Garden-Depressions
Eastward in Eden

Daniel may have read or heard about these, searched and examined telling evidences, and figured, "a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces ... and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth." (DAN2:34-35 excerpted)

AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL DISCOVERY IN THE MIDDLE EAST:

Throughout, project 'lambhorn' has astronomic, linguistic, mathematic, systematic (ALMS Program) proofs and exegetic derivations of Scripture: Here´n is a telling derived from recent orbiting satellite (outer-space) photo-imagings of Earth.

PREVIEWING:

A processed, satellite photo-image of circa northern Arabia, April 3, 1998, about 3 PM [12 GMT] or later afternoon, [REF links below] where the angle of incident sun-light low from the west nudging north enhanced detectable estimations of gradual and shallow land depressions by one or more parametric techniques, including longer shadows, dust and sand blowings, ground mists, snows - the region 27-33N (deg. north) latitude 44-54E (deg. east) longitude nominally enveloping the Biblically depicted "garden eastward in Eden" (GEN2:8), being still cold enough in that late Winter early Spring to sometimes leave snow on desert and low elevations: (The word, garden, means land surrounded by walls: here a "sunken" garden):

The below listed large-scale depressioning features isolately and separately following similar narrow bearings over hundreds of miles are probably shallow angled incidents of gigantic meteorite impact strikes, consisting possibly of three co´ntercepted splashes [partially cloud-covered here] onto the eastern Arabian subcontinent, bearing toward the north end of the Persian Gulf, and three associated long swaths, clusters of gouged furrow-streaks west of, crossing over to the east of, the rivers, marsh, and gulf, plus a final atterrissage of central remnants in the mountain range beyond: The splashes are triangular to about 20-30 miles wide 50-100 miles long; The sparser swaths 30-60 miles wide are clusters of narrow individual furrows 3-5 miles wide, ranging majorly 5-30 miles long - probably exhibiting plowing and rolling. The distributed impact bearings are fairly uniform about 15-20 deg E-NE, with two notable mild exceptions hill-crossing (bearing redirections) exhibited further down-path against the slopes of the former Euphrates-Hiddekel (Tigris) river valley and Persian range mountains.

    The clusters in said images are broadly and majorly, approximately:
  1. [northern] 31.5N 45.5E (about 8 major) to 32.2N 48.8E (with minor further)
  2. [median] 29.7N 45.4E (obscured splash) to 30.0N 46.1E (and minor further) [to]
  3. [median] 30.2N 46.5E (about 10 major) to 30.5N 48.0E (and subdued further) [to]
  4. [median] 31.8N 51.0E (about 8 major) to 31.8N 52.5E (ended in this photo-image)
  5. [southern] 28.0N 47.0E (about 2x10 midi) to 48.5E (with minor skipping)
  6. [south-eastern] skimming the gulf and roughing up the far mountain slopes

The sharp shadow terminators in the photo-images, northwest of each pale gray clouding streak, delineate depressions, the shadows of solid edges, enhanced by dilute but tall clouding directly above. The broad obscuring smear preceding the west median splash may be just a tenuous gray cloud, but may also indicate ground waves beneath. The subdued central strikes crossing the marsh may have been major strikes subsequently covered by flooding silt (as in Noah's era). [There is similar depression-shadowing exhibited much farther north, 40-41N 48-49E just west of the Caspian Sea in these photo-images - probably mesa canyons, ridges, valleys, rolling hills, gullies.]

The alternative explanations to the gray appearance within these depressions, are: spontaneous misting, airborne sand and dust, light snow, heavy dew, consistent with the here-proposed theory for clustered meteorite impact strikes. Pale gray rather than white (most other clouds in this photo image are stark white), indicates dilute clouding, while at the same time the strong shadowing beneath, indicates tall, overall opaque, clouding. Best deducted is the prompt misting at high humidity in a laminar air flow blowing passed a ledge (lip) to a widening: "there went up a mist [fog] from the earth, and watered the whole face [intaglio] of the ground [crater]" (GEN2:6), extending very high by laminar turbulence pumping over long ("low frequency") ground waves. Second bests include the early spring warming of cooler more-shadowed depths, and impact-crazed porous under-rock reaching the water-table and drawing up moisture: and enhancing desert plant growth and cool late afternoon misting. It'd approach the comical if archaeologists find remains of Adam's famed garden buried in the bottom of one of these shallow-walled [guarden] craters on the eastward steppe rubble-razed long ago by the meteor impact,- along with seeds of "every plant of the field before it was in the [freshly razed] Earth" (GEN2:5).

