Note on Points of the Compass:
Parks describes a convulsive encounter 10,000 years ago between Uraš (the Earth) and the planetoid Mulge-Tab (Venus) in which Uraš's axis flipped by 180 degrees. Since the north and south directions are defined in relation to the geometry of the solar system, this presents a problem in choosing the convention to be used to describe positions on Uraš's surface in his books -- especially since part of the narrative relates to the post-encounter era in which we live today.
Parks chooses to use the sense of direction that is correct for each era. Thus the land that will become Australia was in the northern hemisphere; today it is in the south.
If the matter of east and west should come up, keep in mind that in the previous era the Sun would rise over what is today's western shore of Australia and set over the east.
We will generally use today's cardinal directions, to avoid confusion on the part of casual readers of our pages. However when translating directly from Parks' books, we will show Parks' usage and also note the current directions in brackets.
Deep History :
Although much worse was to come, Uraš (the Earth) was hardly idyllic when Sa'am and his party arrived there, or before! Its history had been scattered with conflicts, and often bloody ones. All of this was described to Sa'am by Mamitu, who knew the planet well, and Sé'et, who had studied Uraš' history on Nalulkára.
The group established themselves in Sigun, "the red land" in Gina'abul-Sumerian, which today is Australia [see Decoder]. According to Mam, the area was sacred, but she was evasive as to the reason. She did reveal to Sa'am that Sigun had once been part of an extended land, but it had become detached when Uraš had moved away from the sun in the very distant past due to a projectile of colossal size that had been ordered onto the planet by the Kadištu High Council. This had had the effect of toppling the planet's axis of rotation.
Uraš had always been considered a gigantic laboratory and in a laboratory one can recover from unexpected results, especially when unknown factors had been introduced without authorization. In the event, the unexpected had been occasioned by the mad creation of the Gina'abul.
This people had set its sights on Uraš for a very long time. The planet being a "neutral" place where experimentation was extensively practiced, the males of the royal Gina'abul family took the liberty of performing numerous genetic experiments leading to the famous huge Hušmuš, the savage reptiles of ancient times.
In those days the Kadištu were not as much on top of matters in Ti-ama-te. So, suddenly they found they no longer absolutely controlled the situation, and they were thus forced to assume the radical and difficult solution of assassinating the planet. The projectile caused a sudden change of climate that exterminated a great part of the planetary fauna.
Sa'am did not know, and Mam, who had to know, would not say, if it had been an object of Kadištu fabrication, or a natural projectile.
Although there were some survivors of the decimated species, for years and even millennia, eventually those of the greatest size progressively disappeared from Uraš. Also, the climate became much more humid, and the entire planet became tropical.
The first prototype Namlú-u possessed a much denser body at the time of the Hušmuš. Their traces can still be found in the soil of Uraš. These first guardians of Uraš disappeared at the time of the catastrophe designed by the Kadištu. Certain of them had been directed to the Abzu, but few of those survived.
It was only following that great catastrophe that the Amašutum were admitted into the order of the Life Designers, and they were given as their initial mission various tasks having to do with the reconstruction and reorganization of life in the KI (3rd dimension).
A little before the arrival of the Amašutum, the Kadištu created the new prototype Namlú-u from the combined genetic patrimony of the Life Designers. Today this is a remarkable "mixed-blood". The Kadištu has lavished them with a multidimensional etheric body. Where the earlier version had had to put up with the worst perils created by the "royalty", it was important that the new model possess the capacities to move itself to where its principal enemy could not go.
After the events that ravaged Uraš, the Kadištu chose to create a permanent base on Mulge (MUL-GE6, the "black star"). The Urmah, Kadištu warriors, established their principal base underground somewhere in Kankala [from the Sumerian KANKAL, uncultivated country, Africa]. The Namlú-u were commissioned to steadily integrate the KI in support of the newly-arrived Life Designers, the Amašutum, and to effect the safekeeping of the life preserve of the planet.
