Kharsag :

At the end of Anton Parks' first book, Le Secret des Etoiles Sombres, the opening battles of the great new war between the rebellious Ušumgal and Tiamata's combined forces had quickly resulted in disaster for the Ušumgal, except that a remnant had escaped to this solar system, and in the process Enlíl had managed to chase Tiamata here as well, where she was subseqently destroyed.

Enlíl had done this, while Sa'am-Enki and his associates, who also had managed to flee to Ti-ama-te and Uraš in particular, were having a relatively idyllic time experimenting with the life forms they found in our now-southern hemisphere. Sa'am, Mamítu-Nammu, and their immediate party had gone to "the heart of the planetary reserve," and were joined there by 300 surviving Nungal, accompanied by close to 180 Amašutum and also by a small number of Anunna who had gotten past a protective barrier set up by the Kadištu.

They sheltered there, having broken communication with the maneuvering warriors, while combat raged elsewhere in Ti-ama-te, and particularly on Udu'idimsa (Mars), which was the larder of the solar system at that time. An soon consolidated and established himself there along with his bloody warriors.

There were assurances that Mulge, the planet of the Kadištu, would never be conquered, due to its elevated frequency. Certain races of Life Designers lived there in the ANGAL (higher frequencies), while others such as the Amašutum, the Abgal, and perhaps the Urmah, tended to frequent the Abzu (subterranean world). Parks does not know of the status of Mulge-Tab (the satellite of Mulge) at that time, though a number of Amašutum had been stationed there since the coming of that race into the bosom of the Kadištu (Life Designers).

When total victory was announced by An, Enlíl's illustrious future here was assured, while Sa'am-Enki would remain forever a barely-tolerated strangeling, even though his great talents were desperately needed and gladly received by the new overlords.

 


Karma One: The Ušumgal hierarchy and the Anunna came to colonize the surface of the globe and installed themselves, not at first in the Mesopotamian plain, but in the mountains situated today to the north of Mesopotamia...

You differ here from Sitchin who believes that the Anunna established themselves in the plains -- Eden -- in order to set up spaceports for the arrival of "rockets".

Your book also gives evidence that the Anunna, as well as other races or castes, travel with technologies much more sophisticated than "rockets", such as interdimensional and antigravitational vessels that make use of "stargates" or Diranna.

Can you say more of this?


Anton Parks: Concerning the location of the Anunnaki (terrestrial Anunna) base, it is quite clear in my mind that they establish themselves in the Taurus mountains before becoming fixed in Edin (the Mesopotamian plain).

This is what I have received. However, I cannot understand why other authors always think the contrary, because the tablets clearly express the evidence. I am thinking precisely of the tablets of Kharsag that I cite in my last work.

Another important point has just supported my view: the fact that Enki's Life Designers, the Nungal (or Igigi), were made to dig the Tigris and Euphrates channels to provide water for the future towns of the Edin (the plain). Why would the Anunnaki install themselves in Edin before these two Biblical rivers were dug? How would they have survived in this vast plain without water? That makes no sense to me.

As to the technology of the "gods", and in abstracting from what I have been able to observe in my "visions", I will say only one thing: I cannot see extraterrestrial races traveling in space with rockets! Rockets or space ships of yesterday and today are typically human productions and not the intergalactic vessels that afford the ability to move about our universe. I clearly explain in The Secret of the Dark Stars the reality of stargates and their use by the "gods". I don't see what I could add to this subject, only that I am absolutely convinced that these have been studied by the militaries for many dozens of years.

 

[N]

 

There came a time when a major colonial facility was needed, and Sa'am-Enki designed and oversaw its construction in what is now known as the Taurus Mountains of Turkey, according to the best understanding of Anton Parks.

Parks and I have cooperated on a project whose aim is to develop a complete graphic picture of the colony, which constitutes what was known as Kharsag and which incorporates the so-called Garden of Eden. We are documenting this effort within these pages.

Note that a second colony, figuring importantly in Parks' planned third volume of The Chronicles, was constructed after the first one was destroyed in an Earth upheaval around 10,000 years ago. For the purposes of distinguishing them, on these pages we designate them as Kharsag 1 and Kharsag 2.

Other than a brief mention, not much will be said here about Kharsag 2 until the third book is published.

