NEW EARTH

THE MERGE

.
The fresh waters of the Ter River empty into the salt water of the Mediterranean on the north-east coast of Spain.

And up on the shore, the resort town L’Estartit lets visitors take in the sights of the estuary where the waters meet …

APSU AND TIAMAT

.
Apsu (sweet primeval waters)
Tiamat (salt primeval waters)
.
APSU … in the Babylonian creation epic, the Enûma Elish, taken from the library of Assurbanipal (c 630 BCE) but which is about 500 years older.

In this story, he was a primal being made of fresh water and created with the other primal deity, Tiamat, who was a creature of salt water … Nommo.

The Enuma Elish begins: “When above the heavens did not yet exist nor the earth below, Apsu the freshwater ocean was there, the first, the begetter, and Tiamat, the saltwater sea, she who bore them all; they were still mixing their waters, and no pasture land had yet been formed, nor even a reed marsh.”

This resulted in the birth of the children, who later murder Apsu in order to usurp his creation of the universe.

Enraged, Tiamat gives birth to the first dragons, filling their bodies with “venom instead of blood”, and made war upon her treacherous children, only to be slain by Marduk, the god of Storms, who then forms the heavens and earth from her corpse.

♫ Enya – May it be ♫

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadows call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utúlië (darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantië (darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now
