Abstract. The article presents the author's concept of the origin of ancient architecture as a symbolic "simulation of the Universe" in the framework of representations of a particular era. Common is the allocation of a " Central place "where the gods created the visible world, and the ritual repetition of the procedure of" creation " in the construction of dwellings, and even more temples. At the same time "mastering" of linear non-repeating time and its expression in symbolic forms was carried out.

Keyword. Mastering space and time, "Central", "axis Mundi", the flow past to the present and the present into the future, sacrifice, world mountain, world pillar, the symbol of the Demiurge.

There are apocryphal legends that say that Christ was crucified on a cross made from the trunk of the Paradise Tree of Life (from which Adam and eve "ate"), carried out during the flood by water from Eden to Palestine.