Determining the exact location of Kharsag 1 was difficult, as might be expected. Parks had a strong mental image of the landscape and its features; finding them on a modern map was the problem. There was an additional aspect: we did not know how much the terrain had been altered by the upheaval mentioned above.

We developed the following methodology:

1.     As a first-order approximation, we assumed that no significant changes to the terrain had taken place.

2.     Parks located the general area on a printed map.

3.     I developed images of the area using Google Earth.

4.     Parks moved to the smaller scale with appropriate imagery from Google, attempting to refine the position. He settled on several possibilities.

5.     Using Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data and a variety of software, I produced rendered landscapes representing each tentative area. Parks then selected one outstanding choice from among those.

6.     We examined that choice with more imagery, looking for anything that would contradict Parks' memory.

7.     Since there were a few contradictions, we "adjusted" the landscape to eliminate those. The needed adjustments were rather minor: a flat area had to be raised slightly, and a river course had to be diverted into another channel that exists today but that has a few blockages, and is dry.

8.     That constituted the "localization". The process is virtually complete.

9.     Much work remains on representing the atmosphere, vegetation, artificial construction, creatures, and work activities.

 

We have provided on another page a report of a study showing via interim images how we implemented the process described above, to determine the original colony's location. For the moment, that "report" contains additional images that more logically belong on the page you are viewing now. We are reorganizing all of these images at this time, and adding some new ones on this page. Some images will be moved from the "study" to this page. Temporarily, there will be some duplication between the two pages.

 

The first Kharsag colony, that which we call Kharsag 1, was established in present-day Turkey, in the Taurus Mountains southwest of Lake Van (the large dark body of water in this Google Earth image). Its specific position (37.63N, 41.97E) is labelled "Kara Dag 1". (Google Earth labels several high ground areas in the Taurus Mountains as "Kara Dag". Since one of these coincides with Kharsag 1, we called it "Kara Dag 1", at least in this image.) After the Earth's upheaval due to the close encounter with Mulge-Tab (Venus) roughly 12,000 years ago, Kharsag 2 was built close to the western shore of the lake. The green rectangle indicates the area selected for the present study. "DEM" refers to the "Digital Elevation Model" dataset obtained for rendering into 3-D models.

 

Google Earth view to the south over the Kharsag 1 area. The high ground that was the position of the Kharsag 1 headquarters is as stated one of several designated Kara Dag on the Google Earth maps of the Taurus Mountains. In the distance to the south is what was called the "Edin Plain", a work camp and a place of dreadful hardship for the workers there. The platform south of Kara Dag 1 was Enlil's customary vantage point for watching the ongoing work with the aid of high-tech viewing systems. Today, this "platform" area is not high enough to provide an unobstructed view to the south. We feel it is acceptable to correct this by raising the platform slightly in our rendered landscapes, citing the planetary changes induced by the Mulge-Tab encounter as a possible cause of a later subsidence. Just to the north of Kara Dag 1 (toward the bottom of image), the green valley below the ridge was the site of Ninmah's Garden, where Ninmah and Enki experimented with crops and other plants. We will be sure to render a watercourse through the valley of Ninmah's Garden and appropriate vegetation, originally cedar, pine, poplar, and willows along the stream.

 

The platform area, shown with south at top. Another variance from Parks' memory was the location of the stream, shown in grey in the Google Earth view. We indicate here in red color the routing that Parks recalls. In our landscape rendering, we filled somewhat the stream bed on the right and dug one on the left corresponding to the red, and we raised the platform.

Landscape render of the previous view with the modifications. Inverted white pylon in foreground marks a possible position for Enlil's observing point. At rear along ridge, right to left, can be seen pylon markers for Enlil's house, Ninmah's laboratory (green), and (partially obscured at extreme left, reddish) Enki's house.

 

East-to-west view of the Kara Dag ridges (vertically aligned at the center of the image) showing the building locations and the valley on the right that will be Ninmah's Garden. A stream is to be shown running through the garden valley as in the next image. Enki's house location is by the water in the western valley closer to the top of this image. Enlil's viewing platform south (left) of the ridges is also marked with an inverted pylon. From here, looking further south, Enlil could monitor the agricultural activities on the Edin Plain.

