After she had mixed the clay,
she called the Anunnaki, the great gods.
The Igigi, the great gods, cast their spittle on the clay.
These different principles, although not as neatly as presented here, manifest themselves in the terms lugal (dynastic) and en (non-dynastic), respectively, and can seemingly be found among the rulers of the Early Dynastic period who are usually, but not always, referred to as en and in the kings of Akkad who called themselves lugal
To see how the Old Babylonians beneﬁ ted from what for us would
be confusion, and to see the bearing it has on the Pythagorean Insight,
look at how they dealt with problems of what they called igi and
igi- bi: numbers and their ‘reciprocals’.
IGIGI = Those Who See and Observe
He of the cuba jewels, he of the cuba jewels is indeed ploughing with the cuba jewels! Ama-ucumgal-ana, he of the cuba jewels, is indeed ploughing with the cuba jewels!
He lays down like seeds the little jewels among his jewels. Ploughing with the jewels, ploughing with the jewels, for whom is he ploughing? Ama-ucumgal-ana, ploughing with the jewels, for whom is he ploughing?
The beard of the one whom he will create for me, the one whom he will create for me, is of lapis-lazuli
Ninsinina being a dispensary of procedural medical knowledge might make sense like that too. It would be as though "She" were a civilizing technology that resulted in cities and the ways that human beings organize themselves around cities, versus, say, pastoral nomads. There would have to be "code" for all sorts of municipal services, including sanitation.
Seems to me that once you go "city" you can never go back; at least not without some catastrophe. So building and supporting the city would become "life itself". I could see then how Ninsinina could come to be seen as an all giving cornucopic cow; she would be the font of everything that would allow a city to survive, she would be the city; of Ur, likely, as I am starting to dig in to this.
