Hello Unknown,
I was wondering if you could elaborate on the 'Serpent and the Egg' deity?
I will share a picture with you from my private collection, it is copyrighted as all my pictures are but it seems to fit here as a visual for the Egyptian piece on 'page 8'.


"In the original Egyptian creation story we find a serpent and the primordial egg, which contained the " Bird of Light" . In Chapter 175 of the Book of the Dead we find the prophecy that when the world returns to its original chaos, the hidden aspect of the supreme god, Atum, will become the new serpent. There is a text I found in the "Coffin Texts" [ I.161 ff] which contains Atum's description of himself:

" I am Atum, the creator of the Eldest Gods,

I am he who gave birth to Shu,

I am that great he-she.

I am he who did what seemed good to him,

I took my space in the place of my will.

Mine is the space of those who move along

like those two serpentine circles" [ emphasis mine] "





Would you call this a match?......I.
