from the Chronicles of Enoch
Chapter 4 - Genius of the Few
to the Great House and the Reservoir, there was one other edifice
at Kharsag, which should have drawn Enoch's attention in the
Garden in Eden. Without it, it would be quite impossible to
state with any assurance that the places were one and the same.
With it, all the loose ends fall into place, and the argument
is complete. This edifice was the Building of Knowledge in which
Ninkharsag and her teams of Serpent scientists researched the
ecology of the area, and devised cures for the various plant
diseases that they discovered.
PP] After this, the men brought me to the sixth haven,
and there I saw seven groups of Angels, very bright and wonderful,
with their faces shining brighter than the Sun. They were
brilliant, and all dressed alike and looked alike.
of these Angels study the movements of the Stars, the Sun
and the Moon, and record the peaceful order of the World.
Other Angels, there, undertake teaching and give instruction
in clear and melodious voices. These are the Archangels, who
are promoted over the ordinary Angels. They are responsible
for recording (and studying) the fauna and the flora in both
the Highlands and the Lowlands.
are Angels who record the seasons and the years; others who
study the rivers and the seas; others who study the fruits
of the Lowlands, and the plants and herbs which give nourishment
to men and beasts.
there Angels study Mankind and record the behaviour of men,
and how they live.
of the sixth place to which Enoch was taken within Eden is the
fullest statement that we have, anywhere, of the actual daily
activities of the Angels/Anannage in the Settlement of Eden/Kharsag.
And the extraordinary conclusion, which we find that we cannot
avoid, is that these activities appear to be compatible with
the scientific interests of an exploration expedition into unknown
country. Its members appear to have been studying every facet
of science which such an expedition would require - from geology
to botany, and from astronomy to anthropology.
goes even further, and provides a rational explanation for the
religious concept of the Recording Angel - and the writing down
of the good, and bad, deeds of men. From this account, we can
now understand that these angel investigators were only observing
Mankind from anthropological, genetic and psychological viewpoints
- they were not concerned with 'guilt' or 'original sin:
which can now be seen as superimpositions by later, misunderstanding,
be right when he claims that 'History began at Sumer'. But Prehistory,
and prehistorical science in particular, began at Kharsag in
Eden - and for our knowledge of this, we can thank Enoch and
the scribes of Sumer.