 

Ninmah's Garden area in valley below ridge with Enlil's and Ninmah's house position markers. We have shown a large patch of soil for planting and will add the plantings next. Some fruit trees will be placed on the periphery; there will be an orchard near Enki's house whose position is seen at the far right corner of the image.

 

Growing wheat on the Edin Plain. View to the north. What is the most important element of this picture? The system of irrigation canals is the most important construction project ever undertaken by humans... because the human race was introduced precisely in order to build it. Blue sky courtesy Ama'argi at the request of An.

Actually this explanation of the view is an oversimplification. As we get further into the Ádam Genisiš story, we will see that the river and canal projects were well underway before the first of our family of humans had been created. Originally the Nungal and even some Gina'abul worked on the rivers while Miminu were assigned to canal construction.

Note: the most ancient variety of wheat cultivated by man is known as Einkorn, and the earliest discovered remains of it have been found in the Karadag mountains of Turkey.

Foundation of Kharsag :

This website represents an effort to acquaint non-French-speaking readers with the larger themes and implications of Anton Parks' work as well as a lower-level view of the narratives of his books that are still awaiting translation beyond the original French language. At times we give simple direct translations; at other times compressed summaries. (We confess to developing these at a somewhat leisurely pace.) Where we have contributed illustrations, graphics, tables, etc., to the books themselves, these are presented here, once the books are published at least in French.

On this page we return to the narrative that was interrupted several pages back at the end of the Adjustments paragraph.

 

Dukug :

Sa'am-Enki made his way across vast expanses of desert, heading south (remember the directions were later -- much later -- reversed) to the mountains named Dukug by Ninmah, where the Nungal had been toiling under Enlil's command and the watchful supervision of armed Mìmínu. (If necessary, review Races.) (Recall that Enlil had just decided to make Enki his Project Manager here.)

The sight of his beloved Nungal and their condition literally sickened him.

They for their part, were overjoyed to see him. He quickly had the Albarzil (mechanical drill) unloaded and put into service. He let his people know that their fortunes had changed from that moment, and to celebrate, declared a one-day holiday... much to the puzzlement and objection of the Mìmínu, whom he told to go complain to Enlil about it if it concerned them so much. (They did.)

Enki then searched for, and found, Zehuti, bent with the labor and almost at the end of his strength. They had a warm reunion, following which Enki took Zehuti and the females aboard the cargo vessel and returned to the Abzu. There, Zehuti was established in Sé'et's chamber, advised to get much-needed rest, and then given the responsibility to administer Enki's domain.

For Enki's place was to be in the Dukug with Ninmah and Enlil. To which he immediately returned in a Gigirlah.

He found them waiting at the foot of the Sacred Mountain, where the first order or business, of course, was Enki's peremptory granting of the day off to his Nungal. Enlil was looking quite imperious as he tried to dress Enki down for not coming to him first before taking such steps. However, Ninmah cut him off handily, with the advice that the Nungal were not animals and needed their rest.

Clearly Ninmah had the upper hand, and indeed Enlil was noticeably softened in her presence.

They boarded their ship and went to search for the ideal site on which to construct their new city. Ninmah wanted it to be along the edge of one of the numerous watercourses. Eventually they settled on such a place.

It was decided that Enki would be occupied with the supervision of the works while Enlil would be with the social administration of the colony.

The next day, Enki assembled most of the Annuna of double-polarity (recall that some thirty of these had already been of great assistance in the building of the Nunkiga agricultural station) and most of the specimens of the same nature from among An's troops. Essentially washed up on a savage and unknown island, possessing only rudimentary tools, and but little assisted by the technology of the Ama'argi, they would require the services of diligent workers.

As to the mode of buildings' construction, they would have to be of wooden frames from the available cedar, and vertical poles. They were too pressed to take the time for stone-cutting, and while Mam had the Abgal knowledge of stone-pouring, she could not be approached, having been ousted from the Gina'abul society.

Work began immediately on the clearing of many trees to make a large habitable zone. In this, the Anunna of double polarity performed remarkably well.

As work proceeded, Enki noticed that Ninmah's plans did not provide for exteriors to provide protection from the elements. This lack would have led to the need to rebuild every five years, which would have been unacceptable.

His solution was to provide exterior ventilation systems of copper, precious metal which he brought in from the Abzu. He would need this also for the roofs.

