KHE-T NTR/THE SACRED BOOKS /NUN AND THE 4 CREATION ACCOUNTS

THE SUPREME AKHU OF THE SACRED ORDER OF BLACK LIGHT / NETJER NEB AKHU ZEP TEPI 

THERE ARE 4 DIFFERENT KEMETIC CREATION ACCOUNTS ,BUT ALL OF THEM SHARE THAT THE DARKNESS OF NUN IS THE BEGINNING POINT TO US BEINGS OF LIGHT ,THE DARKNESS WAS HERE FIRST ,THESE ARE THE 4 KEMETIC CREATION ACCOUNTS,

THE HELIOPOLIS CREATION ACCOUNT OF KMT
n Heliopolis, the creation was attributed to Atum, a deity closely associated with Ra, who was said to have existed in the waters of Nu as an inert potential being. Atum was a self-engendered god, the source of all the elements and forces in the world, and the Heliopolitan myth described the process by which he "evolved" from a single being into this multiplicity of elements. The process began when Atum appeared on the mound and gave rise the air god Shu and his sister Tefnut, whose existence represented the emergence of an empty space amid the waters.To explain how Atum did this, the myth uses the metaphor of masturbation, with the hand he used in this act representing the female principle inherent within him He is also said to have to have "sneezed" and"spat" to produce Shu and Tefnut, a metaphor that arose from puns on their names. Next, Shu and Tefnut coupled to produce the earth god Geb and the sky goddess Nut, who defined the limits of the world. Geb and Nut in turn gave rise to four children, who represented the forces of life: Osiris, god of fertility and regeneration; Isis, goddess of motherhood; Set, the god of male sexuality; andNephthys, the female complement of Set. The myth thus represented the process by which life was made possible. These nine gods were grouped together theologically as the Ennead, but the eight lesser gods, and all other things in the world, were ultimately seen as extensions of Atum.

THE HERMOPOLIS CREATION ACCOUNT OF KMT
The creation myth promulgated in the city of Hermopolis focused on the nature of the universe before the creation of the world. The inherent qualities of the primeval waters were represented by a set of eight gods, called the Ogdoad. The god Nu and his female counterpart Naunet represented the inert primeval water itself; Huh and his counterpart Hauhet represented the water's infinite extent; Kuk and Kauket personified the darkness present within it; and Amun and Amaunet represented its hidden and unknowable nature, in contrast to the tangible world of the living. The primeval waters were themselves part of the creation process, therefore, the deities representing them could be seen as creator gods. According to the myth, the eight gods were originally divided into male and female groups. They were symbolically depicted as aquatic creatures because they dwelt within the water: the males were represented as frogs, and the females were represented as snakes. These two groups eventually converged, resulting in a great upheaval, which produced the pyramidal mound. From it emerged the sun, which rose into the sky to light the world


THE MEMPHITE CREATION ACCOUNT OF KMT 
The Memphite version of creation centered on Ptah, who was the patron god of craftsmen. As such, he represented the craftsman's ability to envision a finished product, and shape raw materials to create that product. The Memphite theology said that Ptah created the world in a similar way. This, unlike the other Egyptian creations, was not a physical but an intellectual creation by the Word and the Mind of God. The ideas developed within Ptah's heart (regarded by the Egyptians as the seat of human thought) were given form when he named them with his tongue. By speaking these names, Ptah produced the gods and all other things


THE THEBAN CREATION ACCOUNT OF KMT 

Theban theology claimed that Amun was not merely a member of the Ogdoad, but the hidden force behind all things. There is a conflation of all notions of creation into the personality of Amun, a synthesis which emphasizes how Amun transcends all other deities in his being “beyond the sky and deeper than the underworld”. One Theban myth likened Amun's act of creation to the call of a goose, which broke the stillness of the primeval waters and caused the Ogdoad and Ennead to form.Amun was separate from the world, his true nature was concealed even from the other gods. At the same time, however, because he was the ultimate source of creation, all the gods, including the other creators, were in fact merely aspects of Amun. Amun eventually became the supreme god of the Egyptian pantheon because of this belief.
Amun is synonymous with the growth of Thebes as a major religious capital. But it is the columned halls, obelisks, colossal statues, wall-reliefs and hieroglyphic inscriptions of the Theban temples that we look to gain the true impression of Amun’s superiority. Thebes was thought of as the location of the emergence of the primeval mound at the beginning of time.

