  3. Du  U  Ṣu

In English

  1. Life-Form- Revelations are shown by these.
  2. Fertility-fluids are motivated by nourishments. (But) the Eye-of-Fate do not open the Revealer (Ayu).
  3. Manifestations (of life forms) can be due to activity.
Asiatic black bear is also called the "moon bear" and "white-chested bear" because it has a cresent shaped white patch. As such it represents the moon deity pair of the celestial light goddess Selu/Selene and the dark new moon Su.  

Yahu and the Bear Hat

(November 22, 2023) Yahu manifests and reveals life-forms when triggered by higher life powers: Alu, Hu, and Ayu. The above image illustrates this with commentary that their functions cannot be replaced by motion powers even though they can be affected by motion powers.

This god would later become the national god of Israel as Yahweh which means "power of Yahu." This is its entry from Alphabetic Akkadian Lexicon (3rd edition) which describes the word's formation (Olmsted Jan 1 2023):

IH or YH [Akkadian IH) the god Yahu - The masculine manifestation power of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm. This power reveals both objects using the life-growth-power and movement using the motion power. Yahu has these linguistic equivalents: Ia’u, I’u, E’u, Ea’u, Ya’u, Yahu due to /i/ and /e/ sounds often being mixed up, Y and I being dual use as the letter yod, and the glottal stop sound of ayin being slurred as /h/ as happens in many Akkadian words. Yahweh, the national god of Judah, by adding the noun possessed ending /e/ or /i/ to Yahu to form the meaning “power of Yahu.” That derivation goes like this: Yahu + e = Yahue = Yahwe because inner vowels not allowed in Akkadian and U/W are duals for the letter vav. This then becomes “Yahwh” or “Yahweh” because Hebrew typically does not have ending vowels for nouns and E/H are duals for the letter he.

Minoan Phaistos Disk Back Side (Side A) Second Ring and Inward Blames Network Life Power Hu 1900 BCE

(August 11, 2022) The motion powers have two sources, the motions of the heavenly bodies, and inner human emotions whose control is emotion magic. This side blames human emotion magic but one argument blames humans directly while the other blames the magical intermediary of owls.

  3. For the fire-stokers 70 snake-birds (bow-drills). For render-ovens working with astrological-owls

  4. 9 pu. Ri q ya’u 5

Line 3 lists seventy “snake birds” for the people who build and maintain the ritual fires and fires for the fat rendering ovens. The word “snake birds” seems to be an epithet for the bow drills used to start the fires. The wooden drill would be the snake while the bow would be the winds of the bird. This epithet is the likely source of the phoenix fire bird mythology.

The render ovens would have been used to make various ointments. Rituals of the motion class of powers used ointments while rituals of the life powers used waters. The base of any ointment is lard and to make that the animal fat must be melted down and the poured through a strainer to remove the hard items (cracklings). This text specifically mentions render oven products for use with astrological owls. These owls are the mechanism by which the motion powers of the heavens are transferred to earth. As such they were often portents of change when they appeared.

Akkadian Text (Sinai Text 1.2):

  1. awu mūbû Na
  2. ḫamû  īnu
  3. ku Nu mu
  4. nâlu bu gu

English Translation

  1. Motion-powers are immobilizing the Revealer (Yahu)
  2. Paralyze the moon-eye (Su).
  3. Due to the Revealer's fertility-fluids
  4. being dispersed by the nourishment's energy

 Line 1 has the magical motion powers inhibiting the life form manifestations of Yahu.

Line 2 commands the reader to instead paralyze the powers of the full moon (god Su) which is the controlling source of all astrological motion powers.

Line 3 and 4 give the reason for this command which is that the network's fertility fluid motions are being randomly dispersed by the energy of the motion powers.

Moabite Stele now in the Louvre in Paris
The remains of the Moabite Stele now in the Louvre in Paris. After a squeeze was taken of the text in preparation for purchase and western interest in it was revealed, the original stone was deliberately destroyed by the tribe which found it. The reason for this destruction is unknown. The light area is all that remains of the original stone. The dark basalt is a reconstruction based upon the squeeze.

The tribes of Israel before the Elijah drought and civil war of 840 BCE according to the Hebrew Scriptures. The tribe of Reuben became Moab after that event. Their territories actually are the same and centered around the Arnon river. Notice how the territory of Benjamin is long and narrow indicating they were invaders who crossed the Jordan river and settled in the boarder lands between Judah and Ephraim. The territory of other tribes are more square. The tribe of Benjamin most likely were refuges fleeing from Moab during the 980 BCE drought which gave rise to the Moabite stele.

