Real Ancient Magic Rites & Rituals – Incantation of Eridu, The Deep of Enki | Sumerian Babylonian Mesopotamian

Through Marduk, the power of Eridu – incantation-prayer – was taught to the scribes of Nabu and the Mardukite Priests, who were taught to attract and compel the ‘gods’ in the name of Marduk, always incanting the word-formula of the highest order: Nabu invoked by way of the name of Marduk; Marduk invoked by way of the name of Enki, Our Father, who in turn would invoke by the name of Anu – and so was born the concept of magical hierarchies, an ideal that was convoluted and obscured when employed later (during the Middle Ages and such), particularly distorted by the Judeo-Christian paradigm as evident in many popular grimoires
–The Book of Marduk by Nabu

Many version of Erudite magic may be found through the Mesopotamian ‘spiritual’ (or ‘magical’) cuneiform texts. The incantation tablets from the ‘Mardukite’ Babylonian Anunnaki tradition, specifically those used and forged by scribe-priests of the Order of Nabu, are invoked from the ‘perspective’ (authority) of NABU – as was the tradition learned verbatim from MARDUK. In both scholarly and esoteric ‘Mardukite’ texts, the ‘Opening Ritual’ of Mardukite magic is derived from the source titled: “The Incantation of Eridu.”

JOSHUA FREE explains this magic in the Liber-50 material released as SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free, also available in the Year-2 Mardukite Core Anthology GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON edited by Joshua Free.

Perhaps the most fundamental ‘formula’ of the magical system in Babylonia, if there is one, goes back to the heart of the system born of the scribe-priests and the figures who brought this system about – NABU and the appropriation of his father, MARDUK as the chief director. This is the spiritual acknowledgment alluded to by the Incantation of Eridu, also known as the ‘Incantation of the Priest of Eridu’ (Eridu being the shrine-home of ENKI), or the ‘Incantation of the Deep’, which simply refers to another name for the far-away abode of ENKI near the Persian Gulf.

Ceremonial activation of the ‘birthright’ of Anunnaki power sealed in Eridu (and then in Babylon) allows a practitioner to assume the representative form of the “ Priest of Eridu,” a title first bestowed upon MARDUK by ENKI, then passed onto NABU during the solidification and heights of the Babylonian era. The esoteric key in effect here is that the priest conducts the incantations (ceremony) as the embodiment of an intermediary ‘messenger’ deity – the original semantic of the word “invocation” – thereby directing the cosmic (world) order, in essence, first hand.

The magician approaches his deity as himself – a servant priest – and petitions to assume the godform, whereby he continues the ceremony as a divine representation of the god ‘invoked’. An almost identical principle appears within Semitic mysticism and the Judeo-Kabbalah – an excellent example being found in contemporary Catholicism, when the priest ‘assumes the Christ-form’ to effectively perform a perceived alchemical transmutation on the sacramental bread and wine, conducted as a representative of Jesus on earth, in imitation (dramatic reenactment) of the Last Supper.

In the ‘Mardukite’ system observed in Babylon, the god being invoked is MARDUK. This is affirmed with the priest’s first utterance of: “It is not I, but Marduk, who speaks the incantation.” And from then on the system is sealed and readied for use by the Mardukite devotee. Consider the lines in this conjuration, adapted from the Mardukite Tablet-Y in NECRONOMICON ANUNNAKI BIBLE edited by Joshua Free:

It is not I, but Marduk, Slayer of Serpents,
Who summons thee.
It is not I, but Enki, Father of the Magicians,
Who calls thee here now.

An examination of the remaining lines of the ‘Incatation of Eridu’ appears here, though the “Mardukite” version is given fully in the Tablet-Y Series. As described, the ritual operates as if from the perspective of NABU (speaking for MARDUK). Though variations exist across the opening lines of several Assyrian “exorcisms,” one key tablet example – translated by R.C. Thompson as his “Tablet N” for Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia (1903) – relates:

The Priest of E.A. [Enki] am I.
The priest of Damkina [Ninki] am I.
The messenger [Nabu] of Marduk am I.
My spell is the spell of E.A [Enki].
My incantation is the incantation of Marduk.
The ‘magic circle’ of EA [Enki] is in my hand.
The tamarask (of Anu), in my hand, I hold.