We present here two "recursive" archive retrievals -- sets of recordings whose retrievals by Sa'am were themselves recorded and played once again into the awareness of present-day Anton Parks. They are found in Ádam Genisiš in the sequence in which the original retrieval sessions occurred, which is after the relocation of Sa'am and his people from their first encampment to the Abzu. Their placement in this Deep History section is determined by their basic content, which relates to the period prior to the arrival in the Ti-ama-te system of the Ušumgal, the Anunna, Sa'am and all the others.
The recordings make occasional reference to "Ušum (dragons)". Keep in mind that the Kingú originated in the constellation Ušu (Draco), which is where they created the Ušumgal (see Worlds). It is also the case that in other contexts (ancient Earth civilizations) the Kingú and the Ušumgal are respectively depicted in the form of Eagles and Serpents. This can be a source of confusion, as can the fact that the Kingú-Babbar are the "royal albinos" or simply referred to as "royals", while Earth civilizations associate royalty with serpents.
I asked Parks about this:
In AG, in one of the old recordings made by Mamitu into Ugur, she frequently refers to "Ušum (dragons)". The context seems to indicate that these are the Kingú-Babbar . Is it correct that "Ušum (dragons)" means Kingú-Babbar even though "Ušumgal" means "grand dragon"'?
Yes, exactly! Nammu speaks of the Kingú in this manner and particularly the reds (the more violent). It clearly seems to be the Kingú.
How does this contrast with the use of the symbol "Eagle" for the Kingú and "Serpent" for the Ušumgal in ancient civilizations?
This symbol is there to mark the domination of the royal Kingú over the Ušumgal serpents. I have not "seen" it, but I think that the Kingú have already eaten Anunna or other Gina'abul.
By extension, in the old days, we can also connect this symbol to the Nungal (of royal Kingú blood), who are opposed to the Anunna... the two function very well.
Miscellaneous old notes dictated by Mamítu-Nammu into Ugur. These recordings were retrieved from the crystal by a senior Kingú-Babbar with a momentarily-captive Sa'am/Enki witnessing...
(Mamítu-Nammu) We pursued the implantation of spiritual principles into the mortal mentality of numerous animal varieties of this planet. There is so much to be done to repair the errors of our people. I use for this the teachings of the Kuku (ancestors) of Gagsisá (Sirius). The introduction of Šim-Kúšu (whales) and Kíg-Ku (dolphins) by the Light Bearers is a success. After many Limamu (millennia), these mammals succeeded in balancing the vibratory rate of the planet. The task is huge, however. I sometimes have the impression that we will never complete it. I feel that I am not being well supported by my guides...
Many Life Designer colonies are trying to contact us. Certain of them succeed in meeting us. The confederation is worried and the Namlú'u have been showing themselves less and less for some time now. Everyone fears the war. As long as I will be covered by the Kadištu High Council, I swear that no conflict will break out...
My group has joined with a colony that comes from Adala, in Mulmul (the Pleiades). Their star system is near Ubšu'ukkinna (the star Maïa). [Parks thinks the star may be Taygete, depicted in Worlds.] They are Life Bearers of the Confederation. This colony was in difficulty on Kankala (Africa), and we provided assistance to them, as we did for the colony of Sigun (Australia) many years ago. Red Kingús had destroyed their fleet. The Kingú-Babbar give me absolutely no support. They prefer, as always, to deal with the various protagonists and preserve a form of "neutrality". I couldn't care less, we collaborate with many types of Kadištu. I will complete this mission, which Tiamata assigned to me with the accord of the entire Life Designer Confederation...
I have found the means of producing regenerative nucleic acids that give the Ukubi (apes, simians) a longer life. I have run some trials, and it seems to function perfectly. The Kadištu of the third order do not follow my work, they have...to me...
