With the next several blog posts I will demonstrate how it appears that the mosaic known as the Seven Sages of Greece, buried in the 79 AD eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, is a message of how the Earth is spherical and where the key cities are located and where the limits of the empire were located at that date.
Through a couple of months of manipulation of various qualities of this picture, it appears that the following places are indicated: York latitude 53.8°, Purpuraires 31.5°, Rome 41.9°, Apsaros 41.6°, Antioch 36.2°, Alexandria 31.2°, and Kom Ombo 24.5°.
In our emerging world of lies, where even easily proven evidence-based ideas are discounted as uninteresting in the face of fabulous fabrications of simple-minded nonsense, this complex set of relationships will be seen as absurd. However, I maintain that the creators of the mosaic were the strange ones and I am only strange in that I have pursued their game so assiduously.
The classic Romans and Greeks were in pursuit of testable ideas like the circumference of our spherical Earth.
