A New Colony :
Readers by now have had more than a taste of the characters of those who waged the war that transformed our solar system, Ti-ama-te, and our planet Uraš, and the events leading up to the new situation have been mentioned. But we should take a moment here to review and sum up.
In our region of the Milky Way Galaxy, and in the constellations mentioned on these pages, at least, there exist some civilizations -- designated Kadištu -- with the genetic makeup, the orientation, and the training/experience to support the aims and programs of what Parks calls The Source. Generally when Parks uses the words God and the gods, he is actually referring to imposters; it is important to remain aware of this.
What the aims and programs are, is not made clear, but the development of life forms through genetics seems to be a most important part. Because of this, Parks often refers to the Kadištu as Planificateurs and Planificatrices. These French words are normally translated into English as planners. However, in view of what they do in Parks' story, I with a bit of license translate as Life Designers, intended as a message to the advocates of Intelligent Design.
This solar system, Ti-ama-te, had been a primary Kadištu base, under the guidance of the extraordinary multi-dimensional Namlú'u primordial humans who had been developed here. The system was named after Tiamata, the Ušumgal queen of the Gina'abul of Margíd'da, who was the one most responsible for it.
Tiamata was definitely of Kadištu orientation, as were Nammu and Sa'am.
Other Kadištu races were here: the female Gina'abul known as Amašutum, the Ama'argi based in the Abzu of Uraš, the Urmah and the Imdugud.
Definitely opposed to the Kadištu, and also here, were royal Kingú-Babbar and related races, and on occasion Ušumgal. It's important to note that the Kingú-Babbar were (are?) violent enemies of the Ušumgal.
When Tiamata learned, via Nammu and Sa'am, that An and the other Ušumgal lords were developing the warrior Anunna race and the much despised Mušgir for purposes of conquest, she immediately prepared to wage war, against the advice of the higher Kadištu councils. This act was out of character for a Kadištu, but anyway this was her choice.
Tiamata quickly found an ally in the Kingú, and together they virtually annihilated An's Anunna forces in a single "day", but An and his close relatives, and a number of Anunna and Mušgir, escaped the main battles and came to Ti-ama-te, where they overcame the Kingú who were based here.
During that brief war, Sa'am and his party were also under attack by the Kingú, to whom their Kadištu status meant nothing or less. So Sa'am and his associates, and also about 300 surviving members of the Nungal Kadištu race that Sa'am had developed, fled here also. In the process of escaping here, Sa'am's creation Enlíl managed to isolate and chase Tiamata here too, and at a certain point in time not long after that, they destroyed Tiamata and all of her forces that had come with her.
In that moment, the Namlú'u departed... as they had told Sa'am earlier that they would. They had foreseen all of this.
While the most powerful Kadištu had withdrawn, the larger Kadištu community outside Ti-ama-te remained of course intact, and now set up a sort of quarantine... you know, the one we live under today.
Sa'am and his party had not taken part in the war. They had, one might say, dallied among the Ama'argi and done some genetic work, but suddenly reality came to them.
For having been allied with Tiamata and thus indirectly the Kingú, they could almost be seen as enemies of the Ušumgal local victors. They, the Ama'argi, and the Amašutum, were all trapped here with the powerful Ušumgal clearly about to take over the rule of the solar system. They needed to decide on some sort of strategy, and quickly.
Hudili's Address :
Hudili (the senior Nungal and Sa'am/Enki's faithful "right arm") addresses an emergency council of the Ama'argi, from the height of his imposing stature and in a piercing voice:
The victorious army can never exploit the Amašutum of Uraš without risking their total isolation from the rest of this universe.
Uraš is clearly no longer under the protection of the Kadištu, but it is always under their benevolent vigilance. The allies of the Source never completely abandon a place on which they have worked.
This is what we have learned, we, Nungal, when we were with the Sukkal.
You doubtless know why Tiamata had placed us in the hands of this race of Life Designers. The Sukkal are allied with the Urmah. The Imdugud come from the Urmah and Kingú-Babbar. Today, all of you present here in this Assembly are undoubtedly thinking that our metamorphosis has moved us closer to the Kingú-Babbar, but we, Nungal, are more Imdugud in our body and Sukkal in our heart.
With hindsight, and after all these events, I ask myself at what point Tiamata knew our secret affiliation. We were created by the very holy Enki and Nammu to whom we render eternal gratitude. We slept in some part in the depths of the genetic patrimony reserve in Nalulkára. Nammu-Damkina and Enki have awakened us forever. We are the worthy inheritors of the Kadištu knowledge.
