Excavations being conducted at the ancient city of Göbeklitepe in Turkey have uncovered an ancient pictograph on an obelisk which researchers say could be the earliest known pictograph ever discovered.

A pictograph is an image that conveys meaning through its resemblance to a physical object. Such images are most commonly found in pictographic writing, such as hieroglyphics or other characters used by ancient Sumerian and Chinese civilizations. Some non-literate cultures in parts of Africa, South America and Oceania still use them.

“The scene on the obelisk unearthed in Göbeklitepe could be construed as the first pictograph because it depicts an event thematically” explained Director of the Şanlıurfa Museum, Müslüm Ercan, to the Hurriyet Daily News . Ercan is leading the excavation at Göbeklitepe. “It depicts a human head in the wing of a vulture and a headless human body under the stela. There are various figures like cranes and scorpions around this figure. This is the portrayal of a moment; it could be the first example of pictograph. They are not random figures. We see this type of thing portrayal on the walls in 6,000-5,000 B.C. in Çatalhöyük [in modern-day western Turkey].”

The artifacts discovered in the ancient city have provided information about ancient burial traditions in the area in which bodies were left in the open for raptors such as vultures to consume. According to Mr Ercan, this enabled the soul of the deceased to be carried into the sky. It was called “burial in the sky” and was depicted on the obelisks in Göbeklitepe. Such rituals were conducted in and around the city around 12,000 years ago.
Many of the items discovered on the site have not been seen before anywhere else in the world and thus are the first of their kind to be discovered.

Göbeklitepe is situated on the top of a hill about 15 kilometres away from Sanliurfa in South-eastern Turkey. The city can be dated back to 10,000 BC and consists of a series of circular and oval shaped structures that were first excavated by Professor Klaus Schmidt supported by the German Archaeological Institute. Schmidt travelled to the site having heard about it from accounts of other previous visits by anthropologists from the University of Chicago and Istanbul University in the 1960’s. Both institutions ignored the site, believing it to be nothing more than a medieval graveyard.

Artifacts found on the site indicate that the city was intended for ritual use only and not as a domain for human occupation. Each of the 20 structures consists of a ring of walls surrounding two T-shaped monumental pillars between 3 metres (9 feet) and 6 metres high (19 feet) and weighing between 40 and 60 tons.

Archaeologists believe these pillars are stylised representations of human beings because of the human appendages carved into the stone. These images are accompanied by those of animals including foxes, snakes, wild boars, cranes and ducks.

The archaeologists believe Göbeklitepe was used as a religious centre. Geo-radar work has revealed evidence of 23 temple structures in the area. Two of the obelisks in the city were constructed in the form of a letter T and are positioned opposite each other within a circle of smaller, round obelisks.

Ercan said that the museum at Şanlıurfa contains a small sculpture of a pig that was discovered in front of the central stelas in the ‘C’ temple at Göbeklitepe. Such statues may have depicted sacred beings.

Work on the basic infrastructure of a roof to cover the site and help preserve its structures and artefacts has just been completed, ready for the construction of the roof itself. This is an EU project and the archaeologists aim to complete it in eight months’ time.

A History Of Our Universe

At least it seemed that way, mainly because we were observing a stream of consciousness – a psychic download – that was posing many questions about the relationship between the nature of time and the history of our universe. The information came from a channeling of the Sirian Elders, a 6 th dimensional group consciousness from the Sirius binary star system but before we share their message, my left brain wanted to search for validation. Of course it had to be that I would quickly find a few recent news items that serve as bread crumbs along a trail, right back to the Elder’s message. What is validation for me is context for you and we present it here, as a guide to what will follow:

Over the last year or two, there have been numerous, full or partial revelations that would challenge the actual age of what is supposed to be our 6,000 year civilization.

