  12. Identity of HERA


In another series of papers I had described the identity of the hero of ancient Sumerian epic story, so-called "GILGAMESH", as Turkish BILGAMESH, personifying the human knowledge.  BILGAMESH is the name made up from Turkish word "BILGI meaning "knowledge" and "BILGEMISH" meaning "he who has attained knowledge".  The ancient Sumerian name "BILGAMESH" and Turkish word "BILGEMISH" tie these very ancient languages to each others as ancient Turanian language.  Actually Sumerian was a dialect of ancient Turkish. Regarding this new understanding of BILGAMESH (GILGAMESH), readers may visit urls:

The name "Bilgamesh", which is also equivalent in meaning to the Turkish saying "Agilgamesh", was usurped and altered to the form GILGAMESH", thus alienating its Turkish source and assigning it a so-called "Babylonian" identity.  

Here in this essay, I will bring to the attention of the reader another well known mythological personality who is an emulation of the much older Turkish-Sumerian BILGAMESH hero. This other famed mythological personification is the name HERACLES, (Greek "HRAKLES" or "HRAKLEOUS" [1]) and the Roman or Latin name  "HERCULES" plus the Etruscan name HERCLE.  First, let us look at some of the background mythological information regarding the identity of Heracles. 

G. S. Kirk writes the following:   [2]

"Heracles is not only the most important of the heroes, he is also the most difficult to reconstruct.  In some ways he was a source of mystery to the Greeks themselves, particularly because of his ambivalent status as both hero and god: he alone started as a hero and was raised up to be a god on Olympus. His myths are quite clear about that. Despite Hera's persistent hatred of him, in the end he was taken from his funeral pyre on Mount Oeta and made immortal.  What is more, he was given Hera's own daughter Hebe (whose name means Youth) as wife."

When the above citing states that "he was a source of mystery to the Greeks themselves", this tells us that the story did not originally belong to the Greeks to begin with. Just like the Babylonian Semites who took the Turko-Sumerian "BILGAMESH" and altered it into "GILGAMESH", the Greeks also took this story from the ancient Turkish speaking Turanians, that is, Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, and hence made it a Greek hero even though they were not clear about the nature of the personifications that HRAKLEOUS represented.

It should also be noted that even the name "HEBE", the daughter of Hera, is from Turkish "EBE" meaning "young girl". In Turkish the name "ebe" was given to "nurses" in hospitals. The name also means "midwife, obstetrician", also "mother" or "grandmother", and in the form of "ebe ari" means "queen bee",   [3]. The name EBE (HEBE) is also related to Turkish "ABLA" meaning "elder sister". 

G. S. Kirk writes the following about Heracles: [4]

"The problem of Heracles' divinity exercised the ancients' world as well as the modern, and the historian Herodotus went to great personal trouble to solve it.  Unfortunately he started from the idea that one of the twelve Egyptian gods could be identified with Heracles, who must therefore be much older than a generation or so before the Trojan War, which is where the Greek myths placed him. Herodotus made a special trip to Tyre in Phoenicia, where he had heard there was a famous temple of Heracles, to pursue the matter further. The cult there was claimed by its priests to be no less that 2,300 years old. A further visit to the island of Thasos in the north Aegean suggested that the Phoenician Heracles had been established on the very borders of the Greek world for some five generations before Heracles the Greek hero. Once again, Herodotus was misled, this time by the identification (common in his day, but without foundation) of Heracles with the Phoenician god MELQART, but the importance of the quest and the unique nature of Heracles' status are confirmed by the historian's determined and arduous pursuit of every clue."

Again all of this indicates that the concept of "Heracles" did not originally belong to the Greeks. They "adopted" it from the much earlier Turanian civilization and composed a new name for him. Even the god MELQART of the Phoenicians was much earlier than the so-called "Greek" Heracles. In actuality, Heracles is a parallel concept to the Turkish-Sumerian"BILGAMESH" concept that personified "human knowledge", that is, BILGI in Turkish. 

Rhoda A. Hendricks provides further background information we need. [5]

"Heracles, Greek and Roman, most renowned of the mythological heroes, famed for his courage and strength.  He was the son of the mortal ALCMENE by ZEUS, who appeared to her in the form of her husband, AMPHITRYON.  The jealousy and hatred of Zeus's wife HERA led her to send two serpents to destroy the infant Heracles, but he strangled them. He was taught charioteering by Amphitryon, the use of weapons by CASTOR, boxing by POLLUX, the sciences by CHIRON, virtue and wisdom by RHADAMANTHUS, and music by LINUS, whom he subsequently killed with his lute when he was reprimanded.  Because of this, Amphitryon sent Heracles to tend his flocks on Mt. Cithaeron.  While he was there, two lovely women, Pleasure and Virtue, appeared and forced upon him the "choice of Heracles."  he chose Virtue and a life of glory through toil. He slew the lion of Cithaeron, which had been attacking Amphitryon's cattle, and thereafter wore the lion's skin.  He returned to THEBES and freed the city from the tribute of one hundred oxen demanded annually by Erginus of Orchomenus by overwhelming Erginus' men when when they came to collect the oxen.  King CREON of Thebes gave Heracles his daughterMEGARA in marriage and other gifts came from the gods: a bow and arrow from Apollo, a sword from HERMES, armor and a club from HEPHAESTUS, and an embroidered cloak from ATHENA.  In a fit of madness sent by the still jealous Hera, Heracles murdered his children, whereupon he was told by the Delphic Oracle to go into the service of King EURYSTHEUS as penance, which resulted in his performing the twelve labours (Labors of Heracles).  On completion of the labours, Heracles rescued ALCESTES fromHADES.  Afer three years in the service of OMPHALE, he went to Troy, where he killed LAOMEDON and many of his sons because Laomedon had not given him the reward he had promised for the rescue of his daughter HESIONE. Heracles fought on the side of the gods in the war against the GIANTS and helped bring about their victory. He died whenDEIANIRA gave him a posioned cloak. After his death, he was deified and became the husband of HEBE. Hercules is the Latin form of his name."  

This citing reveals a lot of complex relations between Heracles and other mythological names  which complicates the solution of the riddle.  But Greeks most likely usurped it from the ancient native Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples and made it as their own as they have done with so many other concepts.  Evidently, the ancient Greeks could not establish the relationships between all these names and therefore could not totally explain everything.  The other side of the coin is that the ancient Greeks knew the identity of Heracles and his relations with the other names but did not want to disclose the identities of those mythological names because they were anagrammatized from Turkish. 

2.   HERACLES related to the name THEBES 

Now let us meet HERACLES once more but this time in a different light in view of all this background mythological information.  Evidently, the whole story is a gigantic riddle. But I might add that the original names related to him were concept-definitions in Turkish and were restructured in order to alienate them from Turkish. 