For the most important buildings -- Enlil's residence, the main warehouse for storing the harvests, etc. -- Enki planned walls of cut stone. The Ama'argi had great reserves of the stone and the copper that he would need.

Enki carried out rigorous explorations of the mountains, in which he encountered specimens of Ukubi (genus Homo). (These are tabulated above... see First Inhabitants.) Enlil was for systematically eliminating any of these that ventured too close to the new constructions but Ninmah and Enki dissuaded him from this, claiming that they were totally inoffensive, though Enki actually did not know for certain. The Girkù showed several tribes of Ukubi-Ádam (Homo Erectus) armed with hand weapons of wood, prepared to do battle against the Red Kingù.

The Ama'argi had such an aversion to the Kingú flesh-eaters that they had given this faculty of self-defense to some of the Ukubi, but those who strode the mountains seemed totally pacific.

Once the work got underway in the Dukug, Ninmah left for a final two-month visit to Udu'idimsa (Mars). During that time, Enlil stayed at Enki's side, passing his time verifying the progress of the work and observing Enki's least movements. But his favorite pastime consisted of surveying, with the aid of a magnifying viewer, the progress of the labor in Edin. In fact, when Enki was there near his people, he was certain that the Šàtam (territorial administrator) was obstinately spying on them.

We have numerous illustrations of this viewing platform arrangement in the Kharsag section and the associated study.

A difficulty arose. The irrigation system under construction had been intended to deliver needed water to the city and its cultures. But it was also to provide water to all the Diranna (stargates) that were spread along the length of the Edin plain. These were going to have towns too. Enlil observed and pointed out that this would result in a sinuous trajectory that would not be acceptable. "We must not build one river, Enki, but two!"

Actually Enki knew this but he had hesitated to bring it up because he wanted to spare his workers the doubling of their labors. He objected, but Enlil rapidly became upset and said this would have to be brought to the High Council. But until then, they could proceed as they were, because the first Diranna was 3 UÅ¡ (32.4 km) distant.

[Note that the precision of this placement is not 0.1 km but rather of course 1 UÅ¡ or about 10 km, along the line of a river planned 300,000 years ago, measured from a point on the ground of which we are not at all certain.]

 

I recalled the counsels of Mam just before my departure for the Dukug:

(Mam) Put Namkiágna (love) in all you undertake, my son, and you will see that Namkiágna will return to you inexorably.

 

Her doctrines issued from Gagsisá (Sirius) seemed familiar to me but sometimes so difficult to apply.

 

 

 

ENKI as Master Mason

A title he found absurd...

The double-polarity Anunna named him Å idimgal (Master Mason).

We note that the Sumerian term ŠIDIM-GAL (master mason) has the same archaic sign as the name MUŠDA (powerful reptile), habitually attributed on the tablets to Enki-Éa, sovereign of the Abzu (terrestrial abyss).

Here we move forward just a bit in the narrative...

Ninmah has returned from Udu'idimsa. All could see that the work was going well. Kharsag's buildings were incomplete but they had their roofs and the place was generally habitable. It was time to organize a ceremony in honor of the three creators of Kharsag: Ninmah, Enlil, and Enki. And this took place at a divine Assembly, which was the natural point for Enlil to present his proposal of the second river. Of course this was accepted without hesitation.

Dim'mege was present, and here she made a stupefying request:

 

(Dim'mege) When the work in Edin has been completed, I reclaim the responsibility for the Mášanše (livestock) and the whole of the Ádam (animals) who are charged with assisting the Gina'abul of the Dukù in their tasks of labor!

Enlil doubtless found in this an opportunity to rid himself of a task both inconvenient and without any advantage for a grand Šàtam such as he. The High Council probably thought that Dim'mege had consulted the Mardukù and had positioned herself through a rapport with him. So under the effect of the joy and the flowing alcohol, the Assembly, seized with an uncontrollable zest, accepted the request.

 

MUNUS-LÍL-LÁ


"The female who carries the breath", understood as the breath of life. This term is the Sumerian equivalent to the Akkadian Lílitu (the Lilith of the Hebraic texts). We have already noted (see Personages) that DÌM-ME-GE6 "dark pillar" has equally for its Akkadian equivalence the name Lílitu, of which the original stems directly from the Sumerian LÍL-TI, "breath of life".

