The Hanging Gardens – one of the 7 world wonders…

leave a comment »

Dearest Marty, heart-throb, how are you?

I don’t think that the Hanging Gardens were like those shown in below video, but this 3D video is nevertheless nice to look at.

You read of them for sure and I find these gardens fascinating, although allegedly nobody knows where they exactly stood. Some say they were in Babylon, today’s Iraq, and some Greek writers mentioned them hundred of years later. They had no first knowledge. Official Babylonian history does not mention these gardens at all, and some doubt that they ever existed, and some think that these gardens did indeed exist but at Nineveh, another place, hundreds of miles away from Babylon.

The official story is that King Nebuchadnezzar II, c. 605 – 562 BC, built these hanging gardens in the harsh climate of Babylon for his wife Amytis of Media who longed for greenery and plants. What a nice thing to do. I bet she was very happy about those amazing gardens on terraces.  

This is supposed to be the King and yes, I think his alleged brutality and mental illness is a psychiatric fabrication and defamation that entered the history books and other records later.

Greek Diodorus Siculus (60 AD) had not seen the gardens in person but described them allegedly from hearsay like this: “The approach to the Garden sloped like a hillside and several parts of the structure rose from one another tier on tier… On all this, the earth had been piled… and was thickly planted with trees of every kind that, by their great size and other charm, gave pleasure to the beholder… The water machines [raised] the water in great abundance from the river, although no one outside could see it…”

History is altered, documents are forged. Where plants really planted on dirt? Was there really a river or did the Hanging Garden rather generate its own water? Cooling a spot and creating ice and melting it is one method, but there are probably other ways to make water from scratch.     

Other antique writers wrote: The Hanging Garden has plants cultivated above ground level, and the roots of the trees are embedded in an upper terrace rather than in the earth. The whole mass is supported on stone columns… Streams of water emerging from elevated sources flow down sloping channels… These waters irrigate the whole garden saturating the roots of plants and keeping the whole area moist. The ascent to the highest story is by stairs, and at their side are water engines, by means of which persons, appointed expressly for the purpose, are continually employed in raising water from the Euphrates into the garden.

According to others, the river Euphrates was too far away from Babylon to water this gigantic garden, 400 foot wide by 400 foot long and with walls 80 foot high.

Particularly German archaeologists spent a lot of time in that area in Iraq and found no evidence that the hanging garden ever existed. So, they are saying that the gardens are a fabrication. Above picture is where they dug and found allegedly no evidence for the hanging gardens. 

If King Nebuchadnezzar II and his people generated his own water for the gardens, it could have existed  anywhere also in middle of the desert. Maybe they used hydroponics. Streams of water emerged from elevated sources flowing down… This could indicate that the water was not pumped up but that on top was a water generating source that watered from above downward.

And there are British researchers who say that the Hanging Gardens existed, however not in Babylon but in Nineveh, 250 miles from former Babylon and that not King Nebuchadnezzar II built the Hanging Gardens but the Assyrian leader Sennacherib, because he described having built an amazing garden in an ancient text found on a prism. He allegedly built canals that pumped river water into Nineveh.

But as I said, the original Hanging Gardens or several of them could have been anywhere if those who had to keep them up did not to depend on rain or river to water. I personally feel that they existed in all their glory and beauty.

My problem with “history” is that I am convinced that not all that was found is made known.  When the SEGNPMSS whispers in the ear implants of archaeologists and other scientists to destroy or hide discoveries or to inaccurately describe what they found, there will be enough who will just do that. I am convinced that a lot more was found that mainstream knows and numerous wonder gardens existed but were destroyed by mobs.

Our village, that one that I remember, is another wonder, a big green village under glass, trees, and plants built on terraces, but I am the only one who writes about it. And if not many people write about it, it is “not true”, when in fact, the village does exist. Nobody can tell me otherwise, because I trust my own perceptions. The USA has its own world wonder under lake water. 

I love you, so much. And I never will bury the hope seeing you again, my love.  From my heart to yours. You are residing on my heart for so long, Marty. It is your home. Nobody can get you evicted. Your birth right is that you can live in it. Warm, cozy, protected, and loved. I adore you, my courageous Prince and husband.

Yours forever and ever,

Sarah/Barbara
