The 'antap' were more or less, in the longer term, the traditional leaders of American Medicine people. The tribal Chiefs of the Native American people were frequently Medicine people. The keepers of the Western Gate are the 'antap' who have the knowledge of the gate. It is the collective knowledge of tens of thousands of years of oral histories kept by Native American people. The antap refer to those of the past as "The Old Ones."
As the oral histories are kept in the unconscious, they coexist with the senses that know the collective unconscious if such a thing exists. The Truthasaur basically presents evidence bordering on irrefutable documenting behaviors that are easily classified as such. No one including the "Great Randi" has even tried.
The antap know of the oneness, a concept perhaps identical to the Dreamtime of Australian Indigenous people. Our ancestors exist there and we came from there before birth. The Indigenous Australian people describe Dreamtime as neither the past, present or future, being, rather, a place where the three combine relating events of the past through the action of our present to create our future.
The 'antap' are a subconscious society and is created first, by the original, general, conditional instructions given to Medicine Children, then later if the individual responds to conditions, they and the other 'antap' realize there is a new 'antap'. All Medicine people have the instructions that might make them an 'antap' depending how they react to conditions.
Unlike other secret societies they, the 'antap', do not wish to "be secret". They want people to know who they are and what they do. They will always have secrets because that is the nature of working with the unconscious mind. If the culture the society is a part of, knows what is possible, the activities will be monitored by the people and the members of the society can control their actions by awareness gained from people who perceive the effects of the unconscious knowledge in use.
The knowledge of the antap may provide a more tangible material manifestation from the oneness that crosses over to an apparition that can be seen by the eye and a camera.

Raphael Solares (Sun Warrior). One of the last 'antap', 1877
It seems possible that this member of the 'antap' of 1877 had created a scene in an effort to communicate to those in the future where the answers are. There is a large formation of rock north of the Grandmother Shrine that could easily be represented by the hide prop to the left of Raphael Solares. If that were the case he would be pointing with his arrow towards the shrine.
The practice of sun worship included the shaministic uses of hypnosis and somnambulism and this is was the root of the great fear of the colonizing, Anglo Europeans or their religions. Here are the Grandmother Shrine and Anapanne, the most important WINTER SOLSTICE SHRINES in the Santa Barbara area
There are twelve 'antap'. Eight are called "shawn", they can do only good. Four are called "quayan", they can do bad if it leads to good.
There is sophisticated logic in this structure.
If a wrong is done and continues to be a problem and everything that is good has been done to correct it but did not; then, if it is to be corrected, something bad may be if it does it.
After major violations of treaty law concerning the 'antap's natural knowledge of the unconscious mind and the Native actions in response, the local Medicine people were massacred and hunted down. Atrocities against the children of the Medicine people that go unrecorded or recognized in any way cause them indescribable grief. The reason for this can be found in a word "telepathy" This word should be used to describe what is;
The ULTIMATE form of human sentience.
From my experience this phenomena communicates subconscious knowledge subtle and complete beyond description. When I say I know how they feel I mean I have felt their grief.
It is vast.
We have to help them to not hate us for what we have allowed our government to do to them and life here in America. They are angry. When Chief Seattle wrote concerning the coming of the white man, "the end of life and the beginning of survival" he meant that the European government would never respect the subconscious life the Medicine people are masters of, that all human life knows. Eighty six percent of our mental ability has been ignored. The Medicine people want to stop remembering the grief and the anger carried in their oral histories perpetuated with telepathic skill. We can help them by respecting them for preserving knowledge valuable to all humanity and by communicating support for an official understanding of the knowledge that has made them victims of our government. If we can make our government respect the truth of our humanity and the past, the Medicine people can begin to stop remembering and all of us can go forward.