 

 

 

Furthermore they awarded Dim'mege the honorary title of Munuslíl'lá, denomination that did not displease her.

Here is a brief listing of the important incidents and events from the closing pages of the chapter on Kharsag's foundation and the final hours of the Assembly:

 

  • Enki ponders how he is to break it to his workers that they must dig TWO river beds.

  • Dim'mege assures Enki that she is not an ingrate (not clear what that means), that she has an extraordinary patience, and that he will thank his sister one day.

  • In a loose (drunken) moment, Ninmah reveals to Enki that Sé'et is indeed on Mars, and is engaged in helping with the harvesting of crops.

  • Annoyed at her verbal excess, Enlil drags Ninmah off.

  • As he does so, Enki taunts Enlil about being his alagni (made-in-the-laboratory creation); Enlil denies it as always. The Kuku (ancestors) who understand very well, have learned to stay off this topic.

  • As night descends, Kharsag is illuminated and is described as becoming quite beautiful.

  • Enki takes inventory of what is still needed: warehouse for foods, laboratory for Ninmah, irrigation canals, large reservoir.

Sign :

During the development of Kharsag and the plantations, Enki takes an occasional rest trip... for a dip in the sea (with respect to his amphibian nature)... or a visit with the Ugubi (apes) and the Ukubi (genus Homo) of Kankala (Africa).

Here the reader might review the diagram in the section First Inhabitants, noting that Parks considers the entire subfamily Homininae (Homininians) to be nested within the family Hominidae (Hominids) that includes the Ugubi.

 

These species are numerous and varied. Certain tribes -- without doubt the most ancient -- do not possess the use of the word, while others communicate with the aid of sonorities unknown to me. But they speak! Their larynx, more elevated than ours, does not permit the same intonations as we use. To think that my mother is in large part responsible for this genetic cuisine sends shivers down my spine. The archives of Mam enfolded in my Gírkù are categorical: Mamítu-Nammu has cloned several species, and more particularly that of the Ukubi'im (Homo Neanderthalensis) in a manner so as to render the line of Ugubi (apes) autonomous and thus to restrain the savage harvestings effected by the Kingú.

The Ama'argi, for their part, seem to have modified certain varieties uniquely to flatter their ego and perhaps even to try to do better than my genetrice. The Ama'argi have played a double game. Certain of their manipulations were official and others clandestine. At the same time, from other traces I gathered that isolated groups of beings come from the stars had also manipulated certain Ukubi (genus Homo). But their aim was not exposed in my crystal.

Enki regularly visits a tribe of Neanderthal at "Sínsal", in "the grand reserve of Kankala (Africa)" and works to gain their acceptance. These were called "Ullegarra" or "Annegarra" by the Anunna as shown in the schema The Two Adamic Lines. Their fossils are found in Africa, Europe, and the Near East. Heights range from 1.55-1.65 m.

He is completely accepted the day they discover his hands are palmated.

This tribe is evolved; its members dress in skins of antelope; they dwell in wicker huts, in relative comfort. They procreate by sexual rapport.

Enki's experiences with the Neanderthal reveal them to be a charming and actually advanced race of beings... in many deep respects though not in technology. We will not be able to detail this material here, but the following is essential:

 

At the heart of the infertile valley was found a luminous object with silvery reflections. We approached it. It revealed itself to be a capsule whose origin was unknown to me. Its form was triangular. It appeared to be an inverted Unir (pyramid) whose point was embedded deeply into the earth. From its inverted belly emanated a warm, soothing light. The Ukubi'im valiantly accosted the apparatus and celebrated its divine glow. Without knowing why, I was taken with an incomparable emotion.

I approached the object and saw a symbol on its side. Three small inverted pyramids formed conjointly a reversed triangle. I knew this emblem. Mam had presented it to me several times and it appeared on certain of her personal objects. This same sign was graven on Ugur, my inseparable Gírkù. It appeared to be the symbol of the Abgal from the triple system of Gagsisá (Sirius).

Tears flowed ceaselessly down my cheeks. I tried to contain myself, but the emotion was too strong and I did not know the reason for it. Was it my maternal filiation with the Abgal that had put me in this state? The Ukubi'im were overjoyed to note my trouble. Nammu had made me suffer through and recognize unknown emotions up until then. She was without contest my guide in this life. Her information was precious to me at every instant. How I would have wished that she could have been at my side in this particular moment!

