Jericho is the oldest documented city on our planet. Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of more than 20 successive settlements in Jericho, the first of which dates back 11,000 years (9000 BC).

Astrogeographic position of Jericho for morphogenetic field level 1 which reveals the supraregional topics of this early technologically highly developed urban center: Jericho lies at 6° Aries and 15° Aquarius. The morphogenetic field of the region includes Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and  largest parts of Israel.  The coordinates of the region make it a highly instable area disputed between tribes and people from all sides.

Mohenjo Daro is the world’s only surviving Bronze Age metropolis. An estimated 40,000 inhabitants had a highly developed road and water supply system. Buiult around 2500 BCE, it was one of the largest settlements of the ancient Indus Valley civilization, and one of the world’s earliest major cities, contemporaneous with the civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Minoan Crete, and Norte Chico.

For comparison the super capital of technological supremacy Rome had both astrogeographical positions in Gemini. The 2nd coordinate is located on 8° in earth sign Taurus the sign of the earth, agriculture, food, wealth, market places and , possessing territory.

The combination of these 2 signs desrcribes the situation of the region of the Mohenjo Daro culture as the arcetypal example for the step of development from an agriculturally highly successful to a technologically developed urban society.
