11. In the system of temples, all divinities are related

• The column recreated the mound of creation; as one proceeds through the temple, the ceiling lowers and the floor rises; the Holiest of Holy is the highest point in the temple
• Pylons symbolize the duality of life; if you go through the doors, you are seeking oneness

12. The Four Neterian Principles
• Shetaut Neter can be condensed into four Great Truths that act as formulas to understand the teachings and the practice of the disciplines

• Everything must be continually worked
• Set is on the boat fighting the serpent of chaos

14. Khemn is the negative aspect of blackness that refers to darkness that shrouds the mind and blocks intelligence. Asar is the positive aspect of blackness, which speaks to the black consciousness and the blackness of the primeval ocean

What impressed me most in this presentation was the discussion of the Sphinx and the discussion of the Four Great Truths. To satisfy the question about how ancient African religion is, all one has to do is consider Herumakhet. My impressions regarding the Great Truths have to do with feedback from a chat discussion where I was instructed to remove the ignorance about the cosmic forces in order to master them.
There is extensive knowledge about the Sphinx and Neterian philosophy. The current cycle or year began at approximately 10,858. Somewhere around the year 36,766 BCE according to Manetho, the Creator Ra, ruled the earth in person from his throne in the Ancient Egyptian city of Anu.
The Sphinx on earth can be viewed as a counterpart to the Sphinx in the heavens (Astral Plane). They complement each other and form two halves of the akher-akhet symbol, but turned facing each other looking at the sun.
Since seeking to remove the ignorance about the cosmic forces, it now seems absurd to give Set the opportunity to figure out a way to develop or utilize a formula to facilitate Nehast. Such actions and attitudes can only exacerbate negative arui already associated with the personality.
It has always been important to me to understand how components of a formula operate as independent and dependent factors i.e., the interaction and outcomes of the interactions. I am impressed by the fact that there is a shedy discipline for each Great Truth. I see this as a way to repress the fetters and inflictions of Set and enhance positive ariu.
