well the suggestion is that the hindu mt. meru, also known as mt. sumeru, was in fact a reference to either enki's or enlil's temples, and not an actual mountain in india but in sumer and not a mountain but a HOLY MOUNTAIN, which is ancient lingo for a holy flying floating etc, temple. i've also researched data on buddha's connection to it all, which suggests he was present at the closing of a gate. this data was from a cave painting depicting the destruction of mt. sumeru, which is depicted as the two pyramidal shapes, one pointing up, the other pointing down. the one pointing down is balanced on top of the other, and gives mt. sumeru the shape of that of an hour glass or a wormhole. i prefer the latter, since the cave painting says that the two parts were broken apart at the smallest point between the two triangular shapes (tne throat of the wormhole) at the death of buddha.
