Most people who know about and discover rock art avoid discussion on "meaning "

In't that the truth? (More's the pity imho, I loved all that 'wear and tear from snakes curling up' in Morris' list) . As a culture, we don't cope well with polysemic concepts. And if there's one thing RA means, it's that it means more than one thing.

What we like is to "explain away " as quickly as possible , often picking on hot topics of the day , from the early 60's we have had , ufos ,space (race)/astronomy , drugs/shamen , computers .These days climate change is becoming more often touted as an explanation for historical shifts , coming up terrorism , fall of empires/economies , sporting excellence ?

Ah, so that's what those swirly things are...the discus hurtling through the air! This is too easy :-)
