Having been pardoned by the gracious Enki, Enlil returned to his temperate redoubt in the Lebanon mountains and tied the knot with Sud. He also gave an undertaking, which he was to inviolably abide by throughout his stay on Earth, that he would never indulge in sexual relations outside wedlock such was the shock of “Sudigate”.
Following his marriage to Sud, Enlil sent for Ninurta, the Nibiru-based son he had with his half-sister Ninmah. Meanwhile, Sud gave him a son, who he named Nannar but who is best known as Sin, a corruption of the Akkadian Suen and after whom Mount Sinai is named. Sin (who was to become the Allah of Islam) has gone into the annals of history as the first Anunnaki to be born on Earth. Enlil had one more child and his last: it was yet another son called Ishkur, also called Adad. Enlil never had daughters and never had concubines. After siring two children by Sud, Enlil was now confirmed as Earth’s Commander-in-Chief by the Anunnaki top-brass. It was at this stage that Sud became Ninlil, meaning “First Lady” as she indeed had become the highest ranking Anunnaki female on Earth. When Ninurta arrived on Earth, one of the key responsibilities Enlil entrusted him was to see to timely deliveries of the gold that was being mined in today’s Zimbabwe, South Africa and Swaziland to the mother planet Nibiru. Ninurta, a skilled military service man, became Enlil’s “Foremost Warrior”. In order to ensure that both Enlilites and Enkites obeyed him, Enlil provided Ninurta with the IB missile, “a weapon with 50 killing heads”. Besides being a skilled soldier, Ninurta was a mineral geologist and metallurgist. Thus when Baditibira, the “Metal City” where gold ores were smelted and refined into ingots was set up in the Edin, Ninurta was appointed as its first governor.
ENKI’S SEXUAL ANTICS
Enki, who was based in Zimbabwe, was in due course joined by his Nibiru-born and firstborn son Marduk. But he was in no hurry to get his wife Damkina to join him too as his sights were set on his step-sister Ninmah. Since his arch-rival Enlil had a son with Ninmah, Enki wanted his turn too, aware that when it came to contending for kingly succession, it was a son with a half-sister that counted, not the firstborn son overall per se. Marduk, who was next in line to the Sirian-Orion throne after Enlil, had been banished to Earth for good by Anu for marrying an Earthling, a story we shall dwell upon in detail at a later stage. As a result, Enki determined to have a son with Ninmah to replace Marduk in the jockeying for the Milky Way Galaxy’s most influential throne. In the process, he invited Ninmah to stay with him at his ostentatious “silver and lapis lazuli” adorned mansion on the banks of the Zambezi River. One thing led to another, bar marriage as Ninmah had a spinster curse hanging over her courtesy of King Anu, who was incensed that she had scuppered his plans to have him marry Enki when she sired Ninurta with Enlil. Unfortunately, a son was a “no-show”: all the kids, six in all, were daughters and all came in rapid succession such was Enki’s haste to produce a male heir. Of the six, three rose to prominence. They were Geshtinanna, who was gifted at poetry and interpreting dreams; Ninsun (also known as Nina or Nanshe), arguably Enki’s most brilliant and soulful daughter; and Nindaba (also known as Sesheta), reputed as the goddess of writing. At some stage, Ninmah stayed for an extended period of time at her medical centre in Shuruppak in the Edin. Desperate to sire a bloodline male heir carrying the all-important DNA of Ninmah, Enki sweet-talked Ninsun, who aesthetically was the spitting image of her mother, and had sexual relations with her which resulted in pregnancy. Ninmah was livid. First, she had Ninsun travel to the Edin whereupon she administered an abortion on her. The foetus was buried in her experimental herb garden and a particularly potent herb was grown on the grave. Ninmah, a trained pharmacologist, then prepared a delicious but highly poisonous brew from this herb and had Enki drink it in addition to lacing his food with it. The poison was not meant to kill him but to simply sexually incapacitate him. It had serious side effects though: Enki kept throwing up and was in excruciating pain all day long. In addition, he began to shrivel up and age rapidly, his skin turning a putrid yellow. It was not until Enki’s right-hand man, Isimud, pleaded with Ninmah that she provided the antidote to reverse the effects