Legend of The Labyrinth. Lost or Lazy.?.

‘Tis sometimes and places said that Our memories are short. Probably cos… We were not listening. Our World Legends now has proof of this convoluted concept. In 1888 an eminent Scientist gave a round voice to a Discovery, that till then was twisted in Myth. Now… Legendary and in the Real. Since then,.. Silence… unbroken. Herein. Ancient Egypt. Ancient Legends+Tech. Modern Discovery. All… ignored. Be a mazed. Or not.

 

Professor Flinders Petrie let the Shovel slide. From his hand that is.

Golden-brown sand and soil trickled and frolicked about.

‘Twas done. By 1888.

 

The Storytellers from Our Past,..

those who retell Our World Legends All agreed.

 

It… was amazing.

 

(Music Link)

 

In particular the;..

Legend of The Labyrinth.

Lost or lazy.?.

Even if ignored…

 

… was no longer an excuse. For any and All. All

ignorance, superstition,.. experts or sceptics

otherwise of Science.

The Legendary Labyrinth was/is… in the Real. Here.

Beneath his Shovel. In the sands of Egypt.

Found… in 1888. Therein that is.

 

The Famed Labyrinth of Legends Egyptian of Yore.

Buried beneath the sands. Forgotten by most.

 

For reasons… unknown to i, Shiro…

and many others. The Authorities in charge of the

Antiquities and Excavations of the Lands of Ancient Egypt.

Have done…

lil’ digging therein and thereof.

 

Actually since. 1888…

that is. As well.

 

 

In 1888,..

Professor Flinders Petrie is recorded as having excavated the Labyrinth Entrance.

As well… as other things also.

Anything beyond that has… publicly never been revealed.

Lost or Ignored.?.

 

So our World Legends do say. Herein. A Web Browser Search.

Prof. Petrie, Herodotus the Ancient Scribe and i, Shiro…

too. Herein.

 

Light that Fire Pharaoh.

The seeming reluctance of many Modern Egyptologists in attempting to understand Ancient Tech and then to Mythologise the Legendary Writings of Our Ancestors…

the Ancient Scribes and Historians.

Does lil’ to dig out the inherent Truths so therein.

 

The Great Pyramid is no mystical Tomb to raid for Knowledge.

Ancient Tech. is what ’tis.

 

The nomen…

it’s very name… says it All.

 

 

Pyramid.

Pyr(e)amid(st).

A Fire… within.

 

The Great Pyramid is a… Volcano shaped.

Great Mountain sized;..

internally Fire driven. Water Volcano version thereof.

Water Pump. Pharaoh’s Pump… per se.

 

To Waters of Life… his Lands. Egypt. Of Yore. The Niles.

 

So Our World Legends do so and say. Therein.

 

When…AND if,..

You patently listen to those.

 

Sands of Times and Places, that is.

The Elements of Tech.

No Mystery, Gods or Extraterrestrials… needed at All.

Just Ancient Tech. Oft… Naturally,..

Elemental,.. my dear readers.

 

By Observing Natural Processes. Within Volcanoes. In this…

particular case. Swapping Lava for the Waters of Life.

Basically, Fire and Heat produce Steam under Pressure

if contained within a vessel that pipes in Water in some manner.

 

 

Further work by such Pressures can be achieved by adding.

In thinner Pipes and Processes after Pressure… Pressured Up.

Water can be Piped along Ways indeed.

In deed and in fact as well.

 

Gif and Photo Set above… set that scene… to dig…

alight. Ancient Tech. Elemental the norm… indeed.

Pharaoh’s Pump included therein as well. Herein.

 

Also,..

 

Members of the ancient giant needle construction crew it seems. photocredit/thanks:muhammadabdo

 

Herodotus…

walks the Egyptian Ways.

the various groups of Alchemists + co. oft credited.

Ancient Egypt for the Origins of their approaches to the Natural.

A School of Chemistry… concurs.

Elements therein and thereof… their Philosophical dreams.

 

So too Historian and Scribe Herodotus.

