The Chaining of Saturn/Sol « Author Elva Thompson In the beginning was the Golden Age, when men of their own accord, without threat of punishment, without laws, maintained good faith and did what was right….The earth itself, without compulsion, untouched by the hoe, unfurrowed by any share, produced all things spontaneously….it was a season of everlasting spring.

THE AGES OF URAS - Page AG3 First Inhabitants As we have seen, when the Ušumgal and their Anunna, Mušgir, and Mìmínu (see Races) came sweeping down to the Earth, it was not as though there was no one to greet them. Our planet already had a history and had its occupants. As a matter of fact, Uraš (Earth) had been colonized for a very long time before that awful moment. The Namlú'u had been created here, and under their guidance the Kingú and the Ama'argi Amašutum had been developing a number of primates who were by that time well established (Project Kingú). Mamitu-Nammu and the Ama'argi had been very actively developing a variety of life forms here ("Project Elohim"). The Two Ádamic Lines graphic farther down this page begins at a point in time 200,000 years prior to the arrival, and provides at least a glimpse of the two aforementioned "projects".
