The original pfilosophy and religion of Europe …some 14 500 years ago all the population of Europe vanished and was replaced by a new one…
The DNA analysis of ancient Europeans has shown that by the end on the Last Glacial period, some 14 500 years ago, all the population of Europe vanished and was replaced by a new one.
The whole publication can be found HERE in Bulgarian.
And on the 20th of February 2013 I published my interpretation of a Magura cave scene under the name „The history of mankind started 43 000 years ago…“
In it I describe my reading of the following scene:
as a scene of human history, because the strip in the upper right part of the scene can be read as a sequence of periods.
We can determine its start – this is the right end of the strip. It is cut and there is no way to go to the right from it. Therefore we can only go to the left from this point and by having only one direction to move from this place we know that the right end is the start of the sequence.
The left end of the strip is open which serves as the open end of a story – we can move further to the left which is the direction of the future. Thus I assumed that the direction of development of the story goes from the right side to the left.
We know that a person writes his story to his present date, therefore the left, open end of the strip must be the present day of the author of the scene. This was the date wsen the scene was painted on the walls of the cave. If we can determine this date and the duration of one segment of the strip, we can calculate the dates of the events shown on the strip.
I have found no specific record among Magura cave paintings which deals only with the open end of the strip, but there are paintings which may give information on it.
There is another scene located to the right from what I find to be the Scene of human history. It is the Solar calendar. It contains and element, which is directly related to the shape, numbering and and the events on the strip. The „wheel“ has 13 rays and 13 segments, respectively. Seven of the segments are enclosed meaning they are on one type. There is a mark over the eighth segment marking it as a special one. Then the remaining five segments are open meaning they are of another type. The rotation of this „wheel“ creates the sequence we find in the strip therefore I make two conclusions:
- the segments of the strip do represent consecutive periods;
- additional information about the nature and behaviour of the strip is present at its neighbouring scene – the Solar calendar.
Then my attention is directed to the following paintings:
Obviously, this is the Sun and I recognize four positions of Earth around it:
This scene has another level of reading when the object in the middle is the planet Earth and the four symbols around it present four positions of the Moon around it.
Keep this in mind and soon I will explain its role in the reading of the Scene of the human history.
We see that there are two dots inside the Sun. I make a assumption that they may mean the period Second sun which started some 14 600 years ago. Note that I did this in the beginning of 2013 which is 3 years before the publication about the DNA resutls cited here.
Both the Solar calendar scene and the Scene of human history, as I call it, look in the same way in terms of technology and material used for their depiction – similar color and shine of the pigment, similar width of the lines and they contain interconnected elements. The two scenes should be created at the same time, possibly even by the same person. Therefore the general date in the Solar calendar must be the general date of creation of the Scene of human history.
Because of this, I assume that the date of the left, open end of the strip must be 14 600 years ago – in the beginning of the period Second sun.
Now I need to specify the duration of one segment.
Now I understand this symbols as the planet Earth and I pay attention to the spiral around it and to the fact that one of the rays draws the spiral as the whole object rotates.
I supply a scheme showing the track of the North pole along the star sky due to the precession of equinoxes. Note that both spirals look in exactly the same way and that both are drawn by a „ray“ or the axes/poles of the objects. This means that it is possible that ancient people knew about the precession of equinoxes and they have depicted it. One precession cycle takes 25 920 years to complete and is divided into 12 sub-periods: the cosmic or zodiac eras one of which lasts for 2 160 years.
As I assume the author of the two scenes knew about the precession of equinoxes and as he has drawn the spiral and the rays in such way that rays intersect the spiral in 24 points, he or she most probably had the concept of 12 sub-period with duration of 2 160 years each.
I use this number in my assumptions about the strip and thus I get the following:
Back in the beginning of 2013 this was only a mental construction, just a product of thinking and intuition, but I had no proof.
The first check I did was to search for a significant event some 25 000 years ago, big enough to break and change the strip of life. This search was very easy and I found that the Last Glacial period started some 25 000 – 26 000 years ago, depending on the specific source. The beginning of the Last Glacial period is indeed a significant enough event to break and change the strip of life, to be remembered and to be written down in a scene.
So far everything was nice and I had a match in the middle of the strip. Two more matches were needed – in the two ends.
Later on I came upon the following map showing the migration of people across Europe:
This are the migration routes of Cro-Magnons according to the discoveries of artifacts. The numbers represent time in thousands of years.
One can clearly see that Cro-Magnons reached the present territory of Northern and North-western Bulgaria some 40 000 – 43 000 years ago. This is a perfect match to what calculated to be the beginning of the strip – a new mankind means the beginning of a new history.
Some more time passed and I came upon a theory about the evolution of religions:
One of the presented religions is European animism:
which, apparently, originated in Europe. Its origins have been stated to be some 42 000 years ago – again ax excellent match to my interpretation of the scene. One can see that the symbol used for European animism is identical to a very large number of Magura cave paintings:
I asked myself the following question: where were those people when the European animism originated, some 42 000 years ago? I look at the map of migrations and I have the answer – they were in the present territory of North-western Bulgaria, where Magura cave is located.
Thus I have a really good match at the same point and time. With this both the beginning and the middle of the strip match perfectly to real events which have the same meaning as it was assumed for the strip.
Then I came upon a publication in New Scientist which states the following: Europe went through a major population upheaval about 14,500 years ago, at the end of the last ice age, according to DNA from the bones of hunter-gatherers.
Read the publication for more detail. What is important to me is that I have an exact match for the left end of the strip as I understand it. It is the end of the story.