of the poison. From then on, Enki never touched her. Following his spurn by Ninmah, Enki had his wife Damkina join him from Nibiru and more children followed. Altogether, Enki had four Earth-born sons with Damkina. They were Nergal (the origin of the term “Negro”), Gibil, Ninagal, and Dumuzi. Enki’s other eminent son was Ningishzidda (also known as Thoth), who like him was an all-round genius. Enki had Ningishzidda with Nanna-Sin’s daughter Ereshkigal. Ereshkigal was at once a grand-daughter of Enki in that Ningal (also known as Asherah), Ereshkigal’s mother, was Enki’s daughter by another mistress known as Ningikuga. Ereshkigal had been sent to run the Cape Agulhas astronomical, climate and Earth-monitoring station in South Africa. It was in the aftermath of this posting that Enki begot Ningishzidda with her. Meanwhile, Nergal, also known as Erra, had been given overall superintendence over African mines by Enki. Nergal resented the prominent presence of Ereshkigal, an Enlilite, on a continent that should have been the preserve of Enkites. He also hated the fact that her unborn child, Ningishzidda, who had the more politically superior Enlilite blood, might in future contend with him for the dominance of southern Africa. These factors made Nergal plot to kill Ereshkigal. However, when he was just priming to do so, Ereshkigal sweet-talked him into marrying her. Hence it was that Nergal married a half-sister and raised a step-son who was at once his half-brother. The marriage clearly was dictated more by politics than anything else. Enki, however, was not yet done. He had another child, a daughter, with his granddaughter Inanna-Ishtar (whose mother was Enki’s daughter Ningal), a sister to Ereshkigal. Inanna fell pregnant when she visited Enki in Zimbabwe with a view to get her hands on the vitally important computer chips known as MEs. The daughter was named Sharra. On his part, Ningishzidda had a steady relationship with Geshtinanna which did not culminate in a formal marriage or a child.
ENKI EXPERIMENTS WITH HOMO ERECTUS
Not long after he had transferred to the Abzu from Eridu, Enki set up an alternative home in present-day East Africa in addition to the main one along the Zambezi River. The new home was again situated on the banks of a river. It was a superlatively equipped laboratory, which he later manned with Ningishzidda. Enki called the laboratory BIT SHIIMTI, which means “Place Where The Wind of Life is Blown In”. Here, Enki wanted to further inquire into nature. “Of the differences between what on Earth and what on Nibiru appeared he wished to learn,” his master scribe Endubasar writes on his behalf in The Lost Book of Enki. “The mysteries of living and dying of Earth’s creatures to unravel he sought.” Put differently, Enki and his son were engaged in a genetic engineering programme. Because his time was so much taken up by scientific inquiry at Bit Shiimti , Enki appointed Ennugi to take care of the day-to-day oversight of mining activities in Zimbabwe as his son Nergal was busy exploiting new mines in West Africa, notably today’s Ghana. Enki had set up Bit Shiimti in East Africa chiefly because there was one creature there which had fascinated him and which he wanted to study at close quarters in its natural habitat. This ape-like creature is what we today call Homo Erectus, or Ape-Man. Enki describes the creature thus: “They lived among the tall trees, their front legs as hands they were using … Erect they seemed to be walking … They eat plants with their mouths, they drink water from lake and ditch. Shaggy with hair is their body, their head hair is like a lion’s. With gazelles they jostle, with teeming creatures in the waters they delight!” Enki had noted that Ape-Man had a bit of intelligence and compassion. For instance, when Enki laid traps for game animals and they got ensnared, Ape-Man untangled them to safety. Obviously, there had to be something special about this creature and indeed there was. So Enki decided, first, to study and map the genome, that is, the genetic blueprint, of Ape-Man. To his surprise, he found Ape-Man’s genes and those of the Anunnaki differed only be a few hundreds! In only a few million years’ time, Enki reckoned, Ape-Man was going to evolve into an intelligent, versatile being like the Anunnaki were! Ape-Man and the Anunnaki were of the same genetic seed! At some stage, the Anunnaki miners began to grumble about the exertions of underground mining. Like the