It is also considerably possible that the satellite photo-imaging picks-up other photo-spectral components we do not ordinarily nor otherwise see, as might exist in decomposite soils mixed deep in impact craters: chemical remnants (washed of millennia), glasses, ceramics, glazed sands, mica dust, changing the photo-albedo and reflectance angles, permeabilities and thermal responses of soils, gloaming like the dark side of rainbows.

The very long fragment-strikes blasted deepest on the west-ends (entries), typically impact-gouging as long as 30 miles before dissipating, clustered in their essentially parallel but widely separated zones extending as far as 200 miles long, impute a very shallow angle atmospheric entry, almost unslowed suborbital descent to atterrissage, and fairly high spread stacking until the first impacts: A gigantic object sundered at very high altitude, and sustaining hyper-velocity bow-shock mollified disintegration and broadside reorientation and gradual chunk-wise separation: An aggregate conveyance of many giga-tonnes in miles-sized pieces exhibiting but gradual superficial and structural breakdown on and after incidence (no significant skip-bouncing) - suggesting crushable hollow or foam structure, ablation-cooled, or composition like glass-fiber or carbon-re´nforced: Potentially a gigantic space-city-ship fractured in low Earth orbit - originally ten miles long, five miles diameter, comprised of mile-sized compartments clustered in four subsections.

EXAMINATION OF A SATELLITE PHOTO-IMAGE: [4/3/1998]

At the north end of the Persian Gulf, there are to its north-north-west, the rivers, Tigris, being quite certainly originally the Hiddekel, and the Euphrates; To the west of the present-day north-end, are the nearly dry traces of the Wadi Batin, likely originally the Pison (Pishon), crossing the Arabian subcontinent (and under sand dunes) toward the Hejez range; And less obviously to the east, the dry Rud-Khaneh-ye river bed of the Karun river, likely originally the Gihon, draining from the mountains.

The gouge marks in two long swaths 100 miles apart 30-60 miles wide 200-400 miles long running E-NE slightly north of the Wadi Batin, are not river remnants, as these are too straight, discontiguous, disaligned: Nor are these slightly skewing wind-blown oil refinery burn-offs broad-casting gray shadows: These have more the old appearance of huge meteorite impacts streaking and splattering across the landscape, skip-bouncing and rolling up against the mountain range; and more yet (as a third group) having aloofed atop, including one item having the largest cohesive or heaviest original size-density amid a 60-90 mile diameter ring, and a close group of 4 equally heavy that crushed, unwound, or exploded on impact, leaving no long streaks. Plus, there is a fourth leaving a smattering of streaks and splatters with similar arrival velocity distributions and alignments near-equally further south 150 miles away, having thence skipped and swerved across the gulf waters, and roughed up the far shore along a derived bearing nearly the same.

It appears, there was long ago an anomalously colossal meteoric (fireball-like) object fragmented in four main clumps about as it entered the atmosphere (estimably) over southern West Africa, and subsequently as four clusters of hundreds of pieces (dozens large) of similarly durable composition, traveling together, collapsing with broadly similar bearing, and great height, across the eastern end of the Fertile Crescent, and into and atop the near mountain range slopes. [Some remnants steering notably cross-hill]

The rest of the Arabian subcontinent is comparatively unimpinged in these same photo-images: And, this meteorite atterrissage runs over eastward Eden (the Arabian steppe) - much better than neat co´ncidence: Adam and Eve began their Earth-experience with Jehovah there.

GENETIC EVENT THEORIES TO FURTHER DISCOVER THERE:

