    This conversation is one that some times appears, but really is never fully expounded upon.

    I am sure there is a thread dedicated to something similar to this, but hoping to isolate the similarities and differences within the writings of these two diaspora of scribing.

    1. First... the creation story similarities and differences:

    • Share how the stories writing within the canon of the "Bible" relate to the creation stories within the findings of Egyptian inscriptions.







    There are interesting and curious variables within each of these, but for comparison sake, just want to focus on how these are similar, and how these are different


    2. Second... character associations:

    • Show how certain characters within each diaspora are apparently similar, and apparently different.
    For example...

    Similar:

    "Yahshua" is claimed to have been born of a virgin mother
    "Horus" is claimed to have been born of a virgin mother

    Different:

    "Yahshua" supposedly had two fathers, "Joseph" and "Yah"
    "Horus" supposedly had one father, "Osiris", who was killed by his uncle "Seth", only to be reborn in order to copulate with "Isis" using a prosthetic phallic, and bring forth "Horus"​


    3. Third... moral constructs, laws, wisdoms, etc

    There are supposedly 42 simplified laws within one diaspora, and 613 or so laws within another.
    Sayings and proverbs are sometimes relative to each other, even some obvious line for line reciting.

    What are some of the similarities within the morals, laws, and wisdom of each, and what are some of the differences within each?


    So it goes as follows...

    1. First... the creation story similarities and differences
    2. Second... character associations
    3. Third... moral constructs, laws, wisdoms, etc


    Share any of your findings for the above so that we can assess and check off the similarities and differences.

    Nobody willing to add anything?

    Interesting... oh well
    Thought there were are few on here that were able to share the comparisons between these.

    Guess this was an inaccurate presumption

    TREE OF LIFE


    Biblical Canon:

    This is really not a fair comparison, being that the Biblical canon doesn't offer much to assert a great deal about the "Tree of Life", but still enough to gather an idea.

    Gen 2:9
    And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    Gen 2:16
    And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

    Gen 3:22
    And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

    Gen 2:17
    But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

    • It affords that it is a tree in the midst of a garden, but only the chosen ones can eat from it, because someone ate from a forbidden tree that was pleasant to the sight.

    • But here is a little more to quench one's quest for uncovering this tree...

    Pro 3:13
    Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

    Pro 3:15
    She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

    Pro 3:16
    Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.

    Pro 3:17
    Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

    Pro 3:18
    She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

    Pro 11:30
    The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

    Pro 11:31
    Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.

    Pro 13:12
    Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.

    Pro 15:4
    A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

    Rev 22:2
    In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

    • With this laid out, notice the repetitive consistency in which the "tree of life" has a self-sufficient characteristic that one must maintain and keep pure from perversion.

    Wisdom, Consciousness, and Enlightenment... which cultivates and comes from this tree that continuously produces the fruits that are often mentioned as "gifts".

    So keep in mind these terms when we get into the "Egyptian" formulation of "Tree of Life".
    Mind you, this is a universal concept, which is not exclusively derived from any singular culture, but based on an observation and interpretation of their world and the environment that translates into stories and raised or lowered scribes.

    The civilization of the Maya have a tree that could also be viewed as a universal construct, but it is essentially their own interpretation of a cultural development history.

    May look at addressing this in another thread, but this is for a representation of how widespread "Trees" are, and no culture or civilization was barren of "trees".


    Egyptian Lore:

    upload_2015-3-14_11-16-9.png


    Sycamore, Tamarisk, and Acacia trees were used to represent these trees of life, and sanctified for ceremonies and rites.

    The plant Acacia Nilotica:

    A tree that grows abundantly along the Nile River and was glorified by the Egyptians.
    Acacia Nilotica contains Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT.​

    This is the same compound that is used in shamanic rituals in the Amazon with the drink Ayahuasca. The idea is, DMT can further ones experience on earth bring forth many healing qualities (physically and mentally).

    [​IMG]

    There are plants that are used in medicine that create stimuli which force open or close certain areas of the brain as well as adding elements into the bloodstream to enhance healing or eliminate and close off sensitive areas that communicate, what we call sensations of pain, to the brain.

    Now, for a bit of an esoteric look into why a tree is often used in the connection to life elements, as well as relative constructs of the ideologies manifested within a sacred world where only a few can enter.
