I was thinking about all this business of Kings and where it started.
As most people observe, they (the various Kings of the world) share the same symbolism. And as we observe, Kingship is passed down through Kinship.
So where did it all start?
According to Wikipedia (ok great, now all our wisdom depends on Wikipedia..) the first king was the Sumerian King Alulim. He supposedly ruled for 8
Sars. 1 Sar of course being 3600 years, so he lived for 28,800 years between 35th and 30th century BC.
"After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years."
So supposedly this information comes from actual Sumerian tablets.
The following extant ancient sources contain the Sumerian King List, or fragments:
Dynastic Chronicle (ABC 18) including copies, K 11261+ and K 12054
Kish Tablet (Scheil dynastic tablet)
UCBC 9-1819 ("California Tablet")
WB 444 (Weld-Blundell Prism) 
The first two sources (WB) are a part of the "Weld-Blundell collection", donated by Herbert Weld Blundell to the Ashmolean Museum. WB 62 is a small
clay tablet, inscribed only on .."
So looking into the history of documented large scale wars - there is always some King and his empire involved which made me wonder ...
Is war, for the most part, the result of the Sumerian mindset of war and empire building, that came to our planet?
If this is the case, man ... well it is very unfortunate for us.
('Us' referring to the natives of this planet.. not sure I am, but supposedly many of those reading this is the - 'them'.)
Not that I believe this for certain, but it is an interesting concept.
One question that comes to mind is - if the Earth was not ever visited by this Sumerian race, would there be as much war, violence and empire building
as there has been? (If this be the case..) One has to wonder what the world would be like if the Sumerians had not come..
It seems that looking at documented history, large scale war is centered around the activity of these so called kings. Has the mindset of conquest and
war of the Sumerian race influenced the native human population?
Not all modern civilization has submit into the mindset of war and conquest. The Indus Valley Civilization for example lasted for thousands of years
with no signs of war, conquest or Kingship attested by the archeology of the region.
