Project (block 1) - Objectives of the Project*

In order to make easier the interpretation and development of the visual art, rock art, ideograms and ornaments, and for the reading of the ancient manuscripts symbols, the author created a three-language computer graphic project called "Universal archetypes of rock arts, ideograms, ornamental arts and new ideas writer". The offered editor is a tool, which rehabilitates the "cleaned" memory; stimulates old human ideas, archetypes of the visual art, ideograms and ornaments.
The comparative analysis of numerous Armenian rock art symbols and the Egyptian, Hettitian and Indian hieroglyphs, which were discovered in regions and their comparison with the Armenian hieroglyphs will allow to come closer to the truth, to hold detailed and wide circle study with the goal of confirmation of the conclusions about the primary source of the ancient visual, symbolic, ornamental writing, who were the creators of the first human ideas, ideograms, ornaments and letters. How and why they were spread all over the world, and when, in which stage of civilization they were undergone significant changes, modifications and deformations? The Armenian, Hettitian and Indian languages belong to the Indo-European family.

Project (block 2) : Progress, Methodologies and tools used for the Project*

It is known, that with the appearance and the development of human language the man is becoming a unique “symbolic animal”, passing a way from a biological being to a thinking one. But the reason is that the language, as a virtual object is a developing, open, huge library of interactive symbols and elements. Taking in set that archetypes and symbols are summarized in one image of the cognitive space where live and create the users of that language.

The investigation of letters approximately in IV century B.C. made possible collecting and keeping of similar descriptions (as texts). While, long before it, people already knew how to collect and keep the descriptions as petrography, rock pictures, and ornaments with the help of visual language.

Just the moment of the investigation to the visual archetypes is supposed to be the start of the new stage of the civilization. The graphical image, picture, symbol or sign, which is fixed on the stone, exists singly, never depends on its creator - «is alienated from him». All this systems possess by the feature of autonomy and independence. We call the language – “Actuality – 2'', in diversity of “Actuality – 1”, which is the world environment. The author supposes that between these two ''Actualities'' another ''Actuality'' exists. The last one is characterized with a unique ability of the man to create universal visual images and symbols, to operate with them in the frames of experience. It allows our forefathers to think and “talk” about absent events and objects at this moment.

The graphical language, the visual language of rock pictures and ornaments allowed a floating, harmonic and efficient (less actions) passing from ''Actuality – 1'' to ''Actuality – 2''. The construction of ''Actuality – 2'' relative to the objective, real or imaginable process, weighing of negative and positive features, hesitation in sincerity of thoughts, projection and development of the structure of logical constructions, choice of more acceptable decisions and their spreading – for all mentioned the man and the human language are obliged to the features of graphical language, as well as to simultaneity, invariance, reflectiveness, regularity, totality, etc.

Project (block 3) - Results *

The result of my project is to teaches with the computer graphic program called "Universal rock art, ideograms and ornaments writer" for virtual design arts and architectures infrastructures using visual communications with graphical forms of knowledge's, for study and interpretation the cultural heritage assets, prehistoric artifacts, rock pictures, symbols, stones inscriptions, ornaments and architectures elements. The results are to demonstration of the first human ideas, ideograms, which are inaccessible for the scientists, designers, architectures in different countries with different languages.

This instrument will make easier the solving of problems of establishment of the sources of the Indo-European and Semitic families of languages; to study of the history of visual art: rock art, ornaments, alphabets; to help in the research of the miracles of ancient culture and arts; to comments in revealing of universal motives in rock art, ornament art, systems of the letters, hieroglyphs, fashion, carpets images and geometric symbols using computer aided design.