I wanted to contact it with the aid of Kinsag (telepathy) but an Ukubi'im female approached and posed on my person a penetrating regard that troubled me profoundly. She took my hand and spread the fingers. She wanted without doubt to ascertain the common origin between the capsule and myself. What relation did the Ukubi'im entertain with the Abgal of the Gagsisá (Sirius) system? The Ukubi'im surprised me day after day. Not only did the Namlú'u seem to frequent them and share with them common rites, but the Ukubi'im also maintained a still stranger rapport with the Earth and its elements. I have read somewhere in my crystal that they bury their dead...

A final detail concerning Enki's visit needs to be mentioned: when he leaves the Ukubi'im, he takes with him a female, "for study", who becomes more of a companion for a period of time.

 

Prophecy :

Upon his return to the colony, Enki finds a visitor waiting for him in his quarters -- a Ninhal (priestess in divination) in full meditation. Rather mysterious, she wears a metallic mask that hides her entire face and gives her a menacing aspect... although her eyes are fully visible. A feature of her footwear suggests she is Ama'argi.

Shall we pause here and reflect a moment on what this website is really all about?

Although we didn't exactly warn you how far this might proceed, back on the first pages, we did at least state that an otherwise-ordinary person had been having extraordinary experiences: vivid memories of an extraordinary being living a truly extraordinary life in ancient times on this planet. In fact, we now understand that we are being handed, if we can accept it, a lengthy, detailed history of a remarkable being, known to us by several names out of our mythology, who seems to have been shouldering responsibility for the well-being of several humanoid races, at least two of them being of his own creation, and one of them being ourselves, faced with powerful, deadly enemies as well.

This relationship of creation to creator, and its truth or misrepresentation, has given rise to issues of status -- divine nature or claims to divine nature, and rights, you might say.

All of this is taking place within the context of a war -- a galactic war at that, one which may be persisting into our day, and coloring the actions of the various power structures in our human civilization.

And if that were not enough, we are about to learn that one of the sides in the galactic war has a shamanic tradition, under which our central character is made to undergo periodic review and evaluation by those with the perspective of his long sequence of lives and the source of all this. One of those examinations is about to take place.

For us, the readers, this is a priceless touchstone, a kind of exposure to reality that we never expected to find... or it is nothing. That is something we decide for ourselves.

So we proceed. Here are the main points of the session.

The Ninhal places Enki in the middle of a large pentagram that she has traced on the ground. (Yes, the symbol is that old and was used by the Amašutum in their enigmatic ceremonies.) She seats herself before him and examines his hands.

Noticing the Ukubi, who is absorbed in an examination of some crystals, she warns Enki not to associate himself with the likes of that Urašienne (Earthienne).

Enki does not take this well. In other words, things are not getting off to a good start.

The priestess indicates that this is a matter of the highest importance, and means abandonning his mission in life if he persists. The discussion continues intensely for some time.

The priestess broadens the discussion. Enki is impatient and irritable throughout.

She finally manages to gain his interest by telling him she sees his line of life as on a table of crystal.

 

(The priestess) You will live multiple adventures and you will have choices to make to preserve your wellbeing and that of your family... that of Nammu. I distinguish a visage exquisitely made up... dark green eyes outlined in night. A female of solitary destiny will come and her times will perturb your existence... a Nin (priestess) of divine allure, bedecked in an infinity of jewels. The color of her skin will be identical to that of the Babbar (albinos). In these troubled times, Uraš will bear mortals who resemble you to some degree. The Gina'abul males and their mortal sovereigns will be at her feet. She will put the people of Uraš to their knees, innumerable in this epoch. The entire world will tremble at her passage...

The priestess continues, describing this Nin who will exalt the imagination of soldiers on the field of battle. For this fateful time she will be under the influence of the grand Šàtam, Enki's creature Enlil, and Enki's creator An. Cities, banquets, temples are described.

 

(The priestess) Her destiny is tied in part to yours... It is she whom you pursue and you unconsciously flee... She is a double of the above and the below... you are Urní (sister souls).

