"You have thrown into confusion those threads which have been ordered..
You organize those threads which bring confusion.
Inanna, you have destroyed what should not have been destroyed,
You have made what should not have been made."
" Inanna-Ishtar was a paradox; that is, she embodied with herself polarities and contraries, and thereby she transcended them. She was, to put it somewhat differently, a deity who incorporated fundamental and irreducible paradoxes. She represented both order and disorder, structure and anti-structure. In her psychological traits and behavior she confounded and confused normative categories and boundaries
Inanna as a definitively ambiguous character who "belongs to more than one domain at a time and will not fix [her] identity in any one member of this set of domains. [She] is both this and that."
Inanna as a mediator between the domains, Heaven, the mundane world and the netherworld
"[n her own person she] attests to the coincidentia oppositorum that challenge the hierarchies and rules of the public masculine world, reintroducing into it confusions, conflicts, tensions, and ambiguities, insisting always on the more complex nature of life than masculine aspirations would allow."
"Inanna-Ishtar is both male and female. Over and over the texts juxtapose the masculine and feminine traits and behavior of the goddess. She can be bother compassionate, supportive, and nurturing and assertive, aggressive and strong-willed. In short, she breaks the boundaries between the sexes by embodying both femaleness and maleness
...the androgyny of Inanna also manifests itself in the transvestitism of her cult personnel and adds "Mesopotamians believed that the transforming of men into women and women into men through the frightening power of the goddess was done "in order to teach the people religious fear."
" Inanna-Ishtar shatters the boundaries that differentiate the species, those between divine and human, divine and animal, human and animal.
"The Strange opacity of certain empirical events, the dumb senselessness of intense or inexorable pain, and the enigmatic unaccountability of gross iniquity all raise the uncomfortable suspicion that perhaps the world, and hence man's life in the world, has no genuine order at all - no empirical regularity, no form, no moral coherence.
The heavens are mine and the earth is mine: I am heroic! In Unug the E-ana is mine, in Zabalam the Giguna is mine, in Nibru the Dur-an-ki is mine, in Urim the E-Dilmuna is mine, in Ĝirsu the Ešdam-kug is mine, in Adab the E-šara is mine, in Kiš the Ḫursaĝ-kalama is mine, in Kisiga the Amaš-kuga is mine, in Akšak the Anzagar is mine, in Umma the Ibgal is mine, in Agade the Ulmaš is mine. Which god compares with me?
42-45. (Inana speaks "Maybe it will muddy the waters, and will leave gigantic cowpats -- but let my father give me the Bull of Heaven, so I can kill the lord, so I can kill the lord, so I can kill the lord, Lord Gilgameš!"
46-49. Great An replied to holy Inana: "My child, the Bull of Heaven would not have any pasture, as its pasture is on the horizon. Maiden Inana, the Bull of Heaven can only graze where the sun rises. So I cannot give the Bull of Heaven to you!"
50-51. Holy Inana replied to him: "I shall shout, and make my voice reach heaven and earth!"
52-54. [He was frightened, he was frightened. [(1 ms. adds here …… was frightened of Inana.] Great An replied to holy Inana: "I shall give her the Bull of Heaven."]

Many Biblical scholars and theologians point out that although Rome was the prevailing pagan power in the 1st century when the Book of Revelation was written, the symbolism of the whore of Babylon refers not to an invading infidel of foreign power, but to an apostate false queen, a former "bride" who has been unfaithful and who, even though she has been divorced and cast out because of unfaithfulness, continues to falsely claim to be the "queen" of the spiritual realm
King Ahasuerus held a 180-day feast in Susa (Shoushan). While in "high spirits" from the wine, he ordered his queen, Vashti, to appear before him and his guests to display her beauty. But when the attendants delivered the king's command to Queen Vashti, she refused to come. Furious at her refusal to obey, the king asked his wise men what should be done. One of them said that all the women in the empire would hear that "The King Xerxes commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not." Then the women of the empire would despise their husbands. And this would cause many problems in the kingdom. Therefore it would be good to depose her
;An alternative view is that Esther is derived from the theonym Ishtar. The Book of Daniel provides accounts of Jews in exile being assigned names relating to Babylonian gods and "Mordecai" is understood to mean servant of Marduk, a Babylonian god. "Esther" may have been a different Hebrew interpretation from the Proto-Semitic root "*?aθtar- 'morning/evening star'", which descended with the /th/ into the Ugaritic Athtiratu and Arabian Athtar.
Thus says Yahweh to his anointed, to Cyrus, whom he has taken by his right hand to subdue nations before him and strip the loins of kings, to force gateways before him that their gates be closed no more: I will go before you levelling the heights. I will shatter the bronze gateways, smash the iron bars. I will give you the hidden treasures, the secret hoards, that you may know that I am Yahweh.
Isaiah, in Isaiah 45: 1-3
I am Cyrus, king of the world, great king, mighty king, king of Babylon, king of Sumer and Akkad, king of the four quarters, the son of Cambyses, great king, king of Anšan, grandson of Cyrus, great king, king of Anšan, descendant of Teispes, great king, king of Anšan, of an eternal line of kingship, whose rule Bêl and Nabu love, whose kingship they desire fot their hearts' pleasure. When I entered Babylon in a peaceful manner, I took up my lordly abode in the royal palace amidst rejoicing and happiness. Marduk, the great lord, established as his fate for me a magnanimous heart of one who loves Babylon, and I daily attended to his worship."
36 Songs to her are sweet, it is great to honour her.
37 the Queen-of-Nippur, she is lofty and she is queen,
38 Songs to her are sweet, it is great to honour her.
39 Who is so honoured as the Queen of Nippur, their deity?
40 The Igigi have proclaimed her seven names.

Some of them are here, some are musicians and other walks of life. For example, had an experience looking in the eyes of a muscian and knew he was a goddess of old, and that is why some healing occurred for me out of his song, for there was a connection my soul recognizing her, but I also didn't have the actual name, its like the memory veil lifts, and info starts pourign out and then bang, the floodgates close, don't get the details I wanted, but every time I see, I'm looking at him/her, am aware its someone my soul knows but I'm supposed to name.edit on 8-4-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)

I don't think she's a trickster at all. What think has happened is quite a battle, not all fighting, some of it was letting go, so as not to lower frequency, and being defeated or leaving. But are a lot of demiurge dark hat type ETs and Entities controlling earth and the Good/Equality side, that all ended. Then we have some of Freedom and Loving Light Workers being demonized and contorted. Lesser negative beings take on persona's and names that are similar, they're the tricksters. So its best not to get into this beyond the God/Goodness/Good Family, Love/Peace true Higher Ups and have faith in Love, for its the winning side beyond this illusion.edit on 8-4-2013 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)
