Connective Layer Life Network Hu Represented by Sun and Clouds (Wild Cattle)

Sun God Hu became Celtic Lugh while Ba'al became Celtic Cernunnos which is the Akkadian phrase ṢeR.NuNu meaning "Life-Power of Chaos."

Shining bull from Brittany France
Shining aurochs (male or female) from Brittany France (11,700 BCE). This early image from the late hunter/gatherer Mesolithic era combines the sun with cattle to represent the middle layer of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm. Clouds corresponded to a herd of wild cattle moving across the sky.

 Shining Auroch  (11,700 BCE)

(November 21, 2023)  Sunlight, sun heat, and rain were considered to be directly manifested forms of divine fertility fluids produced by the sun and clouds which was represented visually as a herd of cattle. The Druid Akkadian texts describe a network directing the flow of invisible divine fertility fluids to the sun and clouds and to the seeds of pants animals for triggering and sustaining life. This network is the middle layer of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm.

The correspondence of clouds with cattle has continued into the modern era as shown by this popular song.

Göbekli Tepe Pillar 43 Showing Life Network 9,600-8,800 BCE

(November 22, 2023) Göbekli Tepe is the homeland of the Akkadian speaking people who became the Neolithic farmers who eventually migrated into Europe. Pillar 43 has an extensive image showing the Ancient Pagan Paradigm as a background to a drought as indicated by the weak and dying sacred ibis.

At the top of the image is the sky shell composed of removable bricks (rope handles) so they can be removed to allow fertility fluids to pass through. The life network with its V-shaped channels is shown above and below the sky shell. This network is associated with the weak sacred ibis indicating that the motion powers are not pushing the fertility fluids through the network as they should.

Below the life network and holding the sun is an eagle-vulture. These were controlled by the goddess Ayu and they edited the shape of the network by cutting unwanted links.

Sacred Ibis As Shown On Pillar 43

(November 22, 2023) These birds are native to the Near East and Africa. Due to their white and black color and crescent moon shaped beak they became associated with the moon and its motion powers. The Egyptian god Thoth is patterned after this bird and also represents those moon powers. They nest in marshes but forage far afield. Consequently, they also became associated with water.

Çatalhöyük Building 80 Life Network Painting

Çatalhöyük Building 80 Life Network (7500 to 6400 BCE)

(November 21, 2023) This photo shows a painting of the life irrigation network with its V-shaped elements from Çatalhöyük's eastern mound (7500 to 6400 BCE) located in southern Turkey but west of Göbekli Tepe. This is either a local irrigation map or a representation of the life network. This is an irrigation network as evidenced by the splitting of the channels combined with empty space. Çatalhöyük was located on a hill in the middle of a marsh in southern Turkey. This is good evidence that the Ancient Pagan Paradigm was being followed at this time.

Neolithic Weaving Patterns

The weaving from the Neolithic period is more complex than that seen in the hunter/gatherer Mesolithic. This weaving style incorporates rope-like strands. The stick on the right is a digging stick made from  a branch of the strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo) which is a shrub that produces a dense, hard wood.

Neolithic Fish Trap From Netherlands 4300 BCE

Trap was made from the twigs of dogwood tied together with small twine. They were used to catch eel, perch, pike, and carp for cooking in clay pots.  This spot was a temporary camp where a family of the Swifterbant culture and their dogs stayed for a brief period each winter.

Network on a Stone at the Ness of Brodgar, Orkney Islands, Scotland 2900 BCE

(November 21, 2023) The Ness of Brodgar seems to be a large temple complex located between two large stone henges (Standing Stones of Stenness and The Ring of Brodgar). It has an exceptional website with 3D models of major finds. See everything at:

This stone was a ritual deposit along with other items below a reinforcing wall buttress. Other items were some ancestral bones from a human, a sea eagle (local eagle-vulture correspondence), and a carved stone ball.

Carved Stone Ball As Found

(November 21, 2023) This ball was found with the network stone. The Ness ball is heavy and made from camptonite, from one of Orkney’s igneous rock dykes. Because camptonite is very hard, it would have taken some time, and a great deal of patience, to carve. It is similar to the Towie Ball. Photo from:

2400 BCE The destroyed remains of Structure Ten  was the focus of a massive feast. This saw the remains of at least 400 cattle placed in the passageway surrounding the building. A single sherd of early Indo-European Bronze Age Beaker pottery and a Bronze Age arrowhead was found in the layers just above the bone deposit.

The Fort of Structure 10

(November 21, 2023) Structure 10 shown in red above was the last large structure to be build at this site and it was built more robustly than the others suggesting it was a fort to defend against the Indo-European invaders. The fort fell around 2500 BCE. The victors had a feast using most if not all of the local population's cattle and piled the carcasses into the fort. 

