Oldest Cave Art in the World - Sulawesi

Ground breaking facts in 2014; the encountering of a cave art in Sulawesi has indicated the minimum age for the stencil of opened palm ‘hand-paintings’ to be 39,900 years old, which classified it currently as the oldest hand stencil in the world. The finds from the Maros cave sites in Sulawesi raised the possibility that such art predates the exodus of modern humans (directly) from Africa 250,000 or more years ago[1].

A comprehensive research made by Dhani Irwanto disclosed a new theory hypothesizes that the lost island and city of Atlantis is located in Java Sea, Indonesia, as written in his book entitled Atlantis: The lost city is in Java Sea, published in April 2015. The latest development of research relating to Sundaland moves forward to the what is called "Out of Sundaland Theory", and exhaustive research conducted by Dhani, despite inconclusive, hypothetically promising[2]

Could Asia behold the secrets of the origins of man and progressively the origins of the Bugis? However It does not address the origin of life, an ongoing debate as theorized via abiogenesis[3]

Makam Tok Lasam

The word ‘Siglap’ is a transliteration of the Malay ‘Si-Gelap’, which can mean ‘the dark’ or ‘hidden’. There are several accounts theories as to how the place came to be called ‘Siglap’. One account says that the area begot its name because of the extremely dense vegetation in the area, making it rather dark, even in bright daylight. However, the most plausible explanation has to do with the only total eclipse of the sun Singapore has ever experienced, on 4 March 1821 at 0611 hrs GMT or 1341 hrs local time. It lasted for 2 minutes and 41 seconds.[1] The diagram below shows the trajectory of the umbral shadow cast by the eclipse in 1821.

Because ‘Siglap’ is an English transliteration, it has also been spelt as ‘Seglap’, ‘Segalap’ and ‘Seegelap’

The Legend of Tok Lassam

The Serajah Melayu (Malay Annals) mentions 7 important villages or kampongs in 14th century Singapore, but not Kampong Siglap. This means that Kampong Siglap is of a much more recent vintage. The one name which has constantly been linked with Kampong Siglap is Tok Lassam. According to Ibn Jamaludin al-Kassim, it was the Sumatran Prince, Tok Lassam, who named the village Siglap after witnessing the solar eclipse of 1821.[1] There are several versions of the Tok Lassam legend, the first of which seems more plausible.[2]