 

Sister Souls :

Again, Enki will have none of it. But the priestess continues, perhaps because her information is the most important possible for Enki. And in fact we feel we must provide this part verbatim as it is possibly the most important in any of Parks' books... not only for the characters but for us as well, if we can figure out exactly how we are linked to it. So we proceed:

 

(Enki) What tale are you telling me, poor fool?!! I am a complete soul, not fragmented. This is my first Zišàgál (incarnation)....

 

(The priestess) You are mistaken, my son! Your error is at the image of your candor. Do you believe that you would be such as you are today if you had never taken Zišàgál (incarnation) prior to this?

When the long road of Zišàgál unfurls such that the objectives of each become known, the Ba (the soul) can decide to fragment into two or several parts, it is its choice! But the process is irreversible up to the point where each part has achieved its work and recovered its other fragments at the end of the cycle. So it is not until the missions of each of them will be accomplished that each fraction will be able to reform the initial being.

The majority of Kadištu (Life Designers) have finished this work of Gibilzišàgál (reincarnation) and serve the Source in awaiting the definitive rejoining.

The entire being that you represent has made the choice to so divide, my son. It has taken the resolution to fractionnate itself for a better evolution. But it is plausible, even foreseeable, that certain of your parts can be recovered according to your evolution and your lives...

 

I was dumbfounded by this revelation. My inner universe was completely shaken. What was I, truly? Only the fragment of an unknown being? My ego had taken a mortal blow.

 

(Enki) What is my profound origin? I asked, completely disillusioned.

 

The Nindigir (priestess) again took my hands and employed a more indulgent tone:

(The priestess)  My son, do you not see it? Have you not discovered it thanks to your progenitrice and to the dark little ones of the vast Edin (plain)? Your eyes, your hands, and your feet are for me an open book. You are not only affiliated to the Abgal of Gagsisá (Sirius) through your mother, but you are so equally on the part of the provenance even of your Ba (soul). Your entire celestial family comes from this admirable place. It appears to be the planet named Sé'etrá'an that is situated in orbit around Gagsisá-Eš (Sirius 3).

We well knew that the planetary systems of Gagsisá were composed of three suns. However, the name of Sétra'an evoked for me nothing in particular.

 

(The priestess) You do not seem to know this sacred name. Sé'etra'an is the place where the largest number of Gir [see Decoder] reside. As you know, the Gir are Nindidir susceptible to birthing a Kirišti [see Decoder]. The term Sé'etra'an is translated SÉ-ET-RÁ-AN "the presage of life who accompanies the elevated". The name of your sister Sé'et (presage of life) comes plausibly from this source.

(Enki) Then why do you speak to me of another Nindidir, other than the one destined to me? My progenitrice has the secret intention of making me a Kirišti. Is not Sé'et the one destined to accompany me? If I have an Urní (sister soul), it must be she....

My interlocutrice stopped me short:

(The priestess) Nammu is mistaken! One does not become Kirišti, but one is that from birth. The Kirišti must habitually be authentic Abgal. You possess only 1/4 Abgal blood via Nammu. Your mother is 2/4 Abgal - Tiamata, her progenitrice, not being fully of Gagsisá (Sirius). It is your sister Sé'et who possesses the most Abgal blood among you, in the neighborhood of 3/4.

Furthermore, a Kirišti must be conceived naturally and exclusively by a Gir. Have you come from the flanks of Nammu my son?

Moreover, where is Sé'et? Is she at your side to sustain you in your task?

 

Seeing me disappointed, the priestess took a compassionate air. She hesitated a short moment and lanced at me:

 

(The priestess) You cannot be other than what you are. You are the victim of a laborious consanguine degeneration... exactly as planned by the Gina'abul. Doubtless you are here to alleviate some pain among our people. But that is not all, my son....

 

The eyes of the reader of destiny darkened again. She continued:

(The priestess) My child, I must again place you on guard agains this Nin (priestess) with the pearly skin. She certainly is your counterpart, however watch your attitude. Your choices are disparate. Your distant counterparty has chosen diversionary roads that we must not judge. She always will know how to give a pretext to her cries and her tears. You closely resemble one another on many points, but the route that she has chosen is broken and holds many pitfalls.

It is in the masculine that she will try to find comfort and the soothing of her pains. She will use manners until then unknown to attract the males in her royal litter. Many among them will fall by her doing into madness or will simply lose their lives.

