In Ancient Mesopotamia, ''Kur'' was the name given to The Sumerian and Akkadian religious concept of The Underworld. It was a Region located in a ''Dark Cave'' deep under The Earth where no light was known. All ''food and drink'' was dust. In many Funerary Rituals of Mesopotamia, Relatives of deceased persons would routinely pour water or wine onto the ground (as a means of easing their suffering). And while Peoples in This Region had no contemporary view of Eternal Bliss or punishment , they thought that a persons worth and wealth in ''life'' translated as such in death. Kur was ruled by The Goddess Ereshkgal, from which many Sumerian Demons (both good and evil) were sired.
