Çatalhöyük Building 80 Life Network Painting
Painting of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm life network on a wall at Çatalhöyük with the net being in the rectangular pattern seen in the 4300 BCE European Fish Net.
Catalhoyuk (7100 to 5700 BCE) was an early agricultural settlement of about 8,000 people in south central Anatolia. It was the first stop of the Neolithic farmer settlers coming out of the Middle East. It was located in an ideal agricultural setting being next to a marsh allowing for many flat agricultural fields separated by a network of small streams providing a natural sort of irrigation and abundant fish and shell fish. Floods would have renewed the soil every year.
The organization of the town was ancestral continuing the trends evidenced at Gobekli Tepe. No semi-public spaces devoted to fertility rituals have yet been found like those at Gobekli Tepe. Spiritual practices seemed to have occurred only in the houses.
On the south side of every house was the hearth and food preparation area. The north side was the spiritual work space and possibly the sleeping area often having raised platforms below which artifacts of spiritual power were buried. These included ancestor bones, figurines, and auroch skulls.

(Jan 3, 2022) This section traces the main Neolithic farmer (Druid) civilization from the Middle East and into Europe. This culture was related to the Sumerian culture which in turn has strong connections to the civilization of the Indus Valley. Whether the Indus Valley script is based on the Sumerian language remains an open question. If the language is the same then it is still and independent script invention just like Druid Alphabetic Akkadian script is independent from Mesopotamian Cuneiform Akkadian/Sumerian script.
