Last January I argued that Cathay, associated to be the archaic name for China, did not refer to China, but to another kingdom north of China, which was inhabited by white, not Asian, people. I suggest you read it first. I’ve recently discovered two claims that sort of support my argument.
One claim comes from a Chinese geochemist, Sun Weidong, who suggests that the founders of the Chinese people originated from ancient Egypt. The other is that the Terracotta Warriors may have been built with the aid of Greek artisans.
I’ll look at the Egypt connection first.
From Egypt to China?
Business Insider reports on Sun Weidong who studied Chinese literary classics. The terrain described therein supposedly matches Egypt better than China. Weidong suggests that the Hyksos may have been the progenitors of China. They were “the Western Asian people who ruled parts of northern Egypt as foreigners between the 17th and 16th centuries B.C., until their eventual expulsion.” This may be true, but then again I think Michael Tsarion has stated that the Hyksos were the Jews.
I get the impression from the article that Weidong thinks the founders of China were Asian people who lived in Egypt but migrated to China. I’m more inclined to think they were white, or whatever race the ancient Egyptians were. They came to China in much the same way as the Viracochas did in South America. They brought various social and technological advancements to the South Americans. According to Chinese myth Fuxi and Nuwa did similar things. Here’s a picture of them:
Maybe they were Reptilians, or then again maybe the snake/fish-tail is only symbolical of something, such a bloodline or DNA. I think Zeus also had a similar tail.
Then there’s the small fact that Egypt is famous for its pyramids, but there are also pyramids in China, although they’re not as famous.
I think these pieces of evidence suggest that a global interconnected culture existed in the ancient world.
Terracotta and the Greeks
The other interesting claim I found was reported by The Telegraph. They write: “An extensive study of sites in Xinjiang Province, China, have revealed European-specific mitochondrial DNA, suggesting Westerners travelled, settled and died there before and during the time of the First Emperor: 1,500 years earlier than currently accepted.” The scientists also suggest that the Terracotta statues may have been inspired by Greek art, and that a Greek sculptor may have been at the scene to aid the locals in making the statues.
The article does not explain in great detail how exactly are the statues based on Greek art, and Xinjiang isn’t really part of China as the majority of inhabitants there are the Eurasian Uyghurs. I’m also not sure how the finding of the European DNA in Xinjiang is connected to the Terracotta Warriors, as the statues are in Xian which is in Shaanxi province, which is quite far away from Xinjiang. It sounds like The Telegraph is trying to force two disconnected stories into one, the DNA discovery and alleged similarities between Greek art and the Terracotta statues. Nevertheless, if these scientists argue that white Europeans were in China 2000 years ago, I’ll still take it as supporting evidence for my Cathay-theory, even if it is a bit shaky.
Relation to Cathay
How do these stories support my idea that Cathay was not China then? They suggest that there has been kingdom north of China inhabited by white Europeans since 200 BC. The kingdom, Cathay, was destroyed probably a few centuries ago and the evidence of it was covered up by the Jesuits. Even the Wikipedia article on Cathay offers evidence of this cover-up.
Either China was already inhabited by the Chinese when the founders of their civilization came from Egypt, assuming Weidong’s hypothesis is correct, who taught them new technologies. Or the immigrants from Egypt came to China first, and the Chinese arrived later from elsewhere in Asia.