1039b. in which Geb bathed his limbs,
1039c. so that hearts were in the following of fear and hearts were in the following of terror.
1040a. N. was born in Nun,
1040b. when the sky had not yet come into being, when the earth had not yet come into being,
1040c. when the two supports (of the sky) had not yet come into being, when unrest had not yet come into being,
1040d. when fear had not yet come into being, which came into being on account of the eye of Horus.
1041a. N. is one of that great corporation who was born before (all others) in Heliopolis,


Nonexistent precreation, or the omnipresence of an everlasting, pre-existent, virtual state-of-no-state, is the first concept of traditional Egyptian theology, as evidenced by its founding role in the Heliopolitan, Memphite, Hermopolitan, Osirian & Theban branches of Egyptian thought. Each branch is an approach of "He-whose-Name-is-Hidden" characterized by a single principle 



There is something before every thing, before the order, the architecture and the life of creation, manifested as a transformation or change from a nonexistent, virtual state to an existing actuality. The virtual state is not actual, but confirms possibility, latency and potentiality. As a potency anterior to creation, it was conceived as a nonexistent object, before "form", i.e. anterior to space and time, and before the creation of sky, Earth, horizon and their "natural" dynamics. In the Pyramid Texts, Pharaoh is said to originate from beyond the natural order, beyond creation of space (Shu) and moist (Tefnut), sky (Nut) and Earth (Geb), life and order.



YES SO THE INITIATES OF THE SACRED ORDER OF BLACK LIGHT KNOWS THAT THE BIRTH OF US WAS BEFORE EARTH ,

UTTERANCE 486,THE PYRAMID TEXT 
I was born in Nun before the sky existed, before the Earth existed, before that which was to be made form existed, before turmoil existed, before that fear which arose on account of the Eye of Horus existed."

Precreation was imagined as a limitless, everlasting water (sea or ocean), called by various names : "nw" (Nu), "nww" (Nuu), "nnw" (Nenu), "nnww" (Nenuu), "nnnww" (Nenenuu), "niw" (Niu). In the Pyramid Texts, "nnw(w)" (Nenu) is the most frequent form (22/30). The core sound, the biliteral "nw", was vocalized in Coptic as "Noyn" or "Noun" ("Y" = "U"), from which the English "Nun" has been derived. Two distinct forms of the name exist, namely, on the one hand, "nw", "nww" and "niw", and on the other hand, "nnw", "nnww" and "nnnww".

THE MALE PERSONIFICATION OF NU -the male personification of "nw", as "niw" : in two cases Nun is personalized : Pharaoh is called to "succeed to the thrones of Niu" (§ 2) and in § 9, Niu is paired with his female consort "nnt", "Nenet" (this was vocalized by the Greeks as "Nauni" or "Naunet"). As in § 26 "nnt" and "nw" are coupled, we may safely translate "nw" and "niw" both as "Nun" 

THE FEMALE PERSONIFICATION OF NU -the female personification of "nw", the so-called "lower sky", as in "nt" and "nnt" : the primeval waters are also present below the Earth. These waters are in the deep of the netherworld. Situated beyond the Duat, which is still part of creation, they nevertheless are the source of the Nile on Earth. This deep sky has been translated as "lower sky", and appears as the feminine counterpart of "nw", n(w)t, mostly written as "nt", with the determinatives for place (O49) and the reversed vault of the sky (A40), suggestive of the "lower" counterpart of the "normal" upper (diurnal) sky


THE FEMALE ASPECT IS MENTIONED IN 4 CASES AND IS TRANSLATED AS THE LOWER SKY 
The lower sky as "nt" is mentioned in four Utterances, and in all cases it is translated as "lower sky" :

Utterance 214 - § 149 :
"You demand that You descend to the lower sky and You shall descend ..."
Utterance 570 - §§ 1456 - 1458 (3 identical clauses) :
"I live beside You, (O) You gods of the lower sky, the Imperishable Stars ..."
Utterance 571 - §§ 1466 - 1467 :
"The King's mother was pregnant with him, (even he) who was in the lower sky, the King was fashioned by his father Atum before the sky existed, before Earth existed, before men existed, before the gods were born, before death existed."
Utterance 574 - § 1485 :
"Hail to You, You tree which encloses the god, under which the gods of the lower sky stand, the end of which is cooked, the inside of which is burnt, which sends out the pains of death : may You gather together those who are in Nun, may You assemble those who are in the celestial expanses.

