New similarities in rock art symbols, such as those from the famed Chauvet Caves in France, from around the world 30,000 to 40,000 years ago is puzzling scientists. (New Scientist, February 20th, 2010) Basically, there are about 26 symbols which are found in almost all types of rock art, from everywhere on the planet. Given that these neolithic groups were physically isolated from each other, scientists are curious as to why the symbols are all the same. One scientist suggested a “cognitive change” that put art in peoples’ heads all at the same time, a rapid evolution in human artistic ability across all human groups.
I would suggest that the resonant energy of the symbols, carved in crystalline rock structures, was transmitted telepathically from one group to the other, spontaneously across large distances. This is consistent with Rupert Sheldrakes’ theories of morphogenic fields and other related research by Dr. William Tiller, Dean Radin, Dr. Masaru Emoto and others. So the spontaneous and simultaneous development of artistic abilities among various pre-modern humans may also have been accompanied by the appearance of resonant, telepathic abilities.
It’s not as far fetched as it may sound. Similar, uniquely-shaped crystals have been known to appear spontaneously at different locations. This would be something like the “hundredth monkey syndrome” seen in the spread of fads and fashions. Why wouldn’t it possible with shapes embedded in a crystalline substrate? At least it’s certainly one intriguing possibility.
