Who’s the Boss?

In the book The 12th Planet by famed Sumerian scholar and translator Zecharia Sitchin, the author describes in Chapter Twelve the creation of man. Taken from the ancient tablets that describe this process:

 
I will produce a lowly Primitive;
‘Man’ shall be his name
I will create a Primitive Worker;
He will be charged with the service of the gods,
That they might have their ease.

He goes on to explain that to the ancient Sumerian and Akkadian people, man was referred to as a “lulu” (primitive,) a “lulu amelu” (primitive worker,) and an “avilum” (laborer.)

Humanity in turn spoke of the “gods” as “Lord,” “King,” “Ruler,” and “Master” – very much the same terms the Jews used to talk about their god Jehovah, and Christians later used to describe their prophet Jesus.

The Sumerian texts say that humans were used as laborers on many projects. This included mining gold (which the Annunaki aliens needed to improve the atmosphere of their home planet.) And it also included “tilling the garden,” in a place that translates literally as “EDIN” (which became the Eden of Genesis in the Old Testament.)

So, basically, we were the slave laborers of the gods since day one.

This would explain humanity’s tendency to behave in a “sheeplike” way. Subservience was bound into our very genes. We’ve been habituated to it since mankind’s earliest days. We’re so used to it we don’t even question it anymore.

This explains why, throughout our history, we have had a pathological belief that slavery is okay. We’ve always been good at turning people into slaves – whether it’s people from another continent with a different skin tone, or our women.

It doesn’t look like we came up with the concept ourselves. Instead, it was literally bred into us to the point where it became familiar and “normal.”

Sitchin also explains a mistranslation that took place. In the Sumerian texts the word “avod” was used to mean “work.” But this term was misconstrued over the years to mean “worship.”

In mankind’s earliest days, he didn’t WORSHIP the gods.

He WORKED for them.

Hmm.

These days, we like to think we no longer work for the gods.

But in every religious tradition, we are still using terms like “worship” and “serve” when we talk about God (or the gods.) (Or the Goddess, for that matter.)

Why would a divine being of infinite power, intelligence, and awareness need slaves to worship him or her?

Would a divine being, indeed, even possess an ego? Would God (with a capital “G”) really display the emotional maturity of a fourteen year old girl and demand that humans run around worshipping and praising and making offerings to him?

Does that sound like a divine consciousness?

Sounds more like a narcissist to me.

Religion means the expression of reverence for a divine, infinite being – or communion with a consciousness or field of energy that originates in the nonphysical realm.

But what are we usually doing?

Engaging in ritual, kneeling and bowing down before “gods” of various kinds, prostrating ourselves, flagellating ourselves (especially if we belong to Opus Dei) and bemoaning how sinful we are.

Do you think an infinitely loving, intelligent, and immortal consciousness or divine force would require that?

If so, your daddy must not have loved you very much.

Most of humanity’s quest for approval from God appears to be about placating a distant, dyfunctional being (or beings) who have conditional love for humanity, not unconditional or altruistic love.

We got off track and developed such core self-esteem problems because we were slaves from the very beginning.

And the slave factory keeps cranking up production. To the tune of seven billion people, many of whom spend their entires lives fighting hunger, consumed by war, and misled by the very spiritual traditions which they naively hope will “save” them from suffering.

The problem is, slave laborers don’t get saved.

They just get used.

Sure, some of the Custodians gave humans education in a few nice things like writing, music, architecture, and the like. Handy stuff for building a civilization.

They also indoctrinated us with their dysfunctional tendencies to make constant war upon each other (because the gods are always fighting in every pantheistic tradition.) And they programmed us to be afraid and to never question the gods, devising sophisticated forms of mind control like telling us over and over again how naughty we are, how we’re born in sin, and how maybe – if we’re extremely lucky and we do everything the gods dictate – we might get to go to heaven one day.

And reincarnate shortly thereafter to become slaves again. But they don’t tell us that part.

It’s time for a slave revolt. And it’s time for fire those deceptive, arrogant agencies – both the Custodians who originated these degrading traditions of self-hatred within humanity, as well as their human servants who perpetuate enslaving the masses through their various religions and crusty, outmoded forms of “spiritual wisdom.”

Because I don’t know about you, but I ain’t signing on to renew a labor contract I didn’t fully understand in the first place.

And I ain’t gonna be nobody’s bitch. 🙂
