Ancient Language of Universal Symbols Discovered
http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2009/03/did-an-ancient.html

Over the last several years, similar petroglyphs have been identified on as many as five continents. They all date from roughly the same time-period. In the late 20th century, archaeologists discovered a collection of symbols carved in stone as petroglyphs in the Negev desert of Israel that appeared to be writing. Dating of these symbols showed that they were made over an extended period time, beginning around 1700 BC.

In the progressive cultural development of mankind, there is an observable order and a logic of ascension. Obviously we didn’t jump from the caveman days directly into sky scrapers.

When the cultures of man began to build structures, there were some basic and notable design structures to emerge. We all started with the simplest of forms, the easiest being a pyramid and posts, then rectangle and cube and so on. Because of this simplistic and fundamental principle of geometric designs we found that all of the earliest monuments in the world to be pyramids and or posts. All of which appeared around the world and roughly in the same time frame of development.

This is not a real mystery as you can witness the same pattern emerge from your own children playing in the sand box or on the beach.

The same holds true with the written language. There will be similarities in written language that is written on, or with, similar mediums. If you are writing in stone with a chisel, certain shapes are easier to make than others. This is true with a stick and clay or a shard and wax, etc, etc. So it is understandable to find common shapes in writings around the world and it is also to be expected.

The real test of the ages is whether the symbols used in the petro-glyphs are meant to relate the same ideas from one continent to the next, which so far, has not been the case. At this current time, we find no underlining translations to depict any commonality to the meaning of these glyphs. An “S” shape in one culture means “river”, while in another it means “Bob Johnson” and in yet another, it means “tastes like chicken”.

I see what you mean...i guess, but it's obvious that children have no understanding of arcane archetypes.

I'm glad you mentioned the 'S'. It's all about meaning, isn't?

In ancient Egypt: the serpent.

In buddhism: the serpent.

And classical Maya: the serpent.

Is this not a commonality, even more so stretching across space and time? This is not 'children playing in the sand box or on the beach'. The 'S'erpent seems to hold equivalent spiritual/mystical meaning in many cultures over the ages, why? We may not have a clear answer for this, but the question applies equally for all of them: egyptians, buddhist, mayans (just to mention a few!).

This just in! (Events are rapidly piling up!)

Experts trying to decipher ancient language
By BARRY HATTON, Associated Press Writer Barry Hatton, Associated Press Writer – Sat Feb 28, 1:10 pm ET

ALMODOVAR, Portugal – When archaeologists on a dig in southern Portugal last year flipped over a heavy chunk of slate and saw writing not used for more than 2,500 years, they were elated.

The enigmatic pattern of inscribed symbols curled symmetrically around the upper part of the rough-edged, yellowish stone tablet and coiled into the middle in a decorative style typical of an extinct Iberian language called Southwest Script.

"We didn't break into applause, but almost," says Amilcar Guerra, a University of Lisbon lecturer overseeing the excavation. "It's an extraordinary thing."

Or they could just be meaningless doodles!

Everyone has sat bored in class and doodled on their exercise books or idly doodled on the notepad by the phone while waiting to be connected. I dare say if you took a random sampling of these doodles from across the globe you would find certain consistencies: circles, spirals, crosses, stick figures, animals, trees, plants, stars, arrows, wavy lines, etc.

Why should this phenomenon be restricted to modern humans; might not our ancient ancestors also have doodled?

As to whether some of this forms have an unconscious meaning or universal symbolism is another matter. I am willing to entertain the notion that some might have a Jungian archetypal significance for humans.

That picture looks utterly fake to me. The 'glyphs' are in perfect focus on the left hand side, where the rock is out of focus and blurry. On at least 2 occasions the glyph crosses a fracture in the rock with no break itself. See the 'shepherd's crook' just to the right of centre, and the legs of the animal at the very top right-hand side to get an idea of what I mean.

If the glyphs are real, the picture is artificially enhanced and may be subject to interpretation.

Well, there are some things that naturally maintain a symbolic constant for many different cultures and through out time.
For an example, the image of a sun, a leaf, a snake, man, woman, and a bird are just few glyph symbols that can generally mean to represent the same thing across the void of time and cultures. It is the other glyphs, the ones that aren't so obvious, that make translations a pain. Things like a circle, a circle with a hash on the line and another with a hash in the middle that defy a consistant meaning from one culture to the next.
