reposting this on the new page:
the above ties directly into a theory that was initially inspired by two things:
1. A theory that the gates of Eden were stargates.
2. A photograph of a space colony that Zorgon had sent me, shown inroute between one planet and another, complete with geodesic domes for gardens. I
believe he sent in as regards Noah's ark and the concept of a spaceworthy "garden", what i got out of it was slightly different.
For example, I had connected what I thought were rather interesting dots between Enki's Abzu gate, Enlil's Abzu gate, Gilgamesh's Gates of
Paradise, and the biblical Gates of Eden. They all had the same things in common:
1. Each set of gates was guarded by a pair of beings of unique description. In the biblical instance they were called "cherubim".
2 In the Gilgamesh account, it was "Scorpion Men."
3 In the Enki account, it doesn't state who or what they are, only depicts them as tall beings with long staffs with rings dangling off them and hair
with some kind of circular decorative or other embellishment meant to depict almost anything, really.
4 In the Enlil account, there was no description or artwork depicting the gates (or the heaven-earth bound), although it does say it is like a wide
sea that knows no horizon.
Breaking it down further,
1 I noted the "flaming swords of the cherubim" which went back and forth around the gates of Eden, so entry could not be gained to Eden.
2 This seemed to be suggested in the Enki depiction by the rings dangling off the long staffs, which could've been meant to emulate glowing,
pulsating, fiery, that kinda thing.
3 The Gilgamesh scorpion men were described as having eyes that emitted power of some kind, that could strike a man dead, and over the entire gate
structure was some kind of forcefield that apparently blocked the (the flaming swords of the cherubim?) gates.
So running with this concept, I tried to decide what might be at the other end of these gates, that the humans were not allowed entry to, and if it
was consistently the same concept, across the board.
1 in the Eden example, the humans were barred from accessing the gates to Eden. No mention is made of any other beings using the gates of Eden, except
for when humans are kicked out of Eden, via the gates.
2 In the Gilgamesh example, the humans were barred from accessing the gates to Paradise but demi-gods such as Gilgamesh, could use them, or humans
turned immortal could use them.
3 In the Enki example, there's no mention of humans being blocked from accessing the gates, although there is mention in some texts that use of these
gates by humans constitues a one way journey -no return is possible.
4 In the Enlil example, there's mention of the gates leading to the courtyard of "An" or "Anu". somewhere in the heavens, and a journey is made
threw it by Adapa, who is suggested to be a human. He is sent there for the purposes of dining with the Anuna and An, and is given instructions by
Enki, prior to going, to not eat or drink anything that is offered to him. Little does he know, that if he eats or drinks these things, he will gain
immortality as this meal is a meal of the gods, a meal that induces immortality and is being offered to him as a reward for something good he's
supposedly done. (this is one of the stories where Enki is the bad guy, apparently, and is like a reverse coin of "don't eat the fruit of the
knowledge of good and evil" story, with the opposite results of immortality gained instead of immortality lost, but which ends up with the same
result -immortality lost, when, following Enki's instructions, Adapa doesn't eat or drink the immortal meal and loses the chance to be immortal -
Tree of Life reference, no doubt). It's believed Adapa may have been another name for Adam. However, in this case, Adapa is allowed to return threw
the gate, breaking comparison with the other examples where the gate is one way only for humans. Apparently, part of the story that explains this
abnormality is either obscured, undefined or missing.
Taking this information, I arranged a total picture of what is at the other end of the Gates of Eden/Paradise/Anu/Abzu
A. A courtyard (garden??)
B. A Paradise garden where the trees grow crystals instead of fruit
C. Eden garden, where the trees grow food that causes you to live forever and gain knowledge of good and evil
D. A room capable of supporting a dinner table, chairs of some sort, bowls and other items for eating immortal food and immortal drinks.
E. A horrible place, a fortress of death and torment, where entry is gained only after being stripped of clothing (mentioned in Inana's journey to
the underworld story)
Also, taking this information, I arranged a total picture of who is at the other end of the Gates of Eden/Paradise/Anu/Abzu
A. Courtyard example, Anuna and Anu. the gods.
B. Paradise example, Noah figure
C. Eden example, God, the Serpent, the Adam and the Eve, various animals
D. Underworld example, Evil Lady of Death and Torture and her minions, Inana and her husband, lots of dead and dying and partially decayed people,
some hung on hooks. And more Anuna.
After finding the examples of each instance, the next thing was to determine where the gates lead to besides the immediate descriptions. Did they go
anywhere on the planet or what?
1. In the Courtyard example, it was in the heavens.
2. In the Paradise example, it was at the end of a long journey through a totally black tunnel.
3. In the Eden example, there's no reference only that the trip between Eden and the new life outside Eden appeared to be instanteous and through a
gate. The description of how the travel was done, is not mentioned, either for brevity sake, omitted or stricken from oral/written record.
4. In the underworld example, the trip is through seven gates to some other place called the land of no return and the house of death, etc.
There is one more example, but it's not very clear in my mind at the moment, but the trip involved some guy who decided he wanted to do the wild
thang with one of the goddesses and he took the series of gates to see her. It isn't clear in my mind atm whether it was a physical gate or one of
these heavenly or underworld gate examples.
Anyway, while reading a non-fiction work about the usage of imagery depicting the precession of the equinoxes in ancient times and artworks, I came
upon a picture that was supposedly rescued from a babylonian dig of an ancient babylonian library. In the image, is a set of constellations (this will
make sense in a minute). Each constellation is named and depicts drawings of the constellations in question. The most noteworthy constellation is
called "I-Iku" which is the Great Square of Pegasus. It was used as the standard "field" measurement by the Sumerians and referred to as the
Paradise by one of the babylonian researchers. It was here that my attention was drawn to the idea that Enki's Abzu was connected to the "Field
Constellation" in the text "Enki and the World Order," which I considered a possible connection to this babylonian "I-Iku". Further verification
was suggested when it was revealed the Fish constellations represented the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, but in the sky, instead of on land. So what I
was looking at was a star map of the ground around Enki's E.Abzu and Abzu on earth, but in this case, in the sky. Was it possible I was seeing the
exact or near exact location in the sky to which the Abzu gate connected? It was beginning to look that way. The final piece of the puzzle was in the
form of the Sphinx/Cherub (the guardians of the ziggurats and pyramids and gates).
Here's the two star charts that lead to this entire chain of thought

i said all that to say this:
It dawned on me that perhaps we were never from earth, and this explains why the fossil remains are inconsistent with homo sapiens. That maybe, just
maybe, our Eden was at the other end of a star gate. We went with Enki, who just happened to be hanging in our Eden, and he convinced us to make the
journey threw the gate to Earth, at which point, we were stuck here as its a one way journey for humans. It was a theory that had some
I don't think evolution is as set in stone as some would like us to believe. Although this theory goes way out into the realm of scifi, I do think it
bears some consideration given all the other clues and hints dropped in ancient texts.
