Cradle of Civilization

A Blog about the Birth of Our Civilisation and Development

Our background

Posted by Fredsvenn on November 19, 2014

Vi har mistet det vi bar med oss fra vårt felles urhjem – Portasar (Gobekli tepe), som betyr navle på armensk. Vi glemte sivilisasjonens gave, hva som for armenerne blir sett på som konseptene ar (ild/lys (skape)/kar (legge dødt/fundament),sumererne gikk under navnet me eller parşu, zoroastrerne aša eller arta/druj, egyptierne Maat/Isfet og kineserne ying/yang. Det er de to sidene av den nordiske gudinnen Hel. Vi gravla henne, førte henne ned til helvete. Deretter forrådte vi vår gud, og begynte å tilbe en annen. Og nå tilber vi Mammon.

Vi har et økonomisk system hvor vekst i seg selv er målet, mens verdier som frihet, likeverd og søskenskap har blitt glemt. Dette har gjort at vi er på avveier. Helt siden 1970-tallet har vi kun produsert/forbrukt mer uten at vi med dette har kommet videre når det kommer til å nå disse målene.

Vi har i de siste 40 åra drept hele 53 % av dyreartene, forbrukt stadig flere av våre dyrebare naturressurser og ødelagt stadig mer av naturen, som det kan sies at vi er i krig mot — dette på tross for at det er vår mor, som vi i tillegg er fullstendig avhengig av. Det er på tide med et systemskifte, hvor vi på nytt tar frem våre verdier og setter dem som mål i stedet.

Our economical system have lost its function, if it ever had one. The goal seems to be economical growth in it self. But money is a tool and should not be a goal.

In Western countries people have not become more happy, and life have not become more meaningful than it was in the 1970s, but still we produce/consume all the time more. In fact people find their existens all the time more meaningless, and this prevent happyness.

What we have to do is to get controll over our economical system and use it to complete the goals, like justice, freedom and peace, we have. Simply to make better world for all of us. And the completion of these social and cultural goals should all be done in a sustainabal way. What we in other words need is a new paradigm, we need another economical system.

Hebat, also transcribed, Kheba or Khepat, was the mother goddess of the Hurrians, known as “the mother of all living”. She is also a Queen of the deities. Hebat is married to Teshub and is the mother of Sarruma and Alanzu, as well mother-in-law of the daughter of the dragon Illuyanka. The name may be transliterated in different versions – Khebat with the feminine ending -t is primarily the Syrian and Ugaritic version.

In the Hurrian language Hepa is the most likely pronunciation of the name of the goddess. In modern literature the sound /h/ in cuneiform sometimes is transliterated as kh. During Aramaean times Hebat also appears to have become identified with the goddess Hawwah, or Eve. Hebat was venerated all over the ancient Near East. Her name appears in many theophoric personal names.

The mother goddess is likely to have had a later counterpart in the Phrygian goddess Cybele (Phrygian: Matar Kubileya/Kubeleya “Kubeleyan Mother”, perhaps “Mountain Mother”; Lydian Kuvava; Greek: Kybele, Kybebe, Kybelis), an originally Anatolian mother goddess.

Cybele, ancient Phrygia’s only known goddess, and probably the highest deity of the Phrygian State, may have evolved from an Anatolian Mother Goddess of a type found in the earliest Neolithic at Çatalhöyük (in the Konya region), where the statue of a pregnant goddess seated on a lion throne was found in a granary dated to the 6th millennium BCE.

This corpulent, fertile Mother Goddess appears to be giving birth on her throne, which has two feline-headed hand rests. In Phrygian art of the 8th century BCE, the cult attributes of the Phrygian mother-goddess include attendant lions, a bird of prey, and a small vase for her libations or other offerings.

The inscription Matar Kubileya at a Phrygian rock-cut shrine, dated to the first half of the 6th century BCE, is usually read as “Mother of the mountain”, a reading supported by ancient Classical sources, and consistent with Cybele as any of several similar tutelary goddesses, each known as “mother” and associated with specific Anatolian mountains or other localities: a goddess thus “born from stone”.

In the 2nd century CE, the geographer Pausanias attests to a Magnesian (Lydian) cult to “the Mother of the Gods”, whose image was carved into a rock-spur of Mount Sipylus. This was believed to be the oldest image of the goddess, and was attributed to the legendary Broteas.

The gigantic remains of such a figure at Mount Sipylus, though lacking inscriptions and much eroded, are consistent with later representations of a seated Cybele, with a supporting or attendant lion beneath each arm.

Xi Wangmu (Hsi Wang-mu; literally: “Queen Mother of the West”) is a Chinese goddess known from the ancient times. The first historical information on her can be traced back to oracle bone inscriptions of the fifteenth century BCE that record sacrifices to a “Western Mother”.

Even though these inscriptions illustrate that she predates organized Taoism, she is most often associated with Taoism, which connected with the dualism of the Armenian concepts of Ar/Char, the Zoroastrian Aša and Arta/druj, the Sumerian concepts about me or parşu, the Egyptian Maat/Isfet or the two sides of the Nordic goddess Hel.

At Pessinos in Phrygia, the mother goddess—identified by the Greeks as Cybele—took the form of an unshaped stone of black meteoric iron, and may have been associated with or identical to Agdistis, Pessinos’ mountain deity.

The Kaaba or Ka’aba (Arabic al-Kaʿbah, “The Cube”), is a cuboid building at the centre of Islam’s most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is the most sacred point within this most sacred mosque, making it the most sacred location in Islam. Wherever they are in the world, Muslims are expected to face the Kaaba – i.e. when outside Mecca, to face toward Mecca – when performing salat (prayers).

The Kaaba was thought to be at the center of the world, with the Gate of Heaven directly above it. The Kaaba marked the location where the sacred world intersected with the profane; the embedded Black Stone was a further symbol of this as a meteorite that had fallen from the sky and linked heaven and earth.