From the modernized Mardukite version, the opening lines read (from Tablet-Y in Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible):

I am the Priest of Marduk,
Son of Our Father, Enki.
I am the Priest of Eridu,
And the Magician of Babylon

The Assyrian version continues humbly as follows:

EA [Enki], King of the Deep
See me favorably.
I, the magician, am thy slave.
March thou on my right hand,
Assist me on my left;
Add thy pure spell to mine.
Add thy pure voice to mine.
O god that blesses me, Marduk,
Let me be blessed, wherever my path rests.
Thy power, shall god and man proclaim.
And I too, the magician, thy slave

E.A. Budge transliterates an older version for Babylonian Life & History (1883) and we see a slightly different method for petitioning the “younger pantheon” to the side of the priest:

I am the Priest of EA [Enki].
I am the Magician of Eridu.
Shammash [Samas] is before me.
Sin [Nanna] is behind me.
Nergal is at my right hand.
Ninurta is at my left hand

Later added to this, the modern Mardukite version appends:

Anu, above me, King of Heaven.
Enki, below me, King of the Deep.
The power [blood] of Marduk is within me.
It is not I, but Marduk, who performs the incantation.

SUMERIANS, BABYLONIANS & ANUNNAKI GODS OF ANCIENT MESOPOTAMIAN RELIGION

Secrets of the Anunnaki & The Origins of Babylon

RETURN TO THE SOURCE — to traditions and spirito-mystical systems of the Middle East, those born from ancient Sumerians and afterward extended to interpretation by Chaldeo-Babylonians, Akkadians, Assyrians and even Egyptians. The spread of this tradition across Europe led to even more fanciful and colorful realizations of the primary Olympian mythology first realized in ancient Mesopotamia!

Discover the secrets for yourself in SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free — The most critically acclaimed and bestselling materials from the Mardukite Research Organization now available in one volume! A master compilation of mythological and religious exploration into the heart of ancient Mesopotamian Mysteries, this easy-to-read post-modern anthology illuminates the ancient world using revolutionary teachings and source materials in a way never before seen… for thousands of years!

The nature, identity and relationship of ancient Mesopotamian Anunnaki “gods” – those of the Sumerians and Babylonians – is very important, not only for understanding the literally ‘Mardukite’ work, but also for possessing a greater ‘wideangle’ vision of life, reality and existence – not to mention understanding your own place and legacy within it.

All of the original and later work of the ‘Mardukites’, all of these other authors and producers and their theories and explanations of things past, present and even future – they are all dependent on a clear and concise basis of understanding and comprehension of the very root element that it all surrounds – the very beings that made all of this history and human development possible. For without this key knowledge, and an objective one-to-one correlation of this knowledge with reality, all of the other research, reading and even the experience of life and reality will be undertaken ‘out of context’ of what is Truth.

The meaning and innate desire to pursue truth, particularly what has been known as the Secret of the Ages, is no less obvious in the realm of science and academia then it is in the world of the occultist. Those who have been dubbed ‘occultists’ or ‘esotericists’ are not the only ones interested in SUMERIAN RELIGION, nor are they even the original ones. Only the methodologies and intentions differ. And yet again – all is connected.

The recovery of the truth of mankind’s past is paramount to the fate of humanity’s future. Thus, it should could by no surprise that the geographic terrain of its origins has been the victim of unyielding war and suffering for thousands of years – further enshrouding those unveiling efforts with a measure of hesitation and doubt painted by political opinions of the modern Middle East, and for our purposes, what the academicians have called the Ancient Near East. Relative power within the modern world and human society is a ‘fleeting glamour’ and wholly representative; yet, if anything on the planet can be said to represent ineffable true worldly power by the ‘sword’ and ‘shield’ of truth, it is from those objects of ancient knowledge that come to us from this place.

SUMERIAN RELIGION by Joshua Free : Arriving on the surface world from the underground – an amazing insight into the Anunnaki ‘alien gods’ and the establishment of human civilization famously accounted by the Sumerian and Babylonian traditions. Prolific writer, Joshua Free, presents this topic such as the modern world has never before had access to, developed from the revolutionary work conducted by the next generation of Seekers actively using a revival Anunnaki tradition in the present day. SUMERIAN RELIGION is not merely the presentation of dry academic renderings of obscure tablets; this book will take you on a progressive journey that is just as relevant and critical today as it was thousands of years ago! Uncover the mysteries that lay hidden in ancient Sumer, with a message so relevant today, it is no wonder it became the greatest kept secret of Babylon!

