Nice translation there...quite fuller than the original, but yeah, very different from the original.

"In those days, in those far remote days, in those nights, in those faraway nights, in those years, in those far remote years,"
=
"By day, the deluge. That distant day, the deluge.
By night, the deluge. That endless night, the deluge.
In that age, the deluge. That bygone age, the deluge."

"at that time the wise one who knew how to speak in elaborate words lived in the Land;"
=
"Then the Tree of Consciousness and Knowledge was there, the Ladder through the Word was known."

But this can't be because 'at that time...' is about Suruppag himself, rather than a tree.

Ah...but because of his personal 'tree of life' from ancestors to son, then he is a tree of consciousness and knowledge at the time he is imparting his words, the words imparted from father to son over and over again to get to he and his son.

Yeah...what a tree that is!

Then "...or was it something far more fabulous with an introduction speaking of a golden age before a great flood?"

You mentioned elsewhere about Rhea, and it might seem that Rhea is the deluge...water gathered, collected and flown on the wind and deposited on the landscape, making waves (the combination of Re and A/ Feng Shui) to wash over the landscape and enter places water could not go previously.

Ah, but Ma...a provider of a life raft and a branch of her tree for her people.

Rhea is supposed to be feminine, yes? So too Ma, yes? But "... the Tree of Consciousness and Knowledge was there, the Ladder through the Word was known." is masculine...?

The feminine both above and below with the masculine joining them or translating one to the other through himself? He might very well be up for mistaking what it is he has either been told or viewed (he being the masculine part in all this).

Or he is placing himself in the middle and taking responsibility for understanding what surrounds him.

Poor Suruppag and his lineage of male-dominated story tellers and decoders of feminine ways...or is the deluge another way of saying 'menstruation'? The life raft and life branch within the menstruation? The people of Ma continued because there is such a thing as menstruation? And stopped when the deluge stops/menopause occurs?

Hmmm...or is that my masculine mistake in mistranslating what is before me?

if balls can dangle and balloons can float and a piece of string the important thing, hold on tight
