Synopsis :
The Russians were there first with the mostest .

Discussion :
1.Neanderthal civilizations ?
Look for red-hair mummies or genetic markers .
See Appendix AA

2. They developed astronomy to give fixed reference points to an unstable earth at the end of the last ice-age 
See Appendix BB .
Simple megalithic structures to give answers to important questions .
Basically , where to go .

3. The climate was changing . 
They could move north after the retreating ice and a known way of life .
They could move south to increasing heat , vegetation , herbivores and food .

4.Being human , albeit neanderthaloid , they split and did both .
Hence Stone Henge and Gobleki Tepe . 

Things are not what they seem

Arkaim: Russia’s Stonehenge and a Puzzle of the Ancient World

12 Comments January 31, 2014 Martin Clemens

Everyone’s heard of Stonehenge. You could probably venture into the Amazonian jungle and seek out an untouched tribe of hunter-gatherers, spend months gaining their trust and learning their language, fighting off dysentery while you’re at it, and when their chief finally makes you an honorary member of their society, against the emphatic advice of his shaman, you could ask them if they’ve heard of Stonehenge, and the answer would probably be: yes.
Some might say that’s overstating the matter a touch, but the point stands. The sarsen stones of Wiltshire are famous; they’ve made their way into popular culture the world over. Though, would it surprise you to know that Stonehenge isn’t the only megalithic stone circle in the world? Probably not, but most don’t realise that there are somewhere on the order of 5000 stone circles around the world. Some exist as collections of circles, like the Senegambian circles in Gambia, Senegal, which are counted as one circle in the global list, but which actually consists of more than 1000 individual monuments covering an area of 15,000 square miles.
Great Britain boasts a large number of these Neolithic sites, but they don’t have a monopoly on henges, as they’re called over there. One of their neighbours actually has quite a few as well.
Standing alongside such geological oddities as Russia’s Manpupuner stone pillars, or the Seven Sleeping Giants, some of the most interesting Neolithic monuments stand within the borders of the former Soviet Union.
Arkaim is one of those sites. Arkaim, or Аркаим in Russian, is considered by some to be the most important and enigmatic archaeological site in northern Europe. The site is wrapped in controversy and is sometimes referred to as Russia’s Stonehenge. It sits on the outskirts of the Chelyabinsk oblast in the southern Urals, just north of the Kazakhstan border. Though it’s not a stone circle in the way that Stonehenge is a stone circle.
An Artists rendering of the Original structure at Arkaim .

Arkaim is the remnants of an ancient settlement, which is basically a village that was fortified by two large stone circular walls. The settlement covers an area of some 220,000sq-ft and consists of two circles of dwellings separated by a street, with a central community square in the center. The site was discovered (rediscovered?) in 1987 by a team of Russian archaeologists, and a wave of excitement washed through the world of archaeology. The site and associated artefacts have been dated to the 17th century BCE and it’s generally agreed that it was built somewhere between 4000-5000 years ago, which puts it in the same age bracket as Stonehenge.
Arkaim has another name, one that’s not exactly kosher. It’s called Swastika City, or alternately Mandala City. It has this name for a couple reasons, firstly, if one uses their imagination, the layout of the dwellings around the central square almost looks like it’s in the shape of a swastika. As we all know the swastika is the misappropriated sign of the Nazis and of the so-called Aryan race, and which has been adopted by modern white-supremacy groups. The second reason is that the settlement is thought to have been of the Sintashta culture, which is an Indo-Iranian race (actually a language identity) of the ancient Eurasian Steppe, or in common terms, the Aryan race. So, as you can see, there are those who would like to assert that Arkaim is in fact the birthplace of the superior white race of humans, though few in mainstream science see any value in that line of reasoning.
The site holds more interesting secrets than just its association to a politically incorrect aspect of our culture however.
It has been of great interest to archaeoastronomers, and therein lies the reason for its association with Stonehenge. It’s long been known that Stonehenge has and was built with astronomical observation in mind. In fact it’s technically called an observatory. Stonehenge allowed for, and possibly may still allow for observations of 10 astronomical phenomena using 22 elements, whereas some archaeoastronomers claim that Arkaim allows for observations of 18 phenomena using 30 elements. This essentially means that certain events in the sky could be observed and tracked by using the site in particular ways and from different positions, and that Arkaim offered more observable events than Stonehenge.

It would seem that Arkaim is an even better astronomical observatory than its namesake. According to Russian archaeologist K.K. Bystrushkin Stonehenge offers an observational accuracy of 10-arc minutes to a degree, whereas Arkaim offers accuracy of 1-arc minute.[1] This precision is unheard of in the time frame allowed, and was only surpassed by that documented in the Almagest of ancient Greece some 2000 years later.
It may seem obvious to some, but the fact that these sites were apparently constructed, deliberately, to act as astronomical observatories and even calendars of a sort, before the same expertise was achieved in the great foundational empires of antiquity, like the Egyptians and the Greeks, is seemingly strong evidence for attributing greater development and sophistication to these pre-historic cultures. The more conspiratorial among us might even say that these sites offer clues to the existence of an unknown or lost civilization in our distant past.
Arkaim is but one example of the rich archaeological bounty hidden away in the Russian interior. Similar sites have been lost to industrial progress, such as Sarkel, a limestone and brick fortress built by the Khazar culture in 830AD, which was flooded by the Russian government for the construction of the Tsimlyansk resevior in 1952. Due to the secrecy and lack of academic cooperation during the cold war and possibly to language barriers, many such sites still exist, but have yet to be explored and analysed, and more still are yet to be discovered.

