An interesting snippet from the Wikipedia Anunnaki page:
The deities typically wore melam, an ambiguous substance which "covered them in terrifying splendor". Melam could also be worn by heroes, kings, giants, and even demons. The effect that seeing a deity's melam has on a human is described as ni, a word for the physical tingling of the flesh.
They were also sometimes depicted wearing clothes with elaborate decorative gold and silver ornaments sewn into them.
Melam & Ni
“Melam and ni are two Sumerian words which are often linked. Strictly speaking ni seems to denote the effect on human beings if the divine power Melam (Akkadian melammu). The Babylonians used various words to capture the idea of ni, including puluhtu, ‘fear’. The exact connotation of melam is difficult to grasp. It is a brilliant, visible glamour which is exudes by gods, heros, sometimes by kings, and also by temples of great holiness and by gods’ symbols and emblems. While it is in some ways a phenomenon of light, melam is at the same time terrifying, awe-inspiring. Ni can be experienced as a physical creeping of the flesh. Both Sumerian and Akkadian are rich in words to describe this phenomenon and its effects. Gods are sometimes said to ‘wear’ their melam like a garment or a crown, and like a garment or a crown, melam can be ‘taken off’. If the god is killed […], his melam disappears. While it is always a mark of the supernatural, melam carries no connotation of moral value: demons and terrifying giants can ‘wear it’ too.”

I'm going to have to get this book. 😏
Most other articles that come up in a search are all versions of this extract from the book.
But it got me thinking.
I do not think this Melan is any kind of magic or divine power. I suspect it's a technology. Sounds like some kind of electricity or power force is involved and harnessed that can be felt by humans.
For what purpose? Could be a number of them.
1. Personal protection from attack by weapons or physical assault.
2. Frequency adapter so they can interact physically with this realm.
3. A transparent, shimmery space suit that protects the wearer from elements in the external environment.
4. Technology to assist in shape-shifting and maintaining the 'glamour'.
I'll add more when I discover more to add.
Now ... one of my next topics would be about ME's. No, not me ME. ME's are more like the principles of civilisation that the Anunnaki applied when they came to guide humanity.
What's happening and what I'm working on [ Updated: 4 April 2021 ] I'm an ENTP* big-picture visionary and my research and thought processes are thematically kaleidoscopic, not linear or organised. The last few weeks have felt like flowing through molasses. I've dropped the ball on my motivation. My apologies to my lair members who may not have heard from me for a few weeks. 'Tis the season of family birthdays, including my own and my late sister's, and her children's. This is everyone's first since her death. Abounding in uncertainties and trepidations about how to proceed in this new era of her absence. As the in-situ matriarch, I carry the emotional burden for keeping others buoyed despite my own melancholia. Which is why I'm going to go easy on the self-castigation and focus on building up my energy up again from the basics, including getting enough sleep and eating nutritiously. I kept my own birthday low key as it's only two weeks bef
Here I will share what I have learned about Dante Santori, the current human incarnate of Azazael, an immortal Karistus Warrior . Any inaccuracies are mine alone. On first glance, Dante might seem an unlikely figure to carry such a powerful entity such as Azazael. However, don't underestimate him. He is born into Templar lineage in Portugal, and has undertaken military training. He is a scrappy fighter, and Azazael's imperious bearing shines through in his demeanour. Dante is behind most, if not all, videos on the DS AHK Youtube Channel . The DS is Dante Santori, of course, and AHK stands for Alien Human Kind. [ Update 18 Dec 2020: This channel has been terminated by youtube. The new home is The Cause channel. ] A quick comment about the videos on this channel. They are not designed for popular appeal, but to inform those who are drawn to learning the truth. They are intentionally designed to filter out those who should not be there, as the videos can be considered qu
Here I will write what I understand about The Cause. And some cliff-notes background to it. TL:DR Choose your side! Our world was created by one of the many creator beings in all the trillions of galaxies. Our particular creator was a Goddess. Note that the Creator Gods are an advanced race, and are not considered to be the supreme single source of life. These creator beings mix with other races, such as the Annunakene, the Kurs, and the Karistus. Other races were here even before humanity was created. They terraformed this world, established civilisations. They came, they went. Earth has always been a stopover planet, and continues to be so. Then The Goddess created humanity. Using various technologies available to her. There were some races that disagreed with her intentions for them and have been actively undermining her vision for tens of thousands of years. Humanity's evolution should have happened much more slowly if they had been left to thei
The Kurs are an alien race that is friendly to humanity, but can look quite frightening in their default mantid appearance. This post attempts to pull together as much information about them as I can muster. So DS uploaded this video about a week after I'd written this post. An interesting coincidence, perhaps? I'll add more images at the end of this post. ___________ When I came across this image below, I felt compelled to keep a copy. I sense there is a lot of important information contained here, a lot of which I admit to not understanding consciously, but I find my intuition is spiking strongly. I'm not sure of the image source, but I suspect it's from a book on metaphysics from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. It reminds me of the style of illustration in some of Walter Russell's books. The feature that struck me immediately was the insectoids near the entrances of the pyramid. It was this that prompted me to save this image so I could study it mor
Foreword: I am far from being an expert in battle science, as I suspect many of my readers would be, so consider this an exploratory foray into the landscape of battle - from quests with swords to calculated insurgencies to futuristic technologies that look almost magical. This post is a curation from various sources to help me begin to make sense of the chaos in our (mostly) digital world and why we feel so untethered. Warfare used to be brutally simple ... combatants with weapons would meet at a time and place designated by one or both parties and fight it out until one side was subjugated to the winner's satisfaction. World War IV will NOT be fought with sticks and stones because WWIII is being fought under new rules of such stealth and infiltration that many countries and their citizens don't even realise they are under attack. Military needs often drive the evolution of technology. The arrival of, and access to the internet may not be as god-sent as it might first app
