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.

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 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.

Where this Heart… is.

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.

‘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.

 

Till next…

 

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

Sumer is an Ancient Land. A Land where Legend says Men, Women and Gods… mixed freely, sometimes joyously it seems. Though not for our Heroes in Shiro’s latest seek and search. GILGAMESH. ENKIDU.

SUMER is one of of Oldest Civilisations within the Modern Period.

Many Firsts of Society and Tradition developed in these Lands.

 

Before that of Pharaonic Egypt… Sumer was.

A place… full of the Olden Gods.

 

King Gilgamesh himself… was not an Olden God…

…they say.

A Demi-God… he was.

From Sumer.

 

A Child of Divinity and of Earth.

A Parent from each realm.

So Our World Legends, say.

 

He found refuge and solace… in neither… btw.

 

A Friend however… he found.

Enkidu.

 

 

The Olden Gods.

 

The Legends say the Olden Gods were… here Before us.

The Legends say the Olden Gods were… Larger than Life.

The Legends are too,.. oft obscure… from Whence they came.

 

  • Pre-dynastic.
  • Larger.
  • Origins… unknown.

 

?Unknown… it seems… and Our World LEGENDS.?. Herein. photocredit/thanks:pinterest

 

A… GREAT GOD… So the LEGENDS say. BIG…FEET too it seems indeed. photocredit/thanks:kistineru

 

Pre-dynastic.

Larger.

Origins… unknown.

 

Modern Science says:..

…In the Pre-Dynastic Times;..

The Tombs and Graves of Upper Egypt contained…

 

“…Anatomical remains of a People whose Skulls were of a greater size and whose bodies were larger than those of the Natives…”

…and whose;…

…Racial Origin… is unknown and the Route they took in their penetration of Egypt equally obscure…

  • Pre-dynastic.
  • Larger.
  • Origins… unknown.

Olden Gods… found it seems,.. Shiro style.

In Egypt… and Sumer.

 

The historical importance of this GIANT fact lies in recognising that in another of our early civilisations:..

The SAME UNKNOWN RACE Was There From The EARLIEST TIMES;..

…for…

 

“…People allied in type to the Big-headed Pre-Dynastic Egyptians are to be found buried in the Early Sumerian graves of Mesopotamia…”

Olden Gods get and got around… so these Legends say.

 

Our World Legends oft call these such… the Gods and Goddesses… photocredit/thanks:gk12

 

The Kutha TabletsLEGEND OF CREATION ” which appears originally recorded in the Chaldean/Babylonian city of Kutha at it’s Temple of Sitlam in the Sanctuary of the Sumerian GOD NERGAL;..

…tells further and more of a Race of Divine Warrior Demons; of –

Gilgasmashmesh… meet Enkidu.

 

Friends meet,.. greet… and beat.

Each other senseless.

 

Once such Legendary introductions were complete…

and wounds incurred started to Heal.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu achieved Friend Status.

For Life.

 

Till Death… anyways.

 

Legends indeed,..

in deed and in fact… too.

 

 

Having taught Gilgamesh… some sort of Lesson…

…Gilgamesh became a lot nicer.

A soon and now respected King… Demi-God and Adventurer… also.

Semi-divine.

 

The… friendly… Battle,.. was in itself epic.

Both were evenly matched.

Both at their prime per se.

The Legends indicate strength, fitness, prowess…

…even male martial beauty of these Heroes… two.

 

Though touted as a Wildman sort,..

… Legendary Enkidu…

was not just that methinks.

 

(…Keep in Mind… here… He,.. Enkidu was sent by the Olden Gods upon requests…

…repeated requests… from the surrounding Populace;..

re K. Gilgamesh and antics associated… with a then, corrupt,..

in body and soul… utter Tyrant… of a person…)

Anyways…

And onto… also;..

 

Herein. Tis D.U.M.B.,.. Under… Your feet it seems.