So enamored of Egypt and it’s Ways… he went to visit.

To… check out that scene.

 

To… dig around or so it seems.

 

photocredit/thanks:multivselena

 

To journey hence and thence go. To. A not so lil’ spot.

To a lil’ South.

Of the Pyramid Hawara his… destination. Final that is.

Some 2500 Years of Yore…

ago. Amazed he was.

 

The amazing Labyrinth…

was open to the Public per se…

back then. So then and Now.

 

Herodotus gasped.

 

(Music Link)

 

Loudly. Amazed. No digging required. At All. No Ways.

 

Would need to clear shifting sands… which hadn’t…

shifted yet… indeed and in fact… as well. The…

 

Welcome Mat… could still be seen. Therein.

 

Herodotus actual words…

 

after the great gasp above, were so amazing,..

he even remembered… them. Them that expressed as so :

“…greater than words could tell… all of the works and buildings of the Greeks put together would certainly be inferior to this labyrinth as regards labour and expense…” Therein… also.

 

Herodotus… Scribe of Yore. Seeker and Looker of the Labyrinth so lost and ignored. Our World Legends… as well. photocredit/thanks:studentportalen

 

Labor at the Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth was there for any and all Eyes to see.

 

Some 300 mtrs Long… some 250 mtrs Wide.

Twin-Storied… 3,000 Rooms…

Herodotus… does,..

 

go on and on. Amazingly. Herein. Below.

 

This Labyrinth of Our World Legends;..

“…has twelve covered courts – six in a row facing north, six south – the gates of the one range exactly fronting the gates of the other.

Inside, the building is of two storeys and contains three thousand rooms, of which half are underground, and the other half directly above them.

I was taken through the rooms in the upper storey, so what I shall say of them is from my own observation, but the underground ones I can speak of only from report, because the Egyptians in charge refused to let me see them, as they contain the tombs of the kings who built the labyrinth, and also the tombs of the sacred crocodiles.

The upper rooms, on the contrary, I did actually see, and it is hard to believe that they are the work of men; the baffling and intricate passages from room to room and from court to court were an endless wonder to me, as we passed from a courtyard into rooms, from rooms into galleries, from galleries into more rooms and thence into yet more courtyards.

The roof of every chamber, courtyard, and gallery is, like the walls, of stone.

The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade…”

The Labyrinth was of massive design. By design that is. Also.

The Main Roof… appears to be of One Solid Rock Piece.

 

Two Levels,… All rooms… 3,000 of them.!.

connected somehow and someways through a “… baffling and intricate…”

maze of pathways that led through all the above he saw.

 

Gallery, Room, Courtyard.

Repeat ad infinitum almost it seems indeed. In deed

and in fact. As well.

 

On his guided tour. Where he was not allowed… to see…

everything. Not All.

No Kings. No Crocs. No Tombs.

 

Though he seems otherwise,.. quite impressed. Nonetheless.

With what was left. To be seen.

 

Impressed enough.To write that and this. What

has become a Legend. Of a Legendary…

Labyrinth

Lazily Ignored or Lost.?.

1888.

 

Since… and thereof. Ancient Egypt. Therein.

Our World Legends.

Be One.

 

Be amazing… also.

Try not to get, too… lost.

 

Live Your Dreams.

 

 

 

Till next…

 

 

The Fallen. Look Up.

From All around Our World Legends they come. Their actions and deeds… enigmatic. Many names… are they called. Winged Gods, Bird-men, Tengu, Angels, Fire-birds and so forth. The Fallen. Herein. Their Lament. In prose. photocredit/thanks:wikimedia

Where this Mind… was.

i, Shiro.

 

A fleeting moment.

 

The Fallen.

Look Up.

(aka… Wings and Prayer. Clipped.)

 

Their weight was back… ON my Back.

Fast and fleeting.

 

Too fast in fact- then that… moment gone.

I… am back.

Here. Human.

 

This Body is of the Earth’s.

I… am not. Was not.

 

To see Home… I survey the Heavens.

I… need to- and do look… up.

