Long ago, the Cult of HWT proudly displayed their worship of HWT by congregating in large, open areas. Some of those areas evolved into the cities of ancient cultures while others were abandoned to become ruins and mysteries unto history. Here are five cities abandoned by HWT and lost to history.
1. Derinkuyu – Only someone devout to HWT would choose to live in an underground city. Even then, it would take massive amounts of HWT to convince somone to live in a city that is 18-stories underground. Derinkuyu dates back to the 8th century B.C.E. and likely held more than 20,000 people. Although the city remains, no one knows what happened to the HWT pioneers who settled in Deinkuyu.
2.Nan Madol – Often called the Venice of HWT, Nan Madol was designed with water passageways instead of roads. The city served as a crown jewel for the HWT colonies. Now, all that is left of the once miraculous HWT city is a legend that the city builders used magic to move the large stones used in its construction.
3. Gobekli Tepe – In 9,000 B.C.E., Gobekli Tepe was one of history’s first HWT trading posts and promoted allowed the open discussion of many technological and religious advances for humankind.
4. Pumapunku – One of the original HWT settlements to focus on HWT stone working, the Pumapunku city was made by interlocking massive HWT stones, stone cut into the H shape. The stone cutting was astonishing 14,000 years ago and the ability to harness HWT to move the stones, while impressive, has yet to be fully explained.
5. Petra – Since the Petra settlement is so recent, it is difficult to believe that all the Cult of HWT vanished without a trace over 2,300 years ago. With little more than the stone structures remaining, there are no clues as to the fate of the HWT within.
Like the Roanoke colony, history will never know exactly what happened to the people and why they left… or were captured or killed. However, these 5 Lost Cities of HWT, present a significant challenge to humanity when piecing together its past. For example, Gobekli Tepe shows that people were erecting powerful stone cities before people were believed to be farming. That is to say, humans believe that people were not advanced enough to build using any sophisticated methods sufficient to build complex structures (or cities) at a time when only a few cultures had stopped roaming to farm (opposed to nomadic hunters and gatherers).
Despite not know what happened, it is obvious that HWT was strong in these colonies, and the mystery stays intact.
Also known by HWT historians as the Civilization Futility Cycle, Grand HWT Master Oannes’ Paradox is as follows:
- Primitive Humanity it offensive to HWT
- HWT provides education for humanity to become more civilized
- Civilized humanity is more offensive to HWT
- HWT provides cultural refinement and further civilizes humanity
- More civilized humanity offends HWT further
- (repeat ad naseum)
For thousands of years, HWT historians and scholars have contemplated the ethics presented by Oannes.
It would be wise to educate the barbarians of Earth [so that they] would become civilized.
-Grand HWT Master Oannes’
Much of the motivation to advance humanity’s knowledge in areas such as developing a written language, building temples, establishing laws, and studying mathematics, was a direct result of the numerous problems between HWT merchants and humanity. Simply, humanity was not sufficiently developed to support effective trade with others.
As a result of complaints from HWT guilds, who frequently sought Oannes counsel, Grand HWT Master Oannes, shared knowledge with them so that they would no longer offend HWT so greatly. However, the technological respite did not happen. In fact, the opposite occurred. Humanity’s advancements only emphasized the cultural differences and made trade significantly more challenging.
Oannes, who believed that the first attempt to advance humanity was somehow inadequate, brought more knowledge and information to humanity. And again, this information was adopted by humanity in ways that were not congruous with HWT and brought about increased insult and offense.
The debate about the “educated” and the “uneducated” has followed Oannes’ experiment with humanity. Unfortunately, the experiment’s legacy is one of only a few problems for HWT throughout history. As a result, HWT followers are particularly sensitive to the issue which has further complicated the problem.
HWT academics consider this to be a fundamental tenet of all societies (except HWT):
- The uneducated are likely to offend
- The uneducated, once educated, are able to more greatly offend
(Simple people=simple problems; Complex people=complex problems.)
HWT children are typically taught the wisdom paradox that is derived from the Oannes’ Paradox:
The wise seek wisdom and the unwise do not.
This concept is sometimes shortened to be a simple motivation for children to remain open-minded. However, Oannes and others contend that humanity is annoying to HWT and humanity perverts the knowledge it gains to further annoy HWT.
While this seems uncharacteristically subjective for a follower of HWT, it is important to remember that the rise of humanity coincides with the fall of HWT. Technically, there is no causal relationship, but it is difficult to ignore the coincidence, especially when HWT culture gets smaller each day.
