So all I am saying, is that the ancient developed world was well connected via trade routes, the silk road, both on land and sea, we have a quite clear picture of the products traded and the process they produced it. One of the oldest hubs were the Indian subcontinent. From the earliest archeological finds are clear that they used all materials available in their surroundings, had an industry of shells, had a very varied dye stuff and textile industry. The most economically rewarding of these products traded are murex dye, colorfast purples and blues. I found shiva lingams in function perfectly fitting for the procedure. The sheer number of them and mythology resembles a vast and important industry. I found references in literature and culture both ancient and living, across the globe. In this surrounding, Soma, after reading the texts relating to it became a very good candidate, fitting.
