The Beginning - Pt.04

“In the one hundred and twentieth Shar was the Deluge awaited. In the tenth Shar in the life age of Ziusudra was the Deluge forthcoming.”

That would place the flood 432,000 years after their arrival. Scholars generally agree that the Great Flood occurred around 11,000 BC, which would place the arrival of the Anunnaki on Earth some 443,000 years ago. It is important to keep track of the time references because they play a crucial role in supporting many of the activities and developments of human origins and the creation of the first humans, Adam and Eve some 200,000 years ago. There was however a very good reason why the ancient astronauts arrived here, it was not just some random decision of a bunch of distant astronauts. After what is described as a fierce battle on Nibiru between an appointed king and a successor by birth, a truce was called.

“The nation of the north against the nation of the south took up arms… A war long and fierce engulfed the planet… there was death and destruction both north and south… for many circuits desolation reigned the land; all life was diminished.”

A time of unification, rebuilding and peace followed, where great cities and developments engulfed the planet of Nibiru. There is a vivid description of Nibiru’s atmosphere, explaining how the volcanoes constantly feed the thick atmosphere which protects them against the sun when at its closest point “… hot period it shields Nibiru from the Sun’s scorching rays… “ and “…in the cold period the inner heat of Nibiru it keeps about the planet like a warm coat…” We must remember that the planet moves away far from the sun for longer periods than when it is closer to the sun, it therefore needs a much denser protective layer to sustain a temperate climate for life. Not much different from our own atmosphere but seemingly much thicker and more active. The planet is described as a “radiant” planet with a “reddish hue”. “A red planet, reddish in radiance; around the sun an elongated circuit Nibiru makes.” While some planets absorb heat and energy, others radiate heat. Nibiru is such a planet. That is why it can seemingly survive the long periods in deep space, before returning closer to the sun every 3000 years or so. It may take Nibiru as long as 600 years to orbit the sun in close proximity, as it makes its way out into deep space just like a comet.

But Nibiru was a troubled planet, it’s atmosphere was disturbed by some cosmic force, which began to have a devastating effect on the lands, animals and people. The hardship hit everyone and started threatening the peace. The harsh rays of the sun were destroying crops and arable land, making large parts uninhabitable. Nothing new to us on Earth in the 21st century? “In the atmosphere a breaching has occurred… Nibiru’s air has thinner been made, the protective shield has been diminished.”

They tried all kinds of remedies to cure the growing gaping hole in their atmosphere with little success. “In the land strife was abundant, food and water were not… in the land unity was gone; accusations were abundant.” We can also relate to the accusations and lack of unity in our own time, when we compare the way in which the world is disagreeing on the many issues threatening the environment, greenhouse effect and ozone depletion. Once again we stare bluntly at the hereditary characteristics which were passed down to us by the Anunnaki. “Rains were withheld, winds blew harder; springs from the depths did not arise.”

They called a council meeting and under the advice of some bright scientists, reached a decision to use gold in a fine powder form to be dispersed into the atmosphere and patch up the hole. “… to use a metal, gold was its name. On Nibiru it was rare; within the Hammered Bracelet it was abundant.”

It’s important to note that they called the asteroid belt outside of Mars, the “Hammered Bracelet”. It was known to them from the descriptions in the Enuma Elish or the Epic of Creation that there was gold embedded in the many fragments of the asteroid belt. But would they be able to retrieve it? I trust that in years to come we will rediscover the rich gold deposits on the asteroid belt which the Anunnaki knew about 500,000 years ago.

“It was the only substance that in the finest powder could be ground; lofted high to heaven, suspended it could remain.” So while they sent out space ships to obtain the gold, they also tried to activate the dormant volcanoes to start “belching” again. “With missiles the volcanoes to attack, their dormancy to bestir, their belching to increase.” But neither of these attempts worked while the planet was slowly slipping into an environmental disaster. The king of the time was weak with little skill to make weighty decisions. Unhappiness and opposition grew against him until he was overthrown by Alalu, who took the throne. It was then discovered that Alalu was actually the successor by law, because he was the son of the prior king and his concubine half-sister. This is incidentally where the Biblical succession laws were also derived from. The child of a man and his half-sister was first in line as successor, not the child of a man and his unrelated bride. We will see how the Anunnaki applied this rule on Earth and passed it onto the Hebrews, Egyptians and other civilizations. But before Alalu’s reign could be ordained, a young prince by the name of Anu presented himself, claiming that he was the direct descendant of the great king An. They studied his ancestry and came to the conclusion that he was a pure descendant of An, and therefore by their laws of seed and succession Anu should be king. After some more deliberation, it was finally decided that Alalu would remain king and Anu would be his ‘cup bearer’, in the interest of peace and stability. This was also a very early example of a coalition parliament.

“Let us live in peace, together Nibiru to abundance return. Let me keep the throne, let you keep the succession” said Alalu to Anu, and “in this manner Alalu on the throne remained seated.”

One of his first tasks was to find gold in the ‘Hammered Bracelet’ so he dispatched “celestial boats to seek the gold” but space can be a cruel place, and the mission was a huge disaster. All the space ships which were dispatched on a discovery mission were destroyed by the asteroids. “By the Hammered Bracelet the boats were crushed…” After nine Shars on the throne and very little progress in the relief of the planet, Alalu was challenged by Anu. As advanced as the Nibiruans may have been in technology, they certainly had some interesting customs. The ritual was that the two opponents had to meet each other in hand-to-hand combat, all naked. That is the way it was written some 4500 years ago, and also where the Greeks obtained some of their cultural influences.

