According to the Bible, one year after the Deluge began, Noah / Nabu returned to Earth along with the other survivors. As ancient writings always referred to divine years, we can assume that their return occurred after 360 earthly years, around the year 29,640 BC. Ancient writings also suggest that, at that time, the Watchers returned to Earth, starting The Battle of the Pyramids. At the end of this battle at Giza, Enki surrendered and Marduk was imprisoned in the Great Pyramid. However, Nabu’s testimony led to Enki being condemned and imprisoned once again in the Underworld, while Marduk was released and sent into exile. From a Sumerian text we know that Marduk was exiled for 24 years in the land of Hatti, meaning he returned around 21,000 BC. 24 divine years are equivalent to 8,640 earthly years.
Like any major war in history, the prolonged conflict of the gods ended with a peace treaty. Details are found in a text discovered by Canadian reverend and professor George Aaron Barton on a broken clay cylinder, which is the Akkadian version of a much older Sumerian text. Barton concluded that the clay cylinder was deposited by King Naram-Sin around 2300 BC, on the occasion of the reconstruction of Enlil’s temple in Nippur. Comparing the Mesopotamian text with the Egyptian texts of that period, which focused on the king, Barton noted that the Akkadian text „concerned itself with the community of the gods„. Despite the fragmentation of the text, especially at the beginning, it is clear that the major gods reunited following a great war at Harsag („High Mountain”), which can only be the Great Pyramid of Giza. Goddess Ninhursag played the role of peacemaker, although the author of the text repeatedly refers to her with the epithet „Tsir„, meaning „Snake”, suggesting that she may have been on the Watchers’ side. The introductory verses briefly describe the last moments of the war, as well as the conditions in the besieged pyramid. From the continuation of the text we learn that Ninhursag convened the peace conference in Enlil’s camp, where she was accused of aiding the „demons” (the Watchers). The goddess denied the accusations, responding: „My house is pure„. A god whose identity remains hidden (probably Ninurta) replied: „Is the House which is loftier and brightest of all also pure?„, referring to the Great Pyramid. „Of that I cannot speak; its brilliance Gibil is soldiering„, the goddess replied. After the spirits had calmed down, a symbolic forgiveness ceremony took place. Ninhursag was baptized with water from the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, symbolizing her reacceptance among the Celestial gods. Enlil touched her with his „bright scepter” and the „power of her was not overthrown„. Enki and his children were brought to Harsag, where they were awaited by Enlil and Ninurta. Announcing that she acted on behalf of „the great lord Anu (…) Anu the arbiter„, the goddess performed her own ceremony. She lit seven fires, one for each ruling god or Anunnaki: Anu, Enlil, Ninurta, Enki, Marduk, Ishtar and Ninhursag. For each fire lit, she recited an incantation: „A fiery offering to Enlil of Nippur (…) to Ninurta (…) to Enki coming from the Abzu (…) to Nergal coming from Meslam„. At sunset, all the flames were lit: „as sunlight was the great light set off by the goddess„. Then, Ninhursag appealed to the wisdom of the gods and praised the benefits of peace: „Mighty are the fruits of the wise god; the great divine river to his vegetation shall come (…) its overflowing will make like a garden of god„. She highlighted the abundance of plants and animals and the benefits of a „triple-sprouting mankind” that multiplied after the Deluge, planting, building and serving the gods, all of which were only possible through peace. After the goddess finished her plea, Enlil spoke. „Removed is the affliction from the face of the Earth” he said, clearly referring to the Deluge. „The Great Weapon is lifted up„, Enlil added, probably suggesting that the Moon was removed from the Sun’s path, thus ending the ice age. He also allowed Enki to remain on the surface: „Edin shall be a place for thy Holy House„, with enough land around to sow the fields. Hearing this, Ninurta objected. „Let it not come!” shouted the „prince of Enlil„. Ninhursag spoke again, explaining to her son that she had worked „day and night with might” to give people the opportunity to herd cattle and cultivate the land, reminding him how she had „raised the foundations, filled, raised„, then the huge flood destroyed „all, in its entirety„. „Lord of life, god of fruit, let the good beer pour in double measure! Make abundant the wool!” she asked him. Eventually, Ninurta was persuaded: „O my mother, brilliant one! Proceed; the flour I will not withhold (…) in the kingdom the garden will be restored (…) To end affliction, I earnestly pray„.