You alone will understand her, and you will estimate her without taking yourself well into account because an Urní (sister soul) is always attracted by one of his or her counterparties. However, when her agile and imperious silhouette will have won over the powers of this world; when the shadows that she engenders in the name of your creator and of the grand Šàtam, will have recovered Uraš; when her delicate and contempuous tone have ceased to resonate in the alabaster palaces and when the dead packed under her feet will have made her sick with nausea, this Nin of indomitable youth will come to you totally desperate. She will have no more wealth.

At that moment, because her eyes will no longer be in quest of ambition, she will finally place her clear vision on you and will recognize you as whom she has searched for, during an eternity. You will become her unique object of lust.

You must take guard not to fall into madness yourself, because this female will possess a powerful magnetism.

She will try to change for you. Her attachment to your regard will be hidden from the ensemble of the Gina'abul.... That is all that you must know about her, my son, without the risk of influencing the destiny that you have chosen for yourself...

 

They continue; the point is not that Enki has chosen to suffer, but that he has already chosen these major paths under discussion, but still must work out the detours.

 

We pick up the dialog a bit further on, with other information that appears useful to us.

 

(Enki) Nammu claims that the density of Urašien (earth) KI is poison for males of the lineage coming from Urbar'ra (the constellation of Lyra) and that I will end by bitterly proving this reality if Sé'et does not return to me. What do you say to that?

(The priestess) The royals and their Imdugud descendants do not have this problem. It is true that the frequency of this planet is more elevated than that of our colonies and particularly of Urbar'ra (Lyra) and even of Margíd'da (Ursa Major). The KI of Uraš (earth) is poison for the males who come from these celestial places. I have but one recommendation to make on this subject my son, which is to find a Nindigir (priestess) who will give you her "look of life".

 

(Enki) I am considered by most of us as a Kadištu (Life Designer). I have received the breath of my mother, I am the "reflection of the Mistress of life". I am son of the water and the Níama expands in me like a fountain at an inexhaustible source. Nothing can happen to me!

(The priestess) The Niama has nothing to do with that. The majority among us do not possess this power and that does not impede us from being Kadištu (Life Designers). I will not be as categorical as you. You too much resemble your creator. Your apprenticeship has definitely not yet been achieved. You must have a bit more regard for your Nungal.

What is to become of the Nungal?

 

The priestess hesitated a short moment...

(The priestess) Your alagní (clones) are innocent victims. If your fidelity to the relationship resists the temptations and tempests that menace you, then you will know how to take the measures that will deliver these beings of yours.

 

The session ended abruptly at that point. The Ninhal (meditation priestess) rose, made her sign of reverence, and left the apartments soundlessly.

We end here with Enki's consideration of the dark small one he had brought from the vast Edin, and the female named Húlla, the small Ugubi (ape or monkey) of Nammu. Why so much difference in their statures and temperaments? Enki was determined to find the reason and above all to comprehend the functioning of these exotic species, in action so much more peaceful than the Gina'abul.

 

Reflections on Page AG5

Well, what are we to make of all this?

We are being handed information about how a conscious entity grows in a nonhuman evolution. Could this possibly have anything to do with ourselves?

I am going to suggest that if it did not, we would not be reading it in the first place...
because it comes to us through a person who makes no claim to be anything other than fully human and yet he has it through what seems to be immediate first-hand experience. And if he has some connection, could not others?

What that connection is is actually suggested by the story itself: there was or is a very great apprenticeship taking place. Our human race was still something for the future, but Sa'am/Enki had created the Nungal as part of his Life Designer apprenticeship and he was now being informed that his work was not being judged too kindly as he appeared to have abandoned his creatures. Apparently, once created, a conscious race needed following.

Now I am perhaps guessing here, but would not one way of following up be to take incarnation into the race itself from time to time, and what would be the benefit in doing that if something could not be brought in?

Would there not be perfect justice in this operation, as the creator would be made to experience exquisitely the experience of his creation... and perhaps to take any needed corrective action.

We barely know how this would work. For example, we gather that Sa'am/Enki is not the only being responsible for human genetics. We have hints that many have dabbled, not the least forces who have opposed the "Life Designers" in the galactic war about which we are beginning to learn. Who knows but what they are all forced to come in at times? Would that not bring about the kind of situation we see around us today?
