A paper was published in 2011 by Quaternary International about likely evidence for burial rites at the 50,000-year-old Neanderthal burial ground, Sima de las Palomas in Murcia, Southeast Spain.
Of course, the archaeologists are also saying that this find shows that Neanderthals were capable of symbolic thought. Why anyone should ever think otherwise I blame on Darwin, and his still-to-be-proven hypothesis that cognition must evolve. Ever since then, scientists have abruptly ceased any independent thinking on the subject, and all their work is predicated on the assumption that our early ancestors could not have been very intelligent for how else can you explain the marked absence, in the Pleistocene Era, of steel skyscrapers, drive-through MacDonalds and petrol-fuelled cars?
That our most ancient ancestors left us a wonderfully pristine environment in which to thrive escapes their notice ~ and that happy outcome, unfortunately, we haven’t been intelligent enough to find a way to achieve for our own children’s children. [/rant]
Anyway, these three merry Neanderthals were very obviously intentionally buried in a cave at Sima de las Palomas, and their graves were covered with rocks. The skeletons were found with their arms folded in a way to position their hands close to their heads. Remains of other Neanderthals have been found in this position, suggesting that this burial position held meaning.
In addition, the unburnt bones of two articulated panther paws were embedded in rock “in an area where the rest of the animal’s skeleton was conspicuous by its absence notwithstanding its proximity to the human skeletons,” the authors write.
It would be quite usual for these animal remains, treated in this way, to have ritual significance. And the panther appears to have been a power animal of shamanic significance even through to the present day.
“We cannot say much (about the skeletons) except that we surmise the site was regarded as somehow relevant in regard to the remains of deceased Neanderthals,” said lead author Michael Walker. “Their tools and food remains, not to mention signs of fires having been lit, which we have excavated indicating they visited the site more than once.
“We cannot say whether these three individuals were related, though it is likely,” he said, explaining that DNA has been denatured due to high ambient temperatures. “Surely the child was related to one of the others, though.”
The three skeletons represent some of the best-preserved, and most methodically excavated remains of Neanderthals.
“Such discoveries are extraordinarily uncommon,” Walker said.
So is the common sense of archaeologists.
The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar
Shamanic sexual healing and sex magic
The article above is by the shaman Ishtar Babilu Dingir, who is also the author of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar. It is about sex magic across dimensions that leads to greater self empowerment and creative intelligence, which she has been taught by her guiding spirits, over decades. Ishtar explains, however, that this is not a New Age teaching, but a very old one, and that she is merely reconstituting a practice in which our earlier ancestors were skilled and which they valued highly as a means of spiritual evolution.
In Part I, Ishtar lays the foundation stone for this teaching by showing the ancient artwork, iconography and orally transmitted lore underlying these sacred shamanic sex practices, which seem to have fallen out of favour after the destruction of the Mystery Groves and the Library of Alexandria.
Ishtar uses erotic poetry and engravings from ancient Egypt, Crete, India, Sumer and Babylon to show that sacred sex was part of the Kingship rites, and that the spirits were present in the lovemaking. She also finds evidence for the practice of the Faery Marriage, and what she believes is the original meaning of the Holy Grael which can be traced back to Neanderthals about 45,000 years ago.
Ishtar unravels ancient myths to show that they are really “Trojan horses” of sacred dramas which carry the secret keys of this ancient sex magic teaching. She is also the first to discover the allegorical sub-strata containing the keys to shamanic sex magic in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, based on alchemy and the Alchemical Marriage. She gives the same treatment to the story of the Woman at the Well in the Gospel of John.
Ishtar also describes how Babylon has been deliberately demonised by who we now call the Zionists and their proxy armies who have, for millennia, been trying to turn it into a pile of rubble. This is because of the power of the sacred geometry created by the Ishtar Gate and the Tower of Babylon, she says, which created the conditions for a portal, or a ‘Stargate’, into other dimensions.
In Part II of The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar, Ishtar shows the metaphysical anatomy of the human being, and then reveals the secret techniques of shamanic sex magic, so that people can try them for themselves.
Although this may seem like quite a complex subject, her past experience as a national newspaper journalist in the UK – Sunday Times, Sunday Express, Mail on Sunday – has given Ishtar the ability to explain some quite dense material in simple everyday language to produce an engaging, page-turner of a book. She also writes with great humour!