The continuation of peace negotiations can be found in the text I Sing the Song of the Mother of the Gods. The first to speak was Enki:
„Enki addressed to Enlil words of lauding:
‘O one who is foremost among the brothers.
Bull of Heaven, who the fate of Mankind holds:
In my lands, desolation is widespread;
All the dwellings are filled with sorrow
By your attacks.’„
In order to conclude peace, Enki agreed to permanently cede some territories to his rival:
„I will grant thee the ruler’s position
In the gods’ Restricted Zone;
The Radiant Place, in thy hand I will entrust!„
In turn, Enlil offered Enki Egypt: „For the formidable House Which Is Raised Like a Heap (i.e. the Great Pyramid), he appointed the prince whose brilliant wife (Ishtar) from the cohabitation with Tsir (Ninhursag) was brought forth. The strong prince who is like a fullgrown ibex – him he appointed, and commanded him to guard the Place of Life„. He then bestowed upon Enki the title Ningishzida („Lord of the Artifact of Life”). After they established their territories, the gods drew up plans for how the lands were to be occupied by humans. Enki drew a plan for establishing human settlements in Enlil’s territory, „before the feet of the adversary laid the cities that were allotted him„. Enlil agreed and responded by drawing a plan for the restoration of the antediluvian Sumerian cities, „before the feet of his adversary the land Sumer he laid out„. However, Enki had a condition: to be allowed free access to Mesopotamia and to receive back Eridu, his first city. Enlil agreed: „In my land, let your abode become everlasting; from the day that you shall come into my presence, the laden table shall exhale delicious smelis for thee„. He expressed his hope that Enki would help bring prosperity back to his territory: „Pour abundance on the land, each year increase its fortunes„. Unfortunately, Mesopotamian texts only vaguely describe this division of territories and humans, which forces us to discover the details on our own.
At that time, there was only one race of humans on Earth, the survivors of the Deluge, who formed one people and spoke one language. We know that genetically they were „pure”, having DNA much closer to that of the gods than the rest of the humanoid races destroyed by the Deluge. The descendants of Noah / Nabu, those blonde, white-skinned, blue-eyed people, like the gods, represent the first Homo sapiens sapiens. The Greeks called them „pelasgoi” („Pelasgians”) and attributed to them the epithet „dioi” („divine”) in poems, considering them people with supernatural powers, like the gods. In India and Persia they were called Aryans, being that genetically pure race which theosophists and Hitler’s Nazis spoke about.
If the first humans were white, how did the other human races appear, such as Negroid or black, Mongoloid or yellow and Indian or red? We notice that these four colors are attributed in Egyptian myths to the main gods in conflict: Ra was yellow, Seth was red, Osiris was black and Horus was white. Egyptologists claim that the ancient Egyptians knew about the four human races, with themselves being the red ones, Asians being the yellow ones, people living by the sources of the Nile being the black ones and people from the north being the white ones. Therefore, it is possible that the Egyptians assigned each of these gods to a human race. We know that the gods divided people among themselves, so it is plausible that they genetically created the other races to „mark” their subjects, making them easy to recognize. If before the Deluge the gods marked their people with their own symbols on their forehead or hand, the different colors method seems much more efficient. Thus, Enki / Osiris received the black race, Enlil / Seth the red one, Anu / Ra the yellow one and Marduk / Horus kept the first one, the white race of the Pelasgians. The Old Testament confirms this hypothesis, stating that, after the Deluge, „the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech” (Genesis 11:1). After the Tower of Babel incident, „Yahweh did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did Yahweh scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth” (Genesis 11:9). From this we understand that the Tower of Babel incident happened when Marduk tried to build a new „gate of heaven” in his father’s city, Eridu, after his return from exile, around 21,000 BC. Upon learning of his plan, Enlil destroyed the Tower, which could have sparked a new war. However, to put an end to the too-long-lasting conflict once and for all, Ninhursag convinced both sides to accept the peace treaty. The biblical quote also supports that immediately after Marduk tried to build a new „gate of heaven” in Eridu and was stopped by Enlil, the different races were born, which were scattered all over the Earth. This division was established in the peace treaty around 21,000 BC. We have seen that at that time, the gods not only divided humans between them, but also territories. The Old Testament confirms this once again: „And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan” (Genesis 10:25). We know nothing about this Peleg and no details are offered about that division of the Earth. However, his name is very similar to the word „pelasg / pelasgian„. Therefore, the biblical quote can be read as „in the days of the Pelasgians was the Earth divided”, exactly what we discovered from Mesopotamian sources.