Gobeklitepe: Archeologists working at this site in Turkey have found the remains of an ancient city. “Excavations have uncovered an ancient pictograph on an obelisk which researchers say could be the earliest known pictograph ever discovered. Göbeklitepe is situated on the top of a hill about 15 kilometres away from Sanliurfa in South-eastern Turkey. The city can be dated back to 12,000 BC and consists of a series of circular and oval shaped structures that were first excavated by Professor Klaus Schmidt, supported by the German Archaeological Institute. 1

Bosnian Pyramids: Since originally discovered in 2005, over 400,000 people have visited the sites, three large hills that some claim hide the largest pyramid on Earth… (with) reports by the BBC, Associated Press… and ABC’s Nightline (which reported that thermal imaging had “apparently” revealed the presence of man-made, concrete blocks beneath the valley). 2

“The most important news is the determination of the precise age of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun. After radiocarbon dating (a sample) which was found beneath concrete blocks of the pyramid, it is confirmed (that) the age (of the sample is) 29,000 years, plus or minus four hundred years. It is confirmed that this is the oldest pyramid in the world.” 3

Antarctic Disclosure: are there remnants of an ancient civilization, miles below the ice? If you believe reports in London’s Daily Mail or the whistleblowers who have been interviewed by writer David Wilcock, scientists have been aware of something beneath the Antarctic ice for many years “We appear to have four layers of awesome stuff in Antarctica that we will soon be hearing about in an official disclosure. These layers are spread out in a total of about three and a half miles of vertical space, from bottom to top. The first, oldest, bottom layer is from the Ancient Builder Race. It could be 1.8 billion years old, if not more. It is a vast, underground facility inside the continental landmass of what is now Antarctica, beneath the ice.”4

Nemisis – the theory of our second sun. “Nemesis is a theoretical second sun in our solar system, a dwarf star named after the Greek goddess of vengeance.”5 According to the theory, “every twenty-six million years the orbit of Nemesis brings it through the Oort cloud, a mass of comets and debris out on the far reaches of space.”6 The dwarf star causes havoc, sending everything in its path hurtling toward the inner planets in a rain of destruction that can last decades.

The theory of a second sun in our solar system is not as bizarre as it might sound. Binary star systems (two stars orbiting the same center of mass) are quite common. In fact, Alpha Centauri, our solar system’s nearest neighbor, is a binary system. Astronomers estimate that around half of all stars in our galaxy have at least one companion. Therefore, the existence of Nemesis would not be surprising at all, at least statistically.” 7

Did other ancient civilizations exist on Earth before us? Could we be living in a binary star system? Is the focus of our thinking too narrow? It is with these possibilities in mind that we now shift to the words of the Sirian Elders. Use your discernment and try to sense if the information in the words resonate for you or jar your cosmic memory from this or other lifetimes.

“We are the Sirian Elders. We are a group consciousness that calls to you through the frequency of the Great Pyramid. As the life force of the Pharaoh’s left the planet and returned to their celestial homes through the alignment of the pyramid and the constellations so too does the information we wish to impart to humanity return in a similar fashion. Many are tuned into this frequency, as it is one of pure love. The knowledge that we assist in releasing is within you, encoded in your DNA. It is not only the history of your planet, but a galactic and universal knowledge beyond what has been ever been revealed before this moment in time.

There is a solar and galactic history going back billions of years in the history of our universe. We say our universe because it is not the first. There are many prior, future and parallel manifestations of The Creator’s imagination. So, we will speak of our universe, whose essence was birthed beyond the Great Central Sun. Dimensions of love and light and dimensions of duality all playing out alongside each other so that The Creator and all its aspects may experience. The Maya call this Ahau, the “I Am that I Am” presence. As our universe unfolded over infinite time, through Lyra, Sirius and eventually to the far reaches of our galaxy, the physical configuration of what you call your solar system was different. This was a binary star system. Two suns, warming the planets and all their inhabitants.

