Was Powerful Universal Religion A Source Of All Ancient Cultures? Hard Evidence Found!


Ancient arts and cultures seem to be interconnected as the same patterns, symbols, and motifs appear across the globe. There are countless indicators present among many ancient cultures that suggest ancient civilizations of Earth were intricately connected. Interestingly, it does not require to be a professional to notice these details.

Richard Cassaro, a Madrid-based author suggested the exactly same in his book “The Missing Link: Powerful Evidence of an Advanced ‘Golden Age’ Culture in Prehistoric Antiquity.” He offered over 500 fascinating images as evidence of a fundamental role that the mysterious symbol would have had in cultures such as ancient Egyptian, Chinese, Sumerian, Greek, Inca, or Persian, among many others.

Cassaro argues persuasively that the “Old World symbol” known as “Master of Animals” is the very same symbol that scholars of New World cultures call the Staff God. He explains that this symbol is the central icon of an ancient wisdom tradition shared by the pyramid cultures across the world.

Encoded in the image above, Cassaro calls it the “GodSelf Icon,” which is a complete metaphysical doctrine that encodes a complex set of instructions for inner awakening. The icon depicts a human or human-like figure facing forward, holding twin objects symmetrically in each hand. These objects are usually staffs or animals, sometimes serpents.

Origins of GodSelf Icon

The origins of the ‘GodSelf’ icon can be traced back thousands of years to what Greek mythology refers to as the “Golden Age.” It is the initial stage of the ages, where mankind lived in an ideal state or utopia, when mankind was pure and immortal.

There are some Victorian Scholars who associated this prehistoric era with Plato’s Atlantis and with the idea that the rise and fall of great ancient civilizations are linked to natural cycles like the platonic year of 25,766 years.

From the Egyptians to the Assyrians, the pre-Incas to the Europeans, the icon is ubiquitous. Is it the lost symbol of a forgotten Golden Age religion that flourished globally in the remote past? How can it not be?

Ancient “GodSelf Icon” Discovery Connects the World´s First Cultures

With more than 500 stunning illustrations of the GodSelf Icon, Cassaro demonstrates how this wisdom has been encoded on Gothic Cathedrals by medieval Freemasons and preserved in hermetic and alchemical symbols like the Rebis. By contrasting ancient GodSelf Icons with these modern GodSelf Icon equivalents, Cassaro decodes the rich symbolism surrounding these images, showing step by step how this primeval religion is based on the concept of duality and the transcendence of duality. Cassaro makes a compelling case that these were the central concepts of every ancient and indigenous religion on the planet.

In his 2011 book “Written in Stone,” Cassaro showed how the ancient pyramid cultures shared not only the GodSelf Icon but also a series of three-door temples that he called “Triptych Temples.”

He stated: “The center door is the “source”—the “God within” or “soul within” us, which is who we really are. The twin doors are the opposing bodily forces of duality that surround the soul on either side and that the soul must confront and master life.

Cassaro explained how these Triptych Temples are artifacts of a “Universal Religion” that flourished globally in the remote past. He claimed that this Universal Religion may be evidence of the prehistoric Golden Age.

According to Cassaro, “In Egypt, the ankh cross of life was often depicted as a GodSelf Icon because it represented the eternal part of us, the spiritual center within us that we find when we balance our opposing twin sides.” The god Osiris, who was the role model for Egypt’s masses, was often depicted as a GodSelf Icon. For the Egyptians, this hieroglyphic symbol, called “Heh,” had a single profound meaning.

One of Egypt’s earliest GodSelf Icons is the powerful god “Bes,” depicted here atop the high columns of a famous Egyptian temple in Dendera. Incredibly, this depiction of Bes is nearly identical to a GodSelf Icon carved on the Gate of the Sun in Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, halfway around the world.

The creator god Viracocha of the Andes strikes the same GodSelf Icon pose as Bes.

For the Inca and pre-Inca stonemasons who worked at Tiahuanaco and indeed across the ancient Andes, the GodSelf Icon was the main religious symbol. These cultures include the Chachapoyas, Chancay, Chavin, Chimu, Inca, Moche, Nazca, Paracas, Sican-Lambayeque, Tiahuanaco and Wari.

Based on these parallels, it almost seems as if the Egyptians and pre-Incas were sister civilizations, descendants of the same Golden Age Mother Culture and inheritors of the same Master Mason tradition. Both cultures left megalithic stonemasonry so advanced that they leave modern visitors in awe.

Just as the GodSelf Icon was a central image for the Egyptians and pre-Incas, similar icon can be found at the beginning in India, the birthplace of Hinduism and home of many advanced megalithic stone monuments. The Indus Valley civilization, the first known culture in India, produced brilliant examples of GodSelf Icons. Certain key aspects of Hinduism, such as non-duality and “finding the center between opposites,” clearly reflect the ideas associated with the GodSelf Icon.

Do these findings somehow support Sitchin’s Anunnaki hypothesis? Is it true that those who came from heaven started the intelligent life on Earth and enlightened pre-historic humans with their knowledge? Is it true there used to be a single source of all human knowledge?
