mmmWhile researching the topic of human Immortals, I discovered the Eight Immortal Kings of Sumeria, who lived a total of 241, 200 years; yes, you read that correctly. To put this into better perspective, that is an average of 30,150 years per King. Here is the original breakdown from the stone inscription:

1-39After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years. Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira. In Bad-tibira, En-men-lu-ana ruled for 43200 years. En-men-gal-ana ruled for 28800 years. Dumuzid, the shepherd, ruled for 36000 years. 3 kings; they ruled for 108000 years. Then Bad-tibira fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Larag. In Larag, En-sipad-zid-ana ruled for 28800 years. 1 king; he ruled for 28800 years. Then Larag fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Zimbir. In Zimbir, En-men-dur-ana became king; he ruled for 21000 years. 1 king; he ruled for 21000 years. Then Zimbir fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Curuppag. In Curuppag, Ubara-Tutu became king; he ruled for 18600 years. 1 king; he ruled for 18600 years. In 5 cities 8 kings; they ruled for 241200 years. Then the flood swept over.

After reading the document, I noticed that human longevity gradually became shorter & shorter; especially after the story of the great flood. In fact, these Eight Kings closely coincide with the biblical accounts from Adam to Noah, although shorter in years; less two Kings compared to the ten biblical patriarchs. Compare the two following pictorial graphs:

Despite the differences, the most important point within the two above illustrations are the years that each of the eight Kings lived and their biblical counterparts. Here is a clearer breakdown of the Eight Immortal Kings of Sumeria, followed by a detailed graph:

  • After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug.
  • 1) In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years.
  • 2) Alaljar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years.
  • Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira.
  • 3) In Bad-tibira, En-men-lu-ana ruled for 43200 years.
  • 4-5) En-men-gal-ana ruled for 28800 years. Dumuzid, the shepherd, ruled for 36000 years. 3 kings; they ruled for 108000 years.
  • Then Bad-tibira fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Larag.
  • 6) In Larag, En-sipad-zid-ana ruled for 28800 years.
  • 1 king; he ruled for 28800 years.
  • Then Larag fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Zimbir.
  • 7) In Zimbir, En-men-dur-ana became king; he ruled for 21000 years.
  • 1 king; he ruled for 21000 years.
  • Then Zimbir fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Curuppag.
  • 8) In Curuppag, Ubara-Tutu became king; he ruled for 18600 years.
  • 1 king; he ruled for 18600 years.
  • In 5 cities 8 kings; they ruled for 241200 years.
  • Then the flood swept over.
In Eridug Alulim   28,800 years                 *
                  * Alaljar   36,000 years Eridug fell

                  * Enmengalana   28,800 years                 *
                  * Dumuzid   36,000 years Badtibira fell

5-Cities 8-KIngs 241,200 years                   *
                  *                  * Followed by the Great Flood!                   *

Contemporary thinking dismisses such stories as mythological. Nevertheless, I have discovered through the Craft that these types of stories have an element of truth to them; we call this allegory. Finding the allegorical truth within such a story is up to each person, or interpreter.

Long before researching this particular story, I have had several Masonic Immortal Brothers tell me that they intend live 30,000 and 40,000 years. At first, I was taken back by such a statement; not anymore. As I stated in my previous blog post, Does Immortality Really Exist?,  “The way I have come to understand one’s longevity is that of choice. If a person can live to 100, why does he or she have to die at all. In other words, one can live as long as he or she wants to, or believes is possible. It is a state of mind as well as body.

There is, of course, many Immortal lessons one must understand and apply to gain such a gift; some of which I will discuss on this blog and in my Facebook page. Yet,  keep in mind, even though I understand many of these lessons, I cannot share everything with the readers. Simply stated, it is a universal law that such knowledge must be earned, not given. I have been told that I can give teasers of encouragement, which I have done; but if I give too much, such knowledge will be taken from me. I know this is a fine line, but a line I intend to follow.

I have also been told that there is a hope that this generation will now accept the concept of Immortality. Our historical past is riddled with stories of Immortal humans who were forced into hiding because of bias and misunderstandings; some from church teachings, while others from their ignorance, or jealousies of the populace. Yet, we have evolved to such a point that many Immortals are slowly coming out with their lessons for humanity. Most people still don’t accept such a belief, but at least they’re now allowing such knowledge to be shared for those who seek such things – without fear of persecution. However, there are still many Immortals who harbor the fears of their past. This is completely understandable. I have heard about and read countless examples of Immortals who have had to fake their deaths in order to continue their existence. This fact is always in the mind of each person who had attained an Immortal life. Nevertheless, it is getting harder and harder to fake a death, with computer technology, etc. It can still be done, but it now forces the Immortal to leave his or her native country and language; and purge all personal history. The world is getting smaller and smaller each day; that is why there is such a huge hope that humanity is now ready for Immortals to come out of hiding.

In conclusion, the tale of the Eight Immortal Kings of Sumeria, who lived a total of 241, 200 years, or an average of 30,150 years, is a clear example of our human potential; that is, if one believes in such a potential!!!

So Mote It Be!
