Until when, what age and/or class will be Assyrian sculptures allowed?
In order to meet any potentially remaining communication needs among Assyrians
- (not that they are really interested in information or that e.g. Assyrian politicians would be ever interested in abandoning their secrecy) -
then why not switch over to little clay models (to carry around in backpacks)representing either ideas or syllables or even phonems(!); but the latter being feasable only with the help of Phoenician and Aramean guestworkers, of course.
The next evolutionary step will prove tricky:
Either re-invent the wheel in order to alleviate the burden of the backpacks.
But nah ! - That's too demanding -
Or to branch off into another evolutionary direction, even if a dead end one, and reinvent the Cuneiform Script !
All in all: Great stuff for an "Assyrian Theme Park" to be set up in "Kurdistan" aka "Crudistan" or "Crudelistan" or whatever.
