Our ET genetic engineers may have left us a coded message!
on 28 November 1998
Book VI of the Earth Chronicles, "The Cosmic Code", continues Zechariah Sitchin's saga of the Nefilim and their influence on the fate of mankind. In his usual style of inciteful speculation and careful culling of evidence from ancient materials, Sitchin has added a number of new threads to the tapestry of the extraterrestrial intervention hypothesis.
If this is the first book of Sitchin's that you will read, you will find there is enough introductory and review material to bring you up to speed on the tale as told thus far. For the veteran Sitchin reader there is a wealth of new and provocative material to amaze and stimulate further investigation. Those of us who have been enthralled by the "Bible Code" research and revelations will find intelligent and useful insights into it's precursor codes in the cunieform writing system. Kabbalists will find that they too are indebted to the Annunaki for much of the wisdom and understanding contained within their field of study.
For this reader the most fascinating aspect of Sitchin's recent research embodied in "The Cosmic Code" concerns the relationship between the Hebrew alphabet and the genetic code. This is an area that I have been working in for many years. In personal correspondence with Mr. Sitchin regarding this relationship between the language of life and the language of the Torah I outlined the evidence for a deep analogy between the Hebrew letters and the amino acids of the genetic code. With his usual insight, Mr. Sitchin responded, "... Hebrew is just a form of Akkadian, and that the current Hebrew alphabet ("square letters") emanated in the Aramaic. If there is commonality, I would seek it in the earlier Sumerian phase." (personal correspondence, May 31, 1994)
Within the pages of "The Cosmic Code" Sitchin proposes that the alphabet is based on the genetic code and provides insight into how and why such a thing could be. Armed with these insights one might be stimulated to attack the idea that there are meaningful passages of text hidden away within the human genome that could shed further light on the origins of mankind and the intentions (past and future?) of the extraterrestrial genetic engineers who created us.
Thank you Mr. Sitchin.