The network stone was found in the northwest corner.

The excavators put out a video on their findings in 1923 on YouTube. It is called "The Ness of Brodgar excavation - an introduction." Online at

This shows the connection between the life network and cattle. Now at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. (IAA: 1937-876). Online at:

Concept Linkages: Cattle Linked To Life Network (Megiddo, Israel 1350 BCE) and Cattle Linked To Druid Spirals (Sardinia 3000 BCE) 

(November 21, 2023) Cattle head with spirals is on a platform in a tomb on Sardinia. The tomb is called the Domus de Janas Sardinia and dates to between 3400-2700 BCE. Domas" means "roundhouse" in Indo-European.

The Druid spiral arrangement is unusual in that its does not exactly match the standard Ancient Pagan Paradigm. While it does have two classes of powers (columns) the right column, but not the left, has 4 layers. The small spirals would seem to represent the feminine powers. 

The left column is the life powers which is missing the feminine life manifestation power. In contrast the motion powers on the right have an extra motion level at the very top. Perhaps this indicates the Sardinians thought some motion powers existed above the heavenly bodies of the night sky. Other than that the motion powers are normal with a gendered source level then 2 lower non-gendered levels.

Separating Network Masculine from Feminine

(November 21, 2023) Cattle horns exist on both female and male cattle. Being crescent shaped and white they by themselves represent the crescent moon goddess Ayu.  While male Aurochs are black and larger then the brown female not being able to color identify cattle leads to confusion. Hence cattle used in spiritual contexts were often modified for gender identification. This included showing male genitals, using only one horn for males (unicorn bulls), using light ray stripes (brindling) for males, or making them more man-like.

Was this ritual platform for the God Hu, Goddess Ayu, or the connective life powers in general?

Bull found at Ritual Circle, Israel

Bull found at Ritual Circle, Israel 1100 BCE

This bronze bull was found near the western wall of the site. This bull differs from the bull from nearby Hazor  which had extensions on the hooves to attach to attach it to something. This bull has well defined male  genitalia and deep eye sockets which may once have held semi-precious stones. The figurine is 17.5 cm. long and 12.4 cm high. It was produced using the "lost wax" technique with the  opening mark for the smelted bronze visible at the top of the neck.

Golden Bull from a Maykop culture kurgan dating to around 3200 BCE. This culture was located on the south side of the Caucasus Mountains. They became rich from selling metals into Mesopotamia. It is now at Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. This interesting culture started out as Neolithic farmers suggesting they originally spoke Akkadian but that culture soon transitioned to the chiefdom culture (kurgans) of the Indo-Europeans just to the north. This mixing of cultures seems to have produced the Caucasus family of languages (Circassian, or Pontic, Georgian, Chechen)

Etruscan Orcus Tomb 2, Image 4, Embarrassed God Hu Surrounded by Gods Alu and Yahu 490 BCE

(November 15, 2023) This scene is defending the astrological magic crafters. It shows an embarrassed life network god Hu, representing a malfunctioning life network, standing between an old Alu on the left and a young Yahu on the right. Previously these deities were misidentified as Vanth, Agamemnon, and Tiresias. Each plant in this scene divides the layers of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm which are represented by their main life class deities. The left plant has 6 nymphs representing the 6 known planets (Selu/Selene's Eyes) of the sky shell between Hu and Alu. These planets are: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

One of two Sumerian Lyres (Olmsted personal photo). These bull figurine on a lyre seen were found at the Royal Cemetery of Ur, Iraq. They date to the Third Dynasty of Ur between 2050 and 2200 BCE. The beard on this bull head shows the beginning of lordification in which deities started to be seen only as humans instead of as powers. The beard is made from the rare lapis lazuli imported from Afghanistan.
The inlay on the right image shows a funeral parade with the divine powers of life and death represented by animals. The top panel has a hyena and a lion (chaos and order on earth) at the front of the parade bringing meat and drink for the deceased. Below that are some mythical creatures playing music. A dragon is playing the lyre. Below that is a singing scorpion man (paralysis power) who is trying to play a musical instrument but can't because of his claws. Beside him is a goat shaking rattles.

Sumerian Seal Canal Fight Shows Ayu (Inanna, Ishtar) and Hu 2100 BCE (Text SX4)

(Nov 22, 2023) The above cylinder seal dates to about 2100 BCE. It has all the Sumerian connective level life deities gathered together to fight an irrigation canal demon.  

  1. Rejoice over the canals
  2. The pests are ejected

Starting in the left-middle and standing over the canal is winged Inanna (Ayu, Ishtar) swinging a bag likely filled with pollen (alternately it could be a pine cone also filled with pollen). Bees with their pollen carrying ability also transported life powers and so corresponded to Ayu. She is carrying arrows on her back for use by Hu.

