“The Eight” Flood Survivors in Global Deluge Legends A Shared Human Memory

A big percentage of the – by now – over 700 global Flood legends, mentioned exactly eight people who were spared and survived. It is uncanny that this number is handed down as fact so uniformly, instead of ten or five or some other random number.

EGYPT: In ancient Egypt one Flood hero was Toth who survived the Deluge along with his Seven Sages.

The Egyptian ‘Ogdoad (does the Latin word for 8 ‘octo’ from that?) were a group of eight survivors led by the main character Nun and his wife Naunet. Nun or Nu (Noah) is pictured in Egyptian art as upholding his boat with the seven other survivors here:

每一位在中國、台灣以及大中華地區的學子們很早就已經學過中國的始祖和歷史。 但大部分的中國古老歷史都被修飾美化超過近4500年而且演變成了神話。因此現今21世紀的中國人對於他們最早的祖先相當模糊,若不是這篇文章裡揭露這有 趣的發現,直到末日前,他們可能對自己最早的祖先仍然是模糊不清的。

Every school-child in China, Taiwan, and other Chinese places, learns already early on about their original Chinese patriarchs and their histories. But the most ancient Chinese history has become quite embellished over 4 1/2 thousand years and changed into mythology. As a result, the 21st Century Chinese are quite confused about their earliest primo-genitors, and if it weren’t for a very interesting discovery that this article reveals, their earliest patriarchs would have stayed obscure until the end of time.

Chinese Table of Nations Early Emperors + Ancient Patriarchs 三皇五帝

DaYuFloodThis is –so far– the best we can do to picture the genealogies & relationships of the earliest Chinese patriarchs like Nüwa, Fuxi, Shen Nong Shi, Huang Di, Yan Di, etc, and their descent from each other all the way to Da Yu. It took quite a while to put together and I hope it can be of use for some people and researchers to understand how tightly interwoven the early Chinese ancestors actually were, and that they were anything but “mythological” but rather legendary and true!

Sure, there were many embellishments inserted into their lives over the millennia, but the persons are real! Even the dragons they rode are historical as you can find out on our other posts! Even Marco Polo reported the Chinese used dragons to pull carts! To see large version, right-click on the pic and then on ‘VIEW IMAGE”! Enjoy!

Manu the Indian Noah & his Flood story agrees with 600 other Deluge accounts

Manu

Ever heard the Deluge story of the Indians? Above is an Indian illustration of 8 Flood survivors on a boat pulled by a fish? It follows the story of MaNU, (also called Satyavrata) the Indian name for Noe, Noahk, Nur, Nu-U, Nu-Ah, Nüwa, OuraNOH, whichever nation’s name you prefer to use for our great global Patriarch and ancient leader of the eight Deluge survivors known from over seven hundred ancient legends worldwide! This comes from the oldest Indian book called the ‘Satapatha Brahmana’ & the ‘Matsya Purana’.

In various Hindu traditions, Manu, is a title accorded to the progenitor of mankind, and the very first king to rule this earth, who saved mankind from the great flood, after being warned of it by the Matsya avatar of Vishnu, who told him to build a giant boat and populate it with “his family animals, and 9 types of SEEDS!”

Seeds on the Ark are not mentioned in Genesis by Moses, but it makes perfect sense, as many people ask the question, “from what did the new trees, grasses and plants grow after the water receded?” Well of course there were seeds floating on the water and in the air, and perhaps some buried shallowly in the mud, but likely not too many. So there is the Indian answer to that skepticism.

what-is-mythINTRO: We apply the Euhemerist approach for historical origins — that thank God modern Chinese scholars also follow now — and so take “myths” serious as ’embellished legends’ that carry a factual believeancientsourcewpcore of true historical original characters who became super-naturally glorified via man worship & deification. We do not accept the Darwinian dogma (as Wicked Pedia uses) that the ancients purposely spun unfounded wild tales about themselves creating fictional primo-patriarchs, especially considering the fact chiyou-hansourcethat these legendary characters are mentioned by other ethne as well. Case in point: Chi You(蚩尤) patriarch Txiv Yawg of 12 Miao (Hmong) tribes, was mentioned by Chinese as the son of Yan Di(炎帝), albeit with different spelling, and without deification, of course, depicted as an ‘enemy’ defeated by Huang Di at the Battle of Zhuolu.

HuangDi-YellowEmperor1-201x300[Sect.1 by Ulrich Theobald, diagram & sect. 2 by Lu.]
The Yellow Emperor (Huang Di 黃帝) is considered to be the ancestor of the Chinese people. The clan of the Yellow Emperor (Huangdi zu 黃帝族) aShaanXi-West-of-Shannd the clan of Yan Di his brother (Yandi zu 炎帝族), are thought to have represented the Qijia culture 齊家文化 in modern Gansu and Shaanxi provinces.

Later the tribes obviously moved east to found the cultures of the Central Plain 中原 as basic cultures of Chinese civilization, with a people later named 華夏 (or simply Hua 華 or Xia 夏) who founded China’s first dynasty, the Xia 夏 under ‘Da Yu’ the Great!

Another descendant of the Yellow Emperor’s clan is a clan with the surname Ji 姬 who later founded the Zhou Dynasty 周. Ancestorship of the Yellow Emperor was often construed to obtain legitimation for rulership. Even non-Chinese tribes would later claim their descendency from the Yellow Emperor.
