#8 - ANU DEFEATS ALALU, BANISHES HIM TO MARS WITH ANZU
[Essay 8 by Sasha Lessin, Ph.D.]
Based on Z. Sitchin's Lost Book of Enki (historical fiction), in turn based on Sitchin's Earth Chronicles, meticulously documented empirical research.
Anu, Enlil and Ea drew lots. Anu drew the lot for rule of Nibiru. Enlil drew Command of Earth. Ea drew responsibility on Earth for Seas, Mining and Lands beyond the Straits of Gibraltar.
No sooner did Anu and his sons divide rule of Nibiru and Earth, then.......
"Forward toward Anu Alalu stepped, shouted, Mastery of Earth to me was allotted; that was the promise when the gold finds to Nibiru I announced! Nor have I the claim to Nibirus throne forsaken." [Sitchin, Z., The Lost Book of Enki, page 93]
Anu wrestled Alalu. They grappled. [Sitchin, The Wars of Gods and Men, page 86]
"Anu on the chest of Alalu with his foot pressed down, victory in the wrestling thereby declaring, I am King"
But when Anu lifted his foot from Alalu, "swiftly he the manhood of Anu bit off, the malehood of Anu Alalu did swallow.!" [Sitchin, The Wars of Gods and Men, page 94]
Enlil tied Alalu up while Ea gave Anu first-aid. "Alalu," Anu groaned, "will slowly die from my seed." *
Anu condemned the sickened and doomed Alalu to spend his last days on Mars.
Anu condemned Alalu to spend his last days on Mars. Anu, on his return to Nibiru, dropped Alalu on Mars, with food and tools. Anu also left Alalu's kinsman, Anzu--the interplanetary pilot Ea had discharged--to tend Alalu as Alalu died on Mars.
NINMAH, ENROUTE TO EARTH, SAVES ANZU ON MARS, STARTS MARSBASE
When Anu arrived back on Nibiru, he told the Council his plans for gold hunting throughout the solar system. He ordered continuous freight rockets to and from Earth. Rockets will shuttle among way-stations on Mars, Earths Moon, other planets and satellites between Nibiru and the sun.
King Anu sent his daughter Ninmah with female health officers to Earth. Stop, said the King, on the way, at Mars. If Anzu lives, give him men to start a base there.
On Mars Ninmah found Alalu and Anzu dead. It was too late for the condemned Alalu, but Ninmah revived Anzu.
To commemorate Alalu who discovered the gold that can save Nibiru, Ninmah and Anzu, "The image of Alalu upon the great rock mountain [Cyndonia] with beams they carved. They showed him wearing an eagle's helmet; his face they made uncovered." [Sitchin, Z., The Lost Book of Enki, page 104].
Before she left Mars for Earth, Ninmah gave Anzu twenty of the astronauts from her company and ordered him to build the first way station for the gold freighters.
* In the later Hittite version of this tale, Anu appointed Alalu's grandson, Kumarbi his cupbearer (as Alalu had appointed Anu to be his cupbearer). Anu took Kumarbi to Earth to watch him. In the Hittite version, Kumarbi bit Anu's penis. Anu then forced Kumarbi to swallow poisonous stones but Kumarbi managed to spit them out.
Kumarbi visited Ea/Enki, his sister's husband on Earth. But on Earth, Enlil's younger son, Adad/Teshub incited Kumarbi. Adad bragged how he and big brother Ninurta would get privileges of knowledge and power Kumarbi wouldn't. Ea took Kumarbi in a rocket for Nibiru to plead with Lama, the ancestress of both Alalu's and Anu's lines, for mediation. But Lama, when she learned Enlil's sons opposed Enki's mission, sent "lightening winds" against Ea's spacecraft and forced him and Kumbari back to Earth.
Kumbari returned to Mars Base and agitated among the Igigi (astronauts). They attacked Enlil and his people on Earth. Seventy of Enlil's men flew aircraft against Kumarbi and the Igigi. They defeated Kumarbi but Ullikumi, Kumarbi's son by one of the female astronauts, rallied the Igigi again. 380,00 years ago, Ullikumi (Filling the role of Anzu in the Sumerian account) led the Igigi as they attacked the "whirlbirds" of the Enlilites. Enlilite champions Ninurta and Adad defeated Ullikumi and the astronauts.
Sitchin identifies the battles between Alalu and his descendants the basis basis for later Indian tales of battles the Indira vs Vrita fight even later Greek tales of the Titans vs Gods War. Indira/Vrita and Titan/Zeus are based on the Anzu/Ninurta and Adad tale the Nibirans dictated to the Sumerians. [Sitchin, Z., 1985,The Wars of Gods and Men, pages 91 -101
Story So Far
On the planet Nibiru, the long-orbiting (it came near Earth every 3,600 Earth-years) tenth planet of our solar system, there dwelt 450,000 years ago, a technologically highly-evolved civilization of humans. Nibirans were seven to nine feet tall. Their skulls elongated at the occiput. They enjoyed advanced computer, engineering and rocket technology. They had even nuked other. Then all united under AN, a single king. They developed less lethal ways to settle succession to kingship: lot-drawing and wrestling.
