“The terms Anunnaki, Anakim, and even Nephilim mean “those who came down to Earth from heaven” and is a reference to their position and location on the plateau of Eden (Eden means plateau). They looked down on the people below – watched. They represented the sun, moon, and planets, on Earth. It does not, as some would have us believe, imply that they came from the stars, but were representatives of the celestial deities.”
“The truth of the story of the Shining Ones and their Watchers has been the subject of a purging by many Jewish authorities, who were understandably concerned that the myths of these angels and their worship would distract people from the worship of the one god.”
According to Andrew Collins in From the Ashes of Angels: The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race, the fallen Watchers swear an oath and bind themselves together.
Following these actions of the fallen Watchers, the Shining Ones called down a great flood upon the Earth to destroy the offspring, and Noah is warned to build a great ship to escape the impending doom.
There was obviously some great battle between the dissenters and the Shining Ones and the loyal Watchers, which allowed Michael, Gabriel, and the others to slay the remaining fallen Watchers. The flood is the symbolic idea of the later cleansing of the land (and mind) and the restarting of the human race (or self) on track with the Shining Ones’ ideals – a probable merging of a folk memory of some great catastrophe and the actual event.
There were other catastrophes written up as being the judgment of the remaining Watchers, which must simply be folk memories of actual catastrophes that occurred and were blamed upon the transgressions of the fallen Watchers.
Indeed, even the spirits of these fallen Watchers are blamed for future evils, as Enoch points out:
And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded them.
