Winepress: Notes on Gilgamesh

1. The unique 1st person version is narrative given by the High Priest of Sin, the moon god - Sin-Leqi-unninni who tells the story with himself as Gilgamesh, which is unique among the tablets

2. There was a tradition in the texts dealing with the line of priests in the lineage of Sin-lei-unninni, a colophon in the tablets, that states ( Paraphrased : Only a High Priest who was an initiate of the gods could correctly read the texts, which are ephemeris ( Tables of astronomy observations for the moon ) and if you tried to interpret or understand them and were not the High Priest, you would curse yourself

The reason this is such an important concept, is that it is the basis for the " pit " in the Tanakh ( Hebrew Bible ), by way of the root word in Hebrew, as follows

Sin-leqi-unninni ( High Priest of Sin, the moon ) as Gilgamesh, is " he who saw of the abyss ( or deep )

In Hebrew, " pit " is : בור , ( bowr ) which is from the root word בור buwr {boor} a primitive root; - declare - to make clear, clear up, explain, prove , which in turn is in the sense of באר bo'r {bore} which ultimately derives from the word באר ba'ar {baw-ar'} a primitive root; - plain , plainly , declare- to make plain, distinct, to make clear, to declare*, *letters on a tablet

In Greek, in the New Testament, however, the " pit " is " bottomless ", αβυσσος ( abussos ) ( Abyss ) which is from a variation of : βυθος buthos {boo-thos'} - deep , the bottom or depth of the sea, which is a variation of βαθος bathos {bath'-os} depth , deepness , deep thing depth, height of the deep sea , metaphorically as deep, extreme, poverty or of the deep things of God

This is in turn from the word βαθυς bathus {bath-oos'}- deep , very early in the morning , in turn from the base : βασις basis {bas'-ece} from baino (to walk);; n f AV - foot (sole of) 1; 1 1) a stepping, walking 2) that with which one steps, the foot

As we have Gilgamesh ( the High Priest Sin-leqi-unninni ) as "Sha naqba īmuru" ("He who saw the deep" or "The one who saw the Abyss"

īmuru likely being a play on or adaptation of one of the following ( amāru; )

igi bar [LOOK AT] (1x: Lagash II) wr. igi bar "to look at" Akk. amāru; barû; naplusu
igi duh [SEE] (4x: Old Babylonian) wr. igi duh "to see" Akk. amāru; naplusu; naţālu
igi sig [SEE] (8x: Old Babylonian) wr. igi sig10 "to see" Akk. amāru; naplusu
u dug [ADMIRE] (92x: Old Babylonian) wr. u6 dug4 "to admire; to regard, observe" Akk. amāru; barû

Referring to the initiate High Priest knowing the mysteries, and only him

As the character of Christ is the " star in the pit / abyss / deep " in Revelation as well as the " High Priest " ( Itself drawing heavily on Mesopotamian traditions and texts, some word for word ) all one has to do is pay attention to the fact that deified Mesopotamian royalty / High Priests had their name written with the silent determinant " an " , which is the " dingir " symbol, meaning " god / star ", but more or less cognate to the Hebrew: ruach ( sky / breath / spirit , etc ) " ruach hakodesh " ( the spirit that only indwelt a High Priest / prophet ) and the Greek " pneuma " ( air / spirit )

The grandson of Sargon of Akkad was one of the first known to have used this literary notation of royalty using the determinant " an ", which gives us the name " Anu "

3. Gilgamesh tablets use the exact same specific notations for calculating the moon's cycles and phases that were also used for the sacred ephemeris ( astronomy tables ) texts that belonged to priests like Sin-leqi-unninni

These same mathematical notations are the same bi-sexigesimal ( base 10 combined with base 60 ) used to write the average synodic month used in not just the modern Hebrew calendar, but also used by everybody from Copernicus to Hipparchus and many before the Greeks ( Who used Babylonian notations for astronomy as they had none of their own ) but was central so Sin-leqi-unninni's sacred ephemeris

Plato references this in his Republic as well, by way of the " Lord of better and worse births ", the number 12,960,000 ( or 60^4 ), which is from the reckoning in base 10 fractions, of the base 60 month average as written by Babylonian astronomers:

In base 60 :

29 days 31' 50'' 8''' 20''''

In base 10:

29 + 31/60 + 50/(60 × 60) + 8/(60 × 60 × 60) + 20/(60 × 60 × 60 × 60) days

= 29 + 31/60 + 50/3600 + 8/216000 + 20/ 12,960,000 days

= 29 + 13753/25920 days

4. As flood terminologies really take three separate but related forms in Mesopotamian literature, merely writing the " flood " off as being a flood of water that supposedly covered everything is rather surprising for a bunch of professors, here's why:

~ Both eclipses and new moons ( In the texts of ephemeris belonging to only the High Priests ) were called " floods " , using terms like : udnua [MOON] (2x: Old Babylonian) wr. ud-nu2-a "the astronomical New Moon or Dark Moon" ( Akkadian : bubbulu ) and is used on the finger stele of Hammurabi as " floodwaters ", in turn the stele is in the shape of the fundamental unit used for measuring eclipse magnitudes and moon phases:

si [HORN] (262x: ED IIIa, ED IIIb, Old Akkadian, Lagash II, Ur III, Early Old Babylonian, Old Babylonian, Middle Babylonian, unknown) wr. si "horn; *finger*; fret" Akkadian qarnu

" qarnu " is cognate to the Hebrew " qeren " ( horn / ray of light, etc ) , which gives us the images of Moses with both rays of light as well as horns growing from his head in later art ( based on the misunderstanding of the translation of " qeren " ( horn )

Finger measures are still in use to this day, as 1 finger = 60 arcminutes = 3600 ( saru ) arceseconds , being the source of the Greek " saros " ( cycle of eclipses )

Or in Egyptian " teba " ( digit / finger ) of which there are 28 to one royal cubit

~ As the High Priest of the moon was the earthly personification of that god,( Sin, in this case ) as per classic tradition, he was also " the flood ", and this is commonly seen in ancient literature where a strong conquering god / ruler was called " flood / deluge "

Meaning the person was idiomatically " a flood "

~ " It is a flood " is a common term in literature used normally to mean " It is an emergency " , commonly used in correspondence to mean " It is urgent that you reply to this letter ASAP "