>From the book entitled "The Age of Heroes" by Bruce Vance (Editor), we have:

"He (Heracles) was born in Thebes and for a long time was held to be the son of Amphitryon, a distinguished general.  But in reality he was the son of ZEUS, who had visited Amphitryon's wife, ALCMENA, in the shape of her husband, when the general was away fighting. She bore two children, HERCULES to Zeus and IPHICLES to Amphitryon.  The difference in the boy's descent was clearly shown in the way each acted in face of great danger which came to them before they were a year old."   [6]

According to the mythology, Heracles was born in THEBES. The name THEBES refers to some very ancient cities. One of these THEBES cities was in the ancient Masar (Misir), that is, the land so-called "EGYPT", a name that has been given to the ancient MISIR by the wandering Gypsies in order to usurp that ancient Turanian civilization for themselves; and another THEBES city (also called the seven-gated THEBES) was located in the ancient geography that is presently called "Greece". Both of these cities named THEBES were thehead cities in their respective ancient lands, that is, MASAR (MISIR) and the ancient PELASGIAN (SAKA) lands. 

The THEBES city name has two meanings.  The obvious meaning is that THEBES is the head city of a land  and Heracles was born in Thebes of the ancient PELASKIAN land.  

The not-so-obvious second meaning of THEBES comes from a Turkish source because THEBES is the altered form of a Turkish word. The name THEBES is actually refers to the "human head". The name THEBES is a restructured, Hellenized and stolen Turkish word.  

When the name THEBES is rearranged in the form "BESHTE", we find that it is the Turkish word "BASHTI" meaning "it is the head".  Thus, it not only refers to the "head city" THEBES in a country, but it also refers to the "human head" in Turkish which is again a metaphorical "city". Hence, it is clear that the name "HERACLES" represents a concept that was born in the human head as all concepts are born in  the human head (BASh).  So Heracles was not actually a "human being" as they have conned us to believe, but rather was a personification of a concept that was born in the human head. 

At this point I must also note that the name THEBES, in the form of "HS-TEBE", is also a form of the Turkish word "AS-TEPE"  meaning 1. "peerless head"; and 2. "one hill (mountain top)".  This again verifies the fact that this ancient word THEBES was actually a Turkish word defining both the human head and also a mountain or hill.  Of course, the human head metaphorically is also a hill that is located at the top of a mountain, that is, the human body. Thus, HERACLES was a personification of a concept which was born in the human head. 

3.    ALCMENA the Mother of Heracles 

His mother's name was ALCMENA where C = K thus making the name "ALKMENA". When the name ALKMENA is rearranged letter-by-letter as "MEN-AKAL", we see the Turkish expression "MEN AKIL" meaning "I am mind", "I am wisdom". This makes the mythological name ALCMENA, that is, the mother of Heracles, a personification of the "human mind and wisdom". Turkish word MEN means "I, I am" and AKIL means "wisdom, knowledge and mind".  

Additionally, if the name ALKMENA is rearranged letter-by-letter as "ANM-AKEL",  we see the Turkish expression "ANAM AKIL" meaning "my mother is wisdom".  Turkish ANAM means "my mother" and AKIL means "wisdom and mind". This again makes ALCMENA, the mother of Heracles, a personification of the "human mind and wisdom".  

Alternatively, when "ALKMENA" is rearranged in the form of "NAM-AKEL", we see the Turkish expressin "NAMI AKIL" meaning "its name is wisdom", "its name is knowledge" and "its name is mind".  Turkish word NAM means "name" and NAMI means "the name". Here again, the not-so-obvious meaning of ALCMENA is a personification of "mind, wisdom and knowledge". Of course, "mind, wisdom and knowledge are located in the human head. 

Other possible rearrangements also refer to ALKMENA as being the "mind".  So it can be concluded that the mother of Heracles was the personification of "human wisdom" or the "human mind"  which is also located in the so-called mythological name THEBES.  In view of this finding, we know that "WISDOM, MIND, KNOWLEDGE" (AKIL, US, BILGI) are all born in the head and in the brain. That is why Heracles is also born in the "head" that is, Turkish "TEPE" or "BASH".

4.    AMPHITRYON the Father of Heracles

It is said that Heracles was the son of the mortal ALCMENE by ZEUS, who appeared to her in the form of her husband, AMPHITRYON.

G. S. Kirk writes: [7]

"All night long AMPHITRYON lay with his wife, rejoicing in the gifts of golden Aphrodite. ALCMENA, mastered by a god and by the noblest of men, bore twin sons in seven gated Thebes.  They had different temperaments, but yet were brothers: one inferior , the other much better, mighty Heracles, terrible and strong.  She bore him to the dark clouded son of Kronos, and the other, IPHICLES, to spear- brandishing AMPHITRYON."

Mythologically, the husband of ALCMENA (ALCMENE) was AMPHITRYON.

When the supposedly "Greek" name AMPHITRYON is rearranged as "PAYINHMTOR" where H is an I, thus making the rearranged form as "PAYINIMTOR", we see a restructured and Hellenized version of the Turkish expression "BEYINIMDIR" meaning "it is my brain".  The brain is located in an enclosed "room" in the head.  And the "brain" is where the "human mind" is located and where "human knowledge" is born.  Thus, the so-called "Greek" name AMPHITRYON is nothing but a personification of the "human brain" - but defined originally in Turkish and later anagrammatized into "Greek" AMPHITRYON.

AMPHITRYON being the personification of "brain", and ALCMENA being the personification of "mind", both reside inside the human head, and naturally, both lay together in the human head at all times. The Greek mind, however, had to incorporate a sexual connotation to the riddle to corrupt and alienate it from its original form.  

It is also said that ZEUS laid with ALCMENA while her husband was away in fighting.  In order to understand the meaning of this encrypted statement, we have to know the real identity of the so-called "Greek god"  ZEUS.  ZEUS, in one meaning, is the resutructured and Hellenized version of the Turkish word "SÖZ" meaning "word, speech, language" and "mouth". 

5.    ZEUS as father of HERAKLES 

Mythologically, ZEUS is also said to be the father of Heracles, although ZEUS is not regarded as the real "husband" of ALCMENA. The name ZEUS rearranged in the form of "SUZ-E" is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "SÖZ O" meaning "it is word, language". Thus, ZEUS, in one of its most important meanings, is a restructured form of the Turkish word SÖZ  and is not Greek in origin.  