The smaller planets, now known to you as Mercury and Venus, were inhospitable to physical life. This does not mean they had no life as the essence of life comes in many forms and on many levels. The larger of the two stars lay beyond your sun as you now view it and emitted enough energy to allow seven other planets in the system to all maintain physical life. Realize, as you relate to linear time, this occurred billions of years ago…infinity in reverse. Many races inhabited and visited this system such as Humanoid, Feline and Reptilian. These were intelligent life forms of multiple varieties.

Sirian Humanoid Feline Reptilian

(Author’s note: Artists renderings and Sumerian/Egyptian glyphs.)

Then, as now, duality existed. Some of these advanced races wished to conquer and rule while others lived for service to others. Yet, what occurred to end that program had nothing to do with duality, but rather through divine plan. As the larger sun began to die, the various races realized that life would no longer be viable on their home planets. The more advanced races, wishing to save their civilization, travelled to other parts of the galaxy. They had correctly had intuited that their journey out was really a journey back to their place of birth.

The feline race, living on what is now Jupiter, traveled to Lyra. A humanoid race, our blessed ancestors, residing on what is now Saturn, ventured to the Sirius star system, The reptilian race on the planet called Nibiru experienced a more amazing fate. As the larger sun died, the energies of the smaller sun created a different gravitational field, which began to change the configuration of your solar system. The outer planets froze over and lost their ability to sustain physical life. All that remained of their civilizations was buried under immense layers of ice. Your scientists are aware that a mass extinction occurred over 250 million of your years ago, but not known until this moment is that Earth was in a different orbit within the binary star system and the death of the larger sun created that ice age.

The position of Nibiru as this occurred was such that it began to shift into an eliptical orbit and flew into deep space. This new orbit would greatly expand the distance and time it took for Nibiru to complete one orbit around its remaining sun. You may have heard of this legend through Zecharia Sitchin’s translation of the 6,000 year old Sumerian tablets of seeding Nibiru’s atmosphere with gold particles, which reflected escaping heat back to the planet, thereby keeping their race alive. His is an accurate account, but the Sumerians only knew a fraction their vast galactic past.

Remember that time does not exist as you know it in the higher spheres of consciousness. Dimensions, universes, galaxies and timelines may overlap and interact with each other. Countless other expressions of The Creator’s imagination exist in the infinite logos, this story being just a minuscule part of the divine plan. Yet, it is important for it is a part of your cellular memory. It was this shift in the physical configuration of the galaxy that The Creator used to create another universal story: a universe that would allow free will as the primary construct.

The new Lyrans built their civilization and then slowly began to expand out into the galaxy. Some went toward Sirius where they founded their own new world. By the time they arrived many millennia had passed and our group consciousness had already ascended into non-physical form. Some went toward Orion and another group colonized planets in the Pleiades star system. The Pleiadians would form their own unique civilization based on community, love and honor. As their technology progressed, they too would venture out to the far reaches of the galaxy. Reaching out to where, unbeknownst to them, their ancient heritage had begun.

While the Lyrans were creating new worlds and new civilizations, the Nibiruans were creating their own destiny. Sumerian history speaks of the cataclysms that unfolded to create your solar system as you now know it. Nibiru, being in an unstable elliptical orbit around the remaining sun, collided with a planet they called Tiamat, (author’s note: Sitchin states that Tiamat was the planet between what is now Mars and Jupiter.) The impact caused Tiamat to break in two with half shattering, becoming your asteroid belt and the other half being pushed into a new orbit along with Tiamat’s moon between Venus and Mars. In your frame of reference, this celestial event occurred over 200 million years ago. It was this new dynamic that created the current parameters of precession for Tiamat…Earth, and the other planets of your system in the orbits they hold to this day.