So Our World Legends of Lore and Astronomy…

do so and say. Look up.

 

I,.. so… look up.

 

So… where am I.?.

 

Looking up.

Thus below.

 

Below the Heavens lies where and what;..

do Our World Legends so Tale to tell.?.

 

Tis where I am.

 

Here. Look up.

Below the Heavens tis so said…

 

…tis Hell.

Here. Below.

 

This… sentence then…

will end.

My Time then,.. will then come.

Saving the best till and for that moment of last.

 

Freedom back on my Back.

Wings. Unclipped.

 

Who I am.

Tengu. Angel. Fallen. Many names.

I am. So I think,..

so.

Tis then,.. till only then…

a fleeting moment will take.

 

Up.

Home.

 

Where this Heart… is.

Till next…

 

 

Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Quest Fail. Epic Heroes. Last Words.

Part Two. The Final and Epic… Adventures. Ancient Sumer’s Gilgamesh. Enkidu… also. Heroes. Both. Eternal Life.?. Neither. Quest Fail… yet still… Their Journey… ends herein. Our World Legends. Retold. In… Those Last Words.

 

(Music Link)

 

That Epic Legend of GILGAMESH and Enkidu is one of our Oldest Known…

Epics.

 

A Tale of Friends and Foe that crossed many boundaries.

 

The other or Reverse side of Tablet V of the Epic of Gilgamesh. Tis currently housed in the Sulaymaniyah Museum, Iraq. photocredit/thanks:wikimedia

 

‘Tween even Heaven and Earth.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

Quest Fail.

Epic Heroes…

… was/is a theme… later emulated.

Those-

Last Words…

hereof are of:..

An Epic… of two…

hopefully:

heroic… parts.

 

This is the Second… thereof and herein.

 

(…The First thereof… is therein.)

 

Sumer… Was… There map. photocredit/thanks:arthistorysummerize

 

(…Recapping… back to the Adventurous Beginning.)

 

SUMER is an olden Civilisation within the Modern Period of Times and Places known.

Many Firsts of Culture, Society, Arts and Tradition developed early in such Lands.

 

Afore that of Pharaonic Egypt… Sumer was.

A place… of Ancient and Olden Gods.

 

King Gilgamesh… was not a God…

…they say.

A Demi-God.

From those Lands of Sumer.

 

A Child thus born of Divinity and also of Earth.

A Parent from each of said realm.

So say these of Our World Legends.

 

Royal of Birth finding refuge and solace… in neither… btw.

Neither… either…

Eternal Life.

 

A Friend… he found.

Enkidu was named.

 

And went on… many many Adventures… with.

A Legendary… Pair of Heroes.

 

The Legendary Battle of Gilgamesh,.. Humbwaba… and Enkidu. photocredit/thanks:forumcommentsua

 

(…The Adventures Part Two: continue from herein down;..

The rest… the first,..

in a link above… can still,.. there be found.)

 

So:.. Adventuring On:

Just after the defeat of the Giant Guardian Humbwaba…

and so on and so forth.)

 

 

After that o so Divine victory and smack-down.

On the Friends… journeyed on.

 

I. Herein. Feel somewhat like…

 

Homeward Bound.?.

Sorta.?.

Home… for some R+R… first indeed.

 

Through and now beyond;..

they can Journey thru… to… the exit of;..

…the Cedar Forest Divine…

of these same Gods… also.

 

But no,.. tis won’t do.

 

No Journey thru.

It seems indeed.

Heading Home… the pair in Forest Divine…

turn… then leave.

 

Back.

Through… the Gate.

 

Through the Gate.  Nikko. Japan. The Sacred Mount. The Festival. The Temples. Herein. The Red Gate… as well.

 

Now… minus a Giant Gatekeeper.

Guardian… as well.

Called Humbwaba it seems… ’twas.

 

Till bent out of shape,.. by Friends… two.

Epic Heroes.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

Legendary deeds… indeed… done well.

 

Of course… now… the wheel turns…

what goes up… oft comes down…

 

hard.

