In ancient times, Greek scholars journeyed to Egypt for advanced studies in the famed Egyptian “Mystery Schools” where information or knowledge was presented in the form of “initiate theater” or “mystery plays”.
SUTEKH, a present day mystery play, in the form of a dramatic short film, depicts the tragic fall, which initiates the first “XEPER” or “coming into being process” – resulting in the eventual transformation of a chaotic Ancient Egyptian Neter of deity known as Sutekh, or “Suti” or “Set”.
The action takes place in the celestial courtroom or The Hall of MA’AT, Goddess of Truth, Justice, and Reciprocity, where Sutekh is on trial for the murder of his brother, Ausir or Osiris. It is “noted” in the ancient Akashic Record that Sutekh did this out of jealousy. Yet, Sutekh insists he did the deed out of “love” for his beautiful wife, Nebt-Het or Nepthys, as well as, for his love of the exisiting realm, i.e., the Celestial Order of 42 Neters.
All the 42 Neters or deities are present at this event – the first recorded trial held eons before there ever even an Earth, let alone beings known as people . . . .
In the vignette drama SUTEKH, the audience discovers the necessity of the trial and the reason for this particular deity: Sutekh’s fall from grace. It was always Amun-Re’s master plan and perfect design to incubate an “alternative” point of view. . . and existence. He utilizes Sutekh’s innate nature: a “mélange” of strength, confidence, and conflict. And, by so doing, allows him to create what is destined to become the “alternative” – the opposite side of “free will”.
This is destined to become the core template for establishing the manifesting of a “new creation” – a species called “Mankind” or “Human Beings”.
Sutekh is perfectly poised to reflect qualities that WE “humans” possess. He will paint a picture of self-determination. He will embody the aspects of being a free, self-determined individual. His essence will resonate with and through-out the history of Mankind and thus, serve as a cornerstone to the myriad of civilizations, which, over time, will develop upon Earth.