Eventually various races would discover Earth and begin to settle there. The reptilian race of Nibiru, known as the Annunaki to the Sumerians, would return, colonize the planet and begin mining for gold, which was in short supply on their home world. Hundreds of thousands of years would pass with the Annunaki being the only inhabitants of Earth except for the primitive beings that were slowly evolving over time. Eventually, other explorers came to Earth and founded their own civilizations, beginning around 200,000 Earth years ago. When more colonists arrived 75,000 years later, they realized they were not alone and decided to settle in an uninhabited portion of the planet. Your Hopi legends are also tied directly to this drama. The ancient stories of prior worlds that have been orally passed down through countless generations are not myth. Your lineage is of the stars.

We bring forth these ancient stories because it will be easier for you to understand your process of ascension as humanity raises its frequency, as it has done many times before in prior spirals of time. Understand that while knowledge does not always become wisdom, you cannot achieve wisdom without knowledge.

Brief Introduction into the Karahan Tepe archaeological site

Researchers in situ. Credit: AA.com

Karahan Tepe is located in Sanliurfa, Turkey, and was originally discovered in 1997. Unfortunately, excavations did not begin until about 22 years later in September 2019.

Last year, with the permission of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Istanbul University Prehistoric Archeology Department faculty member Prof. Dr. Necmi Karul began excavations.

So far, Karahan Tepe may not be larger than Gobekli Tepe but it could be older. Credit: Daily Sabah

His team was able to locate about 250 massive obelisks through geophysical and georadar studies carried out in Karahan Tepe. This discovery ultimately made the Karahan Tepe site a major place of interest as the researchers believed the obelisks were Neolithic.

Even in aerial photographs, it was possible to see and count the obelisks on the surface of the archaeological site.

The stones resemble those at the world’s oldest temple – Gobekli Tepe, but Karahan Tepe has now been teased to be the new most ancient archaeological site. We will be expecting the official statement in the following days.

However, the scientific excavation team is not very keen on these discussions about which one is older. They point out that it does not matter whether Karahan Tepe is older or newer than Göbeklitepe. What they mean is that this fact will not change its scientific value.

What I also need to mention about Karahan Tepe and Gobekli Tepe as an additional piece of information is that there are another dozen ancient sites in the region thought to be from this period. What this means is that we will be hearing a lot from Prof. Dr. Karul in the upcoming years and undoubtedly, ancient history will be rewritten in one way or another.


Archaeologists Find 12,000-year-old Pictograph at Gobeklitepe

Earliest Religious Site?

Newly gathered evidence from excavations at the site backs up Schmidt’s argument that the beginnings of civilization spurred the invention of farming. In the middle of each monumental enclosure are two tall T-shaped pillars, carved with stylized arms, hands and loincloths. The largest weigh more than 16 tons. Carving and moving them from a nearby quarry must have been a tremendous challenge, requiring hundreds of people and enough food to feed them all.

But archaeologists have yet to find evidence of permanent settlement at Göbekli Tepe. One recent suggestion is that the site was a regional gathering place. It’s perched on top of a bone-dry peak, with a commanding view of the surrounding mountains and the plains to the south.

“Back then people would have to meet regularly to keep the gene pool fresh and exchange information,” says Jens Notroff, a German Archaeological Institute archaeologist who works on the site. “It’s a landmark. It’s no accident they gathered there.”

In fact, smaller versions of the pillars, symbols and architecture carved into stone at Göbekli Tepe have been found in settlements up to 125 miles away. It’s as though Göbekli Tepe were a cathedral and the others local churches hunter-gatherers might have traveled long distances to meet, worship and help build new monumental structures, sponsoring feasts to display their wealth.

“The feasting aspect is the easiest explanation for attracting a labor force to construct the enclosures,” Notroff says.

As they’ve dug deeper into the hilltop, archaeologists have found other evidence for feasting: After they were built, the stone enclosures were filled in with dirt, stone, and animal bones. Over the course of centuries, new structures were built on top of the backfill, creating a man-made mound. The debris includes tens of thousands of broken animal bones, including gazelles and aurochs, a type of wild cow that’s now extinct. There are also huge stone vessels, big enough to hold more than 40 gallons of liquid—perhaps early beer.

