Joudy

We are told that this is the name of an ancient Sumerian goddess, linked with Ba'al, but I am struggling to find any external confirmation of this.

Anyone got it? Or is perhaps Frost making this up? (Ba'al is a real reference, for sure, but I can't find Joudy, except where the source is the Final Dossier - maybe I didn't try hard enough)

I can find a reference to "utukku" ( https://www.deliriumsrealm.com/babylonian-assyrian-demonology/) but not Joudy yet. Will keep looking though.

The best I've found is the Chinese word jiāo dài. You can see in the link below means: to hand over, to make clear, to explain, etc. Which is an interesting choice considering that Lynch has always hated to give any explanation to his work and  the idea of doing so could be seen as a very negative force at work.

Nothing found on internet with "Joudy".

Yes, there is some references to utukku.

In Sumerian mythology the Utukku was a spirit that lived underground. The benevolent type was called Lamassu and the evil one was referred to as Edimmu.

The Edimmu were thought to cause disease and inspire criminal behavior in the living, but could sometimes be appeased by funeral repasts or libations. The Edimmu were also thought to be completely or nearly incorporeal, “wind” spirits that sucked the life out of vulnerable and sleeping persons, in most cases this related to young people.

So I looked around the internet and found the Wikipedia page for uttukku - and that a dialect replaces t with d and k with g = UDUG. And with our black lodge backwards talk and a little phonetic imagination can be translated to Judy.

also Ba'al as in Beelzebub = BOB.

but if BOB was searching for Judy - how did it not know that its previous host Leland was married to the host of Judy?!

I'm also noticing some backwards syllables similarities between joudy and dougie. Was janey-e 'real' Diane's sister? There seems to be something weird that's on the tip of my tongue.

if Judy=uttukku and bob=ba'al. Are there similar Sumerian entities that represent the other lodge entities and the giant? Mike?

Yeah, this is part of why I have always been thinking that the possession of Sarah by Judy - if that is indeed how we read this - must have been recent. I'm thinking after what we saw with the glass box in NY.

Joudy is just a fictional name. So utukku are spirits of underwold that must fetch home the fruit of the sacrifices and burnt offerings(consisted of blood and liver etc.) of animals (garmonbozia?). Utukku torments people by posession. All the spirits in Black Lodge are utukku.

I thought it was an evil diner in Odessa where Carrie Page worked when she wasn't blowing holes in the foreheads of men in her living room. I jest of course however I have a hard time with the Most important victim of the show havin ANYTHING to do with the driving negative force of the show.  I mean Laura was no saint, a little drugs here, a bit of prostitution there but c'mon, she was the homecoming queen, loved by everyone including her father (Maybe a bit too much) helped with meals on wheels etc etc. This girl was in no way a dark and evil force that the fictional Jowdai was supposed to be.  But I guess if you go with Yin and Yang then she would need to be incorporated somehow...no wait that would be Dale Cooper.

Just when I thought I was getting better....lynch scrambles my brain again...

Hate it when the seeming random Lynch scramble happens.
