Jonas SkendelisJonas: Connected pictograms of shields form a star inside. Is that an indication to relation of Phaistos disk to Cosmos? What kind of star it could be?

Claire Grace Watson, M.S.T.Claire: It is widely believed we get our 48 major constellations and names from Crete. Connecting all the shields on Side 1 of the disk produces the star just as connecting stars produces constellations. I think this hidden star is related to the Minoans' great accomplishment in astronomy - the identification and naming of the constellations.

Shield, Phaistos Disk PictographExcavate the stars by connecting the 15 Shield pictographs with the heptagon in the center (left). a pictographic instruction to "connect the dots," to reveal this pentagram/heptagram combination, two geometrical forms part of containment of geometrical arrangements. This might represent the known universe, the seven planets known at that time including the sun and the moon and excluding Earth; they are Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Venus. Or it could be star Sirius or stars connected by lines to reveal constellations. The stars are chaos also, but by connecting them with lines images appear that were there the whole time, just hidden like on the Phaistos Disk. It's a though the Minoans had the idea that the secret of the universe, held in place by the stars, can be revealed by use of geometry, and that the secret revealed is geometry itself. From this comes the ancient idea of "sacred geometry." (In our modern world, we try to reveal the "secret" of the universe by atom smashing, a violent, destructive approach to gaining knowledge.)

In this respect, the Phaistos Disk represents the night sky and the pictographs might be abbreviations for constellations. The spirals on the two sides of the disk would represent the revolution of the circling constellations in the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and the line segments would represent the division and measurement of the year.

Pentagram, Heptagram
Stars and Planets, Phaistos Disk

Maybe the star on the disk, a pentagram inside a heptagram, is the star Sirius inside the seven known planets, or perhaps it is the path of Venus. In ancient civililzations, when the people had a mythical view of the world, it was the similarities of things and ideas that fascinated their minds. The star on the disk probably represented many similar things: constellations, Sirius, path of Venus and even more.

In history, there is a so much information about Sirius, about its place of importance in the lives and concepts of Egyptians and apparently Minoans. Their Sothic Calendar was based upon its movement.

In the mysticism of the ancient Isis-Osiris religion, the pentagram inside the heptagram is supposed to represent Sirius surrounded by the seven known planets. The members of that ancient religion are generally believed to have been conducting their mysterious rituals inside the Great Pyramid, perhaps in the subterranean chamber and perhaps using that design as a religious symbol or magical talisman. Was the artist(s) who did this was one of them or could their group have done it?



Stars and Planets, Phaistos Disk
Stars and Planets, Phaistos DiskMilky Way

Another wagon wheel illusion and perhaps another pictograph-in-motion. The heptagram appears to be spinning counterclockwise, perhaps indicating the Milky Way. It might represent the circumnavigation of the stars or perhaps it conjectures about stars as being the composition of spiral galaxies.


Star on the Phaistos Disk

I think the Phaistos Disk (above, blue) was created by an ancient Minoan astronomer-priest and inventor, Daedalus, which could also have been the name of a group of Minoan and Egyptian visionaries, inventors and artists.

Phaistos Disk pictograph, Bull's FootPhaistos Disk pictograph, HornConstellation TaurusIf the 48 unique pictographs on the disk represent our 48 constellations, they would need to be "abbreviated" to fit the disk. That would make them difficult to identify. For example, the entire constellation Taurus might be represented by the bull's foot on the disk (left) or all of Capricorn could be represented by the horn (left) or Aries represented by the Ram pictograph (above).

Dog StarThe Minoans may have included the symbols for the constellations in much of their art and not just on the Phaistos Disk. Is this just an impossibly huge dog on a bead-seal or could it represent the "Great Dog constellation," Canis Major and the "dog star" Sirius? The circle above the great dog could read "star" and the figure 8 symbol to the left, two stars combined, could read "star group" or constellation, in this case Greater Dog, Canis Major, with the largest star in the sky, Sirius. The figure 8 might therefore be a pictograph for constellation and it is also a clue to the solution of the Phaistos Disk maze puzzle. If it is a sign for constellation, this would make the puzzle solution even more a-mazing!