Translation in Akkadian of Moabite Stele - 980 BCE

(May 24, 2023)  This text is a debate and discussion about a drought between a life priest and an emotion-magic (magick) crafter. Both tend to blame each other. According to the life-priest, the only valid motion power (magic) are the astrological powers. The life-priest is claiming that emotion generated magic is interfering with these astrological powers. These motion powers are needed to push the fertility fluids through the life network in order to trigger Yahu to manifest life forms.

The earliest historical attestation of the word "Yahweh" is found in Line 18. The word means "power of Yahu." This provides more evidence that the tribe of Benjamin which composed this stele were the ancestors of Jewish culture who were forced to cross the Jordan River around the then ruined city of Jericho because of the drought and locust invasion mentioned in the text. (The Benjaminite's then began to build a city on the ruins of Jericho.)

The drought mentioned in this text must be the drought dated to 980 BCE. The text reads:

  1. (Life-Priest Speaking) Considerations (focused magical emotions) involving fertility-fluids are blocking nourishments. The Revealer (Yahu) is being bound by activity-levels. Fertility-fluids are lacking involvement (with activity-levels).  Fertility-fluids are lacking involvement. Those fertility-fluids are being nourished by enlightenments (astrological motion powers).
  2. (Magick Crafter Speaking) The enemy is not revealed |  Life-priests lack emotion-powers.  Prodders (magic-crafters) are lacking fertility-fluids. Life-priests are fighting activity-levels.  Repel the pasture (astrological powers).  Considerations are binding the lack of involvement. 
  3. (Life-Priest Speaking) Don't craft-magic.  Attend to the eagle-vultures.  Those are not being nourished. |  When will motion-powers activate the sky-shell? Fertility-fluids are being properly-portioned. Its magic that is lacking involvement.  Enable the nourishments. Threads are annointing nothing |  Emotionally-release blockages of the fertility-fluids
  4. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Blockages are involving Yahu (YH). Blockages are being revealed. Emotion-powers are restraining the Supervisors (Ayu and eagle-vultures). Lack is involving the Revealer.  Don't weave together the gathering of considerations. Astrological-powers are not involved with the sins of Ayu:  |  the Reed-Boat's (Ayu) eagle-vultures.
  5. (Life-Priest Speaking) Are not fertility-fluids lacking involvement?  Does not life-space lack those?  When will Yahu (Ya'u) be revealed?  Fate-curses are life-cursing the life-priests.  Emotions are culling the nourishments revealing their involvement.  Pain is energized by considerations. Involving active fertility-fluids. Nourish the Controllers (Ayu and eagle-vultures)
  6. (Magick Crafter Speaking) They bring nothing | The fate-curses of Hu energize the lack. The sky-shell is revealed. Nothing is fate-cursing the Reed-boat. Falseness does not bring fertility-fluids. That is activating abandonment. That is cursing the life-priests |  Nourishments are not emotions. The Reed-boat's eagle-vultures are involved. Connect to the eagle-vultures.
  7. (Life-Priest Speaking) When Controllers (Ayu and eagle-vultures) are not brought by life-priests. When Gatekeepers (owls) are not brought by magic-crafters. When scarcity is from eagle-vultures. Lack from life-priests is from manifestations. The life-priest's divine-powers are lacking fertility-fluids. Fate-cursed are the eagle-vultures. Blockages are not making rain. Those magic-crafter-powers should be emotionally-restraining that.
  8. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Obligations (from priest rituals) are not bringing manifestations of those nourishments | Fate-curses are activating the Gatekeepers (owls). Nothing is emotionally-triggering the attention of the covering (astrological powers). Are not emotions an enemy? The Revealer (Yahu) did not bring the nested Controllers (Ayu and eagle-vultures). The Revealer's drought is activated by a fate-curse.
