The book of Genesis is the Bible's testament about God and his creation. As the introduction to Christianity, the Book of Genesis included God in his interference with men. It also constitutes the knowledge base of the Christian religious belief serving as a connection to the spiritual world. From the formation of the Universe to the creation of Adam and Eve, the Genesis provided a highly abstract account of our physical Cosmos and its creator. On that account, the Genesis is far to be self-explanatory and highly controversial. Of its author, most Christian schools believe that it was the work of God. Many however speculate that it was the work of Moses or one of his descendants. The statement is based on the fact that the exodus' account was happening during Moses's time. Our own speculation is that the Genesis was compiled by a Middle Eastern local of the Abrahmic School and was most likely a close family member of Abraham. It was compiled in such a way that God was conveyed to be a local of Judea (Ur) and all his legacies had their root in Mesopotamia. The ill distinction of God and his effect that was carried on by western schools had led to the wrong impression that Middle East was actually the site of God's dwelling and the birthplace of the very first human couple in biological form.
On the source of the Genesis*
The source of the Genesis is as controversial as its content. With no reference, its bibliography was also up to speculation. Many scholars believe that it was retrieved from the Torah, which was on its own account including myths from earlier Sumerian clay tablets. For instance, the epic of Noah Flood had been compiled according to the Sumerian Flood Myth that was in turn imported from Southeast Asia. On the same premise, we shall also assert that Southeast Asia was actually the source of most the myths that were found inscribed in ancient Sumerian tablets and later included in western scriptures. It is interesting to note that many other versions of the same myth, were found spreading around the world but could be proved to originate from Southeast Asia (Civilization: Notes: Manu Vaivavata). Their disparity could be explained as the outcome of the overall spreading of languages, also mentioned in the Genesis. On the same token, other accounts of the Torah and the Bible's book of Genesis could also be proved as refined stories of the Sumerian folklore brought by the Meru court to Middle east. Through refinement, many of the accounts took the abstract form and became myths according to Paganist contemporary practices. Done through references to their earlier versions, many of the Genesis' s accounts could then be deciphered or explained to shed more light on the whole development of the Man Race in correlation to the work of God. Historical data could also be verified to be included as part of the whole world's historical background.
OF GOD AND HIS CREATION
In the account of Adam and Eve, the Genesis had made it clear that God foreboded Adam and Eve not to consume the fruit of Knowledge (of God and Evil). There are many interpretations so far done by both Christian schools and scientific institution alike. The interpretation however diverged greatly from each other when addressing to the notion of God and fail to answer why God forbid Adam and his companion Eve from consuming the fruit of Knowledge. We shall assert in our own interpretation that the notion of God is simply too complex for human comprehension and that modern men are better off without that knowledge. With that precaution put in place, we shall start on our odyssey to set sight on God of the Genesis while at the same time investigating on his creativity as described in Western scriptures.
The Notion of God *
To embark on this complex topic, we shall remind ourselves that the notion of God is out of reach of human comprehension. No concept of physical science could ever define or undefine the notion of the supernatural world. As the supreme God of the Universe, we know that his manifestation was worldwide and that many existing religions of today were actually records of his effect. We shall correlate the notion of God in Genesis with that of divinity found in Christianity and in other religious cosmogonies that are available in both Hindu and Buddhist disciplines, as well as of the Sumerian and other mythologies. In Christian belief, God presented himself in the world of men through three different forms. The Son of God who is the hero of the New Testament and the main object of Christianity was not found in the Genesis. The reference to Jesus Christ is specific to be a man, born from a human couple Marie and Joseph. On the contrary, the Godfather was proclaimed to be universal, as a representation of God himself. Unlike Jesus Christ, the insight of him is limited. In most accounts, he presented himself in Holy Ghost or spiritual (abstract) form. Since past encounters also happened in a very few occasions and in selected sites, there was emphasis of making his presence restricted to Middle east only. As his involvement was mostly with Middle Eastern communities and not with Europe and the rest of the whole world, Jew, Christian and Muslim practitioners were made to believe that the Godfather was theirs and to the worst case only theirs. That is contradicting to their own instilled notion of a universal God taught as a father' s figure of all mankind who took responsibility for the whole world' s welfare. The universality of the notion of God leads us to look for correlation with other school of believes since they are worshipping the same God. In the Sumerian cosmology, the word "God" is in fact equivalent to the word "Yang" of the Austroasiatic folklore. Of its abstract form, God or Yang is referring to the supreme authority of the Universe. Of its concrete form, God or Yang is a title referencing to a living god in his specific mission dealing with the physical world. For example what is God in the Noah Flood was actually Yang Bot of the Khmer-mon epic flood 's story (Prehistory: The Noah Flood). The pre-Hindu discipline identified him as King Manu, the progenator of the Man Culture. Known in Buddhist tradition as King Samantha, Yang Bot was a Buddhisatva who started our current Kappa in the search for his enlightenment. His mission was actually to sustain humanity during the Great Flood and create a new generation of the Man Race after the catastrophic event. He was later deified as Lord Brahma by the Hindu Cosmology and became the father of Bramhanism. In Western Culture, he was actually the living god whose interference in the Epic Flood was the starting point of his intervention in the next human development. We shall identify that the God Father of the Genesis was actually the combined essence of the Sumerian divinity that consisted mainly of Yang Put and the Meru' s legacies as the progenator of the new world civilization. The lack of God's sight, as we shall see, could be attributed to the un-completeness of the Genesis in regard to the Moon God Tsin' s Middle Eastern development. It confirms the Meru's exodus from Ur (Judea) that was in fact in accordance to the cosmic transition of the living gods in Sumerian discipline of the Trinity.
The living gods
In all existing theologies, the most common of all God' s manifestation in humanity was actually his incarnation into a living form. For religious believers, the living god is often referred as God himself. He is characterized as different from a regular human being by his spirituality and his specific mission that he is long for completion during his human lifetime. While a human being is born and reborn according to his normal birth-death cycle, a Man is born from a divinity background and most importantly with a mission to accomplish. For instance, Buddha Gautama was quoted to come from the divinity plane of Tusita and he was born as a Man to search for enlightenment and his ultimate mission was to establish for humanity (Buddhist) rationality. Born as a human being, he is biologically subject to the same law of the natural world while his spirit is on the other hand associated to the Supernatural world. His supernatural power, on the other hand, was powerful but less trivial as it is constrained by the natural law. Buddhist discipline moreover restricted a Man's effect as a human being and his achievement was not supposed to be done through supernatural power. Nevertheless, interference from the spiritual consortium, especially of Brahma and Indra, was also emphasized by the Buddhist communities. It is said that Buddha Gautama once had displayed all kind of supernatural manifestation but warned all his disciples not to seek more about the knowledge. He had made it clear that his mission was accomplished mainly through his own merit accumulated through many existences of life in the natural world. In perfect harmony with nature, a buddha functions through his natural powers and his achievement would blend perfectly with natural process or evolution. His ability to perform miracles was often mentioned by followers but hardly proved to the skeptics who see in a living god just a high achieving human being. To believers, a living god can still involve with humanity after his death. Known in western culture as the Holy Ghost, the living god's spirit or Soul can present itself to believers as fire (or energy) or simply interfere into humanity by other spiritual manifestation. With that concept of living god or a Man set in place, we shall emphasize on concrete evidences from the Sumerian world to identify the God (more precisely the living god) of the Genesis who conceived Adam and Eve as the progenitors of modern men. Evidences from the vestiges of its archeology's site indicated that the Sumerians were deeply religious and had already an advanced system of belief incorporated in their societies. From their mythology we know that the God Tsin was then reigning supreme as the God King of the Sumerian Cakravatin Empire (The early civilization: The development of the Sumerian Culture: The Sumerian Culture). We also argued that the same as the Hindu God Siva, the Sumerian God Tsin was a deified Godhead of Meru who was making his way to reign over Middle East through marriage with a local queen of the West. The Buddhist Tradition, on the other hand, confirms that Meru was in the same line of descendants from the primordial King Mahasamanta as had been other Cakravatin monarchs of the Sumerian world. Deified as one of the Trinity Gods, the Hindu Cosmology confirms Meru's rule to be of a complete Yuga. All these findings clearly indicate that Meru was in fact the Living Moon God Tsin of Sumer. Unlike Buddha who went straight to Nirvana after his death, the Moon God Tsin stayed with humanity through more occurrences of birth as a human being. His direct descendants who ruled Mesopotamia as Cakravatin monarchs were also taking part of his Middle Eastern development. This multiple incarnation was necessary in the accomplishments of different Meru's missions and purposes. Through different places and time, Meru was known by many references according to his specific mission. It is interesting to note the reference as Hara (Ho-la) was better known in Muslim world as Allah while Isvara (Isva-la) was better known in the Torah as Yaweh. In Shivaite folklore that binds all Meru' s exploit as the Moon God, Hara and Isvara were two of the many more references to God Shiva.
The Creation of Men *
Like the existence of God, the Creation of men in the book of Genesis is highly abstract and controversial. The problem arose when the birth of Adam and Eve was misinterpreted as the biological creation, through natural process, of men by God (the Moon God Tsin to be exact) in a single event. Further reference would connect the account of human creation to its earlier version of the Meru Culture (The Man Race: The Shan Cosmology: The Human Creation). Retained in the Shan folklore, the account of four gods conceiving human bodies from the dumb clay could have been the original source. However, the mentioning of the four gods (instead of one universal God) was more likely a reference to the last four Buddhas who had attained Nirvana in our current Kappa. According to Buddhist teaching, each Buddha or Man was in the mission of creating his own version of the Man culture. While working on his enlightenment, Buddha Gautama founded our contemporary Buddhist religion that was set to become humanity's new version. On the other had,the formation of human body from the dump clay must to be referenced to a very older version. Unfortunately, the unavailability of such record would limit our undestanding and prevent us from elaboring more of the subject. Like the knowledge of God and Evil, the search for the Knowledge of biologocal human Creation ended up mostly in confusion. Scientists found in the DNA structure, information that might shed light to biological formation of life but it is so complexe that only a small part was by far undestood. Until Science could decode completlely the DNA genome of human specy then the mistery of human creation could be solved. At the mean time, we shall stand firm with the assumption that both the biological human creation and its current humanity are in fact complex and could be modeled as an infinite series of evolution. We had also stated that living gods or Mans had also played important roles in each occurence of the overall evolution. In that sense, we shall restrict the creation of Adam and Eve to the latest occurrence of men' s creation in connection to the formation of Middle Eastern dynasties by Meru. Found in the epic of Gilgamesh and Innana, the creation of modern men started with the trips of the two offspring of the Moon God Tsin to the Garden of Eden in the Netherworld. Just after their creation, they were duped by the female serpent to eat the Fruit of Knowledge and received God's punishment. Out of the Garden, Adam and Eve went on building their own family tree that evolved into modern days humanity. The Genesis had not much to say about their lives nor about their acquired sins. The lack of information gave us the impression that Adam and Eve continued to worship God despise the latter' s apparent tough resolution against them. Indication however suggested that their first son Cain, soon followed his parents' s tradition in challenging God 's authority. Historically, it happened when an obscure figure named Sargon emerged from Kish to invade Mesopotamia and built the Akkadian Empire on the conquered territory wrested from the previous Sumerian Dynasty of Ur. Indication also shows that he was from the Egyptian court of the Dynasty 6 (2350-2170 BC) and was by no means stranger to the Sumerian Court of Ur. His conquest of Mesopotamia was part of the overall Kambojan development against the overall Meru stronghold of the Mesopotamia. Historians noticed that after taking hold of Mesopotamia, Sargon continued on the tradition of Sumer. However they also notice major developments that set the next Semetic societies to diverge completely from the original Sumerian Culture. Among the changes, the build-up of military strength by paid soldiers for the service of the ruler and his court was clearly a practice that was never done by the Sumerian court before. His odissey became later the source of western tradition of Seth ursurping the throne of Egypt from his sibling Osiris. His reign was also closely connected to Chronos or the Titan king whose venture in eastern Europe and Central Asia had led to emergence of the Greek Empire.
