Though I do find this very interesting, it's in a way out of step with the poster. While I'm not an archeologist, the similarities between the
inscriptions on the Potok statue and those of ancient Sumerian cuneiform don't immediately jump out as anything extraordinarily spectacular. For one,
the direction of the writing in each item looks pretty different and there are other symbols on the Potok statue not seen in Sumerian writings, at
least by my eyes. Of course, there are similarities, and that's what I find so interesting...
There appears to be some heavy degree of cultural and artistic verisimilitude at work, with deep connections between human civilizations separated by
such vast expanses of land and water they might as well have not existed in each other's world. But perhaps this verisimilitude exists because all
humans share a common source and biology. And maybe there's more beyond even that -- a collective memory or consciousness of some kind, where our
instincts dwell and all the archetypes that form our inherited mental interpretations of the world are drawn from. Maybe that's a stretch, I dunno,
but I feel like there's more than just chemicals at work in the minds of men, and this discovery can be picked at and prodded from so many angles.
The truth is, unless we build a time machine and travel back to the past, we're liable never to know for sure. But don't let that keep you from
guessing and theorizing. If people just sat around and waited for proof and evidence to come down and answer all their questions, there would be no
such thing as progress.