To her right and left is her masculine complements, the rain cloud god Hu spouting streams of water and sun god Hu holding a bow. Attacking the canal demon leaping from Hu is an eagle vulture. Below Hu is a young unicorn bull which is another representation of Hu. The identification of the other gods is uncertain at this time.

Sun Images

(November 21, 2023) Sun images with its associated lion correspondence is mainly found in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Persia, and later Anatolia. Bulls are found in Druid culture and in its sister culture centered on the Indus Valley. (Both were founded by Neolithic farmers coming out of Mesopotamia, one group went west while one went east).

First Coinage From Lydia Shows 2 Sun Lions 650 BCE

(June 9, 2023) The dating of these first stamped coins is one of the most frequently debated topics of ancient numismatics with dates ranging from 700 BC to 550 BC. Lydia ruled most of western Anatolia before they were conquered by the rising Persian empire in 547 BCE. 
The Lydian stater was composed of electrum, a naturally-occurring gold-silver alloy; though the coins are often reported to be struck from this naturally-occurring alloy, they were actually made from a specific and rather consistent mix of approximately 55% gold, 45% silver, and a small balance of copper. This indicates that silver and copper were added to natural electrum in order to achieve a more durable and balanced metal alloy. Although the extra copper slightly debased the coin's intrinsic value, it allowed it to exhibit a golden hue, unlike the pale white-gold color of pure electrum.

First Coinage From Lydia Shows Sun Lion And Unicorn Storm Bull 650 BCE

(June 9, 2023)  Because these coins were made from a mixture of metals they could not just be weighed to determine their value. Therefore the Lydian state put on an image and likely defined their valued by decree and accepted that value for taxes.
This coin shows the sun lion paired with its complement, the chaotic storm bull.

Empires Begin Their Attack on Surviving Mixed Druid Cultures

(November 21, 2023) The Roman and Persian empires and their later supporting dualist religions (Christianity, Zoroastrianism), saw the mixed Druid/Indo-European cultures as the last remaining bastion of freedom which could oppose them. These mixed cultures were also the source of constant raids because Indo-European culture was a raiding culture. This caused the Roman empire became more sun centric with it new god Sol Invictus.

Mithras Killing the Bull of Chaos

Mithras Killing the Druid Bull (150 CE)

(November 21, 2023) The Mithraeum near the Circus Maximus in Rome had a detailed white marble relief showing the bull of chaos getting killed. In this image Mithra in a wind swept cloak is slaying the bull. Mithra who was a Persian Zoroastrian divinity of contracts and oaths is shown wearing an Anatolian Phrygian cap having a star at its peak. This cap derives from the snake cap of Mesopotamia which identified deities. This religion was especially popular among the Roman legions.
Four more stars are visible to the right of the god's head. A lion cub and the serpent are licking the blood from the wound of the bull. A scorpion grasps the testicles. On each side of the bull is a torch-bearer: Cautes (left) with a torch pointed up and Cautopates (right) with his torch pointed down. The two Corinthian columns beside them are pointed in the same directions are their torches. These likely represent the seasons with Cautes representing summer and Cautopates representing winter. Mithra is looking towards the sun while the crescent moon goddess looks away.

Winged Hu (Shamash) as the winged sun disk presiding over the tree of life

(May 5, 2023) Assyrian relief showing winged Hu (Shamash) as the winged sun disk over the tree of life whose branches represent the life network. This relief is from the northwest palace hall of Assyrian King Assurbanipal II at Nimrud. It dates to 883 to 859 BCE. The whole theme is that the king brings life and fertility to the kingdom.

The 2 kings holding scepters of power are pointing at the winged sun Hu who represents the life powers. Behind the kings are personifications of the god Hu holding  pine cones containing pollen which they shaking over the king. The personified gods are also holding pollen bags. Pollen and bees are a representation of the feminine power (Ishtar, Ayu, Inanna) which act as the distributers and constrainers of fertility. Wings are always an indicator of a connective power deity. Relief in British Museum at:

Horned Storm God on Gundestrup Cauldron (150 to 1 BCE)

Transition From Bull To Horned God Shown On Gundestrup Cauldron (150 to 1 BCE)

(November 21, 2023) As the bull moved into the northern forests of Europe it changed from a bull into an elk. By the time this cauldron was made, lordification had occurred in this area so Hu was shown as a person with antlers. That the figure was a life god is further supported by it holding a snake (masculine symbol) and a life ring (torque, feminine symbol). This life ring is also seen on images of the life connective goddess Ayu/Ishtar from Mesopotamia. The horned god is seated to perhaps represent the connection between earth and sky.
The transition stage image is actually shown above the elk as a long necked bull.
Based on its silverwork and soldering, this cauldron was most likely made in the Roman Provence of Thrace which is the land on the European side of the Bosporus.

