I would like to welcome everyone to the GateWalker’s Info Page. I decided that we would begin providing some definition to some of the terms that appear in the Simon Necronomicon..
“And around thee shall appear the Flame, like Lightning flashing in all directions, and all things will appear amid thunders, and from the Cavities of the Earth will leap forth the ANNUNNAKI, Dog-Faced, and thou shalt bring them down.”
The Mad Arab here refers to the “ANNUNNAKI” as being Dog-Faced. Who were the ANNUNNAKI?
The term “ANNUNNAKI.” as it appears in the Simon Necronomicon, derives form the term anunnaki. Wikipedia offers us this perspective:
“The Anunnaki (also transcribed as: Anunnaku, Ananaki and other variations) are a group of Sumerian, Akkadian and Babylonian deities. The name is variously written “da-nuna”, “da-nuna-ke4-ne”, or “da-nun-na”, meaning something to the effect of ‘those of royal blood’ or ‘princely offspring’.
Anunnaki was a collective term for deities in general, especially those who were not otherwise named. Dr. Jeremy Black and Dr. Anthony Green write that the word eventually suggested the deities of earth and the underworld after the term Igigi was used more to refer to the heavenly deities.
The Anunnaki appear in the Babylonian creation myth, Enuma Elish. In the late version magnifying Marduk, after the creation of mankind, Marduk divides the Anunnaki and assigns them to their proper stations, three hundred in heaven, three hundred on the earth. In gratitude, the Anunnaki, the “Great Gods”, built Esagila, the splendid: “They raised high the head of Esagila equaling Apsu. Having built a stage-tower as high as Apsu, they set up in it an abode for Marduk, Enlil, Ea.” Then they built their own shrines.
According to later Babylonian myth, the Anunnaki were the children of Anu and Ki, brother and sister gods, themselves the children of Anshar and Kishar (Skypivot and Earthpivot, the Celestial poles), who in turn were the children of Lahamu and Lahmu (“the muddy ones”), names given to the gatekeepers of the Abzu temple at Eridu, the site at which the creation was thought to have occurred. Finally, Lahamu and Lahmu were the children of Tiamat and Abzu.”
Wikipedia gives us a pretty good definition of the term, but it still doesn’t give us a deeper meaning as too why the Mad Arab refers to them as being “Dog-Faced?” it seems more than probable that when we look at some of the deeper history regarding the Anunnaki we can get a clearer understanding.
The Anunnaki were children of Anu. They were also the judges of the seven judges of the netherworld, who sat before the throne of Queen Ereshkigal. They are associated with the Ursa Major, which reassures us that the Walking Process occurs in the Underworld. It seems that there is some sort of relationship with the Sirius Star, also known as the “Dog Star,” and the times that the Anunnaki open up to judge the Earth. An interesting observation is made by Mark Amaru Pinkham, in his book entitled; The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom. On pages 43-44 Pinkham states:
“According to certain Sumerian texts, as well as Greek translations of the Middle Eastern history anciently recorded by the Babylonian initiate Berosus, Enki or “Oannes,” whose symbol was a goat-fish, arrived in Mesopotamia with his entourage,the Anunnaki (also called the “repulsive” or “dragon-faced Annedoti” by Greek translators), at four different times, and each time taught the native people many of the mundane and spiritual arts. Their visits were 30,000 years apart, an interval which is conspicuously close to 26,000 years, the duration of one Procession of Equinoxes, thus implying that the purpose of each arrival by Enki and his Serpent followers was to initiate a new cycle of time by infusing the ancient Mesopotamian population with a fresh outpouring of culture and wisdom….While some waves of Anunnaki probably came from Sirius, some Sumerian texts seem to imply that at least one delegation came from Atlantis…..atlantis is remembered in the early Sumerian scriptures as NI-DUK-KI..”
This is an interesting observation, yet it does emphasis the vital role that the Anunnaki play in our Initiation. We will discuss this more in our next article; The Anunnaki Part 2. Below are some dipictions of the Anunnaki:
