I have spent hours and hours reading.
My brain is sleepy. I have been trying
to learn cuneiform. I have been reading
different old books I am finding at the
apartment of a friend where I am staying.
Using the web and his dictionaries to try
to translate and find more information.
Making little trees and flow-charts of the
different versions of different stories.
Making notes of names, taking notes about
each name... Inanna, Baal, Asherah, Set,
Asherat, Ashteroth, Ishkur, Enlil, Enki,
Hadad, Elat, Ea, Jehovah, Marduk, An, Anu,
Alalu, Ninkhursag, Ereshkigal, Dumuzi,
Ninlil, Nannar, Gibil, Nergal, Sin, Utu,
Tiamat, Ishtar, Oannes, Isis, Ra, El,
Irarum, Asahk, Akhab, Gudia, Nimrod,
Abraham, Issac, Jacob, Judah, Cain,
mostly just trying to stay awake...
that should keep me awake for a bit.
