  Serious Egyptian Revival

Self Realization Posted by <Xnoubis> on Wednesday January 17, @06:25AM
from the netjer-regions dept.

Here's the Kemetic Orthodox Faith, an amazing attempt to restore the spiritual tradition of ancient Egypt. Check out their great “Names of Netjer Glossary”. But what's with their “not a mere Mystery School – we're a religion!” stuff?

**Re: Serious Egyptian Revival**

I must say I am displeased with the term 'serious' or 'great' when referred to this organization. It seems to me like a 'sock-puppet faith' of a small group who gather together on weekends to hobby a mysterious interest.

And is obviously apparent that they know - in regard to ther glossary- very little if anything about the Egyptian esoterics. So I would agree- on the folly of their so-called title of a religion!

But even worse, that they have even come up erroneous with their glossary- and if this is their presentation to the outside world- then they'd best dissapear the same way they came in! As for example, their use of NUT as 'sky' is blatantly wrong considering her root word 'enen', innertness, which is carried on to present-day Arabic. And this is only the beginning of their mistranslations that we are left to wonder just how deeply these so-called clergy have delved into the ancient traditions- as they seem to know very little- and having a most limited resource for their knowledge- it seems as though a spoof.

Methinks they need a bit more determination to even get to that place in which many great occultists have risen to many years in the past. Thelemites are a much greater source of this old art.

Hmm. That could be. Egyptology isn't my strong suit. I do think they do a good job with their presentation, and I thought that the glossary was interesting because it was filled with info I hadn't heard before. But maybe instead I should have inferred that the info was wrong!\\

I'd be interested in hearing other educated opinions about their site.\\

Your final assertion is strange. Thelemic and Golden Dawn Egyptology largely relies on obsolete sources, and is enormously inaccurate by modern standards. How is it superior?\\
\\
I also do not see what error you purport to find in their definition of Nut. This is a mythological dictionary and does not present itself as an etymological reference.\\

\\
Thelemites tend to be more precise when assembling pieces together. Also, you can't put one over on a Thelemite as easily as say, a fragile mind (oh would you know?!).\\
\\
>I also do not see what error\\
\\
They claim the meaning of 'sky'. But she only bears a title as 'Coverer of the Sky'. Nonetheless, how could one be a coverer of the thing that one is supposed to be?! Ha! Rather jolly mistake mate!\\

I bow to your example of precise thinking.\\

\\
That's easy. Anything that includes layers qualifies. A sedimentary deposit covering another deposit is no less a sedimentary deposit. Are you trying to tell us that the atmosphere is not also Planet Earth?\\
\\

Re: Serious Egyptian Revival\\

No. The atmosphere is definately not a planet. Nor the atmosphere a dust cloud.\\
\\
Nu is a deity, not a positive material personification. Calling it a religion and renouncing any thing esoteric about it would be a double-standard.\\
\\
There is nothing in NUT's hieroglyph that would suggest a sky; PET is actually the accepted word for sky. ok?\\
\\

I'm not arguing that Nuit is the sky. I'm simply pointing out that your earlier statement about something not being to be the covering and the covered at one and the same time is false. The atmosphere certainly is the planet, as any astronomer will tell you, and that core which is completely covered up – it's the planet too. ok?\\

You have yet to prove this.\\
\\

\\
You are speaking for all?\\
\\

\\
or just different. why should they cover another layer? Are they not decent?\\
\\
>it's the planet too. ok?\\
\\
No, I'm not satisfied with your reasoning.\\
I don't see the point you're trying to make.\\
