“The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion and politics, but it is not the path to knowledge; it has no place in the endeavor of science.”

-Carl Sagan, Cosmos, p. 91

Everyone, including children, knows that critical thinking is the core of science; and in normal sciences such as chemistry, physics, astronomy, critical thinking has never been devalued. However, rest assured that this is not the case in fields which are now committed to a faith-based mythological system. The deeper one goes into modern university training in paleontology, biology, anthropology—believing that one is receiving an objective educationthe more completely one’s original critical thinking abilities are wiped clean and replaced with evolutionary ‘template thinking.’ Those paying for such an education expecting to come out with new mental skills should realize that it is extremely difficult to regain original skills once they are lost to programming. In this case, one has become an unknowing adherent to an ideology which will limit ones ability to innovate. It is an ideology now in enough trouble to resort to disreputable actions such as suppression of conflicting data for the sake of self-preservation. As an example of the dilemmas engendered, consider the “evolution of language” question which has been called the “hardest problem in science.” Asking why language evolution is the hardest problem in science is like asking why 2+2=5 is the hardest problem in mathematics. Since the scientific answer to a rigged question is not likely to be forthcoming it may be time to start asking different questions.

In Part 2, “Censoring the world’s oldest human language,” I introduced ten proofs (out of hundreds similar) for the earliest motif duplicated on two separate artifacts 400,000 years old. Bilzingsleben-seriesPart3-Fig1_11-19-11vers_12-8-11repairs.jpgIn this part, I offer a follow-up to Fig. 7 of Part 2 where the caption reads, “The motifs share horizontal point coordinates.” Here, in Figs. 1-4, are some of the visible grid studies so that the statement will seem less cryptic.

The discovery and nature of the duplicated motifs is nothing less than hard ‘physical’ evidence of highly-sophisticated language in Homo erectus people. It equates with symbolism, linguistics, mathematics, philosophy, and representation. So, it is not simply my work which is being censored by the science community but the recorded knowledge of an entire culture.

When physical evidence is censored from publication in a scientific context one can rest assured that something other than a quest for truth is behind it and that the discipline of science has been compromised.

The real issue is that the results of the geometric studies presented in The Graphics of Bilzingsleben are in complete disagreement with how Homo erectus people are portrayed to the public by the evolutionary community. Simply stated, the evidence threatens only evolution and its advocates—not true science.

Unfortunately, the science community has made itself synonymous with evolution—an intellectual blunder. The take of evolutionary experts is that Homo erectus people were transitional ape-men incapable not only of modern language or speech but even of the ability to think as we do. They treat our ancestors in a patronizing manner with a constant focus on racial or physical traits of individuals forgetting that people are what they do, not what they look like. As for their mentality, they discuss them only in terms of survival as if this is as far as our ancestors got on an evolutionary road to becoming us. Nothing could be more misleading to the public’s perception of its heritage.

Fig. 1.  Cartesian grid studies proving beyond any doubt a conceptual connection between Bilzingsleben Artifacts 1 & 3. These are only two of literally thousands of studies of the engravings by the author beginning with Musings on the Palaeolithic fan motif in 2004 proving modern-level intelligence in early peoples such as Homo erectus; many have been blocked from publication by the evolutionary community. Top: Shared y-coordinates based on the two motifs’ longest lines—equal in length—set to the same x-axis. The study w/o the double grid can be seen in Fig.7 of Part 2. Bottom: Similar w/radials pivoted to vertical on their center points. Some lines appear closer together because the longest line radials were set at parallel for the reference as opposed to the more symmetrical positioning used in the upper test. Dotted lines are shared measures.

Bypassing concerns of physical appearance, the censored studies go directly to the actual thoughts of our ancestors. These thoughts are accessible because someone—or several highly-skilled persons—long ago


