Friends, in one of the old threads about the Gobekli shapes, I made the case for them picturing roofs that covered the houses or animal keeps. They resemble reed huts pictured on many Inanna seal stamps. Note reeds are pictured in the foreground. Roof rope anchors were also shaped like huts, with profiles of animals. Some Gobekli flat slabs were carved like animal bodies making a hoop, for a rope

Friends, see some details of the Indian rock pavement engravings in the Konkan region here; See some detail on the Gobekli Tepe hilltop here: See a radar scan of Stonehenge landscape here: Gobekli Tepe probably dates BC 6000s, patched with some plaster made of earlier soil, and infilled with soil of BC 9000s. Gobekli's precursors are in the same region. Its culture traded for flint, prob

Indian, Persian Gulf and Arabian peninsula cultures traded, particularly in metals. See Kalyanaraman's articles on Researchgate: But most 'correspondences' between these cultures, and all cultures of all Ages, are due to subconscious re-expression of archetypal features. Culture has a limited recurrent core content repertoire, with endless stylistic variations. I use Greek, Egyptian, Arabic,

Type 10 characters include Bootes 'Farmer', plougher, herder (ecology balance 10), hunter (hunt-master 10). He is also wagoner since his prior hand at type 11p holds the type 14,13c,13,12 Ursa tail, or Wagon reign, or Plough handle. His canid in type 9c, in star lore is Lupus 'Wolf' just behind and below him. This feature was duplicated out of place at Canes Venatici 'Hunting Dogs' by Hevelius.

Yve, many Tarot authors contradict one another on the zodiac parallels of the trumps, for several reasons: the deck's conscious "programme" is partly calendric; conscious intentions tend to scramble large sets (more than about 18) and small sets (fewer than twelve, such as the ten planets); hours or decans total either 18, 24 or 32 and correspond to more than one per month; decans are p

Yve, the Cerne Abbas Giant geoglyph in Dorset, probably 1700s, is below an Iron Age fort or stock keep, thus he could be consciously inspired by a cattle or sheep herder, or by Cernunnos with staff and wheel (type 10, but this Celtic hero was probably unknown by the 1700s), or by Hercules as rude strongman who gradually matures (type 7,7g,8). If he held a skin or cape, the subconscious impulse co

Gilgamesh and Hercules are among the rash cum repentant heroes, who express a certain cluster of archetypal types in their tales of maturity. Here is an extract from my popular anthropology magazine edition themed on Hercules: Hercules’ names express types 7,7g,8 "Hercules’ personal features and names may seem random, or due to the ‘sources’ of early ‘Greek’ myth, yet his names express

Regarding Greek history v Egyptian history, David Rohl had demonstrated how Greek dates resolve the Manetho assumptions. I have just published a popular anthropology magazine demonstrating how the Peloponnesian and Greece myths and landscapes re-express universal archetypal structure. That edition incidentally confirms the former cultural integration in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean Sea to

Regarding the zodiac, it is just one medium, a set combining calendar and myth. All sets re-express archetypal structure. No medium, and no culture, is a 'source'. In Stoneprint Journal 7: Hercules, Arcadia and Greece myth maps, the Hercules Labours are revealed as partly calendric, but not a star map. Just as the calendar, and myth, and ritual, and art, and building sites, cities, regions, or pi

Nolondil and friends, spider myths help to unpack the theme of layers of reality, perception, and media, and thus of archetype as enabler and animator of nature and culture. I have just published a magazine edition to demonstrate archetype in Arcadian and Greek landscapes and myth. In a page about Hypaipa, near Ephesus (where Hercules had to serve queen Omphale as weaver and cross-dresser for a y

Seasmith, styles in architecture, art and other media are meaningless, merely part of the layer that allows appropriation of the core content. I demonstrate how archetype enables nature, consciousness layers, and meaning itself, in a chapter in Stoneprint. I think there is an extract on one of my three websites. A basic appreciation of Plato, Heidegger and Jung reveals that subconscious is not