  9. (Life-Priest Speaking) Nourishments are being starved by the fertility-fluid's activity-level.  Nourishments are not being emotionally-empowered. | Fate-cursing of the nourishments has been revealed.  That nests magic.  Lack of pushing is from being abandoned by the motion-powers. Activity-levels are being nourished by nothing.  Nothing is celestially-healing the radiations (life giving heat, light from sun) and the life-priest's revelations
  10. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Those magic-powers are not querying (praying) for magic's revelations. | Fate-curses on activity-levels do not manifest energy. Activity-levels are gating the Controllers (Ayu and eagle-vultures). The drunkenness of Thu is setting the pushing (of the fertility-fluids). Lack of fertility-fluids is from fate-cursing nourishment's revelations. Lack of the Supervisor (Ayu) is from not being meek. 
  11. (Life-Priest Speaking) Life-Space is from Alu. The pasture (night sky's astrological powers) sets Thu. | Fate-curses are splitting-off Hu's fertility-fluids. Swarms of eagle-vultures and attendants (owls) are emanating nothing | Fate-curses are gathering the energy.  These fertility-fluids are emotionally restraining Yahu's (E'u) revealed fertility-fluids.
  12. (Magick Crafter Speaking) No one is querying (praying) for the eagle-vultures. Omens are lacking involvement with the fertility-fluids. Activate and make defiant the life-priests (who affect eagle-vultures) | Fate-curses are activating division. Dehydration is from emotion-magic. Controllers (Ayu & eagle-vultures) do the irrigated-field (life-network). Magic-crafter's emotional-attention is on activity (flow of the fertility-fluid).
  13. (Life-Priest Speaking) Hu is being nourished by the high-ones.  Energy is not revealing involvement with fertility-fluids.  Desires are querying (praying for) omens. |  Fate-curses nourish desires.  Nothing is coming from magic.  Expulsions from life-space are revealing the fate-curses. Magic changes-activity-levels with considerations (focused emotions).
  14. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Fertility-fluids are set by Hu. | Fate-Cursed is the Reed-Boat (Ayu). Eagle-Vultures are administering the bindings. Activity-levels are lacking involvement with the attendants (owls). Emanations are coming from magic. Revelations are being nourished by Yahu (E'u). Lack is making scarce the eagle-vultures of Alu: | the weavers.
  15. (Life-Priest Speaking) Nothing is weakening the constrainers (astrological powers). Lack of attention-shifting (emotion magic powers) is from that. Lack of magic-powers is from paralysis of fertility-fluids. Nothing nourishes the fertility-fluids. Envy is being shed by Hu. Eagle-vultures are pasturing the life-manifestations. Confusion is gathering-together the fertility-fluids | Fate-cursed is Hu.
  16. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Emanations (from moon and stars) bring the attention-shifting. The gathering-place's energy is getting involved with (its) deficiency. Activity-levels are nesting magic. Those vibrations are being revealed. Energy is nourishing the eagle-vultures which are abandoning judgment. |  Powers-Of-Death are seeing magic. The powers-of-death are involved.
  17. (Life-Priest Speaking) The pasture (night sky) is anointing murder. |  The prodding of astrological-powers is causing drought. Eagle-vultures are being bound by activity-levels (motion powers). Nothing is coming from Hu. Eagle-vultures are murdering nothing. |  Fate-cursed are the life-threads of Hu. Fertility-fluids are being dehydrated by anger.
  18. (Magick Crafter Speaking) Not lacking Yahweh (any powers of Yahu) is from fate-cursing the revolt. Nourishments are being controlled by the lack of energy. The Revealer (Yahu) is activated by irrigation from fertility-fluid's. | Storm-powers are lacking prodding. Life is still coming from the lord of revelations (Yahu). Nothing is coming from magic.
  19. (Life-Priest Speaking) Yahu (YH) is being roasted by a scarcity of nourishments. Nourishments are not coming from the sky-shell. Lacking is magic. The paralysis is not affected by the sky-shell. |  Fate-cursing is guiding the activity-levels. Starvation dehydrates the fertility-fluids. Energy redirects the revelations (of life-forms).