 

His name itself.?.

Enki…du

Enki.?.

 

A very very Olden God of Sumer… that is.

Ancient… even.

 

One of the Oldest recorded in Our World Legends btw.

Enkidu seems to be a Strong-man, Fighter, War Combatant and such like… Prior.?.

Matches K. Gilgamesh for Battle strength, Strategy and so forth during their tussle.

 

Took their first meet n greet Fight to a good draw…

which K. Gilgamesh was rather surprised about… indeed.

 

May,.. too… maybe.?.

…no-one else stood up to him before etc.?.

An utter Tyrant… he was.

 

So the Legends say… prior… anyways.

Friends… now.

 

Battles of Enkidu and Gilgamesh. photocredit/thanks:wikimedia

 

Anyways…

Adventures of…

Gilgamesh and Enkidu continue to resonate,..

…go on… as well.

 

Seeking Truthful answers to… Life questions,..

…the Friends sought out… a Journey to the Gods.

Of course. Heroes. Frick.

 

By trekking across some very interesting Landscapes indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… also.

 

Being 2/3rds Divine was actually… no help to Gilgamesh.

Neither was his King…liness… and so on.

He was…

…prior to being so humbled… a Tyrant.

Who cared lil’.

 

An… utter,.. utter Tyrant it seems.

 

Gilgamesh. photocredit/thanks:wikimedia

 

Ill tempered, brash, ignoble, rapacious and so forth.

 

Tyrannical… as well.

Main reason… the People and the Gods sent Enkidu etc etc.

Now though… a different stripe colored his tales.

A changed Man… King… also.

 

Seeking Wisdom… they first sought out… their Dreams.

Divine… or not.

Gilgamesh’s Dream it seems… To…

Dreamland.?. No…

…To Timberland it seems.

 

So onward the Heroes Enkidu and Gilgamesh trek.

To a Cedar Forest… of Trees… that is.

Seen in a… Dream.

Not Enkidu’s.

 

 

(Music Link)

 

Why.?. Cos’ was… in Gilgamesh’s…

Dream…

…to do just that.

 

Why… the Quest.?.

… The Journey to the Olden Gods.?.

 

Eternal Life was WANTED BADLY…

a Theme that runs through this epic Epic.

 

Eternal Life… per granted by… the Olden Gods.

 

Both Friends New… knew this… that too.

Life… begets Death.

Tis… do. So…

 

Only the Gods… seem otherwise.?.

… Gilgamesh was 2/3 Divine;.. …so.?.

 

…tis a short step he sought… or so…

…he thought. Enkidu… also adventurously…

concurred.

 

Eager… and thus and now,.. full of Adventure.

…or booze… or something.?.

 

Journey on. To… The Forest.

Cedar.

And… belonging to the… Olden Gods.

 

Friends may… forth… go.

 

Journey… to the Tree of Life. Herein. The Legends. Philosopher’s Stones. In Shiro’s Hands. Yours.?. perhaps… also. Our World Legends.

 

The God’s Forest Gatekeeper.!.

…is a…God given… and sent…

…Giant Sentry Robot.?.

 

‘Twas here… the Heroes had a problem.

Enkidu, arriving at the Forest… didn’t want to go…

on thru that is.

 

Being nil Divine… Enkidu…

had no pressing reason to seek answers… from the Gods.

He liked Adventure,.. had met a Friend on his Journey;..

and was doing… just…

…well…

 

more of just that. Being Adventurer.

 

So… taking on the Evil Oversized Mountain Tall Sentry Robot Terror Thingy that is and was the…

Olden God’s Forest Gatekeeper.

The GIANT Guardian Humbwaba:..

wasn’t part of the Deal…

 

for him.

Bar… humbug to that… that is… it seems…

he sayeth… as well.

So he,.. Enkidu… just… sat there.?.

it seems indeed. In deed and in fact… also.

Sat… and stared.