Mesopotamian Wars Cover-Up: Ancient Anunnaki Sparked Illuminati World Order says Cuneiform Tablets

1184961_500931069976221_1664449295_n

“As above, so below; On earth, as it is in heaven.”(1)

Mesopotamian society remains scholarly recognized as the “cradle of civilization” for good reason. While many prehistoric and antediluvian remains are found prior to the invention of cuneiform script writing, it is the Sumerians who cultivated “World Order” for the first time in the history of modern humans, forever changing consciousness on the planet in accordance with it.

According to ancient Sumerian and Babylonian religious and spiritual texts, this “World Order” came from ‘above’ and was the decree of the ‘gods’ – the Anunnaki – a specifically unique group of beings appearing early on the scene of modern human evolution (even credited with accelerating the same). Simultaneously, the Anunnaki teach and install new ‘governing systems’ into their “World Order” – something that transformed the ancient world from the loosely tribal former standard of semi-nomadic hunter-gathering into the urbanization that has been the mindset of humanity ever since.

cuneisdgsdg an-bala ki-bala an-ba ki an-ba(2)
‘He who crosses the heavens, crosses the earth;
He who apportions the heavens, has apportioned the earth.’
(3)

Language in this verse remained cryptic and elusive to modern cuneiform transcribers in spite of its simplicity. The “reality” cues encompass all that exists in the Universe – both the heavens ‘an‘ and the earth ‘ki‘. When used separately these words indicate what is above and beneath us in the manifestation that we experience as reality. Likewise they could even be interpreted to represent all that is present, both seen or “physical” (ki) and unseen or “divine” (an). In fact the Sumerian word for all that there is in existence (or “Universe”) is actually the compound segment ‘an-ki‘.

SUMERIAN VOCABULARY
an – heavens, sky / god, star, planets(4)
bala – cross [-over], rotate(4)
ki – earth(4)
ba – allot, divide, appropriate(4)

NecroBible6ththumb Cuneiform tablets reveal that the Anunnaki measured, appropriated and formed their “order” of things in the Universe, responsibility became divided between what is “above” versus what is “below.” Incidentally, they even drew lots.

The Elder Gods of the Anunnaki came together.
With lots they decided the fate of the world.
ANU – the “Father of the Heavens” – would remain in heaven.
ENLIL – the “Royal Heir” – was given the command of the airs.
EA [ENKI] was given control of the “Waters of Life” on earth.(5)

For thousands of years, mystics have sought to relay the simple message that there is an energetic interconnectedness to all things – heaven and earth; seen and unseen. It is the observation and direct experience of this wholeness-factor that actually gives the mystic, magician, seer or sorcerer what appear to be “supernatural” knowledge and abilities, when nothing could be further from the truth – it is all quite “natural.”(6)

(6) The same type of ‘Divine’ sanction became the foundation of the Catholic Church with the statement “what you decree on earth will be held in heaven,” etc. Other world religions have adopted similar statutes to self-validate their beliefs.

Cuneiform Tablets Revealed! Sumerian Proverb Warns: Be Careful What You Think

claytabletsheader

“What the mind believes, the spirit reinforces.”(1)

When describing experiences of reality and the manifestations of the physical world, transhumanist Robert Anton Wilson once wrote that “whatever the thinker thinks, the prover proves.” For thousands of years mystics have urged us that our “energy flows where attention goes,” that “belief imparts reality,” and we certainly cannot dismiss how the mind directly affects how we process our day-to-day experiences. Our lives become energetically intertwined into where we put our focus and what we value most. We are what we think we are and life becomes what we make of it – for better or worse.

cuneisdgsdg da-ga nam-ku-zu d-Lamma a bi-ib-gar (2)
(When) reason was perserverant, the guardian-genius reinforced it.‘ (3)

The original transliteration of this proverb invokes the ‘d-Lammasu‘ of Mesopotamian tradition – the prototype of the now familiar “guardian angel.” Later examinations of similar tablet series revealed the word ‘an-Kal‘ in its stead, implying “what is most highly valued.” In either case, when the mind makes solid some bit of reasoning, the observation and personal experience of reality collapses to this belief. Such a paradigm or “mind-set” becomes the static program that interprets all of the sensations and data flowing in from a seemingly separate world external to us. What we envision, we can also create and manifest in reality. When we do this, the “God-part” or “higher genius” of our being becomes awakened and active to ‘reinforce’ our will.(6)

