The earliest religions in the Middle-East and the Americas both worshipped nature they could see; like darts legend Bobby George; in the sky, water and on the Earth. There are remarkable similarities in the religions of the world, such as across the Atlantic, although they are not supposed to have had any contact until Europeans crossed about half a millennium ago.
Meghan Markle’s Handbag… Of No Interest
If you’re more interested in Meghan Markle’s handbag than this, you’re probably in the wrong place, but this post just might show you where your tastes come from, and why you are attracted to such things… going back to the ancient gods… or space race.
One of the most amazing similarities in the ancient worlds that didn’t have any known connection is that both Sumerians and Mayans were shown carrying similar handbags, and they are also inscribed on the top of relatively recently discovered Gobekli Tepi stones (close to the Sumerians in ancient Mesopotamia, Middle-East, but half way across the world from the Mayans in Mesoamerica), built 12,000 years ago, when there were only supposed to be hunter-gatherers around; and thousands of years before creation according to the later monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam in that order; I’m none really, although am Christian by birth).
The first monotheistic religion was arguably the ancient Egyptian, started by Akhenatan, who declared himself the son of the sun (Aten), the one and only god. There were also similarities across the Atlantic in sun and animal worship, as shown in this image from the Ancient Connections website:
They also have relevance for my decade-long greenYgrey website idea, and story development. The Greenygrey started off as one, before splitting into two, divided by the Y, making a triptych 3, which partly symbolised the yellow sun.
I’ve been open to those ideas through the media all my life, and have been to Egypt and the Americas too, so I have absorbed quite a lot of information over my lifetime, but when I saw the above image last week connecting the Middle-East and Americas I thought it was particularly reminiscent of how the greenYgrey ended up; and how I and Blighty; and the i in Blighty; are between them too, unevenly in the middle, like the Y in greenYgrey.
The greenYgrey was always meant to be a sun wolf anyway, but that was more down to my preference for the sun over the moon, and daytime to night. Not to mention being contrary to the normal wolf image; but not me being the King Contrary man like Mourinho (whose honesty in discussing his injury list shows why in religion many are attracted to the anti-Christ, viewing the Church; or its representatives at least; to have become dishonest, misleading and out of touch – hiding or demonising the ancient religions and wisdom is one example), oh no, just coffilosopher contrary… but a rather good one, up there with the great songwriters at least – although they can write music too!