THE GARDEN OF EDEN
Another controversial attribution to God is the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve lived until they were chased out after breaking God's rule. As hinted in the Genesis, many scholars had look in vain for any indication that prove the Garden to be located between the Tigris and the Euphrate rivers. Despite the fact that local people of Middle East have no recollection of such location, scholars are still believing that the torrid region between the two rivers was once the site of the well irrigated Garden of Eden where God was dwelling before he conceived Adam and Eve. Going into the deep past, we had argued that the Flood Myth of the Genesis was itself imported into Mesopotamia by the Sumerians from Southeast Asia (Prehistory: The Flood Myths: The Noah Flood). On the same premise, We shall argue that the Garden of Eden' s location was also in the East.
The Orchard of the Man Culture *
In the account of Adam and Eve eating the forbidden fruits of Knowledge, the Genesis did not provide any specific reference of what kind of fruit they ate. Perhaps to make the story more appealing to the general audience, folkclore added natural flavor into the account. When Adam ate the fruits, it is said that one of the fruits was stacked in his throat. The Adam's Apple is actually the lump of Adam's throat caused by the fruit. Through inheritance, all his male descendants are born with it. On the other hand, Eve and her female descendants would have to suffer childbirth as a punishment from God of her initiation to consume the forbidden fruit. The myth was by all means unscientific and to say the least unrealistic, but through time and space it creates wrong delusion to many practitioners into believing it as a true fact. Many other accounts of the Genesis also contained similar abstract reference that create misinformation when trying to make direct interpretation. The location of the Garden of Eden itself is one among the mystified places of the Bible. The same way that many other ancient sacred places were found to be all around the world, we shall argue that the garden's location was not orininally between the two Rivers of Mesopotamia but was later transplanted by the Sumerian court at Ur. Either as the God 's dwelling place or the cultural birthplace of human specie, the Gaden of Eden was one among many other pre-Meru' legacies that predated Ur (The Man Race: the Human Civilization: The Eden of the Man Culture). As itself evolved from Brahmanism, the Meru Culture was actually originated at the eastern footstep of Himalaya. Located in the heart of the tropical region, Southeast Asia was well disposed to be much more than the orchard of tropical fruit trees. To its deep past in antiquity, we had argued that it was also the orchard of many ancient cultures that became later the staple for human development around the world. Due to its geographical isolation, their remnants were preserved and could be found to exist until recent days spreading among the indigenous tribes of the deep forest. For instance, we had argued that the jin communities as well as the Shans of Burma still retained the original version of the Meru 's Culture (The Man Race: The Shan Cosmology: The Transition from the Makara to the Meru Culture). Going into a deeper past, evidences of more ancient cultures were also present in isolated place of Autroasiatic Lawa communities that were proved to be the remnants of the ancient Hoabinhian Agriculturist society. Among them, were worshipers of the Sun God ' s ancestry who still practiced the art of headhunting and cannabalism as noted in Chinese sources (Kamboja Desa: The exploit of Funan: Pi kien or the Island of the Kambujas). Due to the lack of information, we have no idea on how such practices had been initiated at the first place. We know however that the bad practices became later base of the forbidden Knowledge (of the God and Evil) that was banned by the Meru Culture.
The Knowledge of God and Evil *
To look for the real nature of the forbidden fruit, we shall recourse to the Sumerian records of Gilgamest and Innana making their trips to the Netherland where the Garden of Eden is located. The highly mystic account conveys that they were looking to find solution for their own dilemmas. In conjunction with the birth of Seth, our interpretation is that they were actually looking to build their own empire. Instead of finding the Meru societies where they can get the Fruit of Life, they found instead supernatural practitioners among the local Lawa tribesmen whom they recruited to carry on the rituals for their own kingship. These religious figures were from the Sun worshipping Bull shamans who were masters of ancient magical art of spiritual preservation. There are evidences that in its application, the knowledge could extend human physical life itself, which led to the emergence of the race of giants (Yakkhas) in the early phase of the Kambojan rising (Kamboja Desa: The Exploit of Funan: Pi kien or the Island of the Kambujas). In Buddhist tradition, Nagadvipa was then infested by the Yakkhas. Buddha Gautama had to venture out of his safety zone to drive the Yakkhas out from the Nagadvipa. Rooted from the dawn of human creation, it was another wrong application of the knowledge that allowed humen to build spiritual world without the consent of God (Notes: The Golden Bull). Banned by both the Sivaite and Buddhist schools, the knowledge gradually disappeared from Southeast Asia but had its flourishing debut at its Middle Eastern new homeland. With the help of the Devilish shamans, the descendants of Adam started on their own odyssey to build their pantheons and to claim themselves as divinities. To catch the eye of the onlookers, they started to furnish themselves with the images of God and his subordinate court's members. In Buddhist temples of today, one could see the presentation of Buddha' s images in display everywhere inside a pagoda. It could be checked out that the first images were made during the Hellenistic era where Greek influence had been found in earlier Mauryan and later Gupta's empire. While the practice is harmless, the images often induce the wrong perception that without Buddha's images displayed, Buddhist temples fail to convey the symbolic representation of Buddhism itself. Back in Greece of the ancient time, it was a common practice that the images of God and Goddess were erected everywhere for both public view and worshipping. What might upset God the most was that all God' s images are human, an object of their own imagination. The bad practices moreover convey upon others who are outside of their communities to accept that their God was real. In the Egyptian pantheons, the practice was even more widespread as many Godheads of strange forms were depicted for the same purpose of Idoling human spirit into godhead. From the account of Gilgamesh and Innana trips to the Netherworld, we conclude that the Egyptian priests learned this knowledge from a group of Brahmans who were specialized in Paganism from Southeast Asia. The knowledge was used not only for extending the spiritual life of the person after death but also used for other sinister purposes as well. Mummification of a dead body is the most common practice in Egypt from the belief that a person's spirit could be trapped in his own preserved body. Evidences from archeology show that the practices were performed freely despite God's objection. It is said that it was started by the queen Isis in her attempt to restore her slain husband's life. By doing so, she introduced a new deity that was going to challenge the supremacy of the Moon God Tsin and changed the western cosmogony for good. What is even more dangerous was the knowledge of preserving the spirit into an idol that can be invoked trough complex rituals and sacrifices. While God spiritual presence and getting blessing is up to God's grace, the idol's spirit is always there for the invocation. In a high stake situation, Isis was under spell of the Kala Yuga that brought the Middle Eastean Meru Culture to start declining. Her decision however was not of her own and was conforming to the next evolution of the Sumerian Cosmology. On the other hand, the Hindu folklore already introduced Lord Vishnu as another cosmic figure. One of his incarnations, Rama, was actually the spiritual preservation of the Ramaseus's dynasty by mummification. This campaign to undermine God 's rule is no less sinister in the history of human evolution. To give the final blow, Zeroastrianism then introduced a single God' s concept that created more confusion in the western political arena. By launching the God Ashura as the only God of the Universe, the decline of the Meru Culture accelerated. Known as Soleiman or Solomon, the new Godhead challenged the Aryaman and further distress Meru' s position among his worshippers. From the time that the queen Isis adopted the Sun God Ra, the Western World was mistaken the God Ashura as their only God Creator. Since then, the Sun God Ra and his Eagle Symbol became the icon of the Western World until modern day.