Seismic-to-sound transducer .
Seismic-to-Sound Transducer .
Andre Willers
21 Jul 2011

Synopsis :
Earthquake-swarms can be detected and their course predicted .
This was done at Gobekli Tepe . Many other sites should be around .
See "National Geographic" June 2011 p44 ("Birth of religion")

Discussion :
See "Click and Ley-lines" May 2011

The physics :
A massive monolithic T-shaped rock with one leg of the upper T buried in resonant semi-elastic rock wall (equivalent of landfill) .
A series of such T-shaped sound generators in an elliptical wall focuses the sound waves on the foci .
At the foci are precisely shaped T-monoliths larger than the sound generators .
These act as transformers to shift frequencies down to human-audible range .
Having two foci makes it directional on a two-dimensional surface .

What happens :
Seismic waves resonating at different frequencies in the "land-fill" mortared elliptical wall are converted into sound waves by the small T's , which are then focused onto the large T's at the foci . This also downshifts the frequency via resonances into human-audible range . Humans with suitably sensitive hearing and sense of harmony can then hear seismic activity and extrapolate harmonies , giving long-term warning .

Earth-quake swarms like in the Middle-East lend themselves to this .

How to 
test this ?
1.Build a full size physical copy .
2.Model it in analog . A circuit can be constructed from the normal elements as an analogue , but a memristor must be included . A real wall will act as a memristor and eventually become insensitive , needing a new installation .
The number of successive elliptical mortared rockwalls (important that rocks making up wall be loosely(ie elastically) bound to give resonances ) act like antennae and capacitors .
Small T's are microphones and large T's at foci are mike-speaker .

3. Model it digitally .
As above .

Earthquake prediction :
This is a real prediction system that has been used as such before .
This has inherently a human component for 
pattern recognition and extrapolation .
It can be used in conjunction with "Earthquake damage prediction" Jun 2011 to get rules .

I do not know if it will be of much use in 
single , once-off events , but it definitely works for swarms of earthquakes .

The fun bit : speculations :
See "Acropolis and Catastrophe Theory" Aug 2009
See "Why is the Parthenon not round" Jul 2009
See "Click and Ley-lines" May 2011

These systems were constructed more-or-less simultaneously to meet the dangers of seismic activity and tsunamis about 9 600 BC at the end of the Ice Age.

It does seem as if the knowledge of rock sound-generators were applied to seismic activity and not vice-versa .

A seismic sensor has to be a massive installation , whereas rock-sound can (and is) being done by 
single individuals .

This means technology transfer was from West to East .

Delicious !
The kick-start for Agriculture was the need to build and maintain massive Earthquake prediction centers like Gobekli Tepe .
The physics require massive installations , which cannot be developed piecemeal .
There are similar installation in Crete , Malta , Egypt , France , etc

Notice that if you rotate the T-pillar around it's own axis , you get a Minoan pillar .
The palace at Knossus and the Parthenon were designed to sing in earthquake swarms for those with the ears to hear .

Since these were prediction centers , rapid communication was not as important as in the west , where tsunami's were the main threat .

These underground waterways were the fundamental infrastructure of the Middle-East Originally designed as antennae for earthquake prediction systems , their rapid information transmission systems were used for thousands of years .
Click messages . Underground sonic semaphores . Water as well as a 
bonus .
Q'anat means Double !Click .
See "Ancient Babylonian Information Technology" Mar 2009

That is why the Mongols destroyed them .
The Mongol relative advantage was rapid communication .
Their population was too small to conquer . So they had to reduce populations and cut their communications .

They were well aware of the potential of the Q'anat system , and deliberately set out to destroy it . The Middle East never recovered . The communication system was the most important element of it .

But the earthquake prediction system can be restored at modest cost . The old knowledge is scattered , but not completely lost .

Look at the nexus points of old Q'anats for significant ruins and scripts especially in Akkadian .

Why Empires developed in the Middle East from the Semi-arid areas .
They had Q'anats , and the high-water table civilizations did not .
So , initially , they had fast internal communication .
See "Small World model"
Cf Medes and Persians .

Present USA incursion :
Typically , they have not learned from history . Local resistance is coordinated via the q'anat communication systems .

No need to blow them up (This will be genocide , a-la-Mongol). Just render them useless as communication channels by adding noise in sound and water waves .
Allowing the water to flow in the Middle-East is it's own 
message .

Why you will soon be needing this technology :
It is closely related to the end of the ice-age .
Tidal effects from the Moon causes vertical currents that eat away at ice and permafrost from the bottom up . This is because water is denser than ice . The barycenter exacerbates it by a factor of 15-20 (exactly like tides)

But the removal of ice-masses from the arctic and Antarctic unsquashes the earth globe on the rotational axis . Destabilizing faults on longitudinal lines .
See "Earthquakes and Volcanos III" May 2011 .

Earthquake magnitude distribution as per power law . Ie , some big ones , then many small swarms . The Big Ones are too bad , but the swarms of smaller ones can be predicted and compensated for .

This is what Gobekli Tepe did .

Die sooner or die later .
One of god's little jokes .
It does not matter who survives .