 

So these Legends say about their Sumer Journey Ways:..

though now… my Olden Ancient Sumer… Lil’ atrocious btw… too.

 

Well… anyways;..

 

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

 

Well… anyway;.. til he saw his Friend.

Fighting for his Life… and Dreams.

Answers… as well.

With Giant Forest Guardian Humbwaba.

 

So… in he joined.

 

Indeed. In fact… also.

Standing together.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

 

The Fight… Club together… Friends paired now formed.

The Giant Battle Terror of Robot Sentry Humbwaba… begun anew.

And won… also.

Hard and well fought ’twas…

probably took even longer than to read this methinks.

 

In the Forest of the God’s.

Battle lines drawn… then erased.

 

By Friends… who became Giant Killers.

A World Legendary pair.

Heroes. Epic.

Heroes over Humbwaba.

 

That Giant Guardian would guard… no more.

 

World changing Ideas… cost lil’ at times it seems. Interest ed. Herein.

 

(Music Link)

 

Now also thru and thru,..

… sorta tired and sleepy.

‘Tis time for another of those dreamy Dreams…

…in…

 

A Divine Cedar Forest it seems indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… too.

So the Legends say.

 

Then… refreshed and with new Questions.

The Pair of…

Friends. Journey on.?.

…Victory.?.

or Bursting Bubbles.?.

… ’tis… on that Horizon it seems.

 

More so now, than…

just their simple Dreams.

 

After that o so Divine victory and smack-down.

On the Friends… journeyed on…

 

Herein. Feel like…

 

Gilgamesh and Enkidu.

The Adventures continue on.

Then End.

 

Coming soon… Those Last Words.

Part Two… due tis next and this soonish.

 

Adventure… ends.

See You then too.

 

Herein. Recent news thus indicates… whereabouts still unknown. The Princess… is missing… still,.. it seems indeed.

 

Till next…

 

When Dinosaurs were Pets. 4000 B.C.

Creating Statuary has long been a pastime of many. Having Pets… also. Finds in the Civilisations of Yore back up this view. Most of the Time that is. A long lost Culture reappraised in the Modern gives… pause… for thought indeed. So called extinct Animals… along with their Pets… too. Join Shiro as he seeks and searches Our World Legends… to see what the Ancestors… saw.

 

Our Pets are special… to each of us.

Whether we have one… or a menagerie full.

 

Local Laws play their part in such processes.

Exotic Pets per se oft perused carefully re above.

 

So imagine…

…the Red Tape,..

 

…the Bureaucratic Bungles and more;..

When Dinosaurs were Pets.

4000 B.C.

… seems a good Year herein indeed…

…to chase Our Pets back in Time.

 

Back to Times of Yore.

 

A Legend. Herein. Survival.

 

Science is full of… Facts and Theories.

Sometimes they match Our World Legends.

 

When they do not… OOPARTS are created.

Data and Objects… out of sync with time.

 

Appears oft. as an explanation:..

…that the dating system somewhere, somewhen, somehow…

…out of whack.

 

In Our Legends… or the Sciences thereof etc etc.

Herein… another it seems indeed.

 

Go on… ASK THE RIGHT QUESTION. Herein.

 

History and Herstory…

…of Statuary.

 

The Creation and making of Statuary began with Wood and Stone.

Sculpting.

Many Cultures and Civilisations celebrated such Art.

Many of us… too.

 

 

Art Subjects of such Statuary are as varied as the Cultures and Traditions therein above.

Pets a common theme or feature.

 

Egyptian Cats.

The Gods Eagles and crows… their wings too.

Horses, bulls, cows, dogs and more.

 

In 4000 B.C.,.. add Dino’s to that list.

 

ACAMBARO… MEXICO. The Valley. photocredit/thanks:mexicoenfotos

 

The Lands of Mexico are of an Ancient Place.

Sacred Sites and those of Legend abound… around.