The Tree of Life
Before he entered Nirvana, Buddha Gautama conveyed to his disciple that knowledges are in fact numerous as a full dense forest of trees. Buddha also warned and discouraged men from digesting wrong knowledge because of their serious harmful side effects. Among them, the Tree (of Knowledge) of God and Evil is one of such knowledge that tempted Adam and Eve but was already banned by the Moon God Tsin. After their sin was discovered, they were chased out from the Garden of Eden . Since then, many historical figures were looking for the Tree of Life of which the fruits could extend life without having to alienate against God. The same as many other trees (of knowledge), the tree is no where to be found. We shall argue that the Tree of Knowledge as well as the Tree of Life was not a real botanic fruit tree as many Christans still believes, but was actually an abstract representation of the knowledge. (Notes: The Sumerian knowledge base of Life). It is in fact the extention of Natural Science through cosmic energies as had been taught in the Sumerian religious institution. In its original forms, it started with the Trinity that consists of three divine energies represented by the Sun God, the Moon God and the Ahura (Eclipse) God. While both the Sun and the Moon were of concrete and of natural nature, the eclipse was just an optical effect created by the movement of the Sun and the Moon in reference to the earth. In correlation to the banning the Tree of Knowledge and the promotion of the Tree of Life, the Sumerian school and revised the concept of Trinity to exclude Sura completely from its list of divinity. The Sivaite school later extended the Sumerian cosmos into seven spiritual planes based on the spectrum of the Seven energies (The early civilization: The Development of the Sumerian Culture: The Sky Gods and the Spectrum of Energies). Each plane has its own space and Time dimension that makes its cosmos unique in its environment. The Buddhist discipline moreover adds Nirvana on top of all seven planes. Unlike the other planes, Nirvana is the only timeless and spaceless plane where the notion of Birth and Death has no meaning and was where Buddhahood actually resides. Between the planes there are more or less paths or tunnels connecting each one to the others (Notes: The Connecting Path). The connecting path between Nirvana and the Meru plane is quoted to be the most direct of all the tunnels between other spiritual planes. In the Meru cosmogony, each living god or Man is associated to a reign of a Yuga. The Kappa (or superYuga) is on the other hand refers to the time frame that all seven spiritual energies complete their reign. Our Kappa started with the primordial King Manu or the Man who, after the Great Flood, initiated the Man Culture to humanity. Following on his footstep, his descendent spread out the Man Culture worldwide. Known also as the Jin (the God Tsin in the Sumerian tablet), the next living god Meru started his reign at the Western World and established the Moon Culture that was actually the progression of the Man Culture. Last and not least, Buddha Gautama attained Nirvana and created Buddhism that will last through the next half of Yuga. According to Buddha Gautama' s own prophecy, the last half Yuga of his religion would be carried on by the next Buddhisatva who is Metreiya. Metreiya will complete his duty to safeguard humanity until the end of this current Kappa and as king Samanta did before him, started on his own Kappa. Metreiya will be the last of the five buddhas to attain Nirvana during our superkappa that took five Kappas of human's world to complete. Equivalence to a day of the Brahma' s plane, the Superkappa is so far the biggest time frame known in the Buddhist cosmology. According to Buddhist discipline, our own galaxy the Milky Way would last only through a finite number of Superkappas since it is subjected to the same rule as other impermanent entity. It is the preparation of human souls for the final catastrophic event that the cyclic mission of the Buddhahood is taking places.
THE MAKING OF THE WESTERN WORLD
We had argued that the Aryan culture was conceived by the Aryaman or Meru who was then the Lord of the world (The Man Race: The Meru Culture: The Aryan Identity). As it center was transient, the culture had spread itself along its transitional path around the mount Himalaya. Through its long journey, it is expected that the cultural expansion created diversion or difference through out the whole development. At each stop, religious schools added their own amendment deemed necessary for their own environment and political application. While most remained faithful to the core' s concept, many yielded to their own bad practices. Through its own ingenuity, each region created its own version that suited its own need. The difference of practicality, as we shall see, caused the cultural divergence of the Western civilization from its core Meru Culture, starting from the early birth of modern men themselves.