Canis Major Canis MajorA pictograph used as a constellation abbreviation that made perfect sense to the Minoans and was immediately recognizable by them might make no sense to us at all. For example, why would the ancient Egyptians use a cow to symbolize the sky?? And while the number of constellations, 48, remains the same, the Minoans may have drawn the constellations differently or the constellations may have evolved into something quite different over time. (Perfect Canis Major showing the location of the major stars and Sirius, right, revealed when the five Phaistos Disk pictograph, Boat identical Boat signs on side 2 are connected with lines.)

Then I read the unique interpretation that the disk describes the history of [Thisea] and [Argonayton] from [Kler] [Goyatson] (Claire Grace Watson): It showed how the conjunction with lines of similar symbols on ton disk they gave the depiction of [gnostoteron] constellations. And then I remembered what connected the Disk of [Faistoy] with the [yperdoynabioys] Thraces that reported [Fokoyno]: In 2002 [bre] [thike] in Nebra of Saxon a cupreous disk of diameter 30 hundredth with golden astrological representations of age of 3.600 years. (Gia Kvashilava in Georgian, The Secret Alphabet of the Phaistos)



Star Sirius, Phaistos DiskStarlight

Staring into the Phaistos Disk for so long without knowing the star was there connected me to the ancient ideas and people of this Aegean world who convened in the pyramid. I flew into them via the universe's power of the falcon god Horus, a function of the subconscious mind, becoming a member of their Egyptian mystery school by being there.




Could the Sunflower pictograph in the center of the Phaistos Disk be the identification of the Sunflower Galaxy?

Phaistos Disk - Could this be the Star Sirius inside the seven planets?

Star Sirius, Phaistos Disk
I think the artist intended the star to be connected two different ways (left and above). One way connects all the pictographs and has one meaning, and the other way leaves one pictograph unconnected, and means something else. Thus, two new pictographs are excavated but I count them as one because they are so similar. Golden Fleece, Phaistos Disk Pictograph

Could this Phaistos Disk pictograph represent the Golden Fleece, centerpiece of the great Greek mythology Jason and the Argonauts? Connecting all 10 of them produces this pyramid with door, so if the Minoans knew of the myth then perhaps they originated it. And perhaps a part of it is long forgotten, the part about the Golden Fleece being hidden in the subterranean chamber beneath the Great Pyramid.

Seven planets, Sirius and the sun? Or is that Sirius and Sirius B? The Dogon tribe in Africa somehow knew of Sirius B, the invisible dwarf star companion of Sirius. Perhaps the Minoans also knew of it.

Minoan mythology - Great goddess Rhea surrounded her baby Zeus with Warriors beating their shields to drown the cries of the baby so his father Kronos (Time) wouldn't hear him and eat him, as he had all their other children.

Phaistos Disk pictographs might relate this ancient Minoan myth. This is the story of how the Curetes saved the god Zeus and became his chosen people. Rhea (top left with baby on her lap) entrusted the care of her son to five immortal Curetes, also called Dactyls, meaning fingers (the glove above). There are exactly five Dactyl pictographs on the Phaistos Disk.
Phaistos Disk pictograph, NurseThis image of Rhea bears the influence of the Isis-Osiris mythology in which Isis, after the death of Osiris, feeds the baby Dictys with her finger while with the other hand she beats her breast in mourning.

Sacred Cave Mt. Ida
Rhea hid the baby Zeus in a cave on Crete (above) and then invented the Dance of the Labyrinth (Kronou Teknophagia or Crane Dance) to amuse Zeus and to protect him. Zeus eventually overthrew his hungry father Kronos. Then, Rhea taught the Crane Dance to the Curetes (Cretans), who preserved the tradition and re-enacted the drama in the dance.