Alternatively, the name ZEUS, rearranged in the form of "Z-EUS", is from the Turkish phrase aZ-AGUZ" meaning "Peerless mouth, word, language".  Hence, ZEUS the "WORD", that is,  SÖZ in Turkish, and "mouth" "aguz" in Turkish was the one who named this concept as HERACLES.  This way, ZUES was the name-father (god-father) for this concept - as "HE" also was for all of the other words coined as names for other concepts.  In this role, ZEUS (SÖZ) is another father figure, just like the Turkish "DEDE KORKUT" is the name giver and the father of names. Since SÖZ (ZEUS) the Word) gives names to concepts, it is a creator like the Sky-God. ZEUS the SÖZ lives in the human head which has been mythologically and deceptively named as OLYMPUS by the ancient Greeks. Zeus supposedly lived in OLYMPUS..  Thus when ZEUS was visiting ALCMENA, that is, the "AKIL ANA" (mother-mind) and laying with her in this Greek riddle story, it was the MIND and the WORD that were interacting with each other during a thinking process.  As we all know, in a thinking process, the MIND generates new ideas or concepts and the MOUTH names them with WORDS  thus giving life to them.  

ZEUS, in another sense, was also the supreme Sky storm god.  Regarding the full identity of ZEUS, the reader is asked to visit my paper at url

6.    HERACLES related to Roman IUPPITER (JUBITER)

Mythologically, Heracles is also described as the son of JUBITER who is equivalent to the Greek god ZEUS. Curiously the Roman name IUPPITER (JUPITER) is defined with the names of ZEUS, GEN and DIOS.  [8] JUPITER is known as the supreme god of Romans.  [9]. The Roman form of JUPITER is given as IUPPITER with the explanation that the first "I" is called a "consonant I"   [10] which was later replaced with a recently developed letter J.  The consonant letter "I" also has the phonetic values of AY, YA and YE. 

6.1    IUPPITER as "One head house"

The name IUPPITER or JUPITER has a number of meanings that surface after the name is decrypted into its Turkish source word components. First of all, when the name IUPPITER is rearranged as "PR-TIPE-UI" or "PIR-TPE-UI", it is the Turkish expression "PIR TEPE ÖY" (BIR BAS ÖY) meaning "One head house", "one top home" which metaphorically refers to: 

a) the "sky-dome above"  which is regarded as the place where the Sky-God resides.  This is verified because of the fact that Jupiter is supposed to be living in the sky.

b) the "head" of man which is an enclosed house and where the man's brain, that is, the learning and the creative power of the body is located.  Above I already noted that the name THEBES was the "human head".  Thus IUPPITER and THEBES are the personifications of the same concept but expressed by the anagram of two different Turkish expressions.  Since Heracles is related to the "human head", and thus to THEBES, he is also related to the name IUPPITER, that is, the human head "PIR TEPE ÖY". 

Thus the name IUPPITER is a personification of both the sky-god, and man's head as the ruler of man's body.  Both of them are rulers and creators.  In this context, God and the human head (Tr. "bash" or "tepe") are parallel concepts.  That is why religion says that "God made man in his own image"  even though it must have been the other way around initially. It was most likely the ancient Turanians that first envisioned a Sky God in the image of man's own head.  The name IUPPITER (JUPITER) has nothing to do with the so-called planet "JUPITER". Associating this name with this planet is a deliberate diversion and distraction from the real Turkish source identity of the name that I give above. 

6.2    IUPPITER as "Storm-God"

Mythologically, ZEUS (IUPPITER) was known to be the STORM god.  When the name IUPPITER is rearranged in the form of "PER-TIPI-U", we find that it is the restructured and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "BIR TIPI O" (O BIR TIPI) meaning "It is one Storm".  This then identifies the "storm god" aspect of the so-called Roman god IUPPITER  in Turkish. 

Turkish TIPI means "STORM", PIR or BIR means "one" and O (U) means "he/she/it and it is".  As for the gender of the Sky God, we do not know whether this concept is a HE" or a "SHE" or an "IT".  

6.3    IUPPITER as personification of "Father"

When the name IUPPITER is rearranged in the form of "PIPETIR-U", we find that it is the restructured and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "PAPADIR O" meaning "he is father" or "he is grandfather".  Zeus was also regarded as father of the gods. Turkish word PAPA (BABA) means "father".

6.4    IUPPITER as personification of  "Word"

Additionally, when the name IUPPITER is rearranged in the form of "PIR-TEIU-P", we find that it is the restructured and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "BIR DEYU" (BIR DEYI, BIR SÖZ) meaning "one word".  Turkish BIR (PIR) means "one", DEYU (DEYI, TEIU) means "word", "saying".

Thus the name IUPPITER (JUPITER), like the name ZEUS, is also a personification of "WORD", that is, language, speech, saying", that is, "SÖZ" in Turkish. 

Thus, in these contexts, IUPPITER is also related to "HERACLES" as he is a personification of a "man" and also as a "name" which is a "word".  The mouth (Turkish AGUZ) does the the naming of all concepts by assigning a "word"  (Turkish SÖZ) as name to each of them.

7.     HERACLES. 

7.1     The identity of HERACLES. 

 In view of the above identity revelations related to the name HRAKLEOUS, we can now analyze the word itself.  When the "Greek" form HRAKLEOUS is rearranged letter-by-letter as "O-ER-AKLH-US", we find that it is the restructured form of the Turkish definitions "O ER AKLI US" meaning "it is man's mind, it is man's wisdom, it is man's knowledge". Thus, the name HRAKLEOUS is a personification of "man's mind, wisdom and the collective knowledge of mankind that has been learned over the years", 

The Turkish word "AKIL" has has the following meanings attributed to it. It means: "1. reason, intelligence; wisdom, discernment, discretion. 2. mind, comprehension; memory. 3. Idea, opinion, thought. 4. Prudence. 5. Age of discretion, maturity.  [11]

Similarly, archaic Turkish word US means:"1. mind, intelligence, wisdom;  right state of mind; discretion. 2. Good behaviour."  [12]

Turkish word ER (adam, insan) means "man", and O means "it is".

In a second decryption, when the name HRAKLEOUS is rearranged as "OUS ER AKLE", we find that it is the anagrammatized Turkish expression "OGUZ ER AKLI" meaning "it is the wisdom of Oguz man" which refers to the wisdom of the ancient Turanian Oguz/Tur/Turk peoples. Turkish name OUZ (OGUZ) is another name of the Tur/Turk peoples.  

With this analysis, I have identified for the first time the real identity of this mythological personality that has not been explained clearly for thousands of years.  Even the Greeks in general did not know the real identity of HRAKLEOUS. However, the priest-linguist Greeks who usurped the concept and the Turkish language that described the mythological personality of Herakles must have known his true identity and what it personified. They would not identify what he really represented because everything about him was stolen from the Turkish language and civilization by these master deceivers of the ancient world. 

