Over the last few decades, there has been quite a bit of debate over whether such a wormhole is physically possible. The amount of energy to sustain
it, physicists argued, would be too immense and the passageway would collapse on itself in micro-seconds. However, in the last 5 years, the original
arguments have been met with new findings, such as this one, reported in BBC News on April 12, 2000:
According to Sergei Krasnikov of the Pulkovo Observatory in St Petersburg, the new wormhole can create its own abundant supply of exotic matter.
This way, the wormhole would be big enough and could stay open long enough for people to use.
"What's new is that this wormhole actually generates enough to make it arbitrarily large," says Krasnikov who works at the Laboratory of
In 2005, a new argument arose against practical wormhole usage, but was immediately contested:
Calculations by the Oregon researchers show a wormhole that combines exotic matter with semi-classical space-time would be fundamentally
"We aren't saying you can't build a wormhole. But the ones you would like to build - the predictable ones where you can say Mr Spock will land
in New York at 2pm on this day - those look like they will fall apart," Dr Hsu said. [...]
However, there is still support for the idea of traversable wormholes in the scientific community. One physicist told BBC News there could be
problems with Hsu's and Buniy's conclusions. [...]
"Violations of the null energy condition are known to occur in a number of situations. And their argument would prohibit any violation of it,"
the scientist commented. [...]
The underlying physics of wormholes was not in doubt, the researcher argued. The real challenge was in explaining how to engineer wormholes big
enough to be of practical use. 
So, theoretically, the traveller enters one end of the vortex and emerges on the other end. Another way to represent it is like this:
Notice how it's flared at both ends and thinner in the middle, which is called the "throat" of the wormhole (the throat or neck of Tiamat is
usually depicted much shorter in length, but represents the distance between one point and another, or rather, between one star gate and another).
Turned on end, it takes on the characteristic shape of the hourglass, the "As above, so below" symbollism, and the mec tree of the great dragon.
Marduk of babylonian fame, invited the gods to visit him in Babylon, his "Gate of the Gods," as they employed the gates between earth and heaven. It
is believed he was partially quoting earlier stories about the ante-diluvian gods, as he had also absorbed their tales and activities, claiming them
to be his own exploits. It is also believed, per the biblical accounts of the flood, the Tower of Babel, and the bottomless pit of Revelation 9, that
the star gate or bottomless pit entrance at Eridu has been buried for thousands of years. If it has been dug up since then, it isn't likely that the
general public would be made aware of it.
All these ante-diluvian symbols of Anunnaki technology, became religious icons, religious buildings and religious symbols following the flood. The mec
tree or wormhole of the great dragon became the sacred tree on the temple grounds of mesopotamian temples. In essence, the Tree containing the Serpent
in the Garden, had been immortalized on the sacred grounds of the temples of Akkadia and Babylon without the people ever fully realizing its meaning.
The ABZU or star gate, became the primeval waters symbollized in the sacred pools or sacred water receptacles for ritual bathing in temples in the
near and middle east. Enki's floating, speaking and flying palace, called the E.ABZU, became the model for ziggurats, pyramids and earthly thrones of
power. And the hourglass shape, which defined the shape of the dragon, the wormhole and Tiamat, became a symbol for the power of the holy mountain,
the power of the ziggurat and pyramid.
However, of special note is the hourglass symbollism represented by "Mt. Sumeru" or "Mt. Meru," of ancient hindu and buddhist history, which is
depicted as a mountain formed in an hourglass shape. According to the mythology surrounding it, Mt. Sumeru has its roots in hell and its upper reaches
in heaven. Upon the death of Buddha, it is said that Mt. Sumeru was broken in two at the intersection between the two triangles of the hourglass,
breeching the connection between its upper, heavenly levels (the upper, downward pointing triangle) and the earthly levels (the lower, upward pointing
triangle). In effect, the wormhole had been severed at the throat, the dragon Tiamat had been slain, cut off at the neck or cut in half (an event
further elaborated on in the Enuma Elish), the bottomless pit had been rendered useless and buried.
