    I started this work with the belief that the Indus Valley was a Vedic culture.  I then applied the Vedic names of
constellations to the visual image of that constellation.  For instance Taurus the fourth constellation, the Vedic name
was Rohina here the fish glyph with protruding spins fit the visual image of the constellation and one dictionary
definition of Taurus is a fish.  I have found all the names except for Svaita the 15Th Sapta constellation.  I then was
able to proceed to writings found on metal, this lead to a search for the planets.  Two Tin ingot where found with Indus
Valley writing on them  one ingot's glyphs were a variant of the name I found for the constellation Bhadrapata, two
glyphs form this name Bhadra- pata.  The variants I found were Guru(tin)  and Pattra (ingot) this is one word
Gurupatra, the other tin ingot found fit the word Kutila-pattra (Kutila-pattra this is two words that means tin ingot).  
Kutila  means both tin and the retrograde motion of a planet (it can also mean the retrograde motion of the moon), this
started my search for names of planets prior to the Kutila glyph. The Vedic names of planets were often formed from
the names of star constellations luckily these same names for planets formed names of seasonal astrological events.  
After this phase I was able to tackle the more complected Sumerian Indus Valley decipherment below. I used the
work of  L. Austine Waddell who also believed the Indus to be Vedic, he showed in his work a clear connection in
form and structure or the placement of glyphs in the seals. These expressions of dates were employed by the
Sumerian's during the time of the seals. In the evolution (the time of the seals)of  Sumerian hieroglyphic forms
L.Austine Waddell showed a connection both in forms of individual glyphs and in it's placement in a hieroglyphic
sentence. Page 10 on the prior page deals with the Unicorn one of the most used pictorial image on the seals reads
ekazRGga equals the name of Vishn2a.  Vishn2u is the "slayer of the Asura Vr2ishabha" and Vr2ishabha is the bull or
the zodiacal sign Taurus (page 15 of prior page). On the Sumerian seals (Sumerian 10) the pictorial image (the
unicorn) is replaced by the hieroglyphic signs that form the Visual image of Taurus (Sumerian 2). The Sumerian seals
that show a similarity to the Indus seals are undeciphered in that the entire hieroglyphic sentence is not completely
understood.  In this translation of the hieroglyphic words I show these seals to be dates put on shipping seals.  The
fragmentation of  Sumerian cuneiform I believe was caused by  the adoption of a foreign script.  After the catastrophe
of Mesopotamia around 2800 BCE (possible earlier), I believe the Indus Valley rebuilt Mesopotamia and gave them
their script, at any rate cuneiform images start apearing around this time. Given the proximity of both nations to each
other and a visual similarity of their glyphs I'm claiming there was an exchange of the art of writing and the earliest signs
are being found in the Indus/Elamite reagion. These dates reflect the use of an astrological calender that starts in Citra
(Virgo) spring (45degrees from spring in Taurus).  Page 15 shows Taurus as the one horned bull.    These dates are
from an original Zodiac calendar, most Indus seals have a Unicorn for Taurus (the busiest time of the year for shipped
goods "Spring") This calender I believe used the vedic name Dhruva the star Polaris to fix the northern celestial pole.  
At the start of the calender %6500 years ago the star Virgo was in the summer solstice not the spring solstice, because
of the use of Polaris to align northern celestial pole Citra (one quarter of a years deference) became
spring.                                       All Sanskrit values from Sanskrit, Tamil and Pahlavi dictionaries; version of Monier
