The swan was seen as the most musical of birds associated with the god Apollo, god of music and poetry, with Orpheus, the first mortal poet, and also with the Muses, the nymphs that inspire divine inspiration in mortal kind. Find out how this bird became a key symbol in the expression of the cosmic dance of life through its association with the Soul of the World
(And for those with knowledge of the Green Stone story from 1979, the historical origins behind the usage of the word "Meonia," revealed for the first time)
the 2000s human fossil remains were unearthed in the Denisova Cave within the
Altai Mountains of southern Siberia. DNA testing showed that the bones - two molars
and a pinky bone - belonged to a previously unknown human population today known
as the Denisovans. They are now thought to have inhabited Eastern Eurasia from
around 400,000 years down to around 40,000 years ago. During their final years
the Denisovans achieved an advanced level of human behaviour, including the creation
of sophisticated symbolic or non-functional objects including an arm bracelet
in bottle-green chloritolite with a bored hole that can only have been made using
a high-speed drill; a bone needle with an eye for thread, suggesting the manufacture
of tailored clothing, as well as finely finished, pierced ostrich eggshell beads
no more than a centimetre in diameter. In addition to this, fragments of horse
bones found inside the Denisova Cave have suggested that Denisovans domesticated,
herded and maybe even rode horses long before it was thought humanly possible.
So who exactly were the Denisovans? What do we really know about them, and how
are they linked to Neanderthals and our own ancestors?
author explains how the stars of Cygnus coincided with the turning point of the
heavens at the moment the Denisovan legacy was handed to the first human societies
in southern Siberia some 45,000 years ago, catalyzing beliefs in swan ancestry
and an understanding of Cygnus as the source of cosmic creation. It also led to
powerful ideas involving the Milky Ways Dark Rift, viewed as the Path of
Souls and the sky-road shamans travel to reach the sky-world. He explores how
their sound technology and ancient cosmologies were carried into the West, flowering
first at Gobekli Tepe and later in Egypts Nile Valley. Collins shows how
the ancient belief in Cygnus as the source of creation can also be found in many
other cultures around the world, further confirming the role played by the Denisovan
legacy in the genesis of human civilization.

CYGNUS KEY: THE DENISOVAN LEGACY, GÖBEKLI TEPE
AND THE BIRTH OF EGYPT
Learn how the common thread to the cosmological notions that spread out with the Denisovan legacy was the belief that humanity's cosmic origins were to be looked for in the area of sky marked by the stars of Cygnus, the celestial swan. From these ideas came the original belief that the progenitor of so many tribes, clans and ancient societies was a swan ancestor, a swan maiden, a concept now known to date back to Palaeolithic times and to have arisen originally in what is today southern Siberia.

30 August 2017. This week various new papers have appeared
concerning Tabby's Star (KIC 8462852). Find out what's happening in connection
with the star, and where this leaves us regarding the cause of its short-termk
and long-term light dimming episodes.
A new study by science and history writer Andrew Collins and engineer Rodney Hale
KIC8462862, an F-type main sequence star in the constellation of Cygnus, experienced strange light dimming episodes during the initial Kepler mission between 2009 and 2013. These continue with further events in 2017. The authors use Kepler and post-Kepler data to create folding plotsto examine the relationship between the star's reported 0.88-day rotational period and suspected periodicities noted in connection with the light dimming episodes. This reveals anew possible periodicity of 9.68 days (11 stellar rotations). Confirmation of a mathematical relationship between suspected periodicities and the star's rotational period would begin to eliminate some of the proposed explanations for the star's strange fluctuations in light, while at the same time bringing to the fore other possible theories to account for both the short term and long-term dimming events.
16 pages. Many illustrations. Released August 23, 2017.

Andrew Collins and British chartered engineer Rodney Hale have worked together to determine the physical modelling of the occulting objects respionsible for the massive light dips reported during the Kepler mission in connection with KIC 8462862, an F-type main sequence star in the constellation of Cygnus. They determine their line of sight profile, and through this their nature and appearance. The Kepler data for KIC 8462852 is also re-examined to better understand the 0.88-day and 48.4-day periodicities noted in connection with the star. These reveal cyclic patterns suggesting that the prediction of future light dipping episodes might be possible, as well as recurring number sequences that contain mathematical patterns that highlight the number 11 and synchronize with the earth's own calendar cycle in a unique manner. Collins and Hale speculate that these mathematical patterns could be what French astronomer Luc Arnold in a paper published in 2005 called attention-grabbing signals deriving from an extraterrestrial intelligence.

Here the paper by Andrew Collins and Rodney Hale talked about on the latest video update on KIC 8462852 by science fiction writer John Michael Godier uploaded on June 6, 2017.
The paper and its findings feature in John Michael Godier's video update on the star for June 06, 2017. On the matter he says:
"I must admit I hope it is just coincidence because this would imply that an alien civilization over 1,300 light years away knows that Earth is habitable, has the right atmosphere in the mix for intelligent life to develop, have calculated our orbit, and are sending a visual message to us just in case we're here. I guess that's not all that different from the idea of an alien civilization beaming a radio signal towards us, one of the things that SETI searches for. And I really think it's just the star rotating and its all coincidence, but its interesting nonetheless, and a bit creepy. What a weird star."

No feature at Göbekli Tepe has aroused more interest than Enclosure D's Pillar 43, popularly known as the "Vulture Stone." Just recently it has become the focus of worldwide attention with claims in a peer-reviewed paper that its relief imagery is a detailed snapshot of the night sky on the day in 10,950 BCE when the earth was devastated by a comet impact. Although finding favour among science journalists, these ideas have received a cold reception from the archaeological team responsible for excavations at the site. So what is really being conveyed by the pillar's compelling imagery, created as much as 11,500 years ago? Does it really show the moment of a comet impact, or could there be a far more realistic solution to this baffling mystery?
mysteries writer Andrew Collins and chartered engineer Rodney Hale take a fresh
look at this subject, realising the key to understanding Pillar 43's astronomical
nature is the ball over the left wing of the principal vulture among the carved
relief. Almost certainly it represents the northern celestial pole, long seen
in shamanic tradition as the "hole in the sky" through which human souls
could access the Upper World. With this knowledge, it becomes clear that the pillar's
carved relief is a multi-layered signboard created to aid the soul's journey from
its physical environment to the land of the dead.
COLLINS NEWSLETTER - MAY 2017
By Andrew Collins
A new theory claims that Göbekli Tepe's Vulture Stone (Pillar 43) is a snapshot of the sky in 10,950 BC showing the date and time of a comet impact. It interprets the stone's prominent carving of a vulture as the constellation Sagittarius, something championed by Graham Hancock in Magicians of the Gods. As this article is written by academics and published in a scholarly journal its sensationalist and somewhat far-fetched claims have been picked up on by the international media, and even The New Scientist" magazine. Yet are they correct? Is it even right to interpret the imagery in this way? In this new article Andrew Collins puts into perspective what we know about the carved imagery of Göbekli Tepe's Pillar 43, showing that it more likely relates to early Neolithic beliefs and practices concerning the soul's journey from the earthly plane to the sky-world - a view held also by leading archaeologists working at the site.