Thus we see that the ancient mythological name HRAKLEOUS is a personification of the human mind, knowledge and wisdom. That was the reason that he was able to succesfully complete the so-called twelve Herculian tasks. In order to successfully finish such tasks, one needs to have a working mind, knowledge and wisdom. But the collective human knowledge has achieved far more difficult tasks than the ones that he is said to have achieved.  He was able to build the ancient pyramids and all of the other human achievements such as the language, writing and the all others.

Jay Macpherson mentions in the book entitled "The Four Ages of Man"   [13], the following regarding Heracles:

" ..... Deianeira sent a messenger to meet him with presents, among them a newly-woven shirt died in the blood of Nessus, thus unwittingly bringing to pass the prophecy of an old oracle:  "No living man shall be the death of Heracles: by a dead enemy shall he be brought low."  Heracles put on the shirt to offer sacrifices to the gods, and immediately he felt his flesh burn in consuming pain.  He tried to tear the garment from his back, but the magic substance made it stick fast. . . . . . ."

Since Heracles is the personification of human mind, then, a living man will always have his mind alive as long as he/she is alive.  However, with the dying of a person, his/her mind also dies. However, the collective human knowledge does not die by the deat of man.  Evidently, the ancient oracle had some knowledge about the real identity of Heracles.  However, as usual with such oracles, he gave his view in a unclear fashion. 



At this point, we should recall his twin brother IPHICLES who was not as strong as Heracles. Although they were twins, only Heracles was an immortal hero. It was understood that Iphicles was the son of Alcmene and her mortal husband, while Heracles was the son of Alcmene and Zeus. 

When the name IPHICLES is rearranged letter-by-letter as "ICIS-PHLE", we find the Turkish expression "IKIZ BILI" meaning "the twin knowledge". Turkish word IKIZ means "twins", BIL means "knowledge" and BILI means "the knowledge". Thus, this Turkish expression embedded within the name IPHICLES indicates that it was the personification of a secondary knowledge which was a twin brother to Heracles.  This also verifies the known fact that the birth of Heracles and Iphicles was a "twin" birth. 

In addition to this revelation, we have another Turkish expression hidden in the name IPHICLES. When the name IPHICLES is rearranged letter-by-letter as "CISHE-PIL", we find the Turkish expression, "KISI BILi" (where S is Turkish Sh),  meaning "the personal knowledge of man".  Turkish "KISI means "person". 

The personal knowledge of man is always weaker than the accumulated human knowledge. The "personal knowledge of man" dies away when the man dies and therefore is mortal as the man himself is mortal.  Iphicles was known to be weak and mortal compared to Heracles. On the other hand, the accumulated knowledge of humanity is extremely strong and "immortal" - as Heracles himself is defined to be.


Thus, I have solved the giant riddle of who HERACLES really personified and who his twin brother IPHICLES really personified.  I was able to do this because these so-called "Greek" names were all manufactured from Turkish expressions which described the real identities of these personifications.  Obviously those people who presented these stories and riddles as "Greek" stories lied to the world.  

Heracles' personality is also an emulation of the much earlier Turko-Sumerian epic hero BILGAMESH (or GILGAMESH which is a distortion of the Turkish word AKILGAMESHmeaning "he who has acquired wisdom")  who personified human knowledge, that is, Turkish BILGI). The cabal priests of the Gypsy Greeks and the Gypsy Babylonians usurped (i.e., stole) all aspects of these ancient Turanian civilizations including their Turkish language, religion, traditions (Turkish Töre) and epics while intentionally wiping out this most ancient Turanian people.  

>From all of this, it is unquestionably clear that the ancient Greeks and all of their wandering gypsy brothers stole everything that they claim as theirs - from the much earlier Turanian Turkish civilization. The West has always held hands with their Greek brethren in stealing from the ancient Turanian civilization.  Thus, the so-called "Greek" roots of "Western civilization" is bogus.  It is not genuine.  It was all stolen from the ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples that antedated the so-called Indo-Europeans and the Semites. This western dishonesty has cast a black cloud over their so-called Indo-European and Semitic civilizations.  It is a disgrace on their part that will not be washed away for a long time.

7.2    Divine Personality of HRAKLEOUS 

In addition to the above understanding of the mythological personality HERACLES (HERCULES, HERKÜL), he also has a divine personality. Like the God concept, HERACLES, being the pesonification of human mind (Tr. "O ER AKLI US") is an endless creator itself; thus he is a "divine personality".  This we see as follows:

 When the name HRAKLEOUS is rearranged letter-by-letter as "AL-O-KUS-ERH", where Greek H is also an "I", we find the Turkish expressions: 

1.    "AL O-KÖZ ERI" meaning "that red fire man" referring to the Sun as a red glowing-fire divinity (i.e., man) ;

2.    "AL O-GÖZ ERI" meaning "that Red-Eye man" referring again to the Sun as the Sun-God;

3.    "ALa O-GÖZ ERI" meaning "that spotted-eye man" referring to the "Moon-God"; and

4.    "AL OGUZ ERI" meaning "Red OGUZ Man".  "Red OGUZ Man" in one sense personifies the Sun-God and the Sky-God deities.   Turkish AL was also the name of the Sky-God in ancient times as it presently appears in the name ALLAH (from Turkish AL ILAH) meaning the "Red Divinity". 

In another sense, the Turkish expression "AL OGUZ ERI" also refers to "The Red Oguz man", that is, the ancient Sun-God worshipping Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.  RED (Tr. AL) was the primary religious colour that the ancient Turanians must have carried as an emblem on their heads - also painting their faces red. That is why they were known as"ALBAS, KIZILBAS, ALTUN BAS" in Turkish.  The Native First Nations peoples of the Americas  so-called the "Red "Indians" also painted their faces RED in order to identify themselves with the RED SUN-GOD.  This identifies their Turanian origin. Even the Easter Island stone head monuments had red-coloured stone hats thus also making them ALBAS, KIZILBAS and ALTUN BAS peoples.

7.3    Folkloric Personality of HRAKLEOUS

The name HRAKLEOUS being a personification of "human mind and of course also the human "brain" corresponds to another folkloric character in ancient Turanian civilization.  When we rearrange the name HRAKLEOUS in the form of "OHUS-KEL-AR", we see that it is a distortion of the Turkish expression  "OGUZ KEL ERI"  meaning "Oguz Bald Man". This brings to our attention the traditional Turkish folk tale hero "KEL OGLAN ve ANASI" meaning "The Bald Boy and His Mother".

Since HRAKLEOUS is a personification of the "brain", it makes sense for it to assume a "bald" (hairless) personality because the "brain" never grows hair.  This makes him "bald".  Therefore, he is Turkish "OGUZ KEL ER" (OGUZ KEL OGLAN) meaning "OGUZ BALD BOY" or "Tur/Turk/Oguz  Bald Boy".  In Turkish culture, there are many folk tales based on the adventures of Keloglan and his mother.

