The Mini Verse
This is so exciting, I have no words for it. He came through! He called me earlier today, and we've been communicating on and off about everything. It's incredible, what we seem to have found.
Okay, so in short form we have this. If my thoughts can collect themselves. At least two cultures (possibly even a third) from two wholly separate continents appear to have references to the same story taking place within the same rough time period, in the same era. Looking at the facts, the stories couldn't have been written more than a few dozen years apart, which considering that the ancient Arant-ea people appear to have advanced more quickly than the people that I've been studying, is perfectly understandable. They probably took to writing these sorts of things down much earlier than the 'Dronii.
Aside from that basic fact, we have the similarities present in the stories. The story I've been working on involves a venturing party (or perhaps multiple, but for now I'm assuming just one--it doesn't matter too much at this point), who travels beyond the normal borders of their land, crossing through other cultures along the way, and eventually traveling across an 'ocean of worlds' to find some sort of relic or other significant but not well described object or structure after crossing to the other 'world'. The word used to describe whatever-it-was is roughly "CHE-RA-PAT-LI-KEM".
The story my friend had come across involves an ancient people of Arant-ea, which we know as the 'Belshimit'. This story involves some sort of cultural uprising, and the decision to travel to a location apparently not too far off, as there isn't much mention of an actual journey, which is normally quite important in these stories. They travel to the location where they come across the thing of their pursuit, described at best as some sort of 'growth' from a world preceding them, and most significantly as yet another word which is virtually nonexistent except in reference to this thing. The word for it being "CHAU-PALET-IK-AEM".
Those terms are far too similar to ignore! This may not only be a revelation as to our world's history, but to our linguistics as well. Either these two cultures share similar linguistic roots, or one or the other got them from the opposite, or something similar. The fact that they could be referring to the same thing! That in those days, they may have found a way to cross the 'ocean between worlds'! Any of this, it's all so.. Incredible, almost overwhelming. I'm so excited, I can't wait to see what sort of things we may unfold here! That review must go through, they can't ignore this.. This is too amazing to overlook!
