9781451004427: The Realms of the Egyptian Dead According to the Belief of the Ancient Egyptians (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Realms of the Egyptian Dead According to the Belief of the Ancient Egyptians

In any attempt to form some concept of the world and human life, the question which has most keenly exercised both the peoples of antiquity and those of to-day is always the same: whence are the universe and its inhabitants, and whither does it all tend? In the following pages we shall consider the ideas developed in the Nile Valley respecting the issue of all things, and especially concerning the death of man, and that other world to which after death he hoped or feared to go.

It must, in the first place, be noted that in Egyptian texts no indications of the existence of any myth predicting the final destruction of the world have hitherto been found. Whether no such myth existed and men in the Nile Valley were unable to imagine that this best of all worlds should one day no longer be, or whether the absence of such indications is the result of chance cannot now be decided.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Realms of the Egyptian Dead According to the Belief of the Ancient Egyptians According to the text, this deluge which covered the trees and drove the Sun-god to the mountains came up from beneath, as the Egyptians supposed to be the case with the Nile ?ood. A similar story was probably at the source of the Platonic dialogue Timaeus, in which Egyptian authori ties are often quoted. There it is used as an argument to deny the ?ooding of the world and the destruction of its inhabitants - so far, at least, as Egypt is concerned. For, according to Plato, it was by similar ?oods in other lands that towns perished, and only the herdsmen were saved in Egypt, however, neither then nor at any other time did water ?ow down from above upon the fields; it came up from below, and hence it was that in Egypt were preserved the memorials of ancient times.
