Sumer or the ‘land of civilised kings’, flourished in Mesopotamia, now modern-day Iraq, around 4500 BC. Sumerians created an advanced civilisation with its own system of elaborate language and writing, architecture and arts, astronomy and mathematics. Their religious system was a complex one and comprised of hundreds of gods. According to the ancient texts, each Sumerian city was guarded by its own god; and while humans and gods used to live together, the humans were servants to the gods.
In 1849, Sir Austen Henry Layard, English Archaeologist and global explorer, found himself among the ruins of ancient Bablyon in southern Mesopotamia. It was there he discovered the first pieces of what would eventually become one of Archaeology’s most controversial puzzles: Cuneiform Tablets. Within these incredible ancient texts, are stories that have an uncanny resemblance to the Biblical stories of creation, deities, and even a reference to a great flood and a giant ark that survived it.
Sumerian Mythology suggests that reality is a biogenetic experiment created by their Gods and Goddesses in which humans would experience in the cycles of time. These deities would return at the end of time, not for the gold, but to restore the golden alchemy of consciousness back to its rightful state of light.