Now, pay attention to the fact that the right part of the strip consists of squares and the left part consists of rectangles. The purpose of this is two express different populations and different way of life.
And do you think that this part of the strip looks like DNA? I think it does for the simple reason that it really does:
Now, let’s suggest that this means DNA or it means a specific type of people. The, we should come to the conclusion that there was one type of people before the break of the strip, then there was another type of people after the break but those people also vanished in the left end of the strip.
Is there any sense in this assumption?
The coming of new people to Europe is indeed the start of a new genetic line and this happened some 42 000 – 43 000 years ago for the region of Magura cave.
The last remains of Neaderthals date back to some 25 000 years ago.
In the strip we see the end of Neaderthals.
Because of this the type of the strip’s segments changes and this new strip lasts for five periods. Then we have a new extinction. The publication in the New Scientist proves this assumption – that population of Europe was replaced by a new one.
In this way I have found a number of ways in which archaeological findings prove a logical reading of a cave scene.
Are there more proofs?
Kozarnika cave is located near to Magura cave:
The distance between them is only 12 km.
A number of very important artifacts have been dicovered in Kozarnika cave over the past 20 years. The earliest European human remains dating some 1,4 mln of years, amulets, tools, etc.
During the archaeological expredition of 2016 the team found an image of a fish carved on a bone. There is information about it in this publication in Bulgarian. This fish has been identified as salmon which occasionnaly appears in Danube river passing by some 25 km away from the cave. Remains of salmon have been found in the archaeological layers of Kozarnika cave. Obviously, those people from Kozarnika cave were able and used to travel the distance of 25 km for food. Therefore, it should be even easier for them to travel the distance of 12 km to Magura cave and most probably the two caves were not archaeologically separate. Archaeological excavations in Magura cave in 2012 have revealed that the cave has been invabited from 40 000 to 50 000 years ago.
Having in mind the coinciding periods and the relatively small distance, both caves should be occupied by representatives of the same culture.
This makes it very probable that the findings of Kozarnika cave are related to the paintings in Magura cave.
The artifact with the salmon depiction on it is said in the interview to be the first depiction in the world. Its age has been identified as 43 000 years – in the period when the first modern people came to Europe – the Cro-Magnons as the artifact was discovered in layers which show their first presence here.
Now you understand that things have started to match even better. The first Cro-Magnons were here 43 000 years ago and they created the first depiction in the world. Therefore they should be completely able to create also the first cave paintings in the world.
An amulet dating some 26 000 years and a piece from a stauette of the Goddess-Mother dating some 25 000 years were also discovered in Kozarnika cave. Why in this short period of time – 25 000 – 26 000 years ago people started to create artifacts of cult?
Some significant event should occur to provoke the need to create ritual artifacts. Indeed, the Last Glacial period started exactly in this period and it perfectly matches my interpretation of the strip:
I think that the amulet and the statuette were created as a reaction to the dramatic events some 25 400 years ago when the way of life changed.
I believe I have presented enough proof that the proposed reading of the strip is correct.
In addition, I think that there are two groups of pantings according to their age. Some of the paintings are convex and the reat are plain.
The convexity may be the result of paint protecting the cave wall from erosion. The surroiding wall continues to erode leaving the painting convex over a great period of time. Then the convex paintings must be older and the plain paintings must be newer.
These are all paintings of animals in Magura cave:
I made a separation according to the degree of convexity – convex or plain:
The paintings is red are convex and the paintings in black are plain.
We see that the convex paintings represent animal species which used to live on the Balkan peninsula but have long ago extinct except for the dog. And there are no modern animal species among them. Meanwhile, the plain paintings represent only modern animal species. This is a proof that there were two separate periods of painting in Magura cave and the two period were separated by a very long time span.
My assumption is that the first paintings were created some 43 000 years ago – in the beginning of the strip of human history:
And the last paintings were created in the left end of the strip – some 14 600 years ago.
A proof of this is the discovery of an ivory plate in a cave in Germany:
The plate contains an image which is an exact analog of the paintings in Magura cave. The plate is dated between 32 500 and 38 000 yaers and it is thought to have been brought to the present territory of Germany with the migration of Cro-Magnons:
The only way to make an exact analog is to make a copy. Therefore, the model had to be present by that time meaning that the first of Magura cave paintings should exist when Cro-Magnons moved from the Balkan peninsula to Western Europe. And that time is 42 000 – 43 000 years.
All assumptions, findings and artifacts match in a coherent story.
Those ancient people created a new philosophy on the Balkan peninsula and spread it through Europe. A powerful volcano erupted near the island of Sicily some 39 000 years ago and covered Central and Eastern Europe with one meter of ash. This forced people to flee and killed many of them. Fortunately, the philosophy of Magura cave paintings had already moved to the West and saved there. Very long time later it came back to the balkans and the paintings were completed.
The completion of the paintings in Magura cave happened in the last days of this ancient mankind – in the left end of the strip of human history.
Thus we see the 28 000 years long history of a great European mankind which created the greatest philosophy in the world. Because of it we have alphabets, knowledge of numeric records and operation, atronomy, alchemy, the bases of Christianity, Buddhism, reincarnation, knowledge of magic.
Magura cave was chosen to be the library of this philosophy.
Later on, a lot of knowledge has been spread from this library to the whole world thus creating the global enlightened mankind:
Although 28 000 years passed between the two stages of painting the style and the meaning of the paintings remained the same. This is only achievable if the same culture comes back to finish the record.
