We are already certain, and have said so in previous books, that there has been at least one major forgotten episode in human history – a lost civilization destroyed in the great cataclysms at the end of the last Ice Age. Much connects that civilization to the epoch of 10,500 BC. But the possibilities we are considering here are even more remarkable: the possibility that the system of knowledge once practised by that civilization may have been salvaged from its wreckage by survivors and the possibility that ways may have been devised to distribute the knowledge around the world and transmit it to the future, down through the generations, perhaps even into modern times. This would explain why what appears to be the same well-thought-out system of spiritual initiation using sky-ground dualities in the quest for the immorality of the soul – a system of unknown origins and antiquity – is able to resurface, refreshed on each occasion, in ancient Egypt in the Pyramid Age, in the Hermetic texts of the early Christian era, in Cambodiaand in Central America at the end of the first millennium AD, perhaps in Micronesia, and perhaps also in Easter Islandwith its strange aboriginal names: Te-Pito-О-Те-Henua, ‘the Navel of the World’, and Mata-Кi-Те-Rani, ‘Eyes Looking at Heaven’.

What do Gods carry in “handbags”?
In earlier publications on our website you could have seen numerous images of mythological divine beings carrying peculiar “handbags” in their hands. Unfortunately, neither legends nor myths contain specific information about them, although we did manage to find some. There were surely relevant explanations in the past, but humanity has lost understanding, so today we are hardly able to answer the following question with confidence: “What do Gods carry in “handbags?” Why were there so many identical or very similar symbolic elements in various historical epochs on different continents? Well, many people might ask whether such riddles should be solved at all when everything rises in price, when climatic conditions deteriorate and the world approaches a brink of the third global war. As for me, I believe they should be.
Indeed, today we have to solve complex puzzles imprinted in stone for millennia by our farsighted ancestors. At that, judging by some discoveries of contemporary progressive researchers, a clear impression arises that the ancients were far from being savage ignoramuses, hunters and gatherers as mainstream historians endeavour to impose on us. Our forefathers obviously had totally different priorities in their life, which enabled them to see a completely different picture of the world. Moreover, let me admit that, should our ancestors live nowadays, they would certainly be astonished by stupidity and absolute senselessness of what we have built, developed and achieved today.
Let me start from a statement that in ancient times Gods were those whom people mostly carved in stone, and this is beyond doubt. Owing to the information collected in our Symbolism and Mythology section, we may assume more or less confidently that those Gods were some Spiritual Beings who visited the three-dimensional reality on the Earth from time to time by a certain plan. Last year I attempted to lift the veil of this riddle in my analytical article Bearded God. Who is He?, but I should note the initial impulse to the subject had been conveyed by the journalist and writer Graham Hancock. The video below again shows his presentation of the Magicians of the Gods, where the subject of our current interest is referred to in the last 5 minutes:
What is going on here?
- he says twice. Indeed, numerous peculiar analogies engraved in stone may be traced in the history of human civilization in various places and on different continents. Moreover, it is quite interesting that many researchers, who are prompted by the genuine aspiration for true knowledge, when they study historical records more profoundly, arrive at approximately the following question: what was the cause of rather sharp outbursts of cultural and industrial growth on the earth when there were no apparent long-term natural evolutional preconditions for those? For some reason mainstream science persistently keeps on ignoring the fact that in nearly all cases of such outbursts medicine, metallurgy, agriculture, animal husbandry, writing and understanding of complex engineering and construction emerged unexpectedly and for no visible reasons.
Just like many other people who are free from deep-rooted orthodox blinders, I approach a similar logical question: as a matter of fact, owing to what or rather WHOM, peoples and cultures achieved their “full-flowing” flourishing, often leaving traces of technologies that cannot be explained until today? In my opinion, this is a very serious question leading to an assumption that such flourishing was due to interference of the Lord’s will and of specific civilizers who brought spiritual and practical knowledge to humanity. A vivid example is surely Ancient Egypt of the times of the Fourth Dynasty when the Great Pyramids were built. We have published numerous materials about it, so now I will only summarise: 4.5 thousand years after the construction of the Egyptian pyramids, in the current age of the so-called scientific and technical progress we still have no idea how and for which purpose those giant megalithic structures were built, not to mention our total impotence to repeat or copy them.
