars figured out if they made copies of the written material, shared those copies, instructed those that they sent the copies too that they repeat the process making copies and sending the new copies to who they knew. Every time a new warlord burnt one library copies of that library would be in at least a few other locations.

Consequently as time drew out the collected works of the Middle East were eventually housed in ziggurats or towers. As battles raged copies of some of that material wound up in Egypt.

A large collection of battles the first from 4000-2500 raged; destroying a large volume of libraries in the Middle East and Egypt.

Another large collection of battles and natural disasters occurring from the point of the thera volcanic eruption 1628-800 b. c. e. . Devastated a large amount of both infrastructure and the library needed to rebuild.

Second a great library was starting to grow in Egypt at the same time a great library system was growing in the eastern Mediterranean. Specifically in the Middle East, Anatolia Turkey, and the Aegean. As Alexandra the great started to conquer his territory one of the most important things he did was to round up all the schloalrs and eveyr library he could to place it in one central location. Eaier to protect one thing than a thousand scattered all over. So he made himself a great library in one loction; full of as much of the great works he could get as possible.

This allowed for scholars from the entire mediterranean a safe and secure location in which to go and study. Having access to collected works going back beyond the languages and currently understood cultures. The great library alexandrer created had the collected works of how the pyramids were built, as many of thesurviving ziggurats collected works, as much of the colleted works from both the antolia peninsula turkey an the Aegean. The agean and turkey collections possessed some of the most advanced engineering imaginable next to the pyramids. An argument can be made for the engineering of the three to be from the same exact sources; the only difference being in the architectural variations.

What happened next is a tragedy of mythic proportions. Instead of allowing the great library to remain open to any and all citizen scholars. The Romans conquered Egypt a few hundred years later and carted the entire Alexandra library off to Rome. Knowledge it power.

The Romans burnt the building to the ground after removing the collected works.

A few hundred years later the collected works were then locked behind the secret Vatican library as the stranglehold of the Vatican and the next dark ages began its 300-1900 year “death. Death. Death to all who oppose us” reign.

Fortunately for western scholars emperor Constantine becoming emperor in York UK; Constantine knew full well the value of knowledge and the power achievable through the proper application of said know2elge.

So as he came to power, he ordered the great library in Rome; before the Vatican could seize too much power and had it shipped to a great city he was about to build on a previous great city. The newly named Constantinople would house both the renamance of the great library of Alexandra but the collected works of the Byzantium empire (renamed after converting rome to Christianity; then moving the capital from Rome to his newly christened city) from 300-1000 c. e.  when the Chinese advanced with the cannon and threatened the most advanced civilization in all of Rome (previous cultures were more advanced). The scholar started again making copies of the collected works of Rome and what they managed to cobble together from both Egypt and the middle east again in the centuries and millennia since Alexandra forced the collected works to a building that would be burned to the ground less than 300 years after his death.

The Constantinople scholars started sending copies off to roman/Vatican empire cities starting around 600 ce. Eventually the Vatican became wise to the actions; the political power elite quickly moved to negotiate with the Vatican to partially remove the heresy laws against all reading by non Vatican tried priests. A structure of academics within the guilds system was eventually agreed upon. Provided the education was Vatican based with a papal bull for every academia approved of. Starting with Bologna 1088, Edinburgh officially 1582 (unofficially most of the Kingdom of Northumberland library remained intact, just no official Papal Bull until 1582.), Oxford 1096, Salamanca 1134, Paris 1150 (another city which did not lose its library, but had to wait to receive papal permission to allow non Vatican and royals entry), Bohemia 1348, Heidelberg 1386, etc.

Slowly European scholars stared to crawl out of the Vatican imposed dark ages. Which leaves the problem of gaining an understanding of the origins of the library collections of the west when the collected works had to change through so many different hands, languages, cultures, power struggles, politicians (who insistence on copies being written according to their philosophy), and the ever present fear of execution the scholars faced.

Attempting to translate information from collected works about the building of the great pyramids takes an understanding of all the above plus the following.

A proto-Canaan sentence, translated into Sumerian, than Egyptian, then into akkadian, Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek, Latin, German, old English, middle English, kings English, then into modern English takes a great deal of effort. For those scholars that insist on documentation or the event did not take place find themselves in the enviable position being able to deny the width and breadth of cultures simply because their libraries were both burned to the ground and traces are buried inside close to impossible to translation documentation from later cultures.
