But many of the Dogon symbols that define this structure are among Jung's archetypes - we see them in cultures everywhere. So the suggestion was that I was looking at multiple incarnations of a single, originally scientific system. So I began looking for ways to correlate words, symbols, concepts and practices between cultures. It helped that the Dogon words were a match for Egyptian hieroglyphic words, and the structure of their cosmology was a match for the cosmology of a Buddhist stupa.
Eventually I had made comparisons to half a dozen different cultures who seemed to share elements of the same tradition - enough so that, through cross-comparison, I could pin-point original meanings.
All of that pointed back to some common archaic source that was scientific. The claim of several cultures was that deliberate instruction had happened at some remote locale, comparable to Gobekli Tepe. Efforts to link symbolism from that site forward to the other cultures pointed to specific traditions and philosophies, whose outlook is reflected in the later traditions.
Because descriptions of the stages of matter all seem to be scientifically correct, the best presumption is that descriptions of the foundations that lead to the formation of matter, which also seem scientifically reasonable, are also correct.