There are numerous examples of such kind, and the ancient stones witness that. Sensible people, especially those who have familiarised themselves with information in the AllatRa book, understand very well that mainstream science has covered such “blank spots” in history under an iron curtain long ago, and corresponding subjects are strictly tabooed. I won’t describe the Archons’ policy over again, but will only draw a logical conclusion that throughout the history of mankind a single trend is noticeable and repeats itself by a pendulum principle: Knowledge is brought and given to people, and after a certain period of time people lose the Knowledge.
The next question is WHO brings the knowledge. We have already discussed and often recur to this subject, linking our earlier considerations with the current studies. Hopefully, our permanent readers already understand who exactly is meant.
Well, let us look at the “handbags” also referred to as “purses”:
The Vulture Stone. Göbekli Tepe
Popol Vuh. Central America
Gilgamesh, the king of the Sumerian city of Uruk, who ruled there between 2800 and 2500 BC
Quetzalcoatl, Ancient Mexico
The Tree of Life, Assyria
Palace of Ashurnasirpal II in the Assyrian Imperial capital of Nimrud
God Oannes, Sumer
ISIL vandals destroying monuments of ancient architecture
Let me present another video with an extended image gallery and certain geographic markers.
So, what are these handbags? Let me suggest a logical assumption that, when Gods take something in their hands in associative human images, this is certainly a very important burden and never a mere shopping bag with everyday items. In the article about Göbekli Tepe our author and historian Sviatoslav Sergeyev drew a parallel between the symbolism of such “handbags” and the times when Primordial Knowledge was brought into the world. A graphic example is the Vulture Stone in Göbekli Tepe. I support the author’s opinion and would only add a relevant image gallery habitual for my writing style.
HANDBAGS-WEIGHTS MADE OF STONE
Furthermore, in the world of archaeology there are such artefacts as “handbags” not attached to any figure or item. They are made of stone, and it’s so wonderful that the ancients used such a durable material. On the one hand, such artefacts may be regarded as weight-measuring instruments and called “weights”, while on the other hand I would add them to our subject, since obvious elements of spiritual knowledge are engraved on some of them, e.g. the lateral Aspects of a human being (a more extensive image gallery is available for review), which is a rather substantial point.
Let’s view the image gallery:
We could certainly explain all this by accidental coincidences as mainstream scientists usually do when they don’t have more solid evidence. However, the further longer list of analogies, where more and more facts are added with every new analytical publication, should lead every reasonable person to a newly emerging hypothesis of a single correlation between everything – the Knowledge of immortality of the human Soul, which today we have the honour of having in our hands.
So, what did Gods carry in their “handbags”? They carried spiritual knowledge.
We might interpret the Göbekli Tepe site as having also served as an instructional sanctuary, where (if we believe the statements of later cultures) civilizing skills might have been intentionally introduced to humanity. We find this same outlook expressed in myths that survive in some cultures. For example, among the Maori of New Zealand, one mythic storyline tells of how a deified ancestor named Tane ascended to a place where the gods lived and returned with three baskets filled with knowledge. Within the context of this type of myth, the notion of a basket comes to be associated symbolically with instructed knowledge.
An Egyptian term for “basket” hetep is a homonym for other features we also find at Göbekli Tepe. It can refer to “a place of peace or propitiation”, “the shrine of a god”, to a “slab of stone” (written with a glyph shaped like the Göbekli Tepe pillars), and to a “graving tool, stylus, chisel”. The term is formed from the same phonetic root het / get / chet that can imply the concept of a temple or sanctuary in various ancient languages.
Both the shape and temple / shrine symbolism of the handbag images is also reflected in later cultures such as ancient Egypt. In his book Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilization, Barry Kemp of the University of Cambridge in England discusses the attributes of a type of predynastic portable shrine called a seh that, in his view, became the prototype for temple architecture and symbolism in dynastic Egypt. He characterizes the seh as an early “tent” shrine, built from poles and cloth or animal skins. The lower part of the shrine was squared, much like a modern dining room cabinet, while the poles of the upper part were bent into the shape of a domed arch, creating a covered shelf. The overall shape is a match for the Göbekli Tepe figures, and presents a good physical and conceptual correlate to the handbag symbols. In his Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Sir E.A. Wallace Budge defines a phonetically-similar word sa as “a shrine or sanctuary in which a god or goddess was housed”.
When French anthropologist Marcel Griaule met with a Dogon priest named Ogotemmeli to discuss attributes of a Dogon shrine (a counterpart to a Buddhist stupa) that serves as the defining symbol of their cosmology, the blind teacher reached around the inside of his hut, searching with his hands until he found a woven basket to use as a physical prop to illustrate the symbolic attributes of the shrine…
