The Cosmic Wisdom of Sumerian Mystics

  1. We see that you subscribe to the notion of the story of the Anunnakis being a myth and have attempted to demythologize it here. Well, for now, we shall continue to assume the story to be literal actual events that happened hundreds of thousands of years ago, and not a myth. Sorry!

    1. I’ve read both Sitchin and the seminal book by Graham Hancock. I don’t discredit the idea that those myths were literal, but there is also the possibility that they conveyed more than one meaning, one literal, the other figurative. I’d like to give our ancestors more credit than most scholars are willing to extend them: to Sumer, writing was a technology, an important technology. We take it for granted now, but I do believe that our ancestors used it for ways we are hardly even beginning to understand. I would also like to suggest that you read some of the original Sumerian texts. Many of them are available online. If you seek to interpret them literally, you will see the task is not so easy as Sitchin and company would have us believe. They are complex narratives, with curious repetitions, and conclusions that are derived from very curious and somewhat baffling premises. I would suggest your considering the possibility that what they wrote was not necessarily intended to be taken literally, however true or untrue it may be that they knew something of alien cultures or spiritual entities that we do not.

      1. If Sitchin was correct about our planet being dominated and controlled by reptilian/Anunnaki alien forces and their overlords in the astral realm, Sumerian humans would want to tread very lightly. Fearing for their lives, they would most likely not seek to be too literal when discussing the construct they were enslaved by. Spreading information via “fictional” storytelling was, and is, an effective workaround. Sitchin was known to be a 33rd degree Freemason. All secret societies on the planet are tasked with maintaining the energetic stranglehold on humanity. Many suggest he was a counterintelligence agent sent to muddy the water being tread by truth seekers. His work, therefore, is suspect and riddled with inaccuracies intended to deceive…though he did provide some comforting half-truths. I believe one of your early poems serves as an appropriate allegory: The Bittersweets 😉

      2. My early poem? I don’t remember writing a poem by that title. I will be frank about what I think in regards to Sumerian literature and mythology. We don’t need to bring in alien forces and pre-flood highly advanced civilizations to see why so many religious scholars find the texts threatening. They are evidence that the Judeo-Christian religions are products of a very clearly traceable literary evolution. Of course it makes them uncomfortable — and anyone who was brought up to believe in any of those religions. For me, it is enough to read the texts to understand the politics involved in making them known to the world at large, whether we want to take them figuratively, literally, or both. They are, as they are, mines.
