Portasar (Armenian), also known as Gobekli Tepe (Turkish) in the Armenian Highland is the omphalo of our civilization and represent the place where our civilization was created 12000 years ago.
From Portasar our civilization spread in all directions 7000 BC. The people were Proto-Indoeuropean, and connected to haplogroups like E, G, R1b, J1, and J2. The Urartian (Armenian) culture, also known as the Hurrians, is the nuclear of this civilization, but local variations was being created. However, all of them carried with them, the Neolithic package, our civilization.
We left what we knew as the garden of eden and spread our civilization to Mesopotamia in the south, to Canaan and further to North Africa, including Egypt, in the southwest, to Balkan and Europe in the west, to Caucasus and the Pontic stepes in the north, to China and Southeast Asia in the east, to India and South Asia and to Central Asia and Iran in the southeast.
In Greek, the word omphalos means “navel”. In Greek lore, Zeus sent two eagles across the world to meet at its center, the “navel” of the world. In the ancient world of the Mediterranean, it was a powerful religious symbol.
Portasar, meaning umbilical cord in Armenian, is a channel between the worlds. This cord serves as a portal between the two worlds that form a human. It is connected to the gods Haia, Janus and Portunus – the “door-keeper”, the god of beginnings and transitions, and thereby of gates, doors, doorways, passages and endings – the god of oportunities.
Armenia has a rich culture and history and prides itself as one of the oldest civilizations of the world, dating back to Biblical Noah and his Ark. It is the first nation to adopt Christianity as a state religion in AD 301. Since then, the Armenian people have identified strongly with their Christian faith.
In the Spring of 2015, the Human Odyssey comes to print. This epic compendium of short stories will focus on the myths and legends of history, re-exploring the epic tales that have defined world culture for thousands of years. Starting with the superstitions of prehistory, this anthology will pass through six key eras of human mythology and beyond:
Stone Age Series: Witness the origin tales of mythology as never seen before, where gods rose from the earth, dragons scourged the lands and shamanic-warriors vied for forbidden knowledge. Learn about the dominion of the Gods, the wonders they created and a catastrophic event that laid waste to their empire.
Bronze Age Series: Revisit the classic myths of antiquity, a world of fallen gods, heroic quests and power crazed kings. Follow tomb raiders who scoured the depths of sunken cities, heroes who battled immortal beasts and a changeling who unlocked the secrets of the underworld.
Iron Age Series: Enter a world of prophetic visions and mechanical talking heads. The gods of the old world may have vanished, but their legacy still endures in the tales of powerful relics and mysterious beings. Those who possessed such artefacts were said to wield great magic, but could they be trusted with such divine power?
Medieval Series: Take a walk on the dark side and enter the realm of the beast. A secret world, hidden from the religious furore of mortals, is now in danger of becoming extinct. Guardians of the arcane (witches, vampires and werewolves) are forced into hiding from a church hell bent on their destruction. Can the heathens of the middle ages protect the secrets of the old world, or will they burn trying?
Early Modern Series: Explore lost cities and forgotten continents in an age of science and discovery. Behold the terrifying blood cult of the Inca’s, flying mystics from the east and the summoning of old and powerful beings. This is a world haunted by secret societies, demonic sorcery and immortals with a taste for blood.
Scientific Series: Technology meets Mythology in this final series as the Human Odyssey reaches its ultimate climax. Follow the techno-wizards of the new age as they try to unlock the secrets of our mythical past. Discover who the gods really were, where they came from and what their plans were for the human race. Will humanity rise to the challenge of their legacy, or will the final myth – a prophecy of absolute annihilation – come of age?
