The Mysterious Lotus Eaters and the Wind Demon

Lotus Eaters and the Wind Demon. Found within Greek mythology are the lotus-eaters who were a race of people living on an island dominated by the Lotus tree. There are mythical elements contained in story, namely the mysterious wind demon. The lotus fruits and flowers in the ancient mythical story were the primary food of the island and were a narcotic, causing the inhabitants to sleep in peaceful apathy. Figuratively, ‘lotus-eater’ denotes “a person who spends their time indulging in pleasure and luxury rather than dealing with practical concerns”. That also sounds familiar doesn’t it. In the Odyssey Book IX, immediately references the wind, a reference to the wind demon. Odysseus tells how adverse north winds blew him and his men off course as they were rounding Cape Malea, the southernmost tip of the Peloponnesus, headed westwards for Ithaca:

Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss

Ea/Enki the Anunnaki god of the Abyss, was the third of the great Babylonian triad of gods, which consisted of Anu, En-lil, and himself. This documentary looks at the bigger picture concerning the mysterious Anunnaki gods of ancient Mesopotamia. Ea/Enki was a god of the waters, and like Anu is called the ‘ father of the Anunnaki gods.’ As a god of the Abyss he appears to have been also a deity of wisdom and occult power, thus allegorically associated with the idea of depth or profundity. He was the father of Merodach/Marduk, who consulted him on the most important matters connected with his kingship of the gods. Lord Ea/Enki was consulted by individuals of all classes who desired his light to be thrown upon their crafts or businesses. He was the god of artisans in general—blacksmiths, stone-cutters, sailors, and artificers of every kind. He was also the patron of prophets and seers. As the abyss is the place where the seeds of everything were supposed to originate, so he appears to have fostered reproduction of every description. Ea/Enki was supposed to dwell beside Anu, who inhabited the pole of the ecliptic. The site of his chief temple was at Eridu, which at one time stood, before the waters receded, upon the shore of the Persian Gulf. We have seen already that Ea/Enki, under his Greek name of Oannes, was supposed to bring knowledge and culture to the people of Eridu. There are many confusing myths connected with him, and he seems in some measure to enter into the Babylonian myth of the deluge. The chief extract from the fragments of Berossus concerning Oannes states that: “In the first year there made its appearance from a part of the Eruthrean sea, which bordered upon Babylonia, an animal endowed with reason, who was called Oannes.” According to the accounts of Apollodorus the whole body of the animal was like that of a fish and had under a fish’s head another head, and also feet below, similar to those of a man, joined to the fish’s tail. His speech, too, was articulate and human and there was a representation of him to be seen in the time of Berossus. After this there appeared other creatures like Oannes/Enki, of which Berossus promises to give an account when he comes to the history of the kings. He is thus very different from the god En-lil, the ‘ lord of heaven ’ who possesses so many attributes of destruction. Ea/Enki in his benevolent way thwarts the purpose of the riotous god of tempest, which greatly enrages En-lil, the two religious centres of Eridu and Nippur, were the cities of Ea and En-lil respectively. He was also called En-ki, which describes him as ‘ lord of the earth ’ through which his waters zig zagged. the wave-form-serpent-fish god.In such a country as Babylonia earth and water are closely associated, as under that soil water is always to be found at a distance of a few feet: thus the interior of the earth is the domain of Ea.

The Secret Source of Babylonian Cosmology

The Secret Source of Babylonian Cosmology. The origin of the Babylonian and Akkadian cosmology did not differ in this respect from other races in the same stage of development. In whatever direction we look when examining the cosmologies of barbarian or semi-civilized peoples, we find a total inability to get behind and beyond the idea that the matter of creation lay already to the hand of the creative agency, and that in order to shape a world it had but to draw the material therefore from the teeming deep or the slain body of a hostile monster. The cosmology of Babylon is therefore on a par with those of Scandinavia, China, and many North American Indian tribes, nor does it reach so high an imaginative level as those of ancient Egypt, India, or the Maya of Central America, in some of which, the vocal command of a god is sufficient to bring about the creation of the earth and the waters surrounding it. The making of the sun, the moon, and the other heavenly bodies is, as will be more fully shown later, of great importance in Babylonian myth. The stars appear to have been attached to the firmament of heaven as to a cloth. Across this the sun passed daily, his function being to inspect the movements of the other heavenly bodies. The moon, likewise, had her fixed course, and certain stars were also supposed to move across the picture of the night with greater or less regularity. The Secret heavens were guarded at either end by a great gateway, and through one of these the sun passed after rising from the ocean, whilst in setting he quit the heavens by the opposite portal. The terrestrial world was imagined as a great hollow structure resting on the ( deep.’ Indeed, it would seem to have been regarded as an island floating on an abyss of waters. This conception of the world of earth was by no means peculiar to the Babylonians, but was shared by them with many of the nations of antiquity. As emanating from the blood of Merodach/Marduk himself, man was looked upon as directly of heavenly origin. An older tradition existed to the effect that the Anunnaki Merodach/Marduk had been assisted in the creation of mankind by the goddess Aruru, who figures in the Gilgamesh epic as the creator of Eabani out of a piece of clay. We also find an ancient belief that humanity owed its origin to the god Ea/Enki, but when Merodach displaced this god politically, he would, of course, ‘ take over ’ his entire record and creative deeds as well as his powers and sovereign-ties. At Nippur Bel was looked up to as the originator of man. But these beliefs probably obtained in remoter times, and would finally be quenched by the advance to full and unquestioned power of the great god Merodach/Marduk. Some mythologists see in the story of Jonah a hidden allusion to the circumstances of Babylonian cosmology…there appears to be a “Secret Source” behind IT all; Narrated, Created by A.Christie

The Michigan Dogman Sightings

The Mysterious Michigan Dogman Sightings. According to legends, the Michigan Dogman appears in a ten-year cycle that falls on years ending in 7. Sightings have been reported in several locations throughout Michigan, primarily in the northwestern quadrant of the Lower Peninsula. The creature is described as a seven-foot tall, blue-eyed, or amber-eyed bipedal canine-like animal with the torso of a man and a fearsome howl that sounds like a human scream. This creature was unknown to most of the modern world until very late in the twentieth century. It is said to have been stalking the area around the Manistee River since the days when the Odawa tribes lived there. Authentic sources for sightings were made prior to 1987, however, have never been documented beyond Steve Cook’s song. The first alleged encounter of the Michigan Dogman occurred in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks saw a creature which they described as having a man’s body and a dog’s head. Linda S. Godfrey, in her book The Beast of Bray Road, compares the Manistee sightings to a similar creature sighted in Wisconsin known as the Beast of Bray Road. The Cook song: In 1987 disc jockey Steve Cook at WTCM-FM in Traverse City, Michigan recorded a song titled “The Legend”, which he initially played as an April Fool’s Day joke. He based the songs on myths and legends from around North America Cook maintains his skepticism about the possibility of a real dogman, he had this to say about the matter: I do believe people who think they saw something really did see something. I also think the Dogman provides them with an avenue to explain what they couldn’t explain for themselves. — Steve Cook, Skeptoid.com, Wag the Dogman.
