This blog series contains excerpts from "A Twisted History: Genesis and the Cosmos" -

Another major source of ancient cosmology (and the Biblical accounts) is the Epic of Gilgamesh.  It is telling the same basic story as the Enuma Elish and the Myth of Zu, however the planetary protagonists are not nearly as polarized, i.e., one is not a pure hero and the other a pure villain.  They both have strengths and weaknesses.  They both contributed to the cosmic reality we know today and are given their due.


The main character Gilgamesh is yet another expression of Marduk, the rogue/retrograde planet from the twin sun’s posse.  Like Marduk, Gilgamesh has a split personality.  He is two-thirds god and one-third human.  From the Myth of Zu, we learn that Marduk originally consisted of (and later separated into) three major planets, Mercury (Ninurta), Mars (Adad) and Sedna (Shara/Ningirsu).  Sedna is a trans-Neptune “dwarf planet” and evidently did not qualify as a fully fledged planetary god in ancient times either (see footnote at the bottom).

Like Reuben (the Biblical analog of Mercury), Gilgamesh is highly intemperate and must be disgraced in order to instill some modesty.  The proposed solution is for the goddess Aruru to create a match for him, a twin of Anu (Neptune) who is to be called Enkidu.  The “twin” of Neptune is of course the planet Uranus.  These planets are considered even more similar to each other than Venus is to Earth.

Enkidu is later taken under the wing by another goddess, Ninsun, who states: “Powerful Enkidu, not of my womb’s birthing, I hereby adopt you along with those that (now) favor Gilgamesh.”

The name Ninsun means “Lady Fatted Cow,” which associates her with Biblical Leah, who is also likened to a big cow with “beautiful eyes.”  Both can be associated with our largest planet Jupiter, whose fetching eyes are engendered by massive swirling winds in its atmosphere.  The implication is that neither Gilgamesh nor Enkidu were originally members of Jupiter’s system, but instead formed in the system of the rival twin sun.  In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Enkidu laments having passed through a gate (or "door in the woods") that damaged his hand (Cf the broken wing of Zu).  This is apparently when the trouble first began for him, and seems to reflect the difficult passing of Uranus through a “keyhole” (in terms of celestial mechanics) that then set the stage for an even more devastating impact with Marduk/Gilgamesh.

Here's Looking At You Leah

The first gas giant (“Great Goddess”) of the other sun, namely Saturn, had “created” a second gas giant planet Uranus, even as Jupiter “created” Neptune.  This arrangement is mirrored in Genesis where Leah (Jupiter) brings her maid Zilpah (Neptune) to Jacob and Rachel (Saturn) brings her own lady-in-waiting Bilhah (Uranus) to the big dance.  Both Saturn and Uranus ultimately were captured by our sun, which left only “Marduk” orbiting around the other sun (in retrograde motion with respect to our sun).  Uranus was then figuratively called upon to deal with unruly Gilgamesh.  

Prior to the show-down with Gilgamesh, Enkidu had to first become adapted to his new environment.  Instead of “mating” with the wild animals (crashing into stray interplanetary debris) as before, long-haired Enkidu was to be provided with a temple prostitute.  This is an echo of Tiamat “playing the harlot” with Kingu in the Enuma Elish.  The chosen woman made love to Enkidu over and over, force-fed him with ambrosia and wine, and even dressed him up in feminine royal finery.  In other words, Uranus attracted a new surface and atmosphere from the residual gas and dust of its adopted solar system, which then trailed behind like the flowing robe of a king.  Consequently, Enkidu slackened his pace and assumed the bearing of a god.  He was now ready to be taken by his mistress to challenge Gilgamesh (Mercury/Reuben) along with the “lion” (Adad/Judah) and the “wolf” (Sedna/Benjamin).  The game was on!

Planets that Orbit Planets:

Astronomers find a new type of planet: The 'mega-Earth':

Are super-Earths actually mini-Neptunes?:

Simulation of Two Planets Colliding:

Note: The "countenance" of the planets becomes "angry" upon close approach (as in the tale of Cain and Abel).

Enkidu is said to have “blocked” the passage of Gilgamesh, indicating that the migration of Uranus initiated the impact.  The two locked horns like "bulls" in a shattering crash.  The “knee” of Gilgamesh buckled first and he was turned all the way back.  However, rather than remaining enemies, the two “kissed” and became fast friends.  The main body of the much larger planet Uranus continued in its prograde motion and seems to have followed after one of the three reeling parts of Marduk, the part that would ultimately become the planet Mercury.  

With the blessing of the elders the two grapplers form an alliance to slay the monster Huwawa/Humbaba and vanquish “evil” (binary-star retrograde planetary motion) that is "hated by Shamash" (our “Jacob” sun).    After the defeat of Gilgamesh, Enkidu is called the King (“Kingu”).  The king is dead, long live the king!  The people hope for the return of their new king from his crusade, but he is clearly unwell and must carry his own “body” across the familiar spaces from whence he had earlier come.  Gilgamesh is also fatalistic about the new venture.  He prays to his new sun-god Shamash (rather than his old father Lugalbanda), and offers to carry back “cool water” to him (from the outer solar system).  

Note:  A number of trans-Neptune objects (about a dozen in number) have now been discovered that orbit at a slight tilt with respect to the plane of the solar system. Mythologically, these planetoids associate with the so-called “Followers of Horus.”  This offset appears to be related to the exact nature/angle of the collision between Uranus and “Marduk.”  These trans-Neptune planetoids have very long but pro-grade orbits around the sun.  The latest Extreme Trans-Neptune Object (ETNO), dubbed 2012 VP113 or "Biden" for the moment, was announced in 2014. In contrast, a large percentage of comets, such as Halley’s Comet, have retro-grade orbits, which may be a vestige of our original binary star system.  Mike Brown, who discovered Sedna, is still expecting to find one more ETNO of planetary size.
