The ancient sumerians referred to otherworldly places which were accessed via gateways into the underworld, and gates up to the heavens.
Originally posted by undoI guess it all depends on how much you know about ancient civilizations and their texts. Do you know anything about ancient Sumer?

Mt. Meru is a real mountain in western Tibet also called Mt. Kalais isn't it?
Circling the Sacred Mountain
To Asians Mt. Kailash is seen as the axis mundi their most sacred mountain. Mt. Kalaish is at the heart of Bonpo, Buddhist and Hindu scriptures. Each holds different beliefs, but the underlying reality is the same. The Hindus believe that Shambu Shiva dwells on the summit of Kailash with his consort Parvati.
The Buddhists believe that you gain spiritual merit by circumambulating her and their name for her is Mt. Meru or another name for her is Kang Rinpoche or The Precious Snow mountain. This is the key to liberation.
The Bonpos, the original shamanic people of Tibet, are the ones who originated the practice of flying prayer flags on the mountain. The Bon call the mountain Mt. Tise and the nearby lake, Lake Mapham (Manasarovar). They beleive it to be the birthplace of Shenrab Miwoche.
Kailash is a 22,028-foot peak known in the west as Mt. Everest. To the faithful of Asia Kailas is the supreme mountain. When they are ready to pursue the path to enlightenment they go to Mt. Kailash to reach nirvana.
Global warming is having a negative impact on the snow levels on Mt. Kailash. So please be conscious and use green energy in any way possible.

It doesn't take Jack long to figure out that he's been thrown back in time, roughly 10hours. He and Teal'c are both experiencing the same day over again. They are checked out byDr. Frasier and given a clean bill of health. After they predict the unscheduled arrivalof SG-12, General Hammond and the others are convinced they are not delusional. Theafternoon mission to P4X-639 is cancelled.
Physicists have proposed various theories on how time travel could be made possible in our reality, but in the Stargate SG-1 universe, it is already proven as fact.
Interference with the formation of the wormhole through the magnetic discharge of solar flares is one way in which Stargate SG-1 proposes that SG-1 could travel through time. In the episodes, 2.21 "1969" and 4.16 "2010", the wormhole is bent by solar flares. Depending on which side of the sun the wormhole is formed, the traveler is either transported to the past or to the future.
The computations done normally by the DHD to compensate for stellar drift had to be accounted for by Samantha Carter in her dialing computer software. These computations also had to account for how close the wormhole formed to the sun. Carter had done research into other uses of the Stargate technology, including time travel.

Part 1: What are Traversable Wormholes?
• Hyperspace tunnels thru spacetime, which can:
1. connect together remote regions within our universe
2. connect together different universes
3. connect together different space dimensions (for higher dimensional wormholes)
4. connect together different chronological periods within the same space region (backwards time travel!)
