Gobekli Tepe: Gateway to the Stars

Gobekli Tepe is the oldest complex of stone circles and sanctuaries anywhere in the world. At 11,500 years old it was built in southeast Turkey at the end of the last Ice Age apparently by simple hunter-gatherers. Yet some of its megalithic structures contain carved monoliths as much as 15 tonnes a piece, with a height of 5.5 metres. Who really built these monuments, and why?

I show that Gobekli Tepe was constructed to target the stars, and demonstrate conclusively that it was directed towards the Cygnus constellation and the Milky Way’s Dark Rift. Yet as an astral gateway it was not just used by the souls of the dead to reach the afterlife, or unborn souls to reach incarnation, but also by the souls of shamans journeying between this world and the next. Recorded by Morris at the Sacred Space group meeting in London on October 10, 2013.

Göbekli Tepe and the Worship of the Stars: A Question of Orientation


Göbekli Tepe's Enclosure C (Pic credit: Andrew Collins, 2013)

A Mandaean ceremony that took place on the banks of the Euphrates river in the late nineteenth century provides compelling evidence that the early Neolithic cult sanctuaries of Göbekli Tepe were orientated towards the north, and not towards the south, the direction of the dog-star Sirius


A Report by Andrew Collins


Italian archaeoastronomer Giulio Magli
proposes that key sanctuaries at Göbekli Tepe are aligned to the rising of Sirius, c. 9100-8250 BC (Magli, 2013). His theories have received support from New Scientist magazine, which published a feature on the subject under the headline "world's oldest temple built to worship the Dog Star".

Yet as pointed out by chartered engineer Rodney Hale and the author in a detailed response to Magli's proposal (Collins & Hale, 2013), there are severe problems in accepting Sirius's role at Göbekli Tepe, due to its feeble motion and poor visibility at the time. Indeed, for hundreds of years after its reappearance on the southern horizon in c. 9500 BC (having been invisible from the latitude of Göbekli Tepe for as much as 5,500 years), it would barely have lifted off the horizon, making it unlikely that in order to venerate this long lost star the Proto-Neolithic hunter-gatherers of southeast Anatolia (Asiatic Turkey) abandoned their cherished lifestyle to create the first monumental architecture in human history.

Beyond these problems is the fact that there is overwhelming evidence that the peoples of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic age in southeast Anatolia oriented their buildings not towards the south, the direction of Sirius, but to the north, the direction of the celestial pole and the circumpolar stars (Collins, 2006, 2013, 2014; Collins & Hale, 2013). This realization brings the orientation of these buildings in line with the direction of prayer of religious sects that once thrived in the same region, and may well owe at least some of their beliefs and practices to the Neolithic age.

Göbekli Tepe and the
Rebirth of Sirius


Pic credit: Rodney Hale/Andrew Collins.

An examination of the night sky during the epoch of Göbekli Tepe's construction shows that the star Sirius was completely unsuitable for star alignments at this time.


Andrew Collins and Rodney Hale

Göbekli Tepe is the site of a series of stone enclosures built during the tenth and ninth millennia BC on an isolated mountaintop in southeast Anatolia (Turkish Asia Minor). Speculation has mounted regarding their orientation towards stellar objects, with Orion and Cygnus having already been proposed. Sirius is the latest star to be put forward as the primary focus of key monuments at the site. Yet as the authors Andrew Collins and Rodney Hale realise such a conclusion is thwart with problems, not only in connection with the faint appearance and feeble movement of the star during the epoch in question, c. 9500-9000 BC, but also with respect to the orientation and layout of the enclosures themselves. Instead of being orientated to the south, the direction of Sirius, the enclosures are more likely directed to the north, the direction of liminal activities since the Upper Paleolithic age. In this respect, a more suitable stellar candidate for the orientation of the enclosures is Deneb, the brightest star in Cygnus, which marks the opening of the Milky Way's Dark Rift, seen universally in the past as an entrance to the sky-world.

Report by Andrew Collins


On a hilly ridge called Göbekli Tepe in the Taurus Mountains of southeast Turkey, near the ancient city of Sanliurfa, archaeologists have uncovered the oldest stone temple complex in the world. Constructed most probably during the second half of the tenth millennium BC, as much as 7,000 years before Stonehenge and the Great Pyramid, the site consists of a series of rings of enormous T-shaped pillars, many bearing carved reliefs of Ice Age animals.

