Göbekli Tepe clues !

The findings are organised in the folowing chapters:

A. Gods or spirits !? B. People gathering. Sumerian “Me” C. Birds & Cult of the Deads D. E-KUR, ARATTA E. Door, doorway ====================== A. Gods or spirits !? From https://damienmarieathope.com/2017/11/shamanism-an-approximately-30000-year-old-belief-system/?v=32aec8db952d << Shamanism encompasses the premise that shamans are: intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. A first definition of this complex phenomenon, and perhaps the least hazardous, will be: shamanism = ‘technique of religious ecstasy‘.” Shamanism encompasses the premise that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illnes by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans may visit other worlds/dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment. 

Paganism: an approximately 12,000-year-old belief system

* “paganist” Believe in spirit-filled life and/or afterlife can be attached to or be expressed in things or objects and these objects can be used by special persons or in special rituals can connect to spirit-filled life and/or afterlife who are guided/supported by a goddess/god or goddesses/gods (you are a hidden paganist/Paganism: an approximately 12,000-year-old belief system) AndGobekli Tepe: “first human made temple” as well as Catal Huyuk “first religious designed city” are both evidence of some kind of early paganism. early paganism is connected to Proto-Indo-European language and religion. 

What do pagans believe? Some pagans believe in a single god or single goddess, some believe in a god and goddess, some believe in many gods and/or many goddesses, some believe there is no god and some are not sure whether there is/are god(s) or not. Some worship these gods, and some (even those who believe in them) do not. Some are animist (Nature – Veneration) and believe that ‘spirit’ exists in all humans, animals, plants, non-living things like rocks, planets, oceans and wind, as a real concept or an abstract concepts such as love, creativity, and change.>>

—————— Despite the scientist’s approaches of Gobekli Tepe people’s faith to gods and slight traces on T-pillars toward antropomorphic shape, my opinion is that they worshiped spirits. From Mesopotamia, Ancient | Encyclopedia.comwww.encyclopedia.com › religion › mesopotamia-ancient << The offices of the gods touched upon a very distinctive feature of early Mesopotamian thought. These offices were called ME, which is probably the noun of the verb “to be.” It is being, but being specified and normative that imparted to nature and society its essential structure. In one piece of speculation ME was at the very beginning of cosmic origins, antecedent to divinity itself. In the actual order, however, the gods controlled and disposed of me; this was the highest prerogative of divinity. >> From https://www.coursehero.com/file/p7jom8g/but-implies-a-situation-resembling-that-in-Open-sesame-Given-the/ << Some of these mono-liths exhibit arms and hands in bas-relief, suggesting that they represent anthropomorphic beings.It is not clear, however, what kind of beings these standing stones impersonate : do they represent anthropomorphic gods, shamans, ancestors, stone spirits or perhaps even demons >> Gobekli Tepe’s faith keep aspects and traces of different religion developement phases, from animism, totemism, shamanism and paganism.

B. People gathering. Sumerian-like distribution of “Me’s”. People gathered at Gobekli Tepe to exchange experiences and strengthen and maintain close kinship. Sumerian Me, is an allready extensive discussed subject. There are clues that another civilisation preceeded sumerian was the most advanced of its time in entire World, and from that one, sumerians inherited basics for starting full-scale civilisation. Gobekli Tepe religion was centered around life principle. Not necessary needed a god, they had spirits. The main spirit, no matter its name (“Me”=”Beeing” or a forgotten name wich was its equivalent in Proto-Eupratic language). Its icon was T-shaped pillars.The icon was the materialization of the idea: “beeing,to be” and was a spirit, not a human beeing or god proper, nor his icon.

C. Birds & Cult of the Deads Gobekli Tepe’s people see anything living beeing or object, alive or dead as possesing own spirit. So the dead-ones were not proper completely dead in our understanding.The birds had a special relation with deads as beeing messengers between the World of living and the other World. From Ritualistic Bird Symbolism at Gobekli Tepe and its “Ancestor Cult” by Damien AtHope | Jun 25, 2019 https://damienmarieathope.com/2019/06/ritualistic-bird-symbolism-at-gobekli-tepe-and-its-ancestor-cult/?v=32aec8db952d << Ritualistic Bird Symbolism at Gobekli Tepe and its “Ancestor Cult” a Sacred Sky Burial Relationship between Birds and Spirits of the Dead Myths from several regions’ associate birds with the creation of the world. Sacred ideas of birds range from a creator role, to a symbol of life as well as relating to both death and rebirth. Birds are a common totem or believed spirit and relate to renewal, transformation, and ancestors as well. In this deity, spirit or ancestor role they may be seen as Bird People (people with the characteristics of birds) a common motif in myths. Also, birds are commonly associated with or relate to fertility, longevity, and life itself. “Veneration of the dead, including one’s ancestors, is based on love and respect for the deceased. In some cultures, it is related to beliefs that the dead have a continued existence, and may possess the ability to influence the fortune of the living. Some groups venerate their direct, familial ancestors. Certain sects and religions, in particular the Roman Catholic Church, venerate saints as intercessors with God, as well as pray for departed souls in Purgatory.In EuropeAsiaOceaniaAfrican and Afro-diasporic cultures, the goal of ancestor veneration is to ensure the ancestors’ continued well-being and positive disposition towards the living, and sometimes to ask for special favors or assistance. The social or non-religious function of ancestor veneration is to cultivate kinship values, such as filial piety, family loyalty, and continuity of the family lineage. Ancestor veneration occurs in societies with every degree of social, political, and technological complexity, and it remains an important component of various religious practices in modern times.

