"The purpose of Initiation is a conventional attempt to realize man's place in the universe and in the divine scheme of things, and this, I believe, the Eyptptian Mystical System achieved for the first time in an orderly and philosophical manner..." - Lewis Spence

"To the Initiated of the sanctuary, no doubt, was reserved the knowledge of the god in the abstract, the god concealed in the unfathomable depths of his own essence. But for the less refined, adoration of the people were presented the endless images of deities sculptured on the walls of the tmeples." - Alphonse Mariette

As Egyptologists study the ancient Egyptian people and their culture, it appears they (and the rest of us) fall under the "less refined" group, as Alphonse Mariette states. We seem to be content to gaze upon the outer forms of the divinities (gods) sculpted on the walls of the temples, yet never think to understand that broad mystical concept of life of which these ancient gods were but the outer semblance and concrete symbol of. Their figures represented so much more than just their sculpted form.

The Egyptian priests taught a doctrine of metaphysics that appealed to the highest aspirations of Man, and they kept it a secret, never to be revealed to the people but under fables and allegories (ie. Osiris and Isis).

Imagine that.



u•rae•us (yoo re'as) n. a representation of the sacred asp upon the headdress of rulers of Ancient Egypt, symbolizing supreme power

Uraeus is a Greek word to describe a fiery cobra rearing up. In ancient Egypt, this serpent figure was attached to the front of a headdress/crown as an ornament, protruding from the forehead, above the brow, and worn by divinities and sovereigns. It was an emblem of "supreme power," reserved for divine royalty and diety. History books tell us it was believed to be a protective symbol that protected the king from all evil by spitting fire upon his enemies. They also tell us it is associated with the goddess Wadjet and Isis and bla, bla, bla...

In any case, thoroughout history, the snake/serpent/cobra symbolized:

• transformation and evolution
• the unconscious
• rejuvination and healing
• rebirth
• psychic energy
• rain
• fertility
• tempatation
• satan
• sex
• phallus
• sin (Christianity)


The uraeus crown was the symbol of true Initiation - symbol of an Initiate. The band of gold (crown) with a cobra rearing up from the forehaed was a symbol of procreative energy of life, which had been transformed and spiritualized. It was an insignia of the majestic position of a High Priest or High Priestess.

There was a time long before King Tutankhamen wore the uraeus crown when the King and the High Priest were one and the same person. He was the earthly and spiritual leader of the people. But as Egypt grew in culture and wealth, the tasks were divided up and a separation of duties followed; The Pharaoh ruled over the stately affairs and the High Priest fulfilled the duties of the Temple as guardian of knowledge in every field.

Fast Forward: Many years later, Egypt fell into decline. Under the Ptolemies came the dissipation of the sacred arcana and the violation of the sanctuaries of the Hermetic Gods. When this happened, the members of the secret schools separated and the priests retired into the Arabian desert and journeyed to different parts of the world, taking with them the old doctrines. When the sacred arana left Egypt, the original, true purpose/meaning/symbol of the uraeus crown went with it, and new symbolic meanings found their way into the history books. It was during these later years that the Egyptian kings and queens inherited the uraeus headdress as a traditional symbol of their great royal power and authority, not knowing that the crown they now wore was not the symbolic crown of an Initiate but simply costume jewelry.


The original uraeus (rearing cobra) represented the Divine Fire in the human body (spiritual energy) "rearing up" the spinal cord, through the chakra system, eventually activating the pituitary gland, or "Third Eye," which is located above the brow between your eyes, exactly where the uraeus is attached to the crown. (The snake in the human body is the spine, and the spine is an important nervous center and carrier of spiritual energy, known as Kundalini.)

It has been said that the Third Eye is a direct doorway to your subconscious (unconscious) mind. The headdress with the cobra head protruding from the forehead exemplifies this symbology.

When the Third Eye chakra is awakened, the person may see waking visions, places, and people as clairvoyance is a byproduct of this chakra. In ancient Egypt, the "INITIATE" who wore the uraeus crown possessed these abilities and other occult powers.

    "The casing of fine linen covering the cranium of Tut-Ankh-Amun's mummy.

    Embroidered gold beads and semiprecious stones delineate the double uraeus,

    which indicates the scissure between the two hemispheres of the brain

    (Howard Carter, The Tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amon, II, PLXXXII).

    The single royal uraeus appears on the diadem and on the crown."

    It must be understood that although the nervous, or physical, manifestation is provoked by the flux of the uraeus (Kundalini), the cause, the uraeus itself, is transcendent action.

