In its name as the First Blessing,
my signature is the Key to the Mysteries,
even the mystery of your origins.
Two Phoenix depicted in a panel of the "Book of Coming Forth..." in the Papyrus of Ani. Notice the two feather "tufts" which come off the back of their heads and the feather "ruffles" which descend from their breasts. These two artistic flourishes turn an ordinary heron into the Phoenix. The two feathered tufts and the ruffles were used as symbolic motifs by the ancients who founded Egypt. They used the motifs to denote divine powers and to unify the legends of the ancient gods and the stories of the Zep Tepi, Egypt's first time, the beginning of civilization as we know it in the 20th century.
These motifs are the keys to unlocking a great many mysteries of the past. Throughout the entire Egyptian literature, these two motifs are used in highly abstract, symbolic ways, elements added to another symbol, pictograph, or story denoting...something. But on the Phoenix these elements are depicted as its natural endowment, showing clearly that these two motifs define the parts of a whole, a story in which the Mystery of the Phoenix is the central and final secret...the real story. With these keys and with the sign and seal of the Phoenix's signature as the guide, the veil of mystery can be lifted.
