The Ancient Anunnaki are said to have created the human race by genetically modifying early humans in order to use them as a labor force. But before humans were created, the Igigi were used by the ancient Anunnaki as their main labor force.
WHO AND WHAT WERE IGIGI
It is said that the Igigi –they who turn and see—were the Ancient Astronaut Gods of the younger generation, the servants to the mighty Anunnaki who came to Earth to mine gold.
The terminology used to describe the gods is extremely complicated and still needs many studies. Researchers believe the term Igigi is of Semitic origin and indicates the group of gods in the Mesopotamian pantheon. It is still unclear which ancient gods belonged to the Igigi, but many scholars suggest Mardik –the patron god of the city of Babylon—was one of the Igigi.
Mainstream scholars use the term Igigi to reference the mythological Sumerian deities. The Anunnaki were served by the Igigi until the Igigi revolted, forcing the Anunnaki to create Mankind. These servants were not slaves; they were held in high regard, and they were created only to relieve the gods of their labour. In the beginning, Mankind had no set lifespan, and so the gods could only control overpopulation via flood, plague, and famine. During the final deluge, the gods wept at the suffering of Mankind, and so Man was given a set lifespan.
In the myth of Atrahasis –the Babylonian story of the Flood and a precursor to the flood story in the Gilgameš Ep– the Sumerian paradise is described as a garden where lower gods (the Igigi) were put to work digging a watercourse by their masters, the Anunnaki:
“When the gods like men bore the work and suffered the toil, the toil of the gods was great, the work was heavy; the distress was much.”
“The Seven great Anunnaki were making the Igigi suffer the work.”
“When the gods, man-like, Bore the labor, carried the load, The gods’ load was great, The toil grievous, the trouble excessive. The great Anunnaku, the Seven, Were making the Igigi undertake the toil.”
BRIDGE BETWEEN EARTH AND NIBIRU
Ancient Astronaut hypothesis suggests that the Igigi were similar to the Anunnaki, remaining in constant orbit around our planet. They were basically considered as intermediaries between our planet and Nibiru –home of the Anunnaki.
Many believe that the Igigi remained in constant orbit around our planet in giant platforms which processed ore delivered from Earth. After processing the minerals, the material was transferred to other ships and eventually transported to the home planet of the Anunnaki.
NEVER ENCOUNTERED BY MANKIND
It is said that several texts make reference to them, suggesting the Igigi were “too high up for Mankind,” and consequently “ were not concerned with people.”
After years of tenuous and hard work for the Anunnaki, the Igigi rebelled against their masters. It is sad that they ‘set fire to their tools and surrounded Enlil’s great house by night’ forcing the ancient Anunnaki to find another source of labor.
This is why the ancient Anunnaki replaced the Igigi after genetically engineering ancient humans creating a greater workforce.
Many authors suggest that the human ‘slave race’ was created after the ancient Anunnaki genetically modified their genes and that of early humans nearly 500,000 years ago.
LACK OF INFORMATION
Judging by the lack of Igigi references in ancient texts, humanity must have had little or no direct contact with the previous servant race. The Igigi may have or may have not been a class of Anunnaki, but whoever they were, whatever they were- they faded into to woodwork after human beings were created.
Did they return home in Nibiru? Did they simply ascend to the same class as their fellow Anunnaki now that a slave race had been created to fill their prior role? Why don’t we know more about them? Was knowledge of the Igigi concealed on purpose by the Anunnaki? If so, why?
Perhaps the truth will be revealed when the Anunnaki will return.