“In the ninth Shar Anu gave battle to Alalu. To hand-to-hand combat, with bodies naked, Alalu he challenged… They grappled with each other in the public square…” As fate had it, Anu defeated Alalu and replaced him on the throne of Nibiru. He had great plans on how to save the planet’s atmosphere from further destruction. Alalu was obviously distraught by the events so he planned a dramatic act to somehow show his supremacy over Anu. He ‘stole’ one of the advanced space ships and flew out towards the Hammered Bracelet. “… to the place of celestial chariots he hurriedly went… into a missile throwing chariot Alalu climbed… the commander’s seat he occupied… That-which-shows-the-way he lit up… the fire stones he stirred up; their hum like music was… Unbeknown to others, in the celestial boat Alalu from Nibiru escaped.”

His escape was like a final attempt to show that he was smarter, or worthy of getting some sort of hold over the people of Nibiru, and by some strange twist of fortune, he achieved just that. He set his course for Earth, expecting to find gold there. But how would he have known that Earth had an abundance of gold? Once more we find amazingly sobering information in many of the tablets, with special reference to the Enuma Elish or Epic of Creation, well-known to historians. It is described in great detail as a “celestial battle” between gods. In reality it was an observation from the planet Nibiru, of how a great celestial collision between planets and moons occurred in the past. This could have only been witnessed on one of Nibiru’s close encounters when crossing the paths of other planets while rounding the sun. For the sake of brevity, I will keep this part of the story short, but you can get a detailed outline in the Epic of Creation.

This is a story that was written and captured in great detail on clay tablets. The observations are such, that it could only have happened by observing the events from the planet Nibiru, which was at the center of the collisions, but did not actually collide with anything. Many millions of years ago, there was Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Tiamat, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Nibiru, which came into contact with the other planets every 3600 years. That is why the Sumerians called it the “planet of the crossing” as it crossed the paths of most of the other planets. Tiamat was a big planet, several times the size of Earth, orbiting where the asteroid belt is today. On one of her fateful orbits, Nibiru came very close to Tiamat, so close that their moons actually engaged in several dramatic cosmic collisions. The book describes these very dramatically, so that it almost reads like a Greek tragedy, and for those reasons it has been misinterpreted by many historians and astronomers. A large body of scholars now realize that it actually describes the cosmic collisions between Tiamat and her 11 moons, with Nibiru. From the transcripts we learn that Nibiru had seven moons, which “attacked” the helpless Tiamat, ripping into her belly, shattering her body, and splitting her in two. “… into two parts he split her, her chest from her lower parts he separated.”

The outcome of this ‘EPIC’ was that as the moons pounded the planet, the observers could actually see the many compounds she was hiding. One of the most abundant metals present was gold. “Her inner channels he cut apart her golden veins he beheld with wonder.” These were the collisions on the way towards the sun, and it continued as Nibiru returned on its way back. As one of the big moons which the tablets call ”North Wind” smashed into Tiamat, it dislodged the top half of the planet which went flying into space towards the sun. Kingu, which was one of Tiamat’s moons, followed the giant piece of the planet because of its momentum, before the large piece settled in its own orbit beyond Mars, capturing the smaller Kingu for ever as its moon. This is the price Kingu had to pay for its destructive power, the tables tell us. “Nibiru’s Wind upon Tiamat then hovered, sweeping upon her gushing waters… In brilliance was Tiamat’s upper part to a region unknown carried. With her the bound Kingu was also exiled, of the severed part a companion to be.”

The rest of the planet Tiamat was destroyed and smashed into pieces which became known as the asteroid belt, or Hammered Bracelet, by the Sumerians. “With his mace the hinder part he smashed to bits and pieces, then strung them together as a band to form a Hammered Bracelet.”

The other large piece and its new over-sized moon which were now in collective orbit around the sun, became known as the Earth and its moon. The Anunnaki through the Sumerian tablets continued to refer to the moon as Kingu for ever. During these collisions, there was a lot of transfer of material and ‘seeds of life’ between all the bodies, which explains why Earth inherited much of the same life forms as Nibiru. It also became visible that the new planet Earth was rich in gold as were the fragments of the asteroid belt. Furthermore it answers the puzzling question of why Earth’s moon is so large, and why the Anunnaki knew about the gold on Earth. As time went by Earth stabilized through gravitational and centrifugal forces, allowing life to develop and flourish. By the time the crisis on Nibiru started affecting the planet, life was well evolved on Earth, but more importantly, the Nibiruans knew that Earth was rich in gold. This is why Alalu set his course for the planet behind the Hammered Bracelet. They had never managed to travel through the asteroid belt before, and from the tablets we gather that it was a very dangerous affair. As we described earlier, none of the space ships which were sent to find gold there, returned. Alalu knew that if he found the precious metal on Earth, he could almost hold Nibiru to ransom and make a number of demands. He would be seen as the savior of his home planet. Alalu’s journey is described so vividly that even 5000 years later, one can visualize the imagery described in the clay tablets. I should remind you that Sumerian tablets often refer to acquiring their knowledge and information from other sources from ‘prior times’ many thousands of years before the tablets were actually inscribed. We do not know whether the stories were transferred orally or if they were captured in some other way, but the amount of information and detail is too complex to have been a mere oral tradition.

“Riding like an eagle, Alalu the heavens scanned; below, Nibiru was a ball in a void-less hanging… He looked again, Nibiru’s great ball turned into a small fruit… The next time he looked, in the wide dark sea Nibiru disappeared.”
