Sumer & Akkad Symbols: The rod & ring

For the Sumerians, the Akkadians were apparently the people of vessel X, which was not any type of vessel, I tend to think that they referred to those attractive decorated plates of Halaf and Hassuna-Samarra, prior to the invasion of mountaineers of Tell Ubaid who made shitty pots, comparatively speaking.

For the Akkadians, the Sumerians were the people of the lord of the cane, although it may seem a ridiculous name, for the rustic nature of the material, nevertheless it must be said that the lord of the cane, whoever he was, Enki, some of his subaltern apkallus , or who knows, but he was also the lord of the measure and holder of authority because  “he might set the limits”, a thing that from my point of view, remains reflected in the rod and the ring that we see in hands of the gods, even in  later pictures after the disappearance of the Sumerians.

The endemic droughts that followed one another, once the world of the great floods disappeared, brought the constant invasions from the Zagros Mountains, wars and diseases but also the irrigation systems, the plow, the cities and the modern world that we unjustly attribute to Greeks and Romans. The technological and cultural level of the mixed Sumero-Akkadian society is really impressive … they used the “Roman” arch thousands of years before the Romans, their mathematics based in the angular momentum, they have the faculty to always give exact results, almost like if it were a property of the nature of reality. It is possible to say that they got to have a rudimentary knowledge about the magnetism, the electricity, the light and the sound that the medieval European alchemists would nevertheless have envied. I am not the only one who thinks that the posts with rings that used to be placed around the stables as seen in the seal of the previous image, are simple lightning rods, but I do not stop speculating on the function of objects similar to those that usually the lahamus, “the hairy ones” are carrying , those creatures of Tiamat that ended to the service of Enki, as it is appraised in the seals that I show next. After all, bitumen, metal and wool are very well known, it is not uncommon that they were able to accumulate enough static electricity for priests were able to give pious electroshocks to the unbelievers, but as I say this it is still pure speculation.

A seemingly old photo of what appears to be one of these artifacts circulates over there, which, if it was found, has probably disappeared in some private collection. In the photo you can see how a metal rod, probably insulated with bitumen, seems it should have been located inside, along the hollow staff:

It would be very sad if we discovered that the science of the seventeenth century was within our reach at least four or five thousand years before, or perhaps it would open our eyes. The fact is that the cyclical wars and conflicts arising from an inadequate use of power have not only slowed down but also have made the progress of humanity go back countless times and in the idiosyncrasy of this ancient people born very soon the notion that competitiveness is not something positive or desirable but the fruit of stupid leaders, as it seems to have been reflected in their, at least, curious way of writing:

Sumerian writing is fascinating, I think. There are endless similar examples, in which it is not difficult to intuit the meaning in a visual and direct way; it had to evolve towards phonetics and its symbolic meaning in general is lost for practical needs, although some graphic symbolism remains due to the characteristics of language, such as the use of classifiers, which we can understand, or ideograms, many of which, for the moment, could only be understood by them.

Emanations of space-time.

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.  – Hamlet (1.5.167-8), W.Shakespeare.

Plato liked democracy as much as Sir Roger Penrose likes quantum mechanics. By saving the distance in time, they both know perfectly that they are systems that work, but it scares them how quickly things degenerate when materialism takes over our minds.

Materialism arose from the triumph of reason over superstition during the social revolutions of the eighteenth century and is fundamentally based on the fact that the only reality is the material one, so metaphysics, things like “I think therefore I am” by Descartes were expelled from science with God and all the demons. It has turned out to be a risky swerve: mental creations like human rights have came flying out the window and are about to come off from the vehicle. After nonsenses such as fission energy or nonevents such as molecular physics, some disillusioned are resuming the subject; After all, nothing should be left out of observation and experimentation, so that apparently they are trying to recover an idea already outlined by Plato himself, a way of approaching the problem of consciousness, the idea of death, that of God and those things forbidden by skeptics; The proposal is that consciousness is not contained in the brain, but like the magnetism of a magnet, it covers the whole body and extends beyond, blending invisibly with other fields, ultimately forming a single field that vibrates and fluctuates throughout the entire universe. The concept of field is not a recent idea, it is not an invention of quantum physics, it was coined by Faraday.

Materialism is wounded, at least in academic circles, in such a way that material reality is no longer the fundamental, the essential issue; the being, the matter are just lumps of a gigantic energy shake, put it in some way. Quantum fields make up space-time and are not made of anything and it is the matter what is made of fields. Skepticism is reasonable, as long as there is no experiment corroborating a theory; this is not the case. The approach, the new perspective derives from the fact that the particles that make up the matter are not sterile beads, or spherical marbles that rotate … they lack definite form. An electron has a life much more complicated than we think, it interacts, it shares information, it has social life so to speak and the group of friends of its social network covers the whole universe. Scientists call it quantum entanglement, it was predicted mathematically and has been experimentally proven at different times. Two particles, two electrons for example, coming from the same source, share links regardless of the distance that separates them; Einstein considered it rather spooky.

 

But it is so, any change by which one of the electrons can be affected is instantly manifested in the other; it is what actually annoyed Einstein, that the process was apparently faster than light. Two of the experiments were carried out at great distances, one was carried out on the earth’s surface and the other between a satellite and the earth, with the same result, suggesting that both distance and time are irrelevant, so it is not absurd to think that the field of information would not be subdued to the tyranny of the speed of light and therefore there are realities beyond what we consider real. The existence of a medium that somehow links all minds, all data, all the information of the universe, may sound very Borg-style, hive minds and such, but nothing of that, It is not that individuality is futile, quite the contrary, it is very important that the vision that each living being has of the world from its capabilities and particular circumstance, must be as different as possible from that of the rest, because the field of information is enriched with the variety of perspectives. On the other hand, it must always be remembered that paraphrasing a staunch materialist like Feynman, in matters of this nature, believing or to trust is not what is important, it is necessary to doubt. To wonder ultimately and be open to other possibilities.

The problem that researchers is that they are accustomed to seek answers with instruments based on the known electromagnetic spectrum, without really knowing the limits of this electromagnetic spectrum, therefore perhaps they are unable to detect subtleties such as the alleged field of Information, so we still  have to tiptoe over this whole matter of consciousness. Paradoxically the concept is an idea that somehow the corporations, governments and others are already exploiting, creating profiles, classifying, performing statistics and planning strategies with the help of the internet, for purposes similar to those that led to the construction of atomic bombs.

Things are more or less real from the material point of view, depending on the degree of interaction with the Higgs field, however particles like photons, ie light, ignore Higgs and his field completely, they are immaterial particles, nonexistent from the strictly materialistic point of view and there they are, like the neutrinos we do not even see. According to the second principle of thermodynamics, one of the most sacred laws, theoretically the information cannot be lost, more rare things have been seen, well, the evidence that the information is preserved seems to be so overwhelming that it has made to change the way of thinking of Stephen Hawking and I mention him not because he is a great scientist, which he certainly is, but because his recalcitrant stubbornness seemed to be proverbial.

It is curious that the ancestral corpus of the whole Eastern philosophy supports this particular holistic point of view that underlies inside of quantum mechanics; The observer is no different from the one observed …