“Sky Burial” and its possible origins at least 12,000 years ago to likely 30,000 years ago or older.    “In archaeology and anthropology, the term excarnation (also known as defleshing) refers to the practice of removing the flesh and organs of the dead before burial, leaving only the bones. Excarnation may be precipitated through natural means, involving leaving a body exposed for animals to scavenge, or it may be purposefully undertaken by butchering the corpse by hand. Practices making use of natural processes for excarnation are the Tibetan sky burialComanche platform burials, and traditional Zoroastrian funerals (see Tower of Silence).  Some Native American groups in the southeastern portion of North America practised deliberate excarnation in protohistoric times. Archaeologists believe that in this practice, people typically left the body exposed on a woven litter or altar.” >

D. E-KUR, ARATTA From Artak Movsisyan THE SACRED HIGHLANDS Armenia in the Spiritual Geography of the Ancient Near East << Sumerians had in their memory that temple of Gods was E-KUR literarely ” mountain-temple”.was situated as Aratta in Northern part of Sumer, toward Armenia.In Sumerian epic Aratta has the honor of being called the “land of the divine holy law”112. “The divine sacred laws” (in Sumerian – me) is understood not only as rules, but also as the mighty, sacred forces which governed the universe and all spheres of the divine and human reality. For that reason it is suggested that the Sumerian “me” be translated as “essence, being”113. The lord of “the divine sacred laws”, according to Sumer-Akkadian mythology, was Haya (Enki), the wisest of the gods, whose cult center, as mentioned earlier, is connected with the Armenian Highlands.
In Mesopotamian literary accounts, major creation events took place in the Armenian sacred Highlands, where the sacred laws governing the universe, as well as the mysteries of immortality and wisdom were kept, and where not just ordinary mortals, but a chosen people lived. The divine holy law (“me”) which ruled the universe was kept in Abzu, and in the Sumerian epic Aratta is referred to as the “land of the divine holy law”, the earliest reference to date to a state in the Armenian Highlands (see fn. 112 and Appendix A). .>>

E.Door, doorway In different religions, door and doorway appear as the passage of humans to Underworld, the World of deads. From On the Origins of the Alphabet by Brian R. Pellar San Diego, California https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?zx=5altn8zeq797#inbox?projector=1 << Thus, it is no surprise that the Gemini/candle and candle-like glyphs in Egyptian Hieroglyphics depict such words as “The great door of heaven,” “The great gate,” “The door of sunrise, the last door of the Duat,” “Door,” “Gateway,” etc. See Figure 9. A. Hieroglyph used in words for “Door,” “Gateway,” “Great Door of Heaven,” “The door of sunrise, the last door in the Tuat” (Budge 1978: 654–655).D. Hieroglyph for “door, gateway” (Gardiner 1957: 496). In terms of the Gemini Candle/gate symbolizing a vessel that carries the sun/flame/light, the importance of the link between these Egyptian shapes/words, the Hieroglyph “p,” , the Phoenician shape of heth, , and the Chinese word/shape for “sun,” 日 (ri), cannot be overestimated. Furthermore, and more importantly, Wei noted that the Phoenician/Hebrew letter heth is “similar to the Chinese OB glyphs which are the original forms of the word hu (*ga?) 户 (DEZ: 242), meaning ‘door’, ‘gate’, ‘house,’” (Wei 1999: 26). She also links heth/geng to the Sumerian glyphs (gan), meaning “enclosure” (Wei 1999: 27).>> And I will add, sumerian signs https://cdli.ucla.edu/tools/SignLists/protocuneiform/archsigns.html Ga2

From Göbekli Tepe Shamans and their Cosmic Symbols – Part I Symbolic Architecture https://www.ancient-origins.net/ancient-places-europe/g-bekli-tepe-shamans-and-their-cosmic-symbols-part-i-005175?fbclid=IwAR08wQwSvqdsN0P-GHaMn5Xlyuvr5KVUH4E8gPF5kx1B7Q-GV2EgrW4btEM <<There are two central pillars in Göbeklitepe temples. There is question on if we define these two pillars as “The Dual Divinity,” in that they should be the “celestial parents” and “male and female principles” as well. In my opinion they were for the high-priests or head-shamans of Göbekli Tepe temples. In Sumerian mythology, sun god Utu stands between two columns which symbolize a gate; and the symbols are the sky and the earth.>>

The Sumerian deity, Utu