We notice that, when human races were created, not only skin color was modified, but also hair and eye color. Originally, white people had blonde hair and blue eyes (similar to the gods), black people had black hair and eyes, red people had red hair and green eyes, and yellow people had brown hair and eyes. Over time, through interracial breeding, these characteristics no longer belonged exclusively to certain human races, but were also transmitted to others. Generally, the white race, the primordial one of the Pelasgians, can have all hair and eye colors. The others are limited, with individuals of black, yellow or red races rarely having blonde hair and green or blue eyes.
Not only hair and eye color are closely related to human races, but blood groups as well. From a common ancestor of mankind, called Noah by Jews and Nabu by Babylonians, four blood groups could not arise naturally, but only through genetic modification. Group O seems to be the oldest, and a person with this group can donate blood to all other blood groups. Therefore, it is possible that the first human race after the Deluge, that of the Pelasgians, had blood group O. Over time, through natural mixing of races and countless genetic cross-breeding made by the gods, group O no longer exclusively belonged to the Caucasian race. Today, blood group A appears most frequently in the white race, group B in the Mongoloid race and group O in the red race (present in 95% of Native Americans). Group AB exists in the smallest proportion, being present in almost 5% of the world’s population. From the researchers’ point of view, this can only mean that it is the newest blood group. However, according to logic, it is not mandatory for AB to be the newest, but it may have been reduced over time for various reasons, both natural and artificial. In addition to these four blood groups there is another blood component that can prove that human races were created by gods through genetics: Rh factor. In the red blood cells there is an antigen called D, and those who have it are Rh positive, while those without the D antigen are Rh negative. Here is the distribution of blood types on Earth:
– O – 37%
– A – 36%
– B – 9%
– AB – 3%
– O – 7%
– A – 6%
– B – 1%
– AB – 1%
This Rh negative factor is considered by researchers to be a mutation of „unknown origin„, which initially occurred in Europe and is currently present in only 15% of the world’s population. Some of the characteristics that people with Rh negative may have include: lower body temperature, an extra vertebra, lower blood pressure, increased analytical mental abilities, better vision and other senses, greater resistance to bacteria, sensitivity to heat or sunlight. Most people with Rh negative have blond or red hair, cannot be cloned and often report having many extrasensory experiences or encounters with extraterrestrials. All of these traits bring to mind the „reptilian” blood of Enki and his descendants. Human races were created through genetic modifications of Nabu’s DNA, who was a descendant of Enki (and therefore had „reptilian” blood). However, he also had children naturally, who retained his „divine” genes inherited from Enki, and their descendants are people with Rh negative. Rh positive proves the genetic manipulation of mankind, by adding the D antigen, unlike Rh negative, which was transmitted naturally.
How were human races created? With the help of an organic pigment called melanin, which is present in skin, hair and eye membranes. Melanin determines skin and hair color and gives the iris dark shades. In the Negroid race skin cells produce a lot of melanin, in the Caucasian race almost none is produced, and in the other races melanin production is intermediate. Another element that differentiates human races is the elongated Asian eye, which is different from that of other races. The shape of the Mongoloid eyes is the result of a small ligament that pulls the eyelid slightly downward. This ligament exists in all newborns, but usually disappears after about six months in the Caucasian, Negroid and Red races, remaining only in the Mongoloid one. Quite rarely do Asian eyes appear in Caucasians and just as rarely does this ligament disappear in Mongoloids, being only a result of racial genetic crossings. Therefore, creating human races does not seem like a complicated process for technologically advanced entities, experts in genetics.
