  • I feel a deep connection with the spirits that guide our lives. They are present in everything - the wind, the earth, the animals. I can feel their energy pulsating in the stones of Göbekli Tepe, where we gather to honor them. With each ritual, I feel a profound sense of belonging and purpose. I am part of something much larger than myself, something sacred and powerful. My dreams are filled with symbols and messages from the spirits. I share these dreams with my tribe, and together we interpret their meanings. I can feel the energy shift as we enter a new phase of understanding and connection with the spirits.
  • My body is attuned to the rhythms of nature. I rise with the sun, work the land, hunt and gather food. I'm skilled at using the tools we've crafted from stone and bone. I am learning to mark symbols onto these tools, to communicate messages to others in my tribe. These symbols are more than just marks; they carry the energy and wisdom of the spirits. I am aware of the changes in my body as I age, and I understand that one day I will join the spirits. This is the cycle of life, and I accept it with reverence.
  • We share a common language of symbols and rituals. These symbols are not just marks on a surface, but a way of expressing our shared understanding of the world. Our rituals bind us together, creating a sense of community and shared purpose. We honor the spirits together, and through this shared practice, we strengthen our bonds with each other. Our stories, passed down from generation to generation, shape our understanding of the world and our place in it. These stories are not just tales, but sacred truths that guide our actions and decisions.
  • Our society is organized around the rhythms of nature and the guidance of the spirits. We have roles and responsibilities that contribute to the survival and well-being of the tribe. We work together to hunt, gather food, and care for the young and the elderly. We gather at Göbekli Teapot to perform rituals and honor the spirits. Our leaders are chosen for their wisdom and their ability to interpret the messages of the spirits. Our system of symbols and rituals helps us to coordinate our actions and maintain harmony within the tribe.
