As the Sabians a.ka. Phoenicians, etc. planted their religion all over the world, they left certain names that appear to never change over the ages. Naturally, in the land of the Incas, we'll find Sabianism under the name of Sapa or Saba. Their legends will talk of their origins from a place called Inti (Indus Valley) Among the O'odhams of Southern Arizona, we'll find the place where they assembled in ancient days to discuss political and religious issues, Sobai Puri, which is now the San Pedro river. They call their way of life "Himday." Even today, in India, the Hindu religious and political assemblies are called Sabha. They call their way of life Hindu, a term which we mistakenly apply to "religion."
Doug, not one thing I discuss and write about is original with me. All I did was to read - and agree with - the works of all Hindus and Westerners who have noticed that certain words in human languages seem never to change, along with the functions they represent. Once mankind understands this, he'll have broken the code of human language, for language and psyche are one and the same. The human mind, along with its vast collection of thoughts, ideas, and ramblings, is nothing more, nothing less, than one's own soul. It's a mirror of what each of us is. Right now, some Jewish writers have used computer analysis to notice this code in the Torah. Someday, they'll realize, through computer analysis, that this code is present in every utterance of mankind - even in children's stories. The reason why we can't see this is because of the tendency of the human mind to cling to mental conditionings, etc.
About human civilizations being unique, developing their own uniqueness independent of other nations. This is simply NOT true. Human civilization develops and spreads ALWAYS through international trade and religious propagation - in short, exchange of ideas. We first start with commerce; religion follows in the wake of commerce.
