Life Manifestation God - Ea, Yahu
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):
- House for Nourishing the Revealer (Yahu). Emotion-owls can make scarce the nourishments. Dispersal will not life-empower the the nourishments for the Revealer.
- Shouldn't Su be authorizing the Revealer? Notice the lack of nourishments for the fertility-fluids. Yahu's (I') upper-powers shepherd the threads.
- 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.
- [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.

- Rejoice over the canals
- The pests are ejected
Starting in the left-middle and standing over the canal is winged Inanna (Ayu, Ishtar) swinging a bag likely filled with pollen (alternately it could be a pine cone also filled with pollen). Bees with their pollen carrying ability also transported life powers and so corresponded to Ayu. She is carrying arrows on her back for use by Hu.
To her right and left is her masculine complements, the rain storm god Ba'al spouting streams of water and sun god Hu holding a bow. Attacking the canal demon from Ba'al is an eagle vulture. Below Ba'al is a young unicorn storm bull who being young is not promoting stormy chaos.
Hu is shown with long curly hair. Here he is shown as a hunter with a yellow lion which represents order and the sun. This leaves the far right two-faced god to be identified as Nudimmud (Isimud, Yahu, Ea, Enki). In Sumerian culture two faces represents a translator. As a manifestation god he translates divine things into material things. This seal dates to about 2100 BCE based upon the cuneiform style.

Yahu, Ea (Yahweh)
(July 4, 2022) Yahu manifests the invisible life forms on earth when commanded to do so by the fertility fluids from higher up. This feminine complement (Utu or Asherah) then fills that form with amorphous matter to make it visible. 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 (Olmsted Jan 1 2022):I’ or Y’ or IA [Akkadian i’u, ya’u, ia’u, ia] the god Yahu (noun), revealing (adj) - 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. Letter ayin (‘) is dual use with /a/ after 850 BCE. Yahu has these linguistic equivalents: Ia, Ia’u, I’u, Ea, E’u, Ea’u, Ya’u, Yahu due to /i/ and /e/ sounds often being mixed up. The letters "Y" and "I" are dual use letters with "I" being the vowel form used only to begin and end words. Finally, the glottal stop sound of ayin is often slurred as /h/ as happens in many Akkadian words. Due to the direct replacement of “Ea” for “Enki” in Assyrian cuneiform copies of Sumerian myths we know Enki is also Ea (Yahu). Yahu later becomes 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.

Etruscan Orcus Tomb Two Image 4: Ayu and Bear Hatted Yahu Conversing with Ba’al in the Clouds 490 BCE
(Sept. 10, 2022) The next image clockwise around the room shows three deities in a cloud. They are left to right: rain storm god Ba'al, network editing goddess Ayu identified by snakes in her hair, and the life form revealing god Yahu (Revealer) having the additional power of the bear hat which symbolizes the power of stubborn defense and protection.
Translation in Akkadian (Text Med 19.3)(read right to left. Capital letters on stone. Inner vowels inferred)
- Nu AA
- Mu Edu Bu. Igu Ne Pu Ya
- Du U Ṣu
- The Revealer (Yahu) is motion-empowered
- Fertility-fluids are nourished by enlightenment, (But) the Eye (motion source god Su) does not open the Revealer.
- Life-powers are because of activity (growth processes)
Interestingly, bear power is associated with the god Yahu here because he is wearing a bear hat. Bears represent the combination of emotion sourced motion powers with life powers. They are mostly pescatarians (fish, nuts, berries, vegetables) yet they very powerful fighters when aroused. In contrast the donkey is the combination of the astrological sourced motion powers and life powers.
(Sept. 10, 2022) The last image clockwise around the room shows a dejected life network god Hu standing between Alu and Ayu. Previously these deities were misidentified as Vanth, Agamemnon, and Tiresias.

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.

(November 25, 2022) The text reads:
- For activating the fertility-fluids. For the shepherds for working with collapsing pastures 90
- -7 life-threads. For working with nourishments 70 [of something],
- For the fire-stokers 70 snake-birds (bow-drills). For render-ovens working with astrological-owls

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.
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)
- Ḫu i'u bu. D'u bu a tu (Lev Text 1.1)
- Ḫu i'u. (letters upside down so reads oppositely) Tabu redu bu (Lev Text 1.3)
- Ḫu i'u. (letters upside down so reads oppositely) Tu abu redu bu (Lev Text 1.4)
- Hu nourishes Yahu (I'u). The divine is nourishing that magic
- Hu is Yahu (I'u). Arousal is driving the nourishment
- 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.

This text also is blaming the magical motion powers for inhibiting the powers of Yahu (the Revealer).
Akkadian Text (Sinai Text 1.2):
- awu mūbû Na
- ḫamû īnu
- ku Nu mu
- nâlu bu gu
- Motion-powers are immobilizing the Revealer (Yahu)
- Paralyze the moon-eye (Su).
- Due to the Revealer's fertility-fluids
- 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.
Translation in Akkadian (Celt Text 1.1.4)(read right to left. Capital letters on object. Small letters are inferred Inner vowels)
- U E' u Nu Bu
- And Yahu (E') is revealing the nourishments
Line by Line Explanation
- 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.
- 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.
- Eagle vultures are the familiars which edit the life network by cutting off unwanted links.
- 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.
- Humans emotions are causing the misery
- The astrological motion powers are in control of human emotions right now.
- This line makes a connection between the life powers and motion powers by using the analogy of sex.
(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.

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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..