Mythologically, it is said that as one of his labour tasks, HRAKLEOUS killed a "lion" and after that he wore the "lion" skin to his body and the lion's head to his own head. This mythological explanation, in one sense, is actually a metaphorical description of the "human head" and its long haired skull (Tr. "kafa tasi") that encloses the human "brain".  When a man has long hair covering his head and neck areas, his appearance is like the mane of a he-lion. 

7.4    HERAKLES versus MELKART

We have the following definition regarding MELKART from url

"Melqart, Melkart, Milkert, Milqart (Phoen.); Mi-il-qar-tu (Akkadian); Melkarthos (Greek)

Melqart means King of the City. As prototype of the Good King, he is primarily concerned with the health, prosperity, and general well-being of his people, rather than being an autocratic ruler. Originally the chief god of Tyre, where his consort was `Ashtart or Astronoë, his cult spread throughout the Mediterranean. He was quite popular in Carthage, Spain, and the Western (i.e., North African) colonies. Many scholars believe he is the source for the Greek Herakles (Hercules in Latin) with whom the Greeks identified him."

We have further information about the Phoenician MELKART from

"Melqart (less accurately Melkart, Melkarth or Melgart (Greek disposed of the letter Q (Qoppa), replacing it with additional use of K (Kappa) and G (Gamma)), Akkadian Milqartu, was the tutelary god of the Phoenician city of Tyre, as Eshmun protected Sidon. The name is a slight compression of Phoenician Milk-Qart "the King of the City". The name is a slight compression of Phoenician Milk-Qart "the King of the City". Melqart was often titled Ba‘al  ur "Lord of Tyre", the ancestral king of the royal line. In Greek he was normally referred to as the Tyrian Herakles and in Latin as the Tyrian Hercules, presumably because of a close resemblance to the Greek hero/god Herakles in mythology and cult.

Melqart was venerated in Phoenician and Punic cultures from Syria to Spain. The first occurrence of the name in a ninth-century BCE inscription from Aleppo in northern Syria, the "Bar-Hadad" inscription."

Cult: literary testimony

Melqart is likely to have been the particular Ba‘al found in the Tanach from 1 Kings 16.31–10.26 whose worship was prominently introduced into Israel by King Ahab and largely eradicated by King Jehu. In 1 Kings 18.27 it is possible there is a mocking reference to legendary Heraclean journeys made by the god and to the egersis 'awakening' of the god:

And it came to pass at noon that Elijah mocked them and said, "Cry out loud: for he is a god; either he is lost in thought, or he has wandered away, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened."

The Hellenistic novelist Heliodorus of Emesa in his Aethiopica refers to the dancing of Tyrian sailors in honor of the Tyrian Heracles: "Now they leap spiritedly into the air, now they bend their knees to the ground and revolve on them like persons possessed."

The historian Herodotus recorded (2.44):

In the wish to get the best information that I could on these matters, I made a voyage to Tyre in Phoenicia, hearing there was a temple of Heracles at that place, very highly venerated. I visited the temple, and found it richly adorned with a number of offerings, among which were two pillars, one of pure gold, the other of smaragdos, shining with great brilliancy at night. In a conversation which I held with the priests, I inquired how long their temple had been built, and found by their answer that they, too, differed from the Hellenes. They said that the temple was built at the same time that the city was founded, and that the foundation of the city took place 2,300 years ago. In Tyre I remarked another temple where the same god was worshipped as the Thasian Heracles. So I went on to Thasos, where I found a temple of Heracles which had been built by the Phoenicians who colonised that island when they sailed in search of Europa. Even this was five generations earlier than the time when Heracles, son of Amphitryon, was born in Hellas. These researches show plainly that there is an ancient god Heracles; and my own opinion is that those Hellenes act most wisely who build and maintain two temples of Heracles, in the one of which the Heracles worshipped is known by the name of Olympian, and has sacrifice offered to him as an immortal, while in the other the honours paid are such as are due to a hero."

a)  In the above citing, the Phoenician name "Melqart" is said to be noted in a ninth-century BCE inscription from Aleppo in northern Syria which is called the "Bar-Hadad"inscription." It is important to note that the name "BAR-HADAD" is a Semitized version of the the Turkish name "BIR-AHA-DADA" (BIR AGA DEDE) meaning "One Lord Grandfather". The so-called "BAR HADAD" was a name of a number of kings. The name also appears as "HADADEZER" which is again the Semitized form of the Turkish name "AHA-DADA-AZ- ER" (AGA DEDE AZ ER) meaning "Lord Grandfather is peerless Man". These names are all in Turkish origin but have been altered. (My uncle’s name was "AGADEDE").

b)  The island of THASOS is near the southern shores of Thracia in the Aegean Sea. The name Thracia was the Hellenized form of the Turkish name "TURK ÖYÜ" meaning "home of the Turks". The island of LEMNOS in the Aegean Sea was also the land of Turanian Pelasgians., that is, the ancient "SAKA" Turks - whose name SAKA was Hellenized into Greek by the Greeks as Scythians. The "Lemnos Island" inscription, as read by this author, shows clearly that they were Turkish speaking Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. (See url ). The people so called PHOENICIANS by the Greeks, who were the Turkic "GÜN-HAN" peoples, Semitized as "KANAANITE", were related to Trojans, Etruscans, Pelasginians and Cartaginians and the rest of the Turanian Canaanite peoples. They had no relation with the so-called Semitic peoples - although they probably believed in a "wind force" because they were sea-going peoples, as well as the Sun, Moon and Sky-Father-God.

c)  When the name MELKART is rearranged letter-by-letter as "AKLEMTR" or "AKLMTER" or "AKELMTR", we find that no matter which way we rearrange it, it is the restructured form of the Turkish word "AKLIMTIR" (AKLIMDIR) meaning "it is my mind", "it is my wisdom" or "it is my knowledge". In this meaning and context, MELKART also proves itself to be a personification of the "human mind". Thus the name MELKART represents the same personification as HERACLES, that is, "ER AKLI US". This also shows the correctness of my decipherment of the name "HERAKLES" .

d)  This citing also shows that HERACLES was not Greek, and the concept of "ER AKLI US" was an ancient Turanian concept as evidenced by the names BILGAMESH (BILGEMIS), HERAKLES (ER AKLI US) and MELKART (AKLIMTIR) all of which were personifications of the human mind and human knowledge - but all in Turkish.

