Say Aah for Apep

Apep, Demonic Water Snake of Chaos and Enemy of Ra
by Caroline Seawright, 2004

Apep (Apepi, Aapep, Apophis, Apopis) was a demon of the underworld, in the form of a giant water snake. It was believed that he was created when Nit spat into the primeval waters of Nun. An alternate belief from Iunyt (Esna) was that the umbilical cord of Nit’s son (eg. Ra), who she bore in the waters of chaos, turned into Apep after it was cut. He was the enemy of the sun god, trying to stop him as he travelled on his barque through the underworld each night. He was so powerful that little could defeat him, and even then, he was back again the following evening to threaten Ra. He was a demon outside of ma’at, the opposite of order, a demon of darkness and chaos. Continue reading

Apep over Apophis

Apep (Apophis)
By J. Hill, 2010

Apep (Apophis) was the ancient Egyptian spirit of evil, darkness and destruction who threatened to destroy the sun god Ra as he travelled though the underworld (or sky) at night.

Originally Set and Mehen (the serpent headed man) were given the job of defending Ra and his solar barge. They would cut a hole in the belly of the snake to allow Ra to escape his clutches. If they failed, the world would be plunged into darkness. However, in later periods Apep was sometimes equated with Set who was after all a god of chaos. In this case a variety of major and minor gods and goddesses (including [Auset] (Isis), Neith, Serket (Selket), Geb, Aker and the followers of [Heru] (Horus) protected Ra from this all consuming evil. The dead themselves (in the form of the god Shu) could also fight Apep to help maintain ma’at (order). Continue reading

11. Da’ath – the Abyss

AbyssDaath and the Abyss
From [see source]

“Nothingness lies coiled in the heart of being – like a worm” – Sartre

In modern Kabbalah there is a well developed notion of an Abyss between the three supernal sephiroth of Kether, Chokhmah, and Binah, and the seven lower sephiroth. When one looks at the progress of the Lightning Flash down the Tree of Life, then one finds that it follows the path structure connecting sephiroth except when it makes the jump from Binah to Chesed, thus reinforcing this idea of a “gap” or “gulf” which has to be crossed.

Zohar – 10. Nahema

Nahema - barbies_14 - akNaamah (demon)

Naamah or Na’amah (Hebrew: נעמה‎) is a legendary demonic creature, the mother of divination. How she became a demon is unclear.

Etymology

Naamah comes from Hebrew: נעם‎ naim and means pleasant.

The meaning of her name is argued among Hebrew scholars; it refers either to her virtuous nature (“pleasing” to God (YHVH)) or to a penchant for idolatry (singing “pleasant” songs to pagan idols). Continue reading

KMT – Set and Typhon

Heru and SetSet (Seth) and the Serpent
Esoteric Notes
By B. Cornet, 2001

The Principle of Wisdom
Manly Hall, 1977

“The serpent is true to the principle of wisdom, for it tempts man to the knowledge of himself. Therefore the knowledge of self resulted from man’s disobedience to the Demiurgus, Jehovah. How the serpent came to be in the garden of the Lord after God had declared that all creatures which He had made during the six days of creation were good has not been satisfactorily answered by the interpreters of Scripture. The tree that grows in the midst of the garden is the spinal fire; the knowledge of the use of that spinal fire is the gift of the great serpent. Notwithstanding statements to the contrary, the serpent is the symbol of prototype of the Universal Savior, who redeems the worlds by Continue reading
