Hi Kees:

There certainly is at the heart of Egyptian religion the idea of the tension of apparent opposites that the terms CHRST and anti-CHRST might symbolize. You find it in the ongoing quarrel between Horus and Sut. It exactly parallels the later NT contest between Christ and Satan. Both conflicts reflect the fact that the cosmos can only exist through the tension of opposites which must one day be finally reconciled. What is interesting is that while Egyptian religion made the two to be brothers--showing their fundamental necessity in the schema of things, Christianity made them absolute polar opposites with no hope of being brought back together in a final synthesis of healing. The result--as Jung saw--was to be fatal. Christianity has tended to project its shadow or 'anti' part of the equation out on to the other, as in President Bushs' habit of seeing the other side in terms of absolute nad utter evil--"not like us in any way."