A second spelling also appears ; "nnt" starts with two rushes of shoots (M22) or "nn", followed by the phonetical complement "n" and "t", also ending with the determinatives for village, town (O49) and the reversed vault of the sky (A40). In a few instances, O49 is dropped. The context allows us to translate "nnt" in two cases as "Naunet", the female consort of Nun.

The lower sky as "nnt" is mentioned in five Utterances, and in two the context (coupling) allows us to translate as "Naunet"  :

Utterance 218 - § 166 :
"This King comes indeed, importuning the Nine, an imperishable spirit, and those who are in the lower sky belong to this King."Utterance 222 - § 207 :
"Cast off your impurity for Atum in Heliopolis and {descend} together with him. Judge the needs of the lower sky and succeed to the thrones of Nun."Utterance 301 - § 446 :
"To say : You have your offering-bread, O Nun together with Naunet, You two {protectors} of the gods, who protect the gods with your shadow."Utterance §§ 1345 - 1346 :
 "He goes aboard the bark like Re at the banks of the Winding Waterway, this King rows in the Bark of Lightning, he navigates therein to the Field of the Lower Skies at this south of the Field of Rushes."Utterance 606 - § 1691 :
They set Shu for You on your East side and Tefnut on your West side, Nun on your South side and Naunet on your North side. They guide You to these fair and pure The state-of-no-state is not identical with nothingness, the void. For nothingness is absolute zero, as opposed to "virtual" zero, i.e. the virtual (empty) set V = {Ø}. Z = 0 does not define anything, and hence refers to nothing. Virtual nonexistence holds the possibility of a futureordered series of elements, i.e. the idea of all possibility, but absolute zero precludes existence as well as becoming. Precreation is not the absolute zero of nothing, but the virtual oneness of a monadic, autogenous potential to complete creation within the milieu of the limitless waters.seats of theirs which they made for Re when they set him upon their thrones."

ZEP TEPI ,WHAT IS IT ? 


In precreation, Nun and Atum communicate, but without ever changing their nature. Everlastingness cannot be other than stable, enduring and unchanging. Although Atum is, given Nun, presupposed (otherwise he would not be autogenous), his creation is, in a fundamental way, influenced by Nun. Firstly, because the parameters of creation include disorder (Seth, Apophis) and secondly, because Re regenerates when uniting with the corpseof Osiris (linked with Nun - cf. the 6th Hour of the Amduat). To enter the "zep tepi" and its regenerative powers, the deepest, darkest and deadliest point of creation is sought. A direct but balanced confrontation between divine order and disorder (symmetry and symmetry-break) is present in Egyptian thought. Two examples.

A third major concept besides Nun and Atum is introduced : the "zep tepi" or "first occurrence". It stand between the moment of Atum's self-creation and the emergence of actuality (as Earth, sky and horizon).
Atum creates Atum on the first moment of the "zep tepi" ("zp tpi"), the "first occurrence" or "first time". Before that moment, no order, light or life preexisted. Precreation and Nun coincided. But on this instance, the patterns of existence were established and enacted. Creation was thus initiated by the distinction between the surrounding waters (Nun) and the primordial seed. Atum creates himself ex nihilo. He is not a transformation of a previous state. Nun is not changed because of Atum. Before this monad self-created, lifeless nonexistence prevailed. With this monad, nonexistence is divided into the chaotic waters and the seed of order, light and life. Atum represents the spontaneous potential of precreation to manifest creation, and because Atum self-creates, there is nothing anterior to this monad, except the liquid space of disorder and darkness.
