This tablet introduced the one of important story in the epic of Gilgamesh. Utnapishtim saved the human during flood which mean mortals can achieve immortality through lasting works of civilization and culture. Personally, we should be brave and smart during the time we facing the huge disaster or problem as Utnapishtim.
Like Hebrew myth and Chinses myth, this tablet present the god send a great flood to world and there is a hero stop the flooding or save the people during the flooding. I believed this three same myth have some relationship. I think this story may present that human have the ability to overcome the natural disaster such as flooding, tornado, and earthquake.
