It looks like later mesopotamians - who apparently knew about other planets & their peoples - were of the mind to make ETs the gods for the common-folk to believe in so they carved effigies in stone like we'd put-up educational billboards today. I get it that Mesopotamian culture recognized advantageous developments of ET beings (like we gobble up ET technology) and that the Mesopotamians accepted a royal blood lineage as right to rule & authority. I prefer rule by the people. I want my military-industrial complex heritage to support a democratic republic. I think this is being politically fought out today but that's another subject.
Back to ETs viewed as gods. Ancient man does not equate to primitive man & I just think the Mesopotamian culture was sophisticated enough to know the difference between an off-planet ET and a god-form. I'd bet they had their own deep state system & a set-up with a controlling "priesthood" as the go-between the ruling class & the military & working class. The same pattern repeats historically. Heck, toss in the occultist "secret societies" to the mix. I still wouldn't make a god out of any of 'em. I admit I'm just bull headed that way.
I think along the lines that religious experience is what enables individuals to perceive god-concepts. Pair inner awareness of "Something Greater" against a mortal being with a telluric energy-zap handshake. So, did ancient humans equate telluric energy manipulation with the god-like forces of creation? And if so ... Who benefitted from letting that idea catch on? It's been used a lot.
This is what I think, that ancient ET’s used this electromagnetic energy to do all sorts of things like healing, construction, destruction, etc. and ancient humans who were created by these ET interpreted this a raw power. Thus Gods. This benefited the ETs as they could now coerce the humans to worship them, or rather work for them.
As for who all has been here, when they’ve been here, who’s coming, and how many of them there are is a question I don’t think we’ll ever be able to answer definitively. If the original ET’s were the Annunaki as sitchen would suggest, we know that a good portion of them left before the last flood. I believe some stayed, including some who were born here themselves (children of the ET’s)and they may have felt a a connection to the home planet and wanted to stay.
I think there have probably been a fair amount of other, separate societies if ET’s who have visited earth since then, all with various motives and interests in earth and humans. Due to world governments attempt to cover this up and hide from the general public, all we can really do is speculate. That said, I’ll share that my speculation of Grey aliens is that they are future humans who went into space at some point in time, they mutated in their new space environment and eventually either wanted some of their old genetics back, or became sterile, they cane back in time to “tinker” in various ways with human genes of those who they abduct.
I also lean on sitchin’s writings, especially when questions the ancient timeline. He claims the word for the original ET’s was Annunaki. Many mainstream scientist bash sitchen for his interpretation of Annunaki to mean “those who came from heaven to earth”. Regardless, this is the original pantheon of Sumarian culture. So if they are not gods, what is a god?
This is usually where I offend people and I really don’t want to. But, I don’t believe there are any other “real” gods, and these Annunaki are posers. I think there are beings physical and non physical all throughout this universe, some reside on other planets, some reside in other dimensions. Some can harness great physical power, some can harness great meta-physical power. Some can reach us and communicate with us, some can’t. Some are wise, some are evil. Some want to help us, some want to conquer and exploit us. Basically, we’re all gods.
That’s enough from me for now, but would anyone here be interested in doing a little forum book study on “the lost book of Enki”, the deciphered Sumarian texts published by Sitchin.?? We wouldn’t even have to read them. They are on YouTube in their entirety so one could just listen to it, and then we can discuss. I could post one video a week (there are 14) and see how it goes? Let me know if anyone would be interested in something like that! I would love to do it!