During the gods’ peace treaty, was there a symbolic division of the Earth, by drawing borders on a map, or a tangible one? Geologists argue that about one billion years ago there was a single supercontinent on Earth. After 250 million years it split into three parts, which formed oceans between them. They later reunited during the Pan-African orogeny movement, which lasted approximately 60 million years, forming the supercontinent Pannotia. About 550 million years ago, Pannotia split into several fragments, the most important being Laurentia (which would form North America), Baltica (which would give rise to Northern Europe), Siberia and Gondwana (the formation source of China, India, Africa, South America and Antarctica). Over more than 200 million years, many of the smaller fragments merged to form a large continent called Laurasia. It reunited with Gondwana 200 million years ago, forming the supercontinent Pangea. Pangea broke into several continents that we know today as Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica. Geologists believe that the phenomenon of supercontinent breakup continues to this day, contributing to the expansion of the Atlantic Ocean, and a new supercontinent is expected to form at the end of the breakup process.
Is this how things really are? Do continents constantly join and separate over hundreds of millions of years due to natural causes? Geologists’ calculations remain at the stage of hypotheses since they cannot be proven. Yet there is a high chance that they are wrong because they ignore an aspect that the ancients have passed down to us for thousands of years: our planet is not a natural body formed by chance, but an artificial one created by Enlil as the body of the rebellious aeon Sophia. Therefore, if it would normally take hundreds of millions of years to form the continents that we know today from a single supercontinent, things are different for an artificial planet controlled by technologically superior entities. Ancient myths suggest that the Earth’ surface was formed from a single continent, the so-called Pangea, until the peace treaty 23 millennia ago. Plato concealed this in the story of Atlantis; an island or continent inhabited by technologically advanced people, engulfed in a great war and eventually sunk into the sea, can only be Pangea before the Deluge, the Earth’s supercontinent on which gods lived alongside demigods and humans, who started a terrible war that ended with a Deluge that flooded the entire planet. While the myths of different peoples suggest that the Deluge was due to the sudden melting of snow and ice during the warming of the mid-ice age, Plato proposes a new hypothesis, that of the sinking of the continent into water. Considering that our planet is controlled by gods who can accelerate or slow down its rotation around its axis or around the Sun, it becomes possible for the land surface to be deliberately submerged. Moreover, myths state that during the final battle between Enlil and Marduk, just before the Deluge, the whole Earth was burned by nuclear bombs launched by the two combatants. Therefore, the sinking of the land into water or the Deluge could represent a rescue action, to extinguish the destructive flames, rather than a method of destroying all living beings.
The continents’ separation after the peace treaty of the gods hypothesis is supported by the Bible, which affirms that at the time of the Pelasgians there was a division of the Earth. And it is a logical one, moreover. The gods divided then the territories and the humans. There are seven ruling gods, and likewise seven continents. If they created different races for a clear delimitation of their subjects, why would there not have been a clear delimitation of their territories? We can see that the four races inhabit different continents: the white race in Europe, the black race in Africa, the yellow race in Asia and the red race in America. This cannot be a coincidence, but only the result of territorial division; the gods divided the Earth into continents and humans into different races, each god moving its human race to its own territory.
This hypothesis also solves the problem of human migration, which researchers have not been able to explain satisfactorily. Their opinion is that humans originated in southern Africa, from where they migrated to all corners of the world during the Stone Age. We can understand migration, as people look for places with more favorable living conditions than those they left, but why would they have traveled thousands of kilometers for that? And how? How did those underdeveloped humans manage to cross seas and oceans to settle in places like America or Australia? Why did they settle in places with harsh living conditions, such as Scandinavia or Siberia? These questions have no satisfactory answers, no matter how much scientists try to convince us of the truth of their hypothesis. The only plausible option is that of the ancient chroniclers who claimed that humans were taken by gods to the territories they ruled. This is exactly what the Bible claims: after the men’s languages were mixed, „did Yahweh scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth„. In other words, humans did not migrate willingly, but were scattered by a god across the surface of the Earth. Even today, the Inuit people keep that moment in their collective memory, claiming that their ancestors were transported to the north by giant „iron birds„. What could these „iron birds” be if not the gods’ flying machines, similar to our airplanes? Moreover, in 1891, French archaeologists discovered a wooden model of an airplane in the tomb of Pa-di-Imen from Saqqara, Egypt (who lived in the 3rd century BC), and in a cemetery over 1500 years old, belonging to the pre-Columbian Tolima civilization, a dozen funeral objects similar to miniature airplanes were found. Let us not forget about the „black bird” used for flying by god Ninurta, Enlil’s son, as the Sumerians recount.
