Tech Trends - Celestial Arts and Scripts

Technology Trends - "Celestial Arts and Scripts" The show begins by introducing "The San Jose Portable Pebble", which is a Stone Age artifact with hole patterns that resemble star patterns and notches that can be used to find celestial north. Cave drawings are presented as representations of prehistoric constellations picturing mammoth, bison, and extinct animals. Then the show focuses on how ancient writing systems used star patterns to form the signs and letters used for writing. The Phaistos Disc and other major inscriptions are shown to be star patterns and petroglyphs from all over the world are shown to be based on ancient constellations. Guest: Lance Carter. Host: Steve Nagy.

Tech Trends - Celestial Cave Art

Technology Trends - "Celestial Cave Art" Ancient art was celestial. The shapes and symbols seen in cave paintings, petroglyphs, and inscriptions are ancient asterisms or constellations. The tradition of seeing and drawing signs, symbols, and shapes, and scripts in the stars began before 40,800 BCE and continued until modern times. This presentation examines ancient cave art, symbols, glyphs, and patterns from prehistoric Africa and Europe and shows how they represent the starry sky back then and through the ages and shows those prehistoric graphics as early constellations. Marks, signs, and symbols have been engraved, carved, scratched, chiseled, drawn, and painted on cave walls and ceilings and on rocks and other materials such as wood or bone for thousands of years. Cave paintings and rock inscriptions appeared in Europe at least 40,800 years ago and in Africa nearly 100k years ago. Hosted by Steve Nagy.

 Tech Trends - Celestial Arts and Scripts

Technology Trends - "Celestial Cave Art of Prehistoric Europe" The show begins with Lascaux, France cave paintings, which are seen as ancient constellations against a starry background from thousands of years ago. The shape and positions of the cave paintings and shapes was determined by how those people looked at the sky and patterns of stars. The cave painting artwork is extracted and then projected over star maps, some with modern constellation lines for reference. The outlines in black are converted to color and neatly overlay lines of brighter magnitude stars across the sky. Then Coa Valley, Spain petroglyphs are shown to be celestial as well. Then, the Trois-Freres Cave cricket and a cave bison are shown in the sky. Altamira, Spain cave art is explored. Chauvet Cave art in France such as bison are also seen as celestial. By seeing ancient cave art in a different way a new understanding of ancient thinking may be achieved. Guest: Lance Carter. Host: Steve Nagy.

The Celestial Pebble of San Jose, California

Abstract: This paper provides photographs of the San Jose Portable Pebble and shows its possible use as a star map. The dot and notch patterns on the San Jose Portable Pebble resemble constellations such as Lyra, Draco, and Ursa Major, and Ursa Minor. The inscription appears to be in Latin or Phoenician, but it is not clear in these preliminary photos. One letter of the inscription looks like a V and is deeply scratched, apparently with a very sharp instrument. The end letter of the inscription is an ancient T. The graphic shapes, including holes, notches, and scratches are converted to magenta and projected over a star map for 1950 BCE. The pebble is then projected over the star map to show how it could be used for star sighting.

Celestial Prehistoric Portable Rock Art

Celestial Moli del Salt Slab

The Moli del Salt rock engravings and some ancient European mobile or portable rock art works appear to be based on ancient asterisms, signs, or constellations. The Moli del Salt portable rock engravings picture ancient constellations that use the same place in the night sky to form their graphics as other European mobile rock art.
