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.
