I'm late and it's now Thursday, but somewhere in the world it's still Wednesday.

Muchas gracias Red Pill Junkie.

I wasn't going to comment, but the Hancock video intrigued me, until he categorically denied the possibility that any of the petroglyphs could have been calendric in origin, claiming instead that the ancients were skilled in transdimensional travel.

Then I read the entropic article, and was pleased to discover a perfectly logical explanation for the universality in theme of petroglyphs.

Great news today, thanks for it!

Thanks MintyGiant!

Have you read David Lewis-Williams's Mind in the Cave. After reading it, I'm not convinced by the calendrical explanation for some rock art. Lewis-Williams is a materialist by the way, he's never taken psychedelics, and he doesn't believe what shamans see when they enter altered states of consciousness is real. I think you'll like it more than Graham Hancock's Supernatural.

Personally, I think what Graham proposes about interdimensional beings and accessing other levels of reality is possible, but I can't say for sure. I guess 'seeing is believing' really holds true in this situation!

Another thing about entoptic imagery -- its not just represented in rock art, but identical patterns are found in clothing & textiles, facial/body paint, and more. It hasn't gone out of fashion either, indigenous cultures worldwide continue to use today the exact same entoptic imagery they've used for thousands of years, the same imagery their ancestors painted on rocks, and they gain that entoptic imagery from shamanic visions. It all adds up.