The Birth of Modern Men *
In the Sumerian cosmology, the God Tsin was the father of all. The conflict started when Gilgamesh and Ishta, went their separate ways to form their own pantheons. To accomplish their ambition, both had to make the trip to the Netherworld looking for the Tree of Life. Suffered all kind of harassment, they nevertheless succeeded in promoting their own ventures. After returning back from the Netherworld, the faith of both Gilgamesh and Ista had changed. In their own drive, two new versions of Middle Eastern scriptures were written and became the backbone of two new religious systems of Middle Eastern origin. In their Genesis, they presented their ordeals as the birth of Adam and Eve, created by God at the Garden of Eden. They presented themselves as the latest of God's creation and was innocent to the extend of being naïf. Just after their creation, they were duped by the female serpent to eat the Fruit of Knowledge. By breaking God's rule, they received God's punishment and were chased from the garden. To many scholars, God's punishment appears to be more severe than the crimes that they had committed. In fact, the Genesis left out important details that could justify God's judgment. Apparently, men continued to worship God despite the latter' s apparent tough resolution against them. What is missing was actually a complete knowledge of God and Evil that they digested in the attempt of becoming equal to God himself. The effect of the knowledge of God and Evil that they acquired and made use of it without God' s consent, as we shall see, was the primary cause of human crises and suffering then and now. Their next problem started when they gave birth to Cain and Abel. After growing up, the two siblings started to fight between themselves. Their feud became the catalyst of the next chain of events that plagued Middle East crisis until modern days. It was usually preached in any temples of Middle Eastern religious institution that the two were fighting for the love of God. Contesting for God's favor, both brothers were locked in a deadly battle that ended in the murder of Abel by Cain. This involvement of God in the politic world of men could be detected in many aspects of western culture. Rationality proved that the two were fighting otherwise for themselves. Lost in their rivalry, their fight got out of hand and by their own doing drove the western world into a chaos state of no return. Along with the practices, western communities drifted further and further apart from their Godfather while the worshipping of him was, at the contrary, at full force. The birth of their next offspring, Seth, was nonetheless consoling but was neither a blessing. Like other modern men, Seth exercised his free will to promote his own agenda. After he usurped the Egyptian throne, the relationship between God and the Western World became more and more strained. Archeology proves that the ruler of the Egyptian throne under the name of Ku-fu was actually the progenitor of the 12th dynasty (1980-1630 BC) of Egypt. In connection to Southeast Asia, king Ku-fu might have been a descendant of Sri Kambu, or perhaps Sri Kambu himself, whose presence in the court of Egypt resulted in the emergence of the western Kamboja (Kamboja Desa: The Kamboj legacy: The Identity of Sri Kambu). Evidences also proved that he was ruling as a universal monarch of both Upper and Lower Egypt. It signals the challenge set by the new Egyptian Dynasty of Sri Kambu against the Mesopotamian suzerainty of the Sumerian Moon God Tsin. By attempting to launch a God's image out of himself, Seth dragged the rest of humanity into a state of confusion. Supposedly worshipping the same God, modern men' s misconception started with their insight of him. As religious schools were competing for recognition, each religious leader created the image of God to make it appealing to their own liking. The practices resulted into making many different images (of God) that along with popular demands produced many version of God's identity. While variety of divine figures was introduced in the new Semetic cosmology, the Moon God Tsin was apparently more and more forgotten. Once a supreme God of the Sumerian Pantheon, the God Tsin (or Meru) was in the odyssey of fighting for his own Lordship as the next history of modern men was particularly connected to the drive of men against God's will.
The Pyramid' s Scheme and the Dispersion of Modern Men *
After taking control of the Egyptian throne, Ku-fu started on an ambitious project to build his pyramid. Until now, scholars still are not clear about his rational to build such a big monument. Evidences however show that Ku-fu had established himself as a Cakravatin monarch and that he moved the Middle Kingdom from Mesopotamia to the heart of Egypt. His action clearly undermined the earlier work of Meru (Notes: The Tower of Babel). To elevate himself to the status of a Cakravatin monarch, Ku-fu built the Pyramid to enhance his own personal euphoria. Ku-fu built the Pyramid not to please but instead to contest the power of God. The temptation to challenge God 's will was emphasized in the western tradition after Adam and Eve broke God' s trust in the Garden of Eden. By its size alone, the Pyramid induced prestige that only God could command. It became since a symbol for greatness and stability that stayed still until today. This stability-induced image of eternity was basically what the Western World based their concept of civilization on. It was basically the bad effect from eating the fruit of knowledge (of God and Evil). God was emphasized as a figurehead that took control of every action of men's destiny while the latter . While part of the belief is true, it took away the accountability of men' s own action. Not only that this belief is wrong, it also contradict head-on with God' s original purpose. It is clearly mentioned in any scriptures that modern men were created by God to have their own free will. What missing is the condition that comes along with that gift of God. Along with their free will, they are expected to be responsible of their own action. At the contrary, modern men ignored their obligation to God and to other human beings while exercising their own will; they stopped at nothing to take advantage of their own privilege. Their policy is to take care of themselves first then to handle God's retaliation later. In replacing the Tree of Life, Egyptian royal houses were particularly obsessed with the extension of life after death. Along with mummification, stone monuments were also built to stay. During the time, Egyptian Pharaohs were commanding the Cakravatin Empire and had all the resources for himself to build his pyramid. On their way up, they built their dedicated monument, stone by stone, hoping that when they died their body and mind could reside in it undisturbed. They might be right in many ways since the pyramids that they built lasted longer, even after their empire had been long crumbled. Needless to say, the western concept of eternity stayed on until modern days. Western nations that were fighting for their own longitivity also looked for the extension of life through materialism. Capitalism was basically formed after the concept that stones shall be collected and kept to sustain the pyramid's lifetime. The problem arose when there were not enough stones for every one to build their own pyramid. The same as any other resource exploited from the earth, the supply of stones is not unlimited. As the fight for resources was necessary, wars were made to look as a noble cause for a nation to achieve its greatness. The drive for self-security moreover took the upper hand and became basically the causes of current worldly crisis. The Persians, the Greeks and later the Romans took turns to conquer other nations and built their colonial empire based on military power. Through wars and conquests, the western colonization turned global and in the process transformed the whole world into a battleground. While the winners enjoyed all the benefits that only war could provide, the losers were made as war commodities. They were often drawn in a supporting role for another campaign against other target. As long as there were conquests to be made, the colonization brought along its path a sensation of success. As the mass generally suffered, only the top few and theirs close alliances were benefiting from the ordeals. Even then they would face with their own dilemmas. In their own environment, rivalry was already taking the upper hand and became the cause of many skirmishes that led to more open fighting. To their credits, two worldly wars were already committed. Yet they were still enjoying the prestige and support from many layers of their societies. While educational institutions appeared to be mute against governmental bad policies, religious institutions, not only failed to stop the aggression but, at the contrary, appeared to join in the campaign.