  20. Magick Crafter Speaking) Expectations are paralyzing the fertility-fluids. Life-priests should replace those fertility -fluids. Those activity-powers are being restrained. Eagle-vultures are activating nothing. |  Fate-Curses are activating those. The sky-shell is the same as Yahu (YH). Fate-Curses are not from Hu's emanations.
  21. (Life-Priest Speaking) Any lack of Su (motion powers) is from energizing the pasture (night sky with emotion magic). Any lack of Life-manifestations is from making an enemy of the Revealer (Yahu). | Considerations are involved with the nourishments. Don't prune the life-threads. Eagle-vultures of Hu are not doing anything. Hu is being murdered. Nothing of Yahu is abandoned by the eagle-vultures. Hu is being murdered.
  22. Magick Crafter Speaking) Yahu (E'u) is detached. |  Fate-Curses are stripping naked the nourishments. Don't prune the blockages. Shepherds (magic crafters) will attend to those. The Revealer (Yahu) has been involved with nourishments. The Revealer does not craft-emotion-magic. Fertility-fluids are being energized by the water-bringer (Ba'al). Emotion-magic is bringing nothing.  |  It is fate-cursed.  |
  23. (Life-Priest Speaking) The Revealer (Yahu) has been involved with nourishments. The Revealer (Yahu) has not been doing magic. The houses (zodiac) lack fertility-fluids. (Their) involvement is fate-cursing the Revealer. (Their) prodding is being activated by magic. The irrigated field (life network) is lacking Ayu. Nothing is being expelled. [rubbed out phrase]. The Revealer is being swarmed the authorities (planets).
  24. Magick Crafter Speaking) Nothing is being queried (prayed for) |  While seers (natural world diviners) are considering the swarm (locusts), the authorities (planets) are ineffective. The authorities should be queried. Hu is shifting-attention. The astrologers are lacking emotional-restraint. Yahu (E')  is being pushed away. Activity is due to lack.
  25. (Life-Priest Speaking) Those bindings (from planets) are activating the seers. Gatekeepers (owls) are foreshadowing nothing. |  Fate-Curses are stripping-naked the involvement of eagle-vultures. Don't craft-emotion-magic. The Supervisor (Ayu) is involved with eagle-vultures. Figs are lacking. Query (pray for) Hu. The sky-shell will celestially-heal the eagle-vultures.
  26. Magick Crafter Speaking) [destroyed phrase] life-space  Alu  |  Considerations (focused emotions) are getting involved with nourishments. The pruning shepherds Yahu (I'). Eagle-vultures are fate-cursed. The Revealer (Yahu) is being prodded. Activity is not being magically-generated by the Supervisor (Ayu). Selu is that arousal. Eagle-vultures are due to chaos. 
  27. (Life-Priest Speaking) Considerations (focused emotions) are getting involved with nourishments.  The Revealer (Yahu) does not craft-magic. Nourish arousal of the fertility-fluids. Magic could be prodding the gathering-place (network layer). Su (full moon god) is not doing that. |  Consideration (focused emotions) are getting involved with nourishments. The Revealer (Yahu) does not craft-magic. Nourish the Conductor (star Sirius). Involve Yahu's moon-eye (Su).
  28. Magick Crafter Speaking) [2 or 3 words missing] activity. Don't manifest the nourishments of stillness (death). Fertility-fluids are activating the Revealer. Don't be involved with the restraints which don't manifest the nourishments of the Revealer. Fertility-fluids are being activated by the pushing from magic. |  Fate-cursed is the Revealer. The Involvement of the fertility-fluids (with emotion magic) is weak.
  29. (Life-Priest Speaking) [2 words missing]. [Emotions] are aroused by that. Queries expel the Revealer. Shepherds (magic crafters) lack Su. Magic lacks Yahu (Y'). Nothing is being controlled by correspondences (emotion magic). | Fate-Cursed is the Revealer's involvement.  Nourish the pruning (of life-threads).
  30. Magick Crafter Speaking) [missing phrase]. Motion-powers are nourishing magic. The connections (of network links) are lacking replacements. | The patroller's (planet's) magic is nesting. Any-lack is from pushing away the Revealer (by life powers). Fate-Cursed is the activity-level which is expelling fertility-fluids. That magic is pouring-away the life-manifestations.

