"This place was regarded as a narrow corridor that sometimes ended in a gallery. I think it´s no coincidence that images of these corridors and galleries have a certain resemblance to the corridors and Grand Gallery in the Great Pyramid at Giza. In my opinion, the monuments at Giza were built not as graves for the pharoahs but as a place to prepare for the soul´s journey after death to the Duat. Somewhat like a huge three-dimensional game where the initiates submitted themselves to tests -- maybe in total darkness, maybe for many days, and with powerful alterations in mental states -- to raise and strengthen their consciousness and to prepare themselves for the challenges of death so that when death came, the individual would not become confused and get lost in the Duat, in the life after this one," says Hancock.
What might most characterize the Duat is duality
-- everything is double. "As above, so below," as the ancient hermetic
texts put it. If we are to understand the monuments of ancient Egypt, we
have to think in dualistic terms first. We have to think in terms of heaven
and earth exactly the way the ancient Egyptians did, Hancock maintains.
[What is below is similar to what is above, and what is above is similar to what is below, in order to ensure the perpetuation of the miracles of the Unique Thing]
- Classical latin translation from the text of the Emerald Tablets of Hermes Trismegistus
The body of Osiris
safely installed in the "House of Sokar", and the spiritualized form of
Osiris was freed to depart to the sky and established the 'Duat'.
The land of Sokar occupies the Fifth Division of the Duat, and the center
of the Fifth Division is called Rostau "Underworld"/"Netherworld"
/ The cosmic 'world of the dead'. Has something to do
with some kind of a "stargate"
