The Natural Genesis
THE 149th Chapter ot the Ritual suffices of itself to demonstratethe astronomical nature of the Egyptian mythology after it hadpassed out of the first elementary phase. This chapter, said to bethe most profoundly mystical and absolutely incomperable is the“Book of instructing the Spirit, the Delight of the Sun, who prevails asAtum, and is rendered great as Osiris.” “There is not known anyother such, at any time, or anywhere. No men hath spoken it; no eyehath perceived it; no ear hath heard it; not any other face hath lookedin it to learn it. Do not thou multiply its chapters,1 or do not thou letany face except thy own see it and eat thy heart, doing it in the midst ofthe Hall of Clothes (the Judgement Hall). It is put forth by the Godwith all his power. It is a true Secret; when it is known all theproviders in all places supply the dead (Spirit) in Hades; food is givento his soul on earth; he is made to live for ever; nothing prevailsagainst him.”2 The contents of this chapter show that the secret ofits revelation, considered to be of such supreme importance in theeschatological phase, belonged to the Gnosis of the celestial allegory,the earliest formation of the starry heavens, and a knowledge of theSeven Cows and the Bull; the Four mystical Eyes; the Four paddles ofthe boat of the Sun, which are arranged according to the four cornersor points of the compass.