The remains of the black basalt Dan Stele.  It is now at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. Their nationalist promoting translation is completely wrong. King David is actually not mentioned in this text. 
The original stele measured 1 meter high and ½ meter wide. It was erected in the ancient city of Dan just north of the Sea of Galilee. It was later broken up and re-used in walls dating to shortly after 840 BCE. These walls themselves were destroyed by the Assyrian invasion of 733 BCE.
The stone fragments were found relative to a pavement adjacent to a city wall with the pavement dating to approximately 800 BCE (Biran and Naveh 1995). The smallest fragment (B2) was actually used as a paving stone in this pavement. This indicates that the stele had been deliberately destroyed soon after it was created during the Elijah drought of 840 BCE.  Its defense of the old Pagan order against the new Yahwist order would have resulted in its destruction by the victorious Yahwist rebels.

Israelite Dan Stele Blames Life Network Editing and Magical Motion Powers for Drought but Leaves Yahu (Yahweh) Blameless (840 BCE)

(Feb 12, 2023) This stele is presently incomplete. Only three black basalt stone fragments have been found so far. The stele was written during the Elihah drought of 840 BCE and deliberately broken up shortly after the drought. The first fragment was found in 1993 (Biran and Naveh, 1993) and the second and third were found in 1994 by an excavation team lead by Avraham Biran (Biran and Naveh, 1995). The text reads:

Translation of Dedication Plaque from Israelite Ekron Temple to Yahu (720 BCE)

(August 23, 2022) This plaque was originally set within the temple sanctuary’s western wall but it fell to the floor during the building's destruction by the Babylonians in 604 or 603 BCE. It reads (justification below):

  1. House for Nourishing the Revealer (Yahu). Emotion-owls can make scarce the nourishments. Dispersal will not life-empower the the nourishments for the Revealer.
  2. Shouldn't Su be authorizing the Revealer? Notice the lack of nourishments for the fertility-fluids. Yahu's (I') upper-powers shepherd the threads.
  3. Nourish the Revealer's energy without magic. Yahu (YH) can notice magic. The boundary (network) can nourish the eagle-vultures on account of the high-power's magic.
  4. [missing words] Controllers are making miserable the nourishments. Impatience (emotional energy) acknowledges the life-powers

The temple had its own olive oil press in room O (lower center) for making its own scented oils for rituals and probably for sale. Rooms V and W contained hundreds of gold, silver, and bronze objects along with lots of ceramics. One of these was an ivory female figurine and an ivory knob having a cartouche of Ramses VIII (1129-1126 BCE) which would have dated back to the time of the original Philistine settlement. Room q had a gold 23 cm long cobra (Egyptian Uraeus). The great hall near the entrance had the burnt remains of large man-shaped ivory sculpture. (Gitin, Dothan, Naveh, 1997)

The city of Ekron eventually covered 85 acres making it a large city. It also became one of the largest olive oil production centers in the Mediterranean.

The image is of a rope connecting the 3 life levels (Alu, Hu, Yahu) of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm of which Yahu is the end power. The lower circle seems to represent the full moon god Su.

These bronze spearheads were discovered in 1953 when all 26 were put on sale in the Jordanian antiquities market. These were bought and investigated by archaeologists with the result that most ended up in the Amman Museum in Jordan (Milik and Cross 1954). This hoard was discovered to have come from the small village of el-Khadr located two miles west of Bethlehem. Image from Milik and Cross (1954). Letter assignments by Olmsted.

El-Khadr Philistine Spearheads 1, 3, and 4 Explicitly Mentions Yahu and Describes Emotional Energy as Magic 940 BCE

(August 21, 2022) A cache of twenty-six bronze spearheads was hidden in ancient times in the land of Judah. Five of these had inscriptions with 4 of the inscriptions having Philistine lettering while the 5th had Phoenician lettering. What is unique with these spearheads is that two sentences on 3 and 4 are separated by letter orientation, that is, the spearhead is turned upside down to read the second sentence. The sentences which have magic affecting the life powers have the upside down letters.

Translation in Akkadian

(read right to left, shaft to point, upside down letters read left to right in the picture)
  1. Ḫu i'u bu. D'u bu a tu (Lev Text 1.1)

  2. Ḫu i'u. (letters upside down so reads oppositely)  Tabu redu bu (Lev Text 1.3)
  3. Ḫu i'u.  (letters upside down so reads oppositely) Tu abu redu bu (Lev Text 1.4)

In English

  1. Hu nourishes Yahu (I'u). The divine is nourishing that magic

  2. Hu is Yahu (I'u). Arousal is driving the nourishment 
  3. Hu is Yahu (I'u). The magic's fathers are driving the nourishment

The first line is the normal scheme of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm while lines 3 and 4 are different. They are claiming the powers of the connective and manifestation life powers are now the same because energetic emotions (magic's father) are pushing the fertility fluids through the network lines (channels) instead of Hu.