Enki's "star gate", however, was not the only one. In fact, his sumerian brother, "Enlil," also appears to have had his own "Abzu"
"The Heaven-Earth Bond"
In the sumerian city of Nibru (Nippur), Enki's brother Enlil held court. He also had a marvellous construction called the E.KUR, which is depicted in
the sumerian text, "Enlil in the E.KUR." As in the case of Enki's "E.ABZU," the E.KUR was quite an unusual construct. For example:
He has taken up residence in Nibru, the lofty bond between heaven and earth. [...]
The front of the city is laden with terrible fearsomeness and radiance. [...]
Its brickwork is red gold, its foundation is lapis lazuli. [...]
Its interior is a wide sea which knows no horizon.[...]
Its fearsomeness and radiance reach up to heaven, its shadow stretches over all the foreign lands, and its crenellation reaches up to the midst of
In modern terms, this building has several surprising features! It is a bond between heaven and earth. It features a radiant facing or cover, which
reaches up to heaven, like some ancient forcefield. It's made of, or the color of, red gold with a blue foundation. And for the clincher, the inside
of it is a "wide sea which knows no horizon"! That's certainly an interesting way of describing an Abzu star gate - a wide sea which knows no
horizon. Of course it knows no horizon, afterall, it's a star gate not the sea!
To further signify its connection to the Abzu as an underground star gate chamber, consider the following quote from "Enlil in the E.KUR":
Enlil , holy Urac is favoured with beauty for you; you are greatly suited for the Abzu, the holy throne ; you refresh yourself in the deep
underworld, the holy chamber. 
Apparently, the word "Abzu" was used interchangeably for all the subterranean star gate chambers. In fact, this very thing is depicted in ancient
Egypt! Few realize that the ancient egyptian city name of "Abydos" is in fact not an egyptian word at all. It's greek. The egyptian word for it is
"Abdju," pronounced "Abzu", as described by Peter Goodgame in his book, "The Giza Discovery":
One of the first important cult centers for the invaders of Egypt was a place which came to be known by the Greeks as "Abydos." However, the
Egyptian name is better represented as "Abedjou" or "Abdju." The sound "dj" is often simply given as "z," such as in the common rendition for
the Step-Pyramid of Djoser as "Zoser." With this in mind we find that Abydos=Abdju=Abzu, which directly equates with the cult center of Enki known
as the Abzu in Eridu.
As a result of this discovery, the next logical step was determining where the subterranean star gate chamber was in ancient Abydos (Abzu), Egypt. And
one need not look far to find it. It's called the "Osirieon" and its archaeological history, since its discovery, has been shrouded and emersed in
controversy (as you can well imagine!). Afterall, "Abzu" was a sumerian concept and word, and yet here it is in one of the earliest cult cities of
Anyway, we find that Enlil was also in possession of a star gate and an Abzu chamber to put it in. The name of his chamber and star gate, however, was
not simply Abzu, it was additionally called the "Dur.Anki", the "Heaven-Earth Bond." It also spread its shadows across the heavens, across the
foreign lands. It also reached up to heaven from beneath the earth, as is indicated in its name as the "heaven-earth bond", also known as the bond
of the universe (heaven and earth).
The argument that the heaven-earth bond was simply a reference to the E.KUR being high enough from which to observe the heavens, is rather weak in the
face of the surrounding evidence, such as the mountain ranges and cliffs in the vicinity of Enlil's E.KUR. Certainly any nearby mountain would be
much closer to "heaven" than a ziggurat construction. As a result, I find such arguments sorely lacking in validity in the face of the data
regarding the terrain and the geographical setting of this ancient structure. In short, the heaven-earth bond, is simply that, a bond of some sort
between heaven and earth! In fact, it harkens back to the opening concept of "As above, so below." Remember, Mt. Sumeru of the ancient hindu and
buddhist texts, which was likely named after the E.ABZU or E.KUR of Sumer, was a connection between the depths of the Earth and the heighths of the
heavens - clearly indicating it to be some kind of portal of travel.
