Magura cave paintings are at least 32 500 years old. Copies of them used to be made and thus icons were created.

New data confirms innovative assumptions, that the paleolithic paintings from Magura cave are a record of dramatic events from the time when Cro-Magnons came to the Balkan peninsula. Except for this, the new data leads to the conclusion that the paintings were created in two times: the first of them were created 42 000 – 43 000 years ago; 14 000 – 15 000 years ago they were renovated and additions were included.

Data has been found, which leads to the conclusion that the prototypes of icons were copies of Magura cave paintings, made on tablets by adepts at least since 32 500 years ago.

A strange phenomenon has been described in Magura cave. One of its scenes states that people started counting their history since 42 680 ago, after that event happened. Prior to it, they had never decided themselves people.

A few years ago I was inspired by the idea, that modern murals in the temples originate from Magura cave paintings. The paintings were supposedly used for the initiation in a certain field of knowledge, as this should be done during sermons in the temples. This led me to the idea that icons have originated in the same way and the images on them are far more realistic representations of Magura cave figures. I supposed that icons initially were personal copies of specific Magura paintings as one could not stay forever in the cave and should go, but he would need the exact figure later on. Therefore he had to make a copy. Over time, such copies existed in many distant sites of initiation, all of them created on tablets with different sizes. More time passed and the initial meaning of those tablets was forgotten thus allowing them to turn into icons of saints. But I had not even a single confirmation of this assumption.

After I have read a significant number of scientific publications and resumes about Neanderthals and the coming of Cro-Magnons in Europe, it became clear to me that initially rock and cave paintings used to be totally abstract (40 000 years ago and older ones), and the newer ones have become more and more realistic. All signs and symbols, left by Neanderthals, are completely abstract and they contain no actual depictions. With the dying off of Neanderthals, cave paintings begin to be more and more realistic and more and more depictions of humans and animals begin to appear among them. This trend has obviously reached to complete realism in murals. Ancient abstract, especially these from Magura cave, resemble various principles and forces. Later on they have been personalized as already numbers of angels have been designated as the rulers of these laws and forces. Their depiction becomes naturalistic and ancient symbols are converted into realistic human figures. As this has happened to murals, a similar process must have created icons. According to my assumption, icons originated, because Magura adepts used to make copies of the paintings on various surfaces – all of them should be flat in order to be suitable for the depiction. Those used to be various soft stones, wood, leather, bones and other appropriate obects and materials.

It is totally easy to see, that the typical Magura cave feature of the hands raised around and over the head in the shape of a circle or an arch, have turned into aureoles around the heads on icons. The reason is that, in Magura cave painting system, the hands around the head mean consciousness, which is especially developed in saints and therefore, on icons, around their head there is still this ancient circle, which has been inherited yet from Magura cave paintings. The human-like paintings from Magura cave are not humans, but they mean different states of the soul. Later on, Magura cave paintings have been naturalized and human bodies appear on icons. These human bodies are indeed distorted repetitions of Magura cave paintings.
For a very long time this used to be just a hypothesis, for which I had no direct confirmations. As the critics of this blog used to say back then, no artifacts were available to support the assumption.
Artifacts actually exist, but their discoverers have no idea of Magura, which is a kind of defect everywhere – I have always observed, that Bulgarian and foreign archaeologists and interpreters have not even heard of Magura cave paintings, which mutilates their researches. If they had an idea of Magura cave, they would better understand their own discoveries. No I, more or less by chance, encounter their finds and I find out that these are my missing artifacts.

Figure 6. Someone’s interpretations of the tablet’s topic.
The tablet on Figure 5 has been made of ivory. It represents a human or a human-like figure with its hands raised over and around the head as well as with its body in the shape of an hourglass, i.e. two triangles, joined by their vertices at the waist. All these are features of Magura cave paintings. These features are not available at other places – in other caves with paleolithic paintings nor in rock shelters, i.e. this is not a usual pictorial stile of ancient times. Therefore these features clearly and categorically indicate which figures around the world belong to the culture, which created the cave paintings of Magura. In other words, when we see this features at the same place, we know for sure the painting is part of Magura philosphy, which thus helps to trace Magura culture’s spreading around the world.
After this, Figure 6 shows someone’s interpretation of the image on the tablet. It is clearly obvious that his idea is that it is a man with its hands raised over and around the head. This is the exact impression, which everyone, who has seen Magura cave paintings, has. And this idea has come to the person, who has done this interpretation, without he having ever seen a Magura cave painting. Indeed, he has seen, but the one on the tablet, not the ones in the cave.
It has been estimated, that the tablet belongs to the so called Aurignacian culture. The tablet was found in a cave in Ach valley in Germany. Its estimated age is 32 500 years, which means that Magura cave paintings have been existing at least since that time, as it has been possible for someone to create a complete replica of them.
But how do we know, that this tablet does not precede Magura cave paintings?
Aurignacian culture has been pretty much studied so far.
Figure 7. The main centers of Aurignacian culture.
Figure 7 shows the main centers of Aurignacian culture, as they have been so far discovered by archaeology.
Figure 8. Migration and spread of Aurignacian culture. The dots mark split-base points. The numbers next to them indicate tens of thousands of years ago. For example, 40/43 means 40 000 – 43 000 years ago.
Figure 8 shows the routes of the culture’s migration. Those people step in Europe some 46 000 years ago and some 40 000 – 43 000 years ago they are already on the Balkan peninsula having some of their centers in Norther Bulgaria and especially in North-western Bulgaria. The two points there are really close to Magura and Kozarnika caves.
Those people move basically along Danube river, along which the so called European animism originates, which is also known as the European fertility cult or this is exactly Magura philosophy, which has been depicted in the cave. But when people say „fertility cult“, as I see, they normally mean something very limited which is related only to the various „Veneras“ figurines. Magura record contains this, but much more as well.
Figure 9. A hypothesis of the origin of religions around the world.
Figure 9 reveals a concept of the author of The Human Odyssey of how religions have originated and developed. According to the information gathered by him, European animism appears about 40 000 BCE or this is about 42 000 years ago.
Figure 10. European animism is symbolized by a female figure with its hands raised over and around its head.
Figure 10 shows that European animism is symbolized by a female figure with its hands raised over and around the head, which is a completely Maguran symbol – all human-like figures there look in exactly the same way.
Figure 8 states that those colonizers of Europe reach the region of Magura cave some 43 000 – 40 000 years ago. Figure 10 stated that European animism appears some 42 000 years ago, and the large archaeological researches in the region of Belogradchik (which is as well the region of Magura cave as it is located 25 km away from the town of Belogradchik) from the last decade reveal, that there are traces of sudden and massive human presence in local caves again some 40 000 years ago. All this confirms the coming of those people and the appearance of a new philosophy as a result of this.
I had such an assumption long time ago but I had no proof – the assumption was based only on the logic of the fact, that Magura cave paintings appear to be unique and obviously initial, i.e. they could be only the beginning of something, and there is not a single trace to prove that they have been inherited from some culture and brought here.
Except for this, I had another hypothesis as well, according to which the creators of Magura cave paintings have stated in one of the scenes, that human history starts 42 680 years ago.

