1. The Kemetic term ‘uaa’ means meditation which is the practice of mental exercises and discipline to enable control over the mind, specifically to stop the vibrations of the mind.

The reality which is experienced by the human sense is not an Absolute reality. Therefore, you must strive to rise beyond your conditioned mind and sense in order to perceive reality as it truly is.