So these Legends… sayeth.

For;..

The Gods,.. Eternal Life…

spoiler…Quest…FAIL:..

…Infernal Serpent.

…really means… Nearing the end of this Heroes Friends Tale.

Indeed.

 

Not the Serpent’s… Tail… that is.

 

That… is all together… another Tale…

to tell you of… that is.

 

Some Artwork of Mesopotamia… Sumer… Sumeria… Note the comparative size of… some of the Soldiers. Legendary Giants indeed. Herein. Also.

 

Returning home to a Heroes reception… wasn’t…

in their Destiny… nor Fates.

 

With Adventure coursing thru their Heroic… hands.

There is much they let slip thru… and then had to do.

To get back to…

 

those Olden Gods.

 

Spurning… and turning down Marriage Proposals.

Even One from the Goddess Divine Ishtar.

 

Bullfighting… a Bull.

Ishtar sent in… Desperate Revenge.

For saying No way Jose… to her…

 

feminine divinity that is.

 

‘Cept it was no way Ish…

Ta much, but… ta ta Ish and no ways, indeed it seems.

 

Sayonara… as well.

 

Lascaux Cave Painting.

 

For this deed of mismarriage misgivings.

Of concern for the Public’s Safety and Welfare.

 

Of running from the amores of Ish…

…and… then,..

Of running with the Bull

 

then Killing it.

 

Enkidu… was then… given…

a Death Sentence.

No Reward or get in free to Heaven Card…

either. Death Sentence. Fullstop.

 

Gilgamesh was sorta pardoned… a lil’.

(…No bull… that’s what Our World Legends sayeth.

Irrespective of my Waysward and atrocious Ancient Sumer…BTW.)

 

Examples of… Divine Justice Ways it seems.

Balanced, fair and blind Justice applied… tis said.

 

(…Fricken blind Gods too… if you ask i, Shiro.!. actually.)

 

Anyways:..

One Heroic Journey Ends;..

Yet still and Anyways… the Journeys on:

Still.

 

No longer a Heroic Pair of Adventurers.

Just… One.

 

Gilgamesh the king…

also Adventurer.

 

Who was now also… over… done.

 

See what L.u.c.i.f.e.r. and the Vatican Sky search the Heavens for.?. Herein. Intel. Legends. Research, Secret Archives… Well… Only One Photo… cos i, Shiro… am not really allowed… in.

 

With Grief, Unresolved Sexual Frustration, Several small Bull…

cuts, scrapes,.. grazes… as well.

But… the Deepest cut was.

Mainly Grief.

Mourning type therein.

 

For Enkidu… Friend and Compadre Adventuree.

Fellow Hero of Humbwabe Humbling Incident.

 

No… not the fricken Bull…

Nor that o so Divine… and Revengeful Ish.

Ta very much…

therein either.

 

So these Legends say.

 

Utterly… Tyrannical… about such going ons.

Livid… too.

Guardians… More…

on these Ways…

For:

Gilgamesh made a beeline for… the Old Man of the Mountain.

 

As any… well informed Adventurer… would have…

done… if they changed their Mind…

and Objectives… as well.?.

 

This… Old Man.

Who had Giant Scorpions… as Gatekeepers.

 

A pair of them.

Of course he did.

 

Also… as Guards.

 

Luckily,.. fortuitously even.

They could speak… Ancient Sumer.

So they… did.

 

Outnumbered and inconsolable… almost.

Gilgamesh too… joined in.

Speaking of and in Sumer… that is.

 

(Video Link)

 

 

After a thorough and utter speakfest and archaic set of introductions.

One of the Scorpions stung… with these words;..

 

…Pass… on and over… o… King 2/3 Divine.

Your needs and wants… dire it seems indeed.

Pass on and over;..

 

The Mountain.

 

(Music Link)

 

Down to the River…

of Death that is…

ahead.

To the Old Man thereof… go ahead Gilga…

… down and up that Ways.

Go thru and beyond… those Ways and then…

there.

The Ancient Sumer Scorpion Speaker… sayeth.

