What compelled these antediluvians to be so foolish as to revolt against the Holy One, and how did they become actuated with the idea of building a tower whose top should reach into heaven?

The Sepher Ha-Zohar
The Book of Light

We learn from tradition that by the words, ‘and it came to pass as they journeyed from the east’ (miquidem) scripture informs us that they quitted the highlands for the plains, the land of Israel, in order to fix their habitation in Babel. ‘Here,’ said they, ‘we can live and dwell, come let us make to ourselves a name, or in other words, let us worship and adore the god of this world, and by doing so acquire and enjoy his favor and help; so that when catastrophes and calamities occur, we shall have a sure refuge and means of escape from their baneful and destructive effects. Here is abundance of food, and we may reap plentiful harvests which in the past have cost us so great toil and labor. Nay, more, let us make a tower reaching up to heaven, so that we may mount and wage war in the domain of the Premier’ himself, and thus prevent him from again overwhelming and destroying mankind with a deluge, as in the past.’ It is written, ‘And the Lord said the people is one and they have all one language and this they begin to do, and now nothing will be restrained from which they have imagined to do’ (Gen. XI. 6). The meaning of which words this is. In the celestial world when all its spheres are harmonious, power is the result. So is it in the world of mankind when all minds become imbued and swayed by unity of thought and feeling. Whatever enterprise or project is undertaken, it is bound to succeed and be accomplished whether its object be good or evil. To nullify their impious intention and purpose of waging war against it was essential that this unity of design should be broken and their plans be thwarted and, therefore, as stated, ‘The Lord scattered these builders of Babel and dispersed them abroad upon the face of the earth. And that they might be compelled to cease the building of their city, he confounded their language so that they were unable to understand each other’s thoughts and respond to them. Before this the holy language was universally spoken.

The Great Year and The Destruction of the World by Fire and Water
The opposite idea to the destruction by a great flood is the destruction of the world by fire. No mention of such an idea has yet been found in any original Babylonian or Assyrian text, but there is evidence that such a doctrine did prevail among the Babylonians. Seneca quotes Berossus as having made an allusion to this, and the passage is so important that it is here reproduced. There seems good reason also for supposing that this Babylonian idea may have passed over to the Hebrews. The matter is not quite certain, but the following passages may be echoes of these Babylonian idea. Below are two quotes different records of the same account, slightly different but offering the same information.

-From Seneca, Nat. Qucest. iii. 29.
Berosus, who thus interprets the Babylonian tradition, says that these events take place according to the course of the stars ; and he affirms it so positively as to fix the time for the general conflagration of the world, and the deluge. He maintains that all terrestrial things will be consumed when the planets, which now are traversing their different courses, shall all coincide in the sign of Cancer, and be so placed that a straight line could pass directly through all their orbs. But the flood will take place, he says, when the same conjunction of the planets shall take place in the constellation Capricorn. The summer is in the former constellation, the winter in the latter.

-From Carl Muller's Fragmenta Historicorum Graecbrum.
Berossus who interpreted Bel, says that this will happen through the course of the stars, and affirms it to this extent that he appoints times for the conflagration and for the deluge. He argues that the earthly things will be burned, when all the stars, which now have diverse courses, shall come together in Cancer, so that placed in one position a straight line might pass through all. On the other hand, there will be a flood when the same stars come together in Capricorn. The former is the summer solstice, the latter the winter solstice — signs of great moment, for in them are the chief changes of the year.

Every 19 years marks 1 full Babylonian Great Year (235 Months). Every 19 years, 5 celestial orbs align, at which time the ancients would burn the crops and fields, followed by allowing the river to flood and wash over the burned land. This was done to enrich the farmlands and maintain their growing population.

As this story travelled from culture to culture, the reason in which the flooding and burning took place was lost, and only the destruction of the world component of the story had remained. Eventually, a story of enriching farmland would later be known as multiple times the world was destroyed, sometimes with fire, sometimes with water.