SUMERIAN VOCABULARY
da-ga – perseverance(?), to be ubiquitous (4)
nam-ku-zu – cleverness, wisdom, reason (4)
d-/dingir – ‘prefix determinative’ / god, star, planet, spirit (5)
Lamma – ‘guardian spirit’, ‘higher genius’ / Lammasu spirit
(an-)Kal – to be valued, rare or precious (5)
bi-ib-gar – literally: “placed its strength (or ‘arm’) upon it” (4)
ib-da-na – lay down with, to be mated with (4)

SumerianReligion2ndfrntcrop Alternative interpretations emerged from newer transliterations provided by Thorkild Jacobsen in his notes for the 1959 edition of “Sumerian Proverbs.” His translation of da-ga comes from the root ‘dag‘ – “to move about here or there” or “to be ubiquitous.” He goes on to translate ‘dag-a‘ as a person who is “roaming, vagrant or homeless” and when combined with his translation of ‘ib-da-na‘, the proverb is restated as: “A wise man makes the homeless welcome, and they are able to lie down.” In this light, given what is known in our ‘Sumerian Vocabulary‘, the proverb could also read: “a resourceful traveler values rest” or “the wise wanderer’s spirit finds rest.”

(5) Sumerian vocabulary derived from the Mardukite handbook: Secrets of Sumerian Language edited by Joshua Free.

Mesopotamian, Sumerian & Babylonian Cuneiform: Wisdom Tablets, “Destiny” as Origins of Astrology

claytabletsheader

3. “When disaster is self-made, no man can interfere.” (1)

Mesopotamian religious and spiritual traditions carry a uniquely dynamic vision of ‘divinity’ and ‘spirit’. As explained in Secrets of Sumerian Language,” the cuneiform ‘cross’ sign ‘dingir‘ (Akk., ilu ) that prefixes divine names of the Anunnaki pantheon also applies to ‘celestial’ or ‘heavenly’ bodies – “planets” and “stars” symbolic and representative of the Anunnaki pantheon thought to hold precedence over mundane affairs. The belief literally stood that all physical worldly manifestations and outcomes on earth (in the material world) possessed an ‘unseen’ influence of “perturbation” by ‘divine’ and ‘otherworldly’ energetic currents (from the ‘spiritual’ or metaphysical world). Initial correspondents of these currents between individual Anunnaki and their associated planets. Additional systematization of these concepts led the Babylonian inception of astrological traditions still observed today.

cuneisdgsdg nig-ku-lam-ma dingir-ra-na-ka su—tu-tu nu-ub-zu (2)
‘The destruction is from his own (personal) god; he knows no savior.’ (3)

Literal translation of dingir-ra(-na-ka) indicates that the aforementioned disaster comes from “one’s own personal god.” While ancient Sumerian and Babylonian spirituality did incorporate personal tribal or familial (ancestral) ‘deities’ and “guardian spirits,” such are generally related to lesser spirits: the sedu (spirits) and lamassu (guardians) that make greater appearances in the religion and magical traditions of the (post-Sumerian) Babylonian (Akkadian and Assyrian) Mardukites. Modern interpreters of this line read it literally and translate the sentiment as: when a man loses his favor with his personal deity then he has no one to appeal for him to the higher powers. (6)

sumlangthumb In Secrets of Sumerian Language, the distinct philosophical difference in Mesopotamia between ‘fate’ and ‘destiny’ is described based on its cuneiform usage. A person’s life has a ‘destination’ or ‘destiny’ that is fixed “in the heavens” by the gods or ‘stars’ in “zones of influence.” In comparison, a person’s ‘fate’ refers to subconsciously chosen environmental conditions that comprise a life-path that is not necessarily “fixed” while they are on their way to a destination that is fixed. In other words, it is the ‘route’ one travels on their way to a final ‘destiny’. Whether decreed by one’s own ‘personal god’ or ‘personal star’ or even erupting from one’s own “god-self,” this cuneiform line seems to indicate a ‘thing’ that is unavoidable or cannot be prevented by the person themselves or another human: such a thing on earth has been decreed in the heavens. (3)

