The False door and The existence of another realm

الصفحة الرئيسية

We always find in the ancient Egyptian tombs “the eternal house” which is known as “the False door” to the archeologists as they called it false door because of its shape, it looks like a door without an opening in order to deceive the thieves .In the fact, this idea is so naïve as it is not fitting with the artistic and engineering geniality that was existed in tombs and all the Egyptian monuments.

According to the ancient Egyptians, the false door represents an embodiment for the symmetrical idea in the tombs which is a theory assuming the existence of another realm and it is a reflected image from the universe in which we live besides when the man is born and then dies, he is transmitted between two realms .

The physicists have been shown on such hypothesis from tracking the light and they discovered that the universe is expanding through the speed of the light as well as the light is in a state of constant travel in all directions, but this travel stops in a certain point where the light is refracted and returned again in reverse as if it is hit by a mirror located on the edge of the universe.

From this physical information, the assumption that the limits of the universe are like a mirror came and there is another universe taking the shape of reflected image in the mirror from the universe in which we live, so the ancient Egyptian got the idea of symmetry “the adverse universes as reflected mirror “in the shape of the false door where we see that every side from the false door is a reflected image in the mirror from the other side.

But what is strongly considered that over such symmetry we can find a middle ground resembling the bridge located completely in the center as it is connecting between two worlds where the “Ka” ,the soul of the deceased rested and in front of it there is a table of offerings to receive the sacrifices from the living world.

The offerings are the means of connection between the realm of the living and the dead in ancient Egypt because of visiting the graves and the shrines of some saints during a certain astronomical events was considered the most important traditions which the ancient Egyptian cared to do throughout history until today. We can find in the popular legacy that strong caring to visit the graves of our beloved ones in addition to our families who were passed away and visiting the shrines of saints during certain occasions .the most characteristic thing which distinguish such visits is carrying the offerings that are known in our customs as “the visit for the tomb “besides the bread that was carried to the tomb is called as “the bread of the tomb”.

The offerings were represented the mean of activating the “AKH”, it is one of the nine bodies for the human as the radiated body could move between the worlds. The proof of what is said, found in the monuments of the king “Senusert I” who said at the time of building the temples and making offerings for “Uzir” for he was activating the “akh” which meant to build the bridge between the realm of the living and the dead.

The concept of offerings is not absolutely for feeding the spiritual body of the “Ka” as it doesn’t need to any material food, but the idea in offerings is “the participation” as the group visiting to the tombs and the shrines of the saints considered as an occasion in which the dead and the living were reunited as well as the wealthy visitor carried food with the intention to give it as a gift to the deceased ‘s soul “the gift is the title of love” besides this food was offered to the other poor visitors with pure intention and not left to be rotten ,in case of there were no poor visitors ,they all had to participate in eating it.

This sharing and offering food to the others with kind intention and love generated positive energy from participating with the dead’s souls so with such kind feelings ,the blessings would be in all aspects in life “Pa Ra Ka” it is apart from the vital energy of the deceased transported by the visitors consequently they returned with full blessings from their beloved dead ones besides loving the living who shared the food with them. The clever ancient Egyptian depiction over the symmetry of the false door, in the center point of the two realms while he is receiving the offerings represented as a signal that the offerings are the bridge which connected us with the dead of the underworld.