Nibiru’s atmosphere decayed and An’s descendent, King ANU, sent goldminers to Earth. On Earth, 300,000 years ago, the foremost Nibiran scientist, ENKI (called Ea when he lived on Nibiru), grafted and inseminated DNA from his genome and his son NINGISHZIDDA, as well as the DNA of his sister NINMAH, wife DAMKINA and sister-in-law, NINLIL, on devolved Homo Erectus humans in South Africa to create us Homo Sapien slaves. Enki programmed us biologically and psychologically to mine, garden, war, build, keep records and--domestically and sexually-- serve the Nibirans on Earth and ultimately to worship them as gods. The "gods", addicted to status-competition, addicted us also to compete, divide racially, religiously and linguistically and to endure male rule. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
SUCCESSION TO RULE BY LOT OR WRESTLING, NOT WAR
Enki says rivalry on Nibiru evolved from nuclear war to DRAWING STRAWS or WRESTLING. Nibirans--before they went back to missiles--drew lots and wrestled to see who’d reign.
"After eons of time [0n Nibiru] our own species sprouted, by our own essence an eternal seed to procreate. As our numbers grew, to many regions of Nibiru our ancestors spread. Some tilled the land, some four-legged creatures shepherded.
"Rivalries occurred, encroachments happened; clashes occurred, sticks became weapons. Clans gathered into tribes, then two great nations each other faced. The nation of the north against the nation of the south took up arms. What was held by hand to thrusting missiles was turned. Weapons of thunder and brilliance increased the terror. A war, long an fierce, engulfed the planet; brother amassed against brother. There was death and destruction both north and south. For many circuits [3,600 Earth-year orbits of Nibiru around Solaris] desolation reigned the land; all life was diminished.
"A truce was declared; then peacemaking was conducted. Let the nations be united, the emissaries said to one another; let there be one throne on Nibiru, one king to reign over all. Let a leader from the north or from south by lot to be choosen, one king supreme to be. If he be from north, let south choose a female to be his spouse. Let their firstborn be the successor; let a dynasty thus be formed, unity on Nibiru forever to establish."
KingAN, who united Nibiru, created a military dictatorship--hierarchical male-centered, patrilineal. "By lots was he chosen; his decrees in unity were accepted. For his abode he built a splendid city AGADE [Unity] was its name. Governors for each land he appointed; restoration and reclamation was their task."
Since the nuclear wars killed many more men than women, An had men take principle and secondary wives, official concubines too. An's dynasty set The Law of Succession: THE KING'S HEIR, A SON HE HAS WITH HIS HALF SISTER--THE PRINCIPAL WIFE--RULES WHEN THE KING DIES. This law plagues Earth to this day[Sitchin, Z., 2002, The Lost Book of Enki, pages 25-26; Tellinger, M., 2006, Slave Species of god, page 98].
500, 000 years ago, Nibiru’s protective shield weakened. The thick atmosphere thinned. This created the impetus for the Nibirans to sent miners to Earth for gold to powder Nibiru’s air with golddust, save their atmosphere, and keep the heat they needed. [Tellinger, M., 2006, Slave Species of god, page 88]
By the reign of Enshar, sixth king after An, "Nibiru’s air has thinner been made, the protective sheild diminished." scientists warned. Enshar’s successor, Duuru begat no sons so the Council of Counselors elevated Duuru’s adopted son, Lahma to the throne.
To King Lahma, "In the councils of the learned, to heal the breach in the atmosphere there were two suggestions.
(1)"Use gold, within the Hammered Belt[Asteroids] abundant. To finest powder, gold could be ground, lofted high to heaven, suspended it could remain. With replenishment, the breach it would heal. Let celestial boats [rockets] the gold to Nibiru bring over.
(2) "Let weapons of Terror [nukes] be created, the missiles the volcanoes to attack, their dormancy to bestir, their belching to increase, the atmosphere to replenish, the breach to make disappear."
Every 3,600 years, Nibiru, as it orbited the Sun, lost more oxygen. Lahma vacillated for four orbits (204,000 Earth years) as to whether to nuke the volcanoes to renew the air or send miners to the Asteroids. While he pondered, Nibiru’s air bled into space.[Sitchin, Z., The Lost Book of Enki pages 32 - 33]
PRINCE ALALU KILLS NIBIRU'S KING LAHMA
Prince Alalu, descended from Nibiru’s forth king, Anshurgal (and a concubine) confronted the King atop the palace's highest tower. We need a king who acts now. Not you; you dither while we all die. I'm taking over now, before we lose what's left of our atmosphere. Alalu hurled Lahma from the tower, then proclaimed himself King of Nibiru.
ALALU GIVES DAUGHTER TO EA FOR FEALTY FROM ANU
Anu, a prince descended from King An’s youngest son (Enuru) declared he, not Alalu, should succeed Lahma. But Alalu told Anu, Wed our children--my daughter Damkina; your son Ea; I rule and civil war we forestall. Anu agreed; he canceled the betrothal his daughter Ninmah had proclaimed with Ea. Instead of Nimah, Ea wed Damkina [Sitchin, Z., 2010, There Were Giants Upon the Earth, page 249].
Ninmah pined for Ea, but sought solace in sex with her (and Ea’s) half-brother Enlil, a dashing military man. When Ninmah bore Enlil’s son Ninurta, Papa Anu angrily forbade her marriage to anyone ever.
Enlil, who before the Anu-Alalu marriage deal, would, by the Nibiran Succession Law, have succeeded Anu as Nibiru’s king, lost his claim to the throne. The first male born of Ea and Damkina, Anu and Alalu agreed, would rule Nibiru and bring together the descent lines of both grandfathers, Alalu and Anu.
Ea and Damkina had a boy, Marduk. The pact between Anu and Alalu pledged Marduk–not Enlil, would one day rule Nibiru. Deal in place, Anu pledged fealty to Alalu. Alalu, now acknowledged as King, made Anu his Cupbearer. [Sitchin, Z., The Wars of Gods and Men, 1985, page 84]
