Gid’s Creation takes place over 7 days in Genesis. 7 is quite the number, indeed,
Speaking about that creation thing.
the gods cried to Aruru, the goddess of creation, ‘You made him, O Aruru; now create his equal; let it be as like him as his own reflection, his second self; stormy heart for stormy heart.'
So the goddess conceived an image in her mind, and it was of the stuff of Anu of the firmament. She dipped her hands in water and pinched off clay, she let it fall in the wilderness, and noble Enkidu was created.
Sort of sounds familiar.
So, the two main characters are Gilgamesh - being a creation of two gods with only a third part human - and Enkidu, his image, a creation of a goddess.
After killing Humbaba, "They uncovered the sacred dwellings of the Anunnaki and while Gilgamesh felled the
first of the trees of the forest Enkidu cleared their roots as far as the banks of Euphrates."
Is this really to be understood literally?
