Watch out, Big Jim -- curiosity only kills the cat, mercifully, but can make
humans into pariahs when it starts leading to possible answers. ;-)
That's why I have spent most of my time alone doing what I do. It's not
that I don't like sharing what I see, it's just people don't see what I see
and it causes problems. This group is the most interaction I have had and
of course there are problems. But I guess I need to deal with it. I have to
learn to explain myself more.
connection in pre-history between Turtle Island (N. America) and the Middle
East is, on the face of it, preposterous. And yet there's that pesky
molecular analysis of Egyptian mummies' hair showing traces of THC, tobacco,
There is also some info concerning Egyptian contact in Australia;
If it is true remains to be seen...
and the Grand Canyon. Six part story here;
I havent gone through it, its on my list of things to do one of these days
I guess nobody really knows nuthin' about pre-history, yet
everyone knows when something doesn't fit their notion of pre-history. Hmmm
-- and where does that notion come from? The culture of Western Civ. I
believe language IS the place to look.
Well it has always been my belief that the overview is the most important
thing to spent time finding. Once the furthest point back in time is
established, details make more sense. We see what things have BECOME as
they change. One can argue Osiris until they are blue in the face, but
Osiris was NOT part of the original story. Osiris and Isis were latter
additions. Then the question becomes why? Who tampered with history?
BTW -- the Meru Foundation <www.meru.org>, I believe, is firmly behind the
notion that Hebrew letters are visually encoded hand shapes -- sign
I remember seeing that a while back. Although they have no seeming bearing
on the more ancient signs. Of course I could be wrong...I wasnt looking for
a connection then.

Yes -- and so would I! I've been trying for years to get the Blackfoot
researcher to let me see it again. I'm now in email contact with him and
seeing him again once every few years, so I hope he'll share soon.
That would be very interesting....

???? that early?
According to the archeological info Gimbutas gives in her "Language of the
Goddess" she gives dates that far back. Most of the other representations
are 5000-2000ish bc. or there abouts if I remember right. I'd have to look.
Native American's did a fairly good job preserving their history. If they
remembered the last destruction why not other things from that period. And
language is used everyday.

OH ... MY ... GOD !!! That is EXACTLY the way a Blackfoot woman described
what we call (1st, 2nd, 3rd) *person* -- or pronouns -- in Algonkian
languages: "there's no ME -- there's stuff coming toward (me) and going away
from (me), but no *me*." What we call their pronoun affixes are really
energy directional vectors -- like the difference in "John is easy/eager to
please," with different vectors.
Phew...that's some concept. As indications show your system is older than
mine it should be interesting finding out the details of what happened.
Between your system and the development of mine there was a world wide
catastrophe starting around 14,000 bc and moving onward to a new
beginning. Indications are the two systems seemed to have coexisted for
quite some time.

Wish I could. I've got someone checking some things for me. Maybe we can
recreate what I saw.
Hope so :-)
The End is near....Something plural this way comes.
Have a nice day :-)
