Происхождение символа свастика: комета

The ubiquity of the swastika has been explained by 3 main theories:

1. independent development

- the swastika's symmetry and simplicity led to its independent development everywhere
- along the lines of Carl Jung's collective unconscious, or
- just as a very simple symbol

2. cultural diffusion from single origin

- theories of single origin as a sacred prehistorical symbol point to the Proto-Indo-Europeans,
- noting that the swastika was NOT adopted by:
--- Sumer in Mesopotamia, established no later than 3500 BC, and
--- Old Kingdom of Egypt, beginning in 2630 BC,
--- arguing that these were already well-established & codified at the time of the symbol's diffusion

3. external event

- astronomer Carl Sagan in his book "Comet" reproduced
- an ancient Chinese manuscript that shows comet tail varieties:
- most are variations on simple comet tails, but
- the last shows the comet nucleus with 4 bent arms extending from it, recalling a swastika
- Sagan suggests that:
--- in antiquity a comet could have approached so close to Earth that
--- the jets of gas streaming from it, bent by the comet's rotation, became visible
--- leading to the adoption of the swastika as a symbol across the world