 

Acámbaro Valley is dry, arid… now.

The surrounding Highlands subject to long dessication and erosion.

The Valley Lake… gone… along with the End of the Ice Age.

 

‘Twas in Yore… An Ancient place.

Of Lake shore-front and Woodland surrounds.

It’s Peoples… long gone.

Archaeological remains… all that remain.

 

Acambaro Mapped. photocredit/thanks:weatherforecast

 

The Ancient Acts of Acámbaro.

 

In 1944 therein… an Ancient Burial Site was unearthed.

Containing some… 32,000 Artefacts and Objects.

Jade, Obsidian and Ceramics in the main.

 

German Archaeologist Waldemar Julsrud excavated the site.

Very near a prominent and famous Landmark;..

…Cerro del Toro. The Hill of the Bull.

 

The Radio Carbon Testing by Dr. Froelich Rainey in the Univ. of Pennsylvania Labs indicated some 6,000 Years of Aging.

Thermoluminescence Pottery Dating similar result.

Teeth found nearby deemed by Paleontologist Dr. George Gaylord Simson to be that of the Ice Age Horse.

 

Overall indications = 4000 B.C.

Some Time ago indeed it seems.

Some 6000 years of yore.

Modern Dinosaur Representations. photocredit/thanks:frencsrebloghu

 

Pet Lovers… extraordinaire.

 

Prof. Charles H. Hapgood,.. of History and Anthropology;..

Univ. of New Hampshire took the time…

…some 18 years worth of time… to study the site.

 

One of his papers on the Subject…

Also… had this to say:

… These people had close relationships with animals. We see them petting their dogs, riding wild horses or llamas without saddle or bridle, embracing large monkeys or apes and having loving relationships with reptiles. It seems possible from some of the figurines that they actually domesticated reptiles, as well as anteaters and other mammals. They are shown in friendly relations,..

…identified with animals in a way that we do not.

 

Pet rapport indeed,..

…in deed and in fact… too.

 

(…Full Title of Prof. Hapgood Paper is as follows:..

…” Mystery in Acambaro: An Account of the Ceramic Collection of the late Waldemar Julsrud in Acambaro, G.T.O., Mexico. “…)

 

Statuary from ACAMBARO. photocredit/thanks:wikipedia

 

The collection of Statuary unearthed at Acámbero included many Ceramic Figurines.

Of Pets, Animals, Mammals, Reptiles…

…and Dinosaurs.

 

Of several Types.

 

More from the Statuary of ACAMBARO. photocredit/thanks:atlasobscura

 

Having Dino… over for Dinner…

and not… as Dinner…

…of either… as far as can be seen.

Whilst Science in silence may ponder their… pet Theories;..

…the reality of the Pet Statuary finds of Acámbaro,..

…leave lil’ room for doubting.

 

The Ancient Peoples of Mexico either had great imaginative and scientific Modern Minds,.. knowing well in advance what Dinosaurs looked like…

…or they saw what they say…

…and created in their Ceramica.

 

Dinosaurs.

In 4000 B.C.

Acámbaro, Mexico.

 

Still some more Statuary of ACAMBARO. photocredit/thanks:crepanelmuroblogspot

 

Science Time-lines…

…ways too tight… also…

…these Legends seem to say indeed.

 

Did remnants of those we call Dinosaurs live on…

…a lil’ more than Science thinks.?.

 

Would indeed explain… many OOPARTS.?.

Many strange Creature sightings… too.

 

Many Legends… and questions… also.

 

Noted Science Writer Carl Sagan,.. in his book;..

The Dragons of Eden

forthrightly posed this very question:..

 

…Could there have been manlike Creatures who actually encountered Tyrannosaurus Rex?

Could there have been Dinosaurs that escaped the extinctions in the Late Cretaceous Period?..

 

Selection of Statuary of ACAMBARO. photocredit/thanks:creationsciencestudy

 

Letting the Statuary… speak.

