According to the sumerian text, "Enki and Ninmah," when Enki creates the lulu (the first human slaves), he does so by pinching off clay from the top
of the Abzu (the gate), which is then placed in the 7 birth goddesses. This is very heavy symbollism, I believe. It may even be a metaphor for the
Stargate chevrons, and may also explain why ancient ritual became entangled with the concept that a portal was opened when a female and a male
copulate (thusly why L. Ron Hubbard and Jack Parsons thought they could, threw magic ritual and sexual intercourse, bring forth a being from another
dimension. In fact, if you look at the drawing of Aleister Crowley's "Lam" you can see it is simply the head of a penis and a woman's *ahem*
womanhood, engaged in coitus. They were confused about the symbols. the ritual is based on an incorrect translation of the ancient texts, that were
themselves partially or deliberately translated as a hybrid of literal and metaphorical symbols, if my theories are right).
So let's consider the gate from the movie and TV series:
It has approximately 7 chevrons, which may be symbollized in "Enki and Ninmah," as the "7 birth goddesses", due to the appearance of the chevron
and the act of coitus. The chevron:
Ritualists, assumed it was symbollizing coitus and employed the concept in their magic ceremonies.
And their argument does have its rationale. So to differentiate and disentangled the concepts from each other, it is necessary to find associated
metaphors in other texts, that further explain what is being advanced in the creation story: Enki and Ninmah. Otherwise, the idea the gate was
nothing more than a magic sex ritual, wins due to lack of evidence to the contrary.
So let's consider the Abzu. The Abzu was a watery gate, the Abyss, the Nun, a special chamber that went to a special place, in fact, to several
special places like somewhere in the Great Square of Pegasus, and somewhere in the Pleiades and the horns of Taurus, and to Anu's ship as it
circumnavigated the globe, just to name a few. It was also a gate from which the gods were born. in many respects, it does seem to lend itself,
symbollically, to the womb. But I suggest that the similarity is only a coincedence, and that the post flood scribes, in the absence of evidence to
the contrary, found the coincedence to be convincing enough that they ran with it.
However, the Abzu was not the womb. It was a device from which the gods, arrived and left Earth. Enki arrived here, from the Abzu. His ship/city
rose up out of the Abzu. Unless he and his ship/city were the size of a newborn, the Abzu was not the womb. Therefore, the clay being pinched off
the top of the Abzu and placed in the 7 birth goddesses is not a representation of sexual intercourse with 7 birth goddesses. the 7 birth goddesses
were the gates, and perhaps even more precisely, the 7 chevrons of the gates. Someone assumed, long ago, that the chevron symbols were
representations of coitus. I don't see how that's possible given the rest of the evidence. The ideas have to fit together as an integrated whole,
and if they don't, then you're on the wrong track.
Therefore, I submit to you (theoretically) that the story of "Enki and Ninmah" in which Enki supposedly creates the lulu (the first human slaves),
is in fact, the story of how humans were brought to Earth as slaves, via the gate systems. Yes, just like in the movie and TV show.