naturally sympathetic man he was, Enki thought a way had to be found to relieve the toil of the Anunnaki miners not through mechanical means anymore but by organic means. So Enki and Ningishzidda embarked on the endeavour to bring about improved creatures through not only tampering with the genetic order of Ape-Man but also by mixing two life forms. The ancient historian Berossus gives us a hint of what transpired in Enki’s laboratories in the following words: “Creatures appeared with two wings, some with four and two faces. They had one body but two heads, the one of a man, the other of a woman. They were likewise in their several organs both male and female. Others had legs and horns of goats. Some had horses’ feet; others had limbs of a horse behind, but in front were fashioned like men, resembling hippocentaurs. Bulls likewise bred there with the heads of men; and dogs with fourfold bodies, and the tails of fishes. Also horses with the heads of dogs. In short, there were creatures with the limbs of every species of animals.” Enki and Ningishzidda finally were close to coming up with a perfect hybrid creature and it was at this stage that Enki contrived a miners’ go-slow to get Enlil to come over to the Abzu so he could coax him into giving the nod to the creation of a LULU AMELU, a primitive worker, to “bear the yoke on the gods’ behalf”.
“LET US CREATE A WORKER RACE”
In the 40th shar, or 144,000 years since the Anunnaki arrival on Earth, Ninurta, who was in charge of Badtibira, noted that shipments of ores had become less frequent. Concerned, Ninurta filed a report to his dad at Nippur. Enlil immediately instructed him to travel to the Abzu (Africa) to investigate. When Ninurta arrived in modern-day Zimbabwe (then called Ophir, the root word for Afur-ika, or Africa), he was met by mining superintendent Ennugi. His uncle Enki, the overall overseer of mining operations, was nowhere to be seen. Ninurta supposed the reason production had plummeted could be put to Enki’s seeming detachment. Little, if at all, did he know that the curtailed production was deliberately designed by Enki! Ennugi reported to Ninurta that the Anunnaki miners were on a go-slow, which was now verging on a complete downing of the tools. They found the excavation toil just too arduous and taxing. After all, they were not miners by trade: they were astronauts. They had auxiliary instrumentation at their disposal all right, but this only minimally lessened the strain. Ninurta asked where Enki was as he was best suited to address the miners’ grievances. Ennugi told him Enki was not even based in Zimbabwe anymore: he spent the bulk of his time in modern-day East Africa, where he had set up a research facility to whet his scientific appetite. Ninurta radioed Enki to alert him of the gravity of the crisis at hand. To Ninurta’s surprise, Enki responded that even he was not in a position to defuse it; only Enlil as Earth’s Chief Executive could. Enlil was forthwith sent for and wasted no time in flying over. Enlil, the Bible’s Jehovah/Yahweh, arrived in Zimbabwe with guns blazing. He was fuming and snorting: heads were certainly going to roll. The miners’ gesture amounted to treason, he charged: if sufficient quantities of gold were not being shipped to Nibiru, the planet itself would be sabotaged, with incalculable losses of lives from the Ozone breach. But if Enlil thought by flexing executive muscle he was throwing a deterrent scare into the miners, he was in for a rude shock. For the moment he arrived, the miners upped the ante: they set all the mining tools on fire, besieged his residence near the mining plant, and swore they were not going to let him go back to the Edin till he had issued instructions that they be put on a spaceship back home. At once staggered and humiliated, Enlil summoned Enki from his East African base. Enki arrived with his son Ningishzidda, followed by Ninmah. Enlil wondered to Enki what on Earth was happening; Ninurta had already intimated to his father that Enki’s laid-back approach to supervision had precipitated the rowdy indiscipline that was now in evidence. Enki said the miners were not being insubordinate: their gripe was understandable and their direct supervisor Ennugi would be the first to vouch for this. Indeed, when Ennugi was fetched to give his side of the story, he sided with the miners. “Ever since Earth’s heat has been rising, the toil is excruciating, unbearable it is,” he stated according to