So who exactly were the "Sons of the Law of One" in Atlantis?
Were they other more "benevolent" Annunaki?
Another group of beings from a different star-system?
Fairly involved story there, which I plan to cover in a future paper. I'll see if I can do a quick summary. (Well, after hitting Preview, maybe not so quick...)
First, you need to understand what Atlantis IS, which I laid the groundwork for in Geochronology. In those days, the oceans were much narrower (the planet expands at the rifts, creating more ocean floor) and there were just 2 major continents. On the larger continent, the All-father, An, established Sumeria, the mother colony (Mu), with its capital city of Eridu (from which we get "Earth"). His sons, Enki and Enlil, were always fighting so he sent Enki (the more trustworthy of the two) to the other continent on the other side of the planet to establish a second mining colony there. Enki took his "floating temple" Abzu (colony ship) and landed it in what we now call South America. Back then Antarctica was equatorial, with the west coast of the Americas wrapping around it, making a single continent that had not yet broken apart from an Earth expansion event.
Enki named the colony after his ship, Abz (Az or Oz), with the "land of Az" being known as Aztlan. Back on the other side of the planet, it became associated with Atlas, becoming a phonetic mix known as "Atlantis." The Greek name for Enki is Poseidon, so that's how the land came to be known as Poseida in that region--Poseidon's land, which is the same as Enki's land, which was Aztlan or Atlantis.
In the early colonization days, we find two continents, Mu and Atlantis, Mu being ruled by Enlil and Atlantis by Enki, on opposite sides of the planet--which were not very far apart, as the Aztlan Ocean was only a few hundred miles wide back then--an easy sail. And so is the stuff that legends are born.
To understand Sumerian history, you need to understand the sibling rivalry of the Annunaki gods, Enki and Enlil. Enki was the first born, and any guy that has a "kid brother" will understand this... Enlil was always jealous of Enki, and did everything he could to get Enki in trouble with his dad, An. Enki would get blamed for everything, and eventually lost his "first born" position to Enlil in the military ranking over a dispute on updating Lulu (the automaton "THINGS" that Cayce refers to) with Neanderthal DNA to make them better servants.
Enlil was your typical warlord type, wanting control and domination over everything. Enki was a scientist and engineer, more like a cross between Mr. Spock and Scotty, thinking more logically than Enlil, wanting to improve production and performance rather than roar commands and stomp around looking important. Enki took pride in his creations, the first Adam and later (after the serpent incident in the garden), Cro-Magnon man. He liked mankind, we were his pride and joy--a super-successful species adapted for the environment. And Enlil despised him--and us--for that.
Enki's first-born son was Marduk, known in Egyptian as Amon-Ra, or just Ra. And he took after his dad, liked humanity and had a good mind--and a somewhat rebellious nature against his uncle Enlil.
As you may have heard, history is written by the victors--and the victors are always portrayed as the "good guys." That is the case here... and if you look at who is now in charge of the planet, are they REALLY the good guys???
Check your mythology, you'll find two things: Enlil was a vengeful and angry god, and was originally tasked with the creation of a slave race to do the mining and servant duties of the Annunaki... he brought into existence mankind, or as they say in the old texts, "he causes to become"--in Hebrew, Jehovah
. And He shalt have no other gods before him--particularly his brother, whom he did everything to demonize (quite literally!)
Since Ra is Marduk, let's check other mythology... Ra is also known in adjacent regions as Baal, or in the Norse, Baldur or the Assyrian Bellus or Bel. In Norse mythos, Baldur is a wonderful god and savior of mankind. Stargate gave the Goa'uld Baal a bad name, though according to my sister, was deserving of his demonic attribute because he was "way hotter" than anyone on the Stargate team. And I think you can see how it is not exactly a big jump between "the followers of Bel" to "the followers of Belial." So what's going on here? Everything is backwards? Golly.
Another common technique used by governments to trick people into supporting them and doing their bidding, is to "co-opt" ideas, like government officials doing things under the guise of "patriotism," as they legislate away every freedom and liberty you have. Well, our governments are the descendents of this same bunch of tyrants, and the "tried and true" methods tend to hang on.
The "Law of One" was actually created by Doctor "Bones" Ninkhursag, Annunaki medical officer and sister to Enki and Enlil. Ninkhursag is probably the widest known of the "pro-mankind" goddesses, epitomized by Stargate's ascended Ancient, Oma Desala, "Mother Nature." The original teachings are more like a course at Hogwarts, based on the forbidden knowledge of the "one-ness" of the Universe, that Dewey Larson put in scientific and mathematical terms with his Unity-based Reciprocal System. The idea of "service to others" was based on the idea that, in a system of universal rapport, you are everything and everything is you, so by helping others you are helping yourself--but everyone benefits. Very simple concept, actually.
Enlil grabbed the opportunity to co-opt the Law of One's "service to other" concept--by making "other" refer to the Annunaki, "service to God." This became the basis of a powerful religion for the slave population, the same religion that Edgar Cayce was a strong proponent of. And everything he related was colored by his own beliefs, so when reading Cayce (or any channel), you need to be aware of the unconscious biases to information.
Just like our government officials tell us to "tighten our belts" and live off of 25-cent Ramen Noodle packets as they drive to a $10,000-a-plate political fundraiser extravaganza, Enlil--a lover of luxury and materialism--did the same thing to Enki, accusing him of self-aggrandizement of wealth and power, because Enki and Ninkhursag were trying to teach humanity the forbidden knowledge and create a "Dumbledore's Army" of wizards to stand against Enlil's attempts at global conquest and the total subjugation of the human population. As a result, that magical, forbidden knowledge was considered part of Enki's "demonic" teachings--even though it derives directly from the Organic Law of One.
With this background information, you can easily figure Cayce out on your own, as you read it. Just keep in mind that history being told by one of the victors. But the information is still good, once you have the background to understand it.