SUMERIAN VOCABULARY
[nig-] – ‘abstract’ / a thing (7)
ku-lam-ma – destruction (4); a thing forgotten (8)
dingir – ‘prefix determinative’ / god, star, planet, spirit (5)
su—tu-tu nu-ub-zu – it cannot be prevented; or ‘avoided’ (9)

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop Original analysis of the original Sumerian Proverb tablet series occurred using an elementary understanding of cuneiform script and Mesopotamian languages. Thorkild Jacobsen replaced Gordon’s original translation of su—tu-tu as “savior,” noting the Akkadian equivalent (‘ekimu‘) implies to “rob, steal or take away” (and not “to save”), meaning that the disaster/destruction that has been brought on into one’s life cannot be “touched” or “interfered” with and is thus “inevitable.” This more advanced rendering reveals a much deeper understanding of the ideal that what a person is due, they are due and a person receiving the harsh lessons of their life is unable to be assisted or coddled through it by any other power – they must simply experience, endure and, hopefully, survive the course with lessons learned. Quite simply, no one can interfere and safeguard against a person hellbent on making their own mistakes. (3)(9)

(7) The Sumerian cuneiform prefixing sign ‘nig‘ – found at the start of lines throughout this particular series of ‘proverb’ tablets – indicates an attached statement regarding a ‘thing’ as an “abstraction” (concept) rather than always to be treated as a literal “thing” (object).

(8) An alternate translation to nig-ku-lam-ma is offered in the collected notes and revised additions of the 1959 edition by Edmund Gordon as: “a thing which has been forgotten.”

(9) Alternatively suggested by Joshua Free as “no one can prevent” or “no one can avoid” from the literal Akkadian ekimu – “none may ‘steal’ away.”

Sumerian Wisdom & Babylonian Cuneiform Tablets: Wisdom on Civil Disobedience, Submission & Defiance

2. “What is given in submission is a catalyst for defiance.” (1)

The ‘Near East’ of the ancient world, now called the ‘Middle East’ today, has never found an equilibrium of political or military peace. Imaginary borders and boundaries, not to mention total conquest of the Babylonian Empire, meant a king could be a true conqueror of the ‘known world’ and legitimately the most powerful of figures in its midst.

cuneisdgsdg nig-gu-gar-ra nig-gaba-gar-ra (2)
That which is given in submission becomes a medium of defiance.‘ (3)

When the annals of Mesopotamian history are examined, a seeker discovers a broad legacy of constantly shifting sands of power, dynastic reign and the geographical realm of an empire’s capital city all play a part in military management of these ancient forces that fought for control of the Tigris and Euphrates river valley (Mesopotamia), the resources it contained (abundant when tapped properly), the recognition of and authority over a sweeping population (the largest urban centers of the ancient world) and the state-religions governing the whole system (that have gone on to shape even the programming of the modern world).

sumlangthumb The actual cuneiform verse can be translated in two different ways. Both are meant to convey the same sentiment. Early transliteration scholars recognized that ‘gu-gar‘ and ‘gaba-gar‘ refer to ‘things’ of submission (gu-gar) and defiance (gaba-su-gar), which makes the statement we have above possible. However, if the ‘figure of speech’ is to be taken literally, then the ‘thing’ given is a “neck” (gu) beneath (“submission”) your opponents foot – or else, “sticking your neck out” – and this ‘thing’ becomes a ‘thing’ (placed) against the opponents chest, a sign of “defiance.” (7)

SUMERIAN VOCABULARY
[nig-] – a thing / ‘abstract’ (4)(7)
gu-gar – to submit / give submission (4)
gu – neck (5)
gaba-su-gar – of defiance / to defy (4)
gaba – chest / breast (4)

sajahafronthumb The cuneiform author suggests ‘taking one for the team’, giving motivational due to one who executes gainful sacrifice for a better future outcome – or, at least, the possibility of one. Considered in the spirit of ‘civil disobedience’ as suggested by classic writer, Henry David Thoreau, the advice may be for the ‘common folk’ rather than warlords and kings, and suggests that one keeps their head down in order to ‘fight another day’.