    Other modern writers have equated this kundalini energy to the uraeus of Egyptian history. The kundalini energy is reputed to travel up the spine as two serpentine energy flows called the "ida" and the "pingala". They twine around the "sushumna". These energy flows are also represented in the caduceus of modern medicine.

    In Occult Chemistry, Charles Leadbeater and Annie Besant describe how they used "yogic vision" or the "third eye" to "see" the fundamental structures of matter. They described one of these basic subatomic structures as seven layers of recursive spirals around other spirals. This structure is depicted in Occult Chemistry by the picture below:


    These spirals form the basic structure of what Leadbeater and Besant call "anu":


    Dr. Stephen Philips, a physicist in England says that the "anu" structure is a good match with the quark of modern quantum physics. Tony Smith, another physicist uses the image from Occult Chemistry to illustrate the Compton radius vortex of the electron.



    The twin serpents of the double helix seem to show up frequently in science from the subatomic scale, to the structure of DNA, to the motions of celestial mechanics and even to the structure of galaxies......

    And Bambu, since you seem to know,

    1. Can you tell me a little more about Thoth/Djehuti, his role as a diety and an actual person, more about Hermetics or good books to read on the subject
    2. The system of dieties in ancient Egypt and what they represent. I've read a small amount of Egyptian cosmology but it seems to be a lot of back and forth arguing between people who study it so I'm not sure what or who is correct or how to interpret it. I understand also there were different periods in Egyptian history where the hierarchy of the dieties changed or the people went from one belief to another depending on the ruler of the time?? For instance, from what I understand, Akhenaten established monotheism at one point. It would be great if you could clarify that.

    There is so much information available about Tehuti that it's difficult to pick a starting point. We are familiar with the principles by now...

    He had many titles:

    Lord of Khemennu, self-created, to whom none hath given birth, god One; He who rekons in heaven, the counter of the stars, the enumerator of the earth and of what is therin, and the measurer of the earth; and the heart of Ra wich cometh forth in the form of the god Thoth; lord of books; lord of divine words and the scribe of the gods.

    The name Tehuti was derived from the oldest name of the Ibis (tehu). The ending of "ti" indicates the idea that the king called Tehuti possesed the qualities and attributes of the ibis.



    There's two or three reasons for the baboon shape. First of all, like the Greek god Hermes (with whom he became identified), Thoth is a trickster. Baboons are clever animals. So that fits. Also, strangely enough, many bands of baboons line up facing east before sunrise and howl the sun up. The Egyptians worshiped the sun as Re, the King of the Gods and source of all life, so they thought the baboons were doing the same thing. Finally, some scholars guess that the Egyptians saw a "baboon in the moon" instead of a man's face, and Thoth is a moon-god.


    Hermetic comes from the Greek god of writing Hermes. Who was also a syncretic combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth.


    Hermes Trismegistus. The origin of the description Trismegistus or "thrice great" is unclear...


    The associations to Thoth-Hermes could partially explain why some later Greek scholars linked Hermes Trismegistus to a hypothetical historical figure, given the numerous deifications.

    There were several great philosophers and writers in Kemet.... All of whom would have contributed to and paid homage to Tehuti's body of work.....

    Amenemope (ca. 1100 BCE) the son of Kanakht (Kanacht) is the ostensible author of the Instruction of Amenemope, an Egyptian wisdom text written in the Ramesside Period.

    Which is widely regarded as one of the masterpieces of ancient near-eastern wisdom literature and has been of particular interest to modern scholars because of its relationship to the biblical Book of Proverbs


    Amenhotep, son of Hapu, was an architect, a priest, a scribe, and a public official, who held a number of offices under Amenhotep III.

    He is said to have been born at the end of Thutmose III's reign, in the town of Athribis (modern Banha in the north of Cairo). His father was Hapu, and his mother Itu.[1] He was a priest and a Scribe of Recruits (organizing the labour and supplying the manpower for the Pharaoh's projects, both civilian and military).

    One myth relating to Tehuti:

    Shu, the son of the sun god, Ra, reigned as king of Egypt for many years. When his daughter Nut fell in love with the god Geb, Shu was wildly jealous. To keep the lovers far apart, he turned Nut into the sky and Geb into the earth. Then he cursed Nut with barrenness, proclaiming that there were no months of the year in which she could give birth.

    Thoth took pity on Nut and Geb. He challenged the reigning gods to a game of dice and soundly beat them all. As his prize he asked the gods to give him five days in addition to those that already existed. Thoth in turn presented the five extra days to the sky goddess, Nut. Because these five extra days did not belong to any particular month, they did not fall under Shu's curse. Thus, the goddess was able to use them to produce five children, including Osiris and Isis.