But what exactly were these stone enclosures used for, and are they aligned to the stars? Already there have been claims they are aligned to Taurus, the Pleiades and Orion. Now ancient mysteries writer Andrew Collins brings you all the answers you need. Having first become interested in Göbekli Tepe back in 2000, he visited there in 2004, and returned there in 2012 in order to fully establish the facts before preparing this crucial new article.

ANDREW TALKS LIGHTQUEST
To Claire Whiles of The Light and Energy Channel



Watch Claire Whiles of the Light and Energy Channel talk to Andrew Collins about everything LightQuest. The interview was filmed in a quiet corner of the garden at The Barge Inn, Honeystreet, in Wiltshire, where Andrew will be talking about his book on August 26th. See the events section. It makes for amusing viewing, and very shortly it will be aired on Edge Media TV (Sky Channel 200), so watch out for that too.

 

JULY 2012

 


BEYOND LIGHTQUEST

In addition to doing some serious promotion of LightQuest, including UK distribution and sales, Andrew is writing new book "Finding Eden: Göbekli Tepe and the Genesis of Civilization". This will include a two-week trek out to eastern Turkey to better explore Göbekli Tepe (where I was in 2004 - see the opening chapters of THE CYGNUS MYSTERY). He is also exploring key sites further east in the vicinity of Lake Van, which as early as FROM THE ASHES OF ANGELS (1996) was identified as the most likely site of the terrestrial Paradise of biblical tradition.

Andrew will afterwards turn his attention once again to Giza's cave world, which should be back in the news come spring 2013. Another book on the subject is planned to coincide with this renewed interest in the subject.



ORION AND CYGNUS RECONCILED?


An article recommended by Andrew is Gregory L. Little's recent review of the suspected cosmology of the North American mound building cultures, as seen through the star lore and funerary beliefs of various existing tribes. He points out that academic papers on the subject point clearly to two constellations being seen as working together - these being Orion and Cygnus.

Orion was seen as a giant hand that grabbed the soul of the deceased as it made a leap of faith on to the Milky Way at a specific time of the year. The soul was afterwards journey along the Milky Way until it reached a cosmic gateway marked by the beginning of the Great Rift or Dark Rift, where the starry stream is seen to break in two due to stellar debris. The spot is marked in astronomical terms by the stars of Cygnus. Here the soul was judged by a raptor bird (either an eagle or turkey vulture most likely). It is then either cast into obvlivion or allowed to enter the sky-world. Whilst Orion is portrayed in mound building art as a down-turned hand, Cygnus's brightest star Deneb is shown often as an eye within the rays of a star, or as a bird.

As Greg rightly points out, these Native American beliefs might well help reconcile the seemingly conflicting relationship between the Giza Pyramids and the stars of Orion and Cygnus. Perhaps both constellations played an important role in the ancient stellar religion of the early dynastic Egyptians, just as they did in other parts of the world.

These articles are a taster of a new book being written by Greg as a follow up to his compelling book People of the Web. It will attempt to demonstrate that Orion and Cygnus were seen as the destination of the soul in native American, MesoAmerican and South American cosmological beliefs. He will ask also why these ancient cultures, wise and sophisticated in every respect, came to hold such beliefs. Was it all just in their imaginations, or was there truly some special significance to these selected regions of the night sky concerning the soul's journey to the afterlife?



JANUARY 2012


* MESSAGE FROM ANDREW COLLINS*


Hi, and welcome to 2012.
Yes, it really is upon us, finally,
After a decade of speculation and fear mongering,
So treat it kindly, and don't believe the hype!
And will all be here next year to tell the tale.


For the forseeable future I, Andrew Collins, shall be in intense writing mode completing a new book called FINDING EDEN on Göbekli Tepe, one of archaeology's greatest enigma - a 12,000 year old ceremonial complex, the first monumentsal architecture anywhere in the world, 7,000 years older than the Pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge in England. I shall be looking at its precise purpose, who built it and its relationship to the Watchers of the book of Enoch and the biblical Garden of Eden.

For this reason, this site will remain quiet during this period.

All news will be channelled through my Facebook page, the link for which is at the top of this page.

Yet for those new to the site, there is still plenty on offer, books, DVDs and a plethora of articles on a multitude of subjects from Atlantis to Angels, and from Tutankhamun to the Caves of Giza's Lost Underworld. Oh, and a few articles on Cygnus, cosmic rays and the origins of human consciousness as well

And coming soon my new book ...

