"Uru" had several different meanings in Sumerian, among them:

A city, or community.
Deep.
A mythological underground paradise.
A devastating thunderstorm.

Also, Ur was an ancient city in Mesopotamia, uru- was a prefix attached to city names, and ur- was a shared Semitic/Indo-European prefix that survives intact in German and gives us our word "original" (with roughly the same meaning). Correct me if I'm wrong, but for this ancient culture the value or quality of something was not in itself, but in how closely it resembled the original something. Hence the ties between the underground paradise, cities in general, and originality.

It probably helps that Rand is the son of a minister. It's not too surprising to see some religious themes running through the Myst series.

To all the people interrested in the oldest legends, I would suggest you read, Zecharia Sitchin, "The twelfth Planet".

You would save a lot of searching and money.

It is possible to get some spoilers if you visit his web site...

If you spend any time reading those DRC research notebooks on the Tokotah rooftop, you'll see some every strong parallels between D'ni society and ancient Hebrew culture...

I noticed that too.

The Grower is also quite close to the Messiah. (The Tree will grow again/Will lead the Jews out of captivity)


It's very interesting. Also, we don't know if we can predict what will happen next via the Bible/Torah because there are some major differences, and it would be no fun if we could do that.

I've always seen Yeesha as the Jesus/Messiah figure of the Myst mythos.

Yes.

There's the Yahvo/Yaweh connection.

And Yeesha is quite similar to the name Yeshua (Joshua), the Hebrew equivalent of the name Jesus... I think J's replaced all the Greek I's and Hebrew Y's in many names in the early Latin Biblical translations.

There are some connections made from Native American Mythology and the D'niverse as well. (Where is Ravin? She had some good ones.)

Anyway, There is the creation myth for the Puebloans or the Chacoans, that say that men were born from the earth, or the first man came from underground. Also, the spiral thingy was to tell time and seasons for Chacoans, one famous one up on the Butte in the Canyon.

Let's see what else, the way the Chacoans built their houses out of stone, their religious houses dug into the earth, they lived mainly in New Mexico, and (if I remember correctly) the Navajo call themselves the Dine.

So, I think there are connections, but the connections are when some of the D'ni escaped from the cavern to the Surface while the fans were being built.
Or, the Bahro had influence on the Ancient Puebloans, or...or...

I've always thought about those parallels (considering where I live) and I remember getting all excitted when my navajo friend told me there name. I was like, "Ha! That is so cool!" because its pronounce almost like D'Nay