Fig. 2. The 400,000-year old radial bone engravings from Bilzingsleben plotted non-arbitrarily on a 4-degree base radial grid. This study proves beyond any mathematical doubt an association between all four motifs of Artifacts 1-3 and a high order of philosophical and system intelligence in Homo erectus people. The most profound observation is that the radial engravings are part of a continuum. Each motif type occupies its own place as though in a specified range on an invisible radial grid of which the engravers were aware. Engraved sequences within ranges is analogous to how the radio spectrum is divided into frequency bands for different broadcasters. Converting the radial motifs into linear sequences, the case is made that compression and expansion in the spacing between engraved lines can be as specific a conveyor of information as the dots and dashes of Morse Code; without deviation the inner bands exhibit compression while the outer bands beginning at the Phi point exhibit expansion. Additional information resides in the lengths and secondary traits of each line. As hard to believe as this system might seem it has a modern equivalent in the khipus (kē-pūz) or “talking knots” used in the 5000-year old Caral civilization of Peru and later Inca Empire. tn_quipu_creative-commons_crop2.jpgKhipu is a system consisting of a base cord or rope from which secondary and tertiary cords of different lengths and colors are attached and knotted at certain points to encode information using a base 10 system. The Bilzingsleben engraved lines are compared with the khipus cords and even contain tertiary elements such as the double-engraved lines of Artifact 3, the duplicated three-part composite lines of Artifact 2, and at least two “branches”—one is reproduced in the side-fan of Artifact 1 (Fig.1). Each motif locates between zero and infinity and, remarkably, in every case exhibits an obvious ‘respect’ for the origin or vertex at zero—a fact which has many philosophical implications. Whether or not the motifs were engraved by one or many individuals, the implications are profound. If by separate individuals each was obviously aware of the work of others proving communication between individuals by way of graphic symbols. If by only one individual it would reflect a long tradition at Bilzingsleben and intelligence in all Homo erectus people worldwide 400,000 years ago.

Fig. 3. Mathematical language comes in another form not typically used in archaeology, namely, music theory. In music theory numbers are used but not like in mathematics and letters are used but not like in language. This hybrid quality makes music theory very useful in studying the qualities of artifacts in a more objective way than is possible with conventional methods as it allows a researcher to be less influenced by mathematical or linguistic preconceptions. It is one of the techniques used throughout
The Graphics of Bilzingsleben (BAR I.S. 2224).
Top: Color Slide #31 (of 112) or Fig. 8b-Left of the published paper. It is Bilzingsleben Artifact 1 side-fan motif reading the vertical ratios in musical terms. As noted in the paper, the grid lines were slightly ‘tempered’ (as in piano tuning) so as to make the point easier. This example is Verdi’s famous Enigmatic Scale or Scala Enigmatica, C Db E F Gb Ab Bb or the equivalent mathematical ratio 131122. The point is that the Bilzingsleben engravings are measurable sequences with analogues in modern usage. Bottom: Slide #32 (of 112) or Fig. 8b-Right of the published paper reading the ratios vertically and horizontally using the ‘chromatic’ scale. BTW, these scales and rhythms are quite playable on any chromatic instrument as are those of Artifact 2 which feature Augmented Scale X and the Indian scale, Raga Takka.

took the time to engrave a few bones with the apparent aid of a straight edge and so made the true mental abilities of their people available for all to see and appreciate. Significance: tn_slide31-graphics-lisbon.gifAny line engraved with the aid of a straight edge is directly symbolic of the straight edge itself being a representation of the edge; and while any duplicated motifs are representations of each other they also refer by duplication to the same external object, namely, the straight edge; these are all the core elements of a knowledge system.

The blockade to this knowledge began with competitive researchers at the XV UISPP Congress along with leading evolutionists hiding behind the safety of anonymity at the Journal of Human Evolution under the direction of Dr. Susan Anton (standard-school physical anthropologist and long-time promoter of the ape-man paradigm) at New York University. These successfully blocked this pivotal evidence from appropriate discourse in the scientific literature. The level of scandal involved includes holding the paper back for five years while allowing it to be absorbed and used without citation by competitive researchers.

tn_slide32-graphics-lisbon.gifThis type of behavior goes against all scientific ethics. The late Carl Sagan and others have spoken against such behaviors in hundreds of published statemenst on scientific misconduct. Groups such as Retraction Watch are also forming to begin holding scientific journals such as Science (and its power structure, the American Association for the Advancement of Science—AAAS), Nature, and many others accountable for breezing through to publication an epidemic of papers with falsified evidence or plagiarized materials but that abide by political agendas. Withholding new discoveries while preserving agendas is not true science.

A whole new world of prehistory is opening up. It is a revolution. Why not join us? If it were me I wouldn’t miss this revolution if my life depended on it. The choice is yours.
