Annunaki: Advanced Technology
When interpreting ancient Sumerian writings, it is important to understand the extremely primitive nature and limited education of the people who witnessed and interpreted the events of these ancient days. Any power or ability that was not understood or possessed by ordinary people would be regarded as divine or god-like. Technology would not be understood, and would be described in ways that ordinary people could comprehend.
For example, it is written that the Anuna could fly in birds. A primitive person would likely describe a winged flying machine to be like a bird. Powerful bombs (nuclear) produced “evil winds” that burned, scorched and leveled mountains. The following sections describe the technologies possessed by the Anuna in terms regular people of those days could understand:
Direct Translations from the Sumerian Texts:
Flying birds of the Anuna:
Ninurta's return to Nibru: a šir-gida to Ninurta: c.1.6.1
"Let my beloved city, the sanctuary Nibru, raise its head as high as heaven. Let my city be pre-eminent among the cities of my brothers. Let my temple rise (?) the highest …… among the temples of my brothers. Let the territory of my city be the freshwater well of Sumer. Let the Anuna, my brother gods, bow down there. Let their flying birds establish nests in my city. Let their refugees refresh themselves in my shade."
Flying machines with powerful weapons and super speed:
The temple hymns: c.4.80.1
O E-ninnu (House of 50), right hand of Lagaš, foremost in Sumer, the Anzud bird which gazes upon the mountain, the šar-ur weapon of …… Ninĝirsu, …… in all lands, the strength of battle, a terrifying storm which envelops men, giving the strength of battle to the Anuna, the great gods,...
Aircraft Funeral Boat:
Ninurta's exploits: a šir-sud (?) to Ninurta: c.1.6.2
They sang to the lord in the ceremonial (?) boat. The boat, floating of its own accord, was piled up with riches. The boat Ma-kar-nunta-ea proceeded shiningly. To greet the hero from the smiting of weapons, the Anuna …… came to meet him.
Tablet computer technology:
The building of Ninĝirsu's temple (Gudea, cylinders A and B): c.2.1.7
"Then there was a woman -- whoever she was. She …… sheaves. She held a stylus of refined silver in her hand, and placed it on a tablet with propitious stars, and was consulting it."
Anuna riding on flying craft and posessiong unknown powers:
The Anuna gods address affectionately the great prince who has travelled in his Land: "Lord who rides upon the great powers, the pure powers, who controls the great powers, the numberless powers, foremost in all the breadth of heaven and earth; who received the supreme powers in Eridug, the holy place, the most esteemed place, Enki, lord of heaven and earth -- praise!"
Description of Annuna god Enki's private underwater habitat:
The lord established a shrine, a holy shrine, whose interior is elaborately constructed. He established a shrine in the sea, a holy shrine, whose interior is elaborately constructed. The shrine, whose interior is a tangled thread, is beyond understanding. The shrine's emplacement is situated by the constellation the Field, the holy upper shrine's emplacement faces towards the Chariot constellation. Its terrifying sea is a rising wave, its splendour is fearsome. The Anuna gods dare not approach it.
Anuna god Enki shown riding upon a "winged disc". Adding wings to a person or object is intended to communicate the ability of flight, not to imply the person or device actually had visible wings. The "tree-like" divice in the center of the cylider seal is interpreted as a tree, however, it can also be interpreted as a multi-armed technological robot or device. You can even see implied machine joints in the arms and finger-like instruments on the ends of the arms. An eye or central processing unit may the at the top of the device.
Anuna god shown sitting in a chair that is part of craft with a control stick in front of him. Other anuna are coming to join him. The image of a star with planets inbetween the two figures is common in cuneiform tablets. Stars represent the origins of the Anuna in the star system Pleadies and appear over or near an Anuna god's head to designate thier "divine" origins in the heavens.
The great Anuna god is shown ascending a staircase within a portal or doorway. Energy waves are coming off of the doorway. Many hold the belief this documents a star gate or teleportation device used by the Anuna.
