...we watched all around us...all the flora and fauna and insects and opportunities in the waters. I know of monkeys that like to swim, hold their breath underwater while they seek out fruits fallen from trees and out of reach of other creatures and birds. That didn't just occur in our lifetime of observing them but is aeons old. I know of termites that build mounds which are orientated north-south so they have less sun heating the mounds during the hottest part of the day, and they have certain plants and fungus and insects in side that allow for a natural air conditioning system as well as farming practices. Millions of years-old ability.
But an unknown stone-age culture that has not been discovered? Isn't that a kind of double-negative? What ever hasn't been discovered yet is still in the ground and yet to be brought to light. Ah...but what did those we know about actually do besides leave remnants behind?
Can you tell what a group were doing in a cave based upon some wall paintings, trinkets and tokens, jewellery or burial practices? Neither can I, but we can possibly link them to other folk else where who did similar things, so similar and within traveling distance that it would upend archaeology if we were to consider that widespread peoples developed either exact-same or very similar practices independently. Sorry...should I mention the Ubaid influences in so many areas?
Or how about the Polynesian effects upon maritime exploration and population groups on so many Pacific islands, even as far as Easter Island and skeletal remains in South America?
Yeah, folk did indeed travel, and took their knowledge and abilities with them...and improved what they knew and could do by investing themselves into their environments. And then we get to AE and what they ended up doing once they had the man-power to do it...they certainly had plans to do things, and all the documentation has either been lost or secreted away about what those plans are all about.
So...step inside this little foray into rediscovering what some of those plans were by having a really good look at my pyramid analysis and how it identifies celestial and terrestrial overlays of knowledge into Khufu's Pyramid...then wonder how they came about that knowledge.