Enki’s reminiscences (The Anunnaki had come to Earth during an Ice Age). Ninurta too was sympathetic with the plight of the miners. “Let the rebels to Nibiru return,” he suggested. “Let new ones come in their stead.” Enlil of course would not countenance such a course of action: it would reflect a jelly-kneed cave-in by the planet’s ultimate authority. So turning to Enki, he implored: “Perchance new tools you can fashion? For the Anunnaki Heroes the tunnels to avoid?” In other words, Enlil was suggesting that Enki create robots to mine the gold on behalf of the Anunnaki! Enki excused himself to confer with his son Ningishzidda. Father and son huddled in a corner and after deliberating for some while, they came up with a humdinger of a suggestion which Enki announced thus to the assembly: “Let us create a LULU AMELU, a primitive worker the hardship work to take over. Let the Being the toil of the Anunnaki carry on his back!” Enlil and others were nonplussed. How feasible was such an idea? they wondered. On her part, Ninmah averred: “The task is unheard of! All Beings from a seed have descended, one being from another over eons did develop, none from nothing came!” With an ironic twinkle in his eye, Enki replied: “A secret of the Abzu let me to you reveal: the Being that we need, it already exists! All that we have to do is put on it the mark of our essence!” Does Enki’s statement ring a bell? Well, this is what GENESIS 1:26 reads: “And God said let us make man in our own image and likeness”. Now, the term translated “God” in the verse is actually “ELOHIM” in the Hebrew original. Elohim is a plural term (the singular is “El” or “Eloah”) and it was another name for the top-brass Anunnaki, the so-called Pantheon of the 12 and their immediate families. By “essence”, Enki was referring to what the Anunnaki called the “TE’EMA”. And what was this Te’ema? It was what we today call DNA, which indeed is life’s essence! In short, Enki was saying all the Anunnaki had to do was graft their genes onto the “Being” he was talking about, thereby binding their image and likeness on it and thus enabling it to behave and act intelligently. The being in question was none other than Homo Erectus.
In 2005, the Business & Economic Advisory Council (BEAC) pitched the idea of the establishment of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) to the Mogae Administration.
It took five years before the SEZ policy was formulated, another five years before the relevant law was enacted, and a full three years before the Special Economic Zones Authority (SEZA) became operational.

With the passing of Joshua’s generation, General Atiku, the promised peace and prosperity of a land flowing with milk and honey disappeared, giving way to chaos and confusion.
Maybe Joshua himself was to blame for this shambolic state of affairs. He had failed to mentor a successor in the manner Moses had mentored him. He had left the nation without a central government or a human head of state but as a confederacy of twelve independent tribes without any unifying force except their Anunnaki gods.
If I say the word ‘robot’ to you, I can guess what would immediately spring to mind – a cute little Android or animal-like creature with human or pet animal characteristics and a ‘heart’, that is to say to say a battery, of gold, the sort we’ve all seen in various movies and tv shows. Think R2D2 or 3CPO in Star Wars, Wall-E in the movie of the same name, Sonny in I Robot, loveable rogue Bender in Futurama, Johnny 5 in Short Circuit…
Of course there are the evil ones too, the sort that want to rise up and eliminate us inferior humans – Roy Batty in Blade Runner, Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in The Terminator, Box in Logan’s Run, Police robots in Elysium and Otomo in Robocop.
And that’s to name but a few. As a general rule of thumb, the closer the robot is to human form, the more dangerous it is and of course the ultimate threat in any Sci-Fi movie is that the robots will turn the tables and become the masters, not the mechanical slaves. And whilst we are in reality a long way from robotic domination, there are an increasing number of examples of robotics in the workplace.
ROBOT BLOODHOUNDS Sometimes by the time that one of us smells something the damage has already begun – the smell of burning rubber or even worse, the smell of deadly gas. Thank goodness for a robot capable of quickly detecting and analyzing a smell from our very own footprint.
