“The education of the Babylonians was entirely in the hands of the priests, who derived their knowledge from Nabu, the inventor of writing and letters, and every kind of learning – the Lord of ‘Houses of Tablets’ (or books), i.e. libraries.”
~ E.A. Wallis Budge
Babylonian Life & History, 1925
The overt evolution of the Sumerians into a Babylonian Empire is, as we have described in the prior section on history, not altogether surprising – on the surface. However, the seeker should keep in perspective just how quickly all of this developed from seemingly nothing. It is true that societal living was originally organized around state religion, but prior to this it was culminated not by the social relationships shared between people, but by their living relationship with the earth. Where first we have loosely organized nomadic hunter-gatherers that are forced to wander about or dwell in caves, essentially rolling the dice of chance for their survival, very little time passes before the sweeping transition in Mesopotamia toward planned agricultural farming and pasturing shepherds.
Available to the public for the first time ever — a comprehensive, practical, concise and economical guide to cuneiform writing, Sumerian language and its refined Akkadian use in Babylon, brought to the surface realm from the underground vaults of the world renown Mardukite Research Organization.
Credited with many ‘firsts’ in the development of human history, it is the incorporation and evolution of ‘writing’ that the Sumerians can be esteemed for – something which was undoubtedly entirely necessary for the civic growth of the human world. In fact, it is only with ‘writing’ that we have any concept at all of the history of humanity; everything prior to this inception, is rightfully considered ‘prehistoric’, at least by ‘modern’ standards.
The Mardukite Research Organization (Mardukite Chamberlains) have worked diligently since 2008 actively ‘reintroducing’ the long-forgotten paradigms of the ancient world, with particular emphasis on those considered Mesopotamian, meaning Sumerian and Babylonian. A central aspect of this work, no less so today then at the time of its original use, is the ‘written word’ is critical in the preservation, relay, spiritual life and use of the ‘traditions’ as they were set down in writing. Obscure ‘clay tablets’ with worn ‘wedged writing’ that we relied so long on for the basis of our completed archives that it seems only appropriate to give the entire ‘language system’ its respects.
According to the ancient tablets, the decision to cultivate civilization in the Middle East was not of men, but of a genetically distinct race known as the Anunnaki – those that ‘came down from the sky’ and were later called the gods of the original ‘pantheon’ of deities on earth. These cuneiform tablets also describe the originating purpose behind the ‘genetic upgrade’ of humanoids on the planet to make them fit to be workers for the gods. This began prior to what we call the Deluge and was still under the direction of ‘divine’ overseers, not yet the mortal priest-kings found in the more popular chronicles – thus not yet truly ‘human’ civilization. With the rule of men, believing themselves to be gods, the ‘seat’ of power shifts frequently throughout history – as frequently as the whims and devotions of humans change…