8.    HERACLES was hostage to king EURYSTHEUS

It is said that: "In a fit of madness sent by the still jealous Hera, Heracles murdered his children, whereupon he was told by the Delphic Oracle to go into the service of King EURYSTHEUS as penance, which resulted in his performing the twelve labours (Labors of Heracles)."

G. S. Kirk writes: [14]

"The circumstances of Heracles' birth caused him much trouble, because they led to his being made subject to King EURYSTHEUS of MYCENAE, the man who imposed the Labours on him."

G. S. Kirk writes:  [15]

"But Heracles was irretrievably destined to be EURYSTHEUS' vassal.  This may reflect a historical memory of the relationship of TIRYNS, the fortress-town of which Heracles became king, to the capital city MYCENAE.  For Heracles was an ARGIVE, not a Theban, in spite of being born in THEBES. There must be some motive for the Theban detail that we do not understand."

Madness is a condition of the human mind.  Therefore it is understandable that "HERACLES", who is the personification of human mind, had gone "mad" due to some circumstances.  This episode verifies that HERACLES was a representation of human mind. 

The above so-called "mythological" explanation tries to relate HERACLES to the name TIRYNS, that is, a fortress-town.  

We are told that TIRYNS was the head city of the so-called "Greek" city state MYCENAE.  When the name TIRYNS  is rearranged as "TYSINR", we see a restructured and Hellenized form of the Turkish word "TÜSÜNÜR" (DÜSÜNÜR) meaning "he/she/it thinks". "Thinking" is done in the human "head"  which, metaphorically, is a "fortress city" where the mind is located.  Thus the so-called fortress-town of TIRYNS is actually a personification of the "thinking" that goes on in the human head.  This again identifies HERACLES as being the human mind, that is, Turkish "ER AKLI US".  And indeed the human head is a God created "town" where all kinds of activities take place at all times of the day and night . 

HERAKLES, being man's wisdom, mind and knowledge, of course does the "thinking" in order to solve the needs and problems facing the body. 

9.    The identity of King EURYSTHEUS

The name for the King EURYSTHEUS is also a very interesting and relevant one for the Heracles story.  

When the name EURYSTHEUS is rearranged letter-by-letter as "U-R-YSTEUSHE", I find the Turkish expression "O ER ISTEYUSHU" ("O INSANIN ISTEYISLERI", "CANIN ISTEKLERI O", "O ADAMIN IHTIYAÇLARI")  meaning "it is the needs and desires of man".  Indeed, man's mind is the slave (vassal) of his body's needs and desires.  He is constantly dealing with the survival of the body, living in comfort, hunger, thirst, procreation, resting, sleeping, finding shelter etc.. So "man's mind" so-called "ER AKLI US" (HERAKLES)" is always a slave to his body's needs and desires. Thus it is seen that this Turkish definition "O ER ISTEYUSHU" has been restructured and Hellenized into Greek "EURYSTHEUS". Thus King EURYSTHEUS is the personification of man's needs and desires"  - which, of course, are orders that must be fulfilled by the mind. 

10.    Identity of the name "MYCENAE"

The mythology above tells us that TIRYNS was the fortress-town of which Heracles became king and TIRYNS was the capital city MYCENAE.

This is also a riddle that needs to be solved.  Since TIRYNS was the representation of human "head" and the "thinking" that goes on in it, , then, metaphorically it is the "capital city" of the human body.  The capital city of a state is where the thinking and controlling take place for all the needs and desires of the state and similarly, the human "head" is where all the required thinking and controlling takes place for all the needs and desires of the body.  Therefore, the human head is the "capital city" of the body.  Right now, as I write all of these lines, it is my human head and mind that is doing the thinking, analyzing, understanding, concluding, composing and writing.  In that sense, I am performing my own "Herculean" task  as you the reader will also be doing your own Herculean task when you read this writing.  

Hence, when the mythological name MYCENAE is rearranged letter-by-letter as "CAN-EYEM", I find that it is the restructured, Hellenized Turkish expression "CAN ÖYEM"meaning "I am the home of life".  This, of course, is a description of the "human body" in Turkish.  The "life" giving "heart" (Tr. ÜREK/YÜREK)  centrally located in the body.  Turkish words CAN means "life", ÖY means "house, home" and ÖYEM means "I am house", "I am home".   So the name MYCENAE is a personification of the human body.

Philosophically this Turkish expression "CAN-ÖYEM" also refers to the earth and the space around it.  

Thus the name MYCENAE is a manufactured word restructured from Turkish expression "CAN ÖYEM", just like all other so-called "Greek" words and names. It is the personification of the "human body" and in a secondary sense, it personifies the earth and sky.  I (Polat Kaya) solved these riddle words on March 18, 2007 and recorded them on this page on March 19, 2007.  It was a Herculean labour!

Since we are talking about the ancient understanding of the human head, mind and body as secretly preserved in so called "mythological names", it may be helpful to give an example of how this ancient religious belief was utilized in practical terms. First of all mythological names have their parallels among the ancient place names.  Secondly, all "domed" religious temple structures were built in view of this ancient Turanian belief. Presently, one similar prominent structure is the "CAPITOL"  building in the city of WASHINGTON, D.C. in United States of America. The term CAPITOL is said to be from Latin word "capitolium" from "caput" meaning "head". Actually, the Latin word CAPITOLIUM was the name of the temple of Jupiter (IUPPITER) at Rome (also named The Capitol). Additionally, the Latin word CAPITULUM means "a little head". Above, I showed that the name IUPPITER also had Turkish "BIR TEPE ÖY" meaning "one head house". When the Latin name CAPITOLIUM is rearranged letter-by-letter as "AL-TIPI-COUM", it is found to be the restructured and Romanized form of the Turkish expression "AL TEPE KÖYÜM" meaning "I am Red-Head village" which is an accurate description of not only the human head but also the Capitol building at Rome. Similarly, the Capitol building in the capital city of Washington is a representation of the human HEAD that ancient Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples likened to GOD. In Washington, the Capitol building stands up like a giant head (Turkish BASh, TEPE) with respect to the rest of the city.  In this context, it is also a representation of the Sun and Moon that appear as a "head" in the sky.  The CAPITOL metaphorically is the head where all the thinking is done in terms of laws required for the survival of the rest of the country. This is also true for all other capital cities in the world.