I have been called to the headquarters of the Kadištu. My instructors counseled me to cut back my work on the embryonic development of the Ukubi that I am conducting on Kankala (Africa). The minister dedicated to the development of Uraš declared that my experiments go too far and that they risk creating tensions between the different Gina'abul found in Ti-ama-te (the solar system). I must pursue my work clandestinely. The Kingú High Council must know nothing of my studies. The Red Kingú are nervous, they fire on everything that moves...
I don't understand, I try to improve the models of life, but the Life Designer leadership restrains our efforts through more and more frequent restrictions. The Kingú-Babbar don't have to worry about confectioning Mimínu subraces ("greys") for their egocentric purposes. They have found the means of neutralising the chemical and neuronal controls of their biological vassals, which modifies their emotions irremediably. On the contrary, we do not place limitations on our subjects! We respect the biological rhythm of species and proceed by stages when we intervene. The risks are not at all comparable...
A group of of Kadištu warriors, the Urmah, has been assigned to dislodge the recalcitrant Gina'abul. I know them, they are not very conciliatory. The Life Designer leadership employs them only as a last resort. We are no longer secure. I have ordered my daughter Dim'mege to return to the Abzu. She has dethroned Ninuru, the Ama'argi sovereign, and proclaimed herself queen of Šàlim. What violence! I had always imagined that she would become the sovereign of the subterranean world; I created her especially in this vision. But I did not expect it to come about in this fashion. I would like things to be otherwise. We are pursued by Red Kingú, the worst of all. We are permanently in danger. If these threats continue, we envisage returning to the Abzu...
The following early notes were retrieved by Sa'am in privacy. Sa'am believed that Mam actually intended that he find and view them eventually.
In the first described, Mam is in an open savannah, surrounded by strange-looking Ukubi...
(Mamítu-Nammu) The Ama'argi have fabricated, at the behest of the Ušum (dragons), a new prototype Ukubi that has been introduced into the reserve of Kankala (Africa). It is much tougher than the other species created up to now. It reproduces by itself. This new strain lives with its brothers in the west [east!] of the continent. Its brain box is a third larger than that of its predecessors. It manipulates objects without difficulty and seems docile. It learns quickly. If picked up by the reds, it can serve its masters with discipline. I detest these genetic cookings that transform science into unquantifiable art. These practices serve only to create more adroit domestics and not to improve a species...
I was supefied. Several other documents troubled me equally. They all put Nammu into the scene surrounded by Ukubi whose aspect seemed to change over time. An exceptional document came up. The visual and sound commenced in full tumult. Unknown Gigirlah made their appearance with a terrifying sound. Their color was reddish with silvery reflections. The night was lit by the evening star... which was not as I had known it... doubtless it was different in earlier times or else it was not the same star.
Ukubi ran in every direction. The light from large vessels illuminated the scene. In disarray and with an indescribable noise, the primates were lifted en masse into the air and flung into the gaping mouths of the cargo Gigirlah.
The spectacle suddenly changed aspect. The source recording the event, known as the Gírkù of Mam, began to jiggle vigorously. I saw feet running at high speed. The roar of the vessels approached. I heard a burst of voices. The image was so jerky that it was impossible to distinguish anything. Suddenly, total blackness. Panting resonated as in a corridor. After several instants passed as though suspended in time and space, I saw the face of Nammu. It was in a sweat. It was illuminated by Ugur, continuing to function. Mam began to whisper:
(Mamítu-Nammu) We are in the province of Sinsal*, in the heart of the animal reserve of Kankala (Africa). We must be careful. The Red Kingú see no difference between the Ukubi and ourselves. The reds are searching for manual workers and meat. Their demand for servants and nourishment grows more and more. They practice their kidnapping in the savannah day and night. We are usually informed in advance of the harvests, because we have informants among the royals. The Imdugud help us sometimes when they wish to avenge themselves on the reds with whom they have always had differences. When the reds descend from the heights, my team and I are obliged to descend into the ancient tunnels that the Urmah constructed in the past. The region possesses innumerable passages built a long time ago by warriors of the Source. Our principal base is in the Gigal, the ancient subterranean metropolis of the Urmah. There are still several of the feline Life Designers there. They have authorized us to set ourselves up next to them, but we avoid direct contact with them. The Urmah are peculiar; I am the only one who can approach them. We are all exhausted. The Ukubi are frightened. The Ukubi colony with which I work always requires a certain amount of time to connect with us again after a series of kidnappings. We always have to begin at zero again.
