You know one of the things that has always amazed me about the Kemetic sages was their love of mathematics and the need for everything to make sense. Anyone who has studied the Kemetic philosophy and their metaphysics will know exactly what I am talking about.
For instance, did you know that the Kemetic Eye of Hru is composed of the following fractions?
Did you know that each of these fractions that make up a fraction of the Eye corresponds to a physical aspect of the human being from the smallest to largest? (Ok. Math Review. The top number of the fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number the denominator. The larger the denominator the smaller the fraction). Therefore, from least to greatest:
- 1/64 corresponds to the Sense of Touch symbolized by one leg standing on the ground.
- 1/32 corresponds to the Sense of Taste the curve tail symbolizes a stalk of grain thus referring to taste.
- 1/16 corresponds to the Sense of Hearing symbolized by an arrow pointing to the ear.
- 1/8 corresponds to Thought symbolized by raised eyebrow.
- 1/4 corresponds to the Sense of Sight symbolized by the pupil.
- 1/2 corresponds to the Sense of Smell symbolized by the nose.
This means that what we refer to as reality is based largely upon our Sense of Smell (1/2) and Sight (1/4) than upon what we actually physically experience (1/64). What we imagine and smell has a greater influence then what we physically experience, hence the Universe is Mental. The ability to smell and see are actually the oldest functions of the human brain. In other words, this reveals from the Kemetic perspective the evolution of consciousness. Pretty amazing stuff right?
Did you know that when you add all of these fractions together the sum is 63/64? Pretty cool.
But, what is the missing 1/64 fraction to make it a 64/64 = 1 whole?
Those familiar with the Kemetic Story of Osar know that the missing 1/64 is intuition. According to the Story of Osar, Hru was unable to defeat his evil uncle Set because Set had managed to gouge Hru’s eye out. In desperation Hru fled to find Djahuti who repaired his eye perfectly. After which, our hero was able to defeat Set on the battlefield but he was unable to fully reclaim to crown until his father Osar spoke on his behalf and the tribunal ruled in Hru’s favor.
The missing 1/64 represents all of the spirits, which also contribute to the evolution of human consciousness.
The Eye of Hru also known as the Left Eye of Ra or Lunar Eye of Ra, corresponds to the intuitive and spiritual aspect of our being, hence insight.
What this means is that we all must go through some ordeal (fight with Set symbolized as a journey through TASETT), which will lead us to brush shoulders with all of the spirits (in KAMTA), so that we can gain wisdom.
If we refuse to gain wisdom from our spirits, we will never get a holistic view of life or achieve Maa (Balance, Truth, Order, Justice, Righteousness, etc.) in our life. We will always be dominated by the Right Eye of Ra or Solar Eye, which corresponds to the literal and material aspect of life.
Therefore, it is important that we never forget our spirits because they help us to gain insight or to see the whole picture. Remember, they do not have a physical body so they can see things that we are not able to physically see, which gives us a better understanding of who we are.
