And therefore, I'm suggesting the symbolic masks might have been made by a more recent people who may have attempted to interpret that T shape and relate it to what they presumed its significance was. And I suspect those people might be the same ones who assembled these T pillars in the present configuration they were discovered in, which I believe was not original based on Robert Schoch's observations."
We all experience bias to some extent in favour of our own theories. That’s why keeping an open mind is such a difficult exercise. And pragmatism might not be understood to exclude symbolism or spirituality from a discussion, but another subject altogether.
To reject the evidence of the masks found at the feet of pillars at Gobekli Tepe as being put there by other, later people in imitation of them is a tad far-fetched in my every-so-slightly biased opinion.
The reason I intervened at the start of your blog was because the symbolic importance, and thus the spiritual connection, was to be set aside for the purpose of exploring, not a pragmatic, but a purely practical purpose for the place. That premise was unstable in my (pragmatic) view, and I pointed that out. Since then, I’ve learned that my theory of the T-shape as a stylized nose and eyebrows, with the Sumerian meaning attached to it of “spirit” (or “being” and “divine properties enabling cosmic activities” as the Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary puts it) has been supported by the best possible evidence, the existence there of numerous masks showing exactly that. The entry in the Tepetelegrams website actually dares to mention that they are T-shaped, very daring indeed!
Anyway, I won’t take up any more space on the subject here. The vibrational, musical aspect of the place is an interesting one, however much we diverge on the rest. Keep at it.