Interestingly, even the name WASHINGTON, where the bogus letter W is either VU or UU, when rearranged letter-by-letter as:

a)     "GUNISTAN-OVH", I find that it is the restructured and Anglicized form of the Turkish expression "GÜNISTAN ÖVÜ" meaning "House of the Sun God". This was the name of the ancient Turanian city (presently called ISTANBUL) when it was changed to the name CONSTANTINOPLE.  Before that , it was called BYZANTIUM which was from the Turkic expression "BEYISTAN ÖYÜM"  meaning "I am the house the Lord God". which referred not only to the Sky-God but also to the kings of Byzantium. 

b)    "GONASHTI-ANU", I find that it is the restructured and Anglicized form of the Turkish expression "GÜNESTI ANU" meaning "ANU was the SUN".  ANU was the name of the Turko-Sumerian universal creator Father God some 6000 plus years ago. ANU is also the Turkish "HAN O" meaning "He is the Lord" and also "he is the space" where "HAN" means "large building" or building complex" - which "space" is. In the form "AN U", it also means "he is the sky" and "he is the time", thus referring to the Sky God as being time and sky. Of course,  the word GÜNES is nothing but the Turkish name for the SUN and the suffix TI means it is" or "it was".  Thus again we find that western civilization is sitting on the top of the ancient Turanian civilization that was created by the Turkish speaking Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples some tens of thousands of years ago. But the usurper never admits what they have taken from others. 

11.    HERACLES is said as meaning "the Glory of Hera". 

Pierre Grimal, professor at the Sorbonne, writes in "Larousse World Mytholgy"  [16]:

"The typical hero was Heracles.  His name was significant in itself, since it means "the Glory of Hera".  It was not the name of a god, but perhaps a ritual name, deliberately adopted by a votary of goddess or assigned by sacerdotal tradition to a "consort" of the great goddess of Argos.  Modern scholars are unable to give a definitive explanation of either the origin or true character of Heracles.  It seems unlikely that he was a "fallen god" or a historic figure magnified to epic proportions.  It seems more probable that he was the result of a vast mythical synthesis in which mingle and blend local legends, sacerdotal traditions from Hera's sanctuary at Argos and pre-Hellenic elements of every kind some perhaps from Syria, if it is true that Heracles was similar to MELQART in certain ways (though in fewer than have been claimed)."

First of all, as stated above, "scholars" do not know what Heracles is and what his origin was but in spite of their not knowing, they keep claiming Heracles as Greek.  Heracles, however, was not Greek (Hellen) as I have revealed his identity above.  Nor did his name mean "the Glory of Hera" - unless we know the identity of HERA.  The origin of the name Heracles and the concept that it represents were in Turkish - coming from a very ancient Turanian civilization.  

The above quotation also mentions SYRIA as a possible origin for Heracles.  But the name "SYRIA" is bogus.  "SYRIA" is a restructured form of the name "TYRIA" (TUR ÖY - meaning the "home of TURS") where the letter T has simply been changed into the letter S.  Therefore, instead of the world knowing this land as "TYRIA" (TURIA/TURKIA) - the land of the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples, the world now knows it as SYRIA and is associating it with the name "ASSYRIA"  which was "Semitic". So an intentional alteration or distortion of history has taken place. 

TYRIA was the homelands for ancient "CANANITES" (such as the Turkish speaking Hurrians, Mitanni and Phoenicians  to mention a few) who were Turanians and had nothing to do with the wandering peoples who are called "Semite" or Greek". The Phoenicians were even known as Tyrians.  Hence the name SYRIA is bogus  just like the name "EGYPT" is bogus.  In ancient times, what is presently and insistently called "SYRIA" was actually called "TYRIA" (TURIYA, TUR ÖYÜ, TYRE).  Clearly, ancient history has been intentionally confused (as the religious order of god "Jehovah" commanded) to ensure that the name TUR/TURK is obliterated so that this very ancient Tur/Turk/Oguz civilization is not recognized as Tur/Turk.

12.    Identity of HERA

The name HERA is also a personification of several different concepts as presented in one name. HERA, being the mythological wife of ZEUS (IUPPITER) is also known by the Roman name "JUNO", and is an opposing personality to ZEUS.  

a)    ZEUS is the personification of "man" (man is ER in Turkish).  HERA is a femininized form of the Turkish word ER by the addition of the feminizing suffix A, thus making it"ERA" or "HERA"  meaning "woman". 

b)    Since HERA (in the form "HARE") is the wife of ZEUS, she is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish word KARI (GARI) meaning "wife".  Wife in Turkish culture is also referred to endearingly as "CAN" meaning "life".  Thus Roman JUNO, for Hera, is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish expression "CAN O" meaning "she is life". 

c)    Since ZEUS, in one sense, personifies the "light", Hera must be the opposite of this concept. In this context, HERA is the anagrammatized form of the Turkish word "GARA (KARA, HARA) meaning "black, dark".  Thus again she is opposite to Zeus.

d)    ZEUS, in the form of "SEUZ" is an anagrammatized form of the Turkish word "SÖZ" meaning "word" or "language".  Words are generated by the MOUTH (AGUZ) which is located in the HEAD. Since HERA is known as JUNO ("CAN O" meaning "she is life"), she must, in this context, personify an essential life giving organ in the body, that is, the heart. Heart, in Turkish, is ÜREH (ÜREK, YÜREK).  HERA, in the form of "ERAH", is a falsified form of the Turkish word ÜREH meaning "heart".  So again we have Zeus and Hera playing opposite roles.  It is known that the Head and the Heart are opposites (e.g., my head said do this but my heart said do that).

e)    Mythologically, HERA is known as the jealous wife. It must be noted that in relationships, the "heart", which Hera represents in one sense, is a very jealous entity. A wife, will demonstrate her jealousy when her man shows interest to another woman.  It must be admitted though that the man is just as jealous as the woman is.  

In this context, the relation between ZEUS the Word (SÖZ in Turkish) and HERA the "HEART" (ÜREK in Turkish) puts them both in the same body.  This fact that Zeus and Hera are identified as brother and sister and also as man and wife supports this.

While the "heart" (i.e., HERA) pumps life continuously to the body and is the most essential and unnoticed organ of the body (without which the mind would die), the mouth (i.e., ZEUS) acts as the most noticeable mouth-piece for man's mind (ER AKLI US) and gets the lions share of the glory.  Thus, in this context, HERACLES may metaphorically represent "the Glory of Hera".  

