The Flood is a fact of life in the Cosmos, and is caused by a wide variety of sources ranging from an isolated supernova to the merging of entire galaxies.  In 4 billion years of existance, Earth must have endured nearly the entire gamut of flood events, and yet here it still is!  In a sense, the entire planet of Earth is an Ark.  It is a repository of life in a staggering diversity of forms.  It need serve no higher purpose than that. And this is the message that seems to be conveyed in the Biblical story.  Noah’s mandate was to both save life and remain alive, but not to remain as the gods.  He was reduced from god-king to caretaker.

Flood myths are found the world over.  The Greeks knew of three floods and three flood heroes.  Between the deluge that ended the last Ice Age and the time of the Bible’s writing, thousands of years had passed and numerous devastating floods had occurred.  The Book of Genesis telescopes all of these into a single “one-size-fits-all” account (Genesis 6-9), and places it at the end of a list of Egyptian Middle Kingdom rulers (Genesis 5).  Although this may seem odd, the Egyptian Middle Kingdom was in fact terminated by the last of the epic floods in ancient times that plagued Egypt.  The structure of Genesis was carefully architected.

The totality of floods that the human race had to survive were of such magnitude that they are depicted in Genesis as a repetition of the flood that defined the formation of our solar system itself, that being the one caused by a collision between “Marduk” and “Kingu” as told in the Enuma Elish and between “Gilgamesh” and “Enkidu” in the Epic of Gilgamesh.  Noah (Hebrew Nuw-akh) is placed in the role of Kingu/Enkidu.  Nuw-Akh is, in effect, a new-Akh (a neo-Osiris), who was laid on his back, shut up inside his own ark, and then set adrift on the sea.  Like the Egyptian god Osiris, Noah “came forth” from his dark ordeal alive.  The Hebrew word used for ark is derived from the Egyptian word for “coffin,” and the proportions of the ark are likewise that of a sarcophagus.  This is of course the intended symbolic message.  Earthly experience is being depicted as a cosmic rite of passage.

Like “Kingu,” the kingship of Noah was sacrified for the good of mankind.  Like “Enkidu,” Noah won the immediate battle, but lost the war.  His sacrificial effort allowed human (royal) life to go on, but he lost his exalted rank.  Like “Osiris,” Noah fell on his ass after getting drunk on wine.  Noah’s “son” Ham helped him complete the undignified part of the typecasting by assuming the role of Ullikummis (Shara, an aspect of Marduk) and penetrating his “father” where the sun don’t shine.  In planetary terms, Noah is in the role Uranus, which was knocked flat on its back from a cosmic combination shot and then floated away until it washed up in a new and distant orbital home.

Prior to the Flood, Noah had earned his bones by carrying out the commands of his superiors, the gods, and no matter how much hardship this placed upon his fellow man.  After the Flood, it was time for Noah to take his rest.  There were no more monuments to build and no more terra firma to subdue.  The "Post-Deluge Covenant” was simply one of “Occupy Earth.”  Upon the unwarranted disgrace of Ham’s son Canaan (as a neo-Cain/Neptune), Shem became the priestly (spiritual) founder of the new line.  But, it was Japheth that assumed the political (material) power.  In terms of cosmology, this progression echoed that of Jupiter in re-assuming the central (“big brother”) role in governing the early planetary system and ensuring a relatively safe place for life to develop on Earth.

Note:  The baby Moses was also set adrift within an “ark.”  This was a deliberate identification with both Noah and especially Ham son of Noah.  Although the role of Moses is primarily that of Marduk/Gilgamesh, an aspect of the Noah role was also incorporated, perhaps because Ham was in the Ark with Noah.  This will be a subject for a dedicated section on Moses.
