the summoning of enoch - 7
This edifice was the Building of Knowledge the ab-zu in which Ninkharsag and her teams of Serpent scientists researched the ecology of the area, and devised cures for the various plant diseases that they discovered.
Enoch was wide-awake, and continued to describe everything of importance that he saw:
[SE XIX: 1-5 PP] After this, the men brought me to the sixth haven, and there I saw seven groups of Angels, very bright and wonderful, with their faces shining brighter than the Sun. They were brilliant, and all dressed alike.
Some of these Angels study the movements of the Stars, the Sun and Moon, and record the peaceful order of World. Other Angels, there, undertake teaching and give instruction in clear and melodious voices. These are the Archangels (1) who are promoted over the ordinary Angels. They are responsible for recording (and studying) the fauna and flora in both the Highlands and the Lowlands.
There are Angels who record the seasons and the years; others who study the rivers and the seas; others who study the fruits of the earth, and the plants and herbs that give nourishment to men and beasts.
And there Angels study Mankind and record the behaviour of men and how they live.
This record of the sixth place to which Enoch was taken within Eden is the fullest statement that we have, anywhere, of the actual daily activities of the Angels/Anannage in the Settlement of Eden/Kharsag.
the extraordinary conclusion, which we find that we cannot avoid,
is that these recorded activities appear to be compatible with
the scientific interests of an exploration expedition into unknown
country or, perhaps, onto an unknown planet. Its members
appear to have been studying every facet of science which such
an expedition would require from geology to botany, and
from astronomy to anthropology.
