Janus, the Roman god of gates and doorways, and of good beginnings and endings was depicted with two heads facing in opposite directions and thus often associated with good judgement and the connection between the past and the future. (Roman Republican Janus coin, c. 225-212 B.C., didrachm or quadrigatus, silver, private collection, courtesy of the collector.)

Just to add and I am interested if I have missed this,
Where is the info on upcoming Stargate disclosure, or do you see this as a sign of it?

There is nothing on that thread related to the towers in the himalayas (actually, its not in the himalayas, its in the valleys) that connects to any star gate in any sense?
Read the tower in himalayas post carefuly....the scan of the page shows that most archaeologists consider these towers as defese based and not as any sort of portal/stargate.
How do you jump to conclusions about the star gate link?

In truth, the eight-point star is not unique to Morocco. It appears in cultures around the globe. It can be found on national flags and in religious iconography. It carries various meaning associated with each culture that utilizes it. The are eight-paths in the way of Buddah and eight immortals in Chinesse tradition. However, its universal symbolism is one of balance, harmony, and cosmic order. Its pattern is associated early astronomy, religion, and mysticism. It is symbolic of both stars and humanity’s earliest attempts to understand and communicate the order and unity inherent in Creation, nature’s rule.
The roots of the eight-point star symbol are in early astronomy. The eight lines are symbolic of the four corners of space (north, south, east, and west) and time (two solstices and two equinoxes).

Were myths created by people in the future who went back in time through the star gate to become gods?

Please find Star Gate disclosure data here. The data is still being analyzed.

So you're claiming that the people who live there, whose ancestors built the place got it all wrong?
That it takes an American to correctly interpret things built by another culture and that the builders are too unintelligent to be able to understand what it was they built?
And that artifacts found and identified on and around this site are completely wrong and the people of the area and the tribespeople who live there can't correctly identify things they make?
I'd like to see some proof that they don't understand the things they build and that an American with no knowledge of the country can do a better job of understanding them than the people whose families and ancestors built and used the sites.

I'm trying to think of the term that is used for this. When someone takes an object, artifact or ideas of a culture and associates it with a concept or idea of their own culture. Often erronously, often without understanding the context of the item in the original culture, is that the term or is it another?
In general, Janus was the patron of concrete and abstract beginnings, such the religion and the Gods themselves, of the world and the human life, of new historical ages, economical enterprises. He was also the God of the home entrance (ianua), gates, bridges and covered and arcaded passages (iani).
He was frequently used to symbolize change and transitions such as the progression of past to future, of one condition to another, of one vision to another, the growing up of young people, and of one universe to another. He was also known as the figure representing time because he could see into the past with one face and into the future with the other.
