Hi T Bird,

"The idea of the Bond of Heaven and Earth is given explicitly. Dur-an-ki, was the name of sanctuaries at Nippur, at Larsa, and prob­ably at Sippar.

The religious terms "dimgal of the Land" and the like perhaps indicate the temple as a kind of towering landmark which was a center of unity by its height ... the temen "above" or "of heaven" and the temen "of the abzu," or below.

The idea may be that the temple is, as it were a lofty column, stretch­ing up to heaven and down to the underworld-the vertical bond of the world.

Drains or pipes ... have been discovered at Ur. Thus, if these interpretations are right, the temples expressed not only, in their height, the idea of the bond with heaven but also, in their depth, that of union with the netherworld."
Hamlet's Mill. Appendix 32.

What could have been in those sockets? Maybe not drains or pipes.
