Edmond,

"if geometric shapes “certainly means something to the natives of Arizona” then you could publish a West American art and rock art dictionary. But most cultural “meaning” is subconscious, using a different lexicon and grammar." It's been done. This book is really pretty useful, in that it includes ethnographic commentary. [www.amazon.com]

I disagree that the cultural meaning is subconscious. Hopis have been reflecting upon their ceremonies, during long winter nights down in the kivas, for centuries, if not thousands of years.

"you could publish a global ancient technology dictionary" I think Crichton has done a good job with that in his book.

"If you “do not ‘do’ science”, then do not use anthropology terminology."

Why not? Someone's got to explain the scientific jargon. One need not be a scientist to do that.

From your article: "Characters expressing archetypes always have an axial grid between their eyes, as demonstrated below. Various zodiacs worldwide also express some elements of archetypal structure, but culture does not come from the sky." While as poet I enjoy the double entendre, the Hopi and Zuni elders I have talked to would be surprised to find out that their culture (e.g., katsinam or kachinas) does not come from the sky.