Line by Line Explanation

  1. Threads are the channels of the life network through which fertility fluids flow to trigger Yahu to manifest life forms. But, fertility fluids affected by negative human emotions which are not being covered  up but are instead being made manifest by the motion source god and full moon god Su. The sun god Hu represents the life network but it is not being properly formed.
  2. Thu is the hermaphrodite motion power deity for the connective layer of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm. He is the one who normally filters out negative human emotions but he is being intimidated by the source power of this motion powers which is Su.
  3. Eagle vultures are the familiars which edit the life network by cutting off unwanted links.
  4. Lack of drought depends on a working life network represented by the sun god Hu and the pushing of the fertility fluids through it by spiritual motion (wind) powers represented by the owl familiar.
  5.  Humans emotions are causing the misery 
  6.  The astrological motion powers are in control of human emotions right now.
  7. This line makes a connection between the life powers and motion powers by using the analogy of sex.

Translation of Carthage Stone Text Blames Drought on Negative and Unblocked Emotions (170 BCE)

(September 5, 2022) This text is blaming  a drought on negative and unblocked human emotions. Normally the connective hermaphrodite motion power deity, Thu, blocked most of these negative emotions before they could affect the flow of fertility fluids through the life network represented by sun god Hu. In this case Thu is being restrained by the astrological motion source powers represented by the full moon god Su.

In English

  1. The lack of threading is the howling of the astrological-powers. Yahu (IA) is being the same as the threading. Nothing is being covered-up. Su manifests the emotions. Fertility-fluids are being pastured by the eagle-vultures. Nothing is being set by them. Anarchic magic is nourishing Hu.
  2. Magic is lacking Thu. The murderer is lacking Thu and veiling the Revealer (Yahu). The nest (network) determines the fate of Yahu (I'). Veiled is the Revealer. The nest's enemy is supported by this magic. Intimidation by Su is nourishing anarchy.
  3. Life-manifesting is being made difficult for the nourishments (fertility-fluids). The Revealer (Yahu) is being intimidated by the motion-powers. Hu is being nourished by the eagle-vultures. The Revealer is scarce. Those revelations are not being pushed by Hu's fertility-fluids. The redirection of threads is being inhibited. Nourishments are clamoring for the difficult life-channels. 
  4. Nourishments are clamoring for the ignored life-channels. Nourishments nest the Revealer. Shouldn’t Hu be revealing those nourishments? The Nourishment-Revealer (Yahu) is clamoring for the difficult life-channels. A lack of scarcity depends on the wind and emotion-owls will be revealing that.
  5. The activity of Hu is being difficult for the Revealer (Yahu). The activity of the threads is being supervised and activated by the Reed-Boat (Ayu). Her magic is nested. The creation of invisible-forms is ending in life-manifestations, (but) emotions are making ineffective the life-threads. Misery is from those magical-powers.
  6. This magic is revealed by emotions. Activity and Hu are being attacked by the storm-powers. This makes anarchic the waters. The swarm (stars) is taking possession of the emotional-releasing and the astrological powers are making-scarce the openings. Those emotions open Hu.
  7. Misery is being revealed by magic. The Supervisor (Ayu) arouses Hu. Fertility-fluids are crafted by magic for that. Moon-eyes are associating with the threads. None of this is opening-up the fertility-fluids. None of this is fighting Ayu’s lack of energy. Do not the astrological-powers emotionally-empower illicit-sex..
This text was found on the island of Naxos. It is inscribed on the bottom of a funeral stele (grave marker, cippi). The language of the text is Alphabetic Akkadian (Aramaic) in the Mid-Etruscan letter style which was near the end of its reign as an empire language in the eastern Mediterranean. At this time Greek texts were starting to appear on funeral steles on the mainland showing that written Greek started out as a  personal context before graduating to official texts. Greek texts have a lot more vowels (especially E) because they decided to sound out the inner vowels. (Image online at Arachne Archive:

Naxos Funeral Stone: Magical Motion Powers Affect Life Powers (550 BCE)

This is a text prior to the drought.

Translation in Akkadian (Med Text 10)

(read left to right. Capital letters on stone. Small letters are inferred Inner vowels)
  1. Nu Ṣu Ne'u. BeŠu RaḪu BT Y  (10.1)
  2. AYu Ru E  (10.2)

In English

  1. The Revealer (Yahu) is being activated by the nest (network).  Far-ones (life powers) do not house the anointed-ones (magic powers)
  2. Ayu is not the eagle-vultures.


This is a typical thought of the Aegean subculture. Both classes of powers are co-equal and must work together. This is in contrast to the Phoenicians who thought the magical motion powers were superior and the Israelites who thought the life powers were superior. What is significant here is the statement that the cresent moon goddess Ayu who edits the middle-layer network is not the same as her editors, the eagle-vultures. This indicates that the eagle vulture were thought to be mostly under magical control.
