The “squatting man” is a symbol that can be seen in every ancient culture and it is often thought to be a distorted version of the human body. This symbol is an archetype, and each different culture had their own way of illustrating it. The interesting fact is that all the civilizations began using this symbol roughly around the same time, which resulted in speculations that all the ancient cultures communicated among each other, or that every civilization was inspired by the same event, which most likely happened in the sky.
The symbol of the squatting man can be seen in Australia, northern Europe, Africa, and even Malta. All the illustrations are incredibly similar to each other, and if a cosmic event was the reason for this, then, said event must have been of great importance for ancient civilizations since they all decided to save a visual memory of it for future generations.
A group of scientists have studied over 100 000 petroglyphs illustrating the squatting man. They were mapped by a GPS system which determined the direction they were facing. It became clear that they were facing a point in the sky above the southern hemisphere.
Anthony Peratt, one of the leading experts in plasma discharge research, noticed forms which he had seen before. After that, he conducted numerous field studies and came to the conclusion that the ancient civilizations had witnessed an incredibly powerful high energy plasma discharge, which could have been observed in the atmosphere even with naked eye.
Scientists also noticed that ancient civilizations suddenly stopped drawing colourful paintings and began creating surreal illustrations.
Peratt was not the only scientist to study the Squatting man, and all reached the conclusion that most of the petroglyphs were created in similar places – rocks, sheltered by a nearby mountain range. If ancient people really did observe a plasma discharge in the atmosphere, then it is entirely possible that a synchrotron radiation (emission) could have been released and could have possibly been deadly for anyone who was out in the open.
