The Earth in Daimones – An Apocalyptic Travel

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even with the best of intentions, cruelty is just around the corner.

The Daimones Trilogy deals with many themes, from survival and the rebirth of the race of man after an alien apocalypse, to love and romance in a dying world, and the rise of new ethics and morals. 

Why on earth does Earth become Eridu in the “Daimones Trilogy“?

Every name in the trilogy bears a symbolic meaning. Eridu was long considered to be the earliest city in southern Mesopotamia, and is still today argued to be the oldest city in the world. Located 12 km southwest of Ur, Eridu was the southernmost of a conglomeration of Sumerian cities that grew about temples, almost in sight of one another.

In Sumerian mythology, Eridu was originally the home of Enki, who was considered to have founded the city, later known by the Akkadians as Ea. His temple was called E-Abzu, as Enki was believed to live in Abzu, an aquifer from which all life was believed to stem. Eridu, also transliterated as Eridug, means “mighty place” or “guidance place”.
And now, let’s have an imaginary travel in Eridu, visiting 28 famous places in the world, and let’s have a game to win ebooks, paperbacks and have fun guessing how long it would take for the world to become as in the pictures when we will disappear. In the game, some places are easily recognizable (at least 10 of them), others much less, but all are known iconic places in the cities we’ll explore together through the post-apocalyptic pictures.
So, here’s the rules of the game.