  1. Whether this meteor atterrissage greatly antedated Adam and Eve - leading to the potential that that particular meteorite (asteroid, comet) contained certain eons-slow catalysts conducive to the development of an intelligent human species (which might augment the African-Lucy and artefact-spark plug-theories) - but one example, eons later: it does not explain the longevity of the Adam lineage.
  2. If this meteorite were of dinosaurial epoch it might have accelerated the development of intelligent dinosaurs first, evolving humans eons later: and possibly antedated other humans first. [And, similar meteoritic events may have rained across the whole globe]
  3. Whether this meteorite is more recent in human pre-history, contemporarily antedating Adam by months, years, or decades: It is highly practicable that Jehovah, arriving from outerspace with Adam, selected the site for its obvious astronomical features and high-story potentials, as well as for its utility in gathering rainwater and being deeper nearer the ground water table in a more desert region farther from local travelers who might interrupt children growing up: Jehovah might have avoided the marshes extending north of the Persian Gulf, which would have better served later in Adam's post-kindergarden development.
  4. If this meteor atterrissage were immediate circa Jehovah and Adam, then there's a bigger story: why they, Adam and Lord Mrs. Jehovah (we don't title her, Lordess) pregnant with Eve, landed in a miles-big meteorite, a colossal space-vessel, unaccompanied by their fellow space-travelers and their space-cargo which may have crashed in it: Jehovah may have deliberately escaped moments earlier by shuttle.
  5. Whether Noah's record of the fountains of the great deep breaking up on the same first day of rain, confirms that the substrata had indeed been crazed by meteoritic impact: numerous narrow fissures capable of moving water but not holding a lot, gushing up in Noah's rain-flood deluge,- and that occasioned probably by a meteorological diversion of monsoon rains spanning the [GEN7] cited 40 days. Noah may have lived in or adjacent to one of the depressions: a grove, to build his ark; a deep lake, to launch, before flood plain currents moved it.
  6. If a Noah-deluge occurred there but once in history, it probably corresponded to a significant change in Earth's climate: probably-not volcano-induced as occur almost frequently, but possibly an asteroidal impact in an ocean, or vast undersea vulcanism as near the mid Atlantic ridge.

The dating on Adam and Eve is fairly certainly early 4th millennium BC (BCE):- 'lambhorn' shows evidence of 3670 BC (BCE) ratiocinating back DANIEL's stellar clock-work;- some Bible scholars have (previously) estimated 4004 BC (3999 BJ-C) by simple geneological dating - the Jewish (Hebrew) calendar puts it more precisely 3761 BCE (BC), very near 'lambhorn's estimate ... whence Noah's flood was ca 21st century BCE.

WHAT THE DEEP-SPACE "METEOR" LOOKED LIKE AND CONTENTED:

  1. Three fairly equally massive pod sections paralleling close, rolling [spinning] on the main directional axis for stability and artificial gravity (maybe missing a fourth pod landing coincident or veering far north or south, or escaping a while to impact beyond the photo-image margin)
  2. Each pod nominally 10 cubic miles, 1 mile wide, tapered to the front, 10 miles long, 8-10 compartments and interconnecting pylons
  3. A compact fourth section, miles ahead: a million-year atomic fission or fusion nuclear-powerplant for light and heat (and space-engine)
  4. Possibly, nuclear-fission-detonation-powered ablation boosters blasting from the rear of each pod at launch
  5. All behind 20-mile diameter, quad, 8-corner tepees: a cosmic-sail-shield space-ram-pavis rotating independently, controlled open by guy wires from 4 spool winders, as advanced technology thin whipple-shields for vaporizing small impingent space debris to less-damaging plasma
  6. The possible shape might be:
    1. A "wye-figure" of 3 needle-pods parallel around a long space-engine-propellant thruster tube at figure-center [a face-centered triangle] (such as a multistage linear ion plasma accelerator, MHD-thruster, or higher-technology speed-of-light ion impulsor)
    2. Or a strapped "delta-figure" of 3 parallel needle-pods close-strutted, possibly harboring a spacecraft at center
    3. following in the wake-shadow of the massive space-ram, hardware-and-staples spares-and-supplies stores, atomic power unit
  7. (There is also scattered evidence that the pods may have been dual-pods themselves, eg. six circling a core)
  8. The space-ram, as such behind the pavis, would be compartmentally compactable, ie. segmentably hollow
  9. The initial destruction or its atmospheric entry separated the 3 main cargo pods to divergent courses landing ultimately 100-150 miles apart:
  10. Atmospheric entry crumbled the pods into major sub-sections, a mile cubed each;- Impact shattered and reduced them
  11. The harder space-ram block better survived atmospheric entry, remaining a more singular piece and impacting amid its pavis tines and end-tips 400 miles further;- The pavis may have also acted as a sail carrying it further; (It is also likely that each pod had its own space-ram-tip)
  12. The "meteorite impact" pattern does not impute a specifically controlled landing: In fact recent evidence indicates largescale tumbling
  13. There are likely no pod pieces remaining if these were carbon-based shells burning away; but the space-ram might remain intact, buried

