      25 LexiLine 2013 Upper Mesopotamia: Astronomy of Ancient Sites

      Dear Lexiliners,

      Two significant maps are found on the inside front and back covers

      of Klaus Schmidt's book about Göbekli Tepe,

      Sie bauten die ersten Tempel

      (extensive material in English at TempleStudy.com)

      and both maps are useful

      to demonstrate the land survey

      of ancient Upper Mesopotamia

      by astronomy.

      See reviews of that book in English by Claus-Peter Wirth and Jona Lenderig.

      We have redrawn those two maps below and have added our own labeling and astronomical identification of each geographic location as we think it served land survey purposes according to the hermetic teaching "as above, so below", i.e. where we think the pre-existing "map" of the heavens above was used to map the earth below.


      In those days, you could not walk down to the store and buy a map of an area, but people still had to be oriented and get around, so the stars were a logical choice as a map model. We find that to be nearly self-evident.

      Decipherment of the Ancient Sites of Upper Mesopotamia

      as Land Survey by Astronomy


      The Overall Decipherment Map:

      • (top of map below)
        Upper Mesopotamian locations 10h to 9th millennium B.C. as listed on Klaus Schmidt's map (this is our independent redrawing and labeling)
      • (bottom of map below)
        Upper Mesopotamian locations 10h to 7th millennium B.C. as listed on Klaus Schmidt's map (this is our independent redrawing and labeling)

      Of course, the astronomical identifications are ours alone and have nothing to do with the archaeological content of Schmidt's book, which does not have the term astronomy in its index.

      Archaeology is an "earth" science and archaeologists still do not recognise that the ancients used the stars to map their earthly locations. See megaliths.net for a detailed discussion of how ancient megaliths served land survey purposes via astronomy.

      This posting and the map below will be followed by explanatory postings about some of the most important of these locations from an astronomical land survey point of view:

      As one can see from the above map, we have, among others, made the following identities of ancient locations and stars of the heavens (please note that we do not like to use diacritical markings and do not use them here in this short list because various programs and browsers do not render these correctly, leading to unnecessary confusion and false textual representation. In general, we do not support diacritical markings online for languages or alphabets (see on the topic of the origins of writing our book,

      Ancient Signs).


      Ancient Sites, 10th to 9th Millennium B.C.

      Cayonu - Lynx

      Kilisik - Leo Minor

      Gobekli Tepe (plus our discovered Gobekli Koyu, Asagi Gobekli), Urfa, and perhaps Sefer Tepe, Karahan, Hamzan Tepe - Cancer

      Akarcay, Tell Abr, Djade, Jerf el Ahmar, Cheik Hassan, Mureybet (Regulus) - Leo Major

      Hallan Cemi, Kortik Tepe, Demirci, Nemrik, Qermez Dere -Gemini


      Ancient Sites, 10th to 7th Millennium B.C.

      Ali Kosh - Taurus (Aldebaran)

      Jarmo - Auriga

      Hacilar (Alkaid), Suberde (Mizar), Catal Hoyuk (Alioth), Musular, Asikli Hoyuk, Kosk Koyuk - all mark the main stars of the Big Dipper of Ursa Major (note that Turkish Catal means "fork" - the Big Dipper then ?)

      Gobekli Tepe - Cancer

      El Kowm - Leo Major (Regulus)

      Jericho, Ain Ghazal, Jawa - Virgo (Jawa marked the star ZaviJAVA)

      Palmyra - Hydra (Alphard)

      Beidha (near Petra and the Snake Monument), Ba'ja, Basta - Hydra the Serpent

      Helwan - Antares in Scorpio the "red star" - Saqqara = Siqor

      We post subsequently about some of these ancient sites and will show how they mark stars of the heavens. Those postings may not come immediately and may be sporadic, because it takes enormous amounts of time to write them up decently. For those who have an interest in looking at maps and materials online, Ali Kosh and surrounding locations (Taurus and Aldebaran) and El Kowm (Leo Major and Regulus) provide some nice examples. But it is now summer and time for golf, if the weather holds. God (and the stars) willing ;-).

      Enjoy,

      Andis
