    This is a classic claim made by pareidologists:

    "I notice something is lacking and by having an open mind serious progress in understanding can be made."

    The assumption being that not seeing things that aren't there is proof of a closed mind.
    Whereas is it truly an "open mind" that insists against all evidence, that something is there that isn't. Sounds like a very closed mind to me, closed to the evidence or lack thereof, closed to all related sciences, geology, archaeology, history.
    Believing everything someone tells you, against all evidence is actually rather naive.

    Afterall..."Who are you going to believe me or your lying eyes?"

    You are only open minded if you believe the same thing as the one who is stating the "facts"..

    Certainly not you, even a child could see the repeating topology.

    I mean open minded as opposed to closed minded, stubborn, ignorant, perhaps having ones head firmly stuck up ones own backside with such inflated ego and perceived knowledge that ones head has become firmly stuck.

    Another rock thread down in flames.
    I know just enough to know that I don't know what I think I know.

    I had to google "topology", but even after reading up on it, don't really get it.

    What you say above is the key point and should be the focus of your research. All I see is random waste flakes. You need to establish a clear protocol that will allow collectors and archaeologists everywhere to clearly differentiate between whatever you show here and waste flakes.

    It would also be very helpful if you can find a flintknapper that can consistently reproduce these forms, per your established specifications. That is, show that "random" is instead "intentional".

    Are these forms specific to Europe, or are they more widespread? If there is an American counterpart, I would strongly suggest ditching the "hooded figure" name because of its negative connotation on this side of the pond due to our unfortunate history with the KKK.

    Just a search for repeating patterns, and recognition thereof. Here Double chevrons, chevrons, spots, marks chips, inverse Y's in the points.

    This is a partial assemblage, a broad selection of things, this gives a much better scientific picture of a site, I should add some quote from some famous antiquarian here to explain it better. There is not a topology of waste flakes here, sorry.

    There is something intentional here, it could easily be accepted fact as long as people have faith Im not on some kind of conjob, Bob Doyle has tried to produce figurative forms, quite well respected American knapper I think.

    The forms are almost worldwide it seems, I cannot vouch for every picture of a rock Ive seen from the USA but I am pretty sure its here. Kids weare hoddies, monks dress in such robes, Im not sure 'hooded figure' immediately screams KKK? But then again im from the UK.
