Curious.

The closest thing I believe the Egyptians had for what we call a "god" was "amun" which was reality itself which by its very nature is always hidden from us. In many ways "amun" would have been the natural logic that comprised nature and human understanding of it which was language itself.

Do you think the similarity of "Amma" to "amun" could be more than coincidental? Do you think "Amma" could represent all of reality?

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