Regarding Rome's Capitol Hill, here is a link to a short demonstration that the Capitol, like the more dense Imperial Forum, and Rome, and the Vatican City, also probably expresses the standard, universal layers of structure that all complex built sites do: For a more complex and definitive built site example, see the Delphi temple precinct or 'capitol' stoneprint, in a post on the same websi

Melissa, collective experiences and material factors shape only meaningless styling, not core content. Individuality is overrated. Marx’s ‘types’, or rather kinds of people, up-scaled feudal politics to industrial politics. It appealed to the greatest common denominator, but was as devoid of ethics as its products. In South Africa we now suffer the result of a decade of theft under a president an

Melissa, the subconscious, or the analogous plant root, is not confined to a place or time. Jung wrote 'again and again I come across the mistaken notion that archetype the collective unconscious , is assumed to be the product of collective experience. I have to emphasise that this is incorrect', or in similar words, which I cite in my books, Mindprint, and Stoneprint. The subconscious expresse

Mercurial Melissa, thank you for reminding us of Jung’s building project. It is in Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Chapter 8. He demonstrates the message that I also struggle to get across the inherent firewall that restricts and suppresses conscious knowledge of our subconscious behaviour. I paraphrase: ‘During the building work I never considered these matters… following concrete needs… I built

Mercurial /Melissa, Yes, London’s post-fire churches were rebuilt on their prior sites, which were ‘organic’, including the Saxon, Norman and Roman layers. Wren and friends wanted to impose a Sephiroth on the city but vested interests did not allow that. The only conscious ‘system’ in London, and most cities, are physical and vested dictates and compromises. Co-incidence of regular geometry angl

Mercurial, your London exploration could benefit from checking the current subconscious spatial structure or stoneprint, by using your GPS mapping skills; You call your London ramble 'a mess', but you seem to know the city well. This map could clear up your ramble. And reveal the invisible order in the apparently random chaos of competing vested interests in built sites. And if you are histor

Yes we are identical. And in numbers of about 50 or more, we are predictable. And resistant to conscious awareness of similarity and predictability. There is an algorhythm in nature and culture, as in physics and biology. The human sciences are lagging far behind due to avoiding and re-forming and politicising structuralist anthropology. Blinkers are the best camouflage.

Susan, animal speciation is a natural medium that expresses the full cycle of archetype. Symbolism, calendar, myth, astrology and all media recognise that animals are the primary expression and analogy for archetype. Species seems to 'evolve', but the hard and fast basis of speciation is niche energy resources. For example there is a niche for vultures. New World vultures are unrelated to Old Wo

Itat, in your previous post, regarding "the root of mythology is CHANGE". I have found that the root of all media is repetition of optional features. The Book of Changes of Jee Jing is based on changes between relatively stable clusters of meaning. Regarding "Our stories are manifold and plenteous," Robert Graves demonstrated that our stories worldwide have a limited repertoir

Drew, archetype does not use regular or 'sacred' geometry or numbers. Some planes of projection transform archetypal features into stereotypical format, limited to regular quanta and qualata. To coin a term. Some projections reveal part of the the physis and dighe that they acquired during projection, and part of the eternal structure of archetype. Every work, and every medium, is a partial expr

Jazzmumbles, if you string some themes of several types together, you hide the tune. As in jazz. Engicom, personalities express all the types, to different degrees. Artworks, built sites, myths and rituals express all the types, and emphasise two or three or four types. Characters in an artwork, myth, ritual, or buildings on a built site, express single characters. Drew, exploring "how we

Jung did not isolate 'twelve archetypes'. Here is a section from my book of 2016: "Carol S Pearson and Margaret Mark had defined twelve primary types of motivation, each with a set of values, meanings and personality traits. These twelve types, based on attitude tests, are divided into three sets of four personalities each; Ego, Soul, and Self sets. They are listed here without their psychol
