Hello Dr Trog Yes, good point. Shaft straighteners do not have this particularity, it seems.

I also could have been an ancient spear or arrow shaft(s) straightener, with several possible diameters available and a handle on one side? Diameters seem to correspond.. native-american-tools==> "The Arrow Straightener was an extremely useful tool made from an antler" Eskimo shaft straightener: Mc Cord Museum arrow straightener _Inuit==> paleoplanet_so-called-arrow

This paper seemingly does not explain clearly how a single volcano could have triggered a worldwide event of a thousand years duration, or how a continuous chain of volcanic major events could happen simultaneously on a worldwide scale. Something must have escaped me from reading this text, for sure. Sorry. It seems that gradualists-uniformitarians are ready to believe anything local and terre

@ Aine, cladking, Lobsang, Eddie Larry, discussion about word for "mother" in "mother" language. Reminding to my suggestion of a very old worldwide artificial sacred language (at less coming from neolithic times, maybe before, and created to express astronomical/religious concepts to name places and deities, then providing words and expressions linked to Zodiac and solar-s

Your code is based on a too modern alphabet regarding history of ancient civilizations, its origins dates back to Latin. So the only possibility to be an acceptable theory would be that your code was adapted during the period of end of Roman Empire from much older scripts, like Etruscan. Even Etruscan is not so old, from 8th century BCE. Then, it cannot be really representative of pre-historical

Thank you for your precisions. Concerning "Clovis first", OK, I just thought you fostered that theory, I was wrong, no more PB. My point was more about the fact that Meggers advocated a path by sea along coasts rather than through "Beringia" ice bridge. Jomon age dates back to 14500 BCE, potteries about 10500 BCE. So I dont understand well such debate about potteries bei

Trans oceanic early navigation does not require high sophistication, less than you seem to claim. And it possibly led to trans-Pacific early contact. First, dugout canoes are totally compatible with stone tools technology. Second, more advanced concepts assembling several logs (raft) or hulls (catamaran or outrigger) may have emerged earlier than commonly thought by historians, they require no

Here are few examples of elements of what I think could have been a worlwide ancient "artificial" sacred language , which was dedicated only to concepts belonging to "astrology-astronomy-solar-lunar-spirits-souls" worships. It allowed to create names of sacred places and deities, by associating several of their concepts, giving then an expression focused at a special meaning f

I was discussing about Betty Meggers theory, which as other unconventional ones whose detiny seems to be always disproved in favour of conservative ones, for sure coincidences. So disproved by earlier potteries, ok, coming from where? Local production only? "Clovis first" as usual?

Could you just give some examples out of your book? Two interesting expressions in your post (to me) : "process of life cycle" and "concepts". Behind vocabulary and grammar, are first a major context in background (life cycle process) and from there come concepts interacting inside this context and driving the words. Once context and concepts are identified, words can be co

Hello, what was your question? Maybe I misunderstood your post. It appeared as it was to express thanks and interest, sharing same linked topics. Thank you for that, but I fear I have not much more to offer than what I exposed before. In ancient historical civilisations, old science and religion were going together and turned to the sky, sun, moon & stars were abode of gods and human souls.

I let you believe that all our History is entirely made of random events occuring by pure action of coincidences and that there has been absolutely no conspiracy at all in past centuries and millenias.

Very interesting view. Ancient civilisations carefully matched their power or religious symbols with the zodiacal astrological era they were living in. It is just a fact, a reality anybody can see when considering symbols from historical ones, such as Bull and Aries, visible in Mesopotamia or in Crete, or in Egypt with Hator and Amon for instance. Correspondance may not appear truly exact

A beginning of answer would be "gods from mythology" seen as real living and acting beings. But immediately, this is in conflict with modern science which rules out anything more or less labelled "religion", then "superstition" and "irrational". Game over.....

I regret to note that the pseudo of cladking makes you react more than the ideas I expose. I also regret that you did not notice that my answer to the debate on light bulbs leads us, trough Lotus and Serpent, to a symbol of rebirth of ascending radiant energy, the renewal of light at sunrise. Light which is represented by a wave symbol existing since neolithic times, a sine-like curve also

Thanks. I'm in line with your thoughts. Symbols and concepts are invisible inner structure of words, especially those concerning religious toponymy and theonymy, themselves related to ancient science, the Hermetic science. If you can't pass through external aspect of words, you never distinguish this inner structure and your analysis remains at the surface of things. This is the sound
