“First, we are shifting the sand… The emphasis of the “Year-1” Mardukite Chamberlains work–compiled in its entirety for the NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE–is specifically what could be considered “Mardukite” from an Egypto-Babylonian perspective. The works reviewed are the most famous and influential to come form Nabu’s (son of Marduk) order of priest-scribes in ancient post-Sumerian Babylon, where tablets were forged to show the Anunnaki deity Marduk as supreme. In regards to the Anunnaki pantheon, a “Sumerian” background will almost undermine the ‘legitimacy’ concerning the hierarchy of the Anunnaki, a ‘Sumerian Secret’ concealed in the Babylonian renderings as well as the “Year-1” reflection of ‘Babylon-through-Babylonian-eyes.'” —JOSHUA FREE
[This Mardukite Necrogate blog post quotes Joshua Free from a live workshop regarding the ‘Mardukite Core’ originally given on November 15, 2009 while networking in the underground New Age community during the initial release of the Year-1 ‘Mardukite Core’ as NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE, when the Year-2 GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON materials were about to be first developed.

“Then, we are reconstructing a New Babylon! …The libros resulting from the “Year-1” work in NECRONOMICON: THE ANUNNAKI BIBLE are reconstructed in a manner synchronous to their observed use by the Mardukites of ancient Babylon (and also in Egypt where MARDUK was known as RA). The tablets composing this work were all forged by a powerful society of Nabu priest-scribes who served the tradition of Eridu and the line of ENKI and MARDUK (preferred over ENLIL) in the southern half of Mesopotamia. Understand–the specifically ‘Babylonian Mardukite’ tradition is not necessarily the ‘beginning and end of the story’, but it is the first and most critical turning point between the prehistoric proto-Sumerian Ubaid Anunnaki paradigm and the later post-Babylonian influenced traditions, customs, spiritual beliefs and cultural worldviews still in effect on the planet today. A seeker coming into this ‘field of study’ and taking up the work conducted by the Mardukite Chamberlains, gains clarity into the hows and whys of the world by beginning with the ‘system’ – the archetype of all ‘systems’ – BABYLON.”
When the Mardukite Chamberlains began ‘banding’ together a contemporary vision of the original ‘Egypto-Babylonian’ or “Mardukite” lore, there was only one other volume (and a well known book) that might be remotely correlated to the effort, at least from the perspective of modern practice and how it could be relayed to the esoteric sects of society – and that was the “Simon” Necronomicon. But… “Simon’s” work is very liberally ‘bastardized’ from what the Mardukite Chamberlains would later find to be a more “more complete” renderings of a ‘similar’ tradition that directed under the authority of the Priests of Nabu in ancient Babylon and even Egypt.
If there is, indeed, an occult or ‘practical magick’ element to be gleaned at from the Mardukite work, its emphasis would be the global origins of such systems, the mystical traditions that were born in prehistoric Eridu (near the Persian Gulf) by ENKI, with MARDUK as the assistant — the first priest of Eridu during the pre-Babylonian (Sumerian) age. The system of ‘magick’ emerging from Eridu was later synthesized and systematized in Babylon under the name (or names) of MARDUK, with NABU assisting by that time (in Babylon) as the active scribe-priest and magician — the first high-priest of Babylon during the post-Sumerian age and active leader of the original ancient “Mardukite” paradigm!
The Evolution of a Tradition… Since the Babylonian age, humanity’s tendency toward ‘system-fracture’ and ‘fragmentation’ simply evolved and developed further – seemingly separated by semantics, space an time – but still using the same basic archetypes.The ‘greatest kept secrets of Babylon’ (those concerning the supremacy of MARDUK and the pre-Babylonian lineages of ENLIL) were reserved for the ‘elite’, a ‘secret order’ made up of those who could carry out the tradition reverently while keeping a closed guard on the truth that might undo the benefit of such endeavors. This ‘closed’ Council of Nabu thus maintained knowledge of these things separate from the overt remainder of the system – the ‘system’ in which the people (and even the gods) had been ‘brought’ into…