    Prior to Thoth's gift, each of the twelve months of the Egyptian calendar had 30 days, resulting in a 360-day year. Thoth's act of kindness reconciled the Egyptian calendar with the earth's actual 365-day cycle.

    Creation myths changed over the course of Egyptian history.

    Did the Egyptians ever come to a scientific conclusion as to how the universe and sentient beings came into existence or was it strictly changing myths with the times and cultural background?

    I know Djehuti hit on a lot of points with the principles and the vision of poimandres was attributed to him, I think. Is there any record of that being widely accepted or wht was the deal with that?

    Reality is myth, math, and metaphor. It is a consciousness computer experiment in time and illusion created by thought consciousness. The name Thoth means 'Thought' and 'Time'. Thoth was the master architect who created the blueprint of our reality based on the patterns of sacred geometry.

    It is here, in the duality - duat - underworld - chaos - void - place of creation 'outside the box' of our experience - reflected in gods and goddesses, the landscapes of Egypt including the pyramids and temples - that we experience until we evolve in the alchemy of time and consciousness......

    Thoth's Chamber



    Thoth created a grid program of experience - electromagnetic in nature to allow for the bipolar aspects of linear time and illusion. Thoth constructed a pyramidal shaped vehicle which personifies the nature of reality. He placed half above - "As is Above" in the nonphysical and half below "As is Below" thus creating the sands of time - the hourglass - the X Box - at the center of the planet where it all began and will all evolve at Zero Point a time or place where all comes into balance.


    Thoth was the 'god of the equilibrium' and considered depictions of him as the 'Master of the Balance' to indicate that he was associated with the precession of the equinoxes - a time when the day and the night were balanced.


    Egyptian religion was primarily monotheistic where all the gods and goddesses were aspects of the God Ra, similar to the Trinity in Christianity and devas in Hinduism. In this view, Thoth would be the aspect of Ra which the Egyptian mind would relate to the heart and tongue. The Egyptians credited him as the author of all works of science, religion, philosophy, and magic. ......


    This is the reason for the big shake-up when Amenhotep IV transformed into Ahkanaten........

    And the quick change from Tutankhaten to Tutankhamun

    Good thread Bambu. Much respect. what you mention here in this thread is all true & well said, but is only the very very beginning... :)
    In silence there must be movement, and in motion, there must be silence.
    Small movement is better than big,
    No movement is better than small.
    Silence is the Mother of all movement.
    In Movement you should be like a Dragon or a Tiger.
    In Non-Movement you should be like a Buddha.

    There were at least three separate cosmogenies in Egyptian mythology, corresponding to at least two separate groups of worshippers.


    The Ennead, in which Atum arose from the primordial waters (Neith), and masturbated to relieve his loneliness. His semen and breath became Tefnut (moisture) and Shu (dryness), respectively. From Shu and Tefnut, were born Geb (earth), and Nut (sky), who were born in a state of permanent copulation. Shu separated them, and their children were Ausare (Osiris; death), Set (desert), Aset (Isis; life), and Nebet Het (Nephthys; fertile land). Osiris and Isis were a couple, as were Nepthys and Set.



    The Ogdoad, in which Ra arose, either in an egg, or a blue lotus, as a result of the creative interaction between the primordial forces of Nu/Naunet (water), Amun/Amunet (air), Kuk/Kauket (darkness), and Huh/Hauhet (eternity). Ra then created Hathor, his wife, with whom they had a son, Hor (Horus; in the form known as Horus the Elder), who was married to Isis. This cosmogeny also includes Anupu (Anubis) as lord of the dead, amongst others.


    Over time, the rival groups gradually merged, Ra and Amun were identified as the same god, making Amun's mysterious creation actually due to the Ogdoad, and Ra having the children Shu and Tefnut, etc. In consequence, Anubis was identified as a son of Osiris, as was Horus. Amun's role was later thought much greater, and for a time, he became chief god, although he eventually became considered a manifestation of Ra.


    Jebel Barkal conceptualized in Egyptian art: Here Ramses II is shown making offerings to the god “Amun of Karnak,” seated inside the mountain; the pinnacle is rendered as a giant uraeus springing from the god’s throne.

    For a time, Ra and Horus were identified as one another, and when the Aten monotheism was introduced, it was Ra-Horus who was thought of as the Aten, and the consequent cosmogony this inspired. Later, Osiris' cult became more popular, and he became the main god, being identified as a form of Ptah. Eventually, all the gods were thought of as aspects of Osiris, Isis, Horus, or Set (who was by now a villain), indeed, Horus and Osiris had started to become thought of as the same god. Ptah eventually was identified as Osiris.
