Many who study archaeology of ask how could the ancient Sumerian culture arisen so quickly? It seems like, Wham!, 5,000 years ago, they suddenly developed writing and agriculture within the blink of an eye. How did this happen?
There is now evidence of proto-Sumerian pictographs on the north shore of the Black Sea near Odessa in the Ukraine. This script is 22,000 years old and is associated with burial mounds found there. Tibetan monks make pilgrimages there because they recognize that area as their cultural birthplace. Vedic texts written in Sanskrit speak of Aratta. Even the Sumerian legends speak of it. Oddly enough Aratta is the birthplace of the Swastika and Yin-Yang symbols. This area is home to numerous large prehistoric cities of more than 10,000 people.
It seems Aratta was largely wiped out by the flooding of the Black Sea some 7,600 years ago when the Mediterranean sea broke through the Bosphorus Straits. After the cataclysmic collapse events of 12,800 and 11,600 years ago, this must have felt like the final straw. Although Aratta’s culture was largely matriarchal, they did perform child sacrifices for their burial mounds. They also recognized a bio-geological harmonic energy not recognized in the west, but generally accepted by Russian physicists.