It seems that not all humans were taken by ships to the new territories of the gods, but some moved on their own. There are several ancient reports about peoples who migrated to certain areas, at the gods’ orders. The most well-known is the biblical Israelites’ exodus from Egypt to Canaan, at the command of Yahweh. A legend of the Andes mountains’ peoples tells of a giant fleet made up of rafts and reed boats; in the lead boat there was a green stone used by a god to transmit orders to the humans’ leader, Namylap, guiding him to the chosen land. The migrants arrived at Cape Santa Elena in Ecuador, where Namylap received wings to reach the god who spoke to him through the stone. Similarly, in the Bible, Yahweh spoke to the leader of the Israelites, Moses, through the Ark of the Covenant. The Popol Vuh manuscript claims that the ancestors of the Maya came „from the other side of the sea„; Bishop Landa wrote that the Maya ancestors came from the east, guided by God, who opened 12 sea routes for them. Aditionally, in the History of the Things of New Spain („Historia de las cosas de la Nueva España” in original), monk Bernardino de Sahagun noted, inspired by some original texts written in the Nahuatl language, that seven tribes left Aztlan (the home of the first patriarchal couple), heading towards Panotlan (today’s Guatemala). From there, they headed towards the Home of the Serpent’s Nest, scattering along the way. Some of them, including the Toltecs and Aztecs, arrived in Teotihuacan, the city of the gods. At some point, the tribes began to leave the sacred city. The first to leave were the Toltecs, who built their own city, Tollan. The last to leave were the Aztecs, led by Mexitli („The Chosen One”), after receiving an order to migrate from their god, Huitzilopochtli, who promised them a land where there were „houses made of gold and silver, colorful cotton, and a thousand types of cocoa„. There they were to settle and call themselves „Mexica” („The Chosen People”) because they were the chosen people, destined to rule over other tribes, just as Yahweh claimed about his people, the Jews. The Aztecs arrived in Tollan, where they were not welcomed by the Toltecs. They lived for almost two centuries on the marshy shores of the central lake until they built their own city, Tenochtitlan („The City of Tenoch”). The name of this city can be explained by the fact that the Aztecs considered themselves „tenochas” or descendants of Tenoch, none other than the Hebrew Enoch, thus confirming that he is Nabu, the ancestor of mankind after the Deluge.
How did the gods divide the continents? According to the races that populated them, whose colors were assigned by the Egyptians to the gods, we can conclude that Enki received Africa, Marduk Europe, Enlil America (keeping the southern part for himself and giving the northern part to his son, Ninurta) and Anu Asia (which he left for goddess Ninhursag to administer). Ishtar received Australia and Antarctica became a neutral territory for future treaties of the gods, covered with ice to prevent human access. The map of Orontius Finnaeus from 1531 depicts Antarctica in detail, without ice, hundreds of years before it was discovered, which proves that Antarctica was covered with ice not millions of years ago, as scientists claim, but much more recently, when humans already existed. The text I Sing the Song of the Mother of the Gods states that Enki was offered Egypt, confirming that Africa became his new territory, a fact supported by Egyptian myths in which the god Ptah arrived in that area after the Deluge and pulled the land out of the water, but also by the legends of various African tribes, in which Enki was the supreme god. For example, the god of the Masai people in East Africa was named En-kai, and the Dogons named their tribe after Enki’s epithet from Canaan, Dagon / Dagan, their supreme god being Amma, a name derived from the Egyptian Amun. In Asia we find Anu holding the position of leader of the pantheon, but his cult was not as strongly developed as those of other gods, which could be explained by his absence from that territory. In addition, it has been discovered that the primordial religion in that area was one centered around a mother goddess of the Earth, none other than Ninhursag. For example, the Indians worshiped only the Mother Goddess until the arrival of the Aryans, who imposed a complex polytheistic cult on them. The ancient Greeks claimed that Apollo lived in northern Europe, among the Hyperboreans, thus confirming that this continent belonged to Marduk. Also, the attribution of Australia to goddess Ishtar is noticeable from the shape of the continent, which strikingly resembles a feline head (one of her symbols). Moreover, looking at our planet from above, we can see that several areas of the land have different animal shapes, such as that of a horse or a snake, which cannot be a coincidence, but only an intentional representation of the forms indicating the deities to whom the respective territories belonged.