Horned Storm God with Wings and Water Buffalo Horns from Mohenjo-daro, India (2600 - 1900 BCE)

Horned Deity with Wings from Mohenjo-daro, India (2600 - 1900 BCE)

In an example of parallel development, lordification advanced much more rapidly in the ancient Indus Valley. Their horned god had horns but horns modeled on a different animal. It also had wings instead of life symbols because wings still represented the connective layer of life deities of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm. Significantly, both representations had the god seated on the ground, perhaps signaling the connection between earth and sky.

  1. Su lu Ḫu wa

Into English

  1. A lacking Su makes miserable Hu

The full moon god Su is the motion source god and his motion powers are needed to push the fertility fluids through the life network represented by the visible sun god Hu. If the fertility fluids are sluggish then life forms do not get manifested making all the life powers miserable.

Right Column - agreement on the problem

  1. The boundary is disrespecting the fertility-fluid-Revealer (Yahu)
  2. Dehydration splits-off Hu's nest (network)

Middle Column - magic motion powers are the cause

  1. The moon-eyed (magic crafters) are confusing the repulsion
  2. The chaos is because of magic

Left Column - life powers are the cause

  1. No omen is forcing-fate
  2. Atu's fields (network) are influencing the Revealer

The right column is blaming the life power's middle layer of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm (boundary) for a drought. The network is not allowing fertility fluids to flow through it. These fertility fluids are needed to trigger the life form manifestations by the Revealer (god Yahu). The drying-out (dehydration) of fertility fluids  causes the network (nest) represented by the sun god Hu to split-off from the Revealer.

The middle column blames the magic crafters for making the flow of the fertility fluids chaotic. These fluids are pushed through the channels by repulsion.

The last column absolves the motion powers from the astrological night sky. The drought is not due to fate but due to magic crafters.

Location of Ulstad, Norway. It is not too far from Oslo.

(June 25, 2023) This text on a thin lead tablet which would would have been displayed in a Druid temple. Text tablet from Ulstad, Lom, Oppland. It dates to about 1300 based on its letter styles. 

This text is blaming a drought on the lack of good integration between the life powers and magical motion powers. The first two lines blame the motion and life powers individually. The rest of the text goes to explain why integration is needed. (Letter assignments shown in images below.)

In English

  1. (Blaming magic) Arousals (emotion-magic) should not energize astrology magic for leading Yahu  (E'u) :   Energy for astrology-magic can make trouble for Ayu.  The pasture (starry night sky) can confuse the same.  Don't bake [2 words].
  2. (Blaming life-powers) The weak-willed should not be energizing the network-birds.  Baking is energized by them.  Su can life-manifest nothing. Blockages are similar. Energize the motion-powers. Thu's motion-powers will do the same for life-channels. Energize Su.
  3. (Blaming lack of integration) Astrology-magic's involvement is making motion-powers the same. Those motion-powers cannot open those life-manifestation-powers :  Are not the life-threads being expelled.  Energized the pasture. Energize the astrological-powers. Irrigate those life-manifestation-powers.
  4. Confusion is from making baking-powers (life powers) the same (as magic powers).  The boundary (sky-shell) confuses the life-manifesting.  The eye-of-fate (Selu's eye, glowing full moon) is involving Su.  Selu (Selene) is causing chaos with the foundations.  Nothing is covering-up the motion-power's involvement with [2 words]
  5. Those high-life-powers are fate-cursed. The lack of the sky-shell is from Hu (sky shell sun god) neglecting YaHu (Y').  Astrology-magic of the divine-realm can redirect the eye-of-fate (Selu's eye, glowing full moon).  Break-through the openings by nourishing Hu.  Energize the arousal of Selu's eye.  Astrological powers [2 words].
  6. The falseness of Hu can involve the Observer (Su). Astrology-magic cannot manifest {humans}.  Life-threads cannot be redirected by energy. Energy can redirect those Hu-powers. Pain divides the filtrate.  [sentence]
  7. Eagle-vultures are rebelling against life-manifestor (Yahu).  The same are gifting nothing. Hu is lacking the same life-threads. Those are involving life-manifestations.  Is not Hu influenced by energy.  The pasture (starry night sky)  can be energized by astrology-magic.  Don't emanate [2 or 3 words]   life-manifestations are not the same
  8. Nourishments for astrological-powers are lacking.  Nothing is for Selu's Eye and nothing is for similar neglected-ones.  Fate-curse's winds belch-out the darkness.  The life-network's Hu manifests death.
  9. This howling is from lacking life-manifestations. Are not those from Hu. Death is raking-in those Hu-powers. The same is angering Hu.
