A tower of silence (known also as a ‘dakhma’) is a type of structure used for funerary purposes by adherents of the Zoroastrian faith. This Zoroastrian practice for the disposal of the dead involves the exposure of the corpse to the sun and vultures.

Today these Anunnaki are often portrayed as the equivalent of the Old Testament creator God.

Centuries of Celestial Records - Sumerian cuneiform tablets from the 1700s BC list more than 7,000 celestial omens. At that time, astrology was focused on what was currently happening in the night sky, as the future movements of the planets was difficult to predict. However, by the 4th century BC they had a fairly reliable system for predicting future planetary movements too.

Paintings that mark the positions of the planets in the night sky have been discovered in Lascaux, France from around 15,000 BC.

Last summer I posted about how certain pinched types of plasma discharges resembled petroglyphs from around the world. I wrote: "The Squatter Man (Squatting Man) Petroglyphs" The first two images in the top left corner represent how a certain pinched type of high-energy plasma discharge would appear to a viewer; the other images show examples of petroglyphs from around the globe apparently showing the same phenomena.
