can't remember at the moment
but is sumeru associated with the World-axis as meru is? [churning of the Soma]
that would pretty much clinch it nice spotting that

yeah but i don't think it means what you think it means.
(churning of the soma that is). i read this lengthy book by a gentleman who thinks the churn is the precession of the equinoxes. my theory differs
from his quite a bit. i think it's the same thing as tiamat, the chaotic water (and it depicts it in their old art as a whirlpool), and that tiamat
the chaos water (dragon), is a part of the abzu (the abyss), and the abyss, is the bottomless pit of the bible, and even the lake of fire (i think
they mistranslated it and originally it would've read more like glowing water, translators just didn't have a word for it at the time, that would fit
it better (ancient egyptians also have a lake of fire reference, and images of it prove it isn't literal fire).
and that there was a super fast cram session of my theories on how mount meru/mount sumeru, is connected to ancient sumer and biblical eden.
if you want to read an odd discussion on the topic of eden, see this really old thread i created and spent most of my time arguing with a former
member of ATS, as the meaning of E.DEN and if it was the same as E.DIN.
