Over the past the past few decades, educators in the field of ancient Mesopotamian histories remain baffled about the meaning of the Sumerian Kings List. Haicheng Wang, in Writing and the Ancient State: Early China in Comparative Perspective, states:
“In the case of the Sumerian King List the exact function has not been established (Figure 1.10, top, and Text 1.5). It is more than a mere list of the royal names, and in the extant copies there is no prayer. In fact specialists are somewhat at a loss to place this text in the Sumerian writing tradition.”
Wang is correct in his assertion that the Sumerian Kings List may have another value than its historical aspect. Since the esoteric meaning of the Sumerian Kings List is only taught in the inner circles of the Art of Ninzuwu, we are not obliged to discuss this information. However, the historical interpretation of the Sumerian Kings List is known, and its many can be found in a short essay appearing in the unsung Necronomicon entitled, The Sacred Text of Ghost Dragon Kotodama by Warlock Asylum, where we read:
“Modern scholars are often baffled as to why the ancient Sumerians kings counted one year of ruler-ship as 3,600 years. Yet at the same time, many of these same scholars are aware of the fact that these Sumerian kings, through the Sacred Marriage Rite received the “Power of Anu.” The number of Anu is sixty and this is the power that was given over to the Kings of Sumer during the Sacred Marriage Rite. The Kings of Sumer, being 60, would now enter each zodiac sign, of which there are twelve, and pass through the five elements of each sign. Sixty times sixty elements, produced by the five elements in each zodiac sign, equals 3,600. The power of Anu is an allotrope of carbon with 60 atoms in each molecule.”
This is definitely a positive breakthrough for those involved in ancient Mesopotamian studies and spirituality. Have a blessed day!
