Nobody will argue with that. If a person is honest in his studies he will have to understand that symbols morph. But so often even in the morphology
the core remains.
Here something for you.
The southwestern Indian mythical personage of Kokopelli. There are hundreds of rock art tributes to this person all over that southwest us. A full
study will show that Kokopelli is none other than a regional Pan interpretation.
Pan we know from Greek but the Greek version is a morph of the much older concept found in early Egypt and Mesopotamia.
Pan or Kokopelli is a musical playing, flute most often, mesmerizer of young women and animals with sound for any number of reasons. He has many
powers and attributes. He represents the ultimate in magical shamanistic powers. I could go on.
The southwestern US version found venerated in rock art is most like the ancient Egyptian version in comparison. Generally shown with phallus exposed
in both cultures. Many other similarities transfer in art but in more importantly the story is the same.
I have the good fortune to have been able to order and purchase books. Internet information may fail to serve here. Maybe not. At any rate there
should be enough info on Kokopelli on the net to compare him to Pan. The Egyptian info took a lot of digging in libraries.