I had this assumptions long before I got the present information. It came to me on later phase. All my assumptions, which are now confirmed, were done only on the base of the reading of the cave’s paintings and without any availability of external information. Back then I used to avoid external information and I wanted to create my own understanding of Magura cave paintings. Now this approach turns out to be very useful, because it is an actual test for the verity and the reliability of Magura record. Of using only them, one can read all this without any special external information (external means any information different from the very paintings), then Magura record has been created in such way, that it reveals all necessary information even in the conditions of complete lack of any knowledge and civilizations in the world. This is a confirmation of one of my old hypotheses, that the paintings were created in relation to an extreme event, after which it was expected that no more knowledge should exist and therefore they had to create a record, which reveals all the information itself. The very paintings teach the way to be read, if one invests much enough time (it took me six ears to start reading them. I have this supposition, because I started reading the paintings on my own after having systematically studied the meaning of the basic symbols and their interrelations). This is like the self-extracting  archive, which does not need us to have the program on our computer, because all the necessary algorithms have been included into the archive.
So far my assumptions, which I made only on the basis of the paintings’s reading, turn out to be true – people came here 43 000 – 40 000 years ago. But the Tape of human history tells a very strange story – man appears suddenly 42 680 years ago, as the beginning – the right side of the tape is sudden unlike the future – the left side – which is open to go on. OK then, people came here – this means that they had existed prior to this, so they could not appear suddenly at this moment. But all of a sudden those people stated in the paintings, that they DID appear suddenly exactly at the time when European animism – their philosophy – appeared as well.
Something strange happened then, which was depicted as the sudden beginning of human history. As if those people thought, that they had not been people before they got their new philosophy. As Magura cave paintings supply true data which is confirmed by present discoveries, they are also true about the sudden appearance of mankind. They probably meant the development of soul and consciousness, which is exactly what makes one a man. Maybe some factor caused them to completely develop at once and they realized themselves as humans, and they also realized that they had never been people before. Because bodies had long existed, but we do not have any information who lived inside them prior to this event.
What happened? – who knows. Another part of my assumptions from the time before this new information was, that the very region of Belogradchik and and more precisely Belogradchik rocks caused this change and inoculated the human into the human body. It seems to me that assumption is now confirmed as well, because coming of those men into this region coincides with the appearance of their Magura philosophy, which starts one realizing himself as human.
Over time this culture inhabits Western Europe as well. Therefore this ivory tablet with a Magura depiction on it has been found in Germany – because it had been brought there from east, from the territory of North-western Bulgaria, i.e. from the region of Magura cave. So, Magura cave paintings are older then 32 500 years, which is the age of the tablet. But how is it possible that the paintings are both older (about 42 000 years old) and created, according to my interpretation, 14 600 years ago? It is possible! There were two period of their creation. Once the paintings were created in the very beginning 42 680 years ago together with the appearance of Magura philosophy. Traces of them are still visible. There are about ten paintings, around which the cave’s wall has recessed by several millimeters backwards. The paint itself serves strengthens the wall surface and therefore the painting does not erode, while the surrounding wall still erodes and recesses. Except for this, on many places of the walls there are faint spots, as if present Magura paintings have been created over something older, which at some places seems to have scraped. The paintings were renovated 14 600 years ago. Then the Scene of human history was added, because the history had already been known.
And because this was the most significant event in human history, these were the most significant paintings. This is the reason why exactly they are in the base of all the following human development. Therefore we find them in many religions, in occult teachings, philosophies and even as the prototype of modern murals and icons.
The more data I collect, the more is turns out that I have been right for all I have had as intuitive knowledge. The more I understand why I was so angry that nobody knows about Magura cave paintings. Many scientists would really understand their own work, if they just knew about the paintings.