The Sins of Men *
It is said that Adam was created in God image and according to Middle Eastern belief, he could be as much powerful as God himself. He became God's favorite and was brought to the highest rank of all God's subject. With favoritism under focus, God's decision induced widespread jalousie in his court. When Satan refused to bow before Adam, God banished him with his fellow angels from heaven. Satan and his followers could then be identified as members of the Sumerian court who were evicted from Ur during the early reign of Ku-fu at Egypt and brought their know-how to form their own communities outside the ream of the Meru Empire. The height of his status and the bride of his look were the source of his prejudice and the cause of his downfall. Downcasted, they were driven down by God from heaven to the underworld which was, according to the Sumerian folklore, the Gangetic India. They were in fact the first spreaders of the Aryan Culture at the Gangetic India that was then still untapped by the Meru Culture (The Indus Valleye: The early civilization: The Arianization of the Transgangetic India). According to Western scripture, Satan is said to spend the rest of his existence driving men astray from God and by doing so was perceived as the antichrist (AntiMeru or MArA). His action and his close association with the Pagan priests who were later responsible for the falling of the court of Seth later induced the Abrahamic schools to refer him as the Devil himself (Notes: Satan vs Devil). After chasing satan out, God would find in his two beloved creatures imperfection that broke his heart. According to western believes, Adam and Eve became later the victim of their own sin against God's will. Under the influence of the female serpent, they consumed the fruit of knowledge of God and Devil. After the death of Abel, killed by his own brother Cain, the next generation of man race continued on exploring their Godly potential without God's guidance. Unconcerned with the original God's plan, Seth rose up to become the monarchs of the Middle Kingdom' s Dynasty. Under his rulership, evidences show that Ur and the rest of Mesopotamia became part of Egypt. It was perhaps from this time on that Ur received its Semetic name of Babylon. After a millinium of glory, Seth' s enterprise was scrambling and ready to collapse. The next God's interference could be seen as another attempt to draw men back to him. Abraham was instructed by God to make a trip to Egypt to meet the Jews who were then the power holder of Egypt. Originated from Ur, Abraham was chosen because he was one of the most faithful to God that could ever been found in Judea, let alone in Middle East. Being the stronghold of the Sumerian Cultural Center of the past, it is not a surprise that the Old Faithful to Meru could still be found in Ur. It was a new beginning of God's intervention with the descendants of Adam of which circumstances already indicated a bad omen to come to the court of Egypt. Unconcerned of his fate, Pharaoh was more interested in the beauty of Sarah than to the message of God brought by Abraham. Pharaoh chased Abraham out of Egypt after finding out that Sarah was the latter' s wife and that his advance to her appeared to trigger the bad omen to himself and to his court. Pharaoh did obviously not want to stand God's intervention and instead of submitting himself as God's subject, he ejected Abraham (and his God) out of his court. The next accounts of the Jew people, descendant of Seth, as well as other references to God's intervention were obscure. It confirms that during the compilation, the universal God who once took care of the Jews like father was mostly forgotten. The only God's legacy that stayed with them was mostly the fear of his retaliation. After Israel was formed, the Jews were once again thriving and lost themselve again to their own agendas. In the Old Testament, the Jews became multitheist and God had to present himself as the God of Abraham just to be not confused with other Gods of the Israelites.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GOD AND MEN
With the knowledge of God and Evil, it is expecting that the Western World was expert of the religious dogma. In the least expectation, they should know exactly about God to whom they revered and his rival (the Devil) to whom they hated. Evidences so far show that it was not the case. As politic and religion mingled together, the notion of God and Evil is often up to the head of state to define and to the head priest of the Church to preach. To make the matter worst, the Moon God Tsin is about to face his tough rivalry from the ancient world. In the Shan Cosmogony, the Eclipse God Rashu was as ancient as his two rivals, the Sun and the Moon (The Man Race: The Shan Cosmology: The Three Celestial Brothers). During the Kala Yuga, the Eclipse God is overtaking the Moon God Tsin. While holding on to his catch, Sura induced modern men to explore their new found knowledge of God and Devil without any concern of God's true feeling.