A*Library Bot The A*Star (Singapore) developed library bot which when books are equipped with RFID location chips, can scan shelves quickly seeking out-of-place titles. It manoeuvres with ease around corners, enhances the sorting and searching of books, and can self-navigate the library facility during non-open hours.
DRUG-COMPOUNDING ROBOT Automated medicine distribution system, connected to the hospital prescription system. It’s goal? To manipulate a large variety of objects (i.e.: drug vials, syringes, and IV bags) normally used in the manual process of drugs compounding to facilitate stronger standardisation, create higher levels of patient safety, and lower the risk of hospital staff exposed to toxic substances.
AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ROBOTS Applications include screw-driving, assembling, painting, trimming/cutting, pouring hazardous substances, labelling, welding, handling, quality control applications as well as tasks that require extreme precision,
AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS Ecrobotix, a Swiss technology firm has a solar-controlled ‘bot that not only can identify weeds but thereafter can treat them. Naio Technologies based in southwestern France has developed a robot with the ability to weed, hoe, and assist during harvesting. Energid Technologies has developed a citrus picking system that retrieves one piece of fruit every 2-3 seconds and Spain-based Agrobot has taken the treachery out of strawberry picking. Meanwhile, Blue River Technology has developed the LettuceBot2 that attaches itself to a tractor to thin out lettuce fields as well as prevent herbicide-resistant weeds. And that’s only scratching the finely-tilled soil.
INDUSTRIAL FLOOR SCRUBBERS The Global Automatic Floor Scrubber Machine boasts a 1.6HP motor that offers 113″ water lift, 180 RPM and a coverage rate of 17,000 sq. ft. per hour
These examples all come from the aptly-named site www.willrobotstakemyjob.com because while these functions are labour-saving and ripe for automation, the increasing use of artificial intelligence in the workplace will undoubtedly lead to increasing reliance on machines and a resulting swathe of human redundancies in a broad spectrum of industries and services.
This process has been greatly boosted by the global pandemic due to a combination of a workforce on furlough, whether by decree or by choice, and the obvious advantages of using virus-free machines – I don’t think computer viruses count! For example, it was suggested recently that their use might have a beneficial effect in care homes for the elderly, solving short staffing issues and cheering up the old folks with the novelty of having their tea, coffee and medicines delivered by glorified model cars. It’s a theory, at any rate.
Already,customers at the South-Korean fast-food chain No Brand Burger can avoid any interaction with a human server during the pandemic. The chain is using robots to take orders, prepare food and bring meals out to diners. Customers order and pay via touchscreen, then their request is sent to the kitchen where a cooking machine heats up the buns and patties. When it’s ready, a robot ‘waiter’ brings out their takeout bag.
‘This is the first time I’ve actually seen such robots, so they are really amazing and fun,’ Shin Hyun Soo, an office worker at No Brand in Seoul for the first time, told the AP.
Human workers add toppings to the burgers and wrap them up in takeout bags before passing them over to yellow-and-black serving robots, which have been compared to Minions.
Also in Korea, the Italian restaurant chain Mad for Garlic is using serving robots even for sit-down customers. Using 3D space mapping and other technology, the electronic ‘waiter,’ known as Aglio Kim, navigates between tables with up to five orders. Mad for Garlic manager Lee Young-ho said kids especially like the robots, which can carry up to 66lbs in their trays.
These catering robots look nothing like their human counterparts – in fact they are nothing more than glorified food trolleys so using our thumb rule from the movies, mankind is safe from imminent takeover but clearly Korean hospitality sector workers’ jobs are not.
And right there is the dichotomy – replacement by stealth. Remote-controlled robotic waiters and waitresses don’t need to be paid, they don’t go on strike and they don’t spread disease so it’s a sure bet their army is already on the march.
But there may be more redundancies on the way as well. Have you noticed how AI designers have an inability to use words of more than one syllable? So ‘robot’ has become ‘bot’ and ‘android’ simply ‘droid? Well, guys, if you continue to build machines ultimately smarter than yourselves you ‘rons may find yourself surplus to requirements too – that’s ‘moron’ to us polysyllabic humans”!