We are but approximately 300 survivors, but we will do all that is in our power to protect you and to maintain peace. Tiamata has judged that this peace was endangered by the obvious designs of the Ušumgal. Let us render homage to our queen who is engaged in an absurd war, but who is devoted to preserving the premier mission of the Amašutum, that of maintaining peace in the heart of the Gina'abul.
Wherever she may be, let us render to her our eternal thanks.
Sé'et called for calm, in respect for Tiamata. And the assembly stood in silence.
Then, Hudili concluded energetically:
When we go to meet the Ušumgal and their Anunna warriors, we will present to them the jewel of this planet. We will show them a Namlú'u. They will not be able to disavow the work of the Kadištu. The army of Ubšu'ukinna (Maïa in the Pleiades) will not unfurl its ensign of victory on Uraš.
In the name of life, we will all see this together!
The Jewish traditions found in the rabbinical exegesis, itself traced from Mesopotamian and Egyptian beliefs, explain that
"The abyss named Tehom (taken from Tiamat(a)) raised itself and threatened to submerge the work of God. But in his chariot of fire (sic), God rode the waves and hurled at him great volleys of hail, lightning, and thunderbolts. God then dispatched Leviathan, the monstrous ally of Tehom, with one blow to the head, and also the monster Rahab with a thrust of his sword straight through the heart."
Tehom, the Abyss, and his "monstrous" acolytes surely represent Tiamata and her allies, who were mostly destroyed, expelled, or buried in the earth, which is to say in the hollow world of the Abzu (the Abyss).
As you will have understood, this grotesque allegory is intended to attest to the burial of the worship of the Mother-Goddess and of the Source by the alien usurpers. Whether it is Marduk who hunts Tiamat(a), Seth who pursues Apophis, Zeus who kills Typhon, Mikael who eliminates the villain Satan or even Yahvé who unseats Tehom-Leviathan, the story is exactly the same every time! We will see later that certain Biblical passages also equate the abyssal monsters (adversaries of the good and irritable "one God") to enemy countries, such as Egypt.
After the completion of Hudili's address to the assembly, Mamitu took Sa'am aside and told him that with her new power of Niama (that she had received from him), she was now able to view the future developments on Uraš, and they were horrible. Unimaginable anguish and bloodshed awaited them.
...The perverse beings who destroyed our queen's fleet are going to create bitterness on this world. The Namlú'u will fall and our own people will suffer to a point that you do not imagine.... my son, I see blood, much blood flowing...
Mam was practically in a panic and wanted to leave Uraš as quickly as possible, within the brief moment of time that she felt was available to them. She had calculated that they had enough ships at their disposal (about sixty Gigirlah) to escape with all the Amašutum and Sa'am's Nungal. But Sa'am recalled his briefing by the Kadištu and would not flee what he felt to be his responsibility.
In this discussion, Mam explained that this ill-fated planet had long been under the hidden control of the royal Gina'abul -- the Kingú Babbar. She had always concealed this information from the Kuku administration of Margíd-da (Ursa Major) who, had they known that Ti-ama-te (the Solar System) was dominated by their eternal rivals, would have come on the instant.
And so she had labored long and hard to maintain light on this planet. But now that the Kadištu had gone, she had no more spirit for it.
It was here that Sa'am told his mother that the Kadištu had actually turned over the vigil over the planet to them, Sa'am, his mother and sisters, and the others with them.
This was news, and she was moved by it. She said that it is very rare that the Kadištu ever make any suggestions to anyone. In this case, she said, Sa'am should disregard her earlier proposals. She opened wide her protective arms...
My son, I will support you unto the death, if that should come.
Exchanging New Names: Zehuti and Petah :
THOTH - PTAH :
In the solemn moments following Hudili's moving speech, Sa'am/Enki without any reflection was moved to give to his premier Nungal the title/name Zehuti (= Egyptian Djehuti/Thoth). Please see the Decoder for decomposition of the Sumerian syllables in this word.
Thoth is frequently represented in the form of a being with the head of an ibis. One should know that the ibis is often reported to be the bird that symbolizes the dead who voyages in the other world before attaining the light. Thus, Thoth is justly he who "brings to the deceased the breath of life".
[His role is] similar to that of Seth's for the solar god, but contrary to Seth, Thoth defends the sun god not with a sword, but with magical formulas, because he is a great magician. We also note that Thoth personifies knowledge, science, and writing. He is generally considered as "the bird emerged from Ptah"...
Zehuti quickly returned the gesture, announcing to the entire gathering that henceforth he would name Sa'am-Enki Petah (Ptah).
Some correspondences between the Egyptian god Ptah and Sa'am-Enki:
PTAH SA'AM-ENKI :
More evidence will be provided as we proceed, supporting the concept that Sa'am-Enki corresponds well to the Egyptian divinity Ptah.