Sumerian Proverbs & Babylonian Wisdom: Ancient Cuneiform Tablets Reveal Emphasis on “Truth”

claytabletsheader

“Whoever partners with Truth, creates Life.” (1)

At the forefront of the ‘Sumerian Proverbs’ [Liber-P] Old Babylonian (Akkadian) cuneiform tablet series is a homage to the universal and ineffable spirit of Truth – that enigmatic force – a driving pursuit at the core of all language arts at the cradle of modern human civilization sciences…

cuneisdgsdg nig-ge-na-ta a-ba in-da-di nam-ti i-u-tu (2)

‘Whoever has walked with truth generates life.’ (3)

Communicating this philosophy to modern minds in English language is difficult. The sentiment carried is greater than to simply say: ‘whoever is true’ or ‘whoever is with truth’. It also does not say ‘whoever is filled with truth’. Whether we adopt the -da/-ta (together with) or -ta[b] (partnered with) interpretation, the implication is that ‘whoever’ is deeply ingrained or ‘bound’ to Truth; it is next to them, it is their companion, or else they have taken it as a friend, forsaking all others that might break that bond.

sumlangthumb I favor this preferred meaning over the original interpretation of having ‘walked with truth’ (impermanent past-tense). I understand the original author/translator meaning to imply the ‘walking with a companion’, but the interpretation seems vague if not misrepresenting the actual Sumerian Lexicon being evoked.

SUMERIAN VOCABULARY

[nig]-ge-na – truth (4)

-da/-ta – beside, in vicinity of, together with (5)

-ta[b] – friends, companion, partner (5)

a-ba – who? / whoever (5)

nam-ti – fate/nam; life/ti (5)

u-tu – to bear ‘children’, give birth to (5)

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop Given that the word for ‘generating’ or ‘creating’ life given here is the same word meant to imply literal ‘birth-giving’, the romantic interpretation of this proverb is that ‘whoever partners with Truth as a lover’ will ‘give birth to Life’ – they will ‘radiate’ or ‘generate’ a prosperous life. The subject is not simply ‘building’ or ‘constructing’ the life out of preexisting materials but is literally ‘giving birth to’ their existence, life or reality as a result of their union with Truth – living in harmony with observed cosmic forces and thereby manifesting the desired life and result.

A New Mesopotamia Born from Iraq: Babylon Rises Again! | Middle East News

Lamassu.Nabu_2

Thousands of years of political discord, dragon-fights between dynastic and royal bloodlines, new waves of Judeo-Christianity and Islam overshadow the previously observed traditions of the Anunnaki… A cradle of civilization, birthplace of systems and arts of humanity… Religion. Language. Politics. Mesopotamia – Land Between the Rivers – as it was once known from its Greek name; Iraq today, but what of tomorrow?

magansmall After years of the Piscean Age ruled by non-Babylonian Arabs and the near extinction of the Yezidi tribes, who will lay claims to the boundaries of Mesopotamia in a post-modern — post-Iraq — future ever changed by wars for oil, scarred by military from several nations, the rule of Saddam Hussein, and now the Islamic State? Where will the new political boundaries lie when the Middle East disbands and there becomes a New Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates? And who will be seated in New Babylon when the coming age arrives?

“The exact political boundaries of Babylonia are not generally agreed upon – no more today among scholars and nationalists then by those who physically fought for them in periods of antiquity. For as long as humans have been involved, the are has been plagued in constant conflict…”
— Joshua Free, Liber-51/52

…Mesopotamian territory often included areas outside the pathway of the two rivers, which even themselves changed positions over time with the alteration and then absence of human intervention via the aqueduct canal systems (and other natural occurrences).

MesopotamianReligionFrontcrop By today’s standards the “Middle East” or “Ancient Near East” includes the geographical locations occupied as Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Lebanon, Israel, Syria and the United Arab Emirates.

Mesopotamian kingdoms also included (at some time or another) occupations in modern-day Turkey, Armenia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt and Sudan. The term “Middle East” is a modern Euro-centric semantic replacing the academic usage of the ‘Near East’ (as opposed to the ‘Far East’ or “oriental”).

With few exceptions, the Middle East and its ancient Anunnaki legacy is the origin of most major world religions in history including Zoroastrianism (Mazdaism), Mithraism, Canaanite, Yezidism (Yazdanism), the Baha’i Faith, Manichaeism (Mandaeism), Islam (Muslim), Judaism and Christianity!

mesopotamia_map The overt evolution of the Sumerians into a Babylonian Empire is 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.

cuneisdgsdg Credited with many ‘firsts’ in the development of human history, it is the incorporation and evolution of cuneiform ‘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.

According to ancient cuneiform 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 appeared to ‘come down from the sky’ and were later called the gods of the original ‘pantheon’ of deities on earth…
