    Duat

    qadjuguckap324 The divinity shapes her body into a circle. Its feet touch its head from behind. With the hands it bears the goddess Nut, who stands holding the solar disc on her head. It is the Hereafter; The name probably comes from the root dua: “morning”, used to indicate what precedes the morning, that is, the night, and particularly the land of the night, the hereafter.

    The Spirit

      The spirit was divided in seven parts: – The Khu (spirit) – The Ba (soul) – The Ka (the double) – The Sekhem (power) – The Ab (feelings) – The Khaibit (the shadow) – The Ren (name) -The Khat (the physical body) The Ka, that is the double of every human being, was the most important. In fact it is the only one who remained “faithfully” bond to the dead person. That’s why it was essential that the body should be preserved or else even the Ka would dissolve itself.