The Worshipping of Idols *
To resuscitate back the life of her slain husband, it is said that Isris brought eastern priests to perform the necessary rituals of spiritual revival. They were from the Sun worshipper's bull clan who, in turn, brought with them their God Ashura (Sura) and his culture to the West. At the East, the phoenix bird was well known for its mythical power to rise from the ash. At the West, the Phoenix bird changed its form from a peaceful heron, peacock or swan to a more aggressive symbol of a falcon or an eagle. In an adaptation to suit the Western life-style, the Phoenician culture turned on its aggressive mode. In the next development, the Sun God Ra gathered his strength through aggressiveness in Assyria and was making his final preparation to overrun Ur. The battle that was recounted later in the Hindu Epic of Mahabharatha between the Kauruvas and Pandavas marked the next declining phase of the Meru Culture. Led by Krishna, the Pandavas won over their adversary and took control of Ur. While the Kauruvas were forced to surrender, the Sun God Ra took the Egyptian throne and formed the Ramaseus Dynasty of Egypt. As they drove out the last family members of Seth, they also took the rest of the Egyptian Israelites as slave. Like the majority of modern men, the Israelites saw the success story as being mandated by God and they adjusted their faith accordingly. Under the Assyrian rule, they were exposed to many lesser Gods that had been introduced into the mainstream of Egyptian worshipping pantheons. Idols were made to represent Godhead as priests were trying to attract worshippers to attend their institutions. Following the resuscitation of Osiris, mummifying the kings after their death became a common practice in the Egyptian court. The practice could be checked out easily at the time of the New Dynasty after mummies of the Rama Dynasty had been unearthed by archeology. On the belief that the spirit of powerful monarchs could be trapped eternally inside their bodies, one could invoke their spirits for help the same way as praying to God himself. It is important to note that Rama became later consecrated as an avatar of Vishnu. The Ramaseus Dynasty was known to rule the Egyptian throne after dethroning the previous Moses Dynasty and taking their family' s members into slaves. It is important to note that these descendants of Adam had no relationship whatsoever with Abraham who failed to bring them back to God as instructed. When God ordered Moses to lead them out of Egypt for freedom, the Israelites were already fervent to the Egyptian bad practices of worshipping. During their long and hard exodus, their insecurity led them to look for alternate mean of self-assurance beside God. When Moses was absent from their camp out to meet God in mount Sinai, they built the Golden Bull and worshipped it. Under the Assyrian influence, the Israelites had adopted the custom of making Idols and worshipped them before Zoroastranism had promoted Sureiman as the only God against the Sumerian God Tsin. In Christianity, the Devil that represents the antagonist of God, was often idolized as an ergly bull with wings but to the Israelites it was instead an idol of the Golden Bull (The Man Race: The Shan Cosmogony: The Three Celestial Brothers). Fearing God's retaliation, the Israelites came back to their senses. Nevertheless, the incidence was probed to be just another situational adjustment to cope with God's assertion. It was nevertheless during the new start of cosmic fight between the Moon God Tsin and the Eclipse God Ashora, as prescribed in the Shan Cosmogony, that Israel was formed on the Caanite territory. During the fight, the darkness would take over the Moon God Tsin' s world before the God Asura finally releases his catch. In later time, Paganism was invigorated during the early formation of Zoroastrianism when the God Asura launched his next campaign against the Moon God Tsin.
The Wrath of God
Even before the exodus of the God Tsin from Middle East, bad practices had already affected the application of the Meru culture. Growing up into prosperity and fame, modern men (Adam an descendants) made the mistake of pretending that they were invincible. Little they know that their empire would be in turn becoming history. Under their own Sun God Ra, another faction of modern men was formed under the guidance of the Goddess Ishta. They succumbed the rulership of Seth and took the Israelites as slaves. God then instructed Moses to free and to lead the Israelites in the long exodus trip out of Egypt into the so-called Promise Land. After Israel was formed, God set up an altar for them to worship him. The relationship between men and God appeared to be good until the first temple of Jerusalem was built by Solomon. By then Israel was already split into two political and religious factions. At the south, the two tribes of Judah appeared to be still faithful to the God Tsin but we could not say that the same devotion stayed among the northern Israelite tribes. Despite all God's precaution during the first foundation of Ishrael, the habit of the Israelites did not change. In their drive, they were more occupied to build their wealth and in the process lost all sight of their God. Along with their successful drive in exploiting the material world, they also embraced a broader range of religious practices that was obviously not in God's original plan (The early civilization: Introduction). In the course of their bad habit, they knew deep down that they were driven by sins and there were always fears of God's retaliation. Still they presented themselves in their religious records as a devoted son to the beloved father and shifted all the blame to Satan for any miscommunication with him. When God was enough and decided to drive them out of Jerusalem, they were completely lost in their own agenda. Even then, they were not ready to take on responsibility and still shifted the blame to others. After the attack of Babylon on Jerusalem, the first temple was destroyed. When that happened, the Israelites blamed on Babylon for its destruction. On the other hand, God himself had made it clear that it was all along God's doing (Notes: The first Destruction of Jerusalem). While the Bible has accounts of Judean eminent figures were brought to Babylon, there was no mention about the fate of the people of the northern Israel country. Due to the lack of information, scholars had speculated many theories on how the Israelites, later known as the Jews, were treated under the Babylonian attack. From being sold as slaves to the lost of their homeland, scholars made the Israelite Jews to be the victims of God' s tough resolution against them. There are however indications that their fate was not the same as postulated. The formation of Rome soon after the fall of Israel gave us clue where most of them were heading to. While the poor folks were left to their own destiny and might suffered the bad treatment, evidences show that the aristocratic Israelites had already moved along with their wealth to find safe havens in Europe. Among the prospectus European countries that were open to the Jew refugees, Italy was well known of their fertile land that constituted a stable ground for the next development of the Latin Culture. Too good to be ignored by the early agriculturist of Middle Eastern origin, the Italian Peninsular was part of the early phase of European development. Along with the booming of the sea-trade, it is hard to imagine that Italy was then off limit to the Middle Eastern drive for expansion. Based on the fact that Rome was becoming the next epicenter of the new Ta-tsin, we conclude that the rise of Rome was not by accidence. After the fall of Israel, we shall argue that Rome had offered the migrant Jews full security and the opportunities to build their wealth.
