Aşağı Göbekli II as the Third "Gobekli" in Sanliurfa Marking Stars of Cancer on the Ground in Hermetic Tradition, as Above, so Below: A Bull, a Horse and a Leaping Frog

This posting is the second posting relating to Aşağı Göbekli (second part), following the last posting on Aşağı Göbekli (first part) as an analysis of map locations at that site.

As already indicated in a previous posting, it complements our interpretation of the meaning of the better known Göbekli Tepe and the lesser known Göbekli Köyu as locations of ancient land survey by astronomy, marking stars of Cancer.

This posting will be followed by some related postings about ancient sites in Upper Mesopotamia that also fit into our inter-connected astronomical land survey analysis of the Fertile Crescent and of course we will have some interesting maps of not only the entire region, but also of selected ancient sites.

Here is our tracing of prominent lines and what appear to be mound formations on the original map at Google Earth:

Taking that drawing and reducing it only to the traced lines, here is our simple line drawing result for the traced Google Earth map of Aşağı Göbekli.

The brightest stars form a figure that looks a bit like a bull (stars via Starry Night Pro at The head of the horse appears to have been added later and the remnant of a bull's head can still be seen.

The second small figure above the heads of the horse and bull looks like it is a leaping frog or toad, kurbağa in Turkish, somewhat similar in sound to the later "crab" for Cancer. Perhaps there is a connection in development.

The following image shows very simply how the brightest stars in that area of the sky between delta Cancri and beta Cancri could be interpreted to give rise to men seeing the upper figures at Aşağı Göbekli:

Now let us look at the entire area of Aşağı Göbekli for our decipherment of the earthly locations as mirroring stars of the heavens, true to the hermetic principle, "as above, so below".

Our map of stars in more detail for the respectively applicable geographic locations gives the following correspondence of stars in Cancer to locations at Aşağı Göbekli. We view this to be the decipherment of Aşağı Göbekli:

We repeat here that we have never been to the actual geographic site in Turkey and that our analysis is based solely on online map materials. We do not know what the mound-like viz. barrow constructions on the ground are, that we equate with star locations, but they definitely fit the stellar analysis.

For those interested, here is a close-up of those mound or barrow formations in the area of the horse's head, and we presume they shine gold because the sun in shining upon them:

That completes our analysis of the "three Göbeklis" in the area of Sanliurfa.

Our next postings look at the broader landscape of Upper Mesopotamia.

    The image on the cover was created using public domain space photos of Earth from NASA.


    Both book volumes contain the following basic book description:
    "Alice Cunningham Fletcher observed in her 1902 publication in the American Anthropologist
    that there is ample evidence that some ancient cultures in Native America, e.g. the Pawnee in Nebraska,
    geographically located their villages according to patterns seen in stars of the heavens.
    See Alice C. Fletcher, Star Cult Among the Pawnee--A Preliminary Report,
    American Anthropologist, 4, 730-736, 1902.
    Ralph N. Buckstaff wrote:
    "These Indians recognized the constellations as we do, also the important stars,
    drawing them according to their magnitude.
    The groups were placed with a great deal of thought and care and show long study.
    ... They were keen observers....
    The Pawnee Indians must have had a knowledge of astronomy comparable to that of the early white men."
    See Ralph N. Buckstaff, Stars and Constellations of a Pawnee Sky Map,
    American Anthropologist, Vol. 29, Nr. 2, April-June 1927, pp. 279-285, 1927.
    In our book, we take these observations one level further
    and show that megalithic sites and petroglyphic rock carving and pictographic rock art in Native America,
    together with mounds and earthworks, were made to represent territorial geographic landmarks
    placed according to the stars of the sky using the ready map of the starry sky
    in the hermetic tradition, "as above, so below".
    That mirror image of the heavens on terrestrial land is the "Sky Earth" of Native America,
    whose "rock stars" are the real stars of the heavens, "immortalized" by rock art petroglyphs, pictographs,
    cave paintings, earthworks and mounds of various kinds (stone, earth, shells) on our Earth.
    These landmarks were placed systematically in North America, Central America (Meso-America) and South America
    and can to a large degree be reconstructed as the Sky Earth of Native America."