Turkish Archaeologists Discover the World’s Oldest Known Writings

Archaeologists have discovered what they believe could be the earliest known writing. A 12,000-year-old pictograph was found within the ancient settlement of Gobeklitepe in southeast Anatolia, Turkey.

The pictograph, chiseled into an obelisk, reportedly depicts a traditional sky burial whereby bodies are left outdoors to be picked apart by scavengers.

“The scene on the obelisk unearthed in Göbeklitepe could be construed as the first pictograph because it depicts an event thematically,” Şanlıurfa Museum Director and Göbeklitepe head archaeologist Müslüm Ercan told Hürriyet Daily News.

He added, “It could be the first example of pictograph. They are not random figures. We see this type of thing portrayed on the walls in 6,000-5,000 B.C. in Çatalhöyük [in modern-day western Turkey].”

Archaeologists also discovered mysterious 20-foot-tall pillars at the site.

Pictographs are an early method of writing in which pictures are used to convey meaning—similar to hieroglyphics.

There is little evidence of ancient forms of writing around the world. If confirmed as a form of written communication, the Turkish pictographs could replace Sumerian—a language used in Southern Mesopotamia in 3100BC—as the world’s oldest known writing, the Daily Mail reports.

Archaeologists also found monumental T-shaped pillars made of stone, some up to 20 feet tall. In total, approximately 200 such pillars were discovered, arranged in 20 circles.

The team of experts believe that the site at Göbeklitepe—one of several temple-like structures unearthed in the region—had religious significance to its ancient inhabitants.

Several millennia later, people still communicate using images. The modern day pictograph—the emoji—remains as popular now as it was 12,000 years ago.


What is the Waffle Rock?

It is unclear when local residents became aware of Waffle Rock, though its existence was already known by the 1930s. At that time, there was a small town called Shaw. The town, or rather what remains of it, is today submerged under the waters of Jennings Randolph Lake.

It was also during the 1930s that the American Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) arrived at the town, and told its residents to pack up and leave. The government had decided to build a dam on the Potomac River, which flowed through the town. The damming of the river would cause the town to be submerged.

Whilst the residents were, undoubtedly, unhappy with being forced to move, some of them were also concerned about Waffle Rock, which some of them referred to as ‘Indian Rock’. Part of the rock was moved by the USACE to save it from the dam project, possibly thanks to the pressure put on them by the residents of Shaw. Today Waffle Rock stands just outside the visitor’s center at the West Virginia Overlook, a recreational facility at Jennings Randolph Lake. Another, smaller piece of the rock is displayed in the Smithsonian Institute of Natural History in Washington D.C.

Göbekli Tepe: The Temple That Hints at What Humans Were Up to 11,000 Years Ago

Eleven thousand years ago, the world looked different.

Not only did lush forests exist where there are now deserts, grasslands where there are now coral reefs, humans hadn't yet begun building many things. Of course, we can't ever really know exactly what our ancestors were up to tens of thousands of years ago, but one place — the archaeological site Göbekli Tepe — can give us a few clues.

Göbekli Tepe, a monument along the lines of Stonehenge situated in the Germuş mountain range of southeastern Turkey, was discovered by a team of American and Turkish surveyors in the 1960s, but their discovery of limestone slabs and flint artifacts wasn't recognized for what it was until 1994, when a German archaeologist named Klaus Schmidt stepped in and realized its significance. It is a mysterious site to this day, partly because we can make so few assumptions about the people who built it.

"Monuments, generally speaking, are a particular example of architecture standing out due to their size and/or the effort necessary to create them," says Jens Notroff, an archaeologist who has worked on the Göbekli Tepe Project since 2006, in an email. "Göbekli Tepe is a noteworthy example in this context since the monuments there mark the first yet known example of monumental architecture, and that they were constructed in a cultural context of still highly mobile hunter-gatherers."

