Was reading through Heavens Mirror once more, and something got me thinking. In the Egyptian Book of the Dead there is written in the words of an initiate: "I am the Bennu bird, and upon earth shall come forth again".
The general idea has been that the Bennu bird, as the phoenix, represents the soul in its initiated form, its "final form". But doesn't this passage clearly state that the Bennu bird is a soul who still has to return to earth instead of beeing freed from the cycle of life?
