Watch Her Flow

Thanks Bros Sek and Sun of RaSekhemu said:For the sake of arguement let's say that Neter is another name for Nebertcher, or that Nebertcher is another name for Neter. When Ashby uses the word Neter for the primal creator, this becomes confusing, because what this seems to suggest is that the word Neteru or Neters means more than one God, when in fact it does not.
He's correct in stating that Ra emerged from the waters of Chaos, Nun and that from Ra, the ennead emerged. In this aspect, Ra constitutes a doorway so to speak for the neteru.
You may note that Ra emerging from the waters of chaos, by means of the the God Nefertum, can be related to the components that produce Atomic energy, namely Plutonium(water) Uranium(earth) and fire(The sun)
My understanding is much clearer now. I'll dispense with the urge to throw Ashby out the window (for now).