A Mobile Hunter-gatherer Society

From what archaeologists have been able to surmise from the Göbekli Tepe site itself, the people who built it were highly mobile hunter-gatherers — there's no evidence that they kept livestock, planted their own food or made metal tools. This jives with what we know of the people in the early Neolithic:

"Göbekli Tepe is from a period called 'Pre-Pottery Neolithic,' which means before the invention of ceramic vessels," says Notroff. "We know settlement sites and their architecture from the period and region which were inhabited for a longer time. Apparently, the buildings unearthed at Göbekli Tepe do not really resemble this 'typical' settlement architecture, but rather a peculiar type of building interpreted as 'special purpose' communal buildings."

Was It a Temple or a Home?

"Special purpose" refers to a type of structure that wasn't regularly inhabited: a temple, a sanctuary or a place for dispersed groups to gather at appointed times. According to Notroff, the current interpretation of Göbekli Tepe as a monument rather than a home does not rule out inhabitation of the site at some point or the existence of other architecture nearby that has yet to be uncovered. However, Göbekli Tepe was built at the very top of an exposed hill, 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the nearest spring, which makes its prospects as a homestead poor — plus, the site hasn't yet yielded cooking hearths, trash pits or any of the usual signs that ancient people conducted their daily business there.

It seems Göbekli Tepe was a work in progress for at least a couple thousand years, but from what archaeologists have concluded, the majority of it was built during three main periods. The site itself comprises around 200 limestone pillars, situated in 20 circles, not all of which have yet been excavated. The rings are laid out similarly, with two larger T-shaped pillars in the middle, surrounded by a bench studded with shorter, smaller pillars facing the two stones in the middle. The tallest pillars are 16 feet (4.8 meters) tall, and they weigh between seven and 10 tons (6 and 9 metric tons) each.

The pillars themselves are covered with all manner of engravings, most of which depict animals — but not always the animals you'd necessarily expect. In addition to game animals like gazelles and boars, the pillars of Göbekli Tepe depict foxes, snakes, lions, birds like cranes and vultures, as well as spiders and scorpions — in fact, the pictographs seem to be dominated by animals that wouldn't have been particularly good to eat. Some of the pillars themselves seem to represent larger-than-life anthropomorphic sculptures: They each have a faceless head, arms, a belt and a loincloth.

"While the early monumentality of the site is definitely impressive, to me it's the social implications at the doorstep of one of the crucial points in the history of our species is what makes this research so fascinating," says Notroff.

Around 10 millennium B.C.E. when Göbekli Tepe was first constructed, humans were already starting to build semi-permanent settlements, although they didn't begin transitioning from hunting and gathering to agriculture and keeping livestock for another couple thousand years. But Göbekli Tepe shows what might be a bridge between two ways of life. Some of the enclosures provide evidence of huge meals, which might mean ritualized feasting took place there.

Although we may never know what really went on at Göbekli Tepe — some people believe it was a human skull cult! — it's likely that it was a place built and maintained by a hunter-gatherer society to meet up, trade information, exchange goods, find marriage partners, share life hacks and make friends who could help out later in a pinch.

And if they were performing skull cult ceremonies, what better way to build community?

" The things we are seeing in our soil, in our plants, in our homes, and our barns aren't normal.

You go back 40 years, and I have the privilege of doing that, they're not normal. A lot of our young scientists think they are and consequently they don't understand and appreciate how we used to grow our plants, produce them, and the quality they used to be.
Our health factors alone are overwhelming our health facilities. Our capability of meeting the needs of our people.
Now, I think that future historians may well look back upon our time (and) write not about how many pounds of pesticides we did or didn't apply, but about how willing we are to sacrifice our children and future generations all for this experimental process that we called "genetic engineering" that's based on failed promises- flawed science- just to benefit the bottom line of a commercial enterprise.