GIZA'S COSMIC BLUEPRINT

PART
TWO - IN SEARCH OF THE MOUND OF CREATION


Andrew Collins, author The Cygnus Mystery and Beneath the Pyramids, Presents New Evidence that the Cygnus Star System is Behind a Grand Design or Cosmic Blueprint at Giza

In Part One of this article we showed that new calculations reveal how the three "wing" stars of the Cygnus constellation correlate near perfectly with the positions of the Pyramids of Giza, both in a vertical and horizontal plane. This raises the question of whether the Giza pyramid field was created to conform to a grand design, a structral blueprint, involving the stars of Cygnus in their capacity as representations of the celestial womb of ancient Egypt's sky-goddess Nuit. Here the soul of the deceased, as the sun-god, was seen to achieve rebirth.

In Part Two the author, with the help of chartered engineer Rodney Hale, focuses in on the core site behind the Cygnus alignments - a potential kom, or occupational mound just under 3 km southeast of the Giza pyramid field which might link to the concept of a primeval mound of First Creation (zep tepi).

GIZA'S COSMIC BLUEPRINT

PART ONE - IS CYGNUS THE KEY TO UNLOCKING
THE PYRAMIDS'GRAND UNIFIED PLAN?

 


Andrew Collins, author The Cygnus Mystery and Beneath the Pyramids, Presents Fresh Evidence that the Cygnus Star System is Behind a Grand Design or Cosmic Blueprint at Giza

New calculations show that the three "wing" stars of the Cygnus constellation correlate near perfectly with the positions of the Pyramids of Giza. Adding to the mystery is the discovery that the same three stars were seen to set down into their corresponding pyramids at the time of their construction, c. 2600-2500 BC. These findings, established by technical engineer Rodney Hale, make it almost certain that the Giza pyramid field was created to conform to a grand design, a structural blueprint, involving the stars of Cygnus in their capacity as representations of the celestial womb of ancient Egypt's sky-goddess Nuit, for it was here that the deceased pharaoh, in his role as her son Osiris, god of the underworld, achieved rebirth and became at one with the stars.

BENEATH THE PYRAMIDS NOW AVAILABLE IN KINDLE


Andrew's most recent book BENEATH THE PYRAMIDS is now available in e-format for the Kindle. It is the first of his books to be available in electronic format. For those with a Kindle, you now read why Dr Zahi Hawass calls the Giza cave system "Collins Caves", and work out why he might have wanted to seal them off from the threat of looters. Plus read the entire history for Giza's lost Hall of Records


GIZA CAVES FILLED IN TO PROTECT THEM FROM LOOTERS


Big news announcement!!! We can exclusively reveal that Dr Zahi Hawass has blocked the entrance into Giza's cave system inside the Tomb of the Birds (NC2), AND filled in the tube reached at the farthest point explored within the complex (see picture). This comes after fears that the site was about to be looted. However, Dr Hawass promises that the caves are to receive a full investigation in the near future (if that it is, he remains as Minister of Antiquities, a job he could lose in the coming elections).


Göbekli TEPE IN NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE

The 12,000-year-old stone temple complex of Göbekli Tepe was featured recently in National Geographic magazine. Accompanied the article, which details the excavations and possible origins of this extraordinary site, are a series of breathtaking photos, which are causing quite a stir. One of them shows a rectilinear stone pillar fashioned into an abstract anthropomorphic, headless figure wearing a complex belt and animal pelt as a loin cloth. Remember this stone was carved as much as 7,500 years BEFORE the construction of the Great Pyramid or the erection of Stonehenge in England. No question, we are dealing with the handiwork of a highly sophisticated culture that must have existed at the end of the last Ice Age. This complex was not done by simple hunter gatherers, who wanted to put together a clan meeting point, as has been suggested by scholars. Follow the debate on Andrew's facebook page regarding the identity of the animals featured on the various stones at Göbekli Tepe.


HIEROGLYPHIC GRAFFITI FOUND
INSIDE THE GREAT PYRAMID

Hieroglyphic graffiti has been found behind the secret door in the southern shaft of the Queen's Chamber, inside the Great Pyramid, by a team from the University of Leeds. Robert Bauval talked about it in his lecture in Warsaw over the weekend. Apparently, it could mean something like "emerging into the light", although an exact translation has yet to be published. To read the full story go to the New Scientist website, which the story was broken in the last week of May.




