Ea, the Clever Prince(?), was under oath with them
so he repeated their talk to the reed house:
'Reed hut, reed hut! Wall, wall!
O man of Shuruppak, son of Ubartutu:
Tear down the house and build a boat!
- Gilgamesh, Tablet XI

Will all of these letters and words which become sentences and stories
become something greater? Or will the story change until it ceases to exist?
Editor's Note: I am pissed I can't find the cuneiform to make this a wholly more fascinating post.