Whilst pointing with it’s armored barb.

 

The other… stayed silent… now. And nodded… too…

two or 3 times indeed. It’s barb… though just as armored…

did not move a Ways it seems.

 

Gilgamesh finally… getting his Ways…

cleared out.

Gets back into Hero Mode:..

moved thru… their Gate.

 

Firstly… and then only.

Cos… they stayed behind…

him. At the Gate.

 

Now unguarded…

 

and thus Gilgamesh-also Unharmed by such pleasant,..

though malevolent of appearance Guardians.

Stops… and stands still.

 

He still… needed a rest.

 

Legendary Longevity… well… Ways to Sleep anyways. Egyptian Pharaoh style. Good Health Tips Galore. Long List. Herein.

 

As his further Blind Luck would still have and hold it.

An… Inn… was in,..

just still… in …sight. With a light out front,..

still… on.

 

‘Cept… he could not… still

get in.

The Inn… indeed,..

in deed or in fact… either.

 

Cos… he looked like…

last years fashion… throwaways… still.

I think… it sayeth therein… in Sumer Ancient thereof.

 

(…Still… learning the Ancient slang… thereof and therein… as well.)

Anyways:..

 

The Inn… he wanted to … get in… of.

Strict Dress Code it seems.. thereof,..

therein… the Inn. Also.

Strict Dress Code.

 

No heroes welcome… on their mat.

Out front… under the light… still on.

Still.

 

Gilgamesh’s Attire… was less than Heroic… indeed it seems. In deed… and in fact too. Even the Tavern Manageress… agrees. No getting in… this Inn… no matter… you’re Heroic Deeds… prior. … A reproduction… NOT the actual Gilgamesh gear here… 😎

 

Legends don’t actually say… Gilgamesh wore one.

A Dress that is…

though he had an address.

Sumer. Ancient of.

 

Anyways;..

After however pleading unremittingly…

and grievingly… even mournfully…

and sorrowfully with the Tavern Manageress.

 

She… still…

tells him.

Where to go.

 

To be able to find the Ferryman.

To get to the… other side.

Over the River of Death.

 

To see Enkidu.

In a ship… wreck of a Ferry,.. that is.

 

(Music Link)

 

Cos Gilgamesh… totalled it.

Out of spite…

and out of the Water as well.

Cos the Boatman wasn’t there… yet.

 

Then had to repair it… indeed. In deed and in fact…

too.

When the Boatman got there… a lil’ later.

Hero.

 

(…who of us Lesser Mortals… understands their… amazing… Ways…)

 

The Boatman… is a lil’ different.

Somewhat and still… a lil’ enigmatic… seems right herein.

As compensation for the Boatride of and over Death…

River.

Doesn’t accept…

sayeth no Ways to Cash or Cheque… even.

 

No Swipe Machine Doohickey mentioned… either.

He simply… and plainly,.. even tiredly;..

expects Gilgamesh to stay awake.

 

For one whole week. A week. Awake. Gilgamesh.

 

Feeling somewhat less than refreshed after his Night in…

at the Inn… on the outside…

cos he was not dressed up enough to get in.

The Inn… on the inside and so on and so forth and back to front…

as well…. also.

 

Gilgamesh… of course…

slept like a Hero.

On a log…

 

every day. A week. Asleep.

 

A Log… to Sleep like. …NOT the actual log… nor Gilgamesh… eitha.

 

With no payment heroically forthcoming…

Gilgamesh naturally… was not going.

Anywhere near the River… across that is.

Nor over… either…

at All.

 

Adventuring almost… done… and over with.?. then.?.

 

But wait… there’s more…

just a lil… moreish… to come.

‘Cept… not over the River Death it seems.

Nor across… it.

 

 

As a parting gift, the Old Man… and Woman of the Mountain too.

Gift Give.

 

An Underwater Plant… that rejuvenates.

A… Plant Lotion.?.

Restoring to youth… the heroic suppleness that age…

does take etc etc etc.

Some sorta… green and fancy skin-lotion perhaps.?.