Mam frowned and turned her head to the side. Sobbing could be heard around her. End of recording...
Probing further for information about the royal Gina'abul and their interest in the Ukubi:
(Mamítu-Nammu) The last line that I had completed possessed the capacity to distinguish between the agreeable and the bitter. I had spoken of this to no one. Only my two closest collaborators whom I will not name, know it. If the Kingú were to discover that it was possible that one of our creatures were capable of release from the rules of society commonly accepted by the ensemble of our race, they would kill me on the spot! [...]
I am touched. It troubles me to observe that the Ba (the soul) who descends here and dons his terrestrial clothing will have to endure the KI in a thousand ways. Who are these Ukubi who defy the universal laws of ascensional movement? I am a Kadištu and I am incapable of answering this question. To learn, to endure matter in order to deepen one's understanding, yes, but to incarnate here to be parked in a reserve and be devoured by one's own creators... I am going to stop, beginning now, my research on the Ukubi. I will no longer be the accomplice of eaters of flesh. May the Ukubi live in peace! My efforts will be limited now to the study of the Namlú'u [...]
...This scene was set in the reserve of Kankala (Africa). Some royals had landed their Mága'an, a cargo vessel, in the bush. They were the red Kingús with horns. Their movements were quick and their agile tails thrashed the hot sand. They charged at some Ukubi that they had just chained and severely whipped. I was astonished to discover a commentary superposed by Mam on these images:
(Mamítu-Nammu) Behold the splendor of the Gina'abul. What abjection! What dishonor! Our work is reduced to nothing in the blink of an eye. How can the Kadištu High Council allow such a thing? May these images serve as evidence! The Reds are at their work. They are covered by the Kingú-Babbar. Damn them! May they all return to Te (the constellation Aquila)! How can I restrain myself from shrieking faced with such a spectacle? I have been deceived for too long! We have tried to create new Ukubi prototypes in the sole aim of producing an efficient manual laborer and nourishment for the line of Ušum (dragons). Among those captured and chained like this, only the specimens modified by the Ama'argi have a chance of winding up as domestics. The others in one blow are finished in the muzzles of the Ušum (dragons). The Kadištu confederates are powerless. This world is slipping between our fingers. I must admit that it has already been a long time since it was truly under our tutelage. The Ušum, by their conduct which is not within the principles of the Source, have established sectors where the light is no longer reflected. They nourish themselves there. The royals feed themselves on this emotion carried to its paroxysm. The Celestial Adjusters have been completely overrun. Uraš from now on carries a memory of suffering.
