Archaeologists from the National Institute of Archaeology and History have discovered nearly 3,000 cave paintings in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato. The paintings were found between August and October 2011 in 40 sites and are believed to be 2,000 years old. The pictographs were made with black, red, and yellow colors and show rituals, hunting, and battle scenes. Archaeologist Carlos Viramontes, director of the project that unearthed the paintings said, "A great diversity of animals is also to be seen, chiefly deer, canines, insects like centipedes and spiders, a great variety of birds, generally with their wings outspread, and radiating circles that probably represent the sun.”
Sources at the institute said that the discoveries were made between August and October 2011, but were not announced until specialists confirmed their antiquity and completed their analyses
It added that the oldest images refer to rites of passage, healing, prayers for rain and mountain worship, and were created by ancient hunter-gatherer societies that occupied the area during the first centuries A.D.
The expert said that the ancient hunter-gatherers who “created images on rockfaces were doing more than just leaving an imprint of their collective memory of historic, climatic and ritual occurrences – they painted the exposed fronts and sheltered backs of boulders as points of contact between the material and spiritual world.”

It's amazing how the ink stays so dark even after all these years. The red ink barely faded. My belief is that people from that era weren't as primitive as they have been made out to be.
i don't even know where to go from here but my intuition tells me i'm on to something...
"UV light and electrical discharge from lightning cause atmospheric gases to react chemically, forming Amino Acids (52 + 36 = 88). Amino Acids are "building blocks" of pretein. "New" molecules are organic + inorganic, known as aggregates. Molecules in "AG-re-gates" combine chemically to form "essential" organic components i.e.adenosine phosphates, nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, carbs. Certain proteins, lipids, carbs organize into a membrane around the aggregate. = cell "
"Lightning = The Leader consists of a narrow stream of negative electrons or charges, from the base of the clouds. 1) faint luminous streak descends from cloud to earth [spirit to matter] in short straight steps forming a jagged path. This process is called a Stepped Leader. 2) prior to meeting Earth, the stepped ladder is met by a streamer of positively charged particles rising from the ground; thus the two meet. A conductive path is completed to Earth. There immediately follows a powerful surge of electrons. This surge creates a flash called a Return Stroke.