 

They… then parted…

Ways… and Means… here.

 

With the Old Woman of the Mountain.

 

A Plant… the Gift of Giving… NOT the actual Gilgamesh Plant Rejuvenator… Plant.

 

Gilgamesh and the Older gent… Adventured on…

some more.

Back Over the Mount.

Another pair of… Heroes.

 

Trekking and turning.

Journey back on… back home that is.

 

Till Gilgamesh got… sore feet.

Yep… Adventuring takes it’s toll.

Even on Heroes.

 

Spying a Pond… that wasn’t a Mirage.

Gilgamesh gets very wet.

Tired… as well.

All that splashing about etc etc.

 

Nap time for the Adventurous duo.

Bad idea.

 

No idea…

how… but they… were not alone.

At All.

 

Legendary… Atomic and… Serpentine Lies. Herein. Armageddon. Already… arranged it seems.

 

A sslippery sslithering and possibly sslimy Sserpent wass… around.

Wandering… and then alsso… wondering;..

what thosse pair of Heroess… where Wandering around for.

 

And sso on  and sso… forth.

Ssticking it’s flared and non-exisstent nosstrilss…

into ssome Heroic Bussiness and goingss on.

 

Nap time… aka… Ssleep time.

 

(… A Vacancy for a Nap time Intruder Alert and Security Personnel Position came open there…

for a lil’ while… 😉  … and a non-slimy somewhat divine Proofreader… herein just now… alsso.)

 

(Music Link)

 

In that short short… lil’while… actually.

The Sentry less State of Affairs and less than sensitive Serpent…

grabbed the Plant of Youth Given… and sslithered off.

Fast. Quick… Hands on.?.

 

(…WTFrick… GRAB.?. Serpents have Hands.?.

o… of course… only the Legendary and Divine that is.

Anyways,.. the Tale goes on…

the Tail of the Serpent… too… a lil…)

 

Quickly… too. Too quickly…

for either Adventurer to wake up and issue a cease and desist.

 

Ways too quick it seems indeed. In deed and in fact… also.

Quicker than a flick of the tongue.

The Plant… is whisked away… for another Legend.

Tis hinted why… such Snakey Coats… be shed per se.

 

After over-sleeping and after seeing

as how his cookies and World… have crumbled.

Hero does too.

 

Gilgamesh… is Woe… at the mo…

 

Gilgamesh is fully done… and over with… now.

Rant time Hero now… as well.

 

Heroic Rant indeed.

Freedom of speech invoked.

Several Times therein.

Some shouting and angry words… thrown to the Winds.

And at the Olden Gods and some other stuff etc etc.

 

Some crying too.

 

Tis it seems… Rant Time Herein. Lists and hisses.

 

Things and happenings and circumstances and all that Woe stuff.

Of me…

well… him actually. Gilgamesh.

 

Adventurer.

Quest Fail Hero.

Enkidu… as well.

 

Long may such Journeys… survive.

Long may Legendary Knowledge… survive also.

 

…Time… to Walk on Water… it seems indeed. Herein. The Ninja Legends. Lil’ Miracles explained… a lil’.

 

This-

Tale of the Serpent’s Tail…

has a soft sting indeed.

In fact as well.

For us all.

 

A Tale/Lesson to tell.

Many Facets.

Many Adventures.

Ups n Downs. Cycles. Circles. Emotions.

 

We… All are on Our Life Journey.

Long or not.

Tis Our… Life Adventure… Our Dreams.

We… live it.

 

Friends can make it, so more… Epic.

 

Still… and so:..

Our Journey of Life’s Dreams, here then:..

Starts and…

 

Ends.

 

The Legendary Survival Village… tis just ahead. Herein. Our World Legends Retold.

 

Our World Legends. Be One.

Be like… Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

 

 

Be… Heroic…

in that… You do.

 

Princess Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum… MISSING… since March 4th…2018… MISSING still. Her Own Legend… seems still in the making. Herein. Some Recent news indicates… her whereabouts remain unknown. This Princess… is missing.