Another document gave me more understanding of the strange relationship that we seem to have with the royal Gina'abul, or Ušum (dragons). Another bit of information that my creator had taken care to integrate into the genetic programming that procured for me the ensemble of my intellectual capacities. I found Mam in a room, perhaps a laboratory. She seemed highly troubled:
(Mamítu-Nammu) I am at the moment sheltered in the Gigal. I have returned form the Itud (the moon). The Imdugud had invited me to meet with them in their secret bases. The sons of the Kingú-Babbar and the Urmah had received me to inform me of the royals' directives. (They sometimes play the intermediaries. They do it generally when they have affairs to treat with their Gina'abul co-creators.) This was very disturbing. The Imdugud indicated to me that the Kingú no longer wish to see me working in Kankala (Africa), still less in the Sínsal. The Kingú think that my work is going to conflict with their program. Their patience is no doubt wearing thin. They must have fallen on some specimens with enhanced awareness that we have developed. They have mastered fire, they command a structured social life and a noteworthy conception of the sacred. I have never transformed the Ukubi into servants as the Ušum (dragons) wished. The Ama'argi are charged with this in place of me! They have reorganized the central nervous system of several bipedal races. These experiments produced Ukubi of strong constitution who could carry heavy loads. But they were a bit clumsy. Their neural mechanisms were progressively refined in order to make their movements more precise. However, certain specimens still suffer from significant neurological problems. They have been stricken with epileptic automatisms that at times leave them in persistent vegetative states. The agile Ukubi little by little are annihilating their predecessors whom they consider to be degenerates. Certain of them even use their primitive companions as workers or as bait for hunting game.** Should I be angry with the Ama'argi? Have they not suffered enough? This wretched partnership is their life insurance. The Ama'argi no longer live in fear of being offered to or devoured by the Ušum. Be they greens, reds, or whites, they are the same; all are outside of the universal principles of the Source. For this reason, my group and I have greatly multiplied our efforts leading to a migration of the Ukubi to the great lands. Our specimens are now dispersing toward more secure countries. There they can live in peace.
I had heard enough... I understood now that the royal Gina'abul sowed terror on the entire planet thanks to their pressing a despotic enterprise. They secretly directed the genetic manipulations of our priestesses through the use of abject blackmail: to create and perpetuate life in exchange for their own survival. The Ukubi were the principal food chain of the Kingú and also a first rate manual worker. They were nothing more than Mášanše (beasts). We were very far from the idyllic image that we used to have of Uraš in the greater part of our colonies. Uraš was no longer under the exclusive care of the Life Designers, but rather under the authority of the royals. For how long? I had no idea; doubtless for a very long time... Among the Gina'abul royals, the strange Imdugud appeared the most pliable. I had just learned that they were associated with the Life Designers called Urmah.
For their part, the Kingú were using us as servants. We were nothing in their eyes, just good, docile, and efficient subjects. We were worth no more than the Ukubi. This new information changed, in my spirit, the course of events that were unfolding in the heavens.
That was quite much for a single day. I thought of the Nungal. We found ourselves from then on having to live among beings who were affiliated with the Babbar (albinos) and for whom my mother and I were fully responsible.
*As has been confirmed by archaeologists and paleontologists, West (today East) Africa is the great reserve of simians or monkeys on the planet. The region of Sinsal was the place where the Life Designers such as Nammu studied the simians, but it was also the holding area from which the Dragons procured manual workers and meat. [See Decoder.] Also see Fossils in Kenya Challenge Linear Evolution.
**This refers to the progressive extinction of Australopithecus and the growing dominance of Homo Erectus ca. 950,000 y.a.
Sigun Camp :
As "Mami" explained it, she chose Sigun as the place where the little band of refugees would establish their own colony and scientific experiment station, because the continent was totally free of Ukubi, those joyous hairy mammals that otherwise completely infested Uraš. It was true enough that these likable creatures with their tumultuous comportments would likely interfere with the experiments that the group was intending to undertake.
Mami had affection for them. One day she took one of the Gigirlah (shining wheels) on a day excursion to the east and returned with a young female Ukubi of petite stature. She named the creature Húlla (Happiness), and made her the colony's mascot.
The encampment was in the north, near the dense and humid jungle that covered the northern part of the continent. They had thrown together primitive shelter -- tents, made from materials that they found on their Gigirlah. Their food was taken from forest plants, which Nammu and Se'et knew well.
Immense herds comprised of innumerable herbivorous species ranged over the vast grassy and fertile plains.
In that epoch, the skies of Uraš were constantly overcast; the sun was never seen. Sa'am's morale suffered severely in the gloom, a thing that he had to try to hide from his entourage. But there were moments of relief when the Namlú'u, the guardians of Uraš, made their regular appearances.
