If I understand correctly after some brief research. Maybe someone else with more knowledge can add some more important information.
The Ziggurat was a building in ancient Mesopotamia that could have inspired stories of the Tower of Babel. Could this in combination with Phoebe’s comments on Paleo Xenolinguistics, ( I guess a study of combined alien writings?) Send us in the right direction to decipher the thrall writing?
Does anyone see any other connections? I’ll look more into this after work today. Feel free to use this thread to post ideas for translating the thrall writing.
