A clay disk that looks like a child's game has become a headache for archaeologists and historians. And for the throngs of tourists who visit Crete, it is fascinating for its mystery. This is a completely new interpretation of the meaning of the Phaistos Disc, which opens new horizons never before imagined by archaeologists and historians. The utilized interpretative methodology is new as well: It presents a new way of investigating artifacts that are mysterious due to their age; direct evidence isn’t possible and interpretation is difficult. The ancients’ access to ideas was much different than now. The difficulty of understanding lies in the code of communication, which is no longer understood and in the contents themselves, since neither of the two falls within our wealth of knowledge. The result with the classic historical-archaeological method can only be “un-understanding”. This book presents one possible solution. If we are willing to mix “Sacred and Profane”, “Rational and Intuitive”, and “Scientist and Artist”, we can reach the result of this book: The unveiling of a meaning that would otherwise remain mysterious to the mind of modern man.
