Regarding the Book of the Dead,

You must keep in mind, though, that the Book of the Dead is recopied and translated from much older texts by people who were far-removed from the ancient teachings. The Papyrus of Ani is a later version. When it was rewritten, the artists, not knowing what it was they were copying, made many errors, so there are many distortions to the original stories. Budge explains this in his book. In fact, later Egyptian history is one huge distortion of the original as "gods" who had one meaning in the first dynasties, have several different meanings in later dynasties, hence the confusion.

AND, our modern idea of "gods" may not be the ancient idea of a god. For instance, the Bible uses the term "sons of God" for actual beings or people. So can we conclude that the AEs also did the same thing? We have to attempt to read and study with the "mind of the ancient" if possible, and clear out of our heads any modern interpretations.

I am attempting to extract the original story from the time of Zep Tepi (the first time according to the Egyptian Pyramid texts), as Graham Hancock has pointed out many times in his books.

It is that "original story" we must focus on in order to have a clearer understanding of those mysteries.

Since the Holy Bible contains mysteries and clues to the past, and since the ancient people in the Bible may, in fact, be the same people being described in the Pyramid Texts, the Bible may the "key" to understanding ancient Egypt.
