In Search Of Von Dechend's Tunnel
Date: 1 Jan 2015 by John Yonko
| One of my favorite Distractions is the
pursuit and study of antiquarian knowledge. This essay briefly examines one aspect of the historical research of MIT author and lecturer Hertha von Dechend regarding the ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh, and raises the question, "Did she mean 'wornhole' ?"
If you are a fan of Science Fact or Fiction, you may find the
narrative - as well as the illustrating Yonko art - fascinating.
Von Dechend does not ask, “what is a river” She does
ask, “what is the earth”!
The constantly changing endlessly evolving collection of
apparently random story particles presented in the Epic of
Gilgamesh cannot be occurring accidentally. There is too much
system in the randomness for that. Everything in Gilgamesh is an
opening to a motherworld through a single point door. Nothing goes
anywhere in particular in Gilgamesh, but everywhere
simultaneously. Von Dechend is clearly
aware of the illusory nature of all things in Gilgamesh, and that
the ancient Sumerians intended
differing, spiraling levels of deeper meaning than the mundanely
visible superficial story in the stone.

In Search Of The Whit Anzu
Date: 1 Jan 2015 by John Yonko | Thousands of ancient cuneiform documents state that a shining
white bird was built and restored in Sumeria, later called Persia, now
named Iraq. What did they mean - and why do the Germans, the Russians, the Americans
and the Iraqis care?
The US Department of Homeland Security recently ordered the translation of a 4,000 year old artifact dealing with a shining imdugud bird, before returning the smuggled artifact to Iraq.
Stanford University published a brief description of the artifact,
mentioning that the inscription on it dealt with the construction
and restoration of a " whit Anzu". Stanford did
not mention what the Anzu may have been, or how it was restored,
or why our government was interested.