The engine detonated or reverse-thrusted approaching LEO (low Earth orbit), and the pavis used as a fore-drogue, chute-deceleration in the outer atmosphere, for perigee reduction, yields the observed "meteorite impact" cluster pattern:-- At atmospheric entry the pods began gaining angle up exposing the pods broadside for better break-up and separation and resulting in further dispersal at the final shallow impact angle: and consistent with the gyroscopic stability of axial rotation at Earth approach and orbit entry, --suggesting:-- The space-city-ship arrived at Earth over the west Atlantic, rolling with artificial internal gravity around its axis, space-ram-pavis fore-drogue forward as for long term space travel and atmospheric arrival, then immediately deorbited within a half orbit: Suggestably 10 miles end-to-end (nuclear engine leading by tower some additional miles) spread over 400 miles, the angle of impact was about 1.5 degrees, imputing shallow entry begun at the known standard 80 mile altitude.

[Forensic notes: Deorbit taking half an orbit, 45 minutes, landing 150 miles apart, 3 miles/minute lateral, spinning 180 miles/hour over 1-mile radius is 0.4 gee artificial; Lower artificial gravity is most likely for interstellar travel; The landing pattern exhibits the same spreading angle]

FOLLOW-UPS NEAR, FAR, AND ELSEWHERE:

The Scriptural record depicts Jehovah's select garden as watered from the river Pison (Wadi Batin) flowing out [eastward] from Eden, nearing where it flows together with the other three rivers: "And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold" (GEN2:10-11) - the gold in the citation may be from mines operated mid-Arabia, since before Moses. The alignment of the Pison river stretching across Arabia, from the Hejez Range, with today's Wadi Batin, was rediscovered contemporarily by researchers of NASA satellite photography. Adam's kindergarden is therefor about 40 miles W-NW of today's Bubiyan, near the north bend of today's Wadi Batin,- probably one of the smaller depressions eastward in Eden.

In the (above-noted) similar depression-shadowing exhibited directly 500-600 miles northward, midlatitude west, inland of the Caspian Sea, near the other ends of the Euphrates and Tigris (Hiddekel) rivers, a cluster of strikes generally similar bearing about 40 degrees (NE), scattering among the mountain ridge canyons, may be related to the four already discoursed here´n: Possibly more reprisals in deliberately similar space-city downings; Possibly a fourth pod deflected further astray during the long course of hypersonic entry into the atmosphere, gradually gaining greater separation distance and cross-velocity - an explosion, to have imparted such cross-velocity, would have shattered the pod, further scattering the cluster: The angles trace back to similar divergence, also over mid-west Egypt, consistent with the entry profile of the other clusters. [Other photo-images also contain angled fragment evidences potentially corroborative with this scenario delineation.]

There is the requirement for a source of this meteorite, especially that it may have brought Jehovah, and uniquely spawned Adam, and that it had some special character of human genesis, and that it was some while in low Earth orbit: This meteorite may have originated from the disasteroids' planet, or from beyond the open solar system, and thence resituated to Earth-space.

There remains what may be found of this meteorite; probably its carbon-based structural and shell components disintegrated or burned away in the original impact crash, leaving only the specialized heavy metal parts also burned away; and shattered ceramics scattered like broken stones; or all long since carted away, sold by early traders with amusing tales of places disguised and told only much later. There may be heavy components yet undiscovered atop the remoted mountain range covered in snow much of the year; and a few outboard items (eg. antennae) that snapped clean in the supersonic skip across the Persian Gulf, and sank, buried deep in sedimentary muck abottom.

And there is the purpose and method of such a visit, if it did bring humans: The size of the space-city-ship as-such suggests that its plan, arrival, demise, and purpose, was successful in fact; that it was to bring a large primary cargo to deposit on Earth, a specially prepared chrysalis form of mankind, a thousand million souls, as beings [having] adapted to low-gee outer-space living (cf 4 mph top speed in dreams): specifically for seeding (or sporing) the Earth-planet, --as their only way down (thusly detailing Rev. Eddy's subjective "Adam And Fallen Man"; and refreshing that Bible phrase, "I have gotten a man from the LORD").

And there is potential for additional such visits (See Interpretive commentary).