The Roman Empire *
Being close to Jerusalem, Italy's strong connection with Israel was not a mystery. The concentration of the Jew communities that stayed until today confirms that Italy was actually one of the destination of Jew migrants after the fall of Israel. Rome became the main destination of the Israelite refugees who brought the latest of their know-how to spread on the western continent of Europe. Through their perseverance, the Jews were particularly successful of their business endeavors. With higher income, they brought themselves higher standard of living and in the process brought-up the image of Rome as a whole to become the most wealthy community of Europe, if not of the world during the time. Back in Mesopotamia, many imminent members of the Judean tribesmen who were sequestered in Babylon were released to go back home. They were known to be from the Judean part of Israel that was more or less home of the descendants of Abraham. The account of their journeys in the court of King Nebuchadnezzar at Babylon confirms that, unlike their Israelites compatriots, were still faithful to the Moon God Tsin. In the next part of the Ezekiel's account, God hinted that he would gather back the Judean Jews to Jerusalem. It was not for their sake, God added, but it was for God's next plan. After the attack of the Elamese on the Babylon, the Judean captives were allowed to head back home. Joined later by displaced Israelite Jews from other parts of Europe, they rebuilt Israel and the second temple to serve as a new God's residence. The setback was when the not so devout Jews also joined in the next phase of the new Israel's history. As we had argued, most Israelite Jews had already changed their faith accordingly to the mainstream of Middle Eastern development. Other were confused even though they were still faithful to their old God. Referred him still as the God of Abraham, the identity of the God Yahweh was often been mixed up with that of the God Ashura (of the new Zoroastrianist faith). It is expected that more Italian Jews were also heading back to take control of the new Israel. Under increasing Assyrian influence, they were also welcome back by the Assyrian Rulership and were set to become the new power elite of Israel. Coming along with them were the Roman rulers who, with all their military might, took control of the country as part of Roamn Empire. To sustain their faith, the last Judean' s society had to go underground. Through their campaign against the Israelite priests, they became the next subject of persecution by both the Israelites and the Romans alike. Among the leaders of the resistance was a religious figure from Judea known to the Christian world as Jesus Christ. Christians believed that he was the only son of God and was sent to restore his father's Kingdom. His mission was nevertheless dangerous since, in the mid of the Kala Yuga, Satan had already joined the Devil to fight against God's will. In the challenge against the old Israelite establishment of Jerusalem, Jesus lost his battle and his life in the effort to convert back the Israelite Jews. With the support of the latter, the Roman authorities arrested and sentenced him to death by cruscification. Under Roman harsh treatment, other Jews of real God' s devotion left Israel to avoid persecution. The discovery of the Death Sea Scrolls might reveal one of their last hiding places in the eastern part of the country before their final dispersion to the east. Others were heading west and were joined later by the Christian Jews who managed, at the end, to instill their new faith into the Roman court of the Emperor Constantine.

- Enuma Elish
The Enuma Elish is the Mesopotamia story of creation, which predates the Old Testament story of the creation in Genesis and was discovered in the library of Ashurabanipal located in Nineveh (DSS:Enuma Alish). The fact that it was kept in the heart of the Assyrian Empire reveals to us that it had its source from Paganism of the Ashura School of belief.
- The Golden Bull
In the Hindu folklore the Bull is the representation of the agricultural stock of the Man Race. Originated from the primordial king Samanta, the Bull Nanda became the carrier of Lord Siva. It is said that not all the Bulls joined the court of Meru and some had chosen to stay behind to work on their own initiative. They were actually Brahmans of Rashu Clan who were more focusing on the Red (Kala) Power to launch the discipline of the Rashu Cult. When Gilgamesh and Innana came to look for their own carrier, they found in these Sun worshipping Bulls crucial support against the old Meru's establishment. Often confused with Satan, they became later the progenator of Zoroastranism. To the Judean schools that were still faithful to Meru, they were referred as Devil.
- The Sumerian knowledge base of Life
The Cambodian uses the Sanskrit word "Dharma-jAte" meaning the Law of Life as the translastion of the western word "nature". In contrast to Natural Science, the Sumerian knowledge base of Life is more emphasized on the abstract concept of the cosmoslogy instead of the cosmos itself.
- The Connecting Path
Equivalent to the Wormholes in scientific terminology, the connecting path is the shortest connection or fastest way between two planes. In Buddhist cosmology, only the Meru world that contains all seven energies combined, has all direct connecting paths with each one of the seven planes and Nirvana.
- The Tower of Babel
It is believed that the Babylonians built the tower of Babel to challenge God' s power. It is said also that it was the tallest of anything built at the time. Any monument of such description must be hard to miss. However, archeology so far could not find such building in Mesopotamia that was believed to be the homeland of the Babylonians. It also said that God then inflicted on the tower's builders different languages so that they could not communicate between themselves. The only tallest buildings so far found in Middle East were the Pyramids and they were built not in Mesopotamia but in Egypt. After Ku-fu broke himself out from the Meru lineage, Babylon that was meant to be the gate of Gods (the Middle Kingdom) was then moved to Egypt. By the time, the emergence of the Semitic language had already been noticed in the Sumerian clay tablets found in Mesopotamia. It was the start-up of the next series of events as mentioned to be the split of languages around the world, believed to be inflicted by God.
- Satan vs Devil
It important to note that Satan and the Devil were two different entities. Due to his Ashura' s connection, the Devil was often depicted as a demonic bull with wings. It represented a group of Eastern Bramhans belonging to the Bull clan that refused to join in the Meru Development. On the other hand, Satan was a high-ranking member of God who was ousted from heaven by refusing to bow before Adam. He was often portrayed as a handsome bull also with wings.
- The first destruction of Jerusalem
The Bible clearly indicates that it was God who instructed Nebuchadnezzar to invade Jerusalem and went to the great length to recompense the Babylonian army for the hard service that they rendered to him.
- The Three Divinities or Trinity *
One important attribute of a living god or a Man is his mission to accomplish according to the supreme God's plan. To complete the mission, a living god can be born in many occasions to accomplish the task. While Buddha Gautama attained Nirvana in a single lifetime, he had spent many past lives as Buddhisatva to accomplish it. The next mission was to establish his religion. Only a Man can create a religion or establish a culture of his own name. As the spiritual ruler of the natural world, a Man and his culture have a time span limited of one Yuga. Three living gods who had already established their missions in our time to be part of the ruling Trinity were Brahma, Siva and Buddha (Gautama). They worked as team to accomplish the overall God's plan. Brahma is a living god in the mission to create a new generation of humanity to suit the next drive for salvation. Siva makes the cut to make sure that humanity goes along with God' s plan. In his mission, he would destroy bad practices and create new branches of humanity to fit the plan. Buddha 's role is on the other hand, the final salvation to bring souls back to the eternity. In conformance to the concept of Trinity, they work in synch to complete the plan.
