It wasn't meant to be a hypothesis. It was idle speculation on my part. I thought
you might find an apparent similarity between Catal Huyuk and the Orkney's
interesting. The connection between the two is pure speculation on my part too.
What is a better hypothesis for why people would sleep on top of the dead?