CORROBORATIVE SATELLITE PHOTO-IMAGES: [2003-2006]

Additional satellite photo-images from the same space platform exhibit similar patterns large-scale and small, in the same region and extending along the same angle of atterrissage: In the 3/21/2003 example, the prelude to the midlatitude swath is distinct, westward in the desert, and the early northern swath can be detected as a few gray streaks amid ordinary white clouds--thus contrasting this type of clouding distinctly due long ground waves. There are also several early streaks halfway between northern and midlatitude swaths, also grays amid whites, not detected as clouds in the primary research image, but upon reexamination as corresponding ground pocking. The 3/27/2003 example has a large gray cloud in correspondence (skewed slightly in the wind), and in high resolution, directly visible ground impressions at the precise places and angles, after a desert sandstorm. The map examples are higher resolution of where the median path "became" [be came to] the mountain,- possibly what Daniel saw and interpreted.

CORROBORATIVE ARCHAIC TEXTS: [2006-2007]

A corroboration arises in the Gilgamesh fable in which is described his 12-'double-hour' journey eastward through a narrow dark gap in the Persian range east mountain to reach plateau elevation in cold "north wind" (cf warm wind from the south), purportedly the same path taken by Shamash the contemporary sun-god each night east: not in topside daylight but inside, a religious-challenge hike through a 'valley of the shadow of death' .... This may be where the mile-high mountain was cracked by impact of the mile-diameter space-city-ship probably the southern group where skipping across the Persian Gulf least-slowed the ship mass,-- the fracture, a rift wide enough for a man to pass, and tortuous enough to be absolutely, dark, Shamash privileged to take a torch or knew the path fast in its dark ... to reach the gods' Dilmun lake-island resort where Utnapishtim (Ziusudra) resided since the flood: The Gilgamesh epic is fairly ordinary, -as a quest for immortality,- describing the crack-entry below the mountain as gated, guarded, owned by the gods; and there are indeed lakes, the largest a drying sea and its island 150 miles due east.... And... the Egyptians had their own, break, in their mountains west of Abdju Abydos, which senior gods took in their sunset,- in their parallel gods family story; and which may have become their symbolic inspiration in constructing their later pyramids with a long tall narrow chamber leading up to their pharoah's sarcophagus.

INTERPRETIVE PROPHETIC COMMENTARY: [2004]

It is also possible that the above-depicted atterrissage specially inspired Daniel's book, as a simple diagram of translatory historicity,- points of reason and inflection: He'd indicated that he understood the process of Jeremiah's prophecy; that he was skilled in the reductive and deductive arts (wisdom and cunning); and we've already seen that prophets ever drew story-inspiration from astronomical events: -this one, the instigative Earth-touched meteoritic event, amounting to clusterings of dashing major impacts, of roughly similar size each, in quantity about equally distributed afore and abaft crossing the river flowing central, constant and level in Daniel's fulcrum-of-time perception (vision of the man standing in his lot amidst the river, with other men, one on each side). Redactably, each impact-gouge was great, -yet few connected: more were they strewn about the central line (two or three lines, we have seen),-- yet they did have a common cause and source and heritage: as pieces of the same space-city-ship --much as the cause and source and heritage of the Adam lineage and history was not a chain of kings,- and rarely connected individuals, but collectively.- What Daniel found laid across the landscape, became story laid across a timescape: stretching from the earliest impacts west, to the latest impacts east, and up the mountain rise, the definitive stop to low-lying, disinclined human progress: the natural rise of physical evidences ending the level much-running to and fro of millennia, with an abrupt rise of kings crashing against the mountain face (the steep exponential climb of science: in our final era); and knowledge greatly increased (the view from the heights); and, the type of the final Earth-battle, Armageddon (St. John's Revelation: har, mound, +Megiddo, but here identifies Daniel's Persian Range), when the majority of the remnants crash in the foothills (physical sciences, drugs, wars, suicides, statistical cross-correlations; unscientific comprehension), and a few pieces impact, piled higher, deeper, surmounting that physical knowledge; and a few landing atop, with the astronautical powers and shrouds of the erstwhile Jehovahns,... and again we see Daniel's motif, even: count, count, the two portions on the plain, weigh the climb, and divide the bunch at the top ... that is, in Daniel's points of prophetic proportionings.

As Daniel found and figured this much, he may have also found a tree stump banded with iron-and-brass by those called, the Watchers: Items for research in the Mid East.

[We must note here in closing that the plausible actual would become speculative if we merely imagine what persons may have done, said, meant ... the importance is in the demonstration of the Christ Science: not to rediscover that which is today abundant, but discern and live it]