Most of the evidence for the division of the continents among the gods is found in the case of Enlil, who kept South America, giving North America to his son. The Great Temple of Tenochtitlan (Mexico) has two twin towers at the top, the northern one dedicated to Tlaloc, the god of rain, and the southern one to Huitzilopochtli, the god of war – none others than Enlil and Ninurta. In the textiles and ceramic vessels from Lurin, Pisco, Nazca, Paracas, Ancon and Ica (Peru), the central character is Rimac, a god holding a wand in one hand, a lightning bolt in the other and wearing a rayed-crown on his head. According to writer Zecharia Sitchin, the name Rimac „both semantically and phonetically resembles the name Raman, the name by which the Semitic peoples knew Adad„. And Raman and Adad were two of Enlil’s epithets. In addition, numerous legends from Central and South America support that god Viracocha (whom we have identified with Enlil) arrived to civilize the natives shortly after the Deluge. On a slope in the Paracas Gulf in Peru a lightning bolt is drawn, visible from both the air and the sea, made to announce to visitors that this was the land of the god of storms. Likewise, the legend of Votan, told by numerous Spanish chroniclers (including Bishop Nunez de la Vega and monk Ramon Ordonez y Aguiar), speaks of the arrival in the Yucatan peninsula of „the first man that God sent to this corner of the world to populate and divide the land that we know today as America„. His name was Votan and he was a „descendant of the Watchers of the race of Can. He was from a place called Chivim„. Although Nunez de la Vega was convinced that Votan came from the vicinity of Babylon, Ramon Ordonez concluded that the mysterious Chivim was the land of the Hivites, whom the Bible considers to be the sons of Canaan and cousins of the Egyptians. Unfortunately, these chroniclers did not notice that the name Votan is nearly identical to Wotan (sometimes spelled Wodan or Woden), the name attributed by Germanic tribes to their pantheon’s leader, whom the Scandinavians transformed into Odin. And Wotan / Odin was called Enlil by the Sumerians.
The division of the four major continents (Asia, America, Africa and Europe) among the four main gods (Anu, Enlil, Enki and Marduk) in the peace treaty is also found in the Epic of Etana, which says that
„The Great Anunnaki who decide fates
Sat and changed their opinions about the Earth.
They created the four regions,
Established the settlements.„
As traces of the Pelasgians are found everywhere in the world, it seems that the gods divided the primordial humans between themselves, each creating their own race in their respective territories. For example, Peruvian myths state that after the Deluge, Viracocha (Enlil) lived in Tiahuanaco and then went to Cuzco to make mankind multiply. After the division of territories and humans, the gods worked together to recivilize the Earth. Sumerian myths tell us that Enki taught humans animal husbandry, while Enlil taught them agriculture. The goddess Ninkasi even taught them how to make beer. Anu decided to give the humans barley from heaven, but Enlil disagreed and hid it. However, the brothers Ninazu and Ninmada, aided by Utu (Marduk), found the barley and brought it to humans. It seems that the division of land on Earth, the creation of human races through genetic means, their relocation to the gods’ new territories and their recivilization were lengthy processes that began with the peace treaty of 21,000 BC and lasted approximately 13 millennia or about 35 divine years until the first traces of agriculture emerged. Although it seemed that this treaty would maintain the hard-won peace, not all of the gods were satisfied. The four human races were divided among Ninhursag (on behalf of Anu), Enlil, Enki and Marduk, who also chose the largest continents. Ishtar received Australia, a smaller territory than the others, and had to create her own race, the Australoids, by crossing Enlil’s red-skinned people with Anu’s yellow-skinned people. Not satisfied with the result, she later created the Semitic race, which she used to invade the territories of the other gods. This is reflected in the name „Israel”, which the Jews used to name their people and later their country, which could be translated as „Ishtar, the ruling goddess”. Not only Ishtar did desire more power, but also Enki, who sent his people to the continent of Enlil (called Olmecs by researchers), and Marduk, who spread the Aryan race to neighboring territories, establishing the great Pelasgian Empire that stretched from Europe to India and China, including the north of Africa. These events led to new conflicts, new peace treaties and new territorial divisions, all as a result of the gods’ desire for power.