G. S. Kirk [1], Emeritus Professor of Greek at Cambridge, in his book entitled, "The Nature of Greek Myths" , writes:

"That Greek myths were infected by Near-Eastern themes is of exceptional importance in itself. That is so not only because it casts a faint glimmer of light on the development of Greek culture and ideas in their formative stage, but also because it makes it easier to isolate the specifically Hellenic contribution, the particular intellectual and imaginative ingredients that made Greek civilization such a very different phenomenon from those of western Asia and Egypt. We are, of course, dealing here with possibilities that are little understood, and in addition present serious problems of ethnic and cultural definition, The very term "Greek" is full of ambiguity. 'Greek', like 'Akkadian', denotes a language rather than a people. The Greek-speaking people began to enter the Greek peninsula shortly before 2000 B.C, but they found there an indigeneous population that already had cultural and perhaps linguistic connections with Asia Minor. The names of prominent geographiacal features like Mount OLYMPUS, or the sea itself, THALASSA, of settlement-sites like KORINTHOS, LINDOS or MUKENAI (Mucenae), of vegetation like KUPRESSOS (cypress) and HUAKINTHOS (hyacinth), have close west-Asiatic parallels, and are definetely not Greek in type and origin. They were taken over by the Greek-speaking immigrants, together with heaven knows what else in the shape of myths, deities, cults and rituals. The somewaht separate culture of Early Bronze Age Crete complicates the issue, and so do the Greek speakers themselves - where they come from, proximately and ultimately? Presumably, by the THALASSA criterion, not from near the sea, otherwise they would not have needed to borrow a word for it. At present it looks more probable than not that they came from somewhere far to the north east of Greece, and moved down into the peninsula partly through Asia Minor and across the Aegean and partly through the eastern Balkan area. If so, they may have brought with them further west-Asiatic ideas, as well as older Indo-Iranian ones such as that of the sky god ZEUS."


In my paper at url  I had commented on this citing as follows:

"1. Evidently, ancient Greeks were not native peoples of the geography known as "Greece" or any other place. They were the "wanderers" (gypsies, Roums/Rums, Romans) going from place to place, but having no place of their own, nor a language of their own. They took most of their culture and language from the ancient Turanian natives of ancient Greece (Yunanistan) called Pelasgians (Turkic Saka people).


How can one have a language without having people to speak it? If ancient Greeks and Akkadians were not "people" (nation), then how did they come up with a language that they called their own? Could it be that they somehow concocted a language from an already existing universal language?"

My analysis of the myth of Heracles shows clearly that the particular intellectual and imaginative ingredients that made Greek civilization such a very different phenomenon from those of western Asia and Egypt, was their intellectual mastery of stealing everything from the ancient Turkish speaking Turanian world - just like the Akkadians did. Anagrammatizing (i.e., usurping) Turkish words and phrases was the Greek forte which enabled them to steal the language, culture, religion and history of the ancient  Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples. The ancient Greeks were indeed the master thieves just like the Greek mythological personality HERMES who was also known as the "master thief". My analysis of all the "Greek" names related to Heracles, as outlined in this presentation, is unquestionable proof that all ancient Greek names, inclusive of the personal names as well, were anagrammatized forms of Turkish expressions spoken by the much earlier native Turanian civilizations in what is now called Greece and Anatolia.  This applies to all of the so-called other European names as well. 

I have shown that in origin the name HERACLES never was a Greek name as it is wrongly known. In addition to what I have shown above, there is another reason that Heracles was not Greek.  That is because the so called "Heracles" name belonged to the Lydians of Asia Minor. Lydians were not so-called "Indo-European" people. On the contrary they were, Turanian Turkish speaking Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples although it is never admitted as such due to western taboos against the Tur/Turk/Oguz peoples.

In Asia minor, prior to the so-called "MERMNADAE" dynasty of Lydia, Lydians had another previous dynasty which was so-called HERACLIDAE dynasty. They were another line of Lydian kings whose rule lasted some 22 generations during a period of 505 years, that is, between 1221 B.C. -  716 B. C. (Herodotus, I, 7). [ see "Compendium of World history" at url ]

The name HERACLIDAE, in the rearranged form of "ER-ACLI-AEDH", is the altered form of the Turkish expression "ER AKLI ÖYDI" meaning "it was the house of ERAKLI", that is, "it was the house of wisdom and knowledge". During the so-called Trojan wars these Lydians were siding with the Trojans.  This was so because they were all Turkish speaking Turanian Tur/Turk/oguz peoples who had been the natives of Asia Minor long before the wanderer Greeks were around. As usual the ancient wandering Greeks stole every thing Turkic by way of altering the Turkic names, words and phrases wherever they went in Asia, Middle East, the Balkans, North Africa and Europe. This was their most prominent culture. 


This is the first time in modern history where the complete real identity of the mythological hero named HERACLES (Greek "HRAKLES" or "HRAKLEOUS", Roman or Latin "HERCULES" and Etruscan HERCLE) is revealed.  I have shown conclusively that these names are the different forms of the Turkish expression "ER AKLI US" meaning "man's mind and wisdom".  All of the names of the relatives of HERACLES given in mythological descriptions are also sourced from Turkish. Thus, my revelation that HERACLES personifies humanity's collective knowledge and man's personal knowledge has just come into daylight in this paper.  It is this human knowledge and wisdom that allows the hero HERACLES to come up with solutions to all sorts of problems single handedly - not his supposedly magical physical strength.  Thanks to the Turkish language and the ancient Tur/Turk/Oguz civilization that has come to present day in the Turkish culture, and my lengthy related background in these, I was able to solve this ancient and immensely complex Turanian riddle that was doubly convoluted and camouflaged by its usurpation into ancient Greek. Unquestionably, it is a Turanian Tur/Turk/Oguz riddle as a parallel in concept to the ancient Turanian BILGAMESH (so-called GILGAMESH) hero who is also a personification of human knowledge. 

Evidently all of these so-called "Greek" mythologies were not Greek at all nor were they "Indo-European" in origin.  However, the wandering ancient Greek religious order, along with the other wandering religious groups, not only stole the Turkish language in manufacturing all Indo-Euopean and Semitic languages, they also stole the ancient Turanian mythological concepts and stories by way of alteration and camouflage.  It is ironic, however, that the Greeks, by "Hellenizing" Turkish words, phrases and riddles into "Greek", unintentionally preserved the Turkish language that they thought would never be discovered again.  The truth, however, has its own way of coming into daylight - no matter how cleverly it is hidden from the human eye. 

In this paper, revealing the identity of the mythological person "Heracles", once again, proves that Turkish was the progenitor language of all times.  It was the so-called "proto language" where "proto" is from the Turkish "BIR ATA" language meaning "one father language", that is, the "SUN LANGUAGE". 

After this revelation of the real identity of the name Heracles and his relatives, it can be said that the so called ancient "Greek" and "Roman" and "European" civilizations have lost all credibility as being authentic languages and civilizations.  What they call as their own Greek, their own Latin, and all the others, are actually stolen from the ancient Turanian civilization and Turkish language.  The act of anagrammatizing the stolen linguistic material from Turkish enabled the stealers to hide what they stole.  Their method and execution of stealing, and hiding what they stole, has to be the zenith of human stealing. I must qualify this statement by excluding the ordinary European public from this usurpation because they had nothing to do with it.  They were simply innocent people that were manipulated by the politically and economically motivated, supposedly religious, cabal groups.