 

Dinosaurs, Man, Woman… walked together.

For a short time it seems… we could seem to say.

Of Yore… long ago.

 

Memorialised in stone indeed,.. in deed and in fact… too.

 

In Mexico.

4,000 B.C.,.. or thereabouts.

 

An Ancient Place.

A place where Dinosaurs… became Our Pets.

Acámbaro.

 

So these Legends do say.

Walk on… and in…

… the footsteps of Giants indeed.

 

Our World Legends… too.

 

Walk on.

LEGENDS of GIANTS tend to put some Scientists on edge it seems. On the knife-edge of TRUTH… that is. Thus too in the SMITHSONIAN. Reburying the ARCHAEOLOGISTS Digs Evidence rather than state the obvious. We once had them here. For a lil’ time it seems indeed. Herein. Their AGENDA from their own Archives and more Gigantism… lie buried therein.

 

Till next…

 

The Nazca Mummies. The Slide-show.

The NAZCA MUMMIES are now and still, part of an ongoing investigation by Researchers and Scientists working to reveal the related Truths. A Hoax or REAL.?. unknown at this time…The following Slide-show combines the NAZCA LINE GEOGLYPHS and the recent Reports and Media to showcase… this case. LEGENDs it seems indeed. More Mysteries of yore.?. Shiro style. photocredit/thanks:gaia

 

 

photocredit/thanks:hiddenincatours

 

THE NAZCA MUMMIES.

… have attracted the interest of many Researchers (click) and the imagination of many in the Public arena (click).

Online and off.

The Team at gaia.com and that at ufoparanormalradio.podbean.com and that of thesun.co.uk and the express.co.uk for example are all considering the evidence and ongoing research investigations (click).

 

(Video Link)

 

Several scientists, doctors, researchers, film makers and the like involved as well (click).

 

In general and thus far:

  • DNA appears Earth based.

 

  • HOMINID type Skeletal Structure/System.

 

  • Reflected in LEGEND and ROCK/CAVE ART.

 

  • Underground Tomb based discovery.

 

  • Carbon dating suggests 250-400 A.D.

 

  • Herbal Resins detected.

However;..

…as with many finds of possible Historical significance, the debates view both sides.

ALIEN v EARTHen… REAL v HOAX… and REAL v REAL also.

The ninth annual World Congress on Mummy Studies, took place in Lima, Peru, last August (click).

This Congress brings together World Experts in Mummies and Skeletons every couple of years.

This group appears not at all happy with the proceedings of this case thus far.

 

Whilst not commenting on any/all of the evidences they appear solely concerned with arranging an Inquiry…

…into whether any Archaeological Crimes have been committed.

 

On the surface… this seems reasonable.

 

Shiro however… simply asks… (click)

…Why was not this applied to any other case before.?. (click).

 

 

The LEGENDS are rife with very dubious find related data…

…MANY MANY MANY TIMES.

 

Anyway…

…now… time for…

THE SLIDE-SHOW.

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Article + related Intel therein… (click).

 

…AN UPDATE… via Gaia:

(Video Link)

 

Additional data is also being sought and so forth.

 

This will mainly concern itself with the view of the several olden LEGENDS;

…of the NAZCA Peoples,..

…the ANASAZI North American Indian Tribe/community and that,..

…of an olden village in Yugoslavia, Europe-

 

…all of which in their Tales, Scuplture and Statuary indicate knowledge and awareness of this 3 fingered/toed, missing eared and strange skull shaped Species/Beings being unveiled as currently.

 

chapada diamantina Rock/Cave Art.

 

Real or Hoax.?.

The positive… either way… is an opening of the MIND for some…

…in some manner, as well as an overall reminder of our Ancestral Legends and how they viewed the/their World when it struck them with sheer strangeness indeed.

 

These of Our World LEGENDS…

may the Truths inherent… be True.?.
