National Geographic - Gobekli Tepe - mental illness community-think became churches

Gobekli Tepe is basically a great big hill, a systematically buried series of large stone and carved pillar enclosures, in the south of what's now called Turkey. It dates from about 10,000 BC, that's thousands of years before our own stone circles like Stonehenge or Calanais or Brodgar.

Archaeologically categorised as a site of the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A Period (c. 9600–7300 BC) Göbeklitepe is a series of mainly circular and oval-shaped structures set on the top of a hill. Excavations began in 1995 by Prof. Klaus Schmidt with the help of the German Archeological Institute. There is archelological proof that these installations were not used for domestic use, but predominantly for ritual or religous purposes. Subsequently it became apparent that Gobeklitepe consists of not only one, but many of such stone age temples. [source GOBEKLI TEPE]

Gobekli Tepe is abandoned in successive reburyings of the original site upon which smaller and smaller versions of this enormous temple are then built - eventually the Temple comes down from the Mount to the towns and cities in the form of what became our Churches.

"To put ourselves above Nature..." watch out for this comment in the following Gobekli Tepe research video and realise how Mankind first started to rape and pillage 'his god's world and wealth' for his own gain, his own Profit, his own Patent or Ownership.

People put themselves above Nature, and that's the start of the rot where mental illness i.e. Ridiculous Godma or belief in some outside creative presence, is more important than Creativity, Passion and Kinship itself. By believing in this God (or Gods) we lower ourselves to the position of soon-to-be-extinct animals we've put ourselves above and hunted to brutal extinction.

FREE PLANET SUMMARY: maybe developing a big brain was the big flaw. It gave us the ability to create an out-of-fear or of-paranoid-worldview GOD (or GODs) that will eventually (figuratively and physically) hunt us down and devour all that is Natural about Man. We will be a totally artificial mindset and species until we self-murder, self-eradicate, self-destroy. It's been a feature of Mankind's evolution, this Warring for God or Armies of the Righteous. What a load of mindless fucking bullshit exists in Man's heads.

Mankind, thanks to his insane obsession with other-worldly-rulers, deities, uber-beings, will die of his own daft hand, in time. Today I lost 'all faith in mankind'. All will perish because of this big brain. All human development will have been a scar on the mind of history.

This is something I am really interested in--a getting to the roots of why there exists the insanity of self destruction we are all seeing going on in the world. I think that it is the stories/myths we need investigate, and one of the earliest recorded stories which comes to us in patriarchal history is the Babylonian battle between Marduk and Tiamat, the Serpent Goddess of Chaos, or in other words the Great Mother. This epic myth known as the Enuma Elish is the first example of a warrior heroic-egoist mindset at war with Nature, women, and basically DEPTH which includes ones own feelings and emotions, all of this that mindset turns into 'monsters' it must forever be in conflict with. Following are the familiar hero myths, like Gilgamesh, Perseus versus Medusa, etc etc, and in art the depictions of armoured men on horseback attacking and killing Dragons/Serpents. A great book that goes deep into this is titled From a Broken Web, by Catherine Keller
Also, people like John Weir Perry who have offered sanctuaries (DIABASIS, Soteria House, etc) for those deemed 'mentally ill' with 'schizophrenia etc have found that in extreme states, or madness, people often find themselves in mythical dimensions, and often these feature the mythical indoctrination we have all been well versed in, a duality between 'good' and 'evil' and so on. This shows you haw deep these stories can affect the psyche. And predatory control-freak mindsets know this very well and that is whey they suppressed more benign stories which helped us find connection, and replaced with toxic myth aimed at dividing and controlling us even from our own being! This is--as your article suggests--the ROOTS of dis-ease.
