04.10.2022, New findings on Antarctic cartography

My speech about mysterious Antarctic maps at the beginning of the 16th century.

The main speaker was of course again the founder of the A.A.S. Erich von Daniken.

At the joint panel discussion, all speakers were available to answer questions from the audience. The focus, however, was on questions about the mysterious Antarctic maps. They stimulate enormous speculation because they cannot be explained by our current knowledge.

In the background the Pirí-Reis map (1507). It is the only map that contains an imprint that makes ancient sources and maps responsible for the creation of the areas in the far west and south. Is it all coincidence or is it alien after all?

At this year's One Day Meeting 2022, I presented my latest work about geo-referencing of the Antarctic coasts for the first time. This research took place between 2012 to 2016. Unfortunately, the blatant allegations made by Dr. Zahi Hawass prematurely ended my habilitation at the TU Dresden in 2017.

Nevertheless, by then our team (Dr. Andreas Bruschke and Prof. Manfred Buchroithner and others) had collected a number of new facts that certain maps and globes from the early modern period show geographical image content about the shape and location of Antarctica that could not have been generated at this time. This early phase of geography is now known as puzzle cartography and lasted from 1490 to around 1565.

On October 1st, 2022, the A.A.S. invited me for the fourth time to Bad Goegging near Ingolstadt. There, I presented the joint research results, which raise considerable doubts about current historical research. The near-accurate depictions of Antarctic coastlines on maps between 1518 and 1565 do not fit our understanding of early cultural societies. The reasons are that it was considerably cooler in the early 16th century than it is today and of course, the astronomical and cartographic skills were insufficient. They raise cultural-historical questions that we cannot currently answer.

That we have no solutions to these prehistoric and protohistoric problems does not detract from the fact of their existence. The audience responded with great interest to this new research. If you are interested in the topic, I recommend my book about the mysteries of the history of discovery.
