I've read before that the spirals supposedly show an electric phenomena described by proponents of the electric universe theory. Personally, I think
the ancients drew spirals just because it's both easy and fun and there was no intended real meaning behind them other than decorative. I used to
draw spirals before I even knew they were spirals, that doesn't mean however that I drew spirals because I had some deep insights.
Moral of the story: Sometimes a spiral is just a spiral.
That is true, and a good point. However, if you view it from the standpoint of Mazlow, it would seem that at the time that these ancient spirals were
created, life was not really that easy. It would not be presumed that the people who drew them were prone to having the luxury of time to sit and
doodle by carving into hard stone.
When you talk about a hunter gatherer culture in such a primordial developmental state, do you think that there are folks in the groups that have the
time to sit and carve spirals into rock as just a fun activity meant to wile away the hours? Would it not be more reasonable that the lifestyle of
trying to survive was not conducive to frivolity? All actions were meant to mean something, meant to drive some sort of compelling behavior.
Those spirals are not just doodles. Not by a long shot. Not unless we can find evidence that these people were able to achieve a lifestyle which
would allow for a life of any level of luxury.