MARCH 2011


Hi, plenty to report from the past month. Andrew has written extensively on the Bosnian pyramids, caught a stunning EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) at a Native American mound site in Texas, debunked a ghost light elsewhere in the same state, examined South Africa's Adam's Calendar - thought by some researchers to be the oldest stone circle in the world - and photographed just a few of South Africa's ancient stone ruins from the hot seat of a helicopter that saw action in the Vietnam War.

See below for details of all stories, and how to read them.


ADAM'S CALENDAR:
South Africa's Enigmatic
Stone Ruins Explored




Adam's Calendar, near Mpumalanga in South Africa

It is one of the hottest subjects in the ancient mysteries subject today. What is Adam's Calendar? Is it really the oldest stone circle in the world? Was it really made by the Annunaki, the alien gods of the Sumerians, as a home base in their quest for earthly gold some 200,000 years ago? Or is it just 75,000 years old, made as a stone calendar aligned to the sun, moon and stars?

Andrew Collins - in South Africa recently for the first Megalithomania conference in that country - joined Adam's Calendar experts Michael Tellinger and Johan Heine, as they attempt to convince him of the site's extreme antiquity. Andrew also explores just a few of the hundreds of thousands of ancient stone ruins dismissed by archaeologists as cattle kraals, pens for cattle, even though they might well have much deeper meanings behind their construction.

Stunning EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena)
Caught at Ancient American Mound Site in Texas

Greg and Lora Little by the burial mound Caddoan Mounds State Historical Park
near Alto in East Texas where Andrew Collins captured the EVP on March 6th, 2011.


This is the compelling story of how Andrew caught a stunning EVP at a native American mounds site in East Texas in March 2011 in response to a question
posed, and how it became one of a series of strange synchronicities and discoveries associated with the Caddo-speaking mound builders who once occupied this region. More significantly, the EVP is in the Caddoan language, spoken by those who occupied the site and created the mounds in the first place.

On Sunday, March 6th, Andrew accompanied Greg and Lora Little to the Caddoan Mounds State Historical Park near Alto in East Texas, constructed by the Caddo-speaking Hasinai mound builders sometime between 800 and 1300 AD. Andrew tells the whole incredible story of how he obtained remarkable evidence of electronic voice phenomena as the three of them stood before a burial mound where the remains of no less than ninety individuals were found.

Saratoga, East Texas, where the Big Thicket ghost light is seen.

Andrew reports on his visit with Greg and Lora Little to the site of the Big Thicket ghost light, where they witness the phenomena for themselves, but find a plausible explanation for its manifestation

The same day that Andrew captured the EVP at the Caddo Mounds State Historical Park - Sunday, March 6th, 2011 - he visited the site of the Big Thicket ghost light in Hardin County, East Texas. Strange lights have been witnessed on numerous occasions across the last century along an eight-mile stretch of road that runs between Farm Road 1293 and the US 787 highway near the town of Saratoga.

The Case of the Bosnian Pyramids Examined

A Report by Andrew Collins from Houston, Texas

Visocica Hill a.k.a. the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun

In early March Andrew attended the Unearthing Ancient Civilizations conference in Houston, Texas, with Chris Dunn, an expert on ancient Egyptian stone technologies, and Semir "Sam" Osmanagich, the discoverer in 2005 of the so-called Bosnian Pyramids. These are a series of pyramidal hills that are being explored and promoted as artificial structures with given names such as the Pyramid of the Sun, Pyramid of the Moon, Pyramid of the Dragon and Pyramid of Love. Andrew sat in on Osmanagich's stunning visual presentation, which received a standing ovation from the packed audience. Andrew explores what is known about the Bosnian pyramids, and make some important observations about this great mystery of our times. Click here to read the full story.

Better the Devil You Know?
Don't Call for Hawass's Departure


A Report by Andrew Collins

In the wake of President Murbarak’s departure last week, Dr Zahi Hawass – recently appointed Egypt's Minister of Antiquities – is coming under considerable fire both professionally and personally, and there is mounting support for his resignation. Should he go or should he stay. Andrew Collins investigates, and concludes that it might be a case of better the devil we know. To read the story click here.